The Alexandria riot again.

--It appears to be almost needless to attempt to stop the circulation of the most exaggerated accounts of the disturbances in the streets here on Monday last in some of the papers published at the North. They will make the most of very bad conduct, and, it is probable, very bad and too much whisky. However, as the whole matter is to be investigated, the public will soon see more about it.

A negro man made an affidavit on Tuesday that a young gentleman, (Mr. N.,) employed in the post-office here, had knocked him down on Monday. Mr. N. proved an alibi, and, of course, the falsity of the accusation, and was immediately released by the military, by whom he had been arrested.--Alexandria Gazette.

General Augur has directed that no heed be given to the demands of the civil authorities for the persons of any arrested for participating in the riot at Alexandria, but that all such demands be referred to his department head-quarters.
