After we had run them a good way, Sergeant Wampler, than whom a better soldier never fought, now a Southern Methodist preacher, threw his hand to his shoulder and said: Captain, I am wounded. I answered, after placing my hand on my right thigh: I am wounded, too; both of us are badly wounded. I told my first lieutenant, Kennedy, to take charge of the company, and I stood and watched them go out of sight on a run. Our men captured, so I understood, about 1,500 prisoners. Our regiment went into battle with about 500 men, 5 per cent. of whom were killed and wounded. I have seen it stated in papers that the Cadet Corps captured that artillery. If they captured any artillery, it was not the six pieces that my company fired left oblique into. That battery was left oblique from my company, and the cadets were beyon

Your best way, added Sears to the friends of order, will be to advise Lieutenant-Governor Colden to send the stamp papers from the fort to the inhabitants. To appease their wrath, Colden invited Kennedy to receive them on board the Coventry. They are already lodged in the fort, answered Kennedy, unwilling to offend the people.

the Grand Jury postponed it till this morning, with a view to investigate the circumstances connected with the seizure of muskets at pier 12, North River. Another seizure of arms by the New York police. Capt. Hutchins, of the New York police, on Wednesday afternoon received information that the schooner Caspian, of Rockland, Me., Capt. Raymond Porter, lying at pier No. 23, East River, had on board a quantity of muskets bound to a Southern port. He communicated the fact to Superintendent Kennedy, from whom he received directions to seize the muskets as contraband goods. Procuring a gang of stevedores he went to the vessel, and finding only the mate on board, who made no opposition to a search, he removed the hatches and overhauled the cargo. In the hold, stowed away forward beneath an assortment of other merchandize, were found twenty-five cases of muskets marked "E. B." On inquiry of the mate, Capt Hutchins was informed that the schooner was bound to Carthagena, but a clo
terday afternoon, one of the steamboat squad of the Metropolitan police repaired to the First precinct police station-house, in Broad street, and reported that a lot of muskets and other "contraband." articles were being shipped on board the steamship Montgomery at pier 12 North river. The officer in command immediately telegraphed the facts to police head-quarters, asking for instructions how to proceed. In about five minutes afterwards a dispatch was received from General Superintendent Kennedy, commanding the police, to seize upon the property forthwith. The receipt of this decidedly unequivocal order threw the police into a great state of confusion. The steamer was to start for Savannah at three o'clock, and it then only lacked five minutes of the appointed time. Instantly summoning about a dozen of his trustiest men, Sergeant Wemyss started off for pier 12, and arrived on board just as the last lot of muskets were placed in the hold, and the captain was giving orders to get

Welch to deliver the muskets named in the writ marked L., and the "contraband goods" were taken from the Seventh avenue Arsenal to a storehouse down town,

The ammunition seized on last Wednesday by the New York Metropolitan police, on board the steamship Huntsville, of the Cromwell line, was on Friday given up by Superintendent Kennedy, in obedience to the demands of the Sheriff.
