Scarborough, a citizen of that place, was shot and doubtless killed by Mr. Abram Bass, a planter.

Bass subsequently proceeded, at night, to the same house, and calling for Mr. Scarborough, demanded to know if the latter was "harboring his wife. " Some words ensued, during which a pistol went off accidentally in Mr. B's pocket. Mr. Scarborough then turned to go into the house, with the remark that if Mr. B. would wait, he would bring a candle and conduct him to his wife's room.

After the batteries at Warrenton shall have been reduced, the whole force will be first sent against Port Hellion. It is also stated that the small gunboat fleet has reached Yasoo river, by the way of Union Lake, and are "playing the mischief" in the rear of Vicksburg. It is also reported that some of the Union boats have reached Red river via Lake Providence. It is also reported that serious disasters have happened to the Union forces and troops, and that gunboats had been captured; but these rumors are not credited.
