Another slaver at Anguilla. -- Capt. william Eneas, of the schooner "Azorian," of this port, arrived from Anguilla on Sunday last, and informs us that, on the 10th instant, while he and his crew were searching for turtles' eggs on the North side of the beach, they observed a brig burnt to the water's edge. They also met a man on the beach, and Capt. Eneas asked him if any Spaniards were turtling on the Island. He replied that he did not know. Some of the Azorian's crew then walked towards the South side of the Anguilla, where they observed the crew of the burnt vessel, who, with their captain, came out from the bush towards them. They were all armed, and threatened to shoot the Azorian's crow if they ran. The Capt. of the burnt vessel asked Capt. Eneas whether he was a wrecker, and being answered in the affirmative, said, "I am wrecked here, and my brig and cargo are on the other side." He wanted Captain Eneas to accompany him there, but on the latter's saying he did not c
Tragedy in Franklin Parish. --The Louisiana Herald, published at Winnsboro, Franklin Parish, gives the annexed account of the tragical death of two citizens of that Parish on the 10th inst.

Shepherdstown,Va., Sept. 16, 1861. Since the recent skirmish at this place, our citizens have had a stirring time of it. Never before has "the oldest inhabitant" of the town witnessed such disorder, dismay and distress, since it has been a "local habitation." After the fight of the 10th instant, which afforded our people a foretaste of the "pride and circumstance of glorious war," we were enjoying a degree of comparative quiet. Desultory shots were exchanged between the hostile parties the two succeeding days, and on last Friday night, about 9 o'clock, the reverberating echoes of the loud-mouthed cannon produced a degree of surprise and alarm not easily described. This unexpected salute took every one by surprise and created no little alarm. At first, we felt inclined to <

To reach "Toney's" the Coal River was forded ninety-seven times during the night of the 11th inst., under a violent storm of rain, and in the darkness so profound than one's hand was invisible.
