The Yankees on the Chowan. --On Thursday last, two Yankee. gunboats ascended the Chowan river N. as far as Harrellsville, in Hertford county. About 300 men landed and marched up into the village, burned several houses and destroyed bout 10,000 pounds of Government bacon; which had most imprudently been allowed to remain there. They also robbed many private houses, carried off ten or twelve mules and killed some that they could not get away. As they were returning to the gunboats, some al houses and destroyed bout 10,000 pounds of Government bacon; which had most imprudently been allowed to remain there. They also robbed many private houses, carried off ten or twelve mules and killed some that they could not get away. As they were returning to the gunboats, some of our cavalry came upon them, killed several of them and wounded others. Only one of our men was wounded (slightly.) Harrellsville is about two miles from Chowan river, and about twenty miles below Murfreesboro'.
Capture of a numerous buffalo. --The renegade and buffalo, Capt. Hoggard, who has been so long a terror to Eastern Carolina, was captured on Friday night last, and is now a prisoner in the Confederate lines. Hoggard has been depredating on the people of Bertie, Gates, Chowan, and counties contiguous, for some time past, at the head of one hundred renegades, who, like himself, should have deemed it a dear privilege to fight for their native State. Having been considerably annoyed by members of the 62d Georgia regiment, (Col. Griffin.) Hoggard has been lying in ambush for Capts. Bowers and Davis, of the above command, and had but recently sent them a message that he would capture them at an early day, or lose his life in the attempt. But sometimes would be captors are themselves captured, and such has been the late of the unfortunate Hoggard. Hearing that Hoggard would visit his wife on Friday night last, Captain Bowers dismounted his command and proceeded cautiously to the res

ry unhealthy for them. But we will not anticipate. If the events to follow the capture of Plymouth are indeed to be important, the fact will soon be known. But whether they are or are not; the taking of that town is an event highly cheering, and in itself of great importance. We recover the Roanoke valley entirely to Albemarle Sound, and that is a great deal.--It is needless to speak of its advantages.--They are understood and appreciated by our people. We should add that the Chowan river, which empties itself into the Albemarle Sound near Edenton, has for its tributaries the Meherrin, Nottoway, and Blackwater rivers — the latter of which, at least, the enemy has employed to his advantage in his movements upon Southside Virginia. With a formidable iron-clad to keep guard in the sound, the enemy cannot safely continue his aquatic performances thereabouts. Nor can he carry on with impunity his commerce for military purposes through the Dismal Swamp, via the Pasquotank rive
The news. All was quiet yesterday on the Richmond and Petersburg lines. The troops of the two armies have as much as they can do to keep from freezing. Field operations are out of the question. There comes to us a report from Petersburg that a column of the enemy, ten thousand strong, is moving up the Chowan river, with the design of striking the railroad at Weldon. Nothing confirmatory of this report has been received at headquarters here. Rosser's cavalry are said to have had a slight skirmish with Sheridan's men, on last Monday morning, near Edingburg, in the Valley, during which the enemy were driven back beyond Woodstock. We mentioned some time since that General Hood had been relieved of the command of the Army of Tennessee, and superseded by General Dick Taylor. General Taylor's command of the army is believed to be only temporary. In taking leave of the army, General Hood issued the following address: "Headquarters Army Tennessee, "Tupelo, Mississi
less resume active operations against Richmond and Petersburg so soon as the weather and roads will permit. Ravages of the enemy on James river. Some days ago a party of Yankee troops landed from a gunboat at the plantation of Mr. Charles F. Wren, on James river, and having burnt the houses, carried off all the cattle and grain from the plantation. Rumored raid on Weldon. The Petersburg Express states that the Yankee raid recently reported as advancing on Weldon from the Chowan river has retreated. Yankee peace Commissioners. The report circulated yesterday that Pierce, Fillmore and Chase had been appointed commissioners to confer with Messrs. Stephens, Hunter and Campbell was entirely without foundation.--The latest news we have received from the North is through the Yankee papers of last Monday, which were published before the news had reached there of the appointment of our commissioners.--Besides, there is no reason to suppose any persons will be speciall
