The battle at Newbern--Authentic particulars. We had an interview last evening with Capt. Edept, of Company "B." 1st Maryland regiment, who arrived yesterday from North, Carolina, on official business. It will be remembered that the gallant company commanded by Capt. E., after re-enlisting for the war, came to Richmond from Manassas on furlough of sixty days, about the time of the surrender of Roanoke Island, and that every man at once relinquished his furlough and proceeded to North Carolina, to aid in resisting the advance of the Federal army into the interior. They were stationed in Fort Allen during the time of the fight at Newbern, and rendered efficient service. The following particulars are furnished by Capt. Edelin, and may be relied upon: The enemy, with fifty-six gunboats, approached Newbern on Wednesday, and dropped anchor for the night some twenty miles below the town. Early on Thursday morning they were reinforced, and commenced landing troops below Fort Dix

Richmond Light Guard. --We notice with pleasure that our esteemed townsman, Mr. Chas. M. Wallace, is engaged, with Lieuts. Nicholas and Pearce, in reorganizing the old "Richmond Light Guard," which, it will be remembered, served throughout the campaign in the West with Gen. Wise, and was captured, together with Capt. G. A. Wallace and 2d Lieut. J. C. Little, on Roanoke Island, after one of the hardest fought battles of the war, taking into consideration the great odds arrived against our little force there. These officers, with their experience in the field and camp, are well qualified for their positions as company officers, and we are glad to learn that the friends of Charlie Wallace are now enrolling their names in this popular corps. One feature in this organization which we approve, is the fact that they will not take substitutes, thus making it a select volunteer company. Capt. G. A. Wallace will no doubt soon be exchanged, when they will gladly welcome their old Captain
