attack on a Baltimore ship by a Confederate battery--Premature Reports of a movement of General Banks's division — the war in Missouri--a skirmish in Western Virginia, &c.
From the Baltimore papers, of the 10th, we gather the following items:
Attack on a Baltimore ship — Exploit of the gun-boat Daylight. United States Gun-Boat Daylight, Off Cape Henry, Oct. 11, 1861.
Yesterday, at the close of a heavy gale, when had lasted for sixty hours, it was reported by the officer of the deck that a battery, whose existence had been previously unknown to us, situated on Lyanhaven Bay, had opened fire upon the American ship John Clark, of Baltimore, which had arrived from Havre the day previous, and, anchoring in the bay during the gale, with two anchors down, had dragged within its range.

In fact, the additional valuation may be said to fall bodily upon the city.
The tax for 1860 was 3-5-6 mills, amounting in the aggregate to $5,440,610.49.
The city firemen are making preparations for a grand tournament on Thanksgiving Day. The whole department will take part, and the spectacle, it is expected, will be one of the most exciting ever witnessed in this city.
Instead of having the Union tica Colonization Society considers the practicability of the removal of the colored race from America to Africa.
We make the following extract:
The census of 1860 gives the number of free colored persons at 499,709, and slaves at 3,972,343, making a total of 4,440,052.
