Watts, who was noticed in your paper for his gallant conduct at Port Gibson, has again rendered his name a glorious one.--Just after the surrender of the city he went down to the landing to get a lemon from one of the boats, and had returned and was in the act of mounting his horse, when a Yankee captain, with a guard, informed him that the horse belonged to Uncle Sam.

" But the guard came to the conclusion that he was too brave a man to fool with, and decided to let him pass. Capt. Watts mounted his horse and rode out of town and we are happy to say that the gallant young here has arrived safely in Brandon, Miss., waiting to be exchanged
