lery from their positions both at Fredericksburg and at the Bernard House. This they kept up until about nine o'clock, when, having massed their troops in front of Marye's Heights, they buried their columns against the stone-wall — the first time unsuccessfully; for Barksdale, the gallant Mississippian, with his band of heroes, met the shock of battle and nobly buried it back. The enemy pause and resort to artifice. A flag of truce is exhibited, and in an evil moment the gallant Colonel (Griffin, of the 18th Miss,) received it.--They enemy thus discover that instead of holding the Stonewall with a line of battle, Barksdale's men are so stretched out that they are barely guarding it with a line of skirmishers.

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.

Resisting the officers. --Some little excitement was created yesterday morning, near the Second Market, by a difficulty between officers Perrin and Griffin on one side and two Confederate officers on the other. A row having occurred at a bar-room near the Theatre, Mr. Perrin took the creator of it, a soldier, to the station-house. On his way thither a Confederate Captain, claiming to be a friend to the man in custody, requested Perrin to let him off, as his furlough had just expired and tumbling about in the mud for some time, however, P. got the better of his antagonist, and dragging him out of the culvert, succeeding in carrying him up stairs and locking him up also. The natural inquiry will be, what became of policeman Griffin and the companion of the Captain during this engagement? Well, no sooner had the two first-named hitched, than the other party pitched into Griffin, and on P.'s disposing of his man, and seeing the dilemma in which G. was, he gallantly went to
