--The non-commissioned officers and privates of the Purcell Battery have presented to Lieut. Dan'l Hagerty an elegant silver pot, comprising a coffee pot, sugar dish, cream pot and bowl, valued at $300. The following inscription, engraved on one of the pieces, explains itself: ‘"Presented to D. Hagerty, 1st Lieut. Purcell Battery, by the non-commissioned officers and privates, as a token of their esteem for him as a gentleman and officer."’ This handsome service of silver was made by Mitchell & Tyler, of this city. It is really a flattering compliment, which is duly appreciated by the recipient.
