Recapture of Negroes.

--Some twenty-three negroes, found in arms on the river plantation of President Davis, at Hurricane, thirty miles below Vicksburg, arrived in Meridian Tuesday morning. Ten of them are the property of the President, and six belonged to his brother. They were captured by a squadron of Wirt Adams's cavalry, under command of Lieut. Harvey. The negroes fired on our troops when they approached, but fortunately inflicted no injury. What disposition will be made of them is not yet known.--Jackson Mississippian.
