Tbs Case or thi Camiko* R islss ?Thedisclosure of matters Implicating certain offlcera connected with tbla regiment has called for a more thorough Investigation than baa yet been msde. Preparatory to This Lieutenants Augmt Volkbausen and L. Aacber, of the Cameron Rifles, made affidavits last Wednesday evening relative to these affairs. Lieut. Volkhauaen's testimony wss very fully given, and was corroborated by that of Lieut. Aacher. The affldav t of the first named officer states that on the 15th c>f October part of company F of the Cameron Rifles was at Mr. Cocke's farm, Rose Hill, Va. Two of them came back to the camp at Hunter's chapel, bringing two horses. October 17th the regiment advanced to Anandale, and company F was picketed at the house of a Mr. Sweeney. Mr 8 told the witresa, Lieut Volkbausen, that the Saturday nlgbt previous bis stable was broken opsn and his two horses stolen. Witness spoke to his captain, R Koentg, about It. Upon the request or entreaty of the witnesa, captain Koenlg s*nt to the ?*amp to have them brought back, out they were stepped at headquarters. Rose Hill, and Col Betzer kept them in bis possession until the witness tcld Captain Koenlg that if steps were not taken to return th^ animals to their owner he would report the case to the General of the division. I'pun this one of the horses was returned by Lieut Koenig, brother of the captain, whosMd the other horae had ran away. Having reaaon to believe the atatement'in'-orrect, wit^est went with a letter from captain Koenig, asking the return of the other horae to Mr. Sweeney. Witness testified that Col. Betzer assured him on hla "word of honor" that the other horae bad run away. Witness Inquired of the men at headquarters If they knew of a horae running away, and they answered in the negative Upon returning to camp witness heard, he thinks from Adjutant Woellmer, that the colonel had sold bate horses to one Mensell. Coram'.tsary Louts Ascher has since told witness that Sergt Graff brought two horses to this city, and the colonel ordered him to sell the same, which he did. The afternoon of the ISth October witness accompanled the colonel to Anandale to reconnoiter. Three men went to Mr Cocke'a farm and seized upon a dun horse. The colonel rode up to the farm and. at the entreaty of Mrs. Cocke and Capt. Cocke, ordered the men to let the horse go, and promised to protect Ue farmers from the depredations of bis men. As soon as they left, the colonel called the witness b-tek, and ordered him to stay with three men at the border of the wood till he (t*>e colonel) got out of sight, and then seize the dun colt and two others with it. This order the witness did not execute; but that same night he saw the horses pass by tbe form wh*re he was on guard, and tbey were taken to tbe colonel's hrsdquarters. Witness has since heard that the dun colt was tiken, bat does not know It. Auoui urc li'U wi ?un iuvihu wurn iue pay"* master, Major Marston waa paving off the companies, witness was ordered by Lieut Col yon Gerber, since deceased, to arrest Quarter master Simon on the charge of steeling 400 pairs of shoes, and selling them to Mr Dupre, of Washington, D. C Mr Dupre b?ing present at the time of the ord>*r gave the history of the sale. Dup'e offered four hundred pair of shoes to Gen. Meigs for government to purchase and the General consenting to buy tint number of shoes from him, Dupre bought them of Quartermaster Simon. Lieut. Col Gerber told the witness to give Simon notice that if he would return the money to Dupre be would release him; but at tbesame time told witness to pefer charges against Simon. Last Saturday night, November 23d, witness told Colonel Betx>'r, In the Adjutant's tent, in camp, (the Adjutant being present,) that It was bis duty, and was long before, to recover the shoes for the regiment, the men being almost birefooted. He answered that he didn't think be was responsible for the doings of the quartermaster?the Adjutant and others were present. On the 17tb, witness went on foot from headquarters, at Rose Hill, to Anandale, and met at Uie church some men of the regiment who came riding on a pair of beautiful donkeys They were brought to Headquarters, and witness afu-rward heard, from Lieut L. Ascber , that the Colonel Lad taken possession of them, and presented th?m to a party in this city, the Colonel bavi-ig stared in a letter that he bought them. The testimony of Lieut. Asber was also taken, and corroborates the evidence of Lieut Volkhau> sen in many particulars The evidence is for transmission to the proper military authorities, who have the case under consideration.

The Obsttvrr of the 23d has the following: "The firing, as wo stated yesterday, began from Fort Pickena The whole of their fire daring the morning waa directed at the steamer Times, bat with eery little cffect.

We think the greatest damage done waa to one of the ships which ventured too near to tar batteries. The editor proceeds with a tirade of abuse against the Yankees in general, and Gen Brows in particular, speaking of the latter as foliows:? ' But the meanest and most contemptible act was the execution of the threat made some time ago by that prince of hardened acoundreis, Harvey Brown, that he would not respect hospitals ? One shot was so well aimed at the building that it went throu^^t, but did bo damage Tbe baseness of this act places this blackguard below the lowest cut-throat and vagabond of Maw York."
