CaiMi*aL CotraT.?Yesterday Michael Ma rage and William Matthews, soldiers, were tried on charges of assault and battery and restating an officer OfiU*r Samuel T. Larcombe waa knocked down and tamped on by these two soldiers, In front of Mrs Courtney's, on the Island, In the evening of November (Mb They were found guilty of assault and battery only, and were sentenced s&ch to at x inontha Imprisonment (a the county jail and to pay a fine or fil. Charles Stephens, a free negro, was arraigned for stealing 'aoout the 20th September last) a carpet bag from Mr. Allen Pearce, which contained a gold and a silver watch, a ring, a Mexican pimi handkerchief, silver spoons, and many other costly article*, besides a number of deeds, mortgages. notes, receipts, and valuable papers Stephens is from New York, and came here aa camp follower with one of the regiments. The "bag and a portion of Ita contents were found in bis possession, and he acknowledged to Justice Callan, st his examination, and to officer Faytnan, at the jail, that be had taken It. He aaid he had ttirewn the papers Into the canal, and that the ring hurt his finger and be gave It to a boy on the canal That it hurt his finger Is not to oe wondered st, ss the owner testified that It weighed more than two ounces. It was of California gold, without any set, and was valued at from f50 to .-WO Those articles which were recovered bv Mr. Pearce were exhibited by him to the court and Jury, and were of the aggregate value of from S300 to 8400 Among other things was the handkerchief. which Mr. Pearce aaid he valued at from $50 to 960 The counael and other gentlemen In court manifested considerable cariosity to sea this valusble ' wiper," and It was passed from hand to hand. It Is of fine graaa, of almost similar texture with[grass linen, snd was beautifully embroidered. [Toe genuine pint handkerchief*, manufactured in Mexico, are sometimes valued at a moch higher price than this one ] Ftephens waa convicted and sentenced to three years impriaooment in the penitentiary. A DrrscTivs's 9quabbls ?Below we print a note?an advertisement?from Washington's indigenous "Detective Allen," sgalnst the western " Detect}vOklien," now employed by the Government at this point to great advantage to the publie service. We print It, not becauae we have the slightest sympathy with Mr. E. J. Allen's assailant, but Iri accordance with ourcnstomsry advertising rules, allowing the party paying hia money to sute his grievances after hla own fashion Hla letter, as s whole, cannot injure the party at whom It is aimed. If but on account of its very bad temper snd worse taste We msvsdd, that while we are certain that the western " Detective Allen" has msde an unfortunste mistake in judging of our lawj and police practices from the standpoint of tb> runaway negro. we know well that the public ia greatly indebted to his energy. sagacity and fidelity, for important services rer.dered to the military authorities here, in tb* cor.duct of police affairs growing out of nec.?sary measures to repress the rebellion: r To the Public.? Having been asked by a number of my fellow-c (ttte*s how It waa that I loaned myself to the s ?*Htlonists for the purpose of getting up that report, which was read before the Sena? laat v I deem It due to myself snd to them to ss-^ u publicly as I can, that the report Is not m I ^ never in mv life connected with sn /thing so mean and dirty. It Is not the produ' 0f a0y District officer, but waa worked UP b fa person from Chlcsgo, Illinois, who Is tit' re It Ignorant of our laws, but has Impudence en augh to meddle with our local Institutions, 'itbough the Government is pledged to protei t Ahem He signs the nsme of " E J. Allen" to the report, snd thst has deceived many of my friends la order that the deception may not be again practiced successfully, I beg my friend# to understand, aa well as the detectives of the District who have any experience in arresting criminals, that 'E J.Allen" meana " Pinkerton," who is well known to detectives here and in the large western cities. The services of Pinkerton snd his gsng will hardly remunerate the Government for the expense of keeping them; especially If they are employed only In making reports for the purposes of abolition disturbers of the peace of the country. o It* a . r. allis, Detective Officer. A Sc??XSTio!t ?Mr. Wallatk: I beg for space enough to suggest to parties about Alexandria whs nave suffered by theft and the destruction of property by soldiers?and who should, I think, be satisfied, by this time, that they have nothing to expect, in the way of prevention or redress, from the officers In commsnd?thst tbeyprepsrs, without further delay, to present their claims to Congress, sccompanled by detalla of facts and loss,with such prooft by respectable neighhors aa can be obtained. I would reeommend a like course in cases where property (such aa land, buildings. Umber, Ac.) has been taken or used by competent military authority for forts, camps, Ac. Wealthy secessionists (some of them actively engaged In the rebel service), who have influential friends at court, have succeeded, I am c^tdtbly Informed, in obtaining both protection and compensstlon for their property; but t^? loyal, the I widows snd the poor, who are no\?0 fortunate .. to be secessionist with powerful Union r?*.,tives and friends, must adopt som ? other ir'saw of obiSlT^oTw o'f !Lnd protection from injury, and 1 know of fl0ne better than the suggested application to Cow'.em. A Union Man. A SoLDiaa ? A Volunteer from !?' ?:? atde of the river met leveral soldiers of rvi. -0.8. Cavalry, who are stationed on Ms 7ir^d avenue, near the Capitol, on Tuesday .jgbt, who asked him to take something to drink. !He accepted the Invitation, and took something so often that he became oblivloua, and In that condition was robbed of a considerable amount of money he had been entrusted with. He made complalat, and waa taken to the barracks of the Cavalry, where he identified one man, who waa arretted bv the oUlcers and cammltted to jail by Justice Ferguson. Two other men, supposed tb be of the party, are missing, and It ia probable have deserted. None of the money has been recovered. Dismisskd ?Yesterday morning officer Allen arrested Jaa Handa spon a charg%of taking let(ters from the Post Office directed to campa below the Eastern Branch without proper authority. It appeared on examisatlon before Justice Donn that Hands had been employed in carrying the malla to several cmps; but recently one of the camps employed another person to carry the mall for tnatcamp. Upon coming to the city the new carrier discovered that Hands had taken his mall, and this caused the Issue of thewsrrsot. There being no proof of intentional offense, the case was dismissed. TaiATaa.?? The Seven Sisters" continues the card of the theater, filling the bouse nightly, up atairs and down The spectacles and tableaux as now perfected are extremely effective, and are undoubtedly the finest displsys of the sort ever seen here We notice, however, by both the dexter snd sinister digits of the guardian angel" that dollar jewelry Is supposed to circulate to some extent in pxradiae, and to be the correct thing for beatific wear. The piece baa another anomaly In the shape of a itnpid Yankee;?but perhaps theaa little discrepancies are Intentional aa among the wonderments of the piece. _____ DisTTiaiiie a Wsssiro ?A wedding party on the Island waa diaturbed laat night by a trio of (ay girls, whose names are respectively Msry on nelly, Cornelia Rollins, and Cornelia Desimond. It seems that Mary claimed some sort of right to have a say In the matter of the bridegroom bestowing hla affectlona, and brought the two Cornelias with her to back her position. They were all taken In charge by the Metropollt?a Police, and duly fined by the justice before whom they were taken.

The Smithsonian Institution being a public building, and parties having heretofore been allowed (by some great mismanagement) to listen to lecture* on "literature," Ac., therein, without being charged an entrance fee, I greatly fear that laboring men and their wives acd families might In many caaes attempt to gain admittance, and thus mar the pleasure of select "pay" hearers.

WHOLESALE DESTRUCTION OF COTTON AND CORN CROPS, A SLAVE STAMPEDE AT NORFOLK PARTICULARS WITHHELD "FOR PRUDENTIAL REASONS." m Baltimobi. Dec. 13?The Norfolk Day Bock baa dates from Peneacola to December 3. There wai no further fighting. Gen. Bragg hourly anticipated a renewal of the attack from Fort Plckena. The Federal veseela were Sitting la and cut of the harbor la a moat bewildering manner to tbe rebels. Sometimes there would be a doten in the evening, and all but two disappear before morning. The Norfolk Day Book of Thursday was oonsidersbly eicited in relation to the rumor that Norfolk la to be attacked It suggests additional obstructions to tbe entrance to tbe harbor. If not done by tbe military, It urges that the City Councils take It In hand. At Richmond, on Wedneedsy. tbe war excitement was high. The sto. m of war was expected to buret momentarily aomewhere A dispatch, dated Memphis. December 10, says that New Madrid is now fortified. Two regiments were sent tbe*t yesterday. It Is rumored that the contemplated attack on Cairo has been abandoned. Tbe 'ron ram 'Manassas" arrived at Columbus on Sunday. The Richmond Dispatch of Wednesday eoatalna tbe following mall news: Tbe Charleston Courier of the #th says that oa Wednesday night a detachment of tbe Beaufort artillery, numbering twenty-two men, passed ever to the island and visited Beaufort, where the utter desolation and abandonment was relieved only by the presence of one light and the barking of a dog. There were no algna of the enemy either on land or w?.ter. Our men then proceeded to the work of deatruction. Tbe chief object was to destroy tbe crops of cotton and tbe provisions on Paris Island, which, being near to the enemy, was crowded by the negroes who had Cocked there to escape from tbe control of their owners. Owing to want of boats, this object wae but partially effected. Seven hundred bales of cotton and seven boa. dred bushels of corn were burnt on Dr Thomas Fuller's plantation. Returning to the battery, the plantation work of destruction was resumed, and the torch waa successlvsly applied to tbe cotton of twelve other plantations, andtbeooatents of five barns were emptied and consumed Seventeen cropa amounting to nearly 4,080 balsa were thus effectually removed from tbe range of the destroyer. Tbe Courier also says the English war steamer Racer had arrived off Charleston harbor on Friday. She brought dispatches to the British Consul. The Racer left neit day for Port Royal The Courier" of the 9th says: Oa Friday last there were la sight and near thts harbor tbe steamship Susquehanns, two side-wheel gun boats, a storeshlp, a large schooner, supposed to be laden with coal, and the Sweedlah bark ??Mlnord." We hear that this last vessel was bound to thts port, supposing there was no blockade, which want of Information will be unfortunate for her owners, as she will no doubt be seized. 4The Montgomery (Ala.) " Mall," of tbs fitb Inst , congratulstes their readers at the report that old Harvey Brown has died of a wound received In the late fi^bt at Fort Plckena Passengers ap from that city, this morning, say that tbe report Is firmly believed, but not positively known to be true. The Richmond Dispatch has smong Its telegrams the following " Sntwrt if s ?<* e?sr? Bold At II ftkt Hiiiissi ?Charleston, Dae. 10 ? The Cbarleaton Courier of this morning says that the Lincoln fleet seised a schooner on Saturday, and that a steamer was seen passing on Monday with a floating battery or dock la tow.
