Among these vu Corporal M n of New York, a young man of wealthy parentage, of attractive manners, good intellectual endowments?and withal "handsome as Apollo." At the request of some 6f his officers he was occasionally permitted to visit the lower floor, and on one occasion was permitted to leave the prison on parole, for the purpose of parchasing supplies. While thus passing through one of the main thoroughfares, M n was aocosted by a little girl, who presented him with a bouquet, at the sanie time pointing to a young lady on the opposite sido of the street as the donor. The corporal acknowledged the 4 gift by a polite bow, and proceeded upon his misston. The lady, apparently fascinated, followed him at a distance to his prison, and as he entered it aha reeinrocated his bow And leisurely walked away. For some inexplicable cause the Corporal wan not. ^ain permitted to go out, and a neero?I should have mentioned that ^uite a number of berrants were in prison?wan dispatched in his fitead. The negro had not proceeded far when he was met by the young lady referred to, and the sequel to tae interview was developed in a package with which he returned to the officers' Juarters. and delivered to Corporal M n. t was f.tund to eoncain a new suit of clothes and upon one garment was pinned a small card, neatly inscribed with the name of hi1 benefactress? t4Oi:ly tbia, and nothing more." Corporal M a instantly addressed himself to the task of epistolary composition, in which he gracefully acknowledged his receipt of the gift, and expressed his heartfelt thanks. This was delivered by the negro on the day following, and he returned with a package containing number of pocket-handkerchiefs, socks ana shirts! As in the firat instance, the only communication which aocompanied the gift was the donor's card. The Corporal again acknowledged his obligations by a polite note, whieh was duly delivered through the same medium. Thenceforth theCerporal was in daily receipt of the choicest dainties and a regular epistolary correspondence was carried on until the day of his releeae, which occurred on the 3d of January. A matrimonial engagement had been made during the interval, with the un derstanding that the parties would meet in Baltimore on the 1st of March next. I have omitted to state that the Corporal hed been sent back to his old quarters, bat having ascer aiaed that his fair inamorata daily promenaded within view of the officers' quarters, he obtained employment as a cook, and was thereafter unfailingly at his post to reciprooate the loving smiles of his betrothedShe had sent him her daguerreotype, which he frequently exhibited to me. It was a lovely image, and ono that would have required no at IM J A ^ -a? oouiicrM luuucomcui ui oirry Bipuie ids most frigid and lethargic fancy. I learned that she was of a wealthy family, and of as ri blood as was to be found among the F V '?, and her letters, I was assured, evinced that she was no less intelligent and refined When the (lad tidings of onr release came, the name of Corporal M n was found in the list The intelligence was quickly conveyed to his yearning admirer. We saw nothing of ber, however, as we mardhed through the straets of Biehmond, though the Corporal's longing vision was strained at every animate UVIOOI. Bat whan a haK wu ordered, a fine oar* riage, driven by a negro, suddenly mede its appearance, and halted at a abort diatanee from oar ranks. A ladj descended?there was a brief, bat earnest colloquy among the Confederate officers of oar guard, and the next moment the enraptured twain (Corporal M?n and bis sffianced) were face to face. A few words, the first they had ever exchanged in persod, were exchanged in subdaed, yet melting tones; their faces were for a moment lighted, as with a flame?the engagement was sacredly renewed?there was a fervent, thrilling pressure of their hands, and they separated. A circumstance is connected with the daguerreotype above referred to which deserves a passing notice. Before it left the prison the picture was taken from the esse and a small slip of paper closely written, and addressed to ... J J al _ hcu. jicviouau, was uopusiir. lueroiu saa vao daguerreotype then replaced. It ?u safely delivered to the Commander-in-Chief, a meeting of tho Cabinet waa called, and the day following there was aleak stopped?a mysterious leak, from high official circles, and which had inestimably benefitted the Rebels for many month*. flsrlli. REBEL ACCOUNT OF THE CAPTURE OF CEI>lR KEYS. From the Sarannah papers we learn that in t he Federal descent upon Cedar Keys, Florida, the enemy succeeded in taking nine prisoners, belonging to the 4th Florida Regiment. Two eompanies of Florida t-^ops stationed in the vicinity immediately went down to attaek the enemy and prevent their farther advance. The latest advices from Cedar Keys informs us that on Wednesday last, about 10 o'clock in the forenoon, a vessel of the federal fleet camo in sight and anchored off the harbor. Abont that time the schooner Stag, which wu ready t<ji iu* commenced weighing anchor. A* soon as the Yankees discovered this, they fired three shot* at her, all of whioh fell short. The owner ef the Stag then ran her ashore and set her on fire, the crew making their escape. The few soldiers, with a namber of ladies at W ay Key, attempted to make their escape in a list end reach the railroad, but were nnable to reach the shore. The Yankees, perceiving their citaation. sent ?kM t fp/im ika weaeAl ?ke^? ? ? a 1 via ' uvia *>*v ?wcvi iuioo uvaie, WflU unp'Urea the flat and pat the men in irons. The men in the flat, aome fifteen in number, bavins no arms, no resistance wai made. The Yankee* then went to the aehooner Ann Smith, lying t the wharf, eaptared the oaptain and at tempted to tow the sohooner out, bat finding thej could not succeed they burnt her. The schooner Fanny was ran np Crystal river, and sooceeded in making her escape. The Federals burnt the wharves at Cedar Keys, with everything on them, including about fifty bales of cotton and about 150 barrels of turpentine- The captain of the schooner Ann Smith, and some civilians who were cap* tared, were released after two days' imprisonment on taking the oath not to bear arms against the United States. The Yankees did not bombard the town as has been reported, bat destroyed all .he property within their reaeh.

He waa Indicted for an aaaault and battery with 1 intent to kill Alfred Thomas, also colored. Thomaj, the accuaer, waa the only wltoeaa ex- 1 ami ned on Friday.

I approaching pertr.eaa, aa 11 the part he had enacted In the event* wnich be waa relating, waa one which he had every reason to be proud of. He atated that In November laat he visited the . houae of Susannah Williams [Susannah, who waa In the court-room, la a genuine African In color and atyle, cuticle and Ivory, and la neither so filr nor so chaste as the scriptural character of the same name ] The witness stated that at Susannah's houae be met Henry Uurke (the accused) and that expressions of good will passed between them, f Burke, It will be necessary to explain, appears from the evidence to have been on the moM intimate terms with Susannah; In fact they aeem to have been man and wife In all things except the marriage ceremony ] When witness took his leave, Susannah requested him to call again. Accordingly, on the Saturday evening next ensuing, he " dropped In," and found the society of that colored charmer so faacir ating that he could not tear himself away. Midnight arrived, and Susannah suggested to wltne?s v>t the hour was rather 1 _a- c 1 a 1- -a ? ? - - hit?ior cuioiru urop < .. a mviiea mm 10 eiay ah night. -*tb, accepted the Invitation, and went to i d - h Susannah?Urst nailing the outer door l.-?t lu lta frame, at her u^gestlon. In answer to a question of Mr Norri?, counsel for defense, witness *a d be did not recollect whether Susannah said it was to keep Henry Ba^ke out. The witness resuming, said he went to bed and covered his head up. Counsel for defense suggested that this was probably because he was ashamed; but the witness repelled the imputat'on, and said he always covered hia head up when he went to bed. (Susannah and one or two other mahoganycolored females showed their 1 vorlea at this point, when it was suggested by counael that the wltneasea had bast not hear each others' evidence. All except the witness on the stand, were accordingly removed from the court room 1 The witness, resuming, said he had not been in bed long when Susannah exclaimed, " Henry Burke is coming down stairs." Witness uncovered bis head at this juncture, and discovered Burke approaching the bed with a stick aa thick M his /u/1tnaM'?\ wviet Mr Vjorris asked the witness if Burke (track him with the stick. Witness said not that he remembered, and being asked what Burke was doing with the stick said be was striking the bed with it Burke then attacked witness.who was still U bad, with a razor, and bad cut him several times with it when witness raised himself and drew from under the head of the bed (Susannsh told him It waa thers.) a pistol. He fired three tlm'S at Burke, who at the third t>hot exclaimed,' vou son of a b?h, you have shot me " The conflict seems to have ended at this point in the defeat and flight of the assailant V\ ltness was confined nearly two months to the house by the wounds he received On Saturday, Dr Butt testified that hedres?ed the wounds of Alfred Thomas, and found on bis bcdv eighteen or twenty cuts, some of which were of a serious character W ltnesaes were called to testify to the good, (or considering bis eouivocal relation* with Kimn. nab, rattier.) the quiet and orderly character of the prisoner.

The new calling we Intended to speak of Is an buinble one, and waa suggested by the unprecedented wet weather, and consequent mud, of the last month or two, As long as the weather was only wet, and the roads muddy, the boot-blacks drove a flourishing trade ; but there came a time ?some weeks since?when "wet" did notexpress strongly enough the muggy state of the atmosphere and the soaked condition of all terrestlal things, and when "muddy" was hardly significant of the condition of the nether Integuments of the olflcers and soldiers who carre acroaa the Potomac coated from head to foot with accumulations of "sacred soil" several inches In thickness.
