[B?OOND DISPATCH.} Fir* Island, August 1*2 ?While one of th? sailing boats attached to the Surf Hotel wis cruising outside his morning, it discovered a yawl-boat making lor shore. Upon coming alongside, sixteen persons were found on board, who belonged to the pilot boat James Funk, of New York. The brig Estelle, the tng Sarah Boyee, the brig Richard, the bark Bay State, and the schooner Atlantic, were captured and burned by the Confederate steamer Tallahassee, com manded b.v John Taylor Wood, off ih?j coast yesterday afternoon. Tbe pilot who brought np an Italian bark this afternoon reports that on Thursday, at nine o'clock in the morning, about six miles contbeast of Sandy Ilook, he saw a steamer showing the American flag She came close nnder the bark's stern, but did not hail. She then sighted the pilot-boat James Funk, and, hoisted the rebel flag, captnred the boat aud put a pirate crew on board, and steamed off toward Montauk Point, the pilot-boat follow ing at the same time. The pilot also saw a schooner three miles to windward. All her sails were cut loose, in a sinking condition, the pirate having evidently ecnttled her. The pirate craft is a small "neutral' Eng lish-built vessel, schooner-rigg"d, painted white, with red bottom, and carries a pivot gun for and ait, and loar broadside guns, and is very slow. The pilot-boat is, perhaps, able to out sail her. A passenger by the Evening Star reports she wa? chased tour hours vesterday by the pirate, who fired three shots at her, but she outsailed the enemy. This statement was not included in the purser's report to the press. PENNSYLVANIA LEGISLATURE. Yisit to Chumbersburg?The Burnt District Inspected.

Upon arriving here, the visitors were taken in charge by a committee of citizens, and es coTted through the burned districts. The scene can never be properly described. Fonr squares in either direction, private houses and stores have been thrown into one black ruin. The order of the invaders had been to spare churches, and none of these were destroyed, exc<pt those in closo proximity to residences.

Then came the "tug of war." The beys assaulted her in front and fltnk. "Take me," ma'am said one. " I know how to pick peaches,'' cried another. "Don't have him . be can t do rothin',"' yelled a hundred young aspirants, shoving, crowding, pushing, and using every available means, fair or foul, to get the earof tbe panic-stricken female.
