(From the Cape Cod Republican, August 25.1 Two fishing schooners of Harwich? the I). Rtlis, Captain Jahial Baker, and the Diadem, Captain .loeepb Bobbins? arrived at this port (Harwich) on Saturday lost, having been boarded off Hbelburne a few days previous by the officer* of tbe pirate Tallahassee The crewa of the tlaber men stats thai seeing a largo schooner burned by the Tal lahassee a snortJdlstAnco from them, sod as they could see noeo or the crew takeo off or lesve tbe vessel, they na turaliv felt alarmed for their own safety, and as any endeavor to escape with their vessels would be useless, they at once trimmed their galls, secured the bclma bo that the schooners would make toward the shore, and sfter securing what they coald, they took to their boats to go ashore, but were rood overhauled by a boit's crew of the pirate* who ordered them on board the Tallahassee There II was decided tbnt as the two fishing vessels were within three miles of tbe English coast they were in neutral waters, and were released, with the assurance that had thev been outride of that their vessels woe Id bayo shared the fate of the other nu merous victims of their piracy T1?e crews then returned to tbelr respective vessels, and arrived home as above stnied, with lull faros of mackerel. Tbe crew of the fishing schooner Mercy A. Howee, of Chatham (sunk by the Tallahassee on tbe 1Mb Instant, latitude 42 degrees, longitude ?fl degrees.) arrived homo at Chatham on Monday evening last One of tbe crew states tbnt on being taken aboard tbe pirate be Imme diately recognized the sailing master as one Norris, tor merly of Hysnnis. and was at tbe time of the building of Mlnot's ledgn ligtitbonse engaged wl'h him on that work. It la also reported that there are other Cape CM men on board tbe Tallahassee , who umuired particularly concern ing various persons in this vicinity with whom they were acquainted. It will certainly be remarkable if others of our Aaher men etjeapo from the bonds of this pirate, as sh? is u fist sailer, and determined to do all the mischief possible. But we trust tbe day of retribution Is not far distant, when this piratical crer of lbs Tallahassee will meet with their just deserts. 1BR TALLAII VS3EK AT HALIFAX [From the Halifax San, Atigu?t. 19.] Tbe cotorious Confederate steamer 1 allnhss?ee, Captain i John T. Woods, arrived in port yesterilav morning. Ibis i vessel was formerly a blockade rnnner, known as tba Ata'anta. and Is said to be one of the swiftest steamers afloat, she is sn iron vessel, propelled by a screw, painted lead color, and carries three guns, or.e of which is a very heavy Perron Her crew numbers somewhere about otie hundred and thirty men, of diffcrent nations; among tbem there ere a good many Southerners. She was commissioned on the 4th of August, snd left Wilming ton on tbe 9th. since then she is said to bave captured snd destroyed about thirty nine vessels The Tallahassee lost her mainmast wh?n In contact with the Adriatic, one of tbe ships captured off Sandy nook She came in bore for coat, and received a cargo from tho Prussian brig Marie Griefswsld, wMch arrived a lew days ago from Bermnda. The reported treatment of passengers found aboard captured vessels ts worse than tbat of any previous Southern prtvstosr. The first vessel taken was tbe schooner Carroll, laden with onal, near F<re Island. She w*a bonded in $lu i)00, to be delivered in New York, whiab showed tbey bad agents there. Tbe passengers snd crews of the vessel* destroyed have been ruthlessly plundered, without respect to age, sex or oouditioo. It >s likely tbat her destructive career will soon be cut short.

Finally, Captain I.ibert, our Diviskn Adiitant General, promulgated an order to hire the troops in marching order at daylight? and at daylight tbo com mand was ready to march.

Tho Twenty second New York were ad vanced as skirmishers, and pushed up close to the woods, where tbey encountered a line of infantry skirmishers of the enemy, with whoas tbey instantly became engaged, while a battery ormmooced shelling them back witb the utmost fury. The regiment, although not an old one. stood the Are for a wblle as staunch sa veterans of the old school, but were gradually losing ground when sapport was sent to them. Meanwhile Merrltt, on tbe right of the road fthe Shepherdstown and Winchester), was hotly skirmishing, ss tbe sharp rattle or muskets and oarblaee sufficiently attested General Mcintosh coming up, be took a post tlon a little in the rear and about the centre of the line, on tbe left of tbe railroad.
