A D).utul~ Sri IUN.-A man named Ma
son, a resident of Fairlax County, Va., hut a
ntative of Pennmsylvania, was hung near Gor
dronsville a tpw days since. T[he division
commlantded by' Gen. Longstreet was pushing
for a point which it was known the enemy
desired to reach and occupy. As thme column
was pressing forward, a courier, pretending
to have orders from Gen. Lee, halted each
brigade until he reached the lust, when Lotng
street, observing the movement, desired to
know what it imeant. He was told that Gen.
Le~e had ordered the halt, and upon demand
ingl to know the authority for the order from
Gen. Lee, was pointed to the courier, who
had not had time to make his escape. The
man wa-s immediately arrested by Longstreet,
who frustrated his designs. Hie was examin
ed and condemned on the spot. Forged or- -
ders to both Jacckson and Hill were found on
his person, those for Longsttreet hiavinig been
delivered, and he acknowledged that he had
been acting as a Confederate scout for eleven
months, and all that time was a traitor and a
spy. He was then condemned and executed
in about fifteen minutes.
As Ihlron-rAr SECRET' ExrEsto.--We
ilet the following significant paragraph from
the Philtadelphiia Ledger: A guard of marines
and 110 sailors have been ordered from Brook
lytn, New York, to thle New lonsides. Tho
" erack" sailors of the navy, to the numnber of
about 50ti, have been within a fe days se
lec'ted from the dilfertent receiving ships in
commuisioen at the homte ports, and sent on a
secret expedition, which is expected to "as-Q
tonish'thte nativ'es" of some port of the rebel
St ates. The Wittans steatmer, it is announced,
will have a band in the alir, which is begini
ning to excite intense culritosity " itnside" tile
service. The Winanis steamer is the iron ci
gar-shaped vessel bought a few years ago at
Baldtinmore, and which probabily conmes tnearer
thte true principles of a ram for war puirposes,
in her shape and construction, than any other
kindl of vessel yet built.
