A BATTLE NEAR SUFFOLK The papers of Monday last brought us news of a fight on the Blackwater river, near Suffolk, Virginia, on the nig ht of the 29th ult. The Rebel General Pryor advanced his forces acres the Blackwater on the 28th. The next evening, General Corcoran moved forward to meet him, .encountering Pryor ten miles from Suffolk. A heavy-musket and artillery fire was opened upon the Rebels, lasting for several hours, when they retreated in confusion. Pryor was seeking a battle and he found one. Among the regiments engaged were the Eleventh Pennsylvania Cavalry, under Colonel Spear, and the One hundred and sixty-seventn rennsyivania Infantry, (Berks Couuty Drafted Militia).

MR. WRIGHT SPEAKS ABAIfl The radical papers were loud in commendation of the Hon. II. B. Wright's late war speech, in answer to Mr. Vallandigham. They called upon the whole country to listen to and heed his words. Mv. Wright has spoken again, and this lime upon the proposition to raise a negro army of 150,000 men. Here is a sketch of the debate: Mr. Wright, (D ) of Pennsylvania, said this Government and the Union were the result of compromises. In concession and compromise it had its birth. The very ' day the declaration went forth to tbe colonies from Independence Hall, there was eompruaiise aud concession From (.bat period dowu to 1850 such a _policy "a-JjrB»anctl Ttie Uutuu whs a._uiu oav, .j d _^ . ii«_- compromise of the great aud ruling _jjiirns _ut Uiu laud—Ciay, _Websier, CulLuun, and others, _mfcling together lor ihat purpose.

MR. BOILEAU RELEASED Mr. Albert D. Boileau, whose arbitrary arrest was the occasion of no little excitement a week ago, has-been released from Fort McIIenry, by order of General Schenek, Commander of the "Middle Department Eighth Army Corps," who, by some process unknown to the American Constitution and Laws, appears to have obtained an authority over the Commonwealth of Pennsylva nia superior to her Governor and Civil Magistrates. The condition of his release waa a public confession of guilt in the matter of publishing "articles of a dangerous character, tending to the support and encouragement of the rebellion," and a pledge not to offend in a similar manner in future. In other words, like a schoolboy delected in some act for which punishment threatens him, he says: I have been very naughty, but if you will only let me off this time, I'll never _4o so azaiu( " Now, whatever may have been the impropriety, or wrong, of publishing, in a Philadelphia journal, a laudatory revie...

Habpe&'s Magazine.—The February number of this papular Monthly, is of a more miscellaneous character than any issued for some time. It contains tbiriy-seven illustrations, chiefly by Chapin, Perkins, Stephens, Jewett, Voight, Hoppin_, Bellew, and McLenan. Ihe leading article is Mr. Ross Brown's second and interesting record of bis tour as " A Californian in Iceland. " A new American Story, called " Doctor Hawley," is commenced in -this number; and "Roanola" and other serials, sre continued. One of the matter-of fact papers, " The Gunboat Essex," relates the gallant cruise of Captain W. D. Porter, a Pennsylvanian by eduoalion, and domicile, up the Mississippi, chiefly against _Vicksburg and Natchez, during last July and August. There are several readable stories, and an article on " Gentlemen of the Press," gives a fair idea of at what trouble and cost a daily newspaper is produced. Tbe high price of paper has had no effect iu diminishing Harper, either in quality or quan...

_Rsst fob the Reserves.—At length our brave soldiers who form the remnant of the Pennsylvania Reserves, are to have rest. An order has been issued to withdraw the Reserve Corps from the field, and place them on duiy in the fortifications aronnd Washington. However late this order comes, we rejoice that it has been issued. Had a similar order been made six months ago—had (he Reserves been allowed time to rest and recruit _evsn three months ago, and officers been detailed to visit Pennsylvania on _recruiting service, every company could have been filled vrilh fresh levies, and the Corps thus restored to its maximum strength. The State yearned ' to'acreage the glory of that gallant band, by renewing its strength and again reviving its undaunted valor in adequate numbers to meet the foe. Propositions in every 6hape were made to secure this object and result, but each in turn was rejected as impracticable, until delay and death dimin ished the confidence and enthusiasm and tbiiraed the...

Heavy Store _Robbbet.—The dry goods store of Messrs. Eyre & Laudell, at Fourth and Arch streets, Philadelphia, whose advertisements have frequently appeared in the Gazette, was feloniously entered on Wednesday night, and robbed of for.y pieces of silk, worth from four to tiv< _thousand dollars. The rogues took _advantage n> the _siorm, supposing that the police on such « ni*ht would not expose themselves too ruuct An entrance was effected by removing the grating in the pavement, and by boring a hole in an iron cased door sufficiently large to admit 0? che bolts being pushed back. It is supposed that the robbers had a wagon to carry away theplun der. The removal of the goods from the store must have occupied from ten. to fifteen, minutes, yet the thieves seemed to have escaped observation, though that corner is the meeting of three policemen on different beats. The apparent want of attention to their duties of those policemen led the Mayor to order their suspe...
