Capture of Buffaloes. – Among other devices introduced by the Yankees in North Carolina to annoy and harass the loyal citizens on the coast of that State is the organization of bands of native ruffians with Abolition proclivities, who are bound by oath to burn and destroy the property of all loyal citizens that they can lay their hands on – Recently three of these Abolition “buffaloes,” named F. M. Sale, H. C. Palmer, and A. W. Kenton, were captured by our men, and were yesterday brought to Richmond and lodged in the military prison of the Eastern District, for trial before court-martial.
