THE TEAZER. - This tiny little craft, mounting two guns, has at length fallen, accidentally, into the hands of the enemy, who will doubtless magnify its littleness, by swearing to the credulous masses of the North that she is a first class frigate. She had run ashore, while reconnoitering about eight or ten miles below Drury's Bluff, and before she could be gotten off was captured by one of the enemy's gunboats, and towed off by the iron-clad Galena, not, however, before our crew had fired a shot into the wheelhouse of the gunboat Mustang, her captor, and escaped safely to the Charles City shore.
