UNITED STATES PICKETS CHASING AND SHOOTING REBEL PROWLERS NEAR ALEXANDRIA.[SKETCHED BY OUR SPECIAL ARTIST.]

SHOOTING REBEL PROWLERS.

WE publish above a picture of SHOOTING REBEL PROWLERS near Alexandria. Our special artist writes:

On Monday night, May 27, a picket guard of United States cavalry were stationed some two or three miles from Alexandria on a country road. They were fired upon, and seeing some one moving behind the fence, one of the guards fired his carbine and killed one of the rebels. A few minutes

afterward they were again fired upon, the party firing taking to his heels immediately afterward. Two of the pickets pursued and shot him, while the third remained on guard by the body of the man previously shot. On examination passes were found on both, which they had obtained

the day before on some plausible pretext from Captain Whittlesey, Provost-Marshal at Alexandria. and had used for the purpose of getting outside the town with intent to murder some of our soldiers, and commit other dastardly acts.
