Ranaway --On the 4th of July, a negro boy named Jackson, about 30 years old, his front teeth above are out, quick spoken, spare build; of jet black complexion, weighs about 13 pounds. He can read and write very well. He were off a checked flannel shirt and black hat; had two watches in his pocket. There is no doubt he will try to change his name, as he left his master in Georgia and was gone three years, and passed as a free boy — A liberal reward will be paid for his apprehension and delivery at this office.

The Army in the northwest. Among the canards lately issued from Wheeling, and published in the Northern newspapers, is the following, under date of July 4th: We have information that on Sunday night, the Third and Fourth Ohio Regiments whipped a portion of Wise's army, near Buckhannon, Upshur county, killing seventeen and taking ninety-one prisoners, besides a large number of horses, with inconsiderable loss on our side. The enemy retreated and were as quickly pursued. Governor Wise has about 10,000 men in his command, and to oppose him General McClelland has 19,000. The absurdity of the foregoing is apparent to any one who knows the situation of affairs. Letters from our forces under Gen. Garnett, dated Monday, July 1st, report all quiet, with an occasional capture of a Federal prisoner. The following is Col. Heck's official dispatch to Gen.

Strict, but at the same time humane, military discipline is the sine qua non of an efficient soldiery. He who has more than a limited knowledge of human nature, and a heart that can feel as well as a brain that can think, can enforce the most rigid rules known to the code of modern warfare, without forfeiting the confidence, while the wins upon the esteem and affection of the soldier under his command. Such a commander on the field of battle can achieve a victory over three times the forces opposed to him, if the commander of those forces is his antipodes in the confidence, esteem and affection of his men. Some men, when prematurely raised to a position which is pleasing to their pride a
soldier rode up and disarmed himself. Possibly he was a deserter. Movements of Patterson's column. Martinsburg, July 4, noon.--The whole army moved up to this place yesterday, and are encamped here, where we are now quality spending the 4th of July. Most ad able order prevails, although some outrages have been committed upon private property. Capt. Nadenbush, commander of a company in Col. Allen's First Virginia Regiment, has had his house completely gutted by stragglers from verve our every movement? The flag of truce brings several fugitives, chiefly women, from Norfolk. Fortress Monroe, July 4.--The Washington correspondent of the New York Times does great injustice to both Gen. Butler and Jas. Gordon, Pennett, iition of the Confederates at Mathias' Point. The Washington Star, of last Friday evening, says: Martinsburg, Va., July 4, 4 P. M.--We have intelligence here that Gen. Johnston seems disposed to make a stand at last. He is now directly in fro
