ughly understood by every successful leader. The art of "attack" and "defence"--when to do the one or the other, and how to do so with the least possible loss and with the most destructive effect to the enemy — is a "gift" which but few men naturally possess; indeed, so few that they are not met with more than "once in a lifetime." Nor will this necessary preparation, of itself, accomplish much for a commander, unless accompanied by prominent traits of character — such as good old-fashioned "mother wit," bravery, and prudence. These, I believe, are all possessed by our friend in quantum sufficit--or, to speak in plain English, "enough to do,"--and I should have no hesitation in placing myself under his leadership in the day of battle. I have known Col. Presion from boyhood, and have ever found him kind-hearted, high-minded and honorable — none more so — and pronounce him to be one of the best field officers in South western Virginia. Yours, Scott.

Runaway. -- Reward.--Ranaway, on the 3th of August, my Negro Woman named Betty, about 8 years old, five feet four inches high, black, who was to Joseph Davis, on Broad street. She has a mark on the face, in consequence of a mu plaster she had on, which place is darker. She has children in Cumberland county, where I bought her of Mr. J. M. Price.--Her mother lives with Mr. S. Ste , in Augusta county. No doubt she may try to get to one of these places; or she may be in this city. I will give the above reward it delivered to me here, or if ledged in jail in the county or city. se 9--6t* Joseph Stern.
