Wanted--1,000 negroes. --We wish to hire for the year 1864, one thousand Negroes, to be employed at the Tredegar Iron Works, Richmond, and at our Blast Furnaces in the counties of Rockbridge, Botetourt, and Alleghany, and Collieries in Goochland and Henrico, for which we are willing to pay the market prices. Having made arrangements for a supply of provisions and clothing, we can safely promise that servants entrusted to us shall at all times be well fed and clothed. Our furnaces and other works are located in healthy sections of the country, remote from the enemy's line, offering unusual inducements to the owners of negroes to send them to us. We would be glad to hear from those whose hands we have hired this year as early as possible, as to rehiring them another year, and whether they desire that the hands shall be sent home or retained under our protection at the end of the year. J R Anderson & Co, Tredegar Iron Works, Richmond, Va. oc 26--3taw1m

The previous question being called and sustained, the main question was ordered, which was on agreeing to the report of the committee of conference, and the vote being taken by ayes and noes, resulted — ayes 51, noes 49. The Chair decided that a constitutional majority was necessary to the adoption of the report, and therefore declared that it was rejected.
