Fulling from Grace. --At a late hour on Friday night, a watchman, making his rounds in the upper part of the city, discovered a man laid out in a state of inebriety under the porch of a dwelling, and having roused him from his slumbers, conducted him to the station house. He was dressed in Federal uniform, and gave his name as Charles VonGelsa. An entry was accordingly made upon the record, of "drunk and asleep under a porch, and from Lincoln. " On his examination before the Mayor on Saturday he produced the following letter, the signature to which we omit: "St. Mary's co., Md., Nov. 10, 1861. "Mr. Charles Von Gelsa, the bearer of this, is a deserter from the Northern Army. He held the office of Second Lieutenant in Sickles' Brigade. He can prove this if necessary. Please try to get him an office." It appeared that Von Gelsa was brought to Richmond as a prisoner of war, but with such undoubted recommendations of his integrity of purpose as to enlist the opini

A man who gave his name as Summer Grazier, and who says he is a Tennessean, was arrested yesterday by some soldiers, while uttering treasonable expressions.--Among other things, he was heard to say that the city of Lynchburg ought to be burned down, and that every man who had taken up arms against Lincoln should be hung. These, with other like expressions, caused his arrest.

He was committed to jail to await further developments in his case. Should the charge against him prove

These gentlemen are natives of North Carolina, and it was suspected by the miserable Lincoln despotism that they were about to return to the States for the purpose of resuming their residence in the South. The Hon. Edward Stanley represented one of the North Carolina Districts in the Federal Congress for many years. A regiment of In tendering this command to the Confederate States, I am only imitating the glorious character of my warrior father, Pushinatahaw, who now sleeps upon the once honored soil of the South, but now lies beneath the iron heel of the despot, Abraham Lincoln. By patriots he was entombed in Washington city--by patriotic legions I hope to regain his ashes. My command shall be ready for active service and ready to march by the 1st of December next. And I further request that orders may be se
t a number of professed Union men, alias Yankees, falsely assuming to represent the people of Kentucky, and styling themselves the Legislature, who were bought by Lincoln with a price, are now in session at Frankfort, obeying the Despot's orders, and doing his dirty work generally. The following is a short synopsis of their proceedings of the 29th and 30th of November: In the House of Representatives bills were introduced exempting soldiers now in Lincoln's service from the payment of the county levy for the year 1862; providing that attachments shall not issue against Lincoln soldiers because of absence from the State four months; and providing thatLincoln soldiers because of absence from the State four months; and providing that no person aiding and assisting the rebellion against King Lincoln shall ever hold any office of trust or profit in this Commonwealth.
