m his master, was sent down under sentence of 39 lashes. Archer, slave of Turpin & Yarborough, arrested for going out at night without a pass, was discharged from custody. Margaret Nicholas, a free woman of color, charged with living in Richmond with no other register of her freedom than that furnished her by the county court of Fluvanna, was dismissed, with an order to leave the city by Tuesday next. Wm. Ruffin, a barber's boy, and Charles, employed by Dr. Cabell, charged with fighting near Lomax Smith's tonsorial establishment, were punished with 25 lashes each. It appeared that during the melee, William drew a razor and gave his antagonist a pretty severe cut on the sin. Albert Rish, slave of Stephen Mason, was ordered 20 lashes for stealing coal from Wm. H. Davis. The prisoner's counsel took an appeal to the Hustings court. Mrs. Yarrington was fined $2 for permitting a nuisance in the shape of a heap of rubbish to accumulate and remain on her premises.
ce of vandalism, it is difficult to imagine. Fires are seen in every direction, and it is believed that the Yankees are making a clean sweep in their course. Yesterday two videttes were captured by Stuart's cavalry and brought into camp. They had lost their way and run into our lines. A few changes have taken place within a day or two. Gen. Johnston has moved his headquarters into the village, and now occupies a cottage at the extreme end of the street leading towards Centreville. Gen. Smith is also here. Gen. Longstreet has returned from Coyle's Tavern, near Annandale, and has given the command of the outposts to Brigadier-General J. E. B. Stuart. Three days out of the five that have passed this week we have had no mail, and have been deprived of the Richmond papers.--When it is known that every copy of the Dispatch that is brought into Fairfax is sold in five minutes at a dime each, the anxiety to get them seems to be considerable. To loose three in one week is a litt
tell the story of a Kentucky lady. It was related to me by one in whom implicit confidence can be placed. Some few weeks ago the hirelings of Lincoln went to Cynthiana, Ky., in search of "arms" and "Secessionists." A gentleman, whom I will call Smith, was a strong Southern man, and feeling that he would be among the first to be arrested, hastened away at dead of night. He was a man of wealth and influence, but such was the precipitancy with which he left his house and his all that he could ct plan was? She ordered a horse to be saddled, took a servant behind her, went to Cynthiana, six miles distant, procured money for her friend, bought cloth, returned home, had the cloth cut and made into garments by the next morning, and started Smith off bright and early! Can any Virginia lady surpass this devotion to the Southern cause? Such an act deserves to be held in everlasting remembrance; and the historian who fails to chronicle the heroic and daring deed of this Kentucky woman will
Mayor's Court. --A man whose name we understand to be Wilkins, was arrested on Monday evening for shooting a pistol at Lomax Smith's barber shop while under the control of fiery spirits. He had a large number of religious tracts, entitled "The Last Enemy," in his pocket, which he could not have read to much purpose, or he would have kept an enemy from getting in his mouth to steal away his brains. The Mayor yesterday required him to give security to keep the peace. Edward W. Kelly, the man charged with drawing a pistol upon B. Catogni and demanding his money, was to have been examined yesterday, but the Mayor further continued the case to give him a chance to procure witnesses. Maria S. Turpin charges James H. and Caroline Phillips and Ann Overty, white persons, and Patsy and China, slaves, with assaulting and beating her; but with a view to ascertaining all the facts of such a remarkable case, the Mayor postponed the investigation until to-day. A fine of $5 was

The Justices of the Peack — who of them shall be Exempt from military duty. Governor Smith has determined upon his course with reference to the exemption of Justices of the Peace. The following is an extract from a paper with his signature on the subject. It is clear and positive. The age of the Justice settles the question of his status whether at home or in the field.--Every Justice, whether under or over forty-five must appreciate the irony of the Governor touching the probable abundant supply of men over forty-five competent to perform the "meagre duties" left the magistracy by the war! Even the Justice who falls likes the instrument to be sharp, whether it be a "wise saw" or a "modern instance." If Justices be, as they were in the revolution of '76, of a chivalrous and patriotic spirit, those fit for service will hardly stop to cavil about the principle involved in the decision of the Governor; but proceed at once to defend their country from that foe who will, if succes

From the Southwest. Dalton April 5. --News from within the enemy's lines states that two brigades of infantry have gone towards Nashville. By some they are said to have been sent to operate against Forrest, and by others to be en route for the Army of the Potomac. Forty-four regiments of infantry and ten batteries, who returned to Ohio to recruit, raised only five thousand in three months. It is reported that McPherson relieves Thomas, who will be sent to another field; also, that one brigade of cavalry and one of infantry have been sent forward to Chattanooga within the last few days. The Federals who went out on a plundering expedition under Dodge have returned to Decalur. Smith, commanding the other division of Logan's corps, is at Larkinsville picketing Huntsville, and Stevenson on the railroad and river. Nineteen Federals in Confederate uniform came to Triune Factory, near Summerville, and committed numerous depredations on Saturday.
