Colby, Thomas Gillespie, seaman, and Joseph Williams, ship painter, all armed with Sharp's rifles, and revolvers, and carrying two-days' rations. They went up the Cape at every step, and men traveled over the pine-barren only with difficulty. But obstacles were not to be thought of. General Williams, with the Twentieth Corps, took the lead. Ward's division was deployed in the advance, and very soon his skirmisherd an open field over which the Nationals must advance. To avoid the perils of a direct attack under such circumstances, Williams sent Case's brigade to turn the left of the Confederate line. This was promptly done, and, by a quick charge upon theire Goldsboroa road, at the point where it was crossed by one from Clinton to Smithfield. Two divisions of the Twentieth (Williams's) Corps were camped ten or twelve miles in their rear, on the same road, near the Mingo Creek, in charge of Slocum's wa

B. Colby, Thomas Gillespie, seaman. and Joseph Williams, ship's painter, armed with Sharpe's rifles and revolvers, and taking two days rations. After proceeding up the river about twelve miles I met the enemy's advance picket-post, which I succeeded in passing without discovery; but at a point na route. In parts of Robeson County I found a very large number of deserters from the rebel army, and quite a strong Union feeling. I cannot speak too highly of the conduct of Acting-Ensign Colby, also of the two men, Thomas Gillespie and Jos. Williams, who were ever ready to encounter any danger or hardship that came in their way. General Sherman wishing me to communicate with you as soon as possible, I leave to-night by the army tug, hoping to meet you on my way to Wilmington. In co

Deceased. --Joseph Williams, Esq., an old and well known citizen of Petersburg, Va., died last Sunday evening. He was a native of Baltimore.
Assassination --On Thursday night, near Powhatan Station, on the Richmond and Danville Railroad, while Mr. Joseph Williams, a respectable farmer, was sitting at his supper, a shot was fired through the window at him, the ball penetrating his back and causing his instant death. The ball passed entirely through his body and broke some of the crockery on the table. His burn was burnt two or three weeks ago, and it is supposed that the same person who committed that act followed the crime by the murder of the owner.
The first Virginia regiment. --Among the losses in the First Virginia Regiment, of Richmond, at Gettysburg, were Colonel Williams, killed, and Lieut. Reeve, wounded. The regiment is now under the command of a Lieutenant, every ranking officer having been killed or wounded.
