Twenty-five dollars reward. --Runaway from my place, in Chesterfield county, Va., my Negro Man Ben Johnson, of black color, about 5 feet 10 inches high, weighs about 175 lbs., apparently 45 or 50 years old, and is a good cook, and is probably hiring himself to cook in Richmond or Petersburg. The above reward will be paid for his safe delivery to me at Pulliam & Co.'s office, or safe lodgment in some jail. He came from Petersburg. Left home 1st March last. Albert C. Pulliam. ap 17--If
illed Gen. Lyon and have about five hundred prisoners. Gen. Siegel is in the woods, we have taken all his cannon and cut off his command; we took about 150 of his men prisoners; the cavalry, Carroll's and the Texan regiment, are now after him. Ben Johnson had his horse killed under him, within about two feet of me. My horse was slightly wounded, but not enough to hurt — he stood the battle finely. I was by the side of Gen. McCulloch when a battery opened on us with grape, killed Johnson's horsJohnson's horse and made the leaves fly around us; I did not feel frightened in the least. In riding about over the field, I had the grape and cannon balls to drop around me in all directions. Capt. Ried's battery did nobly; it disabled a battery of the enemy, but unfortunately it hit Capt. Hinson, of the Louisiana regiment, and killed him. This was the only unfortunate occurrence of the day. The attack by Capt. Woodruff upon Totten's battery is briefly but emphatically described: Woodruff tackl
The prisoners at Fort Lafayette. A correspondent of the Philadelphia Inquirer, who visited Fort Lafayette on Saturday, says: The gentlemen Secessionists confined within the walls of the fort, are not confined in cells, are not deprived of the comforts of life, are not, in any respect, the objects of persecution. I found the complacent Mr. Serrill, the fiscal agent of Jeff. Davis, as happy as a king, playing chess with another distinguished personage. Pierce Butler was reading Dr. Johnson's Vanity of Human Wishes, and one of the Baltimore Police Commissioners, Archer's Commentaries on the Book of Job. The rest were variously employed, and all seemed to be about as happy as could be expected under the circumstances. There is no restriction upon the conversation or correspondence, except that the latter must be submitted to Colonel Burke, commanding the fort, to see that it contains nothing designed to give aid and comfort to the enemy. Letters of a domestic nature are me
A correspondent, writing from London to the Mobile Advertiser and Register, says the "Japan," now the "Virginia," has got safely to sea. A San Francisco dispatch announces that the election in Washington Territory has gone largely Democratic. Ben Johnson, a good Union citizen of Vicksburg, has been appointed postmaster at that place by the Yankees.

oat went to Fort Pike in the afternoon, and he heard heavy firing in that direction. The Confederate partisans had burned two schooners transporting cattle to Bayon LaCombe, near Manchaca. The pickets on the road reported that Taylor had whipped Franklin, on the 11th, at the mouth of Red river, driving him back to his gunboats, and on the 12th shelled Baton Rouge. Letters from Johnson's Island state that our prisoners were on less than half rations. Col. Miles, Capt. Hewitt, and Col. Ben Johnson, of the 15th Alabama, were in irons for trying to escape. The True Della's extra, giving an account of the meeting, was suppressed. [Second Dispatch.] Mobile, Dec. 22. --The Advertiser has a special dated Oxford, Miss., December 21. The Chicago Times, of the 14th, contains a Cairo dispatch of the 12th, stating that accounts from Arkansas represent Price to be crossing Red river, with five thousand men, into Texas. Marmaduke was endeavoring to join him, and the Federals wer

Mr. Orr addressed the Senate in opposition to the bill, and offered a substitute therefore. Mr. Johnson, of Ga., moved to postpone the consideration of the bill until Wednesday. Several amendments were offered. Mr. Johnson, of Ga., moved to print the bill and amendments. Agreed to.

Pending the discussion of the question to postpone the consideration of the bill, the Senate resolved into secret executive session. The doors being reopened, Messrs. Mitchell of Ark., and Burnett of Ky., were severally granted leaves of absence. The Senate then adjourned. The House was called to order at 12 o'clock. Mr. Dargan, of Ala, presented a bill entitled an act to receive into the service of the Confederate States that portion of the population of the States of Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Florida, known a
gs, and lasts, and captured the hides from the Yankees which he has thus far used in the manufacture of shoes. I am told that every brigade in the army might organize a shop for repairing shoes at an outlay of $500, and the capacity of half a wagon for transportation when the army is in motion. Ought not every brigade to have one of these shoe shops for repairs? In my last, in mentioning the members of Gen. Lee's Staff, I omitted the names of Lt. Colonel Smith, Chief of Engineers) Capt. Johnson, Ass't of Engineers; and Capt. H. B. Young, Judge Advocate General. There is now no doubt of the escape of Averill but it ought to be borne in mind that be made no raid on this Department, but on that of Gen. Sam Jones. Fitz Lee, I am persuaded, would have begged him but for advices received, via Bonsack's, urging him to take another route from the one he was pursuing. The result was, Averill got clear. A heavy rain has been falling since Saturday night. The Magidan is very hi
New Orleans to New York. Here he took passage for New Orleans, but here our narrative of his adventures must conclude, his trip down the river and his sojourn of a month in New Orleans being forbidden topics. We would add to what we have written down from recollection of our conversation with Capt. Girard that he has recent intelligence from Johnson's Island, where our officers are now living on something less than half rations, and Col. Miles, Capt. Bewitt, of Miles's Legion, and Col. Ben Johnson, of the 15th Arkansas, are in irons for an attempt to escape. The New Orleans Times, of the 12th, under the heading of "The Affair at Fort Jackson--Unfounded Reports — The Matter of No Serious Consequence"--gives the following remarkably brief account of the affair: Some excitement occurred at Fort Jackson on the evening of the 9th inst., in the course of an altercation between one of the officers and some of the men. Fortunately the disturbance was seen quested, and o
