man named Edward Gentry, who is charged with having for some time back been resorting to all sorts of tricks to evade military service, was on Tuesday carried before Capt William Charters, Provost Marshal for the State Reserves, who, upon investigation of the matter, promptly turned him over to Capt Coke as a proper person to join the army. Gentry was at one time sentenced by the Mayor to receive thirty-nine lashes (he being looked upon as a negro) for using insulting language towards Dr. James Conway, but took an appeal from His Honor's decision to the Hustings Court, and that body overruled the decision, there being evidence before them which proved that he was a white man. From that time till the inauguration of the war Gentry has been looked upon as a white man, and would probably have continued so to be considered had he not, to serve his own purposes, otherwise reported himself. It is reliably stated that when called upon recently to enter the Confederate army he represented.
