500 dollars reward. --Ran away from the subscriber about the 1st of February last boy John, about 14 or 15 years old, light copper color, with short, straight hair, had on when he left a new suit of cotton clothes, dyed spun color. John was purchased of Dr Wright, of Alabama. I have no doubt he is with our army.

With reference to the question of the repair of the rebel roads I have recently learned a fact, the truth of which is undoubted, and which accounts for the facility and rapidity with which the enemy has lately been able to make good all the damage we have done on their railroad communications.--Gen Lee has, in conjunction with several English railroad engineers, organized a corps of railroad construction, which has this matter in hand.--Large supplies of new railroad iron have been received from abroad and placed at convenient points, and duplicates of all important bridges are also on hand.

When first arrested and committed to the Castle, he was endeavoring to make his way into General Lee's lines to be returned to his owner. The South was his home, he said, and let what might be done to him be would never desert his colors. He was ordered to be carried back to Castle Thunder, where he will doubtless be punished for all his delinquencies. Martha Henley, a free negroes, charged with stealing one thousand dollars worth of wearing apparel, the property of Miss Sally Richardson, was ordered to receive thirty-nine lashes. Granville Mentelle was again brought up on th
