A runaway wife. --John Johnson, of Washington city, appeared at the police station yesterday, and reported that his wife, Ann Johnson, alias Ann Wheeler, and two daughters, named respectively Delphine Lord and Emma Johnson, left Washington on the 25th of November, in company with one William Lord, taking with them fourteen hundred dollars in United States notes, a feather-bed, bedding, and a large quantity of clothing and furniture, all of which Johnson claims as his property. Mrs. Johnson is described as a woman of thirty-eight years, about five feet four inches in height, with very dark complexion, grey eyes and Roman nose. Lord was formerly a member of the United States Sharp-shooters. Any person having any knowledge of the runaway will confer a favor upon Johnson by leaving information with Major Croft.
General Grant on the Rebels. --Lieutenant-General U. S. Grant, with several members of his staff, passed through this place on last Sunday morning, en route for Washington city. He was returning from a tour through several of the Southern States. At Jonesborough, Doctor Sevier introduced him to a large crowd. Among the crowd was one who had fought pretty hard on t'other side, who, while hobbling up to the General, remarked: "I fought that man pretty hard, but I would like to see him." The General answered: "That does not keep you from being a good citizen; I had as soon see you as anybody." If those in authority in this State would recognize this fact, and act accordingly, we would soon have quite a different state of affairs.--Bristol (Tennessee) News.

It was the most complete representative company of all classes of officials and persons of note that has been drawn together in Washington this season. About eleven o'clock in the evening, Hon. Thomas Corwin, whilst surrounded by a circle of friends whom he was entertaining by his fund of anecdote and wit, was stricken by paralysis, and fell helpless and speechless into the arms of the gentlemen standing nearest to him. Mr. Corwin is dangerously ill.
ral rule, the tone of the press has been such as to materially advance the interests of the bureau.

Morfit, Esq., a native of Norfolk, Virginia, died in Baltimore a few days ago. --He had been a distinguished member of the bar in Missouri, Virginia, Maryland, and in Washington city.
