A spy hung.--Captain William Jones, of the sloop Isabel, has terminated his brief but notorious career at the end of a rope. The account we hear is, that on the arrival of the cars at Scooba, a passenger on the train pointed out Jones, as boasting to him of being the person who “provisioned Slemmer,” and that he was then on the way to Washington, with despatches to Lincoln's Government. He was arrested, the proofs of his treason found upon him, and he was executed upon the spot by the enraged citizens.--Mobile Advertiser.
