Reported death of a citizen

--Messrs. Blair & Chamberlain, of this city, received a telegraphic dispatch yesterday from Lieut. Richard B. Kennon, stating that Mr. Henry Haines, (son of Garland Haines, Esq., of Henrico county,) a member of the Governor's Guard, had been killed Sunday night, by the enemy, while out scouting near Fairfax Court-House. In reply to a message whether a burial case should be sent for his remains, a reply was received that it was not then necessary, as his body had not been recovered. This suggests the possibility that the unfortunate casualty mentioned did not take place. This wears an air of probability, because at the time the intelligence of the death of Mr. H. was received it was also rumored that his two companions had been captured by the enemy. He may also have been captured.
