Runaway in the army. --My man George ran away the 1st day of February, and probably joined our army, as it passed Gordonsville from Manassas to Richmond. He was seen with an artillery company, having pack mules with it, passing from Fairfield into Richmond in May, and is doubtless passing as a free man, and may have changed to other kind of army service, or may be in the city, and most likely as cook or waiter. He is 23 to 25 years old, black, neat, round features, weighs about 160 pounds, 5 feet 8 to 10 inches high, likely, and has a hoarse, confused manner of speech, and has probably changed his name. I will give $100 for his delivery in jail, so that I get him again. S W. Ficklin. jy 30--6t Charlottesville, Va.

From General Bragg's Army. [from our own Correspondent.] Army of Tennessee, Missionary Ridge, Nov. 21st. The Federal General Sherman does not suffer the grass to grow under his feet.

Thomas. Had he continued to move along the Memphis and Charleston railroad, and to repair the track as he came, it is not probable that he would have arrived here before early spring. It is not believed that his forces have yet come to Chattanooga, but have stopped at Stevenson and Bridgeport, from which points they conveniently threaten our left flank.--If they have crossed the Tennessee at all, they are still in the neighborhood of Bridgeport, or somewhere on the railroad between that point and Brown's Ferry.
