Ion of gas. --Yesterday afternoon Messrs. Chiles and Melton went to the basement of Mr. Woodhouse's bookstore for the purpose of repairing the gas pipe, which was reported to be leaking, Passing a light along the calling they found a wire attached to the pipe attaching across and fastened on the opposite side of the apartment. The door, in opening swung against this wire, and by this means the pipe had become loosened allowing an escape of the gas. They had scarcely made this discovery, when a lend explosion took place between the calling and the floor above, shattering the plastering in the store, and burning them slightly, but the gas was immediately turned off and further damage prevented.

Twenty-five dollars reward. --Ranaway on the 6th day of July, inst., my blacksmith, James Patterson. He is about five feet eight inches high, with a large month, very thick lips, very broad, flat nose, and uses the hammer when at work with his left hand. I purchased him at Louisa Court-House in February, 1861, before which time he had been hired by Mr. James H. Harding, near the Fairfield Race-Course, and at one time by Messrs. Clark & Hatcher, of Richmond. He has a wife at Mr. John Thomas's Henrico county, near the tavern of Wm, Chiles, Esq., on the Chickahominy river, about whose premises he may be lurking, or he may have gone to Richmond, where he will attempt to obtain employment. I will give the above reward for his delivery to me or Mr. Francis T. Isbell, Richmond. M. A. Hope. jy 12--6td&w Jackson P. O. Louisa co., Va.
