Five Dollars Reward. --Ranaway from the subscriber, on 4th inst., Eliza, a slave, property of R. W. Thomasson, Esq., who is about 35 years old, of medium size dark brown skin, has a burn or scar on one of her cheeks, and lisps when speaking. Eliza may probably be found at the house of her sister, Fannie White, on 7th, north of Broad street, in this city. The above reward will be promptly paid for her delivery to B. A.

ommunity. In addition to the Home Guards, another company of young men is about formed. Then there is a company of boys, from perhaps' fifteen to eighteen years old; another of boys from about ten to fifteen; and last, though not least, a few days ago there was a company formed of middle-aged and rather elderly men, Mr. Peacock being Captain; John F. Johnston, Colonel; Jno. B. Walker and others being officers, and among the privates, Col. Rocas, Rev. Messrs. Foot and Crumley. I saw even Dr. Jones and Maj. Reese in the ranks. They are a fine looking company of men, nearly all of more than ordinary size, and, as I assure you, appear determined to carry out what they undertake. Business is quite dull here, as elsewhere.--Men are leaving their occupations and their families to enlist in the service of our country willing to peril their health, and even their lives in defence of our rights. I do not believe such a people can ever be conquered, even by greatly superior numbers of

they act when success crowns their movements. The Virginia forces march to Harper's Ferry. The Federal troops hear of their approach and evacuate the post with all speed. Of course this was the best thing the vaunting soldiers could do, and Capt. Jones was highly commended by prudence. Some were of opinion that they should not have believed the first reports that reached them touching the strength of the coming army. And many whose courage is of a rash, high kind, condemned the Captain forloss on the enemy. But the excited commandant already heard the tramp of the terrible legion at the gates, and giving the order to march, which was readily obeyed, the light-footed sons of war went at a trot toward Pennsylvania. Whether Captain Jones should have waited till the Virginians got a little nearer, and should have tried to ascertain the precise number of the force, is a question that concerns him and his Government. We only know that he left in a hurry, and that he and his com

The Regiment, all told, numbers about 1,300 men.--They are officered in a way to leave no room to doubt that they will not put in their best licks against the common enemy. We append a list of staff and company officers: Colonel, Solomon Williams, late of the U. S. Dragoons in New Mexico; Lieut. Colonel, Edward Cantwell, of Raleigh, served in Mexico; Major, Hon. Aug. W. Burton, Senator from Cleveland county; Adjutant, C. A. Durham, of the North Carolina Military Academy; Quartermaster, W. T. Alston; Commissary, W. T. Arrington; Surgeons, Drs. Johnston and Miller; A Company, Capt. Wade; B Company, Capt. Wortham; C Company, Capt. Ray; D Company, Capt. Norment; E Company, Capt. Jones; F Company, Capt. Williams; G Company, Capt. Kenan; H Company, Capt. Fulton; I Company, Capt. Whitaker; K Company, Capt. Coleman.
000 pounds of lead en route for the South were also seized yesterday at Ironton, on the Iron Mountain Railroad, by order of General Lyon. Some resistance was offered by a party of citizens, and several shots were fired on both sides, but nobody was hurt. John Dean and his fellow prisoners were released from the arsenal on parole yesterday. The habeas corpus case of Capt. McDonald was resumed to-day before Judge Treat, United States District Court. The case was ably argued by District Attorney Jones for the respondent, and Davis and Whittlesey for petitioners. The ground that the United States Attorney took was, that the petition set forth that the petitioner had been arrested by military authority without legal process. He cited precedents that the court had no jurisdiction in the matter, as the military authority in time of war or of rebellion had the power, and might arrest persons in array against the Federal Government for treason or alleged treason.
