child, Clara, whom I bought on the 6th. Lucinda is of medium size; of a copper color, and about 18 years of age. Clara is of a bright mulatto color, white hair, and blue eyes. The said negroes were hired to the overseer for Dr. Bickers, of Culpeper county, and Dr. Bickers himself hires the husband to the negro woman, who was raised by Miss Butler G. Hume, near Raccon Ford, Culpeper county. I will give $50 reward if the said negroes are taken, and secured to me, in Orange county, or $100 if tnd about 18 years of age.

ling, in Richmond, Sunday evening, Oct. 12th, my negro man, Geo.

enough to take into his custody twenty-five dollars belonging to Maroni. The Court committed the accused for trial before Judge Lyons. Habeas Corpus--William Weeks, a prisoner for the last month in Castle Thunder, yesterday sued out a writ of habeas corpus, and appeared before Judge Lyons for a hearing as to the cause of his arrest and detention. The case was not gone into on its merits, being postponed until Friday next. Weeks was arrested just after the battle of Cedar Run, in Culpeper county, by order of an army officer, and sent to Richmond, on the charge of piloting the enemy in that county. Whether there be proof here to sustain this charge, remains to be seen. Supreme Court of Appeals.--The Judges of this Court have reversed the decision of the jury in Judge Lyons's Court, condemning James Slater to ten years imprisonment in the Penitentiary for the murder of William Clarke, in Adams's Valley, several months since. The prisoner was found guilty of manslaughter a

ives by stepping into the canal at the foot of 8th street, where the bridge leading to the Petersburg Depot crosses it, the water was drawn from the basin at an early hour yesterday morning, soon after which a search revealed, near the spot alluded to, the body of Mr. Joseph Ladd, a respectable and well known resident of Sussex county, Va., whose remains, after being viewed by the Coroner, were enclosed in a neat coffin and delivered to his friends. It appears that Mr. Ladd had been to Culpeper county to carry some supplies to soldiers hauling from his vicinity, and returning to this city on Thursday last, had started early Friday morning for the Petersburg Depot, and not knowing the way between his hotel and the depot very well, had stopped into the canal at the foot of the bridge, on 8th street, and, being unable to swim, sunk before assistance could reach him. About 1 o'clock yesterday the body of another man was recovered from near the same spot. One examination it was found to

The Daily Dispatch: March 18, 1863., [Electronic resource], Exported crossing of the Rappahannock by the enemy. (search)
Exported crossing of the Rappahannock by the enemy. There was a report in circulation yesterday to the effect that the enemy, in considerable force of cavalry and artillery, have crossed the Upper Rappahannock at Kelley's Ford, in Culpeper county. The presumption is that they contemplate an advance upon Cordonsville. Kelley's Ford is some dutiness from Fredericksburg and much farther from Richmond than the latter point, so that this movement cannot be regarded as an advance of the grand army. It may be, however, that Hooker has concluded to try another route for his "on to Richmond" move, and to avoid the Confederate batteries at Fredericksburg, has moved his forces to the Upper Rappahannock in the hope of fewer obstacles in the passage of that stream. Passengers by the Central train last evening state that the same report was current at Cordonsville yesterday. Another rumor reached the city last night that Gen. Stuart had encountered the enemy in Fauquier county on Mon
