Wanted. --one hundred Negro men. We wish to hire for the balance of the year , one hundred able-bodied Negro men, to work at the Salt Works, in Smythe and Washington counties, Va., We want them chiefly for wood-choppers and teamsters, and we will pay twelve dollars per month furnish board and clothing, and pay travelling expenses to and from this place; also the expenses of any master or agent who will bring six or more hands. This section is perfectly quiet, but owners can remove their slaves from here whenever they deem them in danger from the enemy. We refer to McDaniel & Irby, Lynchburg, and Spotts & Harvey, Richmond, who will pay our hires monthly or quarterly. We hope hands will be sent us at once without waiting for us to hunt them up. Boys and indifferent hands not wanted. Stuart, Buchanan & Co. Saltville April 24, 1862. ap 29--2w*

a State force of ten thousand men, to be commanded by Major-General John B. Floyd, to be employed chiefly in the defence of Western Virginia. In consequence of the large force which had previously volunteered for service, and of the additional number called for by the Conscription Act, the amount asked for was not raised with the rapidity desired. I, therefore, on the 4th inst., issued orders calling for the militia between the ages of 35 and 45 years, from the counties of Washington, Smythe, Grayson.

was commanding such exorbitant prices as placed the article beyond the means of a large class of the people, and especially the private soldiers of our army who had left families at home, I determined to visit the salt work in Washington and Smyth counties in form myself as far as it was possible to do so by observation and inquiry, and then adopt such course as the law authorized and the necessities of the people demanded for their relief. If the wants and demanded of our people cannot be ful of the State. This explains why the legislation on this important subject was confined to the Eastern counties. The States of Georgia. North Carolina, and Tennessee have commenced the manufacture of salt at the worked in Washington and Smyth counties. The State of Alabama is making the necessary preparations to commence the manufacture, and in the course of a month will be making about 500 bushels per day. Each of the other States is making about this quantity daily, and in the course of

Mr. Thompson, of Dinwiddie, a member of the joint committee appointed to consider the subject of salt, made a statement of facts presented for the consideration of the committee, and which induced them to report the bill under consideration. He said, at the late session of the Legislature a committee was appointed to wait upon the authorities of the Confederate Government, and, if possible, procure a release of a contract made by them with the losses of the salt works in Smyth county. The release was not obtained, and a committee was appointed to contract with the same parties for a supply of salt to the citizens of Virginia — The committee to appointed contracted with the lessees to furnish a stated quantity of salt. The Senate passed a bill to carry the contract into effect. The House rejected it, and, near the close of its session, passed a resolution to release the lessees from their contract concluded with the committee, which was concurred in by the Senate.

Referred to said committee. A further communication was received from His Excellency, enclosing a letter from Dr. J. J. Motormen, State Agent for the distribution of salt, in which he assumes that by the first day of April there will be in successful operation at the works in Washington and Smythe counties not less than twenty-three hundred salt kettles, which will be capable of turning out, on an average, five bushels per day each for three hundred days in the year, which will give an aggregate of upwards of 30,000 bushels per-annum, and, after deducting the amount of salt already contracted for by certain States of the Confederacy, will still leave over 2,000,000 bushels, for the wants of Virginia and the Confederate Government, which will be amply sufficient for all needful supplies, i
