From the North. We continue our extracts from the latest Northern papers. Gov. Stanley, of North Carolina, had arrived in Washington. All the officers who advised Col. Mason to surrender at Clarkesville, Tenn., have been dismissed from the Federal army for cowardice. Gen. Corcoran is making so many speeches at the North that the papers are commencing to head their reports "still another speech from Corcoran." The "great battle" which was to come is thus spoken of by the New York Herald, after commenting on the news given in Pope's dispatch: But with all this good and certain news we have yet to fight a battle that is to be the decisive one in front of the National Capital, and it will undoubtedly be one of great magnitude and importance. The Government takes this view of the position of things in that neighborhood, and to meet the emergency it is announced that McClellan takes the immediate command of the whole Army of Virginia, with Pope and Burnside at the head of the
Two hundred and fifty Dollars reward --Will be paid for the apprehension and delivery of my man Anderson to Messrs. Lee & James, of Richmond.

Todd is black, rather large size, weighs perhaps one hundred and seventy-five pounds, well made, about forty to forty-five years old, and a little bald; talks well and very plausibly; he is about five feet eight inches high.

He is well acquainted on Dan river as far as Clarkesville, and may be in that neighborhood. Alex is very black, healthy looking, speaks slow, and slow in his movements; height about five feet four inches, well made, and weighs about one hundred and fifty pounds. We bought him in Richmond, some eighteen months ago, from a gentleman from Eastern South Carolina. We will pay the above reward, or $150 for each, if they are delivered to us in Danville, or confined in jail so that we can get them. Thomas C. Williams & Co. Danville, August

This point is on the south bank of the Roanoke, near the junction of the Dan and Stauhnston off, or reach the vicinity of the Danville road as soon as he does, General Sherman has to move from Raleigh to Clarkesville, when he will be twenty-two miles from Hicksford junction, the nearest point of railroad communication with General Grline of the Roanoke river, near the junction of the Dan and Staunton, or further west, on the line of the Dan, between Clarkesville and Boston, on the Danville road. By taking the line of the Dan on which to give battle, Lee would have Sherman on the can be succored by Grant — into consideration, it is reasonable to suppose that either the line of the Roanoke, near Clarkesville, or the line of the Dan, to the westward of it, will be the scene of battle. If General Sherman pushes forward on the
