ged in prison. General Charles F. Henningsen, one of the most gifted military geniuses of the age, and a Southern soldier who has seen service, remains in Richmond without a command, on the eve of one of the most important battles ever fought on this continent. Somebody is in fault, or prejudice has stronger claims than merit of the highest order. Several private houses, saloons, &c., were, it is said, appropriated to the use of the soldiers crowding pell-mell into this city from Ashland on Wednesday last. The papers thereupon suggest the use of the churches.--It is known that many wealthy residents of this city have removed their families to places of supposed safety, and their dwellings remain untenanted save by the few servants left to take care of them.

Wednesday several train loads of sick that had been accumulating at Ashland were brought to this city, and will, no doubt, also be sent to Danville, where it is said accommodations have been provided for 5,000--A battle near Richmond would render a great deal of hospital room necessary at this point.
Stampeding soldiers. --A number of weak-kneed warriors, who, on Wednesday, made their way to this city from Ashland, Hanover county, Va, either on foot or on the sick trains, reporting after they got here most direful stories of Ashland being taken by the Yankees in immense force, &c., with terrific slaughter, were yesterday Ashland being taken by the Yankees in immense force, &c., with terrific slaughter, were yesterday apprehended by dozens, by members of Winder's Detective Police, and lodged in the guard-house on Franklin street, to be sent back, it appearing that the Hessians had not got Ashland, and that the only foundation for the stories told by the fugacious soldiers was imaginations, conjoined with a strong repugnance to putting themselvesing that the Hessians had not got Ashland, and that the only foundation for the stories told by the fugacious soldiers was imaginations, conjoined with a strong repugnance to putting themselves in the way of danger supposed or real. All of the soldiers who came down yesterday who were really sick have been sent to the hospitals.
