nces, and tore up the road as far as possible in every direction from the junction, after which he rested for the night. General Wilson, who, with the remainder of his force, had bivouacked at Nottoway Courthouse, on the afternoon of the twenty-fourth advanced across the country to Neberris station, on the Danville railroad, to meet General Kautz, who was to meet him at that place, destroying the road as he advanced. After forming a junction at that station the entire force advanced to Keysville and there bivouacked. The work of destruction was resumed early on the twenty-fifth and by three P. M. we had reached the vicinity of Staunton bridge, on the Staunton river, having completely destroyed every foot of railroad to that point. The distance from Burksville, measured on the map, is about thirty-five miles, and adding to this portions of Southside road which were destroyed the aggregate would not be less than fifty miles and probably more than that distance.

$50 reward. --Runaway from my plantation, in the county of Halifax, near Clover Depot. on the 22d of August, a negro man named William. He is bright complected; about 5 feet 8 or 9 inches high; rather stout; has very large feet and hands; holes in his ears. He was taken up at Keysville about the middle of September, but made his escape — He was heard to say that he was trying to get to Williamsburg, where he was raised. He was sold by Dr. Garrett, of that place, about six years ago. I think it very probable that he is in Williamsburg, or working about Richmond. I will pay $50 reward for his delivery or lodgment in jail where I can get him, if taken up out of the County; if in the county, a liberal reward. James B.

Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.flag-raising in Charlotte county--the war news — great enthusiasm. Keysville, Charlotte Co., Va.,April 15, 1861. We had quite an exciting time here last Saturday, it being muster day, and generally known around this neighborhood that a secession flag would be raised. A crowd gathered here at an early hour, which no doubt would have been three-fold increased but for the heavy showers of rain in the morning. At 12 o'clock the crowd met at the Masonic Hall, where eloquent and soul-inspiring addresses were delivered by John C. Hawlett, Jr., and Isaac R. Watkins, both of the speakers acquitting themselves handsomely. After paying a deserving compliment to our patriotic ladies--God bless them — who made and presented the Southern Confederated Flag, they proved how much more it was to the interest of Virginia to be with the South than remain the tail of a Northern Confederacy.--While speaking was going on the telegraph brought us the s
Dead body found. --An unknown man was found by the people near Keysville, on the Danville Railroad. on Wednesday, the 17th inst. When first seen he was observed lying on the ground, wet and speechless. He was taken to the house of W. W. Coles and efforts were made to restore him to consciousness, without avail. He died that night. There was nothing on his person by which his identity might be established. He had black hair and whiskers, hair inclined to curl, upper front teeth gone, d whiskers, hair inclined to curl, upper front teeth gone, between twenty-five and thirty years of age. Had on a black cassinet over-coat, pair of grey pantaloons, double-breasted grey vest, (blue stripes,) black wool hat with button on top, speckled calico shirt, mixed woolen under-shirt, thick brogans.--Had in his pocket a carpet-sack key. He may have been robbed of the latter article, though his body showed no bruises. C. J. At well, Keysville, Va., may be addressed for further information.
from the ridiculous vanity of imagining ourselves wiser than they, but from an earnest desire of contributing, in any and every way in our power to the success of the noble cause in which we are embarked. It is in this latter spirit, that we would respectfully but earnestly invite the attention of the proper authorities to the importance, in a military point of view, not merely to our own State, but to the Southern Confederacy, of the immediate completion of the line of railroad from Keysville, on the Richmond and Danville Railroad, to Clarksville, at the junction of the Dan and Staunton river. From this latter point there is now railroad connections with the Raleigh and Gaston Road, and by the completion of this, that link would give a connection by rail between Richmond and Branchville, on the road from Charleston to Augusta, entirely independent of that by Petersburg and Weldon. We understand that there remains only about nineteen miles of moderate grading, with very li
