Deceased. --The body of Dr. Thomas F. J. Williams, a member of the R. L. I. Blues, who died of typhoid fever, at the White Sulphur Springs, was expected by the Central train last evening.
from Pound Gap. We have intelligence of a late date, from which it appears that the news published yesterday of the enemy's having passed through Pound Gap, on the Kentucky line, was premature. Captain Clay, who is now in this city, left Col. Williams's camp on Friday afternoon last, at 4 o'clock, at which time the command occupied a position four miles this side, for the reason that there was no camping ground immediately in the Gap. It was the intention of Col. Williams to return, aftermand occupied a position four miles this side, for the reason that there was no camping ground immediately in the Gap. It was the intention of Col. Williams to return, after se his supplies, and defend the Gap so long as he might do it successfully, though the lack of artillery is a serious disadvantage in the face of a vastly superior force. In any event, his sharp-shooters will continue to harass the Federals, and the experience of Piketon shows that they can pich them off by the hundred.

From the Northwest. Our advices from Camp Bartow are as late as Friday last, the 15th inst. Nothing of special importance has lately occurred there, except that on the 13th a party of Yankees made their appearance on the opposite side of Green brier river, and Lieut. Hurt and private Williams, of the Pittsylvania cavalry, went forward to ascertain their number; but proceeding incautiously, they were both captured. A letter before us gives an account of the successful stratagem of a young woman, through which a Yankee soldier, who had strayed from his camp, was taken prisoner and delivered to Col. Taliaferro.
ling to perform his duties, however arduous, without a murmur. Though his noble spirit took its flight when yet away from home and kindred, yet it is a consolation to us to know that he died amongst friends, where all that the hands of kindness could offer was freely rendered to alleviate his sufferings; and as a small token of our feeling of this sad occurrence, we unanimously concur in the following resolutions, viz: Resolved, That in the death of our beloved fellow soldier, Dr. Thos. F. J. Williams, we have lost a firm friend and companion and our country a brave defender. Resolved, That we hereby tender our heartfelt sympathies to his deeply bereaved family, and mingle our grief with them in the loss we all sustain. Resolved, That the foregoing preamble and resolutions be entered upon our company records, and a copy sent to the family of the deceased and one forwarded to the Richmond Dispatch, with the request to assign them a place in its columns. Fred. Carter.
