Pardoned. --Two slaves, named Jack and Ben, owned by F. N. Fitzhugh, of Caroline co., who were condemned to be sold and transported beyond the limits of the United States about two years since, by the County Court of Caroline, for setting fire to a barn, were pardoned by the Governor on the 21st, and restored to the agent of owner suddenly disappeared. It appeared on their trial that they were incited to the commission of the offence by him. After condemnation an order was given by Fitzhugh for the payment to an agent of the amount of the assessed value of the negroes. The Auditor of Public Accounts refused to honor the draft, a law having been pas been passed to meet such cases many years since. If the judgment of the Court had been allowed to stand, the State would have gotten the two slaves for nothing, which the General Assembly did not think was exactly in accordance with justice, so they authorized the Governor to release them. Fitzhugh is said now to be in Texas.
e name chosen by one of the first companies who went into service from this city. It owned its existence to the active exertion of Daniel Hagerty, who on the inception of hostilities, gathered together a band of choice spirits ready to peril their life in defence of our threatened rights. They have been stationed for several weeks past in the vicinity of Fredericksburg. Should the enemy conclude to land at Acquia Creek, they are the very boys to meet him and rebuke his presumption in a most effective and convincing way. The company is armed with the deadly Parrott rifled cannon, which they know how to handle. The following is a list of the officers of the Purcell Battery, viz: Captain, R. L. Walker; 1st Lieut., Dan'l. Hagerty; 2d Lieut., Wm. Pegram; 3d Lieut., Wm. Dabney; 1st Sergeant, James Allen; 2d Sergeant; Fitzhugh; 3d Sergeant; McGruder; 4th Sergeant H. Eddins; 1st Corporal, C. G.
