The reported advance of the enemy on Southwestern Virginia. [special Dispatch to the Richmond Dispatch.] Lynchburg, Oct. 25. --The reported advance of the enemy on Bristol is unfounded. Our pickets are still beyond Blountsville and Zollicoffer. B.
The enemy in Virginia — a raid near Norfolk. In Southwestern Virginia all is quiet. It was reported on Saturday that the Yankees were advancing in heavy force on Bristol, and had driven in our pickets at Blountsville, Tenn., nine miles from there. This report, as will be seen from a telegram from our correspondent in that quarter is incorrect. Our pickets are beyond Blountsville and Zollicoffer. Gen.

Notice --Ranaway from the subscriber, Tuesday, 15th inst., a negro man named Len. Said boy is about medium height, 18 or 20 years old, complexion very dark. He was purchased in Richmond in November last, and perhaps is trying to work towards his old home, which is in Madison county, Va. I will give $23 for his apprehension, if in this State, and $50 if taken in the State of Virginia, or if lodged in jail so that I can get him. He had on when he left two shirts--one checked, the other white, both badly worn; pants nearly worn out, one pair drawers, barefooted, and cap made out of gray homespun cloth. No marks recollected, except a few with the lash. Has a pleasing countenance when spoken to, but full and low formed. W. Allen Stokes, WentWorth, Rockingham Co., N. C. oc 21--d1tw2t*
