Wanted--1,000 negroes --We wish to hire for the year 1864, one thousand Negroes, to be employed at the Tredegar Iron Works, Richmond, and at our Blast Furnaces in the counties of Rockbridge, Botetourt, and Alleghany, and Collieries in Goochland and Henrico, for which we are willing to pay the market prices. Having made arrangements for a supply of provisions and clothing, we can safely promise that servants entrusted to us shall at all times be well fed and clothed. Our furnaces and other works are located in healthy sections of the country, remote from the enemy's line, offering unusual inducements to the owners of negroes to send them to us. We would be glad to hear from those whose hands we have hired this year as early as possible, as to rehiring them another year, and whether they desire that the hands shall be sent home or retained under our protection at the end of the year. J R Anderson & Co, Tredegar Iron Works, Richmond, Va. oc 26--3taw1m

Murder by robbers. --Justice Baker, of Henrico county, held an inquest yesterday morning over the body of Wm. Black, a resident of Rocketts old field, who died last Saturday night of injuries inflicted upon his person the Thursday night previous by a hand of robbers. Mr. Black, and a friend named Brennan, employed in the armory, had been paid off that day, and on their way home that evening stopped at a barber's shop in Rocketts, east of the bridge, and were shaved. On leaving the barber's shop they noticed several persons on the opposite side of the street, but suspected nothing, and passed on in the direction of their homes.--After going some few hundred yards, and whilst walking arm in arm in high conversation, some one from the rear gave Black a violent blow upon the back of his head with a slung-shot or other blunt instrument, fracturing his skull badly and knocking him down. Brennan seeing two men nigh, ran his hands into his pockets and threatened to kill either of them

Charged with Murder. --Yesterday morning the County Court of Henrico was engaged in the trial of Colin Kitchen, charged with shooting and killing Benjamin B. Read, on the 14th of October last. The evidence proved that Read had charged Kitchen's wife with inconstancy, and had even told him that he (Read) had been intimate with her, and named other parties by whom he would prove the charge. Kitchen did not resent this, and matters passed on quietly for a week, when the parties had another meeting, high words ensued, the two clinched, and in the sniffle Read received a pistol shot which proved fatal two days thereafter. After hearing the evidence and a few remarks of counsel the case was given to the jury, by whom the prisoner was acquitted.
Suspicious. --On Sunday morning last a citizen of Henrico county, when near the Charles City line, discovered three suspicious looking men making their way down the river road, and believing them to be deserters or escaped prisoners hauled them.--They told him they were making their way to Bottom's Bridge on urgent business, and gave him to understand that he had better attend to his own business and let them alone. As he was unarmed he passed on and endeavored to get assistance to pursue them, but failed to do so. If deserters or escaped prisoners, the pickets probably encountered and captured them yesterday morning, or the night before.
