$10 reward. --Ranaway from my farm, about 5 miles below Richmond, on the 3d inst., my man Aaron. He is between 5½ and 6 feet high, of a dark complexion, has a full face, generally wears whiskers, and, when spoken to, speaks rather slowly. I bought him from Capt Belcher, near Fairfield Race Course, who owns his wife, and about whose premises he may be lurking, or he may have hired himself out as a free man on some of the public works near the city, or attempted to escape with some of the volunteer companies leaving the city. I will pay the above reward for his delivery to me in Richmond or in some jail so that I may get him. Jas. M. Taylor, je 5--tf Of the firm of Jas. M. Taylor & Son.
Southern Bank Convention. --The Bank Convention of the Confederate States organized in Atlanta, Ga., on the 3d inst. G. B. Lamar, Esq., (late of New York city,) was chosen President, and J. S. Gibbes, Secretary. A correspondent of the Charleston Mercury writes: The business at the morning session was referred to a committee. The said committee reported at 4 o'clock P. M. The greatest harmony prevailed. All seemed disposed to devise and aid in carrying out liberal means in support of the Government of the Confederate States. Resolutions were unanimously passed, recommending the banks throughout the Confederate States to receive for dues, and in deposit, Treasury notes. A resolution was also passed recommending the railroad companies to receive the Treasury notes for fares and freights. Other important resolutions were passed. The prompt action of this large Bank representation will doubtless have a fine effect in giving full confidence to the public in the issues
Inundation of Chicot county, Ark. --Great Damage Done.--The Lake Village (Chicot county, Ark.,) Press, of the 23d ult., has the following: The high stage of the Mississippi has been a source of great alarm to our planters. The crops were in the most promising condition, and it was expected that Chicot would be able to meet the exigencies of war, but a new calamity--one quite unexpected — has fallen upon us. On Thursday, the 16th inst. the inexorable river cut its way through the narrow neck of land which separates it from Lake Chicot. Since that time the water in the lake has risen at the rate of two feet per diem, so that, as we write, it is within a few inches of the bank. We are cut off from all land communication, and many plantations on the river and lake are materially damaged. Some planters are engaged night and day in erecting levees, and the greatest anxiety is felt as to the issue of this irremediable disaster. Those who have most suffered on the lake
The Machiavellian policy of Great Britain towards the United States.[from the New York Herald, June 2.] The details of the debate in the House of Lords, on the 16th ultimo as received by the America's mails, and published yesterday, gives us particulars, respecting the language used on that occasion, of the gravest importance, and of a far more aggressive nature towards the United States than had been previously reported by telegraph. Our correspondence by the America, published this morning, still further developed the offensive policy of the English Government. The Lord Chancellor, who is the authoritative exponent of the Palmerston Ministry in the Upper House, had not only repudiated the maritime code adopted by the Treaty of Paris, but had gone so far as to pronounce that the United States has no right to punish British privateers in Jefferson Davis' service as pirates! He added that the war of the Confederated States against the North was a just one, and their rights

The municipal election at San Francisco, on the 21st ult., resulted in the triumph of the People's Union ticket by an average majority of 1,900. The contest was very exciting, and business was generally suspended to give everybody an opportunity to participate. Five hundred picked men have been enrolled for Liffit's volunteer regiment, including one company of light artillery and four companies of infantry. When the regiment is full its services will be tendered to the General Gover
