Runaway in jail. --Was committed to the jail of the country of Westmoreland, on the 29th of May last, a Negro Man, calling himself James Toliver. The said Negro is of a tawny complexion, and is about 5 feet 6 inches high, and about 26 years old; no scars of note about his person. The said Negro had on when committed a red flannel shirt dark grey coat, and black pants. He was sold from this county in October, 1860 by Mr. John E. Wilson, to (he says) Mr. Andrew Jones, of Wilmington, N. C. from which place he ran away; but that Mr. Jones lives now in Richmond. The owner of said Negro will come forward, prove property, pay charges, and take him away, else he will be dealth with as the law directs Geo. W.

Artillery experiments upon an iceberg --The English screw steam-frigate Mersey, Captain H. Caldwell, has reached Halifax.-- When approaching the banks of Newfoundland, Capt. C. fell in with some icebergs, and thought it would be interesting to experiment on them with rifled cannon. Accordingly, an Armstrong shell was fired at a small iceberg, about 150 feet high, from a distance of four miles and a half. Such was the effect that a block of ice, judged to be of about 100 tons, fell from the summit. This large weight, falling from the top of the berg, removed the centre of gravity, which caused the whole fabric to roll over and rock to and fro. It was considered a most satisfactory test of the vast range and destructiveness of these missiles.--Further trials were made with other projectiles supplied to the navy — namely, hollow shot, percussion, and shrapnel, and time fuze shell, &c.--all tending to exhibit one feature in modern warfare at sea, viz: the extreme probability of ev

Abraham Lincoln (search for this): article 10
at this time so tormenting to the quidnuncs will be shown to have been a very lower of strength to our cause. Before this letter will see the light, the so called "Congress of the United States" will have met probably, and the Abolitionists perse, and the renegade wretches who once professed to be our allies, and the traitorous villains of the Wheeling dynasty, will have exchanged greetings and uttered their mutual Laus Deos to the "Star Spangled Banner," the "glorious Union," and Abraham Lincoln! "Yankee Doodle" will have been whistled, sung, played, danced, and apotheosized to the delight of all Yankeedom, and the "Pilgrim Fathers" served up in the most recherche re-hash that a gullible people ever swallowed. The glorious Union! Where is it? "An echo answers where?" "Gone glimmering like a school-boy's tale," (?) with a big dog at his heels.--For some time the solution of the question, "where is Beauregard?" like that involved in the identify of the individual who offered

ed at the storming of Sumter.--Some favored personage, like the fly who was in at the death of Cock Robin, had seen him die. Another had caught the glitter of his eye a la "Ancient Mariner," at Pickens.--"Another much wiser than both these together," knew him to be in Memphis. He was and was not. He was here, he was in the other world; he was in Washington, "taking observations;" he was in Richmond, at York, and where not? Well, I guess he'll turn up somewhere else before long, and satisfy Yankee du tell and Yankee doodle dom that he is alive, and kicking their carcasses through Washington, the same bodies being kicked through Baltimore into sundry shocking bad cocked hats, perhaps the cocked hat of Field Marshall Tureen. It is rumored that the hoary headed traitor, Winfield Scott, is unable to feed himself on account of his gout.

It is rumored that the hoary headed traitor, Winfield Scott, is unable to feed himself on account of his gout. He will certainly have to sup sorrow from the cup which his own hands has prepared with a stronger gout than that with which he has drunk down the intoxicating draughts of flattery, by which he has been kept alive beyond the allotted period of an honest and honorable life. Poor old man! What a spectacle! It is said that the last infirmity of the fallen mind has long since come over his spirit — the lust and love of gold; and for the
earth has been. The birth-place of a thing so mean." The cross-eyed son of Mars, the redoubtable Brigadier General Butler, still lies safely ensconced in Old Point; or, sending out some thousand or so of the representatives of Lynn, Roxbury and Lowell, on a tour of observation in advance, who report the coast clear, he ventures as far as Hampton; and, it is apocryphally stated, even as far as Newport News. He would sooner this day meet a lion in his pathway than that same Brigadier General Magruder. And, mark my words, if an engagement between the two forces in that region occur, Butler will not be seen in the fray. A constitutional coward cannot fight. His legs always prove rascally on the battle field, and be sure, as Butler is cross-eyed, he will look both ways for number one. I am told that the old church, in Hampton, has been most foully desecrated by the Yankee soldiers. These wretches, descendants of the Puritans, as some of them claim to be, have torn up the
