$200 reward. --On Thursday last whiled was in the War Department on business, I sent my servant, Austin, who is no wall known in Richmond, to the post-office, since which time I have not seen him or been able to obtain any information of his whereabouts. If he has been impressed I will give $20 to any person who will inform me where he is. If he has been kidnapped, I will give $100 for his recovery. If he has run off, which I do not belive, I will give $300 for his recovery; or if he has been killed, which I fear, I will pay $200 for the conviction of his murderer. my 20--4t* James Lyons.

een equalled since its organization. The battle of Shilch fully tested the comparative strength of the two forces, and though on the second day we were compelled to withdraw, the subsequent analysis, by the common sense of the men, of the two days' fight has fully provan the superfority of our arms. The fact is beginning to be generally understood that on Monday we had not more than twelve or fifteen thousand men on the field to contend with the fresh and overwhelming reinforcements of Buell, and our obstinate restatance on that occasion has given the encouragement, that with the additional forces now at command, and the splendid reorganization which has taken place, we shall be in truth invinclole. Again, it is to be borne in mind that in the fight of Sunday we took the steel out of forty thousand men. They who punished us at Donelson found their match at Shilch, and fied like routed sheep to the cover of their gunboats, so thorouguly whipped that they never will fight as well

The War in the Southwest. scenes at Corinth — miles of camps — preparations for the great struggle — Donelson and Shilch — tacties of the enemy — skirmishing, &c., &c. [from our army correspondent.] Corinth, Miss., Thursday, May 8, 1862. All quiet around us. The sun is shedding a balmy warmth, a gentle breezs is making music among the whispering leaves, and but for the occasional clatter of passing cavalry, the rumbling of baggage trains and commissary wagons, and the returning regiments from duty on picket, one would hardly select this staid old town and its enirons as the focus of the eyes of a nation. Looking around me, not a campis visible. The troops are acattered through the woods, on hill sider, and in the valleys. A few Generals have their headquarters here, in cottages whose flowery surroundings are suggestive at once of peaceful tenants, and other buildings, great and small, are appropriated to various army purposes — some for ordnance, some for

paths of memory and the hearty year us to lift the veil of the future, beqeath which lies embosomed our weal or woe. Heaven grant that if to morrow is to witness a crimson field, the costly sacrifles we may make shall be the last demanded to ensure a permanent peace. Quel Qu'um. P.S — The skirmishing all tided to above was upon the Farmington and Montery roads, and resulted in the killing and wounding of several of our men. No other damagedone. Federal loss unknown. Our troops retired a short distance nearer the entrenchments. Such in the class proximity of the enemy that their skirmishers killed one of our man only one hundred yards from our works. Our Generals were in the saddle nealy all last night, anticipating a battle early this morning, and making preparations accordingly. It seems impossible that the event can be delayed more than twenty-four hours. Three full companies of Federats, captured at Huntsville, have just arrived, en routs for the sunny South. "Q"

Again, there is not an individual in the army of the Mississppi who does not daily realize the superiority of our position, the extent of our preparations, and the apparent impregnability of our fortifications. Confidence in our Generals is supreme, and a spirit of emulation has been born among the various regiments that will result in
Pardons. --Gov. Letcher, on Monday, pardoned and released Benjamin DeGroot from the city jail, whither he was sent about seven months since for exhibiting the game of faro. Defendant having been fined $1,000 by the Court of Hustings for the offence, and not being able to pay a cent of the amount, and the Governor not being authorized to remit the same, the pardon would have been of small avail had not the Court generously stepped forward and released him from its payment. DeGroot belongs to a New Orleans regiment, and will immediately re-enter the army as a private. Samuel Bowyer, who was sent by the Circuit Court of Jefferson county to the Penitentiary for six years for murder in the second degree, was also pardoned by the Governor on Monday, for good cause and at the solicitation of many respectable residents of Jefferson county. The prisoner had served out most of his sentence, and the "clemency" extended was as much a matter of form as fact. On Friday last the Go
