Skirmish on the black water. On Tuesday morning last about eight hundred Yankee cavalry, under Col. Spearo, came up from to a point on the Black Water near Franklin, and charged upon two companies of South sharp-shooters, who were supporting a piece of artillery. They were fired into by our men and soon scattered in every direction, leaving two men dead on the field and two others mortally wounded. Eight of the enemy were taken prisoners among them a Captain. These men report a large number of their companions wounded. Not a single man on our side was killed or seriously wounded. This skirmish is regarded by all as a very brilliant little affair. It is also stated from a direct and reliable source, that the enemy are being strongly reinforced at Suffolk.

One hundred dollars reward. --Ranaway from the subscriber, about the 1st of the present month, (March,) 1863, my negro man Dillard. He is 24 years of age, of rather dark complexion, and about six feet in height. He is very intelligent and sprightly, and can read and write. He has been recently hired in Richmond, where he has many acquaintances, and I should not be surprised if he is now there on his way to the Yankees, or he may have taken some other route for their lines. I will pay fifty dollars if he is taken in this city and confined in jail, or one hundred if taken out of Lynchburg and lodged in any other jail, so that I can get him again. S. T. Peters. mh 10--6t*
