The surrender at Cumberland Gap. The Bristol (Tenn,) Advocate contains some particulars of the surrender of the Confederate force at Cumberland Gap. It says: It is with deep mortification that we announce the unconditional surrender of Cumberland Gap to the Federal forces on Wednesday, the 7th inst. According to the best information we can gather there were 2,100 men in the garrison when it was surrendered. It is reported, however, that something near a thousand refused to comply with the surrender, and made their escape. Of these latter it is said that some two hundred belonged to Col. Slemp's (64th Va,) regiment. Our loss in stores, arms, &c., must be considerable. Among them was Leyden's battery, of the 9th Georgia battalion--one of the most splendid batteries in the service.-- It was presented to the Confederacy by the merchants of Liverpool, and was stationed near this place for several weeks during the past summer. That splendid company, the Gilmer Grays, who w
Ran Away from the subscriber on the 9th inst. my negro man named Joe. He is about 6 feet high, large, thick lips, large feet and hands, quite a stout man, dark ginger color Blacksmith by trade. I will give $50 reward for his delivery to me, or in any jail so that I can get him. Wm. J. Meador, Farmville, Va. se 16--6t*
Counterfeiter arrested. --Matthew Norton, who hails from Memphis, Tenn., and who, at the time, was in possession of seven thousand dollars counterfeits, in Confederate Treasury notes, was arrested in Atlanta, Ga., on the 14th inst.--This young counterfeiter is also a spy, having been observed for several days inspecting the fortifications about Charleston. He had among his papers a record of his oath of allegiance to the United States Government, and a passport giving him permission to go out of Memphis with a wagon and team. After his arrest Matthew Norton confessed that he had passed about $3,000 of these counterfeits in the city of Charleston, S. C. We append below such a description of them as will insure their recognition: $100, 2 Cents Per Day.--This counterfeit is of the issue of J. T. Patterson, Columbia, S. C., duty July 4, 1862. In the genuine but one of the masts of the ship run up to the telegraph wire; in the counterfeit both masts run up to that wire; in
Later from the North. Baltimore papers, of the 17th instant, have been received. They contain nothing of interest from the seat of war in Tennessee, Northern Georgia, or Virginia, and nothing new from Charleston. The following is a summary of the general news: Writ of Habeas corpus Suspended. Lincoln has issued a proclamation suspending throughout the United States the writ of habeas corpus in cases where military, naval, or civil officers of the U. States hold persons under their command or in their custody either as prisoners of war, spies, or aiders or abettors of the enemy, or of officers, soldiers, or seamen enrolled, drafted, or mustered, or enlisted in or belonging to the land or naval forces of the United States, or as deserters therefrom, or otherwise amenable to law, or the rules and articles of war, etc., or for resisting a draft, or for any other offence against the military and naval service. Expedition to Texas. Under date of New Orleans, Sept. 1,
200 dollars reward. --Ran away from the residence of the writer, corner of 7th and Leigh streets, on Monday morning last, a gingerbread-colored boy, named Jim, about 14 years old, very large mouth, very sprightly and lively, and fond of singing comic songs when at leisure. He is very fond of soldiers; and my impression is that he has gone off with some of the local companies around Richmond or Petersburg, which latter place he was raised by a Mr. or Mrs. Piermon, and sold here 17th March last, at Lee & James's , by C C Burton. There are no scars recollected, except whip marks from appearance when he was very young. The above reward will be paid if delivered to Hill, Dickinson & Co, Richmond.

The "Rebel Rams" in England. The following is Earl Russell's reply to the memorial of the Emancipation Society relative to the steam rams in the Mersey: Foreign Office, Aug. 13. Gentlemen — I have received your letter calling attention to a subject of very grave and impressing importance, namely: the fitting out or equipping two powerful iron-plated steam rams, which I am informed are intended to commit hostilities against the Government and people of the United States. My attention has long been directed to these subjects. Both the Treasury and Home Departments have, at my request, made most anxious inquiries upon the subject of these steam rams. You are aware that by the foreign enlistment act a ship is liable to be detained, and the owners are subject to a penalty when the ship is armed or equipped for purposes of war, and the owners intend to use her against some State or community in friendship with her Majesty. It is necessary to prove both the
Fifty dollars reward. --Ranaway from our farm, in Nelson county, on the 17th of August, a negro woman named Eliza. She is about 23 years old, likely, black, and above the average size. She is originally from North Carolina, was purchased by us in Richmond, and lived with one of us a short time at Madison Court House. She was apprehended and made her escape from Mr. Thomas Martin's, on the Orange and Alexandria Railroad, near Covesville, Albemarle county, last week, and is doubtless making her way towards Gordonsville or Richmond, or the Yankee lines. $50 will be given for her apprehension and delivery to as, or $30 if secured in jail, so that we get her. Address Madison Court-House or Howardsville. Z R Lewis, D J Hartsook, A R Blakey. se 8--10t*
