The following telegrams are copied from the Washington Chronicle of the 25th instant, received last night. There was no late news in the paper from either of the principal seats of war, or from the Upper Potomac: General Forrest at Memphis. Memphis, August 21. --This city was attacked at 4 o'clock this morning, by the rebel General Forrest, with three brigades of cavalry, about 3,000 strong. This force left General Smith's front, at Oxford, on the evening of the 18th instant, and made a rapid forced march to this city. They drove in our pickets, and dashed directly into the headquarters of General Washburne, who made a very narrow escape. They then made a rush into General Buckland's headquarters; but he also succeeded in making his escape. They then attacked the Irving prison, but were repulsed by the guard there. They next visited the Gayoso House, expecting to capture General Hurlbut, but he was stopping at a friend's house, and so the rebels did not suc
Five hundred dollars reward will be paid for the delivery to me, at Fluvanna Courthouse, or in any county jail so that I can get him, of my man Jordan, who left my house on the 23d instant. He is about five and a half feet high; has high cheek bones; had on, or with him, a suit of brown homespun. He was raised in Danville, and lived in Charlottesville and Scottsville last year. D. S.

Ran away. --Left my employ, on Wednesday, 24th instant, by request of a lady signing herself "M. E. Goddin," for the purpose of attending a funeral, a slave named Mary, sixteen or eighteen years old, of gingerbread color, with small features; wearing when she left a dark dress, with blue figure, blue-striped apron, and a nun bonnet, with pink trimmings. Believing that she is harbored in or near the city, I will give the usual reward for her arrest, with $50 additional for the arrest of the party so harboring her. Timothy Kerse. au 27--1t*
