Leroy Yersy (search for this): article 1
Ran away on the 30th of July, my Negro Man, John Nicholas; aged twenty-one years; small size, but well built; five feet five or six inches high; full head of hair; rather dark complected; small scar on one side of his face. I expect he is trying to make his way to the enemy, or he may be trying to pass himself as a free man, in company with Leroy Yersy, a free man, as neither of them have been seen since the above date. A liberal reward will be paid if he is delivered to me, or confined in any place so I can get him. Call on Governor street, opposite the Examiner office. R. B. Harris. au 26--2t*
When the Greeks had destroyed the navy of Xerxes, at Salamis, and had sent that monarch in terror back to Susa, Mardonins, the general whom he had left behind to finish the work he had so unfortunately begun, thought it would be a master-strokGreece in general, and to Athens in particular. He really believed that they would not be able to withstand the power of Xerxes, and spoke from his heart when he advised them to yield while it was yet time, and avoid the terrible consequences of con all the eloquence in his power, "foreseeing," as he said, that they would not always be able to carry on the war against Xerxes, whose power was more than human, and whose arms were very long. The terms, indeed, were so favorable that they might wey as they wished, and were to live under their own laws. But the Athenian spurned the offer. They would have nothing of Xerxes; and they were determined to make war upon him as long as the foot of a Persian soldier pressed the soil of any part of G
engagement took place on Tuesday afternoon at Tillotson's farm, on our extreme right, about ten miles distant from Petersburg. Our pickets were driven in at that point by the enemy's cavalry, in large force, when an engagement ensued, in which the enemy was driven back with considerable loss. It was in this affair that Lieutenant-Colonel Robert A. Caskie, of the Tenth Virginia cavalry, was wounded, as before reported. Rumors are current of a sharp cavalry engagement on Thursday, near Colonel Wyatt's farm, four miles from Petersburg, in which the enemy was defeated with serious loss. These reports lack confirmation. The train last evening brought over fifty-nine prisoners, captured by General Pickett's command, near Bermuda Hundred, on Thursday. There were also two deserters, who came in to claim the privileges guaranteed in General Orders No. 65. The affair in which these men were captured was the one which we yesterday located near Chester station. Its object was only to

Confederate States District Court. --Judge Halyburton presided a few minutes in this court yesterday; but, as on the preceding day, adjourned without disposing of any business. The case of Frederick W. Boyd was postponed till Tuesday, when his Honor will probably render his decision. The motion on the part of William Barret, for an injunction to compel P. A.

for peace. It is also rumored that the commission is now on its way to Richmond. This rumor is said to have had a sensible effect on the gold market, causing a decline of some four per cent. [The Chronicle adds to the above: "If there is any foundation for the above, it is the first intimation we have had of it."] New York, August 24.--Gold closed at 254½. The rumor about Peace Commissioners is still afloat, but little confidence is placed in it. Cincinnati, August 24.--Fernando Wood, in his speech at Dayton last night, asserted that a peace man, on a peace platform, would be nominated at Chicago, and that in this the Convention would be harmonious.

New York, August 24. --By the arrival of the steamer Haze, from North Carolina, we learn that a new piratical steamer, one of a number, is now in Wilmington, receiving her armament.
