One hundred Dollars Reward for the apprehension and delivery of my man Amos Harris, who ran away on the 4th instant from my residence, on the Mechanicsville turnpike, near the toll-gate. He is about six feet high, a little stooped in the shoulders, and about sixty years old; grey head and beard. He formerly belonged to William Copland, Esq., who lived near the Yellow Tavern, in Henrico county, and on the Mechanicsville turnpike. He is probably lurking in the neighborhood of the Yellow Tavern or about Richmond. I will pay the above reward for his delivery to me. William Frank, Henrico county. se 28--4t*
y dismissed the parties. Immediately thereafter, their counsel, Messrs. J. Leeds Carroll and Daniel Ratcliffe, demanded the warrant upon which their clients had been arrested, remarking that it would hereafter be seen whether felonious charges should be permitted to be made against respectable gentlemen with impunity. John, slave of Robert Lumpkin, and Mat, slave of George T. Ratcliffe, were charged with burglariously entering the dwelling-house of Mr. George Lee on the night of the 7th instant and stealing six thousand dollars' worth of wines, brandies, and other groceries. Eight or ten days after the robbery was committed, Mr. Lee, in company with offices Moore and Perrin, searched a room occupied jointly by the accused, and found in it a large number of jars, demijohns, jugs, decanters, &c., in three of which were wines and whiskey similar to what had been stolen. Colonel Waiter D. Blair, from whom Mr. Lee purchased his liquors, compared the wine found in these negroes' roo
Important information. --The New Orleans Era of the 13th instant copies the following from the Vicksburg Herald, which paper, being so near the seens it describes, ought to be well posted: From unquestionable authority we have received intelligence that a very heavy force of rebel cavalry or mounted infantry is now at Jackson, Mississippi, evidently preparing to strike a sudden and formidable blow at some portion of our lines. Our informant states that Generals Forrest, Dick Taylor and Gholson are all at Jackson, and that troops are camped around the city for several miles in extent. Forest is compelled to walk upon crutches, as he has not yet fully recovered from the wound received at Tupelo, but is perfectly able to manage a horse, and is almost constantly in the saddle, superintending the various movements of the troops. General Wirt Adams is also here, but his authority is completely ignored, Generals Taylor and Forrest assuming the entire control and directi
Runaway. --Ran away from the subscriber on the 24th instant, at Manchester, boy Henry; about sixteen years of age; five feet high; nearly black; slender; long face and thick lips; on right or left side a wen about the size of a walnut; has eruption on his skin, resembling mosquito bites. When the said boy left he had on a soldier's jacket and a common cotton shirt, rather light-colored pants, old hat and shoes; all of which clothes were very dirty. I will give one hundred Dollars in the present Confederate currency for the apprehension and delivery of said Boy to Messrs. Lee & Bowman, Richmond, or in any jail so I can get him. Said boy was sold by Messrs. Hill, Dickinson & Co. for James Gray's sons. He is supposed to be lurking about Richmond, or at Mr. Mallory's, on the Mountain road, ten miles above the city, where his mother lives, or in Manchester, where he has a sister living with Mr. Rowlett Winfree.

Daring circuit around Newbern. --The Raleigh Confederate says that Major Whitford made a circuit around Newbern, North Carolina, with a detachment, of forty men of the Sixty-seventh regiment, and has returned safe in camp. On approaching the railroad, eleven miles below Newbern, at seven o'clock on the morning of the 26th ultimo, he tore up the railroad and waited for the approach of the train from Morehead city, which was to arrive at that point at half-past 9 o'clock. He had only been there a few moments when four negroes came down the road on a hand-car to see if the road was all right. The hand-car was captured with the negroes. This was in sight of a camp of Yankee cavalry and one company of Yankee infantry, at Creation station. The road was torn up one mile below. The alarm was given, and the Yankees advanced down in such force that Major Whitford had to retire. He made his way out through swamps and creeks. The Yankees were sure they would capture the whole party,
was deceived by false information from his scouts, and the Yankees state as much on him. We copy from the correspondence as follows: I have been informed that the following was General Hood's plan of operations on the 30th of August, Yankee Howard's grand corps of eighteen thousand, made a forced march of sixteen miles from Fairburn, on the West Point road, to Jonesboro', on the Macon road. They arrived at Jonesboro' on the Macon road. They arrived at Jonesboro' on the evening of the 30th, crossed Flint river, and took position between the river and the town. This is the head of Flint river, and here it is a mere creek, about knee deep. Hood sent, Hardee's corps, which was only twelve miles from Jonesboro', and Lee's which was fifteen, to meet this movement. I do not know when Hardee moved, but presume that he moved during the day of the 30th. Lee never moved until ten that night, and did not straighten out and get fairly in motion until daylight. Some Yankees has struck
rmy was between Jonesboro' and Rough and Ready, not over twelve miles from right to left. I believe this was his position; and it follows that General Hood was deceived by false information from his cavalry and scouts, And they must have been very tardy in conveying information of Howard's march from Fairburn to Jonesboro'. It must have been about night on the 30th when General Hood was informed of Howard's movement upon Jonesboro', and before night toward was there. On the night of the 31st, when Hardee informed Hood that our assault upon the enemy at Jonesboro' had failed, he was greatly astonished. He threw up his hands, it is said, exclaiming, "My God !" He had overestimated the courage of his army; and the mistake had been fatal, He fell into the opposite extreme of distrust, and ordered the evacuation of Atlanta, which he had not, until then, contemplated. He still had the Augusta railroad, which the enemy could not reach, and which would have enabled him to hold Atlanta.
Seventy Dollars Reward. --Ran away from the Third Section of the James River and Kanawha Canal, about the middle of July last, a bright mulatto man, named William. He has a bushy head of hair, a smiling countenance and polite manners; is about twenty-four years old, and five feet ten or eleven inches in height. He belongs to the estate of Dr. J. L. Trent, deceased, of Cumberland, and may have gone to that county or to Richmond, where he has relations, or made his way to some military station, as he was last year in the service of General Longstreet, and acquired a fondness for camp life. He had some military clothing with him. He has a rupture, which may serve more readily to identify him. The above reward, and reasonable expenses will be paid for his delivery at the office of the James River and Kanawha Company in Richmond; at the plantation of J. Robertson, seven miles below Lynchburg; to the undersigned, or any agent of the Company; or half the sum for such information
