One thousand Dollars reward. --My woman, Sarah, with two children, left my premises on Monday evening, the 2d instant, about 6 o'clock, and is doubtless either in Richmond or making her way to the enemy's lines. I will give a reward of one thousand Dollars for their delivery to me, or to any jail in the city, so that I get them. Sarah is a mulatto woman; medium size; about twenty-six years old; good teeth; long bushy hair; answers promptly when spoken to; is usually cheerful and polite; nicely dressed, and is an unusually good-looking woman. Her oldest child is a sprightly boy, named Smith, about three and a half years old; the other, a very bushy-hair girl, one and a half year old. A boy named Stephen, hired last year at the Ballard House, left my premises with her. She claims that he is her step-son. George D. Pleasants. ja 4--6t
General Price. --A special dispatch from the Meridian Clarion, published in this paper on Saturday last, stated that Major-General Price died at Dooley's ferry, Lafayette county, Arkansas, on the 1st of December, 1864.

Later from Europe. Foreign dates to the 22d ultimo have been received. The Pope had written a letter acknowledging the receipt of an address from the Commissioners of the Confederate States in Europe, and announcing his intention to urge peace at all times. The English papers rather have Lincoln on the back over his late message. Advices received in England from Bahia confirm the news of the capture and burning of vessels by the pirate Sea King (Shenandoah). The ship Isabella, from New York for Bremen, had put into Fayal, leaking.

Two hundred Dollars reward. --Ran away from the undersigned, on the 25th ultimo, my negro man, William Melton. Said boy is about five feet eight inches high; gingerbread color, with whiskers; about thirty years old; looks downcast when spoken to. Said negro obtained a pass to go to Mr. Sydnor's, in Hanover county, on the above-mentioned day, and has not been heard from since. I will give the above reward if taken within the enemy's line, or one hundred dollars if taken in ours. John P. Harwood. ja 6--3t*
