Benjamin Bragg (search for this): article 2
Mechanics meeting. --According to adjournment, a meeting of the mechanics of Richmond was held at the City Hall on Saturday night last. At the hour of half-past 7 o'clock Mr. Benjamin Bragg took the chair, and was assisted by Mr. Adolphus Gary as Secretary. The report from the committee appointed at the last meeting to memorialize the Legislature on the subject of reducing the prices of provisions and of adopting some measures against speculation, was then called for when. Mr. E. B. Robinson, chairman, stepped forward and read the memorial which had been prepared and adopted by that committee, as well as the bill reported by the Legislative committee to put town extortion and protect the men of salaries from the heartless attempts of those traitorous traders who are every day trying to grind them to the very dust. After the adoption of the report of the committee, Mr. Robinson offered the following resolutions, which were adopted. "1. Resolved, That it is wi

Runaway--$100 reward. --Ran away, on Monday, 14th September, from the Florida Hospital No. 11, in Richmond, Billy Johnson, the property of Mrs. Sarah A. Forlame, Chesterfield, Va. Said man is about 24 years old, light gingerbread color, thick lip, pop eyes, bushy head of hair (curly), stout made, about 5 feet 9 inches high, hangs his head down when walking; wears his hat or cap one side, his weight is about 165 or 170 pounds can cut hair and shave, and might pass off for a free man very readily. No doubt but he has gone off with some officer or private to the army above Orange C. H., or to the South--possibly making his way to the North. He had no papers about his person; or, if any they were forged. I will give the above reward for his delivery to any jail so I can get him again. D. A. Brown. oc 5--1t*

From the Southwest. Atlanta, Oct. 3--10-12 A. M. --The trains report all quiet before Chattanooga. A species to the Intelligencer, dated the 30th, says: "In the exchange of wounded prisoners to-day we had twenty-five hundred Yankees, and they had forty-one Confederates." Gen. Dan. Adams has determined to remain in the Yankee lines until his condition is so improved as to justify his safe removal. Gov. Brown reached camp to-day, and was enthusiastically cheered by the troops. The enemy still held Knoxville.
Joseph Bryant (search for this): article 2
Notice. --Was brought to my lad, Sept. 7th, 1863, a negro man named George Washington; says he belongs to Joseph Bryant, of Bosher Parish, Louisiana, and was hired in the army to cook for Burrel McKinney, of the 9th Louisiana regiment, and was captured by the Yankees with our wagon trains in Pennsylvania, and made his escape near Fredericksburg and swam the river, and says that Col. Hodge, of the 9th Louisiana regiment, is acquainted with him. Said negro is of a black complexion and about 23 years old, is 5 feet 10 inches high, and smartly knock kneed. The owner will come forward, pay expenses, and take him away. Robt. Lumpkin. oc 5--1aw5t
the town, in which were two 32 pounders, which were spiked and abandoned, but the enemy, had unspiked and had put them in position in the fort. They have also a fortification on the north side of the river, from which they could enfilade our line on the left in case of its advance into the valley or plain below. --Some of our sharpshooters had their rifle pits in 300 yards of the enemy. Longstreet's corps now occupy the position on the left, near the base of Lookout Mountain, Hill's next, Buckner's next, and Polk's the extreme right. Our informant, who belonged to Longstreet's corps, says that on Friday evening last, near night, the enemy made a demonstration on our left with one piece of artillery, supported by two regiments of infantry, and fired grape upon our lines. Two South Carolina regiments, of Hood's division, (which occupies the extreme left,) advanced to meet them, and were fired upon by a body of sharpshooters, masked at the distance of ten steps, losing five or si

Damage at Blountsville. --The Bristol Advocate, of Friday, gives the following as the amount of damage done at Blountsville, Tenn., by the late raiders: It is a sad task for us to state that the larger and better portion of the town of Blountsville was reduced to allies. W. W James, John Powell, John Fain, Sr., Dr. N. G. Dulaney, E P Cawood, Rev. N C Baldwin, Mrs. Martha Rhea, F L Bumgardner, and Maj J G Eans, are among those whose houses and effects were consumed. The court-house, with the offices of the clerks of the county and jail, were also consumed. The loss is immense, not less than half a million of dollars.
John Burns (search for this): article 7
Acquitted. --Peter Reynolds, charged with stabbing John Burns on the 11th of August, has been examined before a called court of magistrates and acquitted. John A. Fariss, indicted for stealing $250 worth of clothing from John McDonough, has been tried before Judge Lyons and acquitted.
I can not determine — that he acted under the belief that only three Federal corps had advanced up the valley of the Chickamauga, and that the remainder of Rosecrans's army was still on the north side of the Tennessee, near Chattanooga, and that Burnside had not yet formed a junction with the main body. It such was his belief he was deceived, except as to Burnside, as Gen. Lee was at Gettysburg when he supposed, on the morning of the 2d of July, that the whole of Meade's forces had not then arrBurnside, as Gen. Lee was at Gettysburg when he supposed, on the morning of the 2d of July, that the whole of Meade's forces had not then arrived. And yet it must be admitted that Gen. Bragg acted wisely in giving battle when and where he did. Delay was full of danger; it might bring heavier reinforcements to his antagonist than any he could count upon. Moreover, Rosecrans was not on his guard, and did not look for an attack from an enemy who he supposed would be only too glad to effect his escape. At one time he was wary and active, combining the cunning of the fox with the sudden energy of the panther springing upon its prey; bu
as formerly a member of Congress from California, and voted upon the Southern side of the Kansas question. Henry Roberts, formerly of Co. K., 26th Tennessee, who deserted at Tullahoma on the 1st of July last, and afterwards enlisted in the enemy's ranks, and was captured at the late battle, lighting against us, was executed this morning for desertion. The whole of Stewart's division was ordered out to witness the execution. The Atlanta Appeal, in an article on the probability of Burnside reaching Rosecrans, says: That he had not effected a junction with Rosecrans up to Sunday evening, appears to be the general belief. We have met a gentleman who left the river, some distance above Harrison's landing, on Friday, who informs as that a small force of his command had made their appearance in that vicinity, but nothing was heard of any considerable body. It he attempts to reach Chattanooga on the south side of the river, he will certainly be compelled to run a dangerous
William J. Burton (search for this): article 4
Excitement in Lynchburg. --On Thursday last Wm. J. Burton, company J. Virginia regiment. Corse's brigade, was killed at a hospital in Lynchburg by a free negro named Albert Wood, who struck him with a shovel. The next day a large number of the brigade took the negroes jail and were proceeding to him, when Gen. Corse appeared among them and by his , seizing a musket and threatening to shoot the first man who dared to disobey his orders, the negro was handed over to the civil authorities, the General explaining to the soldiers at the same time the disgrace, their contemplated act, it carried out, would bring upon the brigade. Under charge of the City Council the negro was then returned to jail, and a strong guard placed in attendance to prevent any further attempt at mob law.
