Mutineers. --James Kelly, M Courney, Jas Hurley, Jas Sullivan, Pat Fisherty, Jas Calvin, Mike Shea, Nat Hurley, and John Kellcher, were yesterday sent down from the Army of Northern Virginia on the charge of mutiny, and accompanying them was an order that they should be put into double Irons until tried by court-martial. The parties are members of the 1st Va battalion of regulars, under command of Major D B Bridgeford. The battalion has been up to this time employed as provost guard for the Army of Northern Virginia. It appears that these parties, becoming dissatisfied from some cause, on Monday threw down their arms and refused to do further duty. They were immediately packed off to this city, and have been lodged in Castle Thunder. This is the first time that anything of this kind has occurred in any of our armies.
100 Dollars Reward. --Ranaway from the Midlothian Coal Mines, a negro man named Joe, or Joe Hampton. He is about 25 years old, of dark brown color, spare made about 5 feet 10 inches high, with rather large eyes, and somewhat wild expression of countenance, though generally smiling when spoken to. He was bought in January last of Mr. C. C. Burton, near Petersburg, where his friends and connexions are, and he is probably in the neighborhood of that place. The above reward will be paid for his apprehension and delivery in any jail, or to the agent of the Company, at their mines, or to the agent of the Company, at their mines, or in Richmond. my 12--ts
Wounded from the battle of Drewry's Bluff. The last of our wounded from the battlefield of Drewry's Bluff were brought to this city last evening. It is roughly estimated that our wounded from this field since Butler landed at Bermuda Hundreds up to this time will reach as high as twelve or fifteen hundred. There has been no time yet to ascertain the number exactly. Last night there were still at Fort Drewry about two hundred wounded Yankees.
