Notice. --There was placed in the jail of the county of Charlotte, on the 23d of March last, a negro man represented as a runaway. The negro is not disposed to give the name of his owner. He calls himself by the name of Richard. I understand from Mr H S Carrott of Greensville co, Va, that this boy was sold in Richmond by Dickinson & Hill, on the 2d or 3d of last December, as the property of James Brown's estate. The boy is 23 or 24 years old, 5 feet 6 or 8 inches high, has good teeth, and is of dark complexion. His owner will please come forward, prove property, pay charges, and receive his negro. Thos H Smith, Jailor of Charlotte co, Va. ap 28--1aw6w*
The Daily Dispatch: June 3, 1863., [Electronic resource], The times correspondent in the South. (search)
The times correspondent in the South. Under date of Richmond, March 23, the Southern correspondent of the Times writes a letter, of which the following is an extract: At this moment the Confederate States, no less or scarcely less than the Federal, are floating swiftly along a current which, if this war be protracted for ten months more, will plunge both sections alike into that great ocean of repudiation, which is consciously and without a shudder contemplated at Washington, but toward which there is at least great repugnance professed at Richmond. In both sections alike the result is that everything resembling property is eagerly sought for, as a safe vehicle for the conveyance of a fraction of those promises to pay with which every man, ragged and tattered though in some instances he may be, is heavily freighted. At the slave market in Richmond not a day passes but negroes and negress are eagerly bought at prices varying from $2,000 to $2,500.
There pairs of shoes were taken from negro boys March 23d, believed to have been stolen. Any one that can prove property, and pay for this advertisement, can get them by applying to Mrs. Schontarber, Broad st, 2d door above 2d. mh 26--2t*
A Bank case. --A novel case was brought to the attention of the Mayor yesterday.--From the testimony of Mr. E. M. Norvell, clerk in the Bank of Virginia, it appeared that on the 23d of March last, Thomas Flaherty came into bank and asked for a statement of his account. A statement was given him showing that he had at that time $6,926.90 to his credit. In the course of an hour after this statement had been furnished him he drew a check on the bank, which was cashed, for two thousand dollars more than there was there to his credit, and when the fact was discovered and he was informed that he had overdrawn, and was requested to make good his account, he declined to do so upon the ground that the bank had refused some time previously to rectify a mistake of $50 made against him in paying him a check. The Mayor requested Mr. Norvell, as this was an entirely novel case, to make his complaint in writing, in order that he (the Mayor) might proceed in the matter strictly according
to Wilmington. After his departure nothing was heard of him until about the first of March, when the Hon. A. R. Boteler, with whom he had scraped a table acquaintance at the Ballard House, received a telegram from him dated Wilmington, N. C., stating that he had been robbed of every cent he had in the world.--In a few days after the date of this telegram he reappeared at the Ballard House, this time registering himself as "Roezio Lugo, M. D., Wilmington." He stayed at the hotel until the 23d March, and then disappeared without paying his bill, which amounted to $552. The detectives were put on the look out for him, but could hear nothing of him, except that he had been last seen to go into a boarding house on the corner of 8th and Marshall streets. Last Saturday morning detective John Reece being in Tappahannock, Essex co., on other business, recognized the absconding debtor of the Ballard House in the person of one of three men who were just in the act of crossing the Rappahann

After being sentenced, however, he admitted his guilt and gave his true name, and confessed that he enlisted in Baltimore on the 23d of March in the 23d U. S. infantry, was twenty-three years of age, and had deserted. He said his punishment was just, and he hoped others would take warning by his fate. A Washington telegram, of the 24th, says "Garrett Davis says he will to morrow introduce resolutions in favor of peace and in favor of opening negotiations with the rebels. and if they fall, to recognize rebellion." Ex Senator C C of Alabama, and Jacob Thompson, of Mississippi, have arrived at Halifax, and are reporte
The Tribune's authentic secret information from Richmond. The New York Tribune, under the heading of "Lee's Despair, " "His Army Anxious for Peace," "Prominent Union Men of the South, " etc., publishes the following rigamarole from its Washington correspondent, who very well says, "that for every fact I am about to state there is unimpeachable authority." We publish the account entire, as likely to afford considerable amusement to our readers: Washington, March 23.--Information has been placed in my hands touching several points of great importance in regard to the rebellion, its military strength, its condition, the opinions and hopes of its political and military leaders, and the judgment of one of its most prominent men upon the possibilities and terms of peace. Without comment of mine, I submit them to you with the single remark, that for every fact I am about to state there is unimpeachable authority, and that these statements bear, in themselves, evidence of their au
