Brigadier-General Hays.

Up to the period of the capture of this Federal officer we never heard that there was any son of Richmond a traitor, fighting in the enemy's ranks, certainly not in any prominent position. He, it is said, is a native of this city. We suppose the statement is made on good authority; but it would be gratifying to see it denied. The record of Richmond in respect to the conduct of her sons in this war is very creditable, and it is unfortunate that it should be marred by such a case as that of this General Hays.
