Iha notorious rebel seout, Secgeeei William E. Tittr

waa mortally wounded on Thursday last. Watsrbury
baa been long known to ear authoritiea u a vigilant,
troublesome soout, with bravery enough Id bl* composi

avoid detection and elade pursuit. Be baa Infestsd ibe
country between tbd Jaaiea river aad our loft, beyond
Petersburg, all summer.
All attempt* to entrap Mm have Mtberto failed. Small
parties have been sent la bis pursuit, but be could never
be overtakes or Identified. On one or two occasions,
camp rumors declare, the parties who "went out for
wool came In shorn." Certain It is tbat the fame of tbe
redoubtable Sergeant spread throughout our llDes, and
blfbly colored stories of his exploits were narrated
around tbe caup fires of the Union army.
But a few weeks ago be came to tbe Wells House, one
morning beiore sunrise, and nerloualy threatened tbe
capture of a "safeguard.'' This witbln half range of
three Union forts, and said to be witbln Hinie range of
General Meade's headquarters.

surprised no one. Private Isaac t?. Noble, Com

conduct him to his regiment. Waterbury probably ex
pected directions instead ot an eeoort. His sltuatioa was

Mien tbe President shall Immediately order a draft for
