The Richmond aud Petersburg, the Dan
ville, the Central Railroad Companies, to
gether with other internal improvement com
vauies in the State, we believe, have pub
lished notices to the public, that they will
m»t receive notes of a less denomination than
five dollars after the 1st of June, either in
the settlement of freight or passenger tare.
Persons having dealings with those compa
nies, that is passengers, and:those having
freight to j>ay, are duly notified that they
will be expected to provide themselves with
the proper amount to pay t r passenger tare
and freight, as the Company cannot be ex
pected to furnish the requisite amount ot
specie for change.—Kick.

The Man Burled Alive In France.
HIS RESCUE AFTER AN ENTOMBMENT OF NINE
TEEN DAYS.
From the Fori* JW**r% Moff •>.
The people of Lyons, and indeed ot France,
have for the last nineteen days been kept in
a state of constant excitement regarding two
men who had literally been buried alixe b\
the falling in of a well at which they had
been working. One died, xvhile the other,
with the K)dv of his dead comrade pressing
upon him, held on with extraordinary forti
tude. supported by provisions which were
let down to him at all times, by gaps formed
bv the transverse beams, which tell in such
a manner as to form a screen over his head.
Front the nature ot the soil, great tears were
formed that all efforts would fail. ^ e find the
following details iu the Lyons Journals ot
the 3d;
A considerable fall of earth again took place
two days ago, in the well ot Dou.e. and it x\a>
for a moment feared that the adit xvas com
pletely tilled up. 1 hanks, hoxvexer, to the
indefatigable zeal ot the workmen, and the
skilful management ot Uapt. Kobinet, the j
mischief was promptly repaired. It is hoped
that the prisoner xvili be released on lliurs- j
day. On Saturday he received a visit from
Marshal de Fasteflane, who, in addition to ,
words of encouragement, brought him a bot
tle of Madeira, which he appeared to receive j
with as much gratitude as satisfaction. On
Sundav evening Oiraud made a substantial
ineal, "composed of a cutlet and some glasses
of Malaga. This regimen is ipiite to his taste
and contributes not a little to make him bear
his sad captixity with patience. We need m*t
mention that his diet is regulated ly the mili
tary surgeon, who visits him several times a
day, and will not allow anything to he given
that can injure his health. Although famil
iarized with the presence of the dead body,
Oiraud does not the less suffer trom it. the
body, which lies on an inclined plane, is
sliding under him, and every day incom
modes him more and more On Sunday the
Drocureur imperial visited Ecully, in order
to obtain information from Oiraud relative to
the circumstances attendant on the catastro
phe, as it is thought that such an event could
not occur without raising serious questions
of responsibility. I he declarations ot^ the
victim necessary for the examination of the
affair were received by Captain llobiuet, who,
having descended some yards into the well,
transmitted the questions to Giraud, and re
ceived his replies. This kind ot interroga
tory continued about a quarter ot an hour.
The poor prisoner appears to have made up
his mind to all the consequences ot his situa
tion. lie will scarcely allow any one to
speak to him of the hopes entertained, or to
point out the probable day of his deliverance,
lie says that lie is aware “that every exertion
is making tor his rtdea.se, and on which he
has such tinu reliance that so long as he
maintains his sticngth and courage, a day
more or less is of little consequence. The
end of the adit is not, it is considered, more
than ninety centimetres trom the place where
Giraud stands. His voice can be distinctly
heard, aud he replies to the questions put to
him.
The interstice through which the wire of
the bell passes, aud through which his tood is
conveyed to him, is not more than about sev
eu inches in diameter. The decomposed body
ofUiraud’s companion having begun to at
tract Hies, it has been found necessary to close
the openiug with something which shall pre
vent their entrance, without intercepting the
air and light winch reach the prisoner through
that orifice. The /Ve.wve, thus announces, the
final success of the efforts made for the delive
ry of the hero of this extraordinary event:—
“lYe hasten to communicate to our readers
a gratifying piece of news which reached us
just as we were going to press, the drama
of KcuIIv is at an end. Giraud was deliver
ed from his subterranean prison at 8 o’clock
yesterday evening, in a most satisfactory
state.** As the well fell in on the 14th wit., j
Giraud had been in his dreadful place of con
finement nineteen days. So great was the
interest excited in high places, that the Em
press* received by order, a telegraphic des
patch every day.

Coal of Wenteri» Virginia.
An interesting and, to the people of this
section, important discovery lately announced
is that of can nel coal near Piedmont, i n the
