a flag of truce to Columbus yesterday,
asking for an exehaage of prisoners,

insulting character of the proposition.
The bearer of the flag acknowledges

prisoners, and the Federals captured
2(i of our men, who were mostly sick.
The gunboats of the enemy were

TIL E want of a cheap proof press
has long been felt by publishers of
country papers and small Job Offices.
The undersigned knowing this from
experience, has invented a press of
this sort (similar to Hoe & Co.'s) and
offers it to the craft as the cheapest
in the market. Instead of a solid
cast-iron cylinder, it is made of sheet
iron and tilled, being a decided im

to the cylinder. The cost of an or
