From Waite's Camp, on the Alabama & Mississippi Rivers Railroad, about the 1st of May, 1862, a negro boy called Jim Holmes. Said boy is about 5 1/'2 feet high, color very black, eyes white, and of rather a bad countenance, weighs about 180 pounds. It is supposed he has gone down the Alabama & Florida Railroad, as he worked there last year.
