To the Voters of Henrico. Since the passage of the Bill providing for the call of a Convention of the people of Virginia, I have been approached by many of you with the inquiry whether I would consent to serve in that body as the delegate from this county; and only yesterday a communication to the same effect, asking an expression of my views upon the questions which will engage its deliberations, appeared in the public prints, emanating, as I am informed from sources entitled to my most s upon this momentous question. How far events may modify them, it is impossible now to foresee. But they are expressed to you as I entertain them.

I shall endeavor so to guide my course as to preserve and restore the Union, if possible; but, at all hazards, to protect and defend Virginia. Very respectfully, Your fellow-citizen, J. B. Young.

$20 reward --I will give $20 reward for the return of my Negro man, "Washington," who left my house, in the lower part of Henrico county, on the morning of the 17th inst., without leave or provocation.

He will probably have a forged pass in his possession, as he can read and write. I will give the above reward for his return to me at my house, or if he is secured in jail so that I can get him.
