To the people of the county of Henrico.--fellow-citizens: Many gentlemen, some from each political party, have called on me in person, and some have addressed me through the newspapers, requesting me to become a candidate for the Convention. A seat in the Convention is not to be declined, because it will be one involving great responsibility; and, in times like the present, no Virginian is at liberty to decline any responsibility which the people may choose to impose upon him. For the same reasons, it is to be assumed, with great diffidence, I had, therefore, made up my mind to make no public response to these applications, although deeply grateful for the kindness and confidence which they evince, and to leave the matter wholly to the people to dispose of as they pleased. But in the last four days I have been urged to make such a response, upon the ground that it is required by a just respect to those who have evinced this confidence, and therefore I beg leave to say, tha
Runaways. $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. Washington is about five feet 8 or 9 inches high, very black, about twenty years old, and has very white teeth, and smiles very pleasantly when spoken to. 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, me at my house, or if he is secured in jail so that I can get him. L. S. Courtney [ja 26--1w*]

I am unwillinHenrico county who have generously pledged me their cordial support as a candidate for the Convention, and impelled by a sense of duty, for reasons which I trust will be properly appreciated, I now retire from the canvass. I am unwilling to be to any extent instrumental in dividing the votes of those who believe in the necessity of the prompt and decisive action of Virginia in the present crisis, when such division may tend to the election of some one not sufficiently alive to the imminence of the danger by which we are surrounded. I trust the citizens of HenriHenrico will concentrate their entire vote on some worthy citizen of their own county, who will not pursue that dilly-dally policy, so well calculated to deluge the fair plains of the South in the blood of civil strife. Above all things, do not send to the Convention one who believes that under Black Republican rule we shall be "in no
Death of Mr. Taylor. --John O. Taylor, Esq., who was shot by Joseph Bernard, in Henrico county, over two weeks ago, died on Sunday night, about 10 o'clock. Mr. Taylor retained his consciousness to the last, and his sufferings, during a period of seventeen days, were most intense. An inquest and postmortem examination were held yesterday, but we have not heard-the result. The prisoner, Bernard, received the intelligence of Mr. T's death with composure. His examination will probably take place at the County Court-House, on Wednesday.
