$40 reward.

--Ran away, some time in June last, my Negro men, Sam and Washington. They were seen with some of the Volunteer companies, going in the direction from Richmond to Yorktown.--Washington is quite black, about five feet six inches high, and about twenty-five years old. Sam is a bright mulatto, about the same age and height. I will give $20 for the delivery of either, or $4 for the delivery of both of said Negroes to Jas. M. Taylor & Son, at Richmond, or secured in any jail in the State, so that I can get them.
