Runaway--$30 reward.

--Ranaway from the subscriber, near Wilmington, Va., on the 30th of September last, Jesse, Fleming and John.

Jesse was raised by John Boatwright, deceased near Mount Zion Church. Buckingham county, is a copper-colored mulatto, with woolly hair, good teeth, and about 40 years old; 5 feet 6 inches high; wore a good brown wool hat and gray clothes.

Fleming is 2 years old; about 5 feet high; brown complexion; high forehead; under lip curled; had a variety of clothing and a pair of boots with iron-plated heel. Both of the above are very smart.

John is 17 years old; full 5 feet high; dark brown complexion; wore a sheep's-gray coat and black satinet pants. Not very smart. All wore long hair.

The above reward will be given for their delivery to me, or security in jail so that I get them again, or $10 for either.
