Ranaway.--$50 reward.

--Ranaway, from the jail of Thos Jones, of this place, on Monday, 21st of October, 1861, a Negro Man, named James; dark brown complexion, 21 years old, and nearly six feet high. He had on a dark suit when he left; also, a military overcoat. I expect he will try to pass for a free boy. I will pay the above reward for said boy, if taken out of this city, or $25 if found in it, to be de delivered to me at E. H. Stakes's, Richmond, Va.

J. A. Burdett. de 19--1m*
