Negro Hiring for 1862.

The subscribers have associated themselves together to conduct a

General Agency Business in the city of Richmond, embracing the Hiring out of Negroes, Renting out Houses, Selling Real and Personal Estate, &c.

Their special attention will be given to Hiring out Negroes; and from the long experience which each have had, feel confident that they will be able to procure fair prices and good homes for all negroes entrusted to their care. They solicit a continuance of that liberal patronage heretofore bestowed upon each of them. They have made ample arrangements to have negroes cared for till hired out; and in cases of sickness will give our personal attention.

We earnestly request our friends to send their negroes to us by the 1st of January. Better prices and better homes can be obtained by sending them in early. E. A. J. Clopton,

Ro. B. Lyne.

Office corner of Franklin and Wall streets, opposite Dickerson & Hill, up stairs.
