$50 reward.

--I offer the above for my man Riley, if arrested and secured so that I can get him. He left my farm, in the lower part of Henrico, more than six month ago. He is about 50 years of age; of dark color; has a scar on the back of his neck; teeth very good; stammers badly, and is about 5 feet 10 inches high.--He has been engaged in carrying charcoal to Richmond for about 25 years. He is a very shrewd negro, and probably is lurking about the camps, near Richmond, under an assumed name, with a pass, perhaps representing himself to be a free man.

Also--$25 reward for my man Washington, who left me about a week ago. He is a mulatto, nearly 6 feet high, about 40 years old, and a little bald. He has a wife at Mr. Jno. Gathright's in this county. Address me, Richmond, Va., care of Wm. H. Pleasants.
