Catch the Runaway.--$20 reward.

--Ranaway from my farm, on the Brook Turnpike, four miles from Richmond, on yesterday morning, my man Matthew. He is about 5 feet 8 inches high; rather thick set; has a brown skin; is some-what hollow-jawed; about 40 years of age; has a dull, sleepy look out of his eyes; had on blue cotton pantaloons, brown round-jacket, and an old wool hat. He was raised in King George county, and may try to cross our lines in that direction.--Pickets, officers and citizens are hereby requested to arrest him. Achilles D. Johnson.
