Twenty-five dollars reward.

--Ran away on the 6th day of July, inst., my black smith, James Patterson. He is about five feet eight inches high, with a large mouth, very thick lips, very broad, flat nose, and uses the hammer when at work with his left hand. I purchased him at Louisa Court-House in February, 1861, before which time he had been hired by Mr. James H. Harding, near the Fairfield Race-Course, and at one time by Messrs. Clark & Hatcher, of Richmond. He has a wife at Mr. John Thomas's, Henrico county, near the tavern of Wm. Chiles, Esq., on the Chickahominy river, about whose premises he may be lurking; or he may have gone to Richmond, where he will attempt to obtain employment. I will give the above reward for his delivery to me or Mr. Francis T. Isbell, Richmond.

M. A. Hope.
