Fifty dollars reward.

--Ranaway, from my farm in Amelia, about the 25th June, two small mulatto boys, Horace and Aaron, 12 years of age.

Horace is very slender, handsome, and smart, with very bright black eyes and consumptive appearance.

Aaron is a dull, stupid, gingerbread mulatto, with such thick lips that one curls nearly to his chin and the other to his nose.

One of the boys was with me on the Peninsula for some time, and has since been anxious to go to the army again. It is possible, therefore, they may have gone to Drury's Bluff. The above reward will be paid for their delivery to John A. Graves, Amelia C. H., or to Mr. Grady, Cary Street Jail.

jy 25--6t J. Peyton.
