Twenty five dollars Reward.

--Ranaway from Mr. Nathaniel August, at Ashland Hanover county, about three weeks ago, a Negro Woman named Martha, about 45 years old, of gingerbread color, flat face, rather jimberjawed, bad teeth, of ordinary size, and remarkably shrewd. She was raised by old Mr. Norment, of Hanover, and may be in that vicinity; but she is most likely in Richmond, passing herself off as a free negro washer and ironer. We will give $20 and the lawful fee ($5) for her delivery to us in Richmond.

Geo. Watt & Co.

N. B.--A good House Servant Girl for hire.
