Absconded

from the service of the city, on 30th June last, a negro man named Addison. Said negro is about 30 years old; about six feet high; black, rough skin; walks badly; very coarse and somewhat hoarse voice.

Also, on the 13th July, a negro boy named Jackson, about 18 or 19 years old; wooly hair; dark brown skin; some blotches about the face; stoops forward when walking, and speaks quick when spoken to. The said negroes were hired of Mr. Thos. M. Jones, of Richmond.

I will give the usual reward for their apprehension and delivery to me, or confinement in Messrs. Johns & Slater's jail, so that I can get them again.

R. H. Higgins,

au 13--ts Overseer City Hands.
