Fifty dollars reward.

--A young negro man, named John Chisman, who came to Richmond from Williamsburg some time last spring, and who has been hired about the city until recently, has disappeared. Fifty dollars reward will be paid by Messrs. Blair & Chamberlayne, on Main street, if the negro shall be delivered to them or secured in jail in Richmond to their order. The man is about 22 years old, black, about 5 feet 7 or 8 inches tall, and quite likely. Mr. Parkes Slater, south side of Broad street, between 4th and 5th can give information as to the acquaintance of the man amongst his own color, &c.
