Ranaway.

--From the U. S. lot, Bacon's Quarter Branch, about the 1st of February, two negro men, named Delaware and Ben.

Delaware was hired from P M Tabb & Son, and belongs to Mrs Jno Mutter, of Hanover county, and was hired last year to Mr George Turner. He is a sort of bricklayer, and is probably doing job work about the city. He is about 5 feet 7 or 8 inches high, copper colored, and about 25 years of age.

Ben was hired from W S Phillips, and belongs to King Graves, of Chesterfield county. He is black, about 5 feet 9 or 10 inches high, and about 24 years old. I understand he is a kind of huckster around the markets and the city, which occupation he may now be engaged in.

A liberal reward will be paid for the delivery of the above named negroes to me, or confined in any jail in the city, so that they can be procured.

W. S Wood,
Major and Q M Army Transportation,
Bacon's Quarter Branch, Richmond. mh 7--ts
