Runaways.--$430. reward.

--Ran away from the subscriber, on Sunday last, four negro men:

Jim Tate, about 45 years old, weighs 185 or 190 pounds, 5 feet 10 or 11 inches high, black, and hair gray.

Mansfield, about 42 years old, weighs about 145 or 150 pounds, 5 feet 7 or 8 inches high, brown skin slightly cock eyed.

William, about 19 years old, black, about 5 feet 7 inches high, and is a blacksmith by trade.

William Lucas, 18 years old, weighs about 130 pounds, black, 5 feet 5 or 6 inches high, jaw teeth very bad.

I will give $100 reward for either of the above negroes, or $600 if the four are caught together and delivered to me in Richmond.

I have no doubt they are all making their way to the Yankees possibly by way of Fredericksburg. They were last seen on Cary street, in this city, and may have obtained passes or hired themselves to persons is the army as free men.
