Fifty Dollars reward.

--Ranaway from our farm, in Nelson county, on the 17th of August, a negro woman named Eliza. She is about 23 years old, likely, black, and above the average size. She is originally from North Carolina, was purchased by us in Richmond, and lived with one of us a short time at Madison Court-House. She was apprehended and made her escape from Mr. Thomas Martin's, on the Orange and Alexandria Railroad, near Covesville, Albemarle county, last week, and is doubtless making her way towards Gordonsville or Richmond, or the Yankee lines. $50 will be given for her apprehension and delivery to us, or $30 if secured in jail so that we get her. Address Madison Court-House or Howardsville.
