--Left my residence on Monday morning, about 6 o'clock, my negro boy Jesse.
He is about 14 years of age, dark brown color, rather spare make, and grum appearance.
He had on when he left a blue shaggy overcoat.
He has doubtless left with some military company, on is attempting to go to the Yankees east of Richmond.
The above reward will be paid on his delivery to me, 203 Main st, Richmond.
