Notice! Notice!

--Runaways.--A reward of five hundred dollars each will be paid for the apprehension and retention in safe custody till I get them, of the following negroes, who left my form, in Powhatan county, near Five creek, on Wednesday the day of May, 1864:

Boston, a carpenter, about five feet ten inches high, red mulatto skin, with very heavy black beard and moustache.

Haywood, about five feet eight inches high, brown skin, small moustache; has a down look when talked to.

Hurbert, about six feet two inches high; very likely negroes dark marcon complexion; teeth defective and black.

George, about five feet five inches, square built remarkably fine, open countenance quick in movements; came from near Gordonsville, Orange county.

John, about five feet ten inches very likely, very able bodied and stout.

Caesar, about five feet eight nine inches very likely; a light mulatto.

Ellen, wife to Seasar, about five feet two inches; very black; very stout — a regular African. When she is not at her work she is very much given to whistling and singing.

Albert, about five feet eight or nine inches high; very black and stout, and remarkably likely.

Henry, or Patrick Henry, about five feet four or five inches high; very likely maroon color very much disposed to be stout and fat, and has a wife in Richmond.

Scouts and pickets will benefit themselves by keeping a look out for these negroes and all constables, police officers and others are desired to address the undersigned at Flus Creek P. O, Powhatan county, Va, or Mr. Thomas H Lipscomb, Richmond, Va, in the event of their apprehending any one or all of these negroes. Officers of the army and others are notified against hiring negroes corresponding to the above description, as these negroes will doubtless represent themselves as free.

Agent for Col C. H. Therburn my 27--6t*
