Five hundred dollars reward.

--Ran away from the Richmond Arsenal, where he was hired, about the 20th of July, my negro man, Peter miles, sometimes called Peter Redd. He is twenty-two or twenty-three years of age, five feet eight or nine inches high, gingerbread color, rather a long face, nose rather long and flat, and carries himself very erect. When he left the arsenal he wore a grey jacket and cap. He is no doubt making an effort to pass through lines. I will give the above reward if caught beyond the limits of the city, or two hundred and fifty dollars if caught within the corporate limits and secured in any jail so that I get him.
