--From the subscriber near Wilmington, Fluvanna county.

three Slaves.

Jesse — A mulatto man, about 40 years old 5½ feet high; has a scar towards the lower part of his back from cupping; had on a very good brown wool hat, a grey frock or sack coat, and grey cotton pants; talks smart.

Fleming — A brown negro, very high forehead, about 5 feet high; 20 years old; had on a pair of boots with iron plates on the heels; is quick spoken and somewhat pop-eyed, and under lip inclined to curl.

John — A dark brown boy, about 16 years old, full 5 feet high; had on a sheep's grey sack coat black satinet pants, and light-colored summer hat.

I am of the opinion they were decoyed from home by some one under the promise of freedom, but who will try to sell them in Richmond, or run them South. I will give a reward of Ten Dollars each, if taken in the State, or twenty-five Dollars each, if taken out of the State, and confined in jail so that I can recover them.
