Stop the Runaways.--one thousand dollars reward.

--Ran off from the subscribers, on the night of the 29th instant, our negro men, Dick and Cornelius.

Dick is twenty-eight years of age; dark copper color; five feet nine or ten inches-high; and has a moustache and goatee. He had on when he left-a gray sack coat and pants, and a black slouch hat.--He is sprightly in conversation.

Cornelius is twenty-five years old; complexion dark; five feet eleven inches high; and had on when he left a pair of gray pants and light-colored wool hat. His shoes were old, and each had a carton. He speaks quickly when spoken to.

It is supposed that these negroes are making their way to the Yankees. We will pay the above reward for the apprehension and delivery of the said negroes to us in Richmond, or five hundred dollars for either.
