Seventy-five dollars reward. --Will be paid for the apprehension and delivery to Clopton & Lyne, of Richmond, of the boy Washington and woman Harriet, who are confidently supposed to be lurking about Richmond.--The boy was arrested in Richmond some three weeks ago, and made his escape from his guard after reaching Petersburg. The woman Harriet Harriet was seen about Rocketts in the month of June. Washington has been run away six months, and most of the time in the army about Richmond. He is about nineteen years old; rather low in stature; of stout, strong form; very black; stutters quite badly, and in speaking is constantly kicking out one foot or the other in a restless manner. His under lip hangs considerably. He probably pretends to be free. Harriett is the mother of Washington, and is about forty years old. She was hired in the West Point Hospital at the time that place fell into the hands of the Yankees, but probably made her escape to Richmond with our soldiers.
Twenty dollars reward. --Ranaway on Saturday, August 30th, my boy Charles. He is between forty and forty-five years of age, dark mulatto, heavy set, about 160 pounds weight, five feet nine or ten inches high, and has a broken nose, which turns up, appearing somewhat like a bull dog's. He had on when he left gray pants, check shirt, a pair of Government-made shoes, and a wool hat. He is supposed to be down about Rocketts. The above reward will be paid for his delivery in jail, so that I can get him. Lieut. Clinton Perry. se 2--1m* Co. E. 1st Texas Reg't.
Gathering up arms. --Mr. G. M. Young has been appointed by the Secretary of War agent to visit all of the houses in the city of Richmond, for the purpose collecting all arms and accoutrements that may have been left, at any time, by soldiers and others, and which can be made of use to the Confederate States in the present war. He has already succeeded in collecting together four or five thousand stand of arms, and a proportionate quantity of accoutrements. Yesterday, to enforce his authority in the direction of Rocketts old field, a guard was detailed by Capt. Alexander, A. P. M., to accompany Mr. Young, who succeeded in gathering up a considerable number of muskets, rides, &c., which otherwise would never have been heard of. The call of our Generals in Tennessee and Kentucky for weapons to put in the hands of the volunteers who are constantly flocking to their standards may explain the anxiety for arms.
