One hundred Dollars Reward. --Ranaway, on the 25th of August, two Negro men, named John and Charles. John is twenty-four years old; black; has a full head of hair: is 6 feet 1 inch high: will weigh about 200 pounds; had on when he left a soft black hat, drab coat and blue cotton pants. Charles, his brother, is 20 years old; black; has a full head of hair: is 5 feet 10 or 11 inches high; weighs about 155 or 170 pounds. He also had on a soft black hat, drab coat and blue pants. I purchased them of W. C. Vanmeter, who lives near Moorefield. Va. I think it likely they will try and get back there.--They came to Richmond by railroad from Strasburg. I will give the above reward for them, or fifty Dollars for either, delivered to Hector Davis, Richmond. John D. Ragland. au 28--2w*
