Ranaway.--ten dollars reward.

--Ranaway from my plantation, in the lower end of Henrico county, about two months since, my negro men Riley, who is between 50 and 55 years of age, 5 feet 10 inches high, and is very black, and stammers when spoken to. He is no doubt well known in the city of Richmond, having been engaged for several years past, in hauling coal to said city. I am disposed to think he is now about the city of Richmond, or town of Manchester; and will give the above reward for his apprehension and delivery to me, on my plantation, or secured so that I get him.
