One hundred dollars reward.

--Ranaway from the subscribers, on the night of the 5th inst, two negro men, named Riley and Dan. Riley is a very bright mulatto, 18 or 19 years old, 5 feet 6 or 8 inches high, and has on his right side a very large scar, the effect of a burn in boyhood; had on when he left a soldier's cap, and either a dark frock coat or gray sack, and carried with him a black oil cloth satchel and red checked counterpane; would pass for a white man in any crowd. He is in all probability making his way back to Kentucky, where he was purchased about a year ago. Dan is black, 24 or 25 years old, 5 feet 3 or 4 inches high, stout built, short hair and short whiskers; had on when he left a new suit of black jeans, and may follow Riley in the direction of Kentucky, or may have induced Riley to follow him to the county of Hanover, where he has a wife — in either case, trying to make their way to the Yankee lines. The above reward will be paid for their arrest and confinement, or $50 will be paid for either of them.
