RAN AWAY from the subscriber, living in Petersburg, Hardy county, Va. On Saturday the 3d inst. a bright mulatto man called
about 45 years old, tolerably well made, five feet 10 or 11 inches high, with high cheek bones. The only particular mark that is recollected, is that of very high sharp wrist bones and is of great strength in those joints — he has a full suit (?) of hair and keeps it pretty well combed up. He took with him a fur Hat, nearly new, two Coats, one a drab frock and the other a snuff colored close coat—a vest of white ground and dark spots — two pair of pantaloons, one pair of green and one pair of white Chord — a pair of calf skin shoes of his own make, and will probably seek employment in that line of business. He may have changed his clothing.

THE ABOVE REWARD of $50 will be given if taken out of the State of Virginia, $20 if taken in the State, and $10 if caught in Hardy County, Va. and all reasonable expenses paid if brought home. The reward to be paid on the delivery of said slave.


N. B. On his apprehension and confinement, a note informing the subscriber of the same will be received at Looney's creek Post Office, Hardy co. Va. and attended to immediately. J. G.
