Fifty Dollars Reward.

Ran AWAY from the subscriber living near Frost Town, Allegany county, Md. on Saturday the 4th inst. a dark Mulatto Negro man named
SAM,
about thirty years of age, nearly six feet high, tolerably stout frame, though not fleshy. His clothing cannot be described, as he took with him a variety of clothing. One of his middle fingers has been cut off just above the nail, but not recollected from which hand. It is supposed his wife a free woman is with him. She left Cumberland two weeks before Sam, for the purpose, she said, of visiting her mother, who lives near Bedford, Pa. His wife is a small woman, about 30 years of age, much darker than Sam, and very much pock marked.

I will give the above reward if he is taken & secured in any Jail that I get him or will pay any reasonable charges in addition to the reward if placed in the Jail of this county.

May 13, 1833 AND'W BRUCE.
