--Ran away on Saturday, the 3d inst, from the employment of Dr. John B. Eastham
, of Louisa county
, a Negro man, named Ralph, belonging to the estate of Jesse Perkins
Ralph is about twenty-two years of age, black, about five feet five inches high; one of his front teeth is out, and the rest are very broad and white.
No peculiar mark about him is remembered, but we think he has a scar between his forefinger and thumb on one of his hands — can't say which.
He, it is said, can write a good hand, and is probably making his way to a free State.--The above reward will be paid for his apprehension in the State
and delivery to us, or being placed in a jail so that we get him; or, if taken out of the State
and delivered to us, or placed in a jail in this State, so that we get him, a reward of $100 will be paid.
