Look out--$5 reward

--For the safe delivery to my office of a Negro Boy, named George, the property of William Skinner, of Culpeper county, Va. The said Negro is about 18 or 20 years old, and near 5½ feet high, stout built, yellow complexion, bushy hair; has a lazy look, and speaks slow — George was hired last year in Petersburg, to a tobacconist; this year he was hired to J. W. At kinson, Esq., of this city.

The said Boy was shipped, about three or four weeks ago, on the Central Railroad cars to Culpeper Court-House, to wait on Major Skinner.--He was put on the cars with the servants that accompanied Col. Kershaw's or Gregg's regiment. Since that time he has not been seen or heard of. He had in his possession a free passport, which was left for him by Major Skinner; also, a pass to go to the Court-House. Any information concerning him will be thankfully received; and if apprehended and brought safe to my office, I will pay the above reward of Five Dollars. He may be lurking in the city or its environs, as he has been hired out by me for some time.
