Ranaway--one hundred dollars reward.

--Ranaway from me near Mount Terzah, Person county North Carolina on the 18th inst., my negro man Joe about years of age, a dark mulatto, well built, and very likely; six feet high, and weighs 180 pounds rather bushy head of hair, and heavy beard, can read and write, but writes badly. He may attempt to pass for free, or have a pass. Had on, when he left an oznaburg shirt, blue cotton pants, and wood hat — I bought him in Richmond, in September Dickinson Hill & Co., auctioneers. He was brought to Richmond by Thos. Fisher for Jas. of Hardy county, Va., near Moorfields and I think his purpose is to go back. I will give one hundred dollars if taken out of the State and fifty it taken in the State, for his arrest and confinement in jail, so I get him, or for his delivery at Dickinson & Hill's.
