--$20 to $50 reward.--Ranaway, on 1st of Feb., my man George; 22 years old; black; round features; weighs about 160 pounds; 5 feet 8 or 10 inches high; erect; a hoarse, quick manner of speech, and may be called good looking. Having been raised by the late Wiley Dickinson, near Barboursville, he has been and will lurk in that region, or may have fallen in with our army in some manner — most likely as a cook — and now on the Peninsula of gone towards the enemy. If found in the army or beyond Culpeper C. H., and delivered in jail not farther then Richmond, so that I get him again, I will give $50; otherwise, I will give the flest sum

S. W. Ficklin.
