Twenty-five dollars reward.

--Ranaway, on the night of the 6th ult., my man Goodwyn. He is 35 years old, black, about 5 feet 9 ½ inches high, teeth much decayed, ears small and slightly deformed, and I think he has a small scar on his forehead; is slightly ruptured, and wears a truss; has no marks of the lash; is very straight, and well proportioned, and moves and speaks quickly, and, when spoken to, looks you very intently in the face. He is a good blacksmith, a pretty good house servant, and a good hand with horses. I will give the above reward of twenty-five dollars for his delivery to me, in the county of Brunswick, or twenty dollars if secured in jail so that I get him again. James Birdsong.
