Twenty-five dollars reward.

--Will be paid for the return of my boy Henry, or to any one lodging him in a jail so that I get him He ran away on Sunday, August 31st; is a likely boy, of about twenty-five years of age, rather under medium size, (say five feet six or eight inches high,) dark complexion, (not black,) with a bushy head, intelligent, and speaks quick; had on when he left a black coat, light pants, and black felt hat He carried other clothes with him and a cloth hat. I think he is trying to make his way towards Fredericksburg or the lines, or he may pass himself for free, and stop with some of our own forces until he can get off to the Yankees.
