Twenty-five dollars reward

--Will be paid for the arrest and confinement in jail, so that I can get her, of my negro woman Cella She left me in Manchester, Monday, March 16, 1863, about 2 o'clock in the afternoon, and is believed to be in or near Manchester or the city of Richmond. Celia is about 30 years old, but looks older; is a little under the medium height; very stoutly made; of a ginger-bread color; has thick but remarkably narrow eyebrows; looks somewhat grum, and talks rapidly. She had on when she left a hour-made linsey dress; a gay-colored, double blanket shawl, and a quilted hood. She carried a bundle of clothes with her. Address Joe Wells, Manchester, Va, or the subscriber.

Chas B Tress,
Richmond city. mh 18--4t*
