Fifty dollars reward.

--I will pay the above reward for the apprehension and delivery, or confinement in jail, of my man George Rucker, who ranaway in December last and was last heard of at the farm of Mr Morson, in Goochland, where his wife lives. George is well known in Richmond and on the Canal, having been Captain of a freight boat for twenty years. He is about 50 years of age, 5 feet 8 inches high, ginger-broad color, and has remarkably short hair, closely kept.

Clifford Cabell.
