One hundred dollars reward.

--I will pay one hundred dollars reward for the apprehension and delivery to me, or to Messrs P. M. Tabb & Son, of my slave Lucy Ann — generally called Lucy — who absconded from my house, corner of Clay and 6th streets, some two months since. She is about twelve or fourteen years old, very thin and black, stutters sometimes in talking, and had on when she left a yellowish cotton dress and an old shawl, which she wore ever her head, in lion of a bonnet. She has been seen in the streets several times since she left my house, and is doubtless lurking somewhere about the city. I had reason to believe that she was at first harbored by some person or persons residing north of Leigh street and west of sixth street but she has probably changed her quarters, as she was last seen coming down Cary street, near 5th street, with a tin bucket. If any person is employing her in ignorance of her being a runaway slave it will be well for him to give immediate information.
