Fifty dollars reward.

--Will be paid for the apprehension of my negro boy, Charles, who left my house on the 13th inst.--Said boy is about 14 years old, badly grown of ginger bread color, looks grum, has on the left joint of his left wrist a large scar, which causes the hand to be a little stiff; has very thick feet. The above reward will be paid for him if caught out of the county, and $25 if caught in the county and his delivery to me or confinement in jail so that I can get him. My residence is three miles from Negrofoot. Hanover county.
