Runaway--$200 reward.

--Runaway from the subscriber, on the morning of the 18th of 1863, my Negro Boy Ben, he is about years of age, of a dark gingerbread complexion, about 5 feet 3 inches in height. He had on when he left a light colored jacket, a pair of blue Yankee pants and a blue hat; and he is trying to make his way his way to the Yankee. I will pay the above reward if delivered to me, or one hundred and fifty dollars if secured in any jail so that I may him. Post Office, Richmond.
