One hundred dollars Reward.

--Ranaway, on Wednesday evening last, from the residence of Mrs. Hups, on 3d, near Canal street, servant woman Maria and her son, a likely mulatto boy of 6 or 7 years old. Maria is about 35 or 36 years of age, of a ginger bread color, medium size, rather an intelligent, sprightly countenance, but passionate, and talks rather roughly when excited. Her son is a pretty bright mulatto, I think, a little cross eyed. Maria took with her all her clothes and several pieces belonging to Mrs. Epps. From this fact, and some threats made by her it is likely she is endeavoring to make her way to the enemy, down towards King William county. She is from Carolina county, and may be going up to that section.

I apprehended in the city limits a reward of will be paid; if beyond in either case she and her son be delivered to Mr. Hobbet Lumphin near 5th and Franklin streets, Richmond Va.
