One thousand dollars reward.

--Ran away from my house on Sunday last my servant girl Rose. She is about 15 years old, a bright mulatto, straight hair, stoops somewhat in walking, ready spoken, and intelligent. She took from the house the night previous sundry articles of ladies' clothing, among them the following: One light blue striped silk dress; one green check silk dress; one dark blue silk dress; one green and red silk dress; one brown merino dress; one all wool light ground mountaine drees; one all wool green mountaine dress; one all wool dark blue do; one all wool pink do; two purple bargee dress; one green and white dress; one white Swiss Moslin do; one tooked cambric do; two pink lawn do; two calico do; two black cloth cloaks, one with cape; one long silk basqueen; one black silk Beauregard; one fine black lace mantilla; several fine cambric skirts; one red merino body, one black mountaine sack; two ladies' bets, together with various kinds of underclothing; also, a pair of gold bracelets, with the initials "L B P" on the inside; one gold chain, and one cameo breastpin.

I have reason to believe that her aim will be to make her escape into the enemy's lines, in company with white persons.

The above reward of one thousand dollars will be paid for her apprehension, together with the delivery of the stolen articles, or three hundred dollars for her delivery to me in Richmond.
