Five hundred dollars Reward.

--Ran away from my residence, the Carlton House, Sidney, the slave of Major J. J. Parham, of Tennessee. He has been in my service since last January. Last year he was hired as an officer's servant in the Western army. This boy is a bright mulatto, of rather spare built, about twenty years of age; five feet ten or eleven inches high, without beard. When spoken to, he usually puts on a stupid air, dropping his eyelids and jaw, and pouting his lips. He pretends to a slouching gait, although brisk enough when he chooses. He is a good hostler and fair cook. When last seen at home, at 6 o'clock P. M., Monday, the 11th instant, he had on a grey cassimere sack coat, blue pantaloons, a drab felt hat, and filthy cloth, those much worn. Is supposed to have taken with him a heavy woolen drab overstock. The above reward will be paid on his delivery to me in person.
