Seventy Dollars reward.

--Ran away from the Third Section of the James River and Kanawha canal, about the middle of July last, a bright mulatto man, named William. He has a bushy head of hair, a smiling countenance and polite manners; is about twenty-four years old. and five feet ten or eleven inches in height. He belongs to the estate of Dr. J. L. Trent, deceased, of Cumberland, and may have gone to that county or to Richmond, where he has relations, or made his way to some military station, as he was last year in the service of General Longstreet, and acquired a fondness for camp life. He had some military clothing with him. He has a rupture, which may serve more readily to identify him.

The above reward, and reasonable expenses will be paid for his delivery at the office of the James River and Kanawha Company in Richmond; at the plantation of J. Robertson, seven miles below Lynchburg; to the undersigned, or any agent of the Company; or half the sum for such information as may lead to his recovery.

A. Michael,
Superintendent Third Section
James River and Kanawha Canal. se 27--6t
