Runaway-seven Hundred and fifty Dollars reward.

--Left home on Saturday last, my Negro Man, Robert Lewis. He was for two years porter at the Exchange Hotel, and afterwards at the American. He took with him his wife, Catharine, a delicate negro, gingerbread color, medium size, and about twenty-four years old. Robert is supposed to be making his way to the Yankees, as he has been with the army for the last six months. He is black; thick lips and how-legged; about thirty-three years of age. I will give a reward of seven hundred and fifty dollars for him if delivered to me, or five hundred dollars if secured so that Loan get him.
