Two Hundred Dollars reward.

--Ran away from the undersigned, on the 25th ultimo, my negro man, William Melton. Said boy is about five feet eight inches high; gingerbread color, with whiskers; about thirty years old; looks downcast when spoken to. Said negro obtained a pass to go to Mr. Sydnor's, in Hanover county, on the above-mentioned day, and has not been heard from since. I will give the above reward if taken within the enemy's line, or one hundred dollars if taken in ours.

John P. Harwood. ja 6--3t*
