Runaway.--one thousand Dollars Reward.

--Ran away, on Friday, December 30, a Negro Boy, about twenty-five years old, named Hampton Johnson. He is about five feet six inches in height; weighs about one hundred and thirty pounds; black; a good many of his jaw teeth are out; and inclined to be delicate. I purchased him about three years ago from William Garnett. His wife lives on Seventeenth street, near Austin's grocery. He can read and write remarkably well. He has been working in my foundry as a mechanic. I will pay one thousand Dollars Reward if taken within the enemy's lines, or Five hundred Dollars if within our lines, and delivered to Hill, Dickinson &Co.

W. B. Cook, Founder,
Eighth street, near Main. ja 14--6t*
