Runaway.--three hundred dollars reward.

--Left my premises, near Mitchell's Spring, after eleven o'clock Saturday night, the 18th instant, William, a bright mulatto boy; curly brown hair; brown eyes; good looking; between seventeen and eighteen years of age; about five feet and a half high; well made; rather stern expression of countenance, and usually wears a very light homespun suit — jacket and pants. Formerly belonged to the Mayor of Petersburg, from whom I purchased him about a month ago.--He may be making his way over there to our army, where he has been for a year or so with an officer (a Captain Keely) in the commissary department. I will give the above reward for his arrest and delivery either in Petersburg or Richmond.
