200 dollars reward.--Ran away from the residence of the writer, corner of 7th and Leigh streets, on Monday morning last, a gingerbread-colored boy, named Jim, about 14 years old, very large mouth, very sprightly and lively, and fond of singing comic songs when at leisure. He is very fond of soldiers; and my impression is that he has gone off with some of the local companies around Richmond or Petersburg, which latter place he was raised by a Mr. or Mrs. Piermon, and sold here 17th March last, at Lee & James's , by C C Burton. There are no scars recollected, except whip marks from appearance when he was very young. The above reward will be paid if delivered to Hill, Dickinson & Co, Richmond.
