Five hundred dollars reward.
--Ran away from my residence, the Carlton House
, Sidney, the slave of Major J. J. Parham
, of Tennessee
He has been in my service since last January.
Last year he was hired as an officer's servant in the Western army.
This boy is a brought mulatto, of rather spare build, about twenty years of age; five feet ten or eleven inches high, without beard.
When spoken to, be usually puts on a stupid air, dropping his eyelids and jaw, and pouting his lips.
He pretends to a slouching although brisk enough when he chooses.
He is a good hostler and fair cook.
When last seen at home, at 6 o'clock P M., Sunday, the 11th instant, he had on a grey cassimere sack coat
, blue pantaloons, a drab felt hat, and army cloth shoes, much worn.
Is supposed to have taken with him a heavy woolen drab oversack.
The above reward will be paid on his delivery to me in person.
