TWO HUNDRED POUNDS REWARD.

RUN away about 7 years ago, a very likely mustee boy named JOE, then about 14 years old, brought up to the goldsmith's business; he was short and chubbed, has had the small pox, but no very visible marks; he has a round head, broad foreteeth, the white of his eyes somewhat yellow, very sensible and artful, and may perhaps pass himself for a free fellow; he has no particular marks about him as can be remembered, except on his back or nearer the shoulder, where he was stabbed by a negro. The above reward of Two Hundred Pounds South-Carolina money, will be paid on delivery of him to
JACOB VALK.
