Ten Dollars Reward.
THE subscriber will give above reward to any per-son who will bring to him, or the Warden of the Workhouse, a young negro man, lately bought of Mr. Thomas Fell, Taylor, at which trade he can work a little ; He is commonly called Jack Fell, or Eboe Jack he being of that country ; He is about 5 feet 6 inches high, 17 years old, strait limbed, yellowish complexion, and very remarkable for carrying his head high and looking up ; had on when he went away last month, a brown jacket without sleeves an Osnabrugs shirt, and nankeen breeches but his dress I hear is Changed. There is great reason to believe he is harboured in town, or between town and the Quarter house.—he has been seen on board several vessels. I forewarn all manner of persons not to harbour or em-ploy the said negro: I will give FIFTY POUNDS to any free person and TWENTY POUNDS to any slave, that will inform me of his being harboured on conviction of the offender.—If the fellow will return he shall be for-given.
JAMES HENRY BUTLER .
