RUN away about a week ago, a negro boy named CHARLES, a taylor by trade; he is short and well made, very black, and about 18 years of age, had on when he went away a shirt and a pair of trowsers. Any body that will deliver him to the Keeper of the Sugar-house, shall receive ONE GUINEA reward, by applying at No. 30 on the Bay.
N.B. He is supposed to be harboured by some taylor in the town; if so, a reward of TEN POUNDS will be given, so that the offender may be prosecuted.
