A mulatto man named ARTHUR, absconded from my residence in Nashville, Tennessee, on the 18th inst, about 30 years of age, 5 feet 7 to 10 inches high, stout made, his left leg and foot are enlarged from an attack of fever, round face, wears his hair and whiskers long, has a scar or scars on the front or top of his head under the hair; also a small scar on the left side of his nose near the end; stern countenance, and when spoken to, looks you full in the eye; quite intelligent, more so than the most of colored men. Good house servant, cook, carriage driver, pretty good carpenter and pointer; in short, handy in any mechanism. Fine flow of speech, active and very vicious when intoxicated. Had on when last seen, a white hat, brown jeans roundabout and pantaloons of the same. I will pay 25 dollars if taken within the state, or 100 dollars if taken out of it, and secured so that i can get him
R. P. CURRIN.
