Fifty Dollars Reward. Runaway from my plantation at Point Coupee, a mulatto man, by the name of BILL, aged about twenty-three years—he is of a dark Indian yellow, with very black straight hair about 5 feet eight inches high, tolerably stout and very round shouldered. Bill is fond of speaking and forward in conversation; he will no doubt attempt to pass himself as a free man, as he has some claim to being free. I purchased him from Mr. JOSHUA COXE. He left my plantation some time in the month of October. I will give for apprehending of said fellow, Fifty dollars, if delivered to me, or twenty-five for apprehending and securing him in any jail so that I get him. SOSTHENE ALLAIN. Point Coupee.
