100 Dollars Reward. Ranaway from the subscriber in May last, a negro boy, named ELIJAH. Elijah is fond of dress, polite and plausible in his address, very conceited, smiles when spoken to, his complexion black, a little tinged with yellow, round face and full cheeks; when he absconded, had on a blue broad cloth coat, which he kept nicely clean by brushing; is a good cook, and probably may have engaged as a steward on board of some steamboat or sea vessel. He is about 25 years of age, reads and writes indifferently, and is about 5 feet 7 or 8 inches in height, short neck and not very fleshy, square and chunky in his frame. It is supposed he went from this place to Orleans. The above reward, and all necessary expences will be paid to any person who will deliver him to the jailor at Natchez. He formerly belonged to the Hon’ble RICHARD STOCKTON. GEORGE WINCHESTER The Louisiana Advertiser is requested to give the above 4 insertions and forward his account to the editor of the Ariel.
