Thirty Dollars reward. Ranaway, on the 10th of last month, from the subscriber, living near Natchez, a negro man named, JIM, five feet nine or ten inches high, about 23 or 24 years of age, stout made, very black visage and bushy hair, speaks with a whining or cautious tone of voice, his left arm a little stiff at the elbow, from being nearly broke, had on an old dark round-bout-jacket, bound with yellow binding, osnatbrigs [oznaburgs] shirt and trowsers, and an old hat, had a small bundle in a handkerchief of other summer clothes. It is supposed he is either in the upper settlements or taken the trace to Tennessee—Twenty Dollars will be given if taken in the settlements or the above reward if taken out of the settlements, with all reasonable expenses when brought home or secured in goal, so that I get him again. JOHN SMITH. The Editor of the Tennessee Gazette is requested to insert the above advertisement three weeks and forward his account.
