$25 Reward. Runaway from the subscriber, on Sunday last, the 31st of March, a negro man named HARRY, color black, about six feet high, very stout made—will weigh 180 or 190, or probably near 200 pounds, lisps a little, pretty heavy beard and about 30 years of age; clothing not recollected. He formerly belonged to WM. H. HADEN of Madison county. He may attempt to return to Madison, but circumstances induce the belief that he is lurking about town in order to get on some steam-boat to make his way to a free State. Ten dollars reward and all reasonable expenses will be given for his apprehension and delivery to me, or confinement in any jail so that I get him, if taken in the State, or twenty-five dollars if taken out of the State. JOHN SLATER. Vicksburg.
