One Hundred Dollars Reward. Ranaway from the subscriber in the month of February last, a negro man by the name of PERRY, about 23 years of age, 5 feet 9 or 10 inches high, very black complexion, smooth face, has a scar over one of his eyes, occasioned by the kick of a horse—very long feet, with large ankle bones, a little nock-kneed and swaggers a good deal when he walks, turning his toes very much out—took away some coarse cotton clothes, with a blue broad-cloth coat. It is supposed he has been taken off by some steam boat, and is lurking about some of the towns on the Mississippi or Ohio rivers. The above reward will be given, if taken up out of the limits of the State, and Fifty Dollars if within the State and secured in some jail, so that I get him again. B. R. GRAYSON The Louisville Journal, Cincinnati Commercial Daily Advertiser, and Nashville Banner, will publish the above five times, and send their accounts to the Courier Office for payment. Washington, Miss.
