Twenty-five dollars Reward. Ranaway from my plantation near Warrenton, on the night of the 29th December last, a Negro Man, named MOSES, yellow complected [sic], 5 feet 8 or 9 inches high, well proportioned, active and intelligent, 24 years old, a tolerable carpenter, plays on the violin, and is said to be a good house servant; he is the man mentioned by Major McNeill, as having accompanied his three negroes that are now advertised. MOSES was brought here but a short time since by B. H. Buckner, from Loudon county, Virginia; as he never manifested any dissatisfaction, but went off without having performed one days labor on the place, it is probable he will attempt to go up the country. Masters of steam boats and others are particularly cautioned against receiving or employing said negro. I will give twenty-five dollars for his apprehension and confinement so that I get him again and all reasonable expenses. R. SMITH. Sylvan Vale.
