RUNAWAY - $150 REWARD. – Ranaway from the residence of Dr. H. C. Worsham, in Dinwiddie county, in the month of June, my negro boy Jordan, a bright mulatto; about 21 years of age; well grown; rather sullen countenance; bushy head, and has upon his forehead two or three blue spots, and under one of his arm pits a scar, the result of a burn. Said boy was seen in one of the camps around Richmond, and is doubtless still with our army — probably representing himself to be free. As I hardly think him sufficiently intelligent to have passed the lines, I will pay $150 for his delivery to me, or $100 for his apprehension and confinement so that I get him again. Address, or apply to

Howard Hospital, corner 25th and 26th sts.,
Richmond, Va.
