Stop the Runaway.
Ranaway from the subscriber on the night of the 19th instant, his negro boy Adam. Said negro is about 35, 5 feet 9 or 10 inches high, and weighs about 140 or 150 lbs. The only mark remembers is a scar, I think on the left side of his neck, caused by scrofula when he was young. He is dark complected, and had, when he left, a small patch of whiskers on his chin. He wore away when he left, a dark jeans sack coat and pants of the same material, patched in front with cloth of a different color. He also took with him four white homespun shirts, two of them new, never having been worn, and a checked summer coat a good deal faded, and a pair of black Sunday pants. He wore away a pair of heavy shoes, with iron bands on the heels and soles, and probably has a pair of Sunday shoes. He had a black low crowned hat, and an old every-day one, together with much other clothing not remembered. I will pay fifty dollars reward for his apprehension and confinement in any jail so I can get him. My address ns Greensborough, NC
