fSmZ REWARD WILL BE PAID FOR THE
fSf3 apprehension of C11AKLFS MORRIS alnit
ARLES ALEXANDER, who escaped from the jail of
this county, on the night of the 2'Jd insi., and who was
awaiting trial on charge of kidnapping.
Morris is about 35 years old. five feet seven inches high,
weighs about 140 lbs., hns a sallow complexion, heavy gray
eyes, closely set together, somewhat restless, but full of
meaning, and heavy dropping eyelids. His hair is almost
black, and he wore when last seen a scanty beard, extend
ing low down his neck. His forehead is well developed,
receding towards the top, and his features are strongly
marked. He appears to be very intelligent, writes a good
correct band, is q nick-spoken, has a loud but pleasant voice,
and his frame though not large is active and muscular. His
general appearauce is that of a dirty reckless fellow. His
a'-ms are tattooed with derioea of birds, anchors, female
figures, Ac. and on bis back (whic'i bears evidences of a
recent whipping,) is also tattooed a cross some five inches
long. It is probable he hps led a seafaring life. There is
no likelihood of either of the names above given being the
fugitive's real name.
It is probable Morris has made towards Wilmington, in
this State, or Charleston, S. C. The above reward will be
paid on t'-e apprehension and detention of the fugitive so
that I can get him.

Why is it that E. P. Nash, of Petersburg, con
tinues to Sell so many Pianos?
fftHE AV'SWER IS PLAIN AND TRUTH-
JL ful, as tbllows:
Because, for more than twentv vears he has conscientious
ly avided selling any but the 'BEST INSTRUMENTS!
And the natural result has been, that every one of the
Thousands of Pianos be has sold has had the e ect of sel
ling others, and thus year after year, his sales have increas
ed, until, to meet the demand, he finds it necessary to keep
on hand a stock of from forty to fifty Instruments; but,
suppose for a moment that his Pianos had been of doubtful
quality, can any candid thinking peison fail to see. that the
Eubiic would long since have found it out, and the result
ave been a falling off instead of increase in sales?
