very thick lips; eyes deep sunk in his head; forehead
very square ; tolerably loud voice ; has lost one or two of
bis upper front teeth ; and has a very dark spot on his
jaw, supposed to be a mark.
Harry is a Carpenter by trade, and nas oeen in tne
employment of a Railroad Company, in whose service he
was when he runaway. He is well known along the line
of the Road. It is supposed that he has obtained, or will
endeavor to obtain, free papers from a free colored man

and assume his name, in order te make his way to a free
The above negro was once the property of Mrs. Co
page, o Edgecomb county ; afterwards he fell into the
bands of AsicI Farmer, from whom he was purchased by
Mr. Barnes, of said county, from whom I purchased him
about six years ago. He will be certain to alter his name ;
probablyto call himself Harry Copage, Fanner, or Barnes.
He was last heard from on the 1 1th September, on the
Newbern Road, about a mile and a half from Wilmington,
enquiring the way to the Sound.
I will give the above reward to any person who will

Captains of vessels are cautioned against taking the
