Fifty Dollars Reward.

I will pay a reward of $25 each for the arrest and delivery to me of JOHN AMMONS and WILLIAM PARKER, who broke out of the jail of Robeson county on the night of the 4th inst.

Ammons is a white man about 35 years of age, fair skin, florid complexion, light curly hair, blue eyes, looks down, but on the whole rather good-looking. He is fleshy and heavy built, and about 5 feet 8 or 10 inches high.

Parker is a bright free mulatto, with straight bushy hair; he stands erect and looks up; speaks freely, and has a pleasing expression of countenance. He is about 5 feet 6 or 8 inches high. He is well known about Lower Fayetteville, and as a boat hand on the Cape Fear River. REUBEN KING, Sheriff. Lumberton, Robeson Co., N.C., August 6, 1852.
