A caution against his kinsman, too.

FIVE DOLLARS REWARD.
RANAWAY from the subscriber on the 20th inst., a bound Mulatto Boy by the name of JOHN TERRY. Said boy is about 14 years of age, and is supposed to be lurking about the neighborhood of a Mr. Council in Bladen county. I will give the above reward of Five Dollars for the delivery of said boy to me at this place. All persons are hereby notified not to harbor or employ the boy, as I am determined to enforce the law against anyone doing so. And I would further caution the public against a free colored man by the name of Newsom L. Terry, as he is a dangerous fellow, and I have no doubt that John was induced to leave my premises by his advice. J.W. POWERS. Fayetteville, Jan. 24, 1851.
