She is about 20 years old; hair long and curly; shows her teeth much when speaking; two front upper teeth much separated; cheek bones high, and rather good looking. She is known to be in possession of free paper, and to have made application to several steamboats for a passage to Chester, Illinois---once by a white man, dressed in gentleman's clothes. Captains of steamboats and ships are particularly cautioned. Twenty-five dollars reward will be given for the apprehension and delivery to the subscriber, if apprehended in the State, or one hundred if apprehended out of it.
