From the Mon., Dec. 23, 1861 issue

—Ranaway from the subscriber, on the 3d inst., my slave woman PARTHENA. Had on a dark brown and white calico dress. She is of a ginger-bread color; medium size; the right fore-finger shortened and crooked, from a whitlow. I think she is harbored somewhere in or near Duvall's addition. For her delivery to me I will pay $10.
