RANAWAYtVom the Sub
scriber, on Sunday night, the
12lh of March last, a negro wo
man, named POLLY, about 28
years old, nearly five feet high,
yellow complexion, spare made, has v
mild look and genteel appearance, . (for
a negro,) when well dressed; she is an
expert hand at roguery, and is well cal
culated to deceive unless tightly and
closely examined. She was seduced a
vay by a black free negro. Carter Neiv
som by name, a shoemaker by trade,
who is about 30 years of age, 5 feet 6 or
8 inches high, thick set, has a pleasant
countenance and very white teeth,
which he shews very much when speak
ing or laughing: he is strongly suspqet
ed of being a runaway slave. In my
former advertisement, I stated that from
threats which the wench made prior to
her elopement, they would, by chang
ing their names,, and getting forged free
papers, endeavor to make their escape
to some free state: since that time, they
have been lurking about Halifax town,
in the vicinity of which, they probably
are at this time. All persons are for -warned
from harboring or carrying off
said negro under the penalty of the law.
The above reward, With all reasonable
charges, will be paid for securing said
woman in any jail, so hat I get her
again, or for her delivery to me.

Twenty-five Dollars Uavnrd.
I WILL give the above re
ward of twentv-five dollars, for
apprehending and securing in
jail, or otherwise, negro Isaac,
lato. so that I get him tigain; and will
pay ajl necessary expences if delivered
to me at my place of residence, in the
county of Edgecombe, about two miles
east of the stage road leading from Tar
borough to Enfield, and about eight
miles from the latter. Isaac is a bright
mulatto; sprightly, possessing much im
pudence, has a bushy head, and well
proportioned in his form; his size I am
not prepared to say, not .having seen
him for near twelve months his age 1
imagine about twenty. This negro, 1
understand, absconded on Monday 14th
inst. from Dr. Landon Clanion, of the
town of Halifax, to whom he was hired
for the present year. It is highly pro
bable, that this boy has obtained a frau
dulent pass, and will endeavor to pass
for a freeman; a circumstance which
goes to support such a conclusion is, I
am informed he went off with a free
man of color, named Napoleon Cabar
rus, who resides in .or about Edenton,
N. C. and that they have been seen to
gether beyond Pollock's ferry, on Roa
noke. Masters of vessels and all others
are hereby cautioned against harboring
or carrying off said negro Issac at their
peril. ELI B. IVIIITAKER,

Gen. Jackson. In replv to an
address delivered to him at Fay

Anniversary of our Independence,
the General said
"Your cordial welcome is grate
ful to my feelings. It recals to
my recollection the urbanity and
hospitality which were extended
to me and my troops by the citi
zens of this town and county,
18 J3, while encamped in its vicin
ity, on their n;arch to protect our
southern frontier fromlhe ruthless
savage. Sir, the orderly conduct
of the brave men I had the happi
ness then to command, was hon
orable to them, to me, and to their
country. Those high-minded
men yliom patriotism alone had
led to the tented field, to defend
their country and their country's
rights, could not trespass on, or
infringe the rights and privileges

greeably to their own icill. as ex
pressed by the voice of majority
these important rights, th ey ought
to be left to the' dictates of their
pwn unbiassed judgments. Act
ing, sir, in accordance to these
fundamental principles of our go
vernment, and having laid it down
as a rule from yvhich I have never
departed, "never to seek,' nor de
cline office when freely offered by
the people," I cannot interfere-in
any manner whatever, in that con
test, while either before the peo

course is, therefore, truly gratify
ing, and particularly so, as my
conduct on that occasion was dic
tated by my best judgment.
For the kind solicitude you have
expressed for my promotion in the
estimation of my fellow-citizens, I
tender you my sincere thanks.
