RAN A WAY from the Sub-

f i'X 12lh of March last, a negro wo-
nian named POLLY, about 28
s22ye3rs old, nearly live feet high,
yellow complexion, spare made, has ?
mild look arid genteel appearance, (for
a negro,) when well dressed; she is an
expert hand at roguery, and is well cal
ctilated to deceive unless tightly and
closely examined. She was seduced a
way by a black free negro, Carter New
born, by name, a shoemaker by trade,
H'ho is about 30 years of age, 5 feet C or
$ inches high, thick set, has a pleasant
countenance and very white teeth,
which he shews very much wlien speak
ing or laughing: he is strongly suspect
ed of being a runaway slave. In my
former advertisement, 1 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 vicinily of which, they probably
are at this time. All persons are for-
warned from h.irhnrinrr or carrvinrr off
- - j n
said negro under the penalty of the law.
The above reward, with all reasonable
' barges, will be paid for securing said
woman in any jail, so that I get her
-'gain, or for her delivery to me.
