y A ltitu ot iMarcli lat, a negro wo-
man, named POLLY, about 2S
EllUyvzv?, old, nearly hvc teet high,
yellow complexion, spare made, has 2
mild look and genteel appearance, (for
:i negro,) when well dressed; she is an
expert hand at roguery, and is well cal
culated to deceive unless tightly and
Jotly examined. She was seduced a
way by a black free negro. Cartel" New
born by name, a shoemaker by trade,
v vho is about 30 years of age, 5 feet G or
c inches hi till, thick set, has a pleasant
ountenance and very white teeth,
which he shews very much when speak
ing or laughing: he is strongly suspect
ed of being a runaway slave. In my
former advertisement, 1 stated that .from
-brcats which the wench made prior to
!icr elopement, they would, by chang
ing their names, and getting forged free
papers, endeavor to make their escape
'o some free state: since that time, they
have been lurking about Halifax town,
the vicinity of which, they probably
3re 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 that I get her
ain, or for her delivery to me.

Suicide. The Ilarrisburg (Pa.)
Intelligencer of Friday week says:
A pedlar, who had been trading
in the neighborhood for several
years, was found dead, on Sunday
last; near the Donegal cross-road,
with a strap round his neck, .and
fastened to a sapling. He had
been gambling, and lost all his
money, which, it is supposed drove
him to desperation and suicide.
A sad warning to beware of the
allurements of this vice. , ,
August 15, 1S26.
Every excess of pleasure is fol
lowed by an equal degree of pain
or languor. The spendthrift
wastes not only his yearly income,
but dips into his future means.
The voluptuary shortens his life,
or brings on disease and infirmity.

letter from Lancaster, N. H. in

with the unfortunate family, re

life, lie was much bruised, but
assisted in finding the bodies of
family which were discovered.
