i nm t r i . r o
man, namea ruiibi, auuui o
years old, nearly five feet high,
yellow complexion, spare made, has a
mild look and genteel appearance, (for
anero,) when well dressed; she is an
expert hand at roguery, and is well cal
culated to deceive unless tightly and
nosely examined. She was seduced a
ay by a black free negro, Carter New
torn by name, a shoemaker by trade,
ho is about 30 years of age, 5 feet 6 or
S 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 suspect
ed of being a runaway slave. In my
former advertisement, I stated that from

ing their names, and getting forged free
papers', endeavor to make their, escape
