RAN -AWAY from the subscriber's plantation, on the night of the
28thinstant, my Dark man JACK, who took with him his wife ANICA,
LONDON, and his wife KESIAH, boy FLORESCO, and man ELIAS-- six in
JACK is a stout, well made fellow about 5 feet 11 inches high, and
very black -- his shoulders a little round, walks with his knees rather
close, and has a scar on the top of his feet. ANICA, his wife, is a
small black woman, neat in appearance, and has a mild voice. LONDON has
a yellow complexion, is about 5 feet 8 or 10 inches high, and halts a
little in his walk-- His wife KESIAH, is a stout, fine looking woman,
very black--has a Wen on the back, and a small scar under one of her
eyes. FLORESCO, is the son of KESIAH, and is a fine looking boy, about
18 years of age, tall and slim, a long foot, and very black. Man ELIAS,
is about 5 feet 8 inches high, black complexion ; he sometimes speaks
rather thick ; is stout made and has a wen under one of his ears, the
size of a walnut.
Their Winter Clothes which they took with them, are of White Plains.
I will give a Reward of One Hundred Dollars for JACK--Fifty Dollars
for ANICA, and Twenty-five Dollars each for LONDON, KESIAH, FLORESCO
These Negroes, no doubt, will visit Newbern, and it is likely will
range about Trent, White, Oak, New River, and up Neuse, as far as
General SIMPSON'S, as they have connexions at each of these places.
ANICA and ELIAS have fathers in Newbern, and the father of JACK and
KESIAH, are at Col. EDMUND HATCH'S, in Jones county.
They have been leaders on my plantation, and I think it probable they
will resolute in their endeavors to avoid being taken.--
If, therefore, either of said slaves should be killed in an attempt
to confine them, I will not hold the person using such violence, liable
for any penalty. And, if said negroes are not taken, or do not return
home, they will, in a few days, be legally outlawed.
Masters of vessels and others, are forbid harbouring or carrying away

In this town, on Monday evening last, in the 27th year of his age,
Mr. JOHN SPENCE WEST, of the house of JARVIS WEST,& Co.
Obituary notices have so frequently been used to gratify the
partialities of friends, or mitigate the agonies of grief, that they
are generally viewed as mere panegyric.
From this imputation, the present essay briefly to sketch the
character of the deceased, may justly claim an exemption.--
The truth simply told, will prove his noblest eulogy.
Though cut off, before Providence had granted him the power of
gratifying extensively the generous impulses of his heart, yet all
within his sphere felt the genial effects of his benevolence. As a
merchant, all who dealt with him admired his attention to business, and
were pleased with his courtesy and disposition to accommodate. As a
man; the _ermine purity of his integrity was never polluted even by
suspicion's touch. The flame of purest gratitude, which will ever be
fostered by his surviving relatives, emblazons his worth as a kinsman.
Oh! ask not his merits as a son, lest the agonized bosom of a
bereaved mother burst with their utterance. Who did not delight to hail
him as a friend? What heart could close its avenues to his bland and
cheerful smile? Though pent up in his dark and narrow house, hid from
our view by the cold clod of the volley; yet long, very long, will he
live in pleasing but mournful remembrance.
To his family, the savour of his good name will be a soothing balm;
let them reflect, that it is far more important to live well, than to
live long, and however prone human nature may be to arraign this
mysterious dispensation, yet the Lord hath only taken what he gave, and
who shall say that his mercy hath not snatched him from evil to come.--
On the same day JOSEPH, infant son of Mr. CHARLES STEWART.
This morning, JULIA, infant daughter of Mr. THOMAS M'LIN.

He died with perfect resignation, and even prayed for a release from
the toils of this weary pilgrimage. AMICUS.
