Newark Seminary.
We, the undersigned attended an examination of
the Young Ladies in the Newark Seminary, under
the superintendance of Mrs Cloud, on Tuesday the
31th instant, and were highly pleased with the spe
cimens which the pupils gave of their acquaintance
■with those useful and ornamental branches of lid
ucation in which they had been instructed. Indeed
the examination reflected honor on the Teachers;
it shewed that they had been indefatigable in their
exertions to forward the advancement of their pu
pils in their literary attainments.—We avail pur
selves of this occasion to congratulate the parents
and Guardians of the pupils at this Seminary 'its fri
ends and the publick generally, upon the order and
regularity which prevail in it, and especially the great
proficiency exhibited by the pupils in the difleren'
branches of education. The peculiar healthiness ot
the place, the cheapness of obtaining an education at
the Seminary, the guardianship of the teacheis over
the pupils, together with the rapid progress which
they make render it worthy of 'its full share of pub
•lick patronage.

Were stolen, from the subscriber, living in
Christiana Hundred New Castle Cnunty, (Del ) on
the night of the 15th ult. 2 Horses the one a brown
Ball MARE, about 13 years old. 13 bands high,
veiy much of the English ball breed, dark bvown.
blind of the near eye, lour white feet and legs, bald
nose, a white streak up her lace, and white under
lip. She is a natural trotter, a pleasant good hack,
ney. works well in the plough, was shod all round
and was in good order. The other is a blood bay
with blac main tail and legs, five years old, about
15 and a half hands high, short neck, no white re
collected about him, except some bridle marks, and
a streak across his left ham joints, about one inch
in length. He was ic good order, shod all round,
paces principally, is a clumsey hackney, and very
strong and good to work in almost any way. He is
a little bulky about his ham joints which is, perhaps,
an indication of strength, but may be taken by
strangers as a fault.
The thieves are supposed to belong to a company of
2 men who had purchased of the suberiber, a few
days before, another horse for which they paid filty
two dollars, but of which forty one,on examination,
proved to be counterleit They appeared to be
turned of thirty years of age, one of them had
s snuff colored coat, jean pantalets, calfskin shoes,
fashionable fur hat, about half worn, was about 5
feet, 10 or nineties high, with apparently sandy
hair and whiskers, and passed in the neighborhood
by tbc name of John Tompson. The complexion
and hair of the other is dark, he is about six feet
high, was as well dressed as the other ; his hat had
a rim rather broader than what is termed fashion»
ble. He passed in the neighborhood by the name
of Thomas Damorse. They both appeared to have
tender hands.
It is supposed the horses have been taken to the
forest, as it is thought that they were seen taken
liltough Smyrna, the day after they were stolen.
The above rewaul will be gived for the detection
of the tinves and the return of the horses, or twenty
dollars for the thieves, and ten dollars for each of
the horses, and all reasonable charges paid on the
horses being brought home.
