A young lady in my family, by using two papers, I have rea son to believe, is effectually cured of an alarm ing Pulmonic Complaint, which in all its symp toms gave evidence of immediate consumption.

Un..» wcic biuirn uy a uiuu w uu 5cciu» w ui.cn a stranger in this part of the country. When seen in possession of the Slave and of the Mare, he was inquiring his way to Stafford Court House. He is described to me as a person be tween fifty and sixty years of age, with re markably white hair; his stature stout and well set. He wore a brownish colored stuff cloak. The negro is between twenty-five and thirty years of age, as well as is remembered; stout in his person, and about five feet ten or eleven in ches high: has a drawling manner of talking, and appears to be much less sagacious than fie really is. Ilis name is Jack. His dress was a blue cloth cap, a grey great coat, and his under j clothing drab cloth. The Mare is a tine large sorrel, without any j spot of white about her, unless perhaps there j may be some few white hairs in the centre of the forehead, not covering more than the size of a four-pence-halfpenny. She is, as well as is recollected, going on seven years of age; is re I markably long in her body; has a long tail, and i it is remarkable where it joins the rump. There may be discerned in the film of one of her eyes an incision which was made a year or two ago to cure the hooks. One Hundred Dollars Reward will be given for therecovery of the above Slave and Mare, or in j the proportion of four and two for tin? recovery of either. JNO. TAYLOE LOMAX.
