ROGERS’S VEGETABLE PULMONIC DE TERGENT, JUST received and for sale by jan 29 WILLIAM STABLER. From the Hon. Gideon Lee, Mayor of the City of New York. 11 Few men in the community have a greater contempt for nostrums in general than myself. Patent medicine and catchpenny, with me, have ! been synonymous. I am constrained, however, to relinquish these sentiments as respects Dr. Rogers’s Vegetable Detergent, the effects of which I have recently witnessed. 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. I communicatethis with a view of usefulness, and sincerely hope that such persons as have complaints similar to the above, will make a tri al of the medicine. Gideon Lee.’’ CLOVER SEED.

ON Tuesday morning, between Fredericks burg and my plantation, in (he upper end of Stafford, a NEGRO MAN, and the MARE on which he was riding, both belonging to me, were stolen by a man who seems to have been a stranger in this part of the country. When seen in possession of the Slave and of the Mare, he mas inquiring his way to Stafford Court House. fie 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 he really is. His name is Jack. His dress was a blue cloth cap. a grey great coat, and his under clothing drab cloth. The Mare is a fine large sorrel, without any spot of white about her,"unless perhaps there 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 markably long in her body; lias a long tail, and it is remarkable where it joins the rump. There may be discerned in tho him of one of lier 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 the proportion of four and two for the recovery of either. JNO. TAYLOE LOMAX.
