RAN away yesterday, from the Sub-
scriber, a stout well made Negro
Man, named DICK; aged about 22 years,
nearly six feet high, remarkably active
and well shaped; speaks the English lan-
gauge very fluent, also the Low Dutch --
sings remarkably well. His color is ve-
ry black, and he has a good set of front
teeth. His dress when he went off, was
a common linen browsers and shirt un-
bleached, short brown jacket, without
sleeves, with a round hat -- It is supposed 
he has changed his dress.

person that will lodge the said Negro in 
any gaol in this state, or return him to
his master, in Albany.
