George Pollock, Esq. of Newbern, lately sent to his plantation on Trent 
river, in Jones county, thirty four full blooded Melino sheep, which cost 
him six thousand dollars.


The Star  12 Oct., 1809

From the Subscriber on the 10th day of September, a bright mulatto fellow 
by the name of Ralph.
He is about 35 years old--a number of his fore teeth are missing---
several before, so as to disqualify him from chawing any thing hard. He 
has a very dawn look. He had on when he left me cotton clothes, except 
his coat, which was cotton cambrick, of a brown colour, made in the 
present fashion.
The coat had a pocket on the inside of the left lappell.---- He is about 
five feet, eight or ten inches high--thick built. I expect he will 
attempt to pass for a free man, and, perhaps, aim for Richmond, in 
Virginia, where he was raised. He left his former master, whose name was 
Jeffery,(lived in South Carolina,) and passed for a free man about 
fifteen months in the counties of Duplin, Bladen, and Jones, where he was 
at length taken up and committed to Wilmington jail, where his master got 
him. Any person who will confine said Negro in any Jail in this state so 
I get him again, shall receive a reward of ten dollars, and if delivered 
to me in Wadesborough, 25 dollars.
Wadesborough, Sept. 25, 1809. 49----3 m.

     All assistants who accept their appointment willgive immediate 
notice thereof to the Marshal, and indicate the place to which their 
commissions shall be forwarded by mail. A copy of the Act of Congress on 
the subject of the census, and a letter of instruction prescribing the 
mode in which the duty is to be performed, will accompany each 
Commission. Unless the notice required is communicated in a reasonable 
time, the Marshal will proceed to appoint Assistants in the room of those
