Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


Recovery of Stolen Goods.
The negroes who ranaway from Mr. GEORGE SHAFER, some ten days ago, stole from their master and mistress Jewelry, wearing apparrel and other articles, amounting in value to more than $300. On Friday or Saturday last officer WILLIAM FREANER recovered nearly all these goods in Pennsylvania, consisting of valuable silk and other dresses, breastpins, ear-rings, finger-rings, bracelets, &.C., and restored them to their owners. These darkeys will doubtless prove a valuable acquisition to society in the North, and will greatly improve its moral tone.
