Died. On Sunday morning, Mrs. REBECCA F. NEWELL, wife of Lieut. THOMAS M. NEWELL, of the Navy, aged 23 years. Her friends and acquaintances are invited to attend her funeral, from her residence in G Street, this day at 3 o'clock. At the death of this lovely woman society pauses to behold the hopes, the pride of a husband and family, born up by the roots and dashed to the ground.
Died. At Norfolk, Vir. on Wednesday night last, JAMES JOHNSON, Esq. Collector of that port, and for several years previous to his acceptance of that appointment, a Representative in Congress from the District of Isle of Wight, Surry, Southampton, &c. in Virginia - previously to which service he was for several years a Representative of his county in the Legislature of Virginia. He was distinguished, in public life, for integrity, inflexible purpose, and an uncompromising disposition. His principles were democratic; his elocution was forcible, and sometimes eloquent. In private life, he was distinguished by amenity, friendliness, and sincerity. After a long confinement with the gout, which finally put an end to his life, he has left a family of children to mourn the loss of an affectionate father, which was not long preceded by that of their mother.
Died. On Saturday the 3d instant, at Locust Hill, Prince George's County, Maryland, MARGARET RUTH, second daughter of the late COL THOMAS BOWIE, in the 19th year of her age, of Pulmonary disease, with which she had been long afflicted, and which she bore with unexampled fortitude.
Died. At her mother's residence in Charles County, MD., on the 6th instant, with a pulmonary affection, Miss MARY A. FENWICK, the only surviving child of NICHOLAS FENWICK, Esq., deceased; in the 19th year of her age. In the death of this amiable girl, a disconsolate mother, numerous relations and friends have experienced an irreparable loss; but they have this consolation left, although snatched from this vale of tears in the bloom of youth, she was perfectly resigned to her fate. Hence, they may conclude that, having died in that religion which teaches that true virtue only receives its reward in the world to come, they may confidently hope she is only gone to receive the rewards of her virtue.
Married. On the 8th inst. at the residence of JOHN TABB, Esq, in the borough of Norfolk, by the Rev. Mr. WINGFIELD, Lieutenant JOHN H. LEE, of the U. S. Navy to Miss ELIZABETH PROSSER, of Gloucester County.

LOST - FOUND - REWARDS - WANTED
$100 Reward. Left my farm on Saturday night, 15th instant, in company with three others who have been recovered, Negro HENRY, a bright mulatto, about 18 years of age, of very brisk motion, and sprightly countenance, and apt to stammer or stutter a little if confused. His clothing consists of a few fur hat, a gray frock coat, a pair of brown pantaloons, both domestic cloth twilled, a pair of cassimere pantaloons, and a white cotton shirt with a linen bosom and collar. HENRY has brown wavy hair, showing completely the white man and Negro mixture. His companions were taken near Greencastle, Pennsylvania. The above reward, and all reasonable expenses, will be given for apprehending and delivering to me the above Negro. By WILLIAM C. FITZHUGH, Upperville, Loudoun County, VA, Oct. 17, 1825.
Wanted. I wish to purchase a handsome, smart servant boy, from 17 to 20 years of age, to wait in my house; one from the country, who is known to be sober and honest (and none other need be offered). I will give a fair price for. Apply to W. S. NICHOLLS.
Lost. On the 8th instant, a double cased Silver watch, between Capitol Hill and the President's House. The finder can have a reward of three dollars by leaving the watch at the office of the National Intelligencer, with MR. T. DONOHO, and many thanks from an old Revolutionary soldier.
$75 Reward. Ran away from the subscribers, on the night of the 14 or 15th instant, a Negro lad named ABNER, calls himself ABNER RILEY; he is about five feet 2 or 3 inches high, and between 18 and 20 years of age; has a large fleshy face, an intelligent countenance, dark complection, lips rather thick, and flat nose; he is quite sprightly when spoken to, is pretty chunky and stout built, stoops considerably when standing or walking. He has been brought up as a house servant, at which he is very handy. He took with him a blue cloth coat, which on examination may be discovered that it has been turned and remade; also one corduroy roundabout and pantaloons, 2 pairs of shoes one coarse the other lined and bound, 1 pair bombazette pantaloons, and one hat; his other clothing not recollected. It is supposed he left the neighborhood in company with five or six who ran away about the same time and are making for the State of Pennsylvania or Ohio, and may possibly change his name. I will give the above reward if apprehended out of the states of Maryland and Virginia, or $40 if in the State of Maryland, $20 if in the State of Virginia, and secured so that I get him. By JOHN BOYD, Middleburg, Loudoun County, VA.
$100 Reward. The above reward will be given for the apprehension and confinement in jail so that I get him again of my Man BEN, who ran away on Saturday, the 20th of May last. He is a carpenter by trade, about 5 feet 10 inches high; a remarkably large, square built fellow; has a white lock of hair on the mole of the head; a bright mulatto, with high cheek bones, deep creases on each cheek, thick lips, and about 45 years of age. He can write a pretty good hand, and no doubt has copied the papers of some free man; and I have reason to believe he stole the Stafford County seal and attached the impression of it to his papers. He carried with him three of his daughters, the property of my neighbor, MOSES KENDALL, and a Negro man, the husband of one of them, who was taken up at Vansville, Maryland, , on the 23d of May, and lodged in the Washington jail. He says that my man intended to go to St. Domingo. I forewarn all captains of vessels and any other persons from employing or harboring said fellow, at their peril. By ROWZEE PEYTON, Stafford County, VA, June 1, 1825.
$30 Reward. Will be given to any person for apprehending and securing, so that the subscriber recovers them, a Negro servant named SYLVIA, and her child named JANE, or $15 for either of them, or for such information as may lead to their recovery. Sylvia was formerly the property of MR. CREASE; had been hired in Alexandria for some months past, where she is well known. On or about the 12th of last month she left Alexandria with the intention (as she stated) to come home. She is about 31 years old, but appears to be more; is rather tall and slender, not very black, and has a pleasant countenance, pock marked about the nose. She sews with her left hand and generally wears a handkerchief about her head. It is unnecessary to describe her clothing, as she may have a variety with her, one article of which is probably a new blue cloth shawl. She dresses neatly, and is a good looking servant. Whether she left Alexandria at the time reported, or at what time, is as uncertain as the direction she may have taken. It is probably she is yet in the District or in the neighborhood, or she may have taken a northern direction. Jane, her daughter, who it is supposed she has with her, is about 6 years old, and looked delicate, owing to a late sickness. Her complection is lighter than the mother. The above reward will be paid to any person for securing the above named servants so that I get them again, by giving immediate information to EDMOND I. LEE, Esq. of Alexandria or to the subscriber at Salisbury, on the old Turnpike Road, and near Centreville and all reasonable charges will be paid if brought home. SYLVIA has connection in the neighborhood of Aldie, Loudoun County. By JOHN LLOYD, Salisbury, Fairfax County.
$150 Reward. Absconded from the subscriber (without any previous disagreement) within the last 14 months, the two following described slaves, viz: (l) From by Oatland Farm, near Brookeville, Montgomery County, Maryland, in May, 1824, JAMES SCOTT, a black fellow, about 40 or 45 years of age, 5 feet 7 or 8 inches high, flat face and bowlegged; a rough carpenter, but slow and lazy; professes to be religious, and is fond of talking. Had on when he left home a domestic blue cotton coat, made straight breasted, coarse linen shirt and trowsers, shoes, and a nearly new furred hat, with a mourning band around it, independent of which he had a variety of other clothing, amongst which is remembered a good broadcloth blue coat with yellow gilt buttons. (2) From Milford, my residence on Potomac, at the mouth of Seneca, about the 1st instant, ANTHONY, who calls himself ANTHONY BUCHANAN, a one-legged fellow, very stout, and a remarkably active and brisk walker notwithstanding his infirmity; he is about 25 years of age, 6 feet fully in height, light complexion inclining to yellow, reads pretty well, professes to be religious, and very fond of singing hymns. Excepting a blue broad cloth coat his clothing is all domestic, or home made, strong and coarse, twilled black and white cotton and wool, and a good deal worn; his hat, though old, is a platt of very superior quality, East India manufacture, and double, very fine, and a brown or mahogany color. Both these fellows are artful and plausible and have no doubt obtained from their companions in their respective neighborhoods either forged passes or legal ones, assuming other names, and made for Pennsylvania or some other northern state. If apprehended and secured (so that I get them) in Maryland or the District of Columbia, I will pay $30 for either, or sixty for both, and if in any other state or district, the above reward, or one half for either. By WASHINGTON BOWIE, Oatland near Brookville, MD, September 23, 1825. The Reporter, of Uniontown, Pennsylvania, and Franklin Gazette, Philad. will insert the above weekly for 6 months and forward their accounts as above for payment.
