From Mr. Thomas Hardin of Dartmouth. A glede coloured stallion, about four years old, with a white face and raw nose, black mane and tail mixed with some white hairs, and one of his hind feet white, he is supposed to have been carried away by the French below the Eastern battery. Whoever can give intelligence of him to the printer in Halifax, or to the owner in Dartmouth, so as he may have him again, shall have twenty shillings reward.
