Newbern, February 24th .

On Sunday last was married at Pembroke the seat of Abner Nash Esqre near this town Mr Roger Moore of Cape Fear to Miss Polly Nash daughter of the late Thomas Nash Esqre of Edenton; a most amiable young Lady with a handsome fortune.

Last week the Court of Vice Admiralty gave a decree against the vessel lately mentioned in this Paper to have been seized by Capt. Howe in a sloop of war. It appeared she had touched at a Dutch Island and had taken on board a few cases of Gin and Kegs of Brandy and a few yards of foreign sail Duck. The vessel with her Tackle, Apparel, Furniture and Cargo was condemned and sold.
