Newbern, December 24.

Hamilton Ballantine late of the Island of Jamaica, attorney at law, acquaints the public that he purposes to reside in this State, where in the course of his practise he only wishes for such encouragement as his integrity to his clients and to the justness of their cause merits.

The laws being now open in their full latitude, he hopes for the promised encouragement of his acquaintances in different parts of this state, as he purposes to attend the superior courts in the respective districts.
