Was committed to the jail of Adams county on the 19th day of May, 1831, by Samuel Postlethwaite, esquire, a negro girl calling herself MILLY, and says she belongs to a Mr. PARIES, a Frenchman in New-Orleans. She is 5 feet 2 inches high, and about 25 years of age, of a reddish yellow complexion, with a very full suit of hair—has been in a habit from appearance of combing it considerably, although her hair is of the kinky kind and not inclined to be straight. She had on when committed a black bombazet dress and a red silk handkerchief, and old shoes; also, a comb stuck in her head. The owner of the above described negro is requested to comply with the law and take her out of jail. W. W. CALMES, Jailor.
