Was committed to the jail of Warren county, on the 10th of August, 1832, by James Cornell, Justice of the Peace in and for said county, a negro man who calls himself HENRY, and says he belongs to THOMAS S. SCOTT, near Georgeville, Yazoo county, Mi. Said negro is five feet eight and half inches high, dark complexion, 45 or 48 years of age, and has a scar on his left cheek, occasioned by the cut of a knife; and one over his left eye, occasioned by a fall from a horse. Had on when committed, an old palm leaf hat, domestic shirt and pantaloons. The owner of said negro is requested to come forward, prove property, pay charges and take him out of jail, or he will be dealt with as the law directs. JAMES HALL, Jailer Vicksburg.
