Runaway in Jail. Was committed the Jail of Warren county, on the 13th of August, 1832, by James Cornell, Justice of the Peace in and for said county, a negro man who calls his name ADAM, and says he belongs to WILLIAM TAYLOR of Natchez. Said negro is five feet three and three quarter inches high, complexion is rather bright, stout built, twenty-three or twenty-five years of age—had on when committed, a domestic shirt and pantaloons, and a palm leaf hat. 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.
