The Daily Dispatch: April 7, 1862., [Electronic resource], A leap for liberty. (search)
A leap for liberty. --On Saturday a colored individual, named John Williams, was carried before the Mayer for the rather novel offence of jumping from the window of Jno. Hagan's office in order to escape from working on the batteries. It appears that Williams, as a member of the colored fraternity, had been notified of his liability to contribute a little of his personal exertion towards erecting certain batteries near this city. Failing to respond to the intimation he was taken up and at the time of his attempted escape was in process of being transferred VI et armis to the scene of his future usefulness. The case presenting several model features for constellation, the Mayer continued it in order to discontinue the amount of guilt involved in attempting to escape from work.
