The Mobile Advertiser
and Register learns that a good many negroes in the region above Okalona, Miss.
, have found their way back to their masters, completely disgusted with Yankee freedom and its attendant hardships.
With the propensity to embellishment for which the African race are so noted, they tell dolorous stories of the treatment they have experienced and that which they discovered was in store for them.
One of them asserts that it is the custom of the Yankees
to dispose of the surplus negro women and children by blindfolding them and driving them into the river.
