Runaway in jail.

--was committed to the Jail of the county of Hanover on the 18th day of April last, a negro man, calling himself John Ford, as a runaway, but who claims to be a free man.--The said negro is a bright mulatto, and is about five feet eight or nine inches high and is about twenty-three years old; has long black curly hair, and no scars of note. The said negro had on when committed a grey woolen suit, coat lined with strived linsey. The owner of said negro is requested to come forward, prove propert, pay charges and take him away, else he will be dealt with as the law directs.
