Man hung.

--Brad Jones, who has for a number of years kept a shop in Springfield, Effingham county, was hung by the Vigilance Committee of that county on Thursday last. He had rendered himself obnoxious by the purchase of articles stolen by negroes, and other improper conduct with that portion of the population; and though frequently remonstrated with for his iniquitous conduct, he was heedless, and brought upon himself this severe retribution.--Savannah (Ga.) Republican, 13th.
