Recapture of a desperate negro.
--The Savannah Republican, of the 17th, says, that the negro noticed in that paper as captured on Friday afternoon last, and who subsequently made his escape was again captured yesterday morning.
His pursuers started him with dogs in the woods near McAlpin
's brick yard, and chased him as far as Dundee bridge, on the Augusta
road, before he was captured.
It was eventually effected with much difficulty, as he was armed with a bowie knife, with which he killed two of the dogs and severely cut several others, besides attempting several times to cut his pursuers.
One of the party fired at him twice the shots taking effect in his arms, so as to disable him without jeopardizing his life.
The negro says his name is Toney
, and that he belongs to Mr. Johnson
, of Brooks county
He states that after he made his escape, on Friday evening, he took a circuitous route through the woods, and went back to the mill of Messrs. W. B. Giles
& Co., and had the hand-cuffs filed off, and then started off again.
is a powerful and desperate negro, weighing some 250 pounds, and ready for any sort of adventure.
Since his arrest, facts have come to light that create a strong suspicion that he is the murderer of Patrick Brady
, who was killed in his house, near the canal, in February last.--His depredations are doubtless without number.
