--Was committed to the jail of Bedford county
on the 8d of December, 1861, a Negro Man, who calls himself Isaac Rixby
, and says he is the property of Daniel Hunt
, of Richmond, Va.
Said negro is of a ginger-bread color, about 23 years old 6 feet high, with a good set of teeth; no scars, except on the back, from whipping; and had on, when committed a suit of dark-colored domestic cloth, very much worn, and ragged.
The owner of said negro is requested to come forward, prove property, pay charges, and take him away; otherwise he will be dealt with as the law directs.
