Runaway in Jail.

--Was committed to the Jail of the county of Hanover, on the 25th day of June last, as a runaway, a Negro Woman, calling herself Milly, and says she is the property of Peter Pulliam, of the city of Richmond, Va. The said Negro is of a dark complexion, and is about four feet ten inches high, and about 60 years of age, and has a wen on the right shoulder — a scar on same shoulder. The said Negro had on when committed an old brown Calico dress. The owner of the said Negro is requested to come forward, prove property, pay charges, and take her away, else she will be dealt with as the law directs.
