Runaway in jail.

--A negro man, calling himself Albert; was committed to the jail of Charlotte county, Va., on the 28th day of August, 1864, as the property of John Otey, of Richmond. He is of brown complexion; about twenty-eight or thirty years of age; and five feet three inches high; and had on when committed, coat and pants of grey-mixed homespun, and a vest of black cassinet, with metal buttons. He says he was hired for the present year to Mr. Thomas Garrett, of Lynchburg.

The owner is requested to come forward, prove property, pay charges, and take him, or he will be sold according to law.
