Notice.

--Was brought to my jail, Sept. 7th, 1863, a negro man named George Washington; says he belongs to Joseph Bryant, of Bosher Parish, Louisiana, and was hired in the army to cook for Burrel McKinney, of the 9th Louisiana regiment, and was captured by the Yankees with our wagon trains in Pennsylvania, and made his escape near Fredericksburg and swam the river, and says that Col. Hodge, of the 9th Louisiana regiment, is acquainted with him. Said negro is of a black complexion and about 23 years old, is 5 feet 10 inches high, and smartly knock-kneed. The owner will come forward, pay expenses, and take him away.
