LAW NOTICE Christopher B. Strong, of Perry, Houston County and Theodore W. Montfort, Knoxville, Crawford
County, Attorneys, Counselors and Solicitors, have entered into a partnership in the practice of the Law and Equity in the
Superior Courts of the counties of Crawford, Talbot and Macon.

MELANCHOLY DEATH - Frederick Sims, Esq., one of our oldest and most respectable citizens, met with a most
melancholy and painful death on the 23rd inst. Mr. S. was acting temporarily as conductor of the passenger cars upon the
Macon and Western Railroad, and at the time of his death, had charge of the down train. About 15 miles above Macon
and while passing through a plantation, the whistle gave warning of some obstruction upon the tract. Mr. S. anxious to
discover the cause of danger, leaned as far as possible out of the car which brought his head suddenly in contact with a
post, breaking his skull and killing him almost instantly. His remains were brought to the city by the same train and followed to the grave by a large concourse of friends and the Masonic Fraternity of which he was a worthy member. Mr. S. had
filled many important trusts. He was a member of the Georgia Legislature, Post Master and Mayor of the city of Macon,
and filled many other stations with credit to himself and profit to the community. He left an interesting family and a large
circle of friends to mourn his untimely fate.

DIED - In Houston County, on the 20th inst, Louis Williamson, son of Paul S. and Martha E. Dinkins. Aged 2 years and 3
months.

Much news about the ELECTION results of the Cass - Zach Taylor for
Presidency. "The majority in Georgia alone
distributed over five states would have given Gen Taylor between forty and
fifty more votes in the Electoral college...It
proves that he has a deep hold upon the affections and judgements of the
American people. Gen Taylor has bribed no one,
he has coaxed no one, he has cheated no one into his support. It must be to
him a proud consideration that he is not
indebted nor his triumph either to the abstractionist of the south or the
abolitionists of the North.

RUNAWAY from the subscriber in Houston County, Georgia, on the 12th, a
negro man by the name of JIM, who
sometimes calls himself Thalus. He carried with him a new black cloth cap,
and a light snuff-colored Tweed overcoat, a
Watch, and some thirty dollars in money. Said negro is about 24 years old,
light complected , pleasant countenance, large
whiskers, and fully six fee high. I feel confident that he was enticed away
by some white man, as he left to go to a negro
quilting, and had not received a censure from the overseer, or a stripe in
twelve months. I understand that he was in the
company of a notorious villain called Jackson, belonging to Mr. Asa
Thompson of this county. In 1842, I swapped for this
negro from a man who had stolen him in Giles County, Tennessee from George
Malone, and I purchased him from said
Malone in the spring of 1842. Jackson is about the same age five feet 8
inches high, black complexion and of bad
countenance. I will pay a liberal reward for the confinement of my boy in
any safe jail--I will likewise pay a considerable

ARRIVAL OF CHEROKEE This magnificent Steamship arrived at Savannah early on
Saturday morning last in the
unprecedented short run of 57 hours from New York. She had on board one
hundred and three passengers all of whom
spoke in the highest terms of both the sailing qualities of the vessel and
her superior accommodations.
Had it not been for an accident upon the Central Road, the passengers for
this city, and point beyond, would have gained
two full days upon the land route. As it was, they gained one day.... Our
neighbors of Savannah, seem o have been truly
fortunate in their great enterprise. They have at least shown one thing:
that is perfectly practicable to run a line of steamers
between new York and Savannah in the same time required to run to
Charleston. This will of course give the traveler from
Georgia, Alabama and Florida from one to two days advantage.

SERIOUS ACCIDENT. on Friday evening, a gentleman named Troup from Bibb
County, GA was riding in a carriage with
his wife and a small child, along Baronne St. near Julia, when the horses
came in contact with a baker's cart, became
frightened and defied the efforts of Mr. T. to hold them. They dashed around
the corner of Ulia street at a terrible rate of
speed, and were finally brought up against a wile of wood near the new
Basin. The shock overturned the carriage and Mr.
Troup in endeavoring to save the child, fell with great violence upon his
left arm, breaking it just above the wrist. He also
received several severe bruises. The lady and child fortunately escaped
serious injury.

has neight hat nor shoes and rather a scanty pattern of clothing on at this

LOOK OUT FOR A STOLEN NEGRO. My boy, Henry, left my plantation in Sumter
County about the 1st of July last,
without provocation, and as I then supposed with the intention of getting
to North Carolina from whence he was brought
about 18 months since. But from the circumstance of several negroes in this
and adjoining counties, having left their owners,
about and since the time my boy left, and being afterwards taken, while
under the care of white men--I am persuaded that
my boy has also been taken off by some white person, or received such
papers from them, as have enabled him to pass as
free. From information obtained through a boy of Judge Duncan's. who was
taken from Dooly county by a man named
Seth Mills, then hailing from Jones county, and afterwards arrested in
Griffin, where he had been carried by Mills, I am of
the opinion that my boy was one among several others in the possession of
Mills, In Jones County, sometime sin October
last. What disposition Mills made of these Negro's, I have not learned, but
have ascertained intended taking them near
Glennville, Alabama.
Henry is about 23 years old, copper colored, face and jaws very full, and
fond of suffering his beard to grow long around
and under his chin. He is heavily built and will weigh 160-175 pounds. His
countenance is heavy and rarely lighted up by a
smile or laugh. I will give a liberal compensation for his arrest and
delivery in any jail or to myself near Perry, Houston
County. T.M. Furlow.

DIED. In this city, on the 16th Capt A.D. Powell, aged about 35 years. On
the 18th his daughter, Mary Elizabeth, aged
about 4 years.
On the 17th Mr. Arnold Johnson, aged about 55 years.

FOR SALE. The following Negroes: Woman and child, cook and washer; Girl 14
years old, accustomed to housework
and nursing; Man 27 years old, prime field hand and axe man. Sold for no
fault, but merely to change the investment. E.L.
