Until a month ago he was Imprisoned
in the debtor's room with another pris
oner but by some means he was sup
plied with a lile with which he sawed
through the iron bars of the grating
and soomcd to have everything ripe
for an escape when his companion gave
him away. Ho was then lodged in a
dungeon but on Wednesday evening
actually effected his escape. The iron
bars were found sawed through after
the manner of the previous occasion
and ho seems to have slipped down
stairs and through the outside door
while the other prisoners were having
supper distributed to thorn.
It is supposed that he obtained a
shave at a colored barber shop and
from thonco proceeded to Clinton
where by tho assistance of a negro
named Sixon. ho took the north
bound vostibulo disguised as a woman.
At about (.'bester tho conductor In
taking his fare noticed his Viand and ac
