WAS committed to the Jail of Shelby county, Tennessee, on the 24th of August, 1843, a negro man who calls himself CHALES [correction: CHARLES], and says that he belongs to Wm. Stephens, of Hardeman county, Ten. Charles is quite black, 5 feet 9 inches high, about 25 years old; will weigh 150 lbs., and has a smart gap in his upper and under front teeth, but no front tooth missing. The owner of said boy will come forward, prove property, pay charges and take him away, or he will be dealt with as the law directs.
