A Mr. Hicks, of Kentucky, lost three negroes, who crossed to Indiana, near Evansville. The owner came to Evansville and secured the services of an officer named Evans, and by his assistance caught his property which was taken back to Kentucky. The reward offered was $500, but when Hicks got his niggers home he refused to pay the reward. The Evansville Enquirer says this is shabby and will injure the slave owners of Kentucky, for their niggers are constantly stampeding.
