BILL WILLIAMS, the free negro, found in company with the runaway slaves belonging to Messrs. McCune, Block and others, and who confessed his agency in enticing them away and endeavoring to secure their escape, has been sent to jail to await his trial. His example of a few years service in the Penitentiary may convince others, perhaps, of the impropriety of interfering with the slaves in Missouri. 


"Bill Williams," St. Louis (MO) Republican, November 8, 1849
