Another fugitive escape

October 3, 1851

Under the title Another Shadrach Case, here is an account from Syracuse, of a man named Henry, who while on a charge of having escaped from slavery, was being examined by a Commissioner.  During the examination he succeeded in making an escape.  He was recaptured, and returned to the police.  He was finally rescued, and “it is believed is now in safety.  The latest dispatch states that the military are still under arms, and the whole city in the highest state of excitement.”
