Description: Thirty-Three Negroes Decamped.

Date: September 7 1860

Newspaper published in: Macon, GA.

We learn that thirty-three negroes belonging to Mrs. CHAMBLISS, whose plantation is a mile or two from the city, left the field yesterday where they were at work and made for the woods. This is a very unusual season for negroes to run away. It is, doubtless, the doings of some vile abolition emissary. (Montgomery Mail, 4th inst.)
