A remarkable capture was made
of a negro named Henry Lease,
alias Sam Avery, on the plantation
of Mr. H. D. Wood at Pinehurst
last Thursday. Two officers from
the Georgia Penitentiary came
down to Pinehurst and went out to
tho home of Mr. Wood and walked
upon this negro in the field, who
has been working for Mr. Wood
some tints, and arrested him.
He had been sentenced to life
mprisonmeut end had served ten
years of it before making his escape.
This was twelve years ago and the
negro possibly had almost quit ever
thinking of being re-captured and
compelled to serve out the remain
der of bis life in the penitentiary.
Mr. Wood was absent from borne
and but for the presence of bis sou
when the officers came and carried
away his faithful hand—would
probably have not known for some
time whdt went with him.
There is only one conaelation for
him now end that is there were
twelve years of bit life be did not
have to serve in the penitentiary as
sentenced, bnt worked when he
felt like it.
