HARE - See Ware

Wm. HARRIS, a preacher, dentist, etc., was convicted by our criminal court last evening for kidnapping a slave boy from Mr. BOWLES, and sentenced to the Penitentiary for five years--the jury recommending him to the mercy of the court--the only contingency by which we presume they were enabled to agree upon a verdict, after being out six days.  The general opinion is that Harris deserves no further mercy than the jury awarded him in the leniency of their verdict.  The defence set up was insanity--which unfurtunately for Harris, burst out all of a sudden after his arrest for the crime.  We hear great praise awarded to Edwin YERGER(?) Esq., for the distinguished legal ability and eloquence displayed by him in the prosecution.  Harris was defended by Judge Wm. T. BROWN and J. DELAFIELD Esq.  We shall revert to this interesting and important trial again.  Weekly American Eagle, 7/24/1846.

Left His Mother—A lad of about 11 years of age named Edward HILL, son of a widow lady of this place, secreted himself on the “Monarch” on her last trip to New Orleans, and when the boat arrived there managed to elude the vigilance of the officers.  He is supposed to be at large in that city.  Edward has light, sandy hair, dark hazel, nearly black eyes, and is marked with a boil on the right portion of his forehead in the edge of his hair.  He is sprightly and talkative and would probably be called a “bad” boy.  The only clothing he had on when he eloped, was blue cottonade pants, and a coarse domestic shirt.  By representing himself as an orphan, he won upon the kind feelings of a French passenger whose little son was also on board.  This gentleman left the boat at night, on its arrival in the city, and it is supposed that Edward slipped off about the same time with the purpose of rejoining him.  Any person who will give any information in regard to him, or place him in charge of the officers of either of our Memphis packets, will confer a lasting debt of gratitude upon a bereaved and distressed mother……Tri-Weekly Memphis Enquirer, 10/8/1846.

Col. Wm. P. MILLER--We were gratified in again shaking hands a few days since, with Col. Miller, late from Texas.  He has arrived at his home in Randolph, after many hardships and imprisonment in the cause of Texian liberty, and, as is not uncustomary, a victim of persecution and ingratitude of some who have been most benefitted by his services.  Our citizens will remember the Colonel having visited our town a few months since, with a gallant band of martial heroes, volunteers in the Texian wars, who marshalled through our streets, under the waving folds of their silver star.  Col. Miller has taken about 500 soldiers into Texas; and has been a most efficient and valuable officer in the early history and struggles of the infant republic.  On his return thro' New Orleans, he was presented with a beautiful Texian banner, by the patriotic ladies of that city, as a testimony of regard for his services; whilst President Houston, in gratitude for the same services, took from him his sword.  Col. Miller is popular with both the people and army of Texas, and a Committee of Congress, appointed for the purpose, shielded Col. M. from the persecution of the President, as unjust and arbitrary.  President Houston is by no means popular with either the citizens or army.  Memphis Enquirer, 9/9/1837.
