Crossing Over


Several slaves belonging to Mr. Craig residing back of Covington, Ky., recently made their escape. The walked all the way to Cleveland, following the railroad track. One of them thought it was a hard road to travel, and when about half way to Cleveland proposed to go back; but his companions were in good courage, and persuaded him to keep on with them, which he did. They took the steamer at Cleveland for Detroit and from that city crossed into the Queen's dominions.
