The Blount County Herald======================================
We learn that the jail at Blountsville was broken on last Wednesday and
the prisoners made good their escape. The free used of a hand-saw and
chisel enabled them to make their exit.
On the 27th inst. Mr. Jas. Scott, of Jefferson co., was married to Miss Eliza Milner, of Blount, at the residence of the bride's father, Mr. Henry Milner, near Chepultepec. After the ceremonies were over the guests were invited to a table well filled with the luxuries of life, to which they did ample justice.
The happy couple start to-day for their new home in Jefferson
Uncle Dan McPherson is on a visit to Blountsville to see his
son-in-law, Mr. Wooten. Although his head is white with the frosts of 78 winters, and he is afflicted with old age, yet Uncle Dan "spins a yarn" and cracks a joke with as much zest as when in the prime of life. He is quite old, but always good-humored and cheerful, and seems to enjoy his declining years as much as any aged person. A better citizen than Uncle Dan is not in Blount.
