ESCAPE FROM JAIL
On Thursday afternoon, four prisoners escaped from the jail at Canandaigua.
By some means they got up into the loft, and thence through a scuttle upon
the roof, after which they lowered themselves to the ground by means of
sheets taken from their beds. They then scaled the walls and went off. One
of them was arrested at Fisher's Station yesterday morning, and brought to
this place by an officer from Canandaigua. The others are still at large.
names are Charles BALES, William DEMING, and Augustus GEER.
They have been seen in this vicinity - at the first lock.
Sheriff HILD--- was away from home when the escape occurred.
