T. A. Booth, sheriff of Baldwin county has issued a circular, one of which has come into the possession of the Selma police, proclaiming a reward of $400 for the capture, dead or alive, of Walter Clayton, the negro desperado who created such a furror in Mobile by his assault on a white woman, and by his subsequent escape from the mob that was bent on lynching him. Clayton is a negro murerer, who was held in Baldwin county, but escaped to commit his horrible depredation in Mobile.
