It is seldom that the dungeons in the Camden County Jail are used to subdue unruly prisoners, but it was found necessary to confine Frederick Slavin, colored, in these dismal quarters. Slavin is serving a sentence for petty larceny. His time is nearly out, but on Friday he assaulted a boy in the jail. For this he was kept in a dungeon until yesterday. The boy has made a complaint before Justice Plum, who lodged a detainer against Slavin.
