Roaming about --A negro, named John Hudson, was arrested by a watchman last Friday night, and when asked for his free papers, presented to the officer a letter addressed to "Miss Laura Williams," which contained ardent wishes for her "good health," and was signed "Chris. Long." The document was not quite sufficient to prove his freedom or his honesty, and the Mayor committed Hudson to jail. A woman named Elizabeth Foster, claiming to be free, was also before the Mayor on Saturday, and ordered to procure her papers forthwith.
