Redpath's Scheme of free Negro Emigration to Hayti.

--James Redpath, the abolitionist, and special agent of the Haytien government to induce the free blacks of this country to emigrate to Hayti, has permanently located himself in Boston, and has opened a "bureau" in the Washington Building, where the friends of Hayti, and persons desiring information about it, may ascertain all the facts in relation to his project. The government of Hayti instructed Redpath to make Boston the sole port of shipment for the Northern States. He has also received directions from the Cabinet this week, to extend a special invitation to Mrs. Leary (the wife of the negro who fell at Harper's Ferry) to make her home in Hayti, and offering her a house there. Preparations have been made on a scale large enough to settle 100,000 persons as soon as they shall offer.
