--The determination of the Mayor to bring to sight the free negroes who live in Richmond without the requisite documents, calls a number of them into his presence almost every day. Among those who appeared yesterday was one bearing the classic name of Quintus, to which had been added the appellation Terry. This negro, who has lived here for four years without a register, stated that he was employed by the Central Railroad Company. On promising to leave the city at once, he was discharged. Prudence Johnson, a Manchester free negro, who lacks prudence in her movements, was directed to go straight back to the city of spindles. Louisa Richardson, another of the same class, was discharged on condition of her immediate return to Fredericksburg, from whence she came.
