The New York Fugitive.

--The owner of the negro John Thomas arrived here a day or two since from Kentucky, and lost no time in selling John Thomas, who will probably go South. This runaway negro, it will be remembered, was arrested in New York, and brought here by two officers of that city. We record the fact at this time with more gratification, because it furnishes at least one instance of good faith and observance of a constitutional obligation.
