Jim Allen, a free negro, for being caught in an unlawful assembly and running off from the officers after being apprehended, was yesterday brought before the Mayor, and admonished and discharged. The Mayor said there were over two hundred negro slaves going about in this city without homes and engaging in all kinds of mischief, and that the police were to arrest and bring before him all such parties found blocking up the streets.
