Still in Limbo.

--The four Northern sailors who went out from New Bedford after whales and fished up a good cargo of Africans on the Guinea Coast, and who were arrested in this city a few days since, on their return home, as suspicious persons, were brought from the jail yesterday and carried to the Mayor's office for examination. His Honor not being ready to give an opinion as to what disposition should be made of them, continued the case, and the parties were sent back. No doubt in a short time they will be permitted to continue their journey ‘"due North. "’--Their names are John Walker, Jerome Coleburne, John Foy, and Fauls. The latter, who was quite unwell, obtained a permit and was carried to the Medical College.
