The Staunton shoemakers.

--The Boston Journal recently published a statement to the effect that several Northern shoemakers, who had been employed in Staunton, Va., were driven away from the place after being imprisoned, etc. Mr. G. S. Raymond, late foreman of the Staunton Shoe Factory, who is also a New Englander, has the honor to refute this gratuitous slander. He publishes a card in the Journal, in which he says that the party referred to ‘"were not interfered with in any manner at Staunton, but were perfectly free to go away or remain, as they choose."’ It seems that they preferred to leave and went ‘"through the entire route without any molestation whatever"’
