The Fugitive slave case in Canada.

--A large meeting was held at Toronto, Thursday night, to sympathise with the fugitive slave Anderson, claimed under the Ashburton treaty for killing Mr. Driggs, of Missouri.--Strong speeches were made against his rendition by lawyers, clergymen and others. A resolution was passed to appeal the case to England, if necessary, and a petition was addressed to the Administrator of the Government, praying for the release of Anderson.
