--A blow has just been struck at the slave trade by a decision of Judge Betts, in the U. S. District Cqurt of N. York.
The case arose on the seizure, last April, of the bark Sarah, on the charge of being fitted out for the slave trade.
The judgment of the court condemned the vessel and cargo for being fitted out with intention to embark upon a slave voyage.
