Daring Negro.

--On Tuesday night a negro named Peter was arrested, in Charleston, S. C., by private James Morgan, of the mounted police force. Morgan gave his horse to another policeman, and proceeded to lead Peter to the Guard House. Though the policeman had his sword drawn for protection, before he had proceeded many steps the negro drew a pistol and fired, narrowly missing his mark. The fellow then rushed at Morgan with a dirk and inflicted a very severe wound in the left shoulder, after which he succeeded in making his escape.
