Returned from the Yankees.

--Jos, a servant of a gentleman of this city, who has been an absentee from his master's premises about eighteen months, and during that time employed by the Abolitionists on St. Helena and the adjacent Islands, returned on Friday morning to his master. He reports the negroes on the Island in a destitute condition, and many anxious to return had they the facilities for doing so. He is very much emaciated, but will soon recover under home influences.--Charleston Courtier, 30th ult.
