Sale of negroes in the North.

--The annexed paragraph, which is extracted from an Illinois paper, shows what sort of sympathy is extended to free negroes in Mr. Lincoln's own State. If the Yankees were to free all the negroes in the South, it is proba they would signalize their philanthropy by preventing their residence in the "free" North:

The Whiteside (Illinois) Sentinel publishes an official notice, under date of February 2, 1863, signed by C M. Child, J. P, to the effect that, whereas certain negroes named were, on the 5th and 6th ult., tried on "a charge of high misdemeanor, having come into this State and county, and remaining therein for ten days or more, with the evident intention of residing in this State, and were found guilty by a jury, and were each severally fined in the sum of $50," and whereas the fines and costs of suit not having been paid, the said negroes will be sold at auction, on the 19th day of February, 1863, at the Court-House of Carthage, for the payment of said fines and costs.
