Running off negroes.

--A negro named George, slave of Dr. John Leftwich, was yesterday arrested on the charge of running off negroes to the Yankees. When taken in custody, George seemed much alarmed; but made a full confession, stating that the number sent through our lines could not be less than twenty-five or thirty.
