Persuading negroes to go to the Yankees.

--Yesterday morning a negro named Ned, belonging to the estate of Michael Nowian, was arrested by officer Green, charged with persuading Davy, slave of Dr. O. R. Early, of this city, to escape to the Yankees.--Hardly a day passes by that come negro is not arrested on a similar charge, and the severest penalties of the law should be inflicted upon each offender, when the evidence is of such a character as to justify it.
