--A free negro named Sampson Brown
, recently arrested in Richmond county, Va.
on the charge of disloyalty, was brought to this city yesterday and lodged in Castle Thunder.
He halls from Northumberland county
, where, it is alleged, he has been guilty of persuading negroes to join the Yankee
army; has made his brags of what he intends doing to the rebels; how he means to treat ladies when they fall into his hands, and has been heard to say that he has already killed several Confederate soldiers.
A court-martial will soon dispose of his case.
