A Richmond Darkey in Boston.

-- An item was copied in this paper, a few days since, which stated that one of the men who recently served on a jury at a trial in Boston, was a negro named W. S. Anderson. The circumstance was thought worthy of mention because it was the first time one of the colored brothers had been requested, in the modern Athens, to act in such a capacity. Anderson is a Richmond Darkey — used to work in Williamson's barber-shop, and, when in this region, was familiarly known as "Governor." We believe he is a slave, and departed licence on the underground railroad.
