Desperate Negro --Assault and Escape.--Yesterday morning, officer Chalkley encountered a negro named Thomas Guinn, who represented himself to be free, but had no papers. The officer arrested him after a hard struggle, and conducted him to the watch-house, where he was placed in one of the cells.

Wilkinson were sitting in an adjacent apartment, and the negro continuing his calls, Mr. Page got up and went to his cell.
