Free Negroes leaving Charleston.

--The New York Express, noticing the arrival of the steamship Marion, from Charleston, says: ‘"There were twenty-three free negroes on board, whose comfortable circumstances may be inferred from the fact that they had taken cabin passage for the trip. They comprised some five families, and their intended destination is said to be Hayti — they not having much faith in the professions of Northern Abolitionists in their behalf."’
