FUGITIVE SLAVE CASE. A fugitive slave was in State Prison last week, and his term within one day of its close, when the U.S. Marshal and a son of the claimant appeared at Sing Sing for the purpose of making arrangements for his release at a designated hour next day, when they would be on hand to nab him. When they made their errand known, they were informed the fugitive had been pardoned, and left a few moments before they entered. It is understood he had taken passage northward on the underground railroad, and he has not since been heard from.
