A FUGITIVE. Yesterday forenoon, a smart, active, and intelligent looking man, about 23 years of age, called at the mayor's office and asked for something to eat. He represented that he ran away from his master in North Carolina and landed in Philadelphia. Thence he came to New York, and arrived in Boston yesterday morning, leaving immediately for this city, on his way to Canada. He expected to meet a sister, who left shortly before he did, at Montpelier, Vt. He was furnished with a good meal of victuals, and left shortly after on the underground railroad for her majesty's dominions.- Lowell News.
