    ST. CATHARINES, Aug. 20th, 1855.

    DEAR BR. STILL:-I am requested by Henry Washington to inform you that be got through safe, and is here in good business. He returns to you his sincere thanks for your attention to him on his way. I had the pleasure of receiving seven fugitives last week. Send them on, and may God speed them in the flight. I would like to have a miracle-working power, that I could give wings to them all so that they could come faster than by Railroads either underground or above. Yours truly, HIRAM WILSON.
