Another Shadrach Case, in Syracuse


A telegraphic dispatch from Syracuse, 1st inst., announces the arrest of a colored man named Henry, on the charge of being a fugitive from slavery.  During the examination before the Commissioner, he succeeded making his escape.  A carriage was procured for him, but he was recaptured, and taken to the police office.  The military were called out, and every precaution taken to prevent his rescue; yet, notwithstanding the efforts of the officers, he was finally rescued, and it is believed is now in safety.  The latest dispatch states that the military are still under arms, and the whole city in the highest state of excitement.
