Fugitive Slave Off to Canada

A Fugitive Slave Hurried Off to Canada     The Vigilance Committee of Boston have had reason to suppose, within the past two or three days, that a planter of North Carolina had reached this city in pursuit of a fugitive slave who left for the North one day quite suddenly about a year since. The fugitive in question had obtained a comfortable berth, on board one of the Eastern Steamboats, the arrival of which at this port, the Committee believed, was awaited by the master, in order to arrest the fugitive. Accordingly an arrangement was made by which the fugitive was taken from the boat at Portland, who started at once for the British Provinces, where he is now free from his self-styled owner.
