Selling Mass. Colored Boys into Slavery

We stated a few days since that two colored boys, Charles L. Ames, of Dedham, servant of Col. Burrell of the Mass. 42nd, and Charles Jackson, of West Roxbury, servant to Dr. Cummings of the same regiment, had been sold into slavery by the Texas rebels, after the capture of a portion of that regiment at Galveston. The Norfolk County Journal says that the mother of one of the lads was in Roxbury last week, and is suffering untold anguish in view of the fate which has befallen her child.
