Slave Captured in New Jersey


A slave was arrested last week in New Jersey by the son of is master and two strong men employed for the purpose.  A severe struggle ensued, and both men bore marks of the negroe’s strong right arm and unyielding will.   He was at length overpowered, gagged and tied down in the bottom of the wagon, that he should not excite public sympathy by his appearance or his outcries; and he was thus carried out of the county and the State, without a trial or a hearing.  The driver of the wagon has been indicted for his share of the outrage.
