Abram Ross the kidnapped negro, returned to this city on Friday last, abont 12 o'clock. His return created quite a sensation. There was an almost universally expressed wish to see him and congratulate him on his return. We are informed that he escaped from the boat at Meredosia while laying at the whart in the night, by means of a case knife, willi which he unf'ustened the look upon the door of his room. The knife was given him to eal with, and was by him retained, unobserved. - We learn that his pursuers, not vet content to relinquish their prey areagain prowling abont the city. It is said that the colored people, alarmed at the temerity and success of these infernal scoundrels, in carrying off Ross, are all armed to the teeth, and prepared to resist unto death any future atempt of the kind. - [Chicago Citizen] Father Mathew. - A paratylic shock tit is now stated, will compel this great Apostle of Temperance to defer yet longer, and perhaps abandon forever, his contemplated visit to the United States. This intelligence will be read witli general and great regret. Another Counterfeit. - The Times cautions the public, on w'hat it considera " sufficient authorify," against counterfeit notes on the Sandusky city bank. The plate.it is said, is the same as the counterfeit 3's on the Commercial bank of Cincinnati. Merely the title of the bank is altered.
