- We are informed by the steward of the schooner Thadeus that Geo. Deadly, a young man from New Jersey, who sailed from this port as cook and steward of the above schooner bound for Georgetown, District of Columbia, has been confined there as a slave. The captain we are told went to considerable trouble to get him clear, but was unsuccessful. The present steward of the Thadeus, who said from here on the 29th or 30th, has volunteered his services to attend the trial and do all that lays in his power. The trial takes place on the 21st of this month. When the liberty of Crogan was in danger the whole country new it, and when that of McLeod, the whole civilized world, but that of poor George Deadly excited but that of a few.- Why? because he is colored.
