RUNAWAYS CAUGHT. Three runaway slaves, who by robbery had procured a good supply of money, and a white man who wrote false passes for them, were recently captured at a rendezvous for such fellows, on the Eastern Branch, brought to Washington, and committed. The white man’s name is not given; the slaves were George D. Brown and Adam Gantt, belonging to Garret Roby and Henry Harmon, Esqs., of Charles County, Md., and Ostourn Moore, belonging to H. D. Hatton, Esq., of Prince George’s County.
