ALLEGED KIDNAPPERS ARRESTED. — Two men, named Michael Weaver and Wm. Stewart, were arrested in Cincinnati last week on a charge of kidnapping a colored man from the Ohio side of the river, to Jamestown, Ky., where, after concealing him two weeks, as is stated, they removed him to Newport, and there lay in jail for some time. The Enquirer says that the allegation is that the parties arrested at first kidnapped two slaves from Tasso county, Va, and bringing them to Cincinnati, informed their master of their apprehension, supposing be would pay a large reward for their recovery. The owner of the slaves, however, did not offer a reward, and thereupon the men removed one of the slaves —the other having escaped—over the river. Weaver and Stewart are now on trial.
