The Purchase of Pembroke.

Stephen Pembroke, the slave of Jacob H. Grove, Esq. of Sharpsburg, was purchased from his master last week for the sum of $1000, and taken back to New York. The money was raised through the efforts of Pembroke’s brother, who is a Clergyman of some standing among the colored folks of New York. Pembroke’s two sons, the property of Capt. David Smith, of Sharpsburg, were sold to a lumber merchant in North Carolina, and are now employed in a cypress shingle factory.
