Three sailors who after signing shipping articles, deserted the schr. GEO. C. FINNEY, last week at Erie, were arrested and brought before a U.S. Commissioner. They pleaded that they were shipped under false pretenses, the captain professing that the round trip should only be to detroit, whereas it appeared afterwards it was extended to Chicago. The Commissioners decided that the men must be held for the voyage, and rather than go to jail they complied.
