STAMPEDE AMONG THE AFRICANS.––On Sunday night last, some 15 or 20 slaves departed this city for the colder climates on the north. It is generally supposed that they absconded under the advice and control of the very efficient underground railroad agents who seem to hold place and profit in our city.––St. Louis Dem.
