The Fugitive Slave Stampede––Bank Rumor. &c.
PITTSBURG, Sept. 25, P.M.––Upwards of 140 fugitive slaves have left the city and Alleghany since last Saturday, for Canada. They were all armed to the teeth, and were determined to die before they would surrender. Several Southerners, suspected as being slave hunters, are now here.
It is rumored that the North Western Bank of Virginia is in an unsound condition.
