HEAVY ROBBERY.––Stampede of Slaves.––On Saturday night a serious stampede of slaves occurred in this city. Five likely and valuable slaves made for parts unknown, one of them taking $1,500 of his master's money with him. One negro belonged to Mr. Geo. E. Sadler, one to Mr. R.H. Dickinson, one to Jones & Slater, and two others. The one belonging to Messrs. Jones & Slater enjoyed their fullest confidence. For a long time he had been taking deposits in bank for them.––Richmond (Va.) Post.
