THE KENTUCKY SLAVE STAMPEDE.––The Western papers las night bring nothing further with regard to the runaway slaves. The Louisville Journal, speaking of the leader of the movement, says:

   Patrick Doyle, the fellow who aided the negroes in the neighborhood of Lexington to escape, is undoubtedly a scamp of the first water. He was arrested in this city a few weeks ago for attempting to sell some free negroes that he had induced to accompany him from Cincinnati. For want of bail, he was committed to our work-house, from which he made his escape. Nothing had been heard of him since his escape, until the news of his apprehension and imprisonment at Lexington reached here.
