Stampede Among the Africans.–The St. Louis Democrat says that on the night of Sunday, the 22d Oct., some fifteen or twenty slaves departed from that city in a body, for the colder climate of the North, it is supposed by the remarkably efficient underground railroad agents who reside in or about that city. Heavy rewards were offered by their owners for their recapture, and it was thought that without very skillful management by their pilots, they would be retaken.
