Last Saturday night a stampede of slaves occurred in Richmond. Five likely and valuable slaves made off to parts unknown, one of them taking $1,500 of his master's money with him. The Richmond Dispatch says it is very evident from the number of slaves that have escaped within a short time past, that they have the assistance of abolition emissaries.
