A STAMPEDE––On Friday night last, sixteen human chattels from the "Sunny South" came up on the underground railroad on their way towards the "North Star." The owners, or their agents arrived in this city soon after, and were taken to a house on the North Side by one who professed to aid them in their efforts to recapture their freed humanity, and employed them in a fruitless search. While thus engaged, the train was fired upon the eastern branch of the U.G.R.R., and the fooled slave hunters awoke to the astonishing fact that it was too late."
