Stampede of Negroes in Missouri.
The St. Louis News of the 14th notices the escape of $11,000 worth of chattels from Lagrange, Missouri. The party consisted of six males and five females. They took a flat boat and crossed to Illinois in the night, and probably secured a safe passage over the U.G.R R, though the seven persons who claimed ownership offered a reward of $2,650 for their arrest
