We learn from the American, that on Monday last, ten negroes ran away from Lagrange, Mo., five males and five females. They belonged to seven different persons in that town. They have offered a reward of $2,650 for their arrest The negroes stole a flat boat from Lagrange in which it is supposed they crossed the river. The boat was caught afloat at or near Quincy. We also learn from the American that another negro made his escape from that place on Friday night last.
