Another stampede among the slaves has taken place in Covington. On night before last, nine of them took the underground road and started for the Provinces of her British Majesty. When last heard of, they were making good time through the little town of Cumminsville, in this country. Five of the slaves, we understand, were the property of Mayor Foley, and had uniformly been well treated. It only goes to show that the slave always longs for freedom, and however well you treat him, will take the "underground road" when a fair opportunity is offered.––Cin. Com.
