STAMPEDE FRUSTRATED. – We learn that about forty negroes had made arrangements to leave their masters in Woodford county on Saturday night last, but the plot was discovered just in time to defeat its execution. The negroes al had free passes. According to the plan of operations, each was to steal a horse and cross the Ohio river before day. They were betrayed by a negro to whom the plan was disclosed, and who was requested to join in it. The
