Quite an excitement sprung up at Sandusky, Ohio, on the 21st ult., in consequence of the capture and subsequent rescue of a party of fugitive slaves from Kentucky. White and black scamps participated in the rescue, and immediately started the runaways for Canada. The owners, it is probable [probably], will sue the city for the loss of their property. Another slave stampede occurred in Washington county, Maryland, last Saturday. No less than sixteen eloped. Like their Kentucky brethren, they are very likely in Canada by this time.
