STAMPEDE OF SLAVES.––From information which has reached us, (says the Baltimore Sun) there would seem to have been a considerable stampede of slaves from the border valley counties of Virignia during the late Easter holidays. We have heard of seven having made their escape from the plantation of Mr. Mason, in Loudon county, near the Point of Rocks, and two from Berke-county. It is supposed others have gone also.
