STAMPEDE. – One hundred fugitive slaves from Virginia, arrived at Harrisburg, Penn., in two days. Nobody obstructs them in the flight. They were in bad plight but were provided for and sent on their way to Canada. They report the mountains of Virginia to be full of them, progressing towards the North Star. Slave holders in Virginia will soon be convinced that they made an unfortunate move in seceding. They said they were in a fryingpan, and could not stand it!
