By a telegraphic despatch received from Maysville, we learn that the runaway negroes were met on Monday night, seven miles form the river, by twenty white men. A fight ensued, and one white man was killed. None of the negroes were taken at the time. Five were afterwards captured....
Five of the negroes who absconded from this city on Saturday night have been apprehended, together with a white man, who had enticed them away.
