Bloody Stampede of Slaves.

   CINCINNATI, Jan. 28. P.M--A stampede of slaves left the border counties of Kentucky last night. Their whereabouts became known, several having been discovered here. The officers at noon to-day proceeded to make arrests. When approaching the house where the slaves were secreted, the latter fired, wounding two or three spectators, but not seriously. One slave woman finding escape impossible, cut the throat of one of her children, killing it instantly. She wounded severely two others. Six were apprehended. Eight are said to have escaped.
