Almost every mail brings intelligence of the escape of slaves from the border slave States.––Thirty-five are reported to have left a single county in Maryland in one day last week, and about a dozen from other places in the same State in the course of a week. Scarcely a day passes that such attempts are not made, successful and unsuccessful, and the number is supposed to be very large that have resorted to this method of establishing their right to themselves during the summer in Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia.––Anti Slavery Standard.
