On Saturday week a serious stampede of slaves occurred in Richmond, Va. Five likely and valuable slaves made off for parts unknown, one of them taking $1500 of his master's money with him. One negro belonged to Mr. George F. Sadler, one to Mr. R.H. Dickinson, one to Jones & Slater, and two others. The one belonging to Messrs. Jones & Slater enjoyed their fullest confidence. For a long time he had been making their deposits in the bank for them.
