A stampede of slaves, says the Cumberland, Md., Telegraph, took place from our city on the 15th inst.; eight of them belonged to J.G. Lynn, Esq., and one to Joseph Dilley, Esq. They were pursued and overtaken about twenty-four miles from this place, in Bedford county, Pa., and those belonging to Mr. Lynn were brought back. Five of them have their feet so badly frozen as to be unable to walk.
