Great Excitement in Pittsburgh––Stampede of Fugitive Slaves, &c.

                              PITTSBURGH, Sept. 25. 

   About one hundred and fifty fugitive slaves have left here for the British Provinces since the excitement. Rumors are flying about that large parties of slave catchers are in town. 

   The North Western Bank [is] in bad repute, and many persons refuse to take the notes.
