Negro Stampede.

   We learn from the Hannibal Democrat of the 23d, that Mr. John Burt of Marion Co., lost by flight on Sunday night last, six negroes. The Democrat states, they were enticed away by a negro preacher of the Methodist Church, named McDaniels. 

   Heretofore, if has been usual where negroes run away from their master, in Marion county, to accuse citizens of Quincy with running them off, when, in point of fact, we suppose that not a soul in this city knew of their flight. Those stampedes nearly always occur from agencies and causes existing right in the midst of the slave owners themselves.
