We have received a communication in relation to the late "slave stampede" in our neighborhood, of this tenor:
"Rumor may have it, that it was a colored person who betrayed the runaways last week. But unfortunately the one they accuse of having done so started north with a part of the same gang the night before the capture. And this rumor was only to prevent, and may be save the "underground car" from being upset or overtaken. "Justice."
