Another Slave Stampede.––It will be seen by our “Mercury” letter from Washington, that the underground railroad is still in active employment by the abolitionists, there having been some 30 or 40 slaves run off Prince George’s country, in this State, in the last few days. If Mr. Pratt’s amendments to the fugitive slave bill should pass Congress, by which all the unrecovered stolen or abducted slaves are to be paid for, these things may not then be so frequent, as Government will then have a more direct interest in checking these unlawful proceedings on the part of certain citizens of free States––Balt. Sun.
