SLAVERY IN MISSOURI. – A St. Louis correspondent of the New York Commercial says that negro property is worth so nearly nothing in Missouri that it is said to be nearly impossible to sell a slave anywhere in the country for one fifth the ordinary price, while every other species of property has increased in value. A Ste Genevieve paper reports a stampede of negroes from that county. Slaves have long since ceased to be of value in the counties adjoining Kansas.
