HEAVY STAMPEDE OF SLAVES.
The Leesburg (Virginia,) Mirror says. "We doubt whether any county in the State suffers more serious loss from absconding negroes than Loudon. Within the last twelve months the loss in this species of property has been immense.––Even within the last fortnight we have heard of no less than fifteen or twenty negroes who have made good their escape."
