The Fairmount Virginian says that on Saturday night week, six slaves––four owned by Thos. Knotts, one by Absolom Knotts, and one by the estate of Jane Donnell––took six horses and made off for Pennsylvania. One of the party was captured and all the horses were recovered, but the other five slaves made good their escape.
