Major Haynie, of Ouschita county, Ark., in a letter dated on the 10th inst. to the Van Buren Intelligencer, says that eleven negroes had run away from his immediate neighborhood, and that a general stampede among the negroes was apprehended, if not something worse. The people had become somewhat alarmed, and had adopted measures of precaution, and were using every exertion to capture the runaways. It was thought that there was a concert of action among the slaves in that vicinity.
