ANOTHER SLAVE STAMPEDE AND CONFLICT. Baltimore, Aug. 9.––Five runaway slaves were brought here this morning in the Susquehannah cars from Pennsylvania. They were those who had absconded from different counties in this State. It being ascertained that the runaways were secreted in the farm of colored man one mile across the Pennsylvania line, a party proceeded there with a view to the capture of the men.

   They succeeded in arresting seven of them. In passing through Sprattsburgh, some abolitionists, headed by Postmaster Brown, made an attempt at recapture and rescued two of the slaves.
