Negro Stampede.––We learn from a private source that some half dozen negroes, belonging to Gen. Boggs, and others of Pendleton county, made tracks on Saturday night last, for a home north of Mason and Dixon's line. It is greatly to be hoped that they will speedily be secured, as, apart from the loss sustained, success only leads to other absconding. The fugitives stole horses to help them on the way.––Hardy (Va.) Whig, Oct. 6th.
