Negro Stampede. -- On Tuesday night last, eight slaves, (five men, a woman, and two children,) belonging to sundry citizens of Mason county, (Ky.) made their escape, and have not been recovered.-- There is strong ground of suspicion that a portion, if not all of the fugitives, fled in concert, and that they were aided by white confederates in crossing the river. The outrages thus inflicted on the owners, loudly demand redress; and the slaveholders of this region ought to devise for themselves some practical and efficient remedy.--Marysville Eagle
