STAMPEDE AND ARRESTS.––Three negro men belonging to Adam Trumbo, near Wyoming, Bath county, Ky., made their escape on Thursday night, each mounted on a horse. Arriving at a toll-gate beyond Flemingsburgh, which they could not pass, they abandoned their horses, and made their way to within four miles of the Ohio river, near Fee's Chapel, where they were arrested and secured about 9 o'clock yesterday morning. Five negroes from the lower end of Mason county took a sleigh ride a short time since and crossed the Ohio river. Neither the sleigh, horses, or blacks have been heard of since.––Maysville Eagle.
