A SLAVE STAMPEDE.––We understand that fourteen negroes, male and female, belonging to Mrs. Pendleton, of Hagerstown, and hired out at different places in the country, ran away on Saturday night last, to Pennsylvania. A reward of four hundred dollars is offered for their apprehension, and a number of persons who did not "loathe" the Fugitive Slave Law, are in hot pursuit of them.
P.S.––These Slaves were captured at Harrisburg and confined in the jail at that place.
