STAMPEDE OF SLAVES.--On Saturday a number of slaves, belonging to various citizens of the district, obtained a covered wagon, under the pretense of going to the campmeeting in the adjoining county.--They departed. But have not returned, and the owners have reasons to believe that they have emigrated by the Underground Railroad. Some fifteen slaves are missing, most of them belonging in this city and county. Officers have been in search of the fugitives, but up to this time none have been recovered.--Washington Star, Aug. 25.
