FUGITIVE PIECES.––  Major Haynie, of Ouschita county, Ark., in a letter to the Van Buren Intelligencer, dated the 10th inst., says that 11 negroes escaped from his immediate neighborhood, and that a general stampede among the negroes was apprehended, if not something worse. The people had become somewhat alarmed, and had adopted measures of precaution, and were using every exertion to capture the runaways. It was thought that there was a concert of action among the slaves in that vicinity.
