A LARGE NEGRO STAMPEDE.–– The Chicago Journal says that on Thursday evening, the 17th inst., the underground railroad arrived there with thirty passengers, five from the vicinity of Richmond, Va., twelve from Kentucky and thirteen from Missouri.––They are now all safe in Canada. The thirteen from Missouri were sold to go down the river, the very day they started. A stalwart six footer and a Sharp's rifle were the only guides.
