Stampede Frustrated.––Several slaves in the neighborhood of Lagrange, Texas, recently made arrangements to run away and proposed to Mexico. They were to have left on a Monday, but one of them, in order to have an early start, made tracks on Sunday. He was pursued, and when taken confessed the whole plan. He stated that the negroes were all supplied with guns and ammunition, and were prepared to force their way.
