Highly Interesting from Rochester.
STAMPEDE AMONG FUGITIVE SLAVES––ENTHUSIASTIC RECEPTION OF LOLA MONTES––CANAL ENLARGEMENT MEETING, ETC.
Rochester, May 13, 1852.
Warrants have been issued to-day for the arrest of several fugitive slaves in this city. Three slaves are known to have been in the city yesterday; but they are believed to have taken a sudden departure by the underground railroad, and there is little prospect of any arrest of either of the parties for whom warrants have been issued.
Lola Montes appeared here, to-night, before a crowded and highly respectable audience. She was enthusiastically applauded. She has got a strong abolition influenced to contend against her; but will, a sin the matter of the Jesuits, overcome it.
The Canal enlargement meeting of the democrats was well attended last evening. A string of resolutions were reported and laid on the table for an adjourned meeting. Speeches were made in favor of the enlargement, and pledging a hearty support to any constitutional measure.
