A Slave Stampede occurred at Washington, D.C., a few days ago. Over a dozen negroes, male and female, having received permission to go to a camp meeting in Montgomery county, Md., embraced the occasion to seek a more permanent camp in Canada, among Col. Prince's constituents, no doubt attracted by his representations of the Elysian laziness up there.
