NEGRO EXODUS.––The Washington Star says:

   "Last Saturday, several slaves owned in and around Washington, left home by permission to join their colored friends at the camp-meeting in Montgomery county, who have not since been seen or heard from.––Others disappeared from their owners' residences here on the same day. Diligent search having been made, both at the camp and elsewhere, it is probably [probable] that they have joined in a stampede to the free States."
