THE NEGROES LEAVING.  We learn from the Rockingham, Va., Register, that on last Wednesday night, two weeks, there was a considerable stampede among the negroes of Pendleton county in that State. Z. Dyer, Esq., late clerk of the county, lost three; Cyrus Hopkins, Esq., two; and Elijah Stonestreet, one. About a year since, A.W. Dyer, of the same county, lost four of his most valuable slaves in the same way.
