Stampede of Slaves.

   On Saturday night about fifteen slaves left Washington, D.C., in a covered wagon under pretence of going to a camp-meeting, but as they have not since been heard from it is supposed they have made tracks for a free State. Officers have gone out in pursuit. Among the losers are Messrs. Linton, Randolph, Harbaugh and Isaac Scraggs.
