For the last 10 or 12 days those of our citizens who were prevented from some cause or other from sojourning at the springs, and yet were determined to go somewhere, have been enjoying themselves at the Camp Meetings. Fights and other fancy scenes took place, and a general stampede of slaves followed. Three valuable slaves belonging to Mr. Johnson, of Montgomery, obtained permission to attend Camp and started for Canada. Whether they have reached the promised land is not yet known, as the late Canada papers in which the arrivals of such distinguished strangers are regularly published, have not yet printed their names.
