A Slave Stampede.

We understand, that FOURTEEN NEGROES, male and female, belonging to Mrs. Pendleton, of this town, and hired out at different places in the county, run away on Saturday night last, to Pennsylvania. A reward of Fourteen Hundred Dollars is offered for their apprehension, and a number of persons, who do not "loath" the Fugitive Slave Law, are in hot pursuit of them.
