Something Wrong.

We mentioned in our last, that fifteen Negroes had absconded from their masters in this County, on last Saturday night, and we have since been informed that two more of Mr. Dall’s Negroes runaway on Monday night There is evidently a secret influence at work in this County, which, if not dis covered and frustrated, will, ere ten years elapse, effect a total abolition of Slavery.

Some of our neighbors of the free States are determined to rob us of our slaves at all hazards ; and hence, it behooves every friend to the laws of this State, and the rights of his fellow citizens, to be vigilant, and the officers of our County should be especially active.
