Runaway Negroes.

A man, two women and two children, slaves of Mr. George Shafer, and three men, slaves of Messrs. D. and H. Claggett, ranaway on Sunday night last. They were overtaken before they reached the Pennsylvania line, but made a stout resistance and succeeded in getting away. The pursuit was continued, but we have not learned whether they were again overtaken or not. They took two horses and a buggy from the Livery Stables of Mr. Lewis Snider of this town
