Runaway Slaves.
Six slaves, belonging to Henry and John S Fiery, Esqrs., left on the “under-ground Rail Road” for the North, on Sunday the 30th ult. They have left good homes, and if we mistake not, they will wish themselves back again about the time they are compelled to rob the first hen-roost of their white confederates, to avoid starvation.
