ESCAPE OF SLAVES.—We learn, upon reliable authority, that, within the past few days, a number of slaves, from Kentucky, have escaped into this State, and are now on their way to Canada, via the underground railroad. Four belonged to Harvey Williamson, of Union County; five belonged to Joseph Harris, of Bracken County, and two were owned in Boone Co . They came to this city, by taking passage on a float down Licking River and thence to a point half a mile below Sedamsville, where they came on shore, and, by the aid of friends in this State, they got off to Canada. Messrs. Williamson and Harris were in the city yesterday, in search of their slaves, and went up the railroad last evening in pursuit of them.
