THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD. – A correspondent of the Baltimore Sun writes from Berryville, Clark county, Va., as follows:

A report reached here the other day from the most reliable source, that a slave (a man) belonging to R. M. T. Hunter, Senator from Virginia, was kidnapped and conveyed in the underground railroad to Canada. Strange as it may seem, the kidnapper was a Northern lady, a member of a distinguished family there. The [illegible] of this lady and the whole story will be made public in a few days. An old college-mate of Mr. Hunter, a resident of this place, wrote him yesterday for the full particulars of the extraordinary affair.
