Freight on the Underground Railroad. - Since our last report we have received at this depot 21 persons, all within the last ten days. First came two men from Missouri; then 13 from Covington Ky., five of whom escaped from the Mayor of that city; then came four from Kentucky; then two more up to this date. The Christmas Holidays will bring us another fine lot. - Since the above was written we have had the pleasure of taking by the hand a fugitive, from Louisville, Ky., who had made money enough to buy himself, but came to the hasty conclusion, just a few hours before he started, not to part with his money in that way, but rather to spend it in Canada for a farm. - Detroit Free Dem., 14th.
