THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD. We are informed that two Virginia gentlemen passed up the Northern Central Railroad on Saturday, who stated that they were in pursuit of three slaves who had left the old Dominion via the underground railway. One of the Virginia papers says that ‘this institution appears to have been in successful operation last week. We hear of several persons who have lost valuable servants, and among them Mr. Humphrey of Richmond, and Mr. Massie of Alexandria.’ - Harrisburg Patriot.
