Escape of Slaves. - We learn upon a 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 belonging to Harvy Williamson, of Union county, five belonging to Joseph Harris, of Bracken county, and two owned in Boone county. 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. - Cin. Enq.
