The slaves of Fauquier, Va. --It is said that there were 11,000 slaves in Fauquier county. Va., before the rebellion, about 5,000 of whom have left their masters and sought employment elsewhere.--Many of them remain in the county, but demand payment for their labor, and generally obtain it, the planters being compelled to accede to their demands or allow their crops to remain unharvested.
