Excitement in Louisiana. --Says the Baton Rouge (La.) Gazette, of the 2d instant; "We are assured, on good authority, that a gang of runaway negroes, about fourteen in number, are depredating almost with impunity on the property of citizens living on the eastern side of the Comite river, in this parish. They have been frequently seen in squads; some of them armed with shot guns; and in one instance a gun was put to the head of a white man by one of four negroes who emerged from the bushes just as the former was in the act of securing one of their comrades. Two white men are with these negroes, both armed with double-barrelled guns, and doubtless are the instigators of their thieving and insolence.--An expedition is on foot to capture the whole party. If it succeeds, the white villains will get their reward. Of course, much excitement and apprehension exist in the neighborhood."
