Price of Slaves. – A month ago we published the price of slaves then prevailing, viz: Young men ranging from $2,000 to $2,700, and young women from $2,000 to $2,500. There is now, we learn, an advance on these prices; all kinds of slaves commanding higher prices than ever before. Boys and girls and small negroes are proportionably higher than grown ones.
