(Column 7)Summary: Reports that 1,165 "people of color" have applied to the American Colonization Society for passage to Liberia in the fall.
Origin of Article: Alex. GazetteFull Text of Article:
Eleven hundred and sixty-five people of color have applied to the American Colonization Society for passage to Liberia this fall. They consist of families of men, women, and children, "some mechanics, some farmers, most of them the better class of freedmen, who can read and write, and are intelligent and religious." Here then is the opportunity for the true friends of the colored people in this country to show their faith by their works. The American Colonization Society offers to send these people to the home of their fathers, to civilize and christianize Africa, and to secure their own future peace and happiness.
To furnish a comfortable passage and the customary support, house-room, land, &c., to these people for the first six months after landing in Liberia, sixty dollars per capita, or a total of forty thousand dollars are wanted. Who will help to provide for bearing these people to Africa? There is a voice of Providence in the cry of the descendants of Africa for help to reach their ancestral land which the friends of the colored man, to whom God commits property, will not turn away without the best of reasons. He can hope for but little, if anything, from those who would keep him here, for purposes of discord and mischief --but to his best and truest friends --he may turn with the hope that they will do all for him that they can. If the Southern people were able they would be liberal in their aid to the American Colonization Society.--Alex. Gazette

Full Text of Article:Ex-President Davis--Resolutions of the Mississippi Legislature
The trial of the Police Commissioners of Baltimore, before Gov. Swann, resulted, as every one who read the evidence for and against them suppposed, in deposing them and the appointment of new Police Commissioners by the Governor.
The new Commissioners took the oath of office and, armed with their commissions from the Governor, and a fruitless attempt to confer the with the old Commissioners, and finally made a demand for the Station Houses, Books, &c., in writing, which was met by a refusal to deliver them. The new commissioners then procured an office and commenced business by issuing an order to the police force of the city not to obey the orders of the old Police Commissioners, whereupon the new Commissioners and Sheriff were arrested as disturbers of the peace, on a bench warrant issued by Judge Bond, and, upon a refusal to give bail, were committed to jail.
A writ of habeas corpus, upon application by counsel, was granted by Judge Bartol, and served upon Wardens of the City Jail to produce the prisoners and show why they were detained in custody. The time allowed for producing the prisoners, under the writ of habeas corpus, being three days the Warden had not produced the prisoners in Court at last advices and it was supposed he would exhaust the limit before he did so, which would reach beyond Tuesday, the day of election, and thus secure another election under the Radical Commissioners, which is all they could desire. The Radicals have managed this affair with considerable skill, completely outwitting the new Commissioners, their friends and the law, and forcibly illustrating the statement of an eminent English Jurist, that "show him any law, and he would drive a coach and four through it."
