i9 July, 160, it shallt be unlawful for any free negro,
. or ntmulatto, io be found in this State, under any
Spretence whatsoqvar: and every free negro, or mt
the 1 latto, so found may be indicted in any county
per'' where'lound, or in any adjoining county, and on
rlts conviction, shall be sold into absolute slavery.
The Sheriff of the proper county shall sell such
negro, or mulatto, at the door of the courthouse of
- said county, for cash, after suchb notice as the
court shall direct, and shall pay the nett proceeds
of sale into the treasury of the couity where the
'of indictment was found.
the Sc. 2. Be it furtherenacte( That If any person
Al. ihall, by pretending to be owner Or by any other
mnu, caendeavor to shield or protect sty free negro
or mulattO against the provisions-of this act, such
person so offending shall be fined in any sum not
exceeding one tiousand d ;Qtrimprldoned not

le lied not exeeedingrbe thsakld dollars. And
to such slave may be indicted and sold a$ -free negro t

Sec. 0. Be itensxaed, That free negroe and-mu

' cofug to the conrmus of 1850- there r
were' 98'i e Ye negfroes inthe State, their
number hh diminished during the.
precedin °'3years more than four: hunl
dred. At.i me enumeration there were a
809,8178 slvr, making the proportion of
free tdegp -rves as one to- more than
three hundr - The census shows also
that 640 of these free negroes were born
bi'lpsissippi and all' of the balance
except thirty-five were born.in some other tI
I prrtions of the'United States. .
proposed act seems to be somashbat
objItionable on two groiinds. If free

SThereis dibhing 'equitable in thus forcing t

Again,it is not by their own fault or the
neglect tht these negroes are free. I -e Wig
evil is chiefly the result of the weakness.
l. and milt4ken sympathy of those who
emancipated them or the shaveA froai'
.whom they'aro desectdjd, as well as of
the Legisla:i tre-who p~rmitted such folliesa t
to be perpetrated. Emancipation ties
