Of this sum, $13,221 70. has been applied to
the tnnsportatiiin of emigrants, the remainder
to various purposes of tho society. There
havo bfcn sent out during tho year, seven ves
sels with in ull, G5d emigrants. One of theso
went especially under the auspices of the Ma
ryland society. Of theso emigrants, 403 were
freo born 225 emancipated, and 38 had pur
chased their freedom. As usual, tho great
majority of tho transported were from tho
slavo holding states. Tho Keport contains
some high encomiums upon tho character and
conduct of the emigrants, and speaks exulting
ly of what they have already accomplished, as
well as of what they promiso for the future.
Tho report says t
" Wc moy also remark that Liberia is not
only one of tho most rapid, but sho is also ono
of tho most interfiling germs of national
growth, which the world has ever seen. The
feeling which animates tho great majority of
her citizens is worthy of all commendation.
They potscss a courage, and a self dovotion
which havo carried them through many trying
places, and still givo promiso of future 'im
provement. Despondency has no homo in
their hearts. Thoy have breasted, with nnblo
resolution, tho various obstacles which have
been thrown in their way. When their means
wore small and their resources inadcriuato to
their emergencies, they have uiado personal
sacrifices, and performed additional service.
In tho progress of communities as of indi
viduals, interest and benevolence, aro closely
allied. Emphatically has this been illustrated
in tho personal history of the earlier and the
lutor emigrants to Liberia and in Liberia itself.
They have secured the highest benefits to them
selves; at the same time they are the pre
eminent benefactors of their race. They hare
come into the possession of a substantial In
heritance; thoy have eome also a the ack
nowledged harbingers of good to a benighted
continent. They are making positive advance
ment in personal Industry, intelligence and
wealth, and they are by the very same process
developing the agricultural and commercial re
ourcss of the country. They are acquiring
increased ability to act for and govern them- '
selves to build up the Institutions of education '
and religion ) with theso very elements of cul
ture, and rudiments of Christianity, they prove
themselves Ihe best missionaries, tho most ef
ficient of tcsehers, In the heathen, by whom
they are surrounded. They are thus, amid all
their perplexities and discouragements, dis.
charging a high duty to themselves and their
raco, and winning undying honors, as the ben
efactors of Africa. They re-possessed and
and have begun to regenerate the land of their
progenitors, to repair her broken snd decayed
fortunes, and ro-kindlcd her long extinguished
"Tho establishment and growth of such a
community, on that dark continent, such a
model of a ration, is an order of things wholly
new to Africa, and gives promise of future
greatness, on which tho world may well look
with admiration I "
Such is the character of the colored popula
tion who emigrnto lo Lihoiia, according lo tho
report. Mr. Everett as our readers know, ably
vindicated tho character of tho race on that
occasion. Tho Itcv. Charles II. Heed, from
Virginia, who followed Mr. Everett, could not
however refrain from uttering a sentiment of
disparagement of this population among us, a
sentiment which more than any other, has dis
tinctively characterised the colonisation move
ment from tho first. Tho ltcv. gentleman
however very complacently set aside all sup
position of guilt on the part of any human
agency, and places tho wholo at tho door of
Providence. He affirms their inferiority, and
the conseiiue.it obligation of supervision and
control on the part of tho moro fortunate and
gifted race, and on this bases tho duty and
propriety of Colonization.
This however may be said of this report, as
a whole, that no other of its thirty-flvo prede
cessors, has even been as unobjectionable as
this, in tho two particulars for which tho soci
ety hss been most severely consured by Abo
litionists, vis: its vilification of tho colored
people who choose to remain in this country,
and the absurd and ridiculous idea that coloni
zation is the only remedy for slavery, or indeed
that il is n remedy at all. This report h is this
hitler question utterly alone, while upon tlie
former, Mr. Everett uttered some truthful sen
timents. We look upon this tact as un encour
aging luaik of nnti-slui-ery' progress. We

a barrel of whiskey was smuggled into their

to take measures for its expulsion. After a
public meeting and two visitations of tho tav
