Expelled negroes Go to Canada

Expelled Negroes Going to Canada  –  The Detroit Tribune states that a party of thirty negroes, expelled from the States of North Carolina by the infamous law reducing all free negroes to slavery or driving them from the state, crossed the river into Canada, the home of oppressed Americans, on Friday.  The Tribune remarks: — ‘This is Christian civilization in America today.  And presses are found in plenty to rejoice at this rankest act of injustice, to defend it and urge it forward.’
