Free Negroes expelled from Arkansas

At a late session of the Arkansas Legislature an act has been passed which gives free negroes of that State the alternative of migrating before January 1, 1860, or of becoming slaves!!!!  The article also indicates that large numbers of free negroes from Arkansas have arrived in Cincinnati and have been welcomed there by a committee of ten appointed by colored people of the city.  (Liberator, January 13, 1860)
