A Narrative of Wm. W. Brown, a fugitive slave, written by himself, is upon our table. It is a work of thrilling interest, and believing as we do, that every publication of this kind tells favorably upon public opinion, and tends to hasten the time when the slave shall be free from his bonds, we commend it to the perusal and patronage of our readers. Mr. Brown is an able, earnest advocate of the rights of his enslaved brethren, and is making, we are glad to know, a good use of his Freedom, to which he is indebted not so much to the ‘genius of our institutions, as to the swiftness of his heels’. – From the Christian Citizen.
