Poking fun at Colonization


1.  The Colonization Society of Portland, Maine, which it has boastingly vaunted, contains 500 members, has never had a meeting since it was first formed, —and has presented $100 to the funds of the Parent Society; and this has been advanced by an individual member, in the name of the Society.

2.   The Anti-Slavery Society of Portland, Maine, which, as has been tauntingly asserted, contains but 10 members, has always held meetings from the time of its formation  —and has presented $100 to the funds of the New England Anti-Slavery Society, within a few weeks.  — Comment were idle.   VERAX
