Facts Of Slavery




FREIGHT ON THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD. - Since our last report we have received at this depot 21 persons, all within the last ten days. First can two men from Missouri then thirteen from Covington, Kentucky, five of whom escaped from the Mayor of that city; then came four from Kentucky; then two more up to this date. The Christmas holidays will bring us another fine lot.

Since the above was written we have had the pleasure of taking by the hand a Fugitive from Louisville, Kentucky, who had made money enough to buy himself, but came to he hasty conclusion, just a few hours before he started, not to part with is money in that way, but rather to spend it in Canada, for land. - Voice of the Fugitive, January 14th .
