Slavery in MARYLAND—

In the Maryland House of Delegates, Jan. 16th, it was on motion of Mr. Johnson,

Ordered, That the committee on the colored population be instructed to inquire into the propriety and practicability of designating some future day, beyond which all slaves who may be born in this State after that period, shall be free upon arriving at a given age, and upon condition not to be permitted to remain in this State; but shall be removed to Africa or some other place of safety beyond the limits of the United States, as may be provided for by law, and make report to this House.
