More "Millions" for the Abolition of Slavery.

Bills have been prepared and only await opportunity to be reported from the select committee on emancipation, appropriating ten millions of dollars for the abolishment of slavery in Maryland, one millions and a half for West Virginia, and four hundred and fifty thousand dollars for Delaware. The same committee has also agreed upon a bill to establish a board of emigration in connection with the War Department.
