AFRICANS IN GEORGIA.
Our readers are informed that snnV'tnne since;
a number of Africans were illegally intro
duced into the state of Georgia, who were

and subsequently advertised for sale -The
succeeding article from the Gtorgia Journal
, of the llt! inst. says i ' '
The following. view'of the subject, it is le
'eved determined the Governor to decline" tho
sale of the Africans' which was to have takeu
plaee on the th inst.
These negroes baring been introduced into
the state contrary to the law of the Uuited
States, of Ihe 2d of March, 1807. which pro-,
hihits the importation of slaves into any port -or
place within the jurisdiction of the United
Stales, from and after the 1st of January, 1808,
were arrested from their owners by the Collee-'
tor of the port of S.t. Mary's, and by him deli

(J jvernor, in conformity with an act of the Le
gislature, passed the 19th of December, 1817,.

In the act of tha Legislature, it is declared,

The same law also provides, that if, pre
vious to the sale of any such persons of color, i
'be society for colonization of free persons of
color w.thin the United States,-will undertake .
to transport them to Africa, or any other place
which' they may procure as, a colony for free
persons of color, at the sole expense of said
society, and shall likewise pay to his excellen
cy the" Governor all expenses incurred by .the
iUte, since they have been captured and con- -demited,
his excellency the GovernoF Is author "
ised and requested to aid in promoting tha bene
volent views of saidsoeiety, in such manner aar
lie may deem expedient." i
A few days previous to the day of sale, the . ,
Deputy 'Marhal came forward, with an order
from the District Judge, to arrest them from
the State's Agent, and to keep- them subject -lo
the order of the Court. At tbc same time, the
Rev. Mr. Meade, Agent from the Colonization
Society, arrived, clothed with full power to
comply with the conditions of tha law1, and a- y
gain t transport them .to their native country.
Under" these circumstances, 'and believing ths t
the state could not fail to have a verdict rendec?
ed in her favour on a final trial of the caus3
now pending, and being earnestly deiirous to
promote, as mueh as possible, the humane and i
benevolent exertions of the society for their r
emiucipation, so far as it could be done consis
tent ly with justice to the claimants, and with
the high respect due to the order of ther Court,
the Governo determiued not to sell, but to hold
them in possession, until the final decree of the
Court should he known, and. upon their eon-
lemnati n as having been unlawfully inlroduc-

the law. it is believed that such a disposition
offhem will he made as to rebd-r'atfy future
expense very inconsiderable, aud probably t
obviate it altogether. - '
