THE AFRICAN REPOSITORY. We had thought of issuing the Repository for 1841 in monthly num. bers with covers. Several of our friends had expressed a desire to receive it in that form, but we find that a still greater number prefer its coming more frequently, and subject to newspaper postage only, which to the most distant subscriber, amounts to but 37 cents per year. In panaphlet form it would be about 90 cents. We have concluded, therefore, to continue it semi-monthly, and trust that it will be regularly mailed before the 1st and 15th of each month.

We shall continue to give the news from Liberia relating to the improvements, health, and general condition of the Colony, and such African news as may be interesting to our readers; together with the progress of Colonization effort in this country.

We solicit the friends of the cause to aid us by communications that will increase the value of the Repository. Colonization Societies will please send us copies of their reports, proceedings of their meetings, names of their officers, &c. We would especially request our agents and friends to give us a particular account of the foundation of new

societies, and hope many such may be formed by the ladies, who have over been among our most efficient benefactors.

We shall feel grateful to those friends who may discover articles or sentiments in the Repository to which they take exceptions, if they will point them out, and their communications shall be attended to.

We bave heretofore excluded all articles denouncing the Abolitionists, or discussing their principles, as well as those relating to slavery in the South. We shall continue to adhere to this rule.

It is not the business of the American Colonization Society, either to advocate slavery or denounce it, but to receive all those free colored men who may offer themselves as emigrants, and such slaves as may be emancipated, and willing to emigrate to Liberia. And although We believe that the abolition organization and effort in this country is an evil, social, moral, and political, yet we are convinced that the American Colonization Society will best fulfiller duty, by pursuing the even tenor of her way, and peacefully accomplishing the objects for which she was instituted.

By an extensive circulation of the Repository, the friends of the Society are kept advised of its operations. May we not appeal to all of them to aid in forwarding new subscribers who will pay in advance. Those who have taken the Repository for more than one year, without paying, will please forward their dues, or return the paper, unless they receive it gratuitously. It is difficult to call on all subscribers by an ayent, and when postmasters will forward the amount due, without cost to the subscriber, there is no apology for not paying.

COLONIZATION. Few benevolent Associations in any country have had to encounter greater difficulties in commencing and carrying forward their operations, than the American Colonization Society. Opposition and discouragement have met them at every step. Many at the South were apprehensive that Colonization was commencing war in disguise upon their institutions, and believed that any attempt to ameliorate the condition of any portion of the colored people, would tend to agitate ques

tions which could not be discussed without endangering our social • compact. Others ridiculed the idea of establishing a Colony of colored

men, denying to them the necessary ability to govern themselves. The scheme had also opposers from among those who wish to see all classes of men in our republic stand on the same platform. These claimed that the colored man could be elevated in this country, and that he ought not to emigrate to any other. Such were the prejudices, opposition and difficulties to be encountered, that it required the philanthropy of a Finley, the devotion of a Mills, the patriotism of a Madison, and the boldness and energy of a Clay, to induce confidence in the scheme, and commend it to the favor of the public. The very undertaking to plant a Colony in a foreign country involved serious difficulties. The coast of Africa was but little known in this country. Those who had visited that coast were generally slave traders, who revealed but few secrets from that hitherto dark region. The character of the people, the country, its diseases and its climate, had to be learned. It was most fortunate that the enterprise met with favor
