The New England Anti-Slavery Tract Associat:on have issued a circular, announcing that they will supply the United States with Tracts, on the following plan: "During the coming year, it is proposed by the Association to issue fifty-two tracts, wrilten by fifty-two different men, whose talents will give them a character worthy the congideration of all the scholars and statesmen of our country. The eystem of town associations for the weekly and gratuitous distribuüon of these tracts, will disseminate them through all the free States, and the slave States also, provided they are willing to receive them. Provisions are arranged and depots are to be established which shall furnish tliem to every town between the St. Johns and the Missiseippi, at the same low price of$1 for 1 ,200 pages, er 5-6ths of a mili a page. To every one ín New England we ehall address our circular, to which is appended a Constitution and a subscription paper for a Town Tract Association. We hope this Consütution will be adopted by every town in the free States, and associations formed for the dislribution of these tracts, which may be readily procured frora the State depot, or its county branches. The location of these depota wiU be made known through the Emancipator as fast as they are established. As these fifty-two tracts will make a volume of valúa ble statistics, as well as powerful, concentral ed argument, we would recommend to those who receive them to preserve them for binding1. The first numbers of the series will be published sometime in December; and the different depots wil! be immediatcly furnished, lo supply orders from ibe eurrounding towns. Tract 1 wul contain the whole of that beautiful little work of Longfellow's - POKMS ON SlaVERY. EtlTlU BdíIRITT, Editorial Correspondent . - Worcesler. JULIUS L. CtAflKK, Correspondmg Secretary ,-Worcester. Joskph W. Aldkn, Publisher - Boston, Masachvselts." They recommend that Tract Societies be foTmed in every town, eacb member to contribute cnnually twenty-five cents for tracis for gratuilous circulation.05a Four slaves, piloís of Ocracoke, N. C. lately sailed north in master's boat till they carne ashore in a free State, and made their way to Canada. They were advised to take their master's boat by northern sailors, and it is supposed they obtained their notions of the propriety of such an act from Gerrit Smiths famous "Address to Slaves." One of the men had a notion of taking a voyage to South Carolina, in the same boat, to bring of some of his relatives. Who can teil th mischief that will result from Mr. Smith advice?
