OF THE

AFRICAN REPOSITORY,

AND

COLONIAL JOURNAL.

The deep and increasing interest which is felt in many parts of this country, on the subject of the efforts to colonize the free people of colour of the United States, on the African coast, has induced the Board of Managers of the Colonization Society to propose the establishment of a periodical work, which shall furnish the public with accurate information concerning the plans and prospects of their Institution; give a minute account of its operations, and of the condition and progress of the Colony; communicate any new and interesting intelligence which may be received, relating to the Geography, Natural History, Manners, and Customs of Africa; and admit into its

pages
such

essays as may be thought calculated to advance the interests of the Colony, or the cause of African Improvement, as well as select passages from authors who have already written on this subject; and important extracts from the Reports of such Foreign Associations as are making exertions to suppress the Slave Trade or relieve the Afri

can race.

CONDITIONS. I. The work will be published monthly, and comprise thirty-two 8vo. pages

in each number. It shall be equal in paper, and in the style of execu•

tion, to the Christian Observer. II. The price shall be two dollars a year, payable on the delivery of the first

number. III. Those who shall become responsible for six copies, shall receive a

seventh gratis. IV. All subscriptions, remittances, and communications for the Repository,

should be sent to R. R. GURLEY. Washington, March, 1827.

QPWe earnestly request our friends, who may receive this number, to exhibit it to neighbours and acquaintances, and to receive and transmit, as early as may be, the names of such as may be disposed to subscribe for the work.
