“U. G.” RAILROAD STATISTICS. – Mr. C. S. Spencer (Rep.) of the New York Assembly, in a speech relating to the “personal liberty bill” now before that body, said he had in his hand a list of fugitives who had gone through Albany between June 1st, 1858, and Jan. [1,?] 1859, on their way from the slave States to freedom. They were 176 in number – one of them was a slave of a U. S. Senator; one of them was the property of a deacon of a Baptist church in Virginia.
This is making pretty fair progress, but does not look like the immediate [extinction?] of slavery. Supposing there were but 3,000,000 slaves in the country one year ago, this leaves a balance of 2,900,824 colored passengers to be provided for, making no allowances for natural increase in the meantime.
