    THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD.—An Association, composed of the colored people of Canada West, the object of which is to erect a depot at Sandwich for the reception of passengers over the Underground Railroad from the Slave States, and the more efficiently to aid those who prefer freedom to slavery in their efforts to reach Canada, has been formed. The Association, which is to be called the Agricultural, Mechanical and Educational Association of Canada West, is composed principally of those who, for several years, have been conductors and depot agents on the Underground Railroad. They have procured at Sandwich thirty acres of ground, on which they desire to build houses for the use of those just arrived from slavery, until they can procure employment. They have also opened a free school for their benefit. –Detroit Advertiser
