Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 584 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 1.2in.Excerpt from A Practical View of the Present State of Slavery in the West Indies; Or, an Examination of Mr. Stephens Slavery of the British West India Colonies: Containing More Particularly an Account of the Actual Condition of the Negroes in Jamaica; With Observations on the Decrease of the Slaves Since the Abolition of the Slave Trade, and on the Probable Effects of Legislative Emancipation; Also, Strictures OnThe Legislature of Jamaica having, in December last, passed a Consolidated Slave Law, which provides in some important instances, in favour of the Slave Population of that Island, measures of protection and of extended rights; and, in other instances, gives the requisite sanction of Law to what was before established merely by general practice, we have the authority of Mr. Barclay for annexing to his book that law, as it has been, in Jamaica, printed, with references to repealed enactments. We also add an extract from the Code Rural of Haiti containing those clauses, which may be usefully compared with the Jamaica Law. The fidelity of the translation of these extracts may be ascertained by comparing them with the original Code, recently published by Ridgway, from a copy received, under unquestionable authority, from Paris, and which will be found exactly to coincide with that which will soon be printed under authority of Parliament.
