The Great Negro Poetess of the Last
Sketch ot the Life of one of the Most
Remarkable Characters of American
History Her Wonderful Talent but
Phillis Wheatley the Negro poetess
was brought from Africa in a slave ship
and sold In a Boston Slave Market in
1761 to a kind lady Mrs. Wheatley. As
she sat with a crowd of slaves in the
market caked save apiece of cloth tied
about her loins her modest intelligent
bearing so attracted Mrs. Wheatley that
she selected her in preference to all
others. Her selection proved a good one
for with clean clothing and careful atten
tion Phillis soon began to show a great
desire for learning though onlyeight^ ears
old this young African, whose race.all the
learned men said were incapable of
culture, within little over a year's time
so mastered the English language as to
be able to read the most difficult parts of
the bible intelligently. Her achieve
ments in two or three years drew the
leading lights of Boston to Mrs. Wheal
tey's house and with them Phillis talked
and carried on correspondence concern
ing the popular topics of the day. Every
body either knew or had heard of
Phillis. She became skilled in Latin
and translated one of Ovid's stories
which was published in English maga
zenes. She published many poems in
Euglibh, including one address to George
Washington. Phillis was emancipated
at the age of 21. Soon after that her
health iailed and she was sent to Europe
where she created even a greater sensa
tion than in American men and women
in the very highest stations of the old
world were wonderstruck and industri
ously attenthe to this humble born
African girl. While Phillis was awaj
Mrs. Wheatley became sick and longed
to see Phillis who was sent for and ar.
rived just before Mrs. Wheatley died.
Phillis married a man named Peters.
He, far interior to her in most every
way, became jealous of the favors shown
her by the best of society, grew cruel.
Phillis did not long survive his harsh
trea ment and she died greatly beloved
and mourned by two continenis Dec. 5,
1784, at tbe age of 31.From Johnson's

We are pained to notice the growing
indifference of those who are placed at
the head of affairs in the Colored Orphan
Asylum and the lack of regard for law
and order among those who attend the
annual gatherings there. No doubt this
indiscriminate |mixing up caused the
death of George Tyler a promising young
man just 20 years old who was cruelly
shot down within any provocation what
ever by an assassin who seemed to have
murder in his heart no matter who
would be the victim. But we trust the
law will take its course and he will be
placed where he will meet his fate.
While we so deeply sympathize with
the bereaved family, yet we could not
but admire the perfect submission of
the mother who was so forgetful of the
loss she had sustained in the joy she felt
at his conversion before his death.
What a beautiful faith was her's, that
could look beyond tbe clouds and feej
that her loss was his eternal gain.

day and a musical concert at night, un

The barbacue was quite a success There

other amusements, all of which were

To the Editor of THE APPEAL.During
the Prohibition Convention in Cincin
nati, Dr. Grandison, a Colored delegate
from North Carlina, was refused dinner
and otherwise mistreated in tbe Gibson
House. The Inter-Ocean made capital
of this, by saying that the Prohibitionists
paid no attention to Dr. Grandison's
treatment. This was not true. Both in
the columns of The Union Signal and in
a personal letter to me, Miss Willard
says: Our folks in Cincinnati passed
resolutions of strong condemnation of
tbe hotels that illtreated our Afro-Amer

Tuesday morning July 5, at 6 o'clock, die aged and in Harry's own words,
was the date of a rather notable event
in Afro-American society, the marriage
of Miss Alice Albertine Sizemore to Mr.
Thomas G. Childress, at the residence of
the bride's uncle Mr. David A. Robin
son, Rev. Dr. Potter being the officiating
clergyman. The invited guests were
only the relatives of the parties and a
few particular friends, among whom
were the following: Revs. Geo. Robin
son, A. J. Russell, Lewis Johnston and
ladies, Prof. J. C. Corbin, Dr. J. R. Pow
land, S. J. Hollensworth and ladies and
Mr. Wiley Jones. The contracting par
ties are both graduates of the Branch
Normal College and both have been for
some years teachers in the institution.
Perhaps there are no two young people
in tbe community more highly and de
servedly esteemed for high moral char
acter, amiable qualities, correct deport
ment, than the contracting parties in
this case, and they enter into their new
relations accompanied by many prayers
for their future welfare. The newly
married couple left on the afternoon
