TEE SOUTHERN NEGRO.
WIDELY-DIVERGENT VIEWS HELD BY
THREE CLASSES OF WHITES.
The Colored Man "la a Very Imitative
Animal" "Has an Original Genius"
" Has a Native Capacity Equal to That
of the -White."
"Signers an't got no sens3 naturally all
they know they sort o' pick up from
white foils. Then it sort o' stews up ia
their heads an' they git it out in their way,
and you all call it bis nigger sense."
This cracular statement by a native with
whom I rode on the Richmond t Dam ills
road suss up the real opinion of the mass of.
uneducated southerners. They are person
ally liberal, friendly to all men, and kind to
tlie colored people; but they are skeptical
about the results of general education. And
it is a striking proof of the natiie liberality
of the fo Jtlirons that they arc practically
unamimous in favor of popu'nr education,
despite their wide divergence of views as to
the result Kach maintains that the
roault will justify his own opinion, but
nil want to mo tho experiment fully and
fairly tried. After talcing with 100 men in
.Virginia and many in orth Carolina, I
sum up that the south has three opinions, as
WHAT OXE CLASS MAINTAINS.
Ono class maintains that all tho progress
so far nud4 by the colored southron (and
they admit it is great) is simply the result
of toa&cious or unconscious imitation. Tho
negro, they say, is a very imitative animal;
he is surrounded by a progressive white
ropulatioo, and the attrition of a free soci
ety forces him along. And in support of
their theory thy point to tbe.-o suggestive
facts: That all or nearly all tho noticeable
progress of the colored people is in the white
states and counties, where the negro can not
nil: or take the innitiativo, tut follows the
lead of tlie white majority; while in the
black counties one must take sight to so
that he moves at alL They point to tho de
graded condition of the colored men in tho
black towns aud tho black suburbs of white
towns, and most of all to tho sea islands of
South Corolina and a tew other districts
where the negro is monarch of aliUesur
ioya There, tboy ask mo to observe, he is sta
tionary or retrograding; his religion is run
ning down to a sort of transplanted fetich
km, his industry is fitful and uuorganize.1,
and Lis morality consLU in not getting
caught They also assert with vehement
emphasis, that every "smart nigger in the
Unilud fetaies is a miscegene generally half
white or inoro and running over the long
list of talented colored men from Douglass,
I Kingston and Turner to I'inchback and
Williams, the defy me to point to ono tal
ented man in tho nation who vtas not some
Caucasian blood in him. The reported pro
gress in high central Africa, they say,
proves nothing, or rather it confirms their
view, for that is an Arab and Mohammedan
civilization. Imposed upon tho negroes by
conquest; and, what is more, thoso are not
negroes of the caste f i om which our slaves
come. In short they maintain that all this
boasted progress, absolutely all of it, is tho
result of imitation and miscegenation.
A much smaller class maintains that the
negro has an original genius and a capacity
for civilization which i developing in Af
rica without attrition, and much faster in
this country with it. Thoy concede his
presmt inferiority to the v. hite, but think
a good deal of it dua to shivery. They have
inuiti to My of a general law of develop
ment by irtue of which every race of man
lias been onco on top or is to be, just as
every dog has his day; and as the negro has
not had his day, it is to come. While he
now is, aud may long remain, inferior to tho
white, yit wo can not say what
cro the sources .of civilization. We
can nut explain why a jioople long stagnant
suddenly begin to progress, yet such has
been the cas3 with other races, and will be
with tho negro.
CLIMATn AKI) CIVILIZATION'.
They incline to the view that climate is
fclowly oli-aging tho race; that even tho
full blmal is not as black or as prognstlious
as be was a century ago, aud that in time
civilization will bleach him to a degree not
now coacoivod of, with a corresponding
rcctiflcatioj of tho facial angle." When
thoy grow confidential, men of this class
hint at mi-crgenation and the final nlsoriH
tioa of the colored people into tho great fu
ture American. Hut as a rule they keep
such fancies to themselves, except in talk
There is, however, strange as it may seem
a small class of native southrons who main
tain that til-' American negro now ha a na-
the capacity iual to that of the average
white; that st has been repressod by slavery
and substvjuent forces, but when tho press
ure is re:noed it rebounds with an elasticity
that ca. rica l be negro forward faster than
the white. They deny eiuphati ally that
tho white majority operated us on impulsive
force on tho blacks; ou tho contrary, they
say it is rvprcsMe, that it makes the negro
feel inferior, lowers his self esteem, and so
retards him. 1 hey deny that the negro is
retrograding un the ya islands and in the
"bottoms" inhabited entirely by that race,
and claim that he is progressing there much
faster than do the "mean w bites" of the
sand-hill country. They sneer at tho oft
quoted examples of Hayti and Guiana, main
taining that the so-called negroes there ore
nothing but mongrels sprung from a
-plaj ed out rnco of Trench and Spanish
indole on tho ono side, and the worst possi
ble black tribes on the other without room
or liberty to de elop. If. tbey say, the orig

NEGRO LABOR IN THE SOUTH.
the Colored TYo-:lngman Toll.
Lives, Loves and Is Happy.
Now, look at the south with its negro
labor. Except in Texas there ore no strikes
here, cor are there likely to be. When you
study tho negro and see how cheaply he can
live, you can understand why. With one
day's work he can get a whole week's
rations, viz.: One ind of corn meal,
threo pounds of ba - and a quart of mo
lasses, costing in all JZ cents cash. If he
raises sweet potatoes oa a little patch of
ground the size of a city lot, the luscious
(Jeorgia yam makes his menu sumptuous.
If he now and then "picks up" ins nover
Steals") a chicken, or some eggs, no Kinsley
diner enjoys his repast half so wo'd, and if
to all this be adds a scrub cow, costing ti,
his fare is simply princely. If ho marries
(there are positively no old maids among
the blacks), the woman takes in washing,
goes out scrubbing, etc, and more than
earns her own living, so that the pickanin
nies can go to the colored school, if there
is oae near them. If he 4oes not like to
work by the day, it does not take him long
to earn a mule and a plow. Then he can
lease land and cultivate thirty acres of
cotton, paying two lialcs (worth now about
$10 each) for ground rent Insuchacaso
ho genorally runs in debt for his supplies
while he is making his crop, and pays two
prices for them, too, but when tho cotton is
sold, if Lo has nothing left over, or even
comes out in debt, ho doesn't go and shoot
himself. Debt is one of the luxuries of
civilization. He Las had the satisfaction of
being Ids own master, anyhow.
Some few get ahead in the world, own
their own farms, and livo like white folks,
but the mas3 live as I have described them
a rollicking, happy-go-lucky race, spending
as they go. Give tbem enough to eat, so
cial enjoyments, a chance to sing and shout
at a camp-nr.e:ting or a "hoo-down dance,"
and thoy are the jolliest people imaginable.
"But you say nothing of the cost to them
of fuel, shelter and clothing!"
Xo, the genial climate here makes theso
things hardly worth mentioning. Outside
the large cities fuel is everywhere, tho land
lord furnishes them n board shanty, or a
log cabin free, and ttey wear the cast-off
clothing of their bet tela If their raiment
becomes an intricate "thing of threads and
patches," what do they carol They are
just as happy. There is, you see, nothing
of the conspirator about the negro laborer.
He has no such fierce desire for work as to
wish to kill those who want to do it He
can hang over a fence a half a diy and see
others work and even cheer them on by his
joVes and guffaws with infinite relish. It
you dismiss him you don't hurt his feelings
in tho least Ho is liable to quit work for
you any day, unless personally attached to
you, and so is oven with you. As long as
ha can II vo by working one-sixth of his
time he has no fear of being oppressed by
1 Alt to himself,how-ever,ho is apt to 1j9 lazy.
Solitary labor to him is something dread
ful. Hut let him work in a gang give him
the enthusiasm of numbers an.l with proper
fujurintendenca and discipline he becomes

his needs, that is to lio found eitLer in Kur

MEXICO'S PEASANT GIRL
FASCINATING PICTURESQUENESS OF
THE MEXICAN MUCHACHA.
The Feminine Representative of a Bo
zaantie Kace Her Simplicity of Cos
tume Sly Coo.oetUsb.nese Married and
a Housekeeper SUM as a Cook.
In the more unfrequented portions of this
republic ths peasant girl is seen in all her
primitive simplicity. As the lumbering
stage-coach, with its dozen passengers,
slackens up at the adobe gate of some
hacienda, and the driver shouts his "Buenos
Dias!" or words of greeting, the first to issue
from the gray-walled hacienda is a Mexican
muchachx True to the vein of cariosity
which forms a fiber of the feminine heart
erer since the day that curiosity led Mother
Eve to taste tho forbidden fruit, the much
acha must sea who are the new arrivals.
She stands at the great gate of the
hacienda shyly watching the newcomers.
She is but a developed child; simple, pict
uresque, content; one whose face is not
freckled, whose limbs are not attenuated
and never know the munnrjing of a stock
ing. Her hair is not golden; her feet are
bare, and the two long braids of jetty hair
falling behind are caught at the ends with
the inevitable Lit of bright ribbon. When
speaking she generally catches the braids
and flings them over her breast and her
brown, bare shoulders. She wears no Pomp
adour, no Grecian coil, and no bangs, but
her hair, parted in the middle, is as glossy
and block as the famous atzabatche of her
native hills. She wears only a short skirt,
and that intimate, low-cut vesture of white
texture and scant pattern so well known
and reldom mentioned, which hangs sus
pended from her nut-brown shoulders, and
is caught inside the skirt before it is gathered
in at the waist. She is entirely unconscious
of a want of further clothing.
RErilEbEXTATIVE OF A ItOMAmC BACK
Among the different types of women in
America nono is more unique than the
Mexican muchacha; for she Is a woman
governed rather by the characteristics of a
race than by the shackles of education,
coquettish from instinct, graceful because
natural. Tho traveler remembers well a
creature who watched him with less of in
quisitive curiosity than sly coquettishnes in
thoso very black eyes. Bat beyond the
mere attraction of her glances are the asso
ciations which environ that creature, i-ho
is the representation of a romantic race
whos.; civili7ati'n, coeval with the palmiest
days of ilgyptand Persia, partake strangely
cf tho Orient. I Jko her sister on tho Ganges,
the Nile, and the Euphrates, sha makes her
tortillas or unleavened bread; sho carries
water on her bead as gracefully as Rebecca,
and spins liko PeneIoe.
But her race has bent bIow the fluttering
of a croii emblazoned flag, which, wherovtr
it has gone, has left behind it a trail of demo
tion. It was beneath that Ca-lilian Hag
that the native American woman becauu
Spanish in the olden time of strength and
conquest; and unchanged in manner, a
pearance, or taste, sho has acquired the new
characteristic coquetry so essentially
Spanish. While the pretty oval fa.o, the
bright black eyes, aud the quick, glib
touguo of the Mexican muchacha is tho
same as it was 5J0 or 1,000 years ago, sbu
has attained other characteristics brought to
her by the chivalric soldiers of Cortez.
