TOE MEMPHIS APPEALi SUNDAY. JUNE 9. 1880;
THE KECBQ1N THE NORTH
A 'W0U1N ' WHOSB MEMORY OF
FACTS IS CLEAR.
For What th North Fought No Dan
gar of Negro Domination The Anglo
Saxon of the North and South Have
To tho KHtor ot The Appeal:
Sir I got a little inspiration from your
editorial on "The Moving of tho Noro."
Tho wholo teaching of tbe South baa boon
that the North is a negro equalizer Hnd
would like now toseo tho negro dominant.
The aimple assertion ttint this is tulso, or
tho denial by ono person is no nrgumont
in th eyes of the mosses, Hut I would
like to recito a little history. In lSo'JlW I
was at school in that terrible Massaclm
setts, at an ago capable of understanding
tho political situation. I kept my eyes
oion and I will say right here that tbo
people of that Plato wera not In favor of
tho freo negro. All tbo nuolitionlsts-ijold
meetings in small bodies in privsto placos,
and bad for watchword, "No union with
lavery." Tliey wero tho original seces
sionists, and as such despisod by tbo ma
jority of tho North, lint tho outcome of
tho war was freedom to tbe negro, ami I
firmly boliovo that when an appeal Is
niado to tho Anglo-Saxon raco in tho
North that they will rexpond in a manner
littlo druauiod of by tho Southern wbito
1 would like to have tlie South look up
undor this present ltepttbllran administra
tion, ana relieve themselves oi an incubus
that they aro carrying, worse than tho old
man on Sinbad'a buck. 1 would likn to
teueh tbe South that tbore is help against
any African flood. It seem strangu to mo
that men can be tauulit to think that men
of tlioir own blood in tho North can Iw
ilovolJ of all reciprocal sentiment. One
visit to tbe North would convince the most
skeptical. The Irish club together, the
Jews the same; and why, tell mo, ran not
tho Anglo-iNKou. the dominant raco, bo of
one mind? They are and the only thing
that divides tliom la the Honey Kcpuu
lican imrtv and tli good old Huirar Democ
rncv. 1 grant that right Now it would
not do to lot slip the hold by democracy
tout wo have; but luir exchange Is no rob
Wy, and if the Anglofaiu South will
cl out the Anglo-Saxon North ngaiuit
their K)liticul elephant, I know the
North will see Ibein righted in re
gard to Africa's prod ucU. Au Anglo-Saxou
Congress, with sraken from all tbo M.itos
tvprt-aenuilive men of Hits great race-
would do more good than all the laws of
Congress, all the laws of Mates, wctiro po
litical freedom for our sous and put u
w hero we belong.
ily exiericnco is in dealing with tho
North, or talking with Northern xopln,
that "you ran do what you pinnae with the
nrgro, but don't touch this I'll Ion."
liiaalmae your minda, every ono of you,
that tho North want to ae the ntyro
dominant They have a regard for Hie
right of humanity, and the colored ninn
is a human, ami as such entitled to our
consideration; hut my a-opl havo built

selves judge of w hom shall nivive tlio

liberty that my lathers fought tor. And
