HIS -KCTURB IN BAI.TIMOBB.
n Baltimore, on Monday eveniDg,
derick Douglass delivered a lecture on
San Domingo, before a large audience,
balf of whom were white. The exer-
Im commenced with prayer by the Rev.
. Denniaon, (white,) one of the editors
the Washington New Era, who, among I
ler things, returned thanks to God that 1
ngress had performed the great deed on
i last day of its session, (tbe passage of
i Ku-Klux bill,) and invoked the
mighty to provide strong hands and
mt hearts to carry out the provisions of
that great crowning act of the session.
The lecturer of the evening, Mr. Frederick
Douglass, was then introduced, and spoke
upwards of two hours and a half.
He said he had heretofore been in the
habit of speaking extemporaneously, but
as this lecture was on an important sob
#t —one engrossing the minds of all men
md as he designed it somewhat as his
report on the late commission to Saa Do
mingo, he had put his thoughts on paper.
He was in favor of annexation, but as that
subject was do longer a new one, it would
be difficult for him or any one else at this
day to say aught that was new. As to
« propriety, every one had a right to his
n opinion—he loved a free expression
opinion, and all men, especially the
ored, Bhould carefully canvass every
blic measure. The colored race was no
longer chattels, but men and citizens, with
all the rights and privileges of men, able
to appear at the ballot-box as well as the
cartridge-box, and also, when properly
qualified, to sit in the jury-box. There
fore, all should endeavor to qualify for the
new state opened to the race. He rejoiced
to see white men well informed, and at the
same time he desired to see the colored
man but little behind his white brother.
He regretted to see Charles Sumner, one
of the brightest statesmen of the age, dif
fer with the President on the question of
annexation. Mr. Sumner had done more
than any man living for the colored race,
and he was still largely in their interest,
but be should consider tbat there waß a
wide difference between the present time
and twenty years ago. Then the lecturer
bitterly opposed the annexation of any
more territory, for the Bimple reason tbat
extension of territory meant extension of
slavery. He and his party opposed the
annexation of Canada because at tbat time
that province was a convenient place to
visit when the colored man of the slave
States desired to travel. They opposed
annexing Cuba and Mexico, because that
would have been an extension of slavery ;
but now the great stumbling-block being
removed, they were in favor of extending
the protecting arm of this country in every
direction.
Thousands upon thousands from the
European countries were coming here
every year, and why uot admit the hand
ful of Dominicans who desire to become
citizens of the great Republic. Mr. Doug
lass said he went to San Domingo to see
and hear, and here came in the remarkable
fact that a colored man should have been
selected as one of the commissioners. Tbe
very man who had been snubbed on board
of steamboats and railroad cars on account
of his color, had dined with the command
er of a United States frigate and with the
other members of the commission and those
attached to it, and had been their daily
companion for weeks. Things have
changed wonderfully, but still the fools
were not yet all dead, although many of
them were improving.
Of all the West India islands San Do
mingo was the largest, richest and most
beautiful, embracing au area of 27,000
square miles, with a summer lasting all
the year round, and with mountains cov
ered with the richest verdure and the most
valuable of woods. He said one of the
principal questions asked bim by the col
ored people on his return was, "what do
the people out there eat ?" and he then pro
ceeded to narrate the products of the soil,
&c. Tbe great difficulty with the people
of San Domingo was that nature had done
too much for them, and it was a truism
that where nature does all man very rarely
does anything. He had seen and talked
with men engaged in sawing hard wood in
the sun, and they were contented and hap
py, and enjoyed the beat of health. It was
all nonsense to say tbe climate was too hot.
One of tbe pleasant incidents of his
trip was meeting at Samana a colony of
colored people who he had seen depart
from Baltimore forty-seven years ago.
Six of the original number are still living
at a ripe old age; but with their descend
ants and the descendants of those deceased
the colony now numbers more than six
hundred. Although these people lived
alongside of the Spanish Catholics, they
still maintained their old Methodist re
tton, and had tbeir own church and
He then went on to speak of the morals
the people. During a three weeks'
iy in San Domingo city he had seen but
one drunken man, and be was an Ameri
can, and but one street difficulty, and that
between a colored policeman and one of
the crew of the Tennessee. He spoke of
the colleges and public and private schools,
remarking that he witnessed a lady teach
ing a Bchool of children and smoking a
cigar at the same time. The lecturer con
cluded by vindicating the course of the ad
ministration in the San Domingo matter,
and claiming that the people of the islaud
most have the protection of the United

How Gen. Faidherbe Got His Wife.
Gen. Faidherbe was formerly Governor of
Senegal, and was at one time much an
noyed by the continual attacks of a certain
African chief who controlled a band of
warriors. At last he took the chieftain
prisoner, and refused to let him go until be
left sufficient hostages for his future good
behavior. The chieftain, to prove his
good faith beyond a doubt, left his young
son and daughter in the hands of bis con
queror. These Faidherbe treated with
every possible kindness, and gave them
every educational advantage afforded by
the colony. When be left Senegal, the
Bon was returned to his father, but the
daughter became tbe wife of tbe ex-Gov- I
ernor. Madame Faidherbe is said to be
intellectual and refined, of elegant man
ners, and fit to grace any society.

An Oregon man drank tbirty-two gal
lons of lager-beer last Saturday, and yet
appeared at the close of the day t.i draw
his salary, apparently as sober as any
body. And still the Good Templars insist
that lager-beer is intoxicating, and won't
take no for an answer.
Large quantities of green peas, cucum
bers and snap beans were shipped from
Mobile last week to Northern markets. I
men as follow students aro rebuked by tho
|uiet manner in which the same question
vas met in the medical department of the
owa State University. The graduating
class there contains several women, and
"rom the experience of other institutions
t was expected at the beginning of the
session that there would be trouble. There
was not a ripple of disturbance, however,
and the college has a right to feel proud at
he example it has set for older schools in
the treatment of women.

I_»Y INVITATION OF MR. F. C. WILLIAMS, OF
13* the county of Nottoway, a number of gen-
I tlernen assembled at his residence Saturday, Decem-
I berlb, to test by practical experiment the compar
ative value of the DIXIE PLOW, manufactured by
Starke & Co., and any other that might enter the
field of competition.
The plows were taken to the field at half past two
P. M , the following gentlemen acting as judges : F.
W. Epes, J.B.Williams, Robert Scott, Jas. S.Gil
liam, Wm. T. Christian, Richard Epo9, Dr. Darling,
Sidney Gravos, Walton Sydnor, F. C. Williams, G.
N. Seay, and J. M. Hurt. Mr. S. Graves and Walton
Sydnor were the priucipal plowmen. Mr. W. Sydnor
working the Watt plow and S. Graves the Dixie —
both of whom handled them with masterly skill and
The plows entered were the Dixie two horse right
and left-hand plows, and tbe -'all two horse left
hand. Soon after the trial commenced, the beam of
the Dixie right-hand broke in two und was laid
aside, the contest boing narrowed to the Watt left
hand and Dixie left-hand. Tbe soil first selected
I was a stubble loam without soil; but as the plows
I were new, and did not turn in consequence of the
I roughness of the castings, after a short trial it was
I decided to tako them into another field wberb the
soil was a well-trodden, tenacious clay, with a timo
thy sod covered with vegetation and with straw.
The plows hero performed their work admirably,
cutting and turning clear without choking.
As the Dixie was a new comer, as the contest
waxed warm most of the judges took hold of It to
test personally its practical working. While there
is no intention to do injastice to any, as neither
I party had agent or representative present, and both
plows did well, yet the trial, with the award of tho
I judges, is deemed of sufficient importance to the in*
j terestof agilculture to justify its publication.
The award of the judges was unauimously in favor
of tbe Dixie on the following grounds:
Ist- It cut a deeper furrow.
r 2d. It cut a wider furrow.
3d. It more effectually inverted the sod.
4th. Thu draft seemed to be no greater. \
sth. The mechanical arrangement for altering cut
was deemed more simple and efficient.
At the conclusion of the trial some of the judges
f were so pleased as to determine to order them for
their owu use J* M. HURT, Secretary.
I certify that the above was sent to the Richmond
I "Whig" for publication by myself; that I am not
acquainted with Mr. Starke ; that he had nevsrteen
the paper and knew nothing of its contents, aud was
In no wise a party to the trial of the plows alluded
to J. M. HURT. |

I do not believe in plow trials made by the manu
facturers themselves, but hope tbat every farmer
will at once make a full trial of the DIXIE with
every plow he can find, and buy that which does the
I beat work. I have not been able to supply the de
mand, nor fill my orders for sometime, and must
leave field-trial-where tbey rightly belong— to fir in
