The twenty-first anniversary of the
slaves in the District of Columbia, was
duly celebrated last Monday, notwith
standing the inclemencyjof the weather
thousands of people could bo seen on
the streets. There were all sizes and
ages, tho decreped mother, father, the
jubilant daughters and the little prat
tling boys all enjoyed the festivities of
the day; never before in the history of
the colored race, was there ever such a
demonstration in the District of Colum
bia. The visiting malitia and Smith's
commandary from Baltimore pre
sented a fine appearance. The Balti
more commandary showed more ap
preciation for the emancipation of the
slaves in the District of Columbia, than
our own commandaries in this city;
notwithstanding the opposition, Col.
P. H. Carson, J. W. Freeman and
others interested in the success of the
celebration met with, the next turn out
to be one that will go down to posteri
ty and one that will ever be remember
ed and honored in this age. The suc
cess of the celebration was due to a
great extent to the efforts of the Chief
Marshal, Messrs. J. W. Freeman, Geo.
W. Stewart and Milton M. Holland.
Tho Ch.ef Marshal, the Chief of Staff
and aids, were tastefully dressed in full
black. Ko one resembled the black
Sam Domings Chief, more than Col. P
H. Carson, who headed the great pro
cession Monday. At one o'clock tho
procession started, headed a squad of
eighteen mounted poliqemen in the

THE EMANCIPATION EDICT.
Whereas : The condition of the col
ored people throughout the United!
States is of such a peculiar character,
that demands a serious consideration!
and circumspection, it is necessary
that we should give warning to tho
powers that be, to have a watchful care
of their surroundings and thus guard'
against the corrupting demoralizing
influence of the political contagiqn;
which is becprning to be a ruinous fac
tor in the bodies-politic, which' wiilir
tend to the destruction of a republic
and a party whose mission is not yety
Whereas; Existing circumstanco3
of a discriminating character, seem3 to
be the prevailing features, on the part
of the Republican managers against .
the colored race, for causes unjustifi
able, which is a direct rebuke of our
fealty, fidelity and devotion to the Re
publican party. There aro evidences
that such fealty, devotion and fidelity
are disregarded and that a discriminat
ing republic exits in America instead!
of a government "of the people, by
tho people and for tho people."
We believe in the principles enunr
elated by the republican party founded .
upon tho American Constitution and)
rectified by a power that believed not
in taxation without representation1..
The stw of the times predicts a politi
cal crisis in America, hence it is neces
sary for us to become more circum
spect and demand an equatable adjust
ment of the laws, recognition accord
ing to merit and enter our protest,
against the prevailing discrimination!
on the part of the present administra
tion. We have no stabs for the repub
lican party, but we have for some ofi
the managers of that party. We, who.
have been recently liberated from thoi
shackles of slavery, have demonstrated
our appreciation for what has beem
done, by this, our Twenty-First Ann'i
versary of the Emancipation of tho
slaves in theDistrict of Columbia. Wo
are not ungrateful towards those who
were instrumental in giving us liberty,,
because liberty is a principle that flows
from a fountain of -justice, "and when
justice is abridged liberty is denied us."
We shall ever honor and cherish, the
inemory of him whose name is immor
tal and whose sentiments are living,
monuments, namely, "with malice to
wards none and charity for all"
Abraham Lincoln Sumner, Stevens
Garrison, Garrett, Bruce, and another
who is the pride of the colored race,

whom we look to day as the pioneer
WJiei-eas, This is a republican form
of government, where each and every
citizen ought to have equal political1
rights, no taxation without representor'
tion, therefore we demand a speedy
restoration of the right of suffrage in
the District of Columbia. The denial'
of any state or territory of its rights
by any illegal enactments is against the
fundamental principles of the Constitu
tion of the United States, and indirect
opposition to the principles for which
our ancestors contended against British
aggression. We demand a fair reprer
sentation in the District government,,
namely, the Fire and Police Depart
ments. To protest against tho importation
of foreign talent to the exclusion of
our home talent. We pay ten million,
of dollars of taxes and consist of one
