ADDRESS TO THE COLORDED VO
TERS. Again you are called upon on
the eve of another Congressional
election and campaign, to assert
your rights and privileges as Amer
ican citizens. It is important to
our political interests that we as
sert our independence, and to no
longer be willing dupes ot the Re
publican party. The Radical mem
bers are again clamoring for our
votes to put them in power, that
they may have a renewal of license
to break their solemn pledges made
to us in the adoption of every plat
form, state and national, since
1864. Let us not be deceived by
their promises, but cast our votes
with the honest men of the Demo
cratic party, who has made cor
ruption and fraud tremble and fear
by the stern hand of justice. We
should feel that our best hopes
can be realized through the divis
ion of our votes, aud we should
without delay organize ourselves
into campaign clubs iu every town,
city and county and congressional
district, aud use every means in
our power that is honorable to keep
a democratic majority in the lower
house of Cougress. 'The bfoken
promises of the Republican party,
when they had full control of this
Government should warn us never
again to trust the party that has
so often deceived our race. Withl
such patriotic leaders as McDonald,
of Ind., Barbour, of Va., Kenua of
W. Va., Morgan of Al u, Daniels,
of Va., McMillin, ol Tern., Hamp
ton, S. C, Mithell, oi Conn., Hov
ering of Mass., Randall, of Pa.,

ot N. G., Hailey, of Idaho, Fisher,
of Mich., Grane, of Texas, Scott,
of Pa., Sadler, of Ala., JWhithorne,
of Teun., Hall of Iowa, aud others
who are honest and shining lights
in the party, we may safely follow.
Where they lead the time is mo
meutious to us as a people and we
should be vigilant in securing true
and honest men to ad minister; the
laws of the National Government,
it is eosential that the party should
try aud secure the-election of mem

that the Democratic party could
elect their own Senators to sustai u

In the West End of the city
there is a popular drug store. The
proprietor of the store is a geutle-.
man of reputation and character,
who has in his employment a clerk
who is well known to the boys of
West End. This clerk has been
infatuated with a lady for some
time and how to gain her t.flec
tioni he did not know. When,
ever the lady would come in the
store this clerk always had some
lh-ng to say against her b au
which operated to hia detriment,
A few days ago the young mau,

called or was passing the store,
when she was halted by the drug
clerk and informed that her beau
was sick &c. The lady meeting
her intended a few evenings ago,
informed him what had been told
to her. This news exasperated
the young man, who weut hunt
ing for the drug cleik, but could
not find him. The young man of
(he Post Office declared that he
means to k II him, the first op
portunity he has. He also said
that he will have nothing more to
do with the lady, to whom he is
engaged, if she allowed ih s clerk
to talk to her, as he cid. The

Perhaps the most important
act of the Colored Press Associa
tion, which convened last week at
Atlantic City, was the adoption
of the resolution urging' migration
of coloied people from the South
to the West. The resolution was
a strong, lucid statement of an Un
disputed fact, concluding with a
well-timed recommendation to
to those who are oppressed, to
seek better privileges in the West.
We do not wish to Bee an indis
criminate and senseless migration
of colored people, but, with the
members of the Press Association,
we are inclined to think that
many colored people could leave
the Sjutn and benefit both them
selves and those who are left at
Political migrations are not here
anticipated nor encouraged We
do not want to see colored colonies
sent to any State to help swell any
pnr'y's power. The colored people
have had enough of such work.
They have played the "cat's paw"
for too many designing politicians
already. They have been turned
against their natural friends by
political sychophants who, having
ued them until every atom ot
power was exhausted, then left
tbem. These "bleedeis" of the
political household have done the
colored people incalculable harm.
Let us hope that they have at last
lifted their accursed spell from the
t-jo confiding race, and will hence
forth give it a chance to make an
honest and inspiring growth
Let the colored people of the
South consider this question. Mi
gration is the one satisfactory so
lution of mauy present vexatious
questions. The reasons are legion.
They speak -and plead for the
highest iuterests f of ' the race.
These interests can best be con
served by the race making its in
fluence felt. This can be done in
no way so well as when 'the influ
ence is measured by so much gold.
Make the white' people ' of the
South understand the Value of
colored labor. Let them see that
the colored man's services are the
best and that they will be needed.
