What Henry Boyd told the Negroes of "
missi esipi. e
Part of a speech delivered at Car. h
rollton Mississippi, in May, 1868, by a1
Henry Boyd, colored, on the subject 'r
of the adoption or rejection of the y
scalawag constitution, disfranchising j
twenty thousand of the most iotelli- tl
gent white citizens of the State, s
which constitution was voted down by a
the colored vote in Juno, 1868: ti
My Colored Friends--I appear here n
to-day in your interest alone: The k
white man is able to take care of him- c,
self, and as you all see, I have not one el
drop of white blood in my veins ti
[laughtor]. I am a regular old fash- g
ioned, plain, cornfield nigger, and ,,
have not tho capacity to instruct k
white people as to their duties. 'yAn -
f I bad the will. I.was a slave from 8
my birth--I always endeavored to a,
serve my master faithfully nocording f1
to that letter of the Bible which ci
reads: "Servants, be obedient unto I.
jour masters, for this is right." And.
can lay my hand upon my heast .t.- a,
day and say, before God, that 1 et,- ti
teitain no ill-will toward any white f,
man on earth, and least of all toward (:
my old mauster and his sons, whom I ti
loved as my own brothers., and with I
whom I played in boyhood. In T,
all our neighborhood romps and fro- p
lies and fights (for boys will fight), h
they stood at , my back, as I did at t1
theirs, whenever it came to the pinch d
[laughter]; and, thank God, I will do ti
o yet. I will stand by them so long
as they stand by me, whether the up- n,
pression comes from the Yankees, or h
from wherever else it may. When- a
ever it comes to my makiag choice ,
between white men, I shall prefer a
those of -my own section to all the C
carpet'bag :ers in the world. (Laugh- t,
ter and applause.) There ain't very ti
toh .difference - between white men y
and jYankees (laugbt--r), and whenever ,
you find it at ll you'll find it ip the t
white, mans favor. White folks are a
all pretty niuch out of the same cloth, il

is As a matter of general interest. we
e publish the following sketch of the
B life of the lIon. R. B. Carpenter, the
? candidate of the Union Reform party
i for Governor of South Carolina:
Judge Carp enter was born in F rank
' lin county, Vermont, on the first day
d of January, 1826. When twelve
d years of age his parents removed to
Kentucky. Here the judge received
an academical education. Wheui rea
a dy for college ill health compelled
t him to travel, and about four years
e was spout in traveling in Texas and
d in the Southwest generally. When
his health was restored he returned to
t Kentucky and read law in the office
y of the late Hon. T. J. Morehead, at
. one time Governor of that State, and
' also United States Senator. On the
Sfirst day of January, 1847, then being
s twenty one years of ago, the judge
? was admitted to practice in the Si
e premo Court of the State of Ken
- tucky. He commenced the practice
of law, and in 1851 was elected at.
torney for the commonwealth. This
Soffice he held until 1854, when he
? was elected attorney for the Chicago,
" Alton and St. Louis Railroad Corn
puny. After holding this office three
? years, living in Chicago the while, lie
returned to Kentucky, where, in 1862,
? he was re-elected commonwealth's at.
, torney, and retained that position un
til 1867, in which year lie came to
this city. He was appointed by Chief
Justice Chase, registrar in bankruptcy
a for this district, atnd discharged the
? duties of this ofice until the second
of January, 1869, when he took his
P seat as Judge of the Fifth Judicial
Circuit, having been elected on the
i 9th of December, 1868, by a three
a fourths vote of the Legislature.
As Judge of this Circuit, Judge
n Carpenter has given universal satis
^ faction. It is thought that he will re
ign his office, to accept the nomica
tion, as soon as the crimiinal docket of
his court is disposed of, which will
probably be befcre the close of the

tells bow Geneial Zollieallur, of the
Confederate army, was killed, and
says the fatal bullet was fired by a
young man named (brisnta, who was
in Colonel Fry's regiment. This Dis- I
patch adds :
"Young Chi isman, after the war,
brooded over the act. until his frietis
began to aijprshend danger of insani
ty, Ie was a brave aind honiest sol
dier, and could not possibly haive felt
any compo notion of conscience for

the reflection that lhe had killed a hu

been made a pristoner by the mere
strotehing forth of his hnud -who was
powerless to do him ay injury-so
wrought upon his consciene-proyed,
as it were, upon the ver y vitals of his

feared, into hopoless insanity.
"A few days atgo a writ was award.
ed against~ him by the Judge of the
Wayne county court, when the fore

dejected and forlorn condition of in

"And ho Passed On to Sh mom."
The words of my text, my. hearers,
you will lind in.l. Kings iv chapter,
"And he passed to Sbunem.
'Tako to heart the lesson our text
teaches, anl when temptations try
you, and evils lie in wait to ensnare
y ou, "iass to bliuni'Cin."'
When you ioo tuen of wrath light
ing and breaking heads and sticks,
and heur them cursing and uweai ing
omind the words of the text, and "pass
on to Shun'em."
And, oh ! uiy hearers--if you should
come into 0u113of our little towns and
behold a row of nice little oflicos with
tin signs on the doors of each, and
hear men talking of attachmentswith
out afleutions, and sequestrations
without gniet-ah, and seire-yours
and never their-eah, and abI'rtL eter.
tidally going to law-ah, it will be to
your lploGt to mind the w..ds of the
prophet. "and pass on to Sh'un'em."
And if you go round. where the
nrohants are-ah-and they rush out
to shake hands with you, are especial
ly anxioui to learn the condition of
your w ife's health and the children's
aini the worms and tle crops, and of
fer to sell you a little bill of goods a
good deal lower than their oust, on ac
count of love for you, and for cash-ah,
-"''pas on to Shttin'ei."
And if you should happen to go to
Cosmoipolitan Corner-and see in
drinking beor, that will bring them to
a bier- and ginslings that will sling
down the strongist, and smnihos that
will smash a man's fortune fastener
thau coinnission merchants who ad
vanced supplies on the crop-ah--oh,
"pass oi to Shun'cin."
ltit oh, my hearers ! if you should
go down to Now Orleans--that mod
ern Sodoin and (loniorrah,' where t
have lately been-ah--and where the
gas lights are flashing and, oh, glir
mering, and the oabis are dashing
along the streets-and obliging dti
vers ate of'ering to cat ry you where
only steamboat captains and the first
gentlemen go'ira-and St. Charles
,greet is on a rip and a roar-ah-and
the'brass bands crashing music from
balconies--and men in little holes are
ready to sell you little tickets to go in
and see the Black Crooks dance with
nothing to wear-and make spectacles
(f themselves-ah-oh, my friends,
"'pas on to Slun'pm."
And, oh I if later in the evening,
wth it very particular friend--you go
up stairs into uotsploudidly furnich
ad rooma-ah-aud see the supportable
spread with delicacies from every
climo and country-and teal-ducks
and snipe and yellorluggod pullets
and pheasants, and all that fbsh, flesh
and fowl osn afford-and champagne
and brandy, and Biurgundy and
Chateau Lafitte, older than Waterloo,
-and nothing to pay and all free
and a nice gentleman with rings on
his fingers, and a diamond breast-pin,
playing with little spotted paste
boards, and arother hurting a ma
chine and dropping in a little ball
that rolls round and round and stops
sometimes on the eagle bird, and of
toner don't-and where the players
put down more than they take up
and mno sometimes win, but mostly
don't-ah-Qh, "pass on to Shur'em."
And in conolusio'n, my friends,
when the world, and flesh, and 'the
dovila-lie in wait for you-"jass
on to Shun'em."
