THE KUTUKB OF TnK AFRICAN
RACK A II Iti OUT PROSPECT.
Mn. Wkmdzll Piiilluc, in a late lec
ture on "Tho Future of tho African
' Raco," gavoour colored friends some ex
cellent advicu and exalted their " blood."
While ho kindly itdmlte that "Uoil, has
' made all blood, no tnattor whether Asiatic
'or Greek or Latin or Saxon or African,
'in tbo genoral avorngo, about oqual, ' he
insinuates, if ho dous not flatly assort,
that tho African blood is an exception to
the general rule and la bettor than tho
ordlnitry run of that health and llfo-glv-
Ing Quid. ' Thoro havo boon," says Mr.
Phillips, "somo groat fitcts In the llnu of
' tho history of the blai-U i ace, no far as that
'history is known ovor sinco Herodotus
' pointed out tho African raco us tho mild
'est, tho purest, tho sweetest wurshlpun
of tho gods. It seems ns if in Central
' Africa, by tho banks of tho Kile, and

' mochanlsm, so wonderful in unginoering,
'so accomplished la literature, so wisu
'In its method of govern merit, that if uo
'could tako it up, it would ho thu wonder
' of tbo world.''
Tho oloquent gentleman, wo aro com
pelled to admit, has nut boon able to con
vince us that African blood hits not do-
generated sinco the dttjs when, in a man
ner so marked, it distinguished itsulf in
Central Africa, by the Nile, nod in Aiiu,
on tho mountains. Indeed it is u lament
able fact, he impliedly admits, that tho
African is not now what hu was then ; but
ho kindly romovos or rathor uiodllloi our
regret occasioned by a mournful contem
plation of this fact, by assuring u thnt
"civilization is llku a Mosaic nud Ood
' moans that uach blood shall contribute
'some lino or color to thu result. Asia

We do not know hnw to express our
thaiiVs to Mr rntllips for this nituraucii.
If hu had not told us of thu Intention of
(tod in regard to tho colored rucu wo
should havo continued in Ignorance; but
wo have no doubt Mr. Phillip knows,
ito has probably most all of the reform
ers of his school havo established direct
communication with heaven and it con
stantly receiving from headquarters in
formation of Qod's proposed movements
in behalf of tho down-trodden raco that
of old was wonderful in Central Africa
und upon the mountains of Asia.
Wo regret to stato that Mr. Phillips
who evidently knows, discourage us bv
the declaration that thu colored man, be.
foro he can tako hli propor place in tho
front of thu advancing column of tho
human race.inuitdosotjiethlnt: Tomialnt

eihlovad their own liberty worn thu llrst
slaves In tho hlbtory of the world that
took their own chains und welded them
into victorious swords. ISut all this has
not given them lliolr propor placu in so
citty. "They must do mure," says Mr,
Phillips. In our grandchildren's day those
children will send " telegraphic" tuuiiagu
from San Francisco to lloiton and back
without a wlro, no man at ollhcr ollico
will know wlmt the messages arc, nnd
they will run loth ways at tho
same time. In that day undoubt
edly, electricity, superceding stoain,
will light our houicc porhapi lilt us
up Into the air, carry us across tho world,
and absolutoly make mini tho lord, with
out a inovumont, of creation. To cnabb
tho colored raco to assume Its placo nhcad
of all races, tho colored man, In Mr. Phi
lips' opinion, must t tep Into tho nrotin nnd
ay, "I will utsbllili n lystum of telo

comes into tho land, and no whllo pcron

clotho n million men for a day's wage,
and show how an hour's lnW can mnko

Having accomplished these inconsldor
ablo tasks, tha colored nun will, Mr.
Phillips has no doubt, ho universally rec
ognized as tbo mott consummntu lluwcr,
