CONCERNING THE COLORED FOLKS
The colored folks of this section of
country were out in force on New Year's
day, and celebrated the anniversary .of
the . emancipation proclamation with all
the vigor and native glory of the African
race. Everything was ebony lined, ex
cept the instruments of the negro !band
in attendance,, and the clear blue vault
of heaven. The' new Constitution does
not seem to have dulled the ardor 4 of
these sons of Ham, and they are still
able to show the-white man, they have
the right to enjoy, the blessings of free
dom in the manner peculiar to this race.
Nothing but a" seismic disturbance, a la
Mont Pelee, or a: Democratic: national
administration, can ever dull the Ethio
pian's delight of public display. A nation
that can :draw pleasure from attendance
at a funeral, can never -be.; greatly dis
turbed by a proscriptive article of govern
ment. . . ■ . ' ■",■ y > ■
While not disturbing -the negro's .. equa
nimity to any great extent, the -new iCon-.
stitution has surely given -rise to^ new
• political conditions, which cannot have
been overlocK<si. by all thoughtful people.
The old "}:.-*ukee maxim, "United we
stand, dlyiuad we fall,'*., is very, applicable
to: the present situation. "With the. love
of contention" removed, personal animosi
ties leading to political intrigue, would
undermine any political structure, no mat-,
ter how strong. ;. In conversation :: with
a prominent gentleman of the neighbor
hood, a few days ago.'your correspondent
learned ' of the * existence ' of r a ; "Reformed
Democratic party," in this "section, and
was authorized to make known its* exist
ence. , ".."*■'- -- ; - /. ■■.'/- : " : ■'
