Friday Morning, May 18th, 1877.
The war ltetween Russia and Tur
key i" increasing in interest. . The
Rust-inns arc moving slowly upon tlie
Turks. The former greatly outnuni
cr the latter. There is talk of a rc
valt in INflainl. We may soon look
for a great battle.
Fred Eouglass ?n Washington.
Tlu'Raltimoee Gazette publisher the
follow inn suMiiuiit of the part of Dniitf
Jas lc tun- which has excited so much
indignation in Washington:
"Washington was not a .ifood city.
It had a good many churches, hut it
was some distance from the sjiot to
whi h tlicir sjtires iminteil. It had a
l.un I heginniug, ami had never ro-
duced any great statesma?i or phil
anthropist.' The descendants of its old
families makeno mark. It sided with
treason a gainst loyal ty,and its selection
was a great mistake, being sandwiched
between two slave States; and the
headquarters of the slave trade, where
Imys were sold as swine. It was cruel
without reason, and indecent without
shame. Freedom of speech and the
press was unknown, and its idea was
slavery. John Quiney Adams was
threatened with death for advocating
the riht of jK-tition. Drinking and
gambling were prevalent under the
dome of" the eapitol. The duelist was
in repute, and the place rilled with
millions weeds and serpents. Moral
lirewusnshame. All was fairwithoiit,
but foul within. Its boasted chivalry
was to challenge a Northern man to
tight and to whip a negro with his
hands tied. The people applauded
Breckinridge in his treason, stum" le
tween Andrew Johnson and initeaeh
ment, and in their midst was hatched
the devilish plot that robbed IJneoln
of his lite. Iuringthe war Jeff. lavis
w oulil have Ut'it more welcome than
Iiincoln, Ix-ethan Grant, amlthe Stars
and Bars more than the Star-spangled
Banner. Applause. I'arson Brown-
low made an apt remark on his way
to Washington. He said that ho felt
he must I e getting near the city, as he
liegan to feel as if he wanted to steal
.something. laughter. Washing
ton society tanned into a lury the pas
sions ol men, aim much of the oll
spirit was left. The iKrtraits of Gid
dings, (Jerrit Smithand such men had
no place on the walls of the Corcoran
Art Gallery, but the Calhouns and
McDullies were numerous. They
knew how to make Northern men
with Southern principles, and that
class was reaiiearing now. it was
again getting dark for thecolored race
tun the shadow would ultimately pass
away. Applause. The old Mary
land and Virginia families always had
the best pickings and the offices and
slaves. But Virginia's glory has de
parted. Instead of the mother o
Slates she is the grandmother; and oc
casionally one of her sons apiiears,
chew i uk James River tolacco his
dignity gone, masters without slaves,
lords without lands, i lie Washing
tonian is indolent inall his movements.
Step into a store and you will wait five
niinuleslK'foreyouare noticed. Kverv
one of them has liecn or exini-ts to le
a great man. Laughter. They walk
slowly, but not measured, their arms
banging listlessly by their side. He
excels all other Americans in sitting,
and can remain in an easy chair longer
without fatigue than any other man
Laughter.1 He is fully euual in this
respect Iodic Turk. Hecarrie acinic
He walks with it, sits with it, stalks
with it. Like the swords of the
Knights of old, they are more for
ornament than support. Thev wear
hats pulled down over their eves like
thieves and rohlie-rs. Thev think it
gives them a Congressional look
There is a class called -iioor white
trash' who never held othec. These
were the slave overseers, catchers
whimpers and wateli-dogs. They,
make some sort of living by hunting
and fishing, and yet they arc not hap
py. Laughter. They talk of the
Lost Cause as if thev bad millions in
jt. The city is tilled with schemers of
all kinds and Uith sexes, who strive to
get something for nothing. To lx
honest i to hen fool. The place is
Jille l wilhdupJi-ity ami servility. The
change in the condition of the colored
people was remarkable. Thcirschisils
were among the best, and when he
visited there and found bright ami in
telligent children doing the most dif
Jicult mathematical problems he felt
there was a future for their race."
