A meeting of ro'ored fltlxena opposeil to Ihe
Amerban Colonlxation Society waa held last
evening in the leeinre-room of the Fifteenth
atreet Frtsbyterlan church. There were about
one hundred persons present, aming thJ mare
prominent being Congressman Ttalney, of evuth
Carolina; Frofeaaor W. J, Wilson, (leorge T.
Downing, noliert PurvKof Philadelphia; Win.
M. Matthews, Loul Djugtaas and II. M, Oreen.
Mr. Cornelius Clarke was elected chairman, and
Prof. James atorum, aecr etary.
Mr. Harke, on taking the chair, said they ha 1
met to lake counsel In regard to their old enemy,
the American Colontiatlon Society, the aame oM
enemy they hal fought In the daya of alavery.
Aa all those present were familiar with the
object of the meeting he would not occupy the
time that had been allotted to thnee who were to
i. A. Hinuar waa Introduced, and aeld he had
been opposed to the Colonization Hoclety long
before he came to thla country. It purpose waa
far from Christian, and Its ultimate aim could
not be foreseen hy free colored men, Aa he un
it ratood it, the object of the society waa to urge
f.-ee colore l men to leave the country and go to
Africa. Heiouidnotaee why the colored man
ahould go back to Africa any more than the
Irishman ahoull return to Ireland. There waa
aa mnih need of clvllixallon In Ireland aa In
Africa. It waa better to bring the colored man
over to this country, if we wish to advance the
cause of clrlllxatlon, than to send him lo Africa,
Professor W. J. W ilson said he waa oppose I to
the Colon! ration Hoclety, lecauat he alwaya be
lieved thla country waa the home of the colored
people, and that Uiey Intended to remain here
and flithi the battle U the end. This thing might
aawcll be understood here in Washington thai
we do not Intend to leave onr country, tlie ot
Ject of the Colonisation ftoc.ety was now as in
rears past to get rid of the free negroes, aoaa
to render the atave more secure In his bondage.
It waa too late for that old foaail, ihe Colonlaa-
of the country. We artAmerbau cltliena, and
lutend to remain here and make prwtreaa like
i inn nici7, ii, romj iu ua anu leu ns u go out
whltemen. Can the rnlted Mletea spare one la-
iKirerf W e are all needed here. t nuni more
coloretl men here, and let ua ferry over the negro
from Africa. Africa does not need colonists, but
the Bible and the aiwlling took. He wai not op
posed to aendlug out missionaries to Africa.
Thla old society, after being almost dead, has
been dug up for a purpose nut at first aliihl appar
ent. There la money in it. 1 here la a proposi
tion before Conrreae to establish a line of steam
ers to Africa to carry the mails, Thla la the
scheme to establish a line of at cam era and to
make money out of It. W e are opposed to Con
tresa making any appropriation for thla purpose.
If they get a line of ateamer they will easily
ferry us over to Africa. Our business la to ae
that the line geta no money from Cuugreaa,

Mr. Itobert Purvis, of Philadelphia, maile a
strunaBeeth InoppoBltloii to the lolonlxatlon

Sumner in persistently urging the civil ritht

have been railed but tor the fact that the Coloni

leading colored men of the country looked upon
colonisation with treater favor than ever before,
and that one of the rlty Journals had called at-
leoiton io ine aiairmru m im euuonai column a.
He deilred to aav that the nil fire, I iiwinl nt tn

"What ln,(md' name do yon want," fried He
replied Maryland. On regie wing (figuratively
