iblethan is ordinary supposed, and
that the only real obstacle in tbel

Indulge in such theories go to the
Sudan, and pass 'a week at Omdur
man. That place marks in commerce,
tn letters and in art, in science and j
uchitecture, the highest point of de
velopment yet reached by any Afri
jan race. As already suggested, the
iifl^rence between Oaadurman and
London about measures the difference
oetween the black and white. In
iisputably great, that it admits of
measurement is questionable.
So far as I am advised, the Sudan
is are the finest race of the whole
African species. Phvsically, they
ire tall, as a whole well-formed; and,
in their savage way, they are indls
putably courageous. Yet in them
not the sllghest inherent power of
development has as yet come to the
jurfaca. Baker, after living amongst
taem for years, calls attention to the
striking elementary fact that, since
the beginning of time to the day that,
qow Is, they have neither domesticat
ed the elephant nor Invented pottery.
As respects pottery the Chinese, for j
Instance, were "as civilized as they

? tnces are made, there is for Amerl
jans much food for thought in Baker's
I aonolusions. His verdict on the
i Sudanese was at any rate explicit?
"I believe that 10 years residence in
Sudan and this country would spoil
II an angel, and would turn the best
heart to stone.' And again?"the
, I ipathy, Indolence dishonestly com
bined with dirtness, are beyond des
rlption; and their abhorrence of
inything like order inoreases their
natural dislike to Europeans." The
following we also have observed in
America?"In childhood I believe
i ube negro to be in advance in intellec
3 Dual quickness, of the white child of a
similar age, but the mind does not
expand?it promises fruit, but does
? aoD ripen; and the negro has grown
! in body, but not advanced in Intel
lecfc." In this respect, as the ln
I dividual, so is the race. "In no in

* itinots being a love of idleness and
i Avagedom, he will assuredly relapse

may be moral; but contact with the
white man is necessary to keep the

Qor numbers, nor tools, nor narmony,

ae voluntarily adopted anything, ex
sept rum and tire-arms. He taught
ilmself to handle Implements and
weapons, both of the rudest aod
most elementary kind; and he can
talk. Thera his development stops.
In architecture, he has not progress
ed beyond the cave, the hovel and the
jest. Io letters he has not devised a
symbol for a sound. In ? donee, bis

capacity for computation. Art,

latter being considerable in number,
under the same system of govern meat.
Drawing apart, they will assuredly
become antagonistic. An opposite

work with more or less friction where
the white greatlv dominates, and the

Meanwhile one thing is clear?the
work done by those wno were in poll

The negro, after emancipation, should
have been dealt with, not as a politi

been treated as a ward and depeud

ness and absolute justice. Practical

not less so now. At best, it is some
thing which can only be slowly and
tentatively approximated. Neverthe

the Sudan without strong suspicion
that we will in America make small
progress towards a solution of our
race problem until we approach it in

and more of a scientific, spirit.
