AN ELOQUENT SPEECH BY GEN. J.C.
DKMVEHKD AT DANVII.I.E, U.I.S., TIICItSIHV
LAST, ON THE (XVAMO.N OK THE ANMVEIt
8AKV OK EMANCIPATION'.
General Illack was greeted with cheers its
he crime forward.
SPEECH OK OEN. J. C. TtLACK.
Mr. Chairman and fellow citiy.etis : I was
sitting in my otliee this morning busily en
gaged with my professional duties when the
president of the day was kind enough to
wait upon me und inform me. that there was
it probability that the speakers you had en
gaged would not be present, lie asked nu;
also if I could Ik; present and address your
assemblage. I consented so to do with a
great deal of relm tiiiu e. I thought at first
that my duty to this assembly and to my
self rcquireil I that I should decline Mich tin
invitation. It is meet and proper that when
men und women are gathered to celebrate
un event such as that which you this day
are called ujMtn to celebrate, tiie intellectual
entertainment that is ntforded them should
he of the highest character and mot fully
prepared; but if you are willing to take
what I shall le able to offer after the thought
of un hour or two I shall Ik: satisfied.
THE AKItlCAN It ACE ITS HISTOKY.
In order to estimate nny event we are
examining we mut consider it in the light
of its surroundings; and we judge of the
uitii'..'ty of a people, and the inedibilities
of their future, by knowing what they have
been in the past, and Knowing wliut thev
un; to-day. liy the light or history i
.'.Hell lor the record of the African race.
I rind that with the exception of the Egyp
tian kings, mill she of Slteba, who came
from the mysterious heart of Ethiopia,
bearing her presents to the then most
enlightened king of the earth, your people
have left no trace that history has thought
worthy of prccrvut ion. As the Nuiiiidiau
Guard you throttled liberty amid the ruins
of a failing empire.
You have adorned the triumphs of con
suls and generals; wherever humanity has
been struggling you have been in thedtist,
and the feet of conquerors have been upon
your necks. No great achieveinets in arms
or in empire, during all of the remote past,
that does not bear somewhere the traces ot
your blood and the story of your captivity.
You have been exposed for sale in the marts
not of an empire, or of a continent alone,
but of the entire world. You had never
drawn the sword for your own freedom.
Your bodies had been bought and sold.
The highest point to which you climbed
was the auction block; your families had
been torn asunder; your fathers had been
transported, that their blood and their
strength might go to swell the wealth and
increase the power of their conquerors.
Y"lir Women had been made the polluted
vasals of the lllsts of others; you were tin;
debris in the highways of conquest.
Your history in the American continent
presented 110 exception to this sorrowful
career. Your fathers were brought in
c inins titiriT tiio burning suns of the Mid
dle P.issiige, in the darkness of the prison
hulks across the wide Atlantic, and landed
as the lowest of the low Upon our coasts;
and one hundred and fifty years brought no
amelioration of your condition. Wherever
the civilization of America had gone there
the law of slavery was found to be written;
mid even on the bosom of this broad north
west that to-day is the spreading abode of
liberty, your simple story was w ritten in the
lilack Code of Illinois, slaves to fTie lowest
of those who differ from you in color! Hut
lie who rules the affairs of men, guin ding
your race through darkness and through
disasters, reserved you for the mighty
events of 1.01.
THE EVENTS OK lHfll,
Wealth breeds arrogance, and power
breeds tyranny. Arrogance and tyranny
united rendered the rebellion of l'siu a
possibility against the American govern
ment. The patriots of the nation were
slow, indeed, to recognize the mighty con
ditions and the mighty problems of the
war. They were slow, indeed, to unchain
the sinewy black arms that lay unarmed in
untried strength in the cotton Held, in the
sugar plantations, and in all the South.
They were slow to listen to the reasoning of
Toiissaint Louvertnre; they were alow to
listen to thu voice that came up from the
humblest of the negro quarters, They
were slow to believe that the Cod of Hu
manity had called you to the struggle when
tho freedom of your race was the demand of
liberty and the life of a great people thu
mighty prize of that war.
We entered the wnr of 1 KOI. The em
buttling soldierly of the North, and the em
battling hosts of Secession, 'went alike
neiiiiesof the freu African, with hirt and
tluruuu exception. Here und therj could
bo found men Hkfl Hunter and Fremont
stepping ahead of tho politicians who were
wise enough to seo that liWrty demmidtid
the assistance of every man she would make
free. After a while the thought lieiniii to
prevail uirougiiout tliu North that all the
ineigiea m mB JU'puiiiie, and
all tho energies of its friends,
must everywlmru be called into nasi.r.
ance. We suffered in front of Richmond;
o io in ciiecKcu in irontot ickshurg: the
rels-l hosts had reached Frankfort in Kcnt-
ucrv; inn cmon nosts snkhi at hay; the re
lad banners were floating over every hill und
in every vaney; wnr u at last came the mo-
mentary success of Antietam, and the rel,d
army stixid at the very !orders of the Free
States, panting for revenge not Conquered
but simply checked in its progress and in
us triuinpiis, ami then through thu morning
brightness of this partial victory came sound"
ing tho proclamation of September 22, 1 .(12.
It was then promised by Lincoln that un
less the rebels lay down" their arms, those
upon whose submission and lalsirthi! rebel
lion was standing should be witjrawn
froiu bcnc.tth its feet; its support hIiimToTL.
come the support of this government. The
rwUllinn xvti then t-niovinif it m.t
cessful hour. What cared this crested s.wer
linn nan written Hull Hun, .Mennsses, Seven
Oaks, Richmond and Chickaliominy upon
their banners? What cared they for the
threats of a president Who seemed to hold
his tenure by the power of a broken sword?
Give freedom to the negro! Why, they
wrought his chains stronger. They pur
posed to carry the empire, of rclx-llion and
slavep up to the Potomac, west to the
Pacific and north to the lakes. They
proposed that the power that stood arrayed
against them the united north should
first be broken into provinces, marked by
state lines, and then should become the vns
sals and allies of the empire of slavery.
Such were their dream. The proclania
tionof Sept. 22, 1HII2, went forth like the
call of the clarion. I do not say there was a
providence that was instantly aroused in our
In-half; I do not sav that alone it was an
awakening of public sentiment ot the
orth;l do not say that alone it wasare-
vivul of the old abolition spirit but the ex
tremity of man was the opportunity of liber
ty. The hour struck and the chains fell.
and those who had been the aids and allies
of the rebellion U-camo friends and allies
and soldiers of liberty; and from that day,
fellow citizens, until the close of the war,
whether our armies struggled in the rice
fields of South Carolina; whether our men
laid down their lives by the lonely bayous
of Louisiana, or found graves in theswunips
of Mississippi, or whether in the councils of
the republic aid was necessary, it was ren
d"red by tho negro race, and a new era
lawned tor them.
To-day, the old lMiwersr.f African slaverv
remind us of frightful vision of delirium.
lisappearing in tho light of a briL'hter duw.
To-day, the I Mines of the freeman of the
colored soldier are mingled with those of
bis white comrade on the victorious battle
fields of the republic. To-day, side by side
you stand iu the pulpit, side' by .hie you
plead from the same forum; side by side
you sit in the bouse of representatives of
the nation and in the minute. To-day,

sentiment of the nation allows you to go.
No longer despised and weak, you are recog
nized as a growing, might power, whose
future no man can tell. To-day the Repub
lican governor of Pennsylvania stretches
out his hand to you and the Democratic
;overnor of South Carolina bids you wel
come to the rights ol citizenship, even in
the Palmetto state.
What man ever saw a greater revolution?
What man ever dreamed a greater n forma
t'oi? When Luther struck the tocsin that
.summoned Germany to a religious liberty,
be found a few men already free; he found
a few princes who afforded protection tothe
men of his faith. When Lincoln wrote
the declaration of independence for the
African race he found opposition even in
his own cabinet and army. To-day, fol
lowing the example of the great emancipa
tor, the serfs of Russia twenty mlUnum
strong have been elevated to the liberty
of their ancient tribes. To-day, the Cuban
rebellion ended, the banners of Spain
imperial, autocratic and tyrannical Spain
wave only over free land, over free men.
Through all these latter sixteen years the
force of your emancipation has run through
the veins of the world. To-day, in Ameri
ca, theol!;ces are open to you; you are free
to present your candidates; you are free to
vote for whom you will ; you are free to
make or mar your own destiny, and if
A VOICE OK COl'NSKI,
may be heard where perhaps only the voice
of congratulation should go, let "me say to
you that the conditions are precisely the
same with you as with other men. Whether
you are great and prosperous or whether
you are poor and abject, is a matter of your
own work and your own choosing; whether
your future will be upward and respected,
or whether it will bp downward and despis
ed, is a matter of your own judgment vndof
your own wisdom. You, like other Amer
ican citizens, must be judged by your ai ls,
and must abide the consequences of your
choice and decision. Y'oll approach the
hustings and the ballot box free and un
challenged. Theicgisof the Republic is stretched
above yoHithe arm of its bounteous strength
protects you. According as you shall act
wisely or foolishly depends the question of
your advancement or retrogression. Ail
things are favorable. The silver hand of
education reaches down ami opens the
school house door; the white hand of
religion reaches dow n and opens the church
door; the brawny hand of agriculture waves
you on to the occupation of fair fields; the
hand of mechanic art leads you to the forge

everywhere you are welcome,
Fellow-citizens, the long-separate current
of your race-lite has been received into the
