WHAT'S WHAT AND W1I0S AVI10-
SCHUIIIIY ItACE, MIXED AND
As wo- huve si.ld wo bellovn wo have
beforo mado the remark that tho colored
mass meeting held nt Sohecl's hall on
Friday night whs " I leh, raro und racy j 1
Mi. I il 'cotipiu of lb ! pccchcs wero rather
romiirkahU' In their way. Scott, who neto I
the part of n firm friMi J of Col. "Wlmluii,
made oinu forcible points on Hross. Said
" I should like to know In what particu
lar Uruss is entitled to thu volos of tho
colored men. What singlo net bus he
done? Whnt .word of kindness has ho
spoken? It bis claim to our support if ho
makes nny claim bnscd upon tho declar
ation, which ho tnndo several years ngn,
that ho would resign his otllce liclore no
would allow n colored nlun to testily in
his court ? Has he n ricbt to our votes be
cause lit hits had his bread and butter from
the Land of tho public for tl. putt e'ght or
ten years? Or sbojld wu Veto for
him becattso prominent while republican
nearly all ol them aro supporting him ?
This is nn political tight. Hotb candidates
nre democrats, nnd if Mr. Hro's is n liber
al democrat, savo us irom tno niiucrni
ones I 1 have looked at this matter, nnd
formed mv oninioti or. principle, nnd 1
hnvo concluded to eo for Col. Winston.
Ho Is n more liberal man than Mr. Uross
Ho hns proved himself in many ways thu
frlund of colored men. He has been lib
eral in ills dcalinirs with colored men
who 'rent from him. Ha is fair and
square, anu the ciiargo tnni no was u
slave holder Is not true. Ho hits always
beon n clever pcntleninn, is
now on advocate of "equal rights for nil,''
and has ovory uuullllcatiun for the olflco
no is reeking. '
In conclusion, ho warned his hearers to
bownro of tho oloqucneo of Hird, rccog'
iti.ed everywhere, ho said, ns tho "cnglo
orutor of Egypt." Bird," ho snid,"likes to
follow Scolt, und I cannot pretend to copo
with him in cloqucnca und elegance of
diction, but in this argument 1 have the
best fide nnd ho must ru'ort to nil his skill
to present his friend dJross beforo you in n
favorable light. Don't, 1 pray you, allow
him to get tlio bottor of your judgment.'
Hird did follow Scott, nnd his speech, if
il bad been mndo with proper surround
ings, would have been recognized by tlio
appreciative nsavery skillful tit bit of
elegant sarcasm. Tnkc, for instance, this
pnssagoin reply to Scctt's nssertion that
Col. Winston had advanced to the cquul
rights for nil-position :
" My friend Scott is pleased to claim that
Col. Winston bus outstripped Judgo Hross
in tlio race towards thu stand point of
tlie duality of mankind, nnd is now press
inc forward with thoso whose - slo-
can is "equal richts for nil."
This assortlon ustonished mo when I re
mombered that- Col. Winston wasthosamo
man who latelv declared, wlion ho was
beaten nt tho polls by the votes of colored
elector.., that ho wns satisfied in defeat by
thu knowleiluc that lie hnu received only
tho votes oMntelliircnt nnd decent whit
men ; und I was doubly astonished if tho
expression is pcrmi.iublc when 1 culled
to mind that Col. Winston was one of
tho.ti democrats, who, not long ago, wero
inclined to read out of llm democratic
party thu llborul men who recognized no
comnlished fuels anu worn In favor of nc
quiescing in tho incvitnblu which prophe
sied tho early dawn of the day of political
e.ptulity. Heally, tho Uiicovnry of this
conversion of Col. Winston from thu sin
fulness of doniocr.cy, is Important and
gratifying. It is one of the cheering signs
of tho times. I think I sco the gallant
Colonel now, mounted upon that llery
charger of hi, sitting erect with the mar
tial.bearing peculiar to him, riding proud
ly along Couimerciul avenue. At his sido
is my fiiend Scott, mounted also for he,
too, bus lately purchased n l.ory steed.
Thu onti is oniclous of his own grunt im
portance; the other is proud of thu compa
ny he is in; und above their heads, moving
with them as they sweep along, may bu
seen and rend thu legend: " Equut rights
for ull." Thu vision I n gratifying one.
It heralds tho .better (dny coming."
Tho Ituvorend Shores, when houddmssed
tho meeting, paid Col. Winston many
compliments, and commented nt some
length on that gentleman's liberality;
Thu Colonel hid refused $700 for the lots
on which his church stood, nnd had ac
cepted from him $.230 for them. Hu had
ulsu given Ij thu colored Methodists their
lots, und sold them the building for it small
sum, and it like kindness hu had extended
to Hbv. Mr. Hradluy. Hross was a gentle
man. Shores protected that hu would nut
suy that Hross hud-flncd innocent' men, but
hudld know, and would say, thai Itro-i hud
let off' men who should liavo bein lined,
und then ho gazed at Hrudluy in n very
signlllcuut manner. "It has been said,''
liu romarko.l, "that Colonel Winston is u
southern man niid was u slaveholder.
(Cries of "its n Ho. ) Hu did not suo
proper to investigate tho truth of the
charge, but hu didn't cure if it was true.
"I don'l deny 1 huvu nsyiujuthy.fur the
souihcrn people. They understand us
colored people, but thesu northern people
don't, und you may search ull over Cairo
nnd you wilt 'find that two-thirds of tho
pooplu wero slavo owners. I was nlso
born in tho south, bl.t was raised and ed
ucated in Illinois and Ohio. Mr. Bird
says wu colored men owu it debt of grnti
ttiJuto thu Germans, that thuy fought for
us, mid will go back on us if wo don't
vote for Bros. Thoy hud better no for
ward on us first. Mr. Hird has learned
this since lu came from Canada."
Hero Bird interrupted by saying ho was
born in Ohio.
Key, Shores "Don't tempt mo to reply
to you. 1 don't want to make unybody
bleed here ; but I Will lav I urn an Ameri
can citizen nnd was an Aiuorlcau soldlor,
which is very questionable whether Homo
other people can say as much," And he
pointed ut Hird.
Then he went un ;
" Now, wo liavo n mayor and n cltv
council, which woru elected Inst yoar by ii
combination of domncrats and republicans"
io ignoro mu uoioruu man, nnu tlio thing
is to bo continued, Wu have n ring that
must bo broken up. What ban been done?
Look at Tenth slreot, tho most important
street in tlio city. i hy Isn't tho side
walks on It mended Because It leads to
u colored church. Why, I will tell vou
ait incident. 1 had wrii pair of now boots
somh time ago, nnd tho thought occurred
vo mu i would wnlK up street. I stopped
out on tho walk. I walked along, when
suddenly oi 0f my now boots caught un
der n nail in U,u wk und. was torn I I
liavo 11 bill against tho cltv for that boot
yen j. ni is iho boasted friendship of
inu mayor nnu council for tho colorod
man. uur boots must bo torn on Tonth
street, because, forsooth, it lends lo n color-
church, nnd therefor., Ila .1 Imv ill.-.
cannot bu in-inlod "
After Shore came u motion to ndlourn.
which p:nvnlled amid cries for Bradley.
AVhllu Bird was iniiklnahl Bro.sne(.i.b
the other night, a WiticUm durklo cried
out: "0!i I dry up I You've sung iotiir

Tho election ofthls gentlcmnn Is assured
boyond a doubt. No combination enn bo

brought forward n doctor who lias an oillco
in Eighth street, but ho is not knee high In
tho race. Kev. Shore., who stiuucslod him
for thu office, was ashamed to mention his
namo nt tho colored meeting on Fridny

During tlio past yctr Mr. Lmsdcn has
