JUSTIG'K TO THE COLOItKl) HACKS.
Line betwecu the Hoik uf Nliein unit Ham.
(Kor ttiti Cnlro Kvonlii IJullf tlii.J ,
Meurt. Editors : Just now, tho claims put
forth for the negro race, occupy much of pub
lic attention. 1 recently saw, in a Chicago
paper, notice of a locture delivered there- by
"tho eloquent colored orator," as they stylo
him, AV. Urown ; nnd'on looking over the
synopsis given ln'tb&t paper, of tho haid lec
ture, on "Hannibal," In which thotalonU and
military skill of the celebrated Carthagcnlaii
foe of Home were held up to dcucrvcd admi
ration, it seams evident that the design of tho
'eloquent colored orator" was to produce tho
lmpresion that Hannibal was n iifgtcf and(
that consequently, tin) nwgrp, race is. not intel
lectually inferior to the white race. In sup
port of this position, tho examplo of the
Moor, who ouco rulnd Spain, and wero dis-
tinguiihed for mathematical knowledge a
well as for ta'to and nkill in architecture!
tho exutApio, alo, of Augustine, tho learned
b!lioji of Hippo, injAfriai; and the high'
civilization of tho iiticient-'gyptian, havo
all, at different time, been adduced. Nuy, I
ouco heard a zealotii preacher ascrt in the
pulpit, that Kuclid, thu greatest of all ancient
mathematicians, was a negro.
Xo' gentlemen, ,cvory scholar wortiiy of
the mime, knows that those instance are, one
and all, itKipproprlalo." Not 5ne, of all thee
cao, is in point. ot ono of tho men, or the
nations thus held up to support this theory,
was of negro race. They were, it is true, all
from North Africa; and many of them woro
persons of dark complexion, at are the inhabi
tants of Northern Africa now. Tlmy might,
in n modified sense, bo termed persons of col
or, just as Hindoos and Arabs are now of a
dark color, ltut not ono drop of negro fcltwd
ran in their veint. You micht as well
that "Wu.hingtoii, and Jetforson, and Old
Hickory, were red Indian, because they were
born in North America, tho native home of
the fed Indian. Just as a French lady once
declared to tho writer, when in Paris, her,
surprise to find tiat hr, being from America,
was neither red nor black.
Central, or middle Africa, is the original
native home of the negro. Along the whole
extent of North Africa, very few negroes are
found, and they only a slaves. Kgypt was,
peopled by the detcendants of Shorn. Alex
andria in Kgypt, was a Greek colony, founded
by Alexander of Maccdoti; Carthage, the
home and birth-place of Hannibal was a l'luc
nician colony, founded by emigrants from
the ancient. city of Tyre, in I'limniria, a coun
try north of tho Holy Hand in Asia. Descen
dants from this Asiatic slock, wore both Au
gustine and Hannibal. Thoy, and the Moors
of Spain, wuro of a dark olive complexion in
all probability, as tho nutioii of north Africa,
as well at the Hindoos. So..ie of them, in
deed, aro almost black, but in no one sense aro
they negroes. In feature, in structure, or
ganization und in intellect, they fully partake
of tho qualities of tho Caucasian race, from
ono brunch of which they sprang, nnd of
-which, you and I, Messrs. Kdltors, aro speci
mens. Although, like us, descended from one
common ancostor, Noah, tho negro is, in his
physical frame, constructed differently from
tho whlto man, a difference which, whenever
and however God may havo caused it toarito
in bis organization, is now in that organiza
tion; and it admirably tits him for llfe.and
enjoyment in tho hot regions of Central Af
rica, where he is at home. Observe, then, the
negro's flat foot with its heel projecting far
back; mark tho peculiarity in tho bones of
tho leg, in the thapo and density of tho skull;
tho projecting lower jaw, tho thick, coarse
lips, the greater excitability of his largo ner
vous system, and the peculiarity of tho whole
arterial channel. All these, together with
tho dark plgmont beneath tho outer cuticle of
the skin ; the characteristic odor exhaling
from the pores, (an odor so offontlro to the
whlto race), nnd his capability for life and
health in an atmosphere much lets charged
with oxygen than is indispensable to the
whlto maa, form grounds of strong difference
(ground well known to every scientific anat
omist,; between tho two races; a difference
ijiarkcd nnd ineffaceable. Thcso distinctive
characteristics of tho negro show that ho Ik
more or less of an animal, and lest of a think
ing being, than the whlto man.
Wo aro sometimes told that tho present de
gradation of our negro population is merely
tho result of his oppression in slavery I If
this is 60, then in UU native Africa he ought
to be found inoro intelligent and refined.
Jlut, Instead of that, tho negro, as found in
Africa, is n brutish savage. For thousands of
year?, negro nations havo existed in Africa;
but even there they aro now, and always have
been, rude barbarians. Tho Caucasian race,
in whatever country thoy dwelt, havo ad
vanced in civilization. Fron Chinese (a
Mongolian raco) havo cultivated art pecu
liar to thcmsolvos, and mado somo progress
in sciences. The Hindoos, a dark skinned
branch of tho Caucasian stock, havo built
splendid temples and palaces; and thoy havo
a polished litoraturo of their own. Hut whore,
In all central Africa, or where, In any cou.n
try, will you llnd cities built, palaces and
temples orccted, soienco cultivated, or useful
inventions producod, or arts improved, by ne
groes? Or where has litoraturo flourished
among them? AVhat masterly work hasbcon
written by a negro? or what is oven tho lan
guago of tho negro?
AVhoro will you find the ruins of wealthy
cltlos, of stately palaces and tomples; or
whoro tho remains of ingeniously contrived
monuments, to show that negroes, in any
tlmo past, wero advanced In civilisation?
Their cities aro more collections of miserable
mud huts ; their palaces rudo sheds beneath
the palm tree, nnd their noblont monuments
arojiyramids of human skulls.
In many raspectf, then, tho negro is de
cidedly inferior to tho white raco; and tho at
tempt to placo negroes on n footing of entiro
equality, social and political, with whites, is,
to sny tho least.of it, a hazardous experiment.
Thero is too much ground to fear that, if suc
cessful, tho result will bo to degrade tho whole
American population; to fill tho country, and
especially thoso rciions whero tho neirro r1o.
