to make a aot speech is the senior seuator
from Kansas, Tjigalla, Hia terse, caustic

Invective compels attention and enchains u
terent Such waa the caie yesterday In the
senate. Ingalls bad been announced to de
liver a peech on the race question, and the
only part of the chamber not crowded was
the diplomatic gallery. On tbe floor were a
number of promineut mn betildtse a full at
tendance of sonators. Among tboee present
were were Secretary Rusk and Gen. N. P.
Banks, and when at S p. m. the senator roan
there was scarcely standing room. As be
rose tbe hum of conversation ceased, and
from that time on every ear was strained to
catch what the speaker said.
The Indomitable t'ancalan.
Ue began by saying that the Caucasian
race was arrogant, exclusive, pretentious
and indomitable. It either ruled or anni
hilated other races. It assimilated with no
race but its own. Its contributions to the
state were undividuulism, liWty, fraternity
and equolity. In tho United States these
contributions had b-en most marked. Here
evry creed found a sauctuury, every wrong
a redrew. I3ut now we were confronted
with the greatest prob'em ever presented to
a free people. He eulogized II. W. Orody
and bail the clerk read a long extract
from that gentleman's speech at Boston in
December last. Continuing he called atten
tion to the Increase of the colored population
between 1H60 and 1870 which was only 80,000,
while the increase between 1S70 and 1S30
was put at S, 100,000, a figure which he de
clared represented a gisantic and premedi
tated fraud, committed with a purpose that
Of,pod to Amalgamation.
Mr. Ingalls then discussed the question of
amalgamation. He credited the ability of
Fred Douglass to the reinforcement of white
blood in that illnstrious representative of
the negro race, and antagonized the conclu
sion stated by ilr. Douglass that when preju
dice disappeared the races would become
homogeneous. This waa impossible, and if
posaible was undesirable. Tbe white and
black ba.1 never come togothor except by
compulsion, and then it was always the
black woman who was the virtlin the chil
dren had never hail white mothers, it was al
ways white fathers. Adulteration of race
was a fatal poison.
- So Superiority or Virtue North.
Tie proposed to accede to the request of the
seuator from South Carolina, that in discuss
ing the iue there be uo animadversion; it
it was not needed; the facta Were criticism
sutliciently bitter for the state of affairs in
toe south, ine north bud no superiority of
virtue to boast of. The speaker ancestors
had owned slaves, and the New England
conscience aui not prii K tt until ilave own
ing ceased to be protltable. Neither was the
war for the Union a light for the freedom of
the slave, so far as a large portion of the
northern people were concerned. Also, the al
legation that tbe liov-ro had been enfran
chised to perpetuate tbe Republican party
was a calumny that was old enough to be
Status of the Colored Man.
IToceemng. Mr. Ingalls said that proba
bly, u it were possible, both racea would
prefer that the negro should not be here.

in Avalanche had stated tbnt "Chalmers

boi reaearcu ior illustration. Ho would ex-
nume no railn vers. I bis extract was orbited

The Avalnnche hud said deliberately that
the south did not propose to be governed bv

count or this condition of allairs, Gen. Chal

governor, lagalis quoted at length from
Oen. Chalmers' address to the Republican
voters of Mississippi. He considered that
address, he said, one of the most tragio ut
tarauces that hod ever occurred in political
The F.lertlon at Jackson, Mlaa.
Seventeen days ago there had been an
other election in Mississippi with which the
country was somewhat familiar. He sent
to me ciorK s uosk lo be read an extract
from Thu Jackson Clarion of Jan. 2. In
this extract was the constant reiteration of
the announcement that the "regulars." "the
bulldoters," etc., would lie on hand to see
that there was a "fair election. n At the end
of the reading Ingalls remarked, senten-
tlously: "They were all there, Mr. Presi
dent.- Laughter. Ingalls then read an ex
tract from correspondence about the elec
tion, telling that lt had been controlled by
V ineheater rifles, and that no neero had
been allowed within 100 yards of the votine
place. He also road a letter from a federal
efUcer stating that two sons of Senator
Ueorge had Own In the crowd of regulators
armed with Winchesters, and wearing badges
neaued: v nite Mupremacy." Was it any
wonder, he said, that Democrats themselves
had become aiarmsd at this condition of
r-raillrttnir a Crist.
Thu south, said Ingalls, evidently intended
to deprive the negroes ot their vote and of
their independence; and practically the
north bad acquiesced in this. Attempts had
been made to pass civil rights laws aud fed
eral electiou laws, but they had failed. The
negro had been abandoned by the north. But
ne wisiiea to warn the peoule of the south
that tho north, the west, the east would not
allow their commerce, their ninnufnnturea,
and thoir social condition to be modified by
nxei-uuve and congressional majorities ob
tained by the suppression of the colored vote
or of any other vote. No one could tell how
long this patient endurance of the north
would continue; but that the crisis would
come. In peace or in blood, was tne inexora
ble decree of fate.
Armed Collision Inevltll.
If this condition of affairs continued noth
ing could avert armed collision between tbe
races In tbe south. Ultimately the colored
race would be strong enough to resist vio

i ne south was standing on a volcano. It
was sitting on tbe safetv valve It vm
breeding innu merable John Browns and Nat
lurnera. Already the use of the torch and
the dagger was advised. He deplored it;
but as Uod was hU Judge no other race in the
history of the world had submitted to the
wrongs heaped upon the ntirro in the last
twenty-five years without revolution and
bloodshed. Ingalls sent to the clerk's dk
to be read newspaper extracts to show thnt
the "theory of extermination" was already
being put into practice,. fx one of these it
was stated that 1.V5 negroas were lyn-hed in
AliseiBeippl last year.
A Warning to the South.
The negro, the senator said, was t o cow
ard. He had been brought here a prisoner
of war. Tbe Athenians bad erected a status
to .sop, who was born a slave. The Amer
ican nation should also place the slave "upon
an eternal pedestal." His conduct had been
most admirable. Despotism made niiiilists;
tyranny communists; injustice wu the
greatest manufacturer of dynamite. The
murderer wounded himself w hen he s abbed
hia victim. The south should remembi -r that
there was nothing so unprofitable as injus
tice and that God was a releutless cn ditor.
Tbe south was in greater danger ths n the
enfranchised slave. It bad loaded itself
with heavier manacles than thoe with which
it bad burdened the negro,
No Real Conciliation Tet.
There was no affection between tbe north
and tbe south. The south had not fo given
the north for its supremacy and its anterior
ity. If tbe south could bold the purs and
the sword it was patriotic. The sout had
not accepted the amendments to the consti
tution in good faith. Tbey bad theli own
heroes and universities. They exalted their
leaders above tbe leaders of the Union sause.
Until these conditions were changed co-operation
in solving the southern problem
could not be expected from tbe north. The
south mast tread the wine press alone. He
could undf-rsta, d the reverence of thetouth
ern peopie for Jefferson Davis. He ho lored
them for their constancy to that lieroio
man. Ideas could ever be annlhilatec. Nc
man was ever converted by being overpow

The NeKro Capable of ClvilUatlor,.
The black race, he said, was eapab a of

progress than could well hava been exaect-

tory to Justify the belief that the Af icsn
could compete with the Caucasian in art
practical affairs, but there was no reason to
believe that he was not capable of bigl. civ

Chicago, Jan. 24. A most distressing
accident which resulted in the death of four
persons occurred at Rose Hill cemetery, a
rew miles from here, on the Chicago and
Northwestern road yesterday afternoon.
Air. and Mrs. . Fred Payne were on their
way to bury their 5-months-old babe with a
few friends who were accompany them to
tbe cemetery. There were only four carriage
in the procession. Mr. and Mrs. Payne were
in tlie carriage immediately following the
hearse, and w ith them were Mrs. William
Keprogul and Grace Payne, their little
daughter. As the Payne's carriage came
squarely on the track, tbe Milwaukee ex
press, which was four minutes behind time
and was Bearing tbe city at a high rate of
speed, struck the carriage in the center,
tearing it into splinters and instantly kill
ing Mrs. and Mrs. Payne and so seriously
injuring Mrs. Reprogol and Simon Ander
son, the driver of the carriage, that they
died within two hours afterward.
Hoena After Disaster.
A cry of horror arose from the people as
soou as tbe extent of tho tragedy was real
ized. Some of the women in the carriages
fi.iuted, w hile others wrung their bands as
they ran distractedly over the snow. Sev
eral hundred feet to tbe south was tbe train
at a full stop, with curious passengers
scrambling out of the coaches. Men hastily
began the work of recovering the dead and
wounded. Tbe shock that hud shaken the
flowers on the little white coilln had hurled
the mother of tbe dead lie by into a barb
wire fence, where she hung by her head
corpse, with the blood streaming through
the black veil which she wore. In the ditch
and close to the track of the railway was
tne young rather, with his skull crushed and
the blood trickling over the snow and peb
bles. He, too, was dead. Father and mother
bad perished instantly. "They never uttered
a word after tbe crash came. Mrs. Payne
was taken from the fence by her brother,
who carried her in his arms and criad hyster
ically as he sought some place to put her.
Mrs. ruplog.-l lay near the track. So did

The Funeral Want Its Way.
The white horse with the body of the
baby continued iu journey to tbe grave
yard, wncre the coffin was plaoed in the
vault. The victims of the express train
were borne to one of tbe coaches. Mr. and
Mrs. Payne were horribly mangled.
All who witnessed or know anything of
the occurrence agree that no warning what
ever of its approach was given by the flying

where the accideut took place, but that the

Growth of Hia Menagerie Sinee IS61
Philadelphia, Jan. 24. Adam Fore
paugb, tbe veteran showman, died peacefully
in this city shortly before midnight Wednes
day. The cause of death was heart failure.
ujxji iuaiu-eu oy pneumonia, wnien was
brought on by an attack of tbe grip. He
was out attending to his work at his winter
quarters and repair shops a week ago yester
day. 1. D. Hayes Agnew was called
inio consultation u ednesday, and it was
thought the sick man would pull through.
He was talking with young Adam Wednes
day night about plans for perpetuating the
circus. He then arose, went to an armchair.
drank a glass of milk, and died in three mln
utes. He simply went into a perpetual sleep,
and neither suifered nor knew bis end bad
come. Mr. Forepaugh owned 211 houses in
this city, and other real estate. His profit
from his circus ran from $200,000 to 1300,000.
He was just finishing a sumptuous house
near bis present residence, and expected soon
to move into it. His father, four brothers,
and one sister survive him.
Began Life as a Butcher's Boy.
Mr. Forepaugh was born in Philadelphia
in 1SJ0. He went to work when a small boy
for John Klnckle, a butcher, at a salary of
14 a month and bis board, and remained
with Hinckle for several years. When lo
years old tbe boy ran away and went to
work for a butcher in Cincinnati, staying
there two years, receiving $50 for bis first
year's work, and $10 a mouth during the re
mainder of the time. With some short in
tervals, in which be followed other business,
Adam stuck to the butcher's trade until
ltyfS, when be started a stage line and ran it
until 1S54. This business led him to bny and
sell horses, and from this be drifted into ths
cattle trada His business grew as the man
developed, and in a single year he bought
and sold as many as 10,000 horses.
Takes an Interest In a Show.
In the course of his business he dealt with
John O'Brien, who was then running a
small circus, and in 1661 he sold him sixty
two horses for $9,000 and took an interest in
the show as part payment This was Mr.
Forepaugh's first step in the circus business,
in which he was to become so famous. After
a few months he bought O'Brien circus and
then bought Jerry Mable's menagerie and
combined them. Mable's menagerie con
sisted of two elephants and eight other ani
mals, for which Mr. Forepaugh paid $42,000.
This was in 1805.
Tli Salary for Dan Rice.
He hired Dan Rice at $1,000 a week, in or
der to advertise that then well-known name
as an adjunct of his show, and kept him at
that salary for three seasons. This was a
big expenditure at that time, but the ven
ture was successful. For eight years Mr.
Forepaugh continued to enlarge his show,
investing all profits in increasing and better
ing bis plant Other showmen predicted his
speedy ruin when be bad got together
twenty cages of animals, but he kept on, un
til in lsTfl he bad forty -four cages. At that
time he gave up trying to move his show by
wagon, and had trains built expressly for his
"aggregation" as he called it.
Con Into a "Trust" with Barnum.
Since that time be had kept on building
np and amplifying his show until be was a
recognized rival of the perennial Barnum.
After some little competition the two show-
men came to an understanding and planned
their tours so that tbey would not cross each
other's line or march, and for the last few
years Barnum has never exhibited in Phila
delphia, which town Mr. Forepaugh always
caiioa nis noma. in the early Cos Fore
paugh's show was about the only one travel
ing tnrougn tbe country that might claim to
have a first-class menagerie. Barnum at the
time was conducting his museum at the
corner of Broadway and Ann street. New
York, and so did not come into competition
iui iue xuuaueipman.
Always 11 ad Good Lack.
Bhow printing was not then the art that it
is to-day, and Forepaugh's six-sheet posters
wero considered a marvel During his
whole career Mr. Forepaugh never had any
bad luck, money wisa He bought improved
real estate rreeiy in fbiladelnlna and Brook
lyn, and some years ago his houses and lands
were worth $o0u,UXi. His wealth at the
time of bis death is estimated at t2.000.000
He was a careful manager and paid personal
attention to an tbe details of his business.
