Aid Society at Chicago.
Chicago. Dec. 26. The twenty-second an
niversary of the Freedmen's Aid and South
ern Education society is now being celebrated

J. C. Hartxell. corresponding seoretirv. and
Dr. W P Thirkield. president of tbe Gam
mon theological seminary of Atlanta. Oa
Siacrstary Hartaell's Addresa.
In his address Secretary Hartztdl paid an
eloquent tribute to the people of tbe south,
and said that the institutions foundei by
tbe society were fast growing iniependent,
dither becoming sel f-supportbef or being
supported by the friends of the work in that
section Dr Hortxall closed his address by
saying that tbe growth of sentiment in fa
vor of the education of the negro ot tbe
south was remarkable. "Southern states
tbat twenty years ago called it a peniten
tiary offense to educate a blank man.'' said
the speaker, "are now giving thousands of
dollars annually for the very cause thev once
so bitterly opposed. "
A I re Roseate View.
Rev Dr. Thirkield did not give such a
rosy picture of affairs south. He painted in
the blackeat coiors the condition of the
negro in the south He gave many instances
of the cruelty with which the black man
was treated and said tbat lust ire to him un
der the existing circumstances was au im
possibility. Said he: "The brutality of the
whites, the work of the sbotsun. tbe uni
versal injustice to which thev are subjected.
will not always serve to bold the negroes to
the earth, and if the influence of the religion
of Jesu.- Christ is not soon felt as a reform
ing K.wer the black man will break his own
shackles aud all the world will tremble with
tbe thunders of the uprising " He said con
