It ia an undeniable fad that Ute
Republican'parlyol' this State during '
the administration of Scott and
Moses had become fearfully corrupt,
and exaggerated accounts of the ill
success of thc party in this Stale was
beginning to react upon the national
Republican^ party. The pledge ol
reform with which thc parly solicited
the support of thc people of this
?State in thc last campaign have been
faithfully fulfilled and translated into
actions in a manner calculated to
strengthen thc Republican party.
Tb.et.rial and verdict against Parker
and thc recent conviction of Senator
"Walker show conclusively that fraud
and corruption is not exempt from
merited punishment, though thc laws
arc administered by Republican oW

The following is an extract from
an article in the National Monitor.,
und is worthy thc thoughtful perusal
of every colored man :
"If they would be white, they have
only to sei/.c upon the neem i rein eil ls
of the white man with thc baud ol
industry, and then do as while men
do. When thc race shall have done
this, it will find no occasion to bc
concerned about its color. The law
Of equal rights gives thc black man
the same right to object lo thc. white
man's color that it gives to tho white
man to object to thc black man's.
But how, much disposition has tho
black man to raise such a foolish ob
jection in the face of the dod he pro
fesses to serve? Just so much dis
position, and no more, will the white
man have to object to thc. color of thc
black man when, in intelligence,
wealth and piety thc black man be
comes what he. ought to be.
