article from the pen
of a gentleman " distinguished
alike for his intelligence, his piety
and his sucial standing," has
apt eared in a recent number of the
Ueliyious Herald, published in Rich
mond, Ya. We would be glad to
1 .y tho entire essay before our read
ers, but space forbids. "We therefore
simply give the points of the arti
cle v ithotit the author' able elab
oration, and without an expression
of critical opinion on our side.
The first proposition laid down is :
That (he negro race, in mental endowment,
is inferior to all other race ; and that to
yreit is this inferiority, that the negro can
neither build up of himself virilized society,
nor, if Iff t to himself, sustain and perpet
uate a denization once imparted to him ly
other racfS. This position is defended
by an argument drawn from tho
scientific anatomy of the negro's
skull, and by numerous citations
from ancient history, showing that
that they were slaves among tho
Romans, Grecks,Egyptians and other
ancient people. Tie compares San
Domingo, " the gem of the ocean
while the Franks beautified its sur
face by generous tillage," to it3 pres

econd proposition is: That, .

are patent and imply no denial ol
the ilosaie record. Physiology shows

tween the black and white races,
which human agencies nre impotent
The third proposition is : That in

U, he says, a hybrid can bo formed
by amalgamation, inferior in physi-
que and maral to the white race,
but superior to the black. " Thus to
solve it, howevr, I hold to be a
crime against botn country and race ; about 4 o'clock on yesterday morn
and harsh as the ser.timent may inn- in the Senflletown fspe-'nn. bv
seem, I express it, 'twere nobler and
better in humanity to exterminate by
the sword. Thus to level down
wards is a crime against the nobler
race : it mars the variety and beauty
of the natural creation ; introduces
confusion in the handiwork of the
Creator ; abstructs the progress and
injures the well-being of society."
The article is truly one of ability,
abounding in facts of research and
extensive reading and observation,
and it would be well perhaps if it
conld be more generally read. We
give the authors closing paragraph :
I have attempted to show, by re
ference to evtry instance in history
in which the negro race acquired by
contact the civilization of their
captors, it was lost so soon as the in
tlu ince of tho superior race ceased;
that equality in mental improvement
and social retiuement is beyond the
reach of human agency, and that
approximate equality could only be
reached by amalgamation, with my
earnest protest against such method
of escape from the eviU of the
presence of the African in our midst,
it may be well to remember these
things in adopting any fixed policy in
plans to improve the negro. He
must a3 such ever occupy the lowest
seat in the great American synagogue;
he can neither reach nor ap. roach,
the leaders in commerce, agriculture,
science- or art. Under the influence
of example, he may maintain the
status already reached. Beyond this,
I am without any decided hope.
Collegiate education fur him manifests
a zeal without knowledge Such
familiarly with letters as shall
enable hitn to read the word to God,
may aid the rac3 to survive amid the
conflicts of free society, in perform
ing the menial labors to which he is
doomed; yet a knowledge of the
methods of work, in mechanics, agri
culture and the household, is of far
greater importance to him; and any
system designed to withdraw from
tho fL'ld-. and workshop our colored
population, into the sc lool-rooms, in
which to lit them for the highest
duties in our a dvancod social life, is
radically wro-isr, and -yr ill eurelv
bring ouiy misibrtune and misery,
in tlie higher spheres of duty, he
may not compete with his white
brother; in menial labors lie may.
Fit hm for this, and all is done
which can be well done.
V e had tho pleasure of a conver
sation with Gen. W. Ii. Cox, Chair

the people to insure us a handsome
victory this bummer.
THE UNIVERSITY. 1
U dues seem sometimes that, iiot ;
only do the Kadieals subserve all
branches of government towards
party and individual aggrandizement,
but iu eases where there can be no
good aecruiug to their party without
a corresponding advantage to the
state at large, they are bent against
it, for fear some one else beside their
own vultures might be benefited.
They seem to bo altogether bent upon
working wickedness, and really seem
to clog improvement for fear it may , rolina' wros i indeed an - illiad Fined or imprisoned for not pro

It is said that three thousand wo

over seven thousand in number. In

would accomplish a more lasting
