against Jewesh principles to allow any of

is made for widows and orphans. Efficient
societies, liberally provided with funds, sup
ply the poor with food, help the old people
as t^ey need, and bury the dead. Some of
the froe hospitals in London have Jewish
wards, but all the expenses of those wards
are paid for from the treasury of Jewish
organizations. If any ablebodied persons
are out of employment and need help, they
receive no gratuity, but are accommodated
with a temporary loan, and the cases are
said to be rare in which these debts are
not fully repaid.

?The Cincinnati Gazette, of March 30th,
has a dispatch saying that the murderous
Klu Klux Clan left documents at Mr. Pat
rick Hanney's house, near Waverly, Tenn.,
a few days ago, warning him to quit the
country. He had paid no attention to it,
but kept on with his work. Subsequently a
large company of Rebels, disguised and
armed, dragged him out of his house and
about midnight carried him to a creek three
miles distant, tied a rope around his neck,
dragged him and down the creek, pulled
out his hair and beard, kicked and whipped
him, and left him lying unconscious in the
wood. He was found the following even
ing by his wife. Mr. Hanney is well known
in Nashville as a lover of the Union. The
Klu Klux Klan visited the house of George
Bryant, colored, last night, eight miles from
Nashville, and demanded admission. Not
having any faith in their ghostly profess
ions, the colored man denied them admis
sion, but levelled his gun at them, and then
they made a precipitate retreat. He recog
nized in one of the scoundrels a neighbor
named Warren, and has taken out a warant
fo; his arrest The Yidette (Kla Klux Klan
organ) has published an extra, warning
Union men and negroes not to leave their
homes until after the election.

Win* should not the rights and privileges
of every person, no matter how humble, be
recoguized and acknowledged ? We think
no candid and thoughtful mind will per
ceive anything uukind or unreasenable in
these just and simple provisions. Yet the
old politicians are howling, and gnashing
their teeth, and trying to make the people
believe there is something revolting about
these requirements. There is really no
sense or sincerity in their irrational oui cry.
They affect to believe that there is great
danger of "negro supremacy," but the mere '
statement of the fact makes their pretend
ed alarm appear merely coutemptible. No.
their greatest anxiety, the cause of all their
noise about negro domination, and so forth,
is founded on the fact that, they are about
to lose their position. The old fellows
tvould willingly permit the people to as
jume the risk of defeating reconstruction,
of prolonging military rule in the State, and
of preventing an early return to peaceful
?nd prosperous times, if their selfish ob
jects can be accomplished. Wc have faith
that the people will repudiate the selfish
and miserable men who are attempting to
mislead them by raising a clamor over such
small and despicable questions, or rather
prejudices. We are of opinion t hat the peo
ple are looking beyond and above them ;
that they are casting anxious and longing
eyes towards this golden era of peace : and
that they comprehend the fact that this
must be brought about by voting for recon
struction. Voters remember that.
Every thing in the political world points
to the organization of a new party. Re
publicans and Democrats alike pull unevenly
and uneasily in their party harness, looking
for relief in the starting here and there of
some new organ, or the resuscitation of
some old party hack for the Presidency; not
seeing that the time has come when old
things are to pass away and all things are
to be made new. This war has not only
ended negro slavery on this continent, but
it has given the death blow to every form of
aristocracy, to the leading of the many by
the few. Our crafty rulers turn pale as they
read the handwriting o a the wall.
Let not the people wait for caucuses, con
ventions, or campaigns, but rise up now
and quickly, or another President will be
foisted on the nation to gratify some person
al pique or party spleen. A quarrel between
Greely and Weed gave us Lincoln and John
son, and the same quarrel is to give us Chase
or Grant, unless the people by some mighty
throe uproot this dynasty of rottonness. The
great lesson for Americans to learn is, that
every citizen has an individual interest and
responsibility in the welfare of this nation.

address of the colored state
Saturday November 24th 1865.
Fellow Citizens.?We have assem
bled s3 delegates representing the eoi- .
ored people of the State of South Caro
lina, in the capacity of State Convention,
to confer together and to deliberate upon
our intelectual, moral, industrial, civil
and political condition as affected by the
great changes which have taken place
in this State and throughout this whole
country, and to devise ways and means
which may, through the blessing of God,
tend to our improvement, elevation, and
progress; fully believing that our cause,
is one which commends itself to all ^ood
men throughout the civilized world ;
that it is the sacred cause ?>f truth and
rightiousness ; that it particularly ap
peals to those professiug to be governed
by that religion which teaches to "do
unto ali men as you would have them
do unto you."
These principles we conceive to em
body the great duty of man to his fel
low man ; and, as men. we . ask only to
be included in a practical application of
this principle.
AYe feel that the justness o? our cause
is a sufficient apology for our course at
this time. Heretofore we have liad no
avenues opened to us or our children_
we have had no firesides that we could
call our own ; none of those incentives
to work for the development of our
minds and the aggrandizement of our
race in common with other people. The
measures which have been adapted ten
tile development of white men's children
have been denied to us and ours. The
laws which have made white men great
have degraded us, because we wereidack,
and because we were reduced to chattel
slavery. But now that we are freemen,
now that we have been lifted up by the
providence of (rod to manhood, we have
resolved to come forward, and, like men.
to speak and act for ourselves. We ful
ly recognize the truth of the maxim
that "God helps those who help them
selves. " Jn making this appeal to you,
we adopt the language of the immortal
Declaration of Independence, uthat all
moti are created equal/' and that "lifo,
liberty, and the pursuit of happiness"
are the right of all ;? that taxation and
representation should go together; that
governments are to protect, not to des
troy, the rights of mankind ; that the
Constitution of the United States was
formed to establish justice, to promote
t he general welfare, and secure the bless
ings of liberty to all the people of this
.country ; that resistance to tyrants is
obedience to God,?are American prin
ciples and maxims ; and together they
form the constructive elements of the
American Government.
We think we fully comprehend and
duly appreciate the principles and meas
uros which compose this platform : and
all that we desire or ask for is to bo plac
ed in a position that we could conscien
tiously and legitimately defend, with
you, those principles against the surges
of despotism to the last drop of our blood.
We have not come together in battle ar
ray to assume a boastful attitude and to
talk loudly of high-sounding principles
or unmeaning platforms, nor do we pre
tend io any great boldness ; for we know
your wealth and greatness, and our pov
erty and weakness; and although we feel
keenly our wrongs, still we come togeth
er, we trust, in a spirit of meekness and
of patriotic good-will to all the people of
the State. But yet it is some consola
tion to know [and it inspires us with
hope when we reflect]that our cause is
not alone the cause of live millions black
men in the country, but we are intense
ly alive to the fact that it is also the
cause of millions of oppressed men in
other "parts of God's beautiful earth."
who are now struggling to be free in the
fullest sense ofthat word ; and God and
nature are pledged in its triumph. We
are Amerieaus by birth, and we assure
you that we are Americans in feeling; and
in spite of all wrongs which we have
long and silently endured in this coun
try, we would still exclaim with a full
heart. "0 America! with all thy faults
we love thee still.' '
Breathes thero a man with soul so dead
Who never to himself hath said?
"This is niy own, my native land !"
Whose heart hath ne'er within him hurned
As borne his footsteps he hath tamed.
From wandering in a foreign strand ?
Thus we would address you not as Reb
els and enemies, but as friends and fel
low countrymen, who desire to dwell
amone you in peace, and whose desti
nies are interwoven, and linked with
those of the American people, and hence
must be fulfilled in this country. As
deeendents of a race feeble and oppress
ed, we might with propriety appeal to a
great and magnanimous people like
Americans, for special favors and en
couragement, on the principle that the
strong should aid the weak, the learned
should teach the unlearned.
But it is for no such purposes that we
raise our voices to the people of South
Carolina on this occasion. We ask for
no special privileges or peculiar favors.
We ask only for even-handed Justice,
or for the removal of such positive ob
structions and disabilities as past, and
the recent Legislators have seen fit to
throw in our way, and heap upon us.
Without any rational cause or provo
caron on our part, of which we are con
scious, as a people we, by the action of
your Convention and Legislature, have
been virtually, and with few exceptions
excluded from, first, the rights of citizen
ship, which you cheerfully accord to
strangers but deny to us, who have been
torn and reared" in your midst, who
were faithful while your greatest trials
were upon you. and have done nothing
since to merit your disapprobation. 1
We are denied the right of giving our
testimony in like manner with that of
our white fellow citizens, in the courts
of tiie State, by which our persons and 3
property are subject to every species of :
violence, insult and fraud without re- <
dress. :
We are also by the present laws, not <
only denied the ,right of citizenship, the
inestimable right of voting for those who 1
rule over us in the land of our birth. *
but by the so-called Black Code we are 1
deprived the rights of the meanest prof- I
l?gate, iu the country,?the right to en- <
gage in any legitimate business free from ]
any restraints, save those which govern ?
all other citizens of this State. 1
You have by your Legislative actions 1
placed barriers in the way of our educa
tional and mechanical improvement, you !
have given us little or no encouragement
to pursue Agricultural pursuits, by re
fusing to sell to us lands, but organize
societies to bring foreigners to your
country, and thrust us out or reduce us
to a serfdom, intolerable to men born
amid the progress of American genius,
and national development.
Your publie journals charge us with
destroying the products of the country
since we have been made free, when
they know that the country and pro
ducts thereof were destroyed by ravages '
of war of four years duration. How
unjust to charge upon the innocent and
helpless the crimes o?" the very class who
have subjected them to all disadvantages,
and ruined themselves and the country!
We simply desire that we shall be
recognized as men ; that we have no ob
structions placed iu our way ; that the
same laws which govern white men shall
direct blaek men : that we have the ri?ht
of trial by a jury of our peers ; that
schools be opened or established fur our
children; thus be permitted to acquire
homesteads for ourselves and children,
that we.be dealt with as others in equity
and justice.
We claim the confidence and o-ood
will of all classes of men; wc ask that
the same chances be extended to us that
freemen should demand at the hands of
their fellow citizens. We desire the pros
perity and growth of this State, and the
well being of all men, and shall be found
ever struggling tu elevate ourselves and
adii to the national character, and we
trust the day will not be distant when
you will acknowledge that by our rapid
progress in moral, social, religious, and
intellectual development that vou will
cheerfully accord to us the hijfh coni
mi lation that we are worthy, with you
to enjoy all the political emoluments?
when we shall realize the truth that "all
men are endowed by their creator with t
inalienable rights/' and that on the
America?1 continent this is the right of
all, whether he come from east west,
north, or south : and, although complex
ions may differ, "a man's a man for a'
Our appeal is based on justice ; but
we do not rely solely upon that : we ap
peal to your generosity. We are op
pressed and powerless. It is iu your
power to do us justice, and grant us rhe
opportunity to elevate ourselves. A
gracious and all wise Providence has
placed it in your power to decide1 wheth
er our future shall be gilded with hope
or darkened by despair, whether you
will become the generous helpers of those
emerging from a degraded servitude in
to the glorious light of liberty, or place
obstacles in our path.
We do sincerely hope that you will
grant your petitioners desires. We are
natives of this State, and we feel assur
ed that nothing is needed to render our
future relations mutually beneficial, but ,
the bestowment of the rights we ask. 1

In Chicago some months ago, Rich
ard Buckley stopped at the store of
Bones & George, bargained for a lot of
cabbages, had them put into his wagon,
and on the question being asked, told
one of the clerks he had paid for them ;
but was not able to point out the person
who received the money, and no one
could be found who remembered receiv
ing it. Nevertheless. Mr. Buckley re
fused to pay, and started to drive off
with the property. At tbe request o?
one of the firm, Buckley was then ar
rested by a policeman, taken to the Po
lice Court, charged with larceny, and,
on a statement of the ease was held to
bail in ?300. He has now sued Bones
k George for causing his arrest, and an
intelligent jury awards him $3000.

you use it far good or ill. The white

the whites, and the rate is daily increas
in?r. Emigration has carried of thou

while it already begins to fill their
places with whites froia Europe. Let
nut your pride, nor yet your pretended
friends. Hatter you into the belief that
you ever can or ever will, for anv length
or time, govern the white men of the
South. The world has never seen such
a spectacle, and its whole history, and
especially the history of your race. <dves
no ground for the anticipation. "Per
haps, however, you expect fco attain
power by the aid of the Radical party
at the North. The Almighty in ll?s
wisdom, ( Perhaps to prevent the amal
gamation of the separate races which he
created and marked ), has implanted in
every human breast a sentiment called
prejudice (./race; and when this feeling
is one of the strongest and most univer
sal passions of our natures. When your
rare was among us as slaves, this senti
ment slumbered, and only a compassion I
for you influenced every honest hear!?
those among your masters?to treat you I
kindlv ; those who believed you wron"*
' -
cd. desired to set you free. When you
were set free compassion ceased to exist.
When undue power was given you by
tho Radical party, (from motives which
all men depreciated and despised),pre
judice of race sprang up. The whites o?*
this State endeavored to allay it?here
at ]ea-:t?by inviting you to a course and
a compromise which would have given
it nothing to feed upon. But their ef
forts resulted in such an utter failure,
that it would be mortifying had it not
been Christian duty to make the effort
very step of your political career, so
far has cultivated this prejudice, until il
now speaks aloud in Kurland and is
already rapidly changing the pol?tes el

which must soon prove the death of the
Radical party. It is too strong to be re
sisted, beiti;'' the opcr,;t:on of a law of
nature. Do you not *ee it even in Your
white Radical friends, in spite of theirin
dustrious efToits to conceal it, so lonj; as

To repeat, then, as we began : Your
present power must surely and soon pass
from yon. Nothing that it builds will
stand, and nothing will remain of it but
the prejudices it may create, ft is
therefore, a most dangerous tool that

in the storm that follows. Already they
have driven away all capital and credit

you are thrown out of employment, and '
starve simply tor the lack of work. 1
What fow enterprises arc carried on are
nlv the work of Southern meo, who
hav e faith that the present state of affairs
is but temporary. The world does nof
offer better opportunities for the employ- j
