Friendsi and i'ellow Citizens
1 returned fiom the country a fCw
miittes Since, and was informed that
som1e colored men had called at. my
ofice, to invite me to attend this meet
ing. I appreciate this act of kitndness,
confidc'e and friendship on their part.
My colored friends, we aro Soithern
niW. bornl upion the samle sol, live in
thoIusame counitry. and will sleep in the
same grave-yaril when life's toils are
over ; and our destiny is the same. If you
proSper, the whiite race of the South
will prosper; and if the white race
prospers, you must pt'osper; and what
over misfortmo is visited upon the South
must be borne alike by both races. It
is alike your duty and interest to ciuliti
v'ate friendly relations witht your neig~h
bors and formetr owners, who are to-day,
and ever hove been, your best ft ionds.
For one, 1 can proudly say that no one
in this assembly can assert that [ over
opressed him whetn ho was asav.
On one occasion I fought for y'on in
theso streets. On another, when a
white mtan had been wvaylayed and
imurdered, and his neighbors had as
sembledl, mnd taken the law int their
htands with the avowved purpose of exe..
cuttog the twvo supposed leaders, w~ho
wvere colored tmen, I interpiosed, with
otheors, and succeeded in having thtem
placed in jail atnd a fair trial given them.
One was cotnvicted rand hung; the other
acquit ted, andc still liver.
'.Uhe Senator from Massachutsetts, who
has just. addressed you, and wvho lives
soveral thousand miles distant., has ex
plained to you the object of his political
iilgrimange Soni~h. He lias challenged
n(ye o proewnt, to meet him in disens
sion to-night., and has offered to divido
time with ainy one who would accept.
I was horn and raised in the South, and
hope to be burtied in her soil. I have
met the bxave mn of theo North on
many fields ; they ontunimbered and
overcame us; and I certaitily have no
fear of their politicians. But for my
family, life wvould have but few chaums
for me. Neither the fear of' the gal.
lows, the gibbet, or' the bayonet, will
over cause mec to desert my people,
forsake this brightt Sotuthiern land which
gave me birth, or deter me from the
expressionl of my honest sentiment tunder
any oircumetances. Some youing South
ern Radicals, who have recently ad
dressed youl, say~ that the Sheorm.un bill,
wvhich they are Qdvocating, would dis.
franchise them, and, hence their efforts
wvere purely nnsellsh, whilst at the time
their appientions to be relieved from
the disabilities of that measure are nond
Jng at Washtington, and they are doubt
less expecting to call oni you for your
votes at the nezuxt elections for this
I will here state my own positioni
braiefly on this poinit.
L belie yo that Bill is unconstitutional
-I believe it is oppressive to a certain
class of Our best m1en11.
As soon as that Bill passed Conagres;
a high Federal oflicial with the kinadest
feclings for ie personally, said to ie:
"You were not an original secessionist.
Co)gres will remove your disabilities
under Ltle Sherman Bill. You must
send onl an applicationi, tad 1. will ap
prove it, anuad hlpy11 ou to get ai, through."
I replied that the lepublican party had
no right tinder the Constittition to dim,
franchise me, and I would never ask for
reliet at their hands, and that is nmy po
sition to night.
The honoralo Senator from Ma3,
chiasets las sail some thmltgs which
ev ince good fceling on his part, and
whicl I approve. I Ih bias also said many
thiungs from which I mutist di-ss-enat, and

I will prove to you that the Nortl is
responsible for the existence of slavery

I am fniak to say thait there weore fen
utres in slavery which were wrong.
Many years ago, nmy fricuds, before
tle United States had an ea-xistenace as a
nation, your forefathiers inhabited the
homes of your race-A frica. The North.
ern people, who were then as now a
commercial people, owning manty ships,
went to the coast of Africa (and bought
som and stole or kidiapped yoir
graifathers amd mothers, placed thom
i tho holds of their vessels inl great
munbers, and in chains took s:me few
to their Northern hom es, and sent mo.st
of I hem to be sold to the Sout hern peo.
ple for slaves. In this work thea-y hadl
valuabhle co-laborers in the 10aglish and
Spanish. By. this traflic inl Iman Ilesl
they imlale large sums of Ionev.
The Soutlaern people, as a general
rule. were opposedl Lo the slave trale.
and when the Colonies threw off tha
yoke of Great Iritain, te- Southera
Colonies anongst t hem, aId one of tle
principal reasonis whiclI thcy paublished
to the world in justification of their
cause, was 1lastt, e mother country had
imosed iaverv and the slave trade upon
them atiom s their wishie.
When our indepentidlene -*as le
kinowledge'-d and we formited a Union of
the Cloanies, the South was still oppesed
to lie slave trade, :an1d it would have
been declared piracy, and halfof yotur
race inl tihe United StItes, would not
have been here now, but in Africa;
-ba. t-le Northern 11men engaged inl the
trade found it to be so profitable, and
so enirely free from anv conscieneioas
scriples were they, itat they insisted
that their piouis ope-ations should con
tne twenty years longer. and the
South yicled. These slave traders in
vested their money in lands, houses and
othier propemty North, which madel many
of their grand ehildren or great grand
children rich, and some of whom are
now leading Republicants.
The slave holders of the Northern
States did the same thing itn most. inlstan.
ces by sending their slaves to Virginia
ad other Southern States and selling
them when their slave labor becameI
less profitable mn a cold climate than
white labor, and have since amused them
selves by ab)using t-ho Soutlherna people
as slave drivers--and thec Senator, 1-la
descendanat of these men, is here to
niighit reminiding you of the wrong you
have received at 1-la hands of your for
iner masters, and advising you to avoid
political allhances wvith' your fiinds sand

wvould have been much larger- in t-ho
Souath. More slaves have beena freed
by thle act of their owners im the South~
thant at the North. George WVashaing

lie freed at his death. Mr Randolph
did thte sanie. Gener-al Oglothorpe op
