God Sends th? Food and the Devil
Sends the Cook.
Snt-h is the old proverb, and we accord?
ingly introduce you, dear reader, lo a cer?
tain Mr. Clarence Cooke, a contributor to
the Independent, a quasi religions paper.
Mr. Cooke is the prophet of misoegnation.
Ile undertakes to enlighten the white race
as to the.qualities of th? black. He gi vos
us to understand that tho white race is
something of a failure; a great, mistake,
perhaps, in which we could never l>y any
possibility get right or set.th; down in ?mr
tine Malus, itnless a certaiu thing shall
happen, ifrhat is that? you ask. lt is
wiseegnation-the amalgamation <>f tho
black with thc white bloody thet alone
shall save the while race fruin perdition.
Withou t" this amalgam, we aro to reaf:l>.
no high condition in art or civilization.
"Wo must owe ii. all lo C?fico and tb o
daughters of Cuffee. "Jmetruc philosopher
will now take a uegro wife, and become a
proper heir of grace and a typo of superior
excellence, l'util .this incorporation is
complete, a fig for all j our Saxon, Gothic
or Celtic performances. Great- painters
and great poets you are not to expect, nor
groat philosophers. You will need some
three generations under this benign dis.
pensation of miscegnation, before you
shall develop to thc perfect standards ot
Mr. Clarence Cooke, whom, from ?us bo"
niirn impudence, we suspect t<> be a urn
latio of the dirtiest brown. Anglo Saxon
dom gets no credit at his hands. lie gives
yon a new creed, thc anieles of which
will irritate the bile of John Bull, even
through the hide of Lord John Russell,
lleai- the oracle:
"But now, America, though indisputa?
bly of English stock, has liad in these lat?
ter years her Norman invasion 'as well as
Hie mother country, though 'Paddy Mc?
Guire' and 'Biddy O'Flanagan' are not
as high-sounding names exactly as 'Do
Lacy,' 'Percy' and 'Dc Arere.' And if the
English owe any of their excellence in art
and literature to thc infusion and mixture
bf the blue t\'tiu blood with their Saxon
red-why we, after a few years of misery,
only less than that wln -h England sullVrcd
by lier Norman 'help,' s mil show Howers
enough on our gnarled and crabbed stock.
The Norman-Celtio infusion has no doubt
civilizedftrefined and spiritual ize Jmngiaud.
The Iris]; Celtic will also, wh :n ?<... fairly
intermingled with us, add. in valuable,
qualities, lt will give us much tJrat we
i,mst have before we can |\roduce the best
fruit. Jfb race in good alone. God meant
them to bo combined, and He knows best
lune, ia His own i^ood time, to crush all
these grapes id lifo in his royal cup to
make a wino moot for thc lips of tho Lord
of Life to drink.
"i3ut, so fur, we are only shown I" be
the equals of England in her advantages.
We brought from her thc stock, already
somewhat mingled, ofSaxon and Norman.
Wc have seen that, in our dav, it h i- suf?
fered a great infusion; but t bo future
holds a more noble mixture still. Celtic,
this, ns the Ii bb i-, but grander by nature,
moro heroic, n. ire intellectual even, yet,
higher than this, more spiritual, move re?
ligions. I moan the negro race. .A race,
in tho first place, <d" high qualities-faith?
ful, earnest, deeply believing in God.
Then, tried as by tire In thc seven limes
heated furnace of slavery, suffering nunn
a.ined wrongs, with an unimagined pa?
tience, nud through the fierce-it trial that
ever human beings endured, without
weakness, without cowardice, without
l'ait..vin-:-holding fast to God's hand and
biding his time.
**This rave basin it the seeds of a s weet
.-ind riclrand generous culture. It shall
he mixed with curs-is being mixed, hi
deed; an i in the future, we sha!! sc i
iruil nf art, of literature, of social lift?, tin
product of this groat engrafting, such ni
lias not yet been seen in the World, lt i
paltry in us to hold-our eyes so close li
thc present, as if in the lap of God then
were not years of purer gold, more jewel
rich, moro crystal-clear, to delight th
eves, to ehe. ?' tho lu-arts, to inspire til
advancing souls of mvn. The race thu
sball people this splendid continent is nt
yet boru, it is in the womb nf tune, th
eyes of this generation, nor the next,sha
not know it, but they may prepare th
way for it. and bc-iiovo in ita coming."
Here is philosophy and prophecyenoug
to stultify thc Angel Gabri d. Tho rac.
ave to become of one blood. Theresita
be a delightful state of fusion. Tho ii
ventiot: of a New Orleans bar room coir
bar '.ly bring together caore opposites in
composite designed f<>r a summer bev
rage. We are all of one blood, orv
must become so. Very good. Trees a
all of one sac; but- that does not preVo
the oak, the hickory, thc beech, the pah
the maple, from asserting their scvei
iooividualtii -5 to thc crack ot' doon-! ll
bii ls rarely improve either race concern
in the amalgam. So far, experience at
.h? Cooke prophecy are nt variance, iii
aa our lilli i ud ?catea,;th? devil gout's
Cooke's. Mormonism teaches very- indul?
gent doctrines, and accords' to the true
believer a very large margin of privilege.
M?6?.egual??>n extends these, privileges. By
this eade, you may got only have twenty
five wives, but you will imp: ove the stock
by taking them each of a dill'erent color,
shade, hue, complexion. Black and white*
bv thc way, aro not colors, but the grounds
for color?. And, in our delicate mincings j
of speech in this connection, we arc de?
stroying lang'.inge. Bnt this does not |
trouble Coolee. lie feels safe in his pro- j
pliecy where he fails in his philosophy. |
Yet thc monkey will fi ?ul followers. He j
wiil, no doubt., lead a party for a season.
Ku will delight ibo brethren; he will as- J
tonis'.i the sistcren? he will take up collec?
tions in money, by which to achieve thc
impossible; and hi? cloven hoof will only
become perceptible after he has sufficient?
ly lilied claw and maw. And, alter him, !
thrrc will come another and another, and j
all shall be cooks provided by the devil. I
A chronic fear of French aggression j
prevails among mon of n\l parties in l>el- j
gium. 'J'lie recent words of M. Von Bis- |
marck abouti "France seeking compensation j
for an extended. Prussian frontier in an?
other direction than that of Germany, are |
eons!rued to imply some species ol' under?
standing between the Goveriinie'its ot"
Paris and Berlin. Ten years ago, the
Catholic party in ihe Belgian Chambers
were more than half disposed lo palter

to press the Government factiously, being

In a short time the 1*27th New

of them have expressed a desire to
settle in mir midst. We hope this
desire will meet with proper encour?

owners. They are a hod}' of intelli?
gent, educated young men, trained to
habits of industry and economy. Their
gentlemanly hearing ?nd conduct have
earned tho respect and good will ot
all. As residenfs they would readily
assimilate with the citizens, and be?
come a valuable acquisition to society
and the State generally. For every
