old colored woman
was fiunnintr her-

lame in ono foot, came up to the front
gate and rested himself on hi9 sound

"How you do, Aun' Dinah?"'

tho sweat off his brow with one fin

It is interesting to observe how
shrewd and cautious the Southern
rebels are. They have been out of
power so long that they are willing
7 i . 1 l r
to raaKe almost any Kina oi coneey-
sion to get tho machinery of the Gov-
ernment into their hands. They tell
tho Neirroes that if thev will irive
them their support, thev will pay
w . l
every cent lost bythem in the Freed
men's Savings ßank they will in
crease their privileges, and will in tho
end do better by them than tho Re
publicans are able to do. Wonder
ful! wonderful!! wonderful!!! "Ubi
nam gentium sumus," (where in tho
world are we!) Every intelligent
colored man knows that this is false;
not a shadow of truth in it. Why
don't they begin now? Why delay?

notice the difference. A white man
may go into a car that they call ex
clusively a negro car, and sit down
while there: it a negro attempts to
return the compliment his head or
back pays the penalty. Observe
again a feature of Southern justice.

that article by saying: "Whether

It was said last week in this column that
the party traces were not holding the col
ored man as securely as "it used to was."
There is blood on the moon. And the Re
publicans who vainly imagine that the "nig
ger,' or as a leading Republican calls the
colored man, the "darkey" will vote the
ticket anyway so no effect should bo made
to keep nis voie iniaci. ju.cn are in a great
measure like sheep; as the bellwether jumps so
does the drove. The leading colored men
have declared among themselves that they
intend to vote against jne or two men on
the county ticket.
One of the panics is the nominee for Lor-
oner, Hermeling. i ot uecause mis man nas

White men of the par.y vote as they choose,

nominee for .Mayor to be beaten by their
foolishness in insisting that they would vote
for whom they please, irrespective of party
ties. Tho colored man is imitative. He
now intends, from the lesson received, to
practice the device of "scratching." Four
years ago tho Young Men's Republican
Club had a Hebrew for President and an
Anglo-African for Secretary, but tho pim
pled aristocrat couldn't stand that combin
ation. This year the Y. M. R. C. has no
negro officers and will not have.
The different ward clubs used to have col
ored Vice-Presidents and Secretaries; but
now no more alas are negro faces seen in
high positions. In the County Central
Committee the negro is merely a figure

"conflabs." It is too true. The Republican

reminds me ot a story I've read somewhere.
In a certain canal town was a bad man who
was captain of a canal boat; his name was
Bill. Bill would he, steal, get drunk, play
five up," "shoot craps" and do every thing
else bad. His boat trot aground; her low
was stuck high and dry but the stern was
floatine: in de;n water. Bill cursed, but the
boat didn't move. So he reformed and told
all the good people of the town that he had
"got religion," and to ceiebr Ue the event
proposed to have a prayer Meeting on his
boat. All tho good people .came. The

ed like Hydra, and footed like a centipede.
It gorged prayer, hymns, exhortations and
sermons. W hen. in tho morning, tne preach
er did all ho could for it, it crawled hack in
tho afternoon with its maw just as empty,
its feverish eye just as expectant, its mouth
just as wide open for more. It swallowed
more prayer, more hymns, more sermons. It
crawled back in tho evening to glut, or try
to glut, its horrid greed. Sermons, sermons,
sermons! They were swallowed whole,
without mastication or digestion. With our
knowledge of the human mind, we are ccr-
tain that no more than one good sermon can
be digested by a congregation in a day; and
that everv added word coes to the elut of
intellect and feeling, and confusion of i
Fusion. It is merely intellectual gormi
dizing, and no activity, no rest or reflection,
the people sit upright and hear tho words
but they make no impression upon the heart
or mind: for no time was no time given for
reflection. We should like to know what
tho Master thinks about this.
Every sermon that a man hears after his
first strong impression, and his first hungry
reception is a disturbine, distracting and de
pressing force. A delight in endless- preacn-

ed for bringing before the people the evils
of excursions. The Indiana Conference has
distinguished itself by putting a veto upon
Sunday excursions and camp meetings. Res
olutions of thanks were passed, to the people
of hvansville for their hospitality, to the
railroads, to Rev. Lewis and the various
clerks. During the day anxiety the most
marked was depicted in the faces of the min
isters: for the Bishop would at night read
tho appointments. All wore anxious to
know where they w?uld be placed next year:
No doubt their hearts beat strongly as, the

was the opinion of Bishop Shorter that this
was the best session ever held of the Indiana
Conference. . We are certain that this Con
