Col. Prince, a White Member of Parlia
ment, proposes a Colored Botany Bay
The object to go to the Manitoulin
Islands Indignation Meeting Col.
j mice s liepty, denou
Icnouncing his Color-
nt Jfrelhrcn.
At an adjourned meeting of the col
ored citizens of Toronto, called to ex
press a sense of their indignation at the
speech of Col. Prince, delivered in the
Legislative Council on the Oth inst., the
following preamble and resolutions, as
reported by the Committee through their
chairman, Dr. II. T. Augusta, wore read,
received, and, after speeches from sev
eral gentlemen unanimously adopted :
Whereas. It has pleased Col. Prince.
n member of the Legislative Council ol
this province, in moving an address to
the Governor (Jeneral (to restore to the
commission of the peace Alessrs. Wilk
inson and Woodbridgc, who were dis
missed from the same for conuiving at
the rendition of Archy Linton, a color
ed man, to the authorities of the United
State) to use the following language
relative to the colored citizens of the
province :
That, "they arc extremely demoral
ized, repaying with ingratitude, witli
pilfering theft, and other vices and
crimes, the kindness they have received
at our hands."' '-In his opinion, they
should be kept separate, and not allow
ed to taint the atmosphere and corrupt
white society, and he advised that a co
lony of them should be founded in the
Manitoulin Islands, or some other
place." Lan;uare which for vitupera-
atian and prejudice against the colored
man can only be equalled by the most
ignorant of mankind.
And whereas, the said Colonel Prince
is the last man in this province to speak
so disparagingly of the colored people,
inasmuch as, during their rebellion ol'
1838. when he was in command of the
troops in the western part of this prov
ince; he walked arm in arm with color
ed men, and when his life was in dan
ger (as he very justly did) executed
without judge or jury the rebels or bor
der ruffians whom he fell in with or cap
tured, it was colored men who guarded
his person and household, not one of
whom was ever a rebel or a traitor.
And whereas, the said Colonel Prince
owes his election, the distinguished po
sition which he now holds, to the votes
of colored men; and much of his earth
ly gains has accumulated" from a lucra
tive practice among his colored clients ;
And whereas, it has pleased Almigh
ty God to enlighten the understanding
of British statesmen to give that boon
to the colored man. which few other
countries have given, namely: to be
free as soon as his foot touches British
soil, and ultimately enjoy all the rights
and privileges of a citizen. Therefore
it ill becomes a petty colonist counsel
lor, at this progress of enlightmcnt, to
advise the Governor to colonize her cit
izens on a barren island of sand in Lake
Huron. They who have fought, bled
and died to keep this beautiful country
from the grasp of the iniquitous slave
holding and despotic republic adjoining
us, to starve them out, which is only in
keeping with the black-hearted scheme
of the American Colonization Society,
which receives it impulses from the
blood-stained gold of the South. And
for ought we know "southern gold" is
doing its work of corruption and bribe
ry with the men of this province in high
places, to carry on this new scheme of
colonization, degradation and kidnap
ping, to deter colored men from emi
grating to this province. Therefore,
1st. Bcsolvcd, That the charges made
by Col. Prince, the self-styled "model
of old English gentlemen" against the
general character of the blacks, (as re
ported in the Daily Colonist, of the 10th
inst.) are treacherous and false in the
extreme, and that the disgusting and
despotic language used in making those
charges whether induced by bribes of
southern gold or bad excited spirit, did
so "taint the atmosphere" of Legisla
tive Council as to cause several ladies to
withdraw from the Council Chamber.
2d. Resolved, That we the colored ci
tizens of the city of Toronto, do cast
back into the teeth of Col. Prince the
foul imputations contained in his speech,
a? a base slander of our character as ci
tizens, calculated to foster prejudices
agaiust us and degrade us.
3d. Resolved, That we will resist by
every means in our power, any invasion
of our rights as citizens; and will hold
up to public scorn and contempt all
such panders to American prejudices
against color.
4th. Resolved. That we recommend
to the constituents of Col. Prince, that!
tlmv ronrtosr. him to rnsio-n Kant in
the Legislative Council immediately, as!
being morally unlit to represent them,
and as exhibiting a pusillanimousncss
toward the colored people, without a pa-
rallel in the legislative proceedings of
this province, not excepting thc resolu-
tions of the notorious Larwill.
5th. Resolved, That it is the opinion
of this meetin-r that the colored people
throughout this province should unite
in the expression of a most decided de
testation of both Prince and Larwill,
who have shown themselves as mote
despotic demagogues, and among the
bitterest enemies of the colored man.
and should set the seal of condemnation
upon all disposed so to act.
ith. Kesolved. J hat we return our
heartfelt thanks to his Excellency the'
General, and his constitution-!
a! advisers, for the promptness with
which they acted in defending our
rights by dismissing Messrs. Wilkinson
and Woodbridgc, which will, no doubt,
deter others from doing likewise. And
they will ever hold a permanent place
in our memory.
7th. Resolved. That we will ever hold
dear the flag which gives us protection
life, liberty and property: and
tled"0 ourselves to her Most (Jraciou
Queen Victoria, to be ever ready, at a
moment's warning, to defend the coun
try of our adoption, at all hazards.
8th. Resolved, That we tender our
sincere thanks to Mr. Grrat. for the
prompt action he took in laying before
His Excellency the Governor the case
of the man Lanton.
Oth. Resolved, That a copy of this
preamble and resolutions be forwarded
to Her Majesty Queen Victoria, 11 is
Excellency the Governor (Jeneral and
the members of the Executive Council
of this Province.
It was then moved and seconded that
the proceedings of this meeting be pub
lished in the Colonist, Provincial Free
man, Frederick Douglas' paper, and the
Globe, which was amended by striking
out the Globe. Carried.
Moved and seconded, That, whereas
this meeting is of the opinion that the
colored people of the province are un
der continued and renewed obligations
to the proprietors of the Toronto Colo
nist, for the decided, out-spoken and
disinterested course pursued by their
paper from time to time, in favor of our
sufferings. Therefore, resolved, that
this meeting do recsmmend that press
and paper as worthy of the confidence
and patronage of colored people; and
therefore do earnestly urge that they
patronize them as much as possible.

To the Editor of the Colonist:
Dear Sir : Your valuable paper of
yesterday has afforded mo a rich treat
and not a little fun, in the report of an
indignation meeting of the "colored ci
tisens" of Toronto, held for the purpose
of censuring me. Perhaps I ought not
to notice their proceedings perhaps it
would be more becoming in me to allow
them to pass at once into the oblivion
which awaits them, but as it is the fash
ion in this country not iinfrequeiitl' to
assume that to be true which appears in
print against an individual, unless he
flatly denies the accusation, I shall, at
least for once, condescend to notice
these absurd proceedings. They deal
in generalities, and so shall I.
Of the colored citizens of Torcnto I
know little or nothing; no doubt, some
are respectable enough in their way and
performing inferior duties belonging to
their station tolerably well. Here, they
are kept in order in their proper place
but their "proceedings'" are evidence
of their natural conceit, their vanitv,
and their ignorance; and in them the
cloven foot appears, and evinces what
they would do if they could. I believe
that in this city, as in some others of
our province, that they are looked upon
as necessary evils, and only submitted
to because white servants are so scarce.
But I now deal with these fellows as
a body, and I pronounce them to be as
such, the greatest curse ever inflicted
upon the two magnificent western coun
tries which I have the honor to repre
sent in the Legislative Council of this
Province, and few men have had the ex
perience of them that I have.
Among the many estimable qualities
they possess, a systematic habit of lying
is not the least prominent; and the
"colored citizens'' aforesaid, seem to
partake of that quality in an eminent
degree, because in their famous Resolu
tions they roundly assert that during
the Rebellion "I walked arm in arm
with colored men," that "I owe my
election to the votes of colored men"
and that I have "accumulated much
earthly gain," as a lawyer, among "col
ored clients." All Lies ! Lies ! Lies !
from beginning to end. I admit that
one company of blacks did belong to my
contingent battalion, but they made the
worst of soldiers, and were comparative
ly speaking, unsusceptible of drill or
discipline, aud were conspicuous for one
act only a stupid sentry shot the son
of one of our oldest colonels under a
mistaken notion that he was thereby
doing his duty. But I certainly never
did myself the honor of "walking arm
in arm'with any of the colored gentle
men of that distinguished corps. Then
as to my election. Few, very few blacks
voted for mc, I never canvassed them,
and hence I suppose they supported, as
a body, my opponent. They took com
passion upon "a monument of injured
innocence," and they sustained the mon
ument for awhile, upon the pedestal
their influence had erected. Rut the
monument fell, and the fall proved that
such influence was merely ephemeral;
and it sank into insignificant nothing
ness, as it should, and I hope ever will
do; or God help this noble land. Poor
Blackics ! Be not so bold, or no con
cjited, or so insolent, hereafter. I do
beseech you.
Then how rich I have become among
my "colored" citizens ! T assert, with
out the fear of contradiction, that I have
been the friend of our Western "dar
kies" for more than twenty years; and
amidst difficulties and troubles innumc-
l'a,jlo (for tne? are hu

ious race.) I
ind I never
m twetj pounds out of them in (hat
j long period ! 1 lie tact i- that ilie poor
1 treat tires had never the ability to pay
j lawyer s fees.
It has been my misfortune and the
; misfortune of my family to live among
) those blacks (and they have lived upon
i 0 twenty-four years. I have era-
ployed Hundreds ot them, and. with the
exception of one, named Richard Hun
ter, not one has ever done for us a weeks

my service, have fed and clothed them
year after year on their arrival from
the States, and in return have generally
found tli cm rogues and thieves, and ;i

by all the cstern white men, with
very few exceptions.
I have had scores of George Washing

you for having given me an opportuni
ty to publish my opinion of 3our race.
Call another indignation meeting, and
there make greater fools of yourselves
than you did at the last; and then -to
supper with what appetite you may."
Believe me to remain, Mr. Editor.
Yours, very faithfully,
Toronto, June, 26th 1857.
P. S I think it proper to aUude to
the case of Messrs. Wilkinson and
Woodbridgc, of wh m the Darkies' re
solutions make mention, and who were
so improperly and unjustly dismissed
from the commission of the peace.
These two magistrates did their duty
they acted upon a statute which has
never been repealed, and they were dis
missed for not having acted upon a
statute which did not touch the offence
charged Horse Stealing! However,
there is some consolation iu reflecting
that the black rascal whom they caused
to be arrested was tried and convicted of
the crime charged, and will luxuriate
for six years jet to come in the State
Prison of Ohio. It is thought (and I
believe it. too.) that the "monument"
had much to do in influencing the Exe
cutive against those worthy Magistrates.
J. P.
That the Chase administration still
have 8540,000 of the people's money
unaccounted for.
Don't Forget : That Gibson has ac
knowledged under oath that he reieivod
all the money from his predecessor !
Remember : That the present Audit
or officially reports, that he counted the
money, and found it all in the vault of
the Treasury, after Mr. Gibson was in
possession of the office.
That Salmon P. Chase, well knowing
these acts, sought to deceive the people
with a false statement, that the deficit
occurred under the former administra
tion !
That the Chase Administration
have in seventeen months, increased the
taxes ; increased the public debt of the
State ; depreciated State predit ; lost
the confidence of the financial world :
that they now stand in a treasonable
attitude of defiance to the General Gov
ernment; and to culminate their infamy
OF THE people's money, for which
they defiontly refuse to render an account
! CoscIiocIoh Democrat.
That Wm. II. Gibson has stated dis
tinctly, and published to the world, that
the defalcation was caused by John (i.
Breslin, and that not one dollar of the
public funds had been lost by hint.

weeks after leaving the Treasury, paid

which was iloposito-,1 in rottem banks.

Just look at him ! Do you see that
individual with his hat high on the
bump of self-esteem his nose turned
up at everything distinguished by a
frantic disregard of the inimacculacy of
his shirt, or the tie of his handkerchief?
Mark with what superciliousness he
views all mundane things. With what
scorn does he gaze upon youths and
grown peojde, and how contemptible
appears every thing to his High Dain
tiness that was so attractive before.

tiny, whining cherub is at homo iu em

thc baby -is as fat as butler, and weighs

that ! Six pounds and a quarter, and a

decipher a written notice, although
written tolerably plain, could not be

read it for them, which we of course did.

to his comrade and remarked, in a very
impressive tone: ': Well, be jabers. L'll

that he won't get his advertisement

he'd chate me." They all acquiesced iu
