The following remarks are reported for the ' Public Lidoer, from an faddresp recently delivered by' a 'common' sense, (colored) philosopher, in, the suburbs of Memphis : . . i -ia ..: .. .1 ' "But," said the speaker, in eonclnsioii,,1 My colored friends, while responding to a call of my' fellow-draymen . tiB" others, on this picnic occasion-, allowm4,i in my place, to allude to our present, surrounding's.' ' Lei ' us1 riifc1 forget tl oldeu times, when we wre.iuulej, rj- couraged and honored, as our good or' bad characters deserved; let us not im agine the world, or the course of nature, has changed in a day. ' I Yespect thow who, in the honesty of their hearts, mean i,a wull Kilt tirafap thn ddb, wnni ant rA liability of our old friends. "Some woiLl make us believe, it we had been properly washed from our birth, we would huve been as while " as bronzed statues white washed with, olialk, and the, there would have been an end to' African. aro mas, noses nnd lips, which Nature has devised for our race. I Ttyere arf (Jm of us so ignorant as to bejieve this. I came here when Memphis was a babe ;. I have been treated as 1 deserved, and, though I may not have grown as rich as my old master, I was probably the better known of the two, and my credit, as far as I ever asked, was equally as good as bisv 1 know, and everybody in Memphis 'who is familiar with our history as dray men, knows, that the word of at least two thirds of ns was as good as our owners' bond. When did one of us, when con sidered worthy, ever want, if our wait was known ? I do not object to freedom, where freedom is honored by its posses sors, nor have I any business with those things with which I see others meddling, to so little prefit; yet, nllow me to say in reference to those who would make CI out as good as the whiles, that if it is so I am sure the cause is not in the mere color of the skin. I hope my .wjike friends standing around, honoring' me with their attention, will, look . to the meaning, and not the form of ray expres sion, when I say I know 1 have alwuys had better common sense, a higher ap preciation of my own character, find that comprehensive view of my own sur roundings than to believe that a psalm singing set of imported hypocrites .p would register themselves as far ahead of nature as the lOtb bbapter is ahead of Uncle Tom's Cabin, in nontext and phi losophic discretion. In fuel, I believe we, who are honest, industrious, and at tentive in the observance of the rights of others, re better off than the white skin rascality of the universe, particu larly that which would and does endea vor, through specious pretexts, to dsooy us away from our natural friends and affiliations. I I do aot believe that fanaticism I of any sort, though quoted at par, wtlljbe able, when its issue .is called in, .to pay one per cent on an original skull, stolen from the catecomb of a republic pf. heart less wooden-headed fools. . '. . , j If nature has turned out our face ut a half-finished job, I had much rather trust to her own time for its completion ttrnn risk fanaticism with uur future bupBs'ol' elevating our honor, when shr ban 1 .-ta so unmindful ot hers. Those, iti'iict, can but be considered meddlers whont-' tend to everybody's business save tl'ir own. There are those among as who seem to wish as to set out to Leaven with . . ... tbem. I suspect their object is, if possi ble, to steal eur passport by the way, and crawling through some sewer into heaven ander our names, claim oar seat there tin der their own plea' of heavenly 'rrrap' sion for the down trodden African, fhe simple-minded aerf of their ideal crea tion. Fanatical rant has not advanced os peg tine Mathuslah was a he be bjrn tab. Retired from draying, I Ex pect to leave my old home, for Ohioj in a few days, where I can purchase a small bit of land, and no longer be compelled to encounter the disgraceful tendencies that now seem aa if dragging ns dowsj to thf . eontagioas grave of infamy. And shame. This may seem paradoxical, yet, like you, I have, for my course, reasons of say own. I find the influx of capital to this rained country considers nre a ebir iUeaa tool. I have always been consid ered honest t immediate trust, but Sim considered so no more; and should tifces and C'rca mstancet chfinge, I. and if kiot, J, my children will return hen the Ras cality of accretion, leveled Agntnst a, has raa it infamrras course.
