GREAT SPKECH OF A CO LOR Kl)
MKMPIIIAN. .. !
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

a few days, where I can purchase a small
bit of land, and no longer be compelled
to encounter the disgraceful tendencies
