FRIDAY, JAN. 30.1880 IMF NEGRO 13 NOT A DE SCENDANT OF NOAH A brilliant Frenchman, writirfg of the ancient people of the east, comes to the above melancholy conclusion. The white, red and yellow races can claim th a oh or able distinction, but the nogro is derived from no one of the three sons of Noah, Down south during the days when the shackles clanked in harmony with the crack of the whip and the deep-mouthed bay ing bf the bloodhounds, pro-slavery divines searched the liible for evi dence to sustain the hell-born insti tution. and agreed, &i'nce HaV was cursed, it was thefr’Christian duty to help execute the curse. If the negro’s'brigin had btfen dem onstrated dthdr than froih tiam, they would enslaved him for being an outsider in history. The divines were able to give a Biblical twist to any reason fdr their “inhumanity lb taan.” The traditions, myths anft histories of the deluge ai-e more universal than ‘liny others in ebfin Action with primi tive humanity, The French writer ‘finds most similar the traditidfis Of the Uhaldekhs ferid’t hobble accobnt. The Chaldeab’s Account is 'substan tiated by the discovery of the tablets by Smith at Nineveh. ’Each tradition locates the iflood in the valley of the Euphrates and Tigris rivers. Mis to Mexico, Oceanico and 'tlte sea Mantis found that the tradi tion of the deluge had preceded them. At I the yellow and red races have feu account And the account is univer sal, except among the black braiidh of the human race. The white, reel and yellow races fei'c precisely the ones named fes the descendants of Noah, a*i£ are (he one's whose ac counts agPeb in mdny particulars. The hood is ribt a myth, and, whether unfvershl or Idcal/stattfls a historical fitct, fend ha's lett its impress upon the Aryah, Semitic and Cushite civ ilization. Yet the A frican has no such tradition. This either leaves the negro out of the deluge, or, if he was ot the same stbek, created In Asia, his ancestor’s rhhst have sepa rated frofih the main stem anti gone otT befdre tile flood occurred. He then mfest *be, we inteY, fen independ bn’t creation Probably an “indepen dent grdwt*h from an African proto plasm, as *&ev. uofeeph Cook would fehy. Thobfeh bot our fault, we have mime a “fuss” wherever we have £one, and it is demoralizing to have the negro, at this late d*y, to come in, and all the scientists ckn tell how he came and where he came from. If he did not come of Noah and was not in the ark, he upsets the story of the flood. If a universal flood occurred aftd he irks not destroyed, he then must be set apart for some higher destiny. Up to the present, he has been the slave of everybody, the standing savage, through kll time, of one continent, a race without a his tory. Perhaps when our day comes (as it has come to other races), vre may be prottd of our distinct and isolated position, uncomplicated with the blunders and crimes of the haughty and unsympathizing Cau casian—'-(Our Age.

'Senator Voorhees was mortified and .chagrined on the flour of the senate, Thursday, when the Republi cans drew on him his record as an original exodus man. *ft appears that Senator Voorhees and other Democrats made a report to the House of Representatives ii?iB7O, on the Kuklux’Vuestions, in which they recduhnended an exodus as the only salvation for the Negro. Exodus or extinction, said they, h the only thing left for l*he 'Negro in the future Rut now, because the 'Negro see'tns to prefer exodus to extinction, Sena tor Voorhees and his JJemdcratic asrociatesare terribly enraDgcd, and want Ccngrees to put a slop to the exodus, in order, we suppose that the progress of extinction so vigorously carried on by Southern Democrats, may not be interfered with. It is somewhat remarkable that Senator Voorhees and the colored peopleware in such perfect accord as ib the dilemma presented. The only chit hp of disagreement is the exasper ating fact that the colored people pre fer th*' exodus to the (Extinction horn Don't craw-fish Senator ; you started the exodus boom, arid it Is 100 latc to bton it.—lndianapolis Leader. WHAT IS FORTHY? “What is poetry?’' is a conundrum we find in an esteethed contempo rary. When a voting lady receives a letter from her lover, and finds at the omega of it those soul-inspirihg tines— ‘‘The rhse l is red, the violet’s blue. No knife can etc our lovfc ih two,” she is willing to ma\e oath Yhat sweeter poetry was never written. The little girl of six summers, with hea'venlv blue ey'os, a laughing difh ple, fluhy golden hair pink cheeks and pink sash, is a sweet poem—and ten years hence sothe young man will want to ihbti’e and form a coup let. *The yc’.’bw dog going “kiting’’ fcbwh the street with a tinware at tachment, is a poem—doggerel order. l 4 he sad-eyed fisherman, who stanli 'long the river's edge hours without getting a bite, is a verse averse to standing tfieHe any longer : so epics up his lines, which have not fallen in pleksA'nt ‘placet, and con cludes to ron-deau-vo home. And the ft ft 'df tender grass, that appears after the shows of winter have de parted, in a spring poem—but hot the kind the editor “sits upon.” The man in the white pants at the pic does that- And now if you know what poetry is, we give it rijS.— [Norristown lie raid.
