Unity of the Hnman tace Dis
proved by the Bible.
HY I.::. SAMIEL A. (CARTWR!IIGr.
[From DeBow's Review.l
Etlolo,,l,ay is the cla.sifi,'ati, In of
races on the ciharacteristic difll'rences.
whic'h atistitnguish tha:,n. Tht:l scitief'c
prvces thatt the legra) differed as niuch
fraom the white inani three thousatnd
yealrs ago as ihe does nfow, and wouldl
of itschi be sulfficient to settle the ques
tion, if so many pe.',,Ile, including the
moist .of the dlivinas in Europe and Ame
rica, mwere ot anxiously looking outd
evct'y day f,,r the negro, to lec,,nie
white. Th(- question is pressing hoine
upoan its too) heavily to wait another
three thousanld years to prove whether
fthe- characteristic diftjtrences between
the two races Ie Ipernmalnent or not, as
thle time allready past is not regarded
by Prichard and others as sufficient.
Let us, therefore, abandon the slow,
uncertain and tolrtuuis paths of proud
•crice:a, and seek to know what (;od
has revealeld ion the sulject. if we take
the Hfl.brew Bible for a guide, and faith
fully interpret it, there can be but one
(apinion ,ni thie question. That book
positively affirmrs that there were, at
least, two races of intellectual crea
tures with immortal sniuls, created at
different times. Thus, in the 24th verse
,,f the 1st chapter of (Genesis. "Thl'le
Lord sasid, Let the earth bIring forth in
tallrrtanl creaturrs rirth immortal souls after
their kind ; cattle, and creepinhg thing, a
and beast of the earth after his kind,
and it was so" In oar English version, i
instead o,f "intrllc'dual creatures withl i
mortal souls." we have only the words,
"liring creturer," as representing the
Hebrew words, napesk chaiw.4. The !
last word means "living creature." and
the word asophesA, which invests cdaiyak,
ar living creature, with intellectuality
and imntiortrlity, is not translated at all,
either in the lluay Bible orthat of
King James. But there it stands more
durable than brass or granite, inviting
us to look at the negro and the Indian,
and then to look at that, and we will
understand it. Neither the Catholic nor
Protestant transistors of the Bible seem
to have had the negroes in their mind's
eye when they were hooking at the
words sophesA iaidyak, or if they had,
they took for granted that they were
white men whose skins a tropical sun
had blacked, and hence omitted totrans
late the words which embraced them.
Mississippi and Louisiana are half full
of negroes, and so is the Hel,rew Bible,
but ,ur English version has not got a
negro in it.
The translators surely thought that
there must be solne mistake in regard to
the intelcctuality and immortality of any
earthly beings. created before Adam,
and hence omnitted to express the idea
of intellectuality and immortality, which
the original attached to snch beings.
After the inferior races, or inferior sap
shA chiaiyii were created, God said,
"Let us make Adam (or a superir race
of ~owpkes ckaiyai) in our own image,
and after our likeness, and let them
have dominion over all things on earth,"
including the negroes of course. Chap
ter 2. verse 7, says that Adam "became
a liring soedl." became a sapAesk chaipk.
We understand by liring soal a creature
with intelligence and imrmortal mind.
If the same words had been translated
the same way in the 24th verse of the
Ist chapter, we would have recognized
two creations of intellectual and im
mortal beings at different times. But
these words being merely rendered
liring crvators, in the 24th verse, con
founded the inferior upAes d.ipl
with the brutes mentioned in the same
Fifty years ago Dr. Adam Clarke, the
learned commentator of the Bible, from
deep reading in the Hebrew, Arabic
and Coptic lanages, was forced to
the conclusion that the creature which
beguiled Eve was an animal formed
like man, walked erect, and had the
gift of speech and reasona. He believ
ed it was an orang-outa and not a
serpent. If he ad lived in Louisiana,
instead of England, he would have r
cognised the sr gvregde, Eve was a
new comer, and had evidently been
questioning, oat of curiosity, the gar
dener about the tree with the forbidden
Ifruit. The ophidiaa Bimana begins his
reply to her questionm with an exclama
tionishnent, reudered ay?' in our ve::
sion, equivalent to "is it possible"
Can it be that Elohim has said you are
not to cat of every tr'-e in the gatden '
Ye sall1 not die, but in the day you cat
there you will be as gods, knowin~
good and evil.
We are told, in the 19th verse of the
second chapter, that all the creatur'.
w,,re bro ught before Adam t' rc,',,ve
names, and that what he called ever I
I ;rig c:reature that was the lnang
thereof. What those names wr:', 1't
pears afterward. Tho, :.munis he g-ave,

ncdlsing within the name a hist o v et,
the thing named, occurs in the 1st verse
of the 3d chapter of Genesis It is
.'cA'msh. That is the name of the cre: -
tore which beguiled Eve. The history
of the creature is enclosed in the namne
hnder cover of a bundle of ideas, su in
congruous and disconnected as w),t to.
be understood until, in the revolution;
,,f ages, sufficient knowledge of the
thing named had been acquired by ex
perience to furnish the key to unl ock
the book. We see around it the ser
pent-the charmed-the enchanted
watching closely-prying inito designs
-rmuttering and babbling without n-a
artful -fetters--chains-and a verb
formed from the name, which signifies
to be or to become back. Any go(~l
overseer would recognize the :negro's
peculiarities in the definition of Na
hash, and the verbs connected with it,
if read from a Hebrew lexicon.
But you may ask, is not the first part
of Genesis a narration of events that
could not possibly have been witnessed
by any human being, and of what value
can it be in the search of Truth ? It
would be of no more value than Sinbad
tbhe Sailor, if the narration did not
prove itself by containing within itself
the truth sought for. es are in search
of the truth about negroes, whether
they belong to the Adamic race or not
The Bible tells certain, facts about
negroes, which none but the best in
formed planteers and oversers know
at the present day. The most learned
divines are ignorant of them, not be
cause they cannot read Hebrew, but
because they cannot read Hebrew re
writ in the negro. Planters and over
seers read it in the negroes, but don't
know that it is llebrew, and that their
evidence, if they could read Hebrew,
would prove, in any court of justie., to
the satisfaction of any jury, that the
writer of Genesis knew more about ne
groes than they did. A star in the
East has lately appeared, throwing
much light on the first chapter of Gene
sis, by making plain to all observers a
lot of inferior races, pure terriger, in
cluding giants, created before Adam.
C. Blanchard Thompson, of New Eng
land, a Hebrew scholar of the first-class,
after immigrating to Missouri, made
the discovery, that if the 24th verse
of the Ist chapter were literally and
fully translated, it would gave the
necessity of torturing Scripture and
scientific truth to procure a white father
and mother for the Missouri negroes
and the Missouri Indians. But ThQmp
son, with all his learning, is far behind
the pensman of the book of Genesis in
his knowledge of that character. He
did not know that the most stupid negro
is not only more subtle than any beast.
of the field, but has much more subtlety
in many matters than the wisest white
men generally have. He will find some
overseers in Louisiana and Mississippi
who are aware of the fact. For in
stance, a negro can read an overseer
much better than his master can, and
can instinctively tell whether he is a
man of courage, or can be imposed on
not, or whether he can see through a ne

The writer of Genesis knew it, and ex
pressed the fact in that bundle of iddas,
or epitomised history of the negro char
acter, shut up in the name he gave to
the creature, which Ire met with in the
garden of Paradise. The year before
