Statesman are making it the basis of their remarks, Edi torials being written upon it, and eminent divines are discussing it, all because an accidental presi dent is trying to force social and political equality between the races upon an unwilling people. Abraham Lincoln, the great apostle of Republicanism, in a speech delivered in Charleston, III., on the 18th of September, 1858, said as follows: F. son, of Gen. office "I will say that 1 am not nor over have been in favor of bring ing about in any way the social and political equality of thewhite and black races; that I am not nor ever have been in favor of raak ing voters or jurors os negroes. W. nor of qualifying them to hold office nor to intermarry with white J Nall, people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which will ever for bid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do re main together, there must be the position of superior and inferior; and I, as much as any other man, am in favor of having the superi or position assigned to the white G. W. noti, »» race. Thomas Jefferson, the great .apostle of Democracy, said: I am certain that the negroes wi 11 he free, and I am equally certain that they can never live on the you you li same soil on terms of political equality with the whites." Oliver Wendell Holmes says: ! "No abstract principle of be nevolence can reserve the great family instinct that settles the question for us.

But meanwhile is this affecting the good negro of the south? The answer is found in the cheery songs of the thousands of negro — workingmen in the fields, whose happy lives are undisturbed by the thoughts of the morrow, and who pay no attention to the idle vaporings of the skunk-seen ted Washington Ethiopian who is crying for blood, or the fanatical Parkhurst who is denouncing the Anglo Saxons of the south as ty — rants. Happy in the thought that the southern while man is his friend, and secure in the knowledge that so long as he properly conducts himself he will he accorded fair treatment, he has no cause for worry.
