The routine business was then taken heard, of a oommittee appointed to draft a suitable address to the colored people of Delaware, and asked permission to read the report, whioh laut ah called to ol to a of to preside Its up, and reports of oommittees Mr. Andeisou, granted. The addresB is designed to arouBe the colored people throughout the State and awaken a lively interest in them. Fol lowing iB the full text of " the oolored voters of Delaware." of address to the colored voters of the State of i common with the colored voters a part of Since of the United StateH generally, the body politic, and have certain rights (not as a consequence of alleged justice to ourselveH, as a grateful legacy to our posterity, bound to protest against tho existing state of things, OBpecially as they appear iu tho politics of Delaware. We know that this continually ringing tho changes on "Oar Bights'' may sound ceedingly monotonous and disagreeable to alpo know that if wo supinely permit events to shape themselves iu the future privileges) oitizouBhip, therefore, , tut they have i "rights" will bo tho past, those of a dead letter than Every school boy knows that without lution there would have States, aud agitation we : United know that without constant hope to accomplish nothing. Wo, thoroforo, submit the following proposi tions for the cousideratiou of tho colored voters of Delaware, feeling sure that if thoy carefully pouderod they will boar their legitimate fruit : First—That since tho colorod voters form about one sixth of the voting population tho State, thoy feci the time has come when they will no longer submit to bo relegated to tho rear ranks of tho Republican party, denied a voice iu its councils aud made to pick np tho crumbs that fall from tho table through tho machinations of the machine politicians aud domagogio whippers-iu who temporarily ic Of hold the reins. ; Second—That, in "knowing our rights and dariug to maintain thorn," we shall no doubt receive severe strictures from the disinter ested (heaven save tho mark !) political friends with whom w'e havo boon heretofore identified; but lot their animadversions bo never so caustic, thoy cannot mako us forgot that interesting page of natural history which tolls us how tho jackal chases tho lion's quarry, and having caught it, waits until his majesty comes up aud eats his share, whioh is very often all, ami the other animal may eat what is left, which is vory often Tho inference is obvious. Third-That if, as is allogod, tho colored voters owe a debt of gratitude to the Repub lican party, that debt has been repaid with iuterest iu the blind devotion anil unques tioning obedience which the negrooH thoy wero enfranchised ; "charity begins at homo," it be hooves colorod men to give their votes aud their inlluonce whorever it will bo of tho most immediate benefit to themselves. Tho charge uf "standing on tho block for the highest bidder" is anticipated by assuring white friends that we have learned from them to demand recognition in proportion to rendered. Fourth—That wherever tho Republican party is in power through the help of tho colored voters, thoy (the colorod voters) should be accorded e«pial rights aud protec tion in common with tho party, ami should share its triumphs as well as its disasters ; ami any failure to do this is. in effect, a notice served on colored thomsolvoH. Now gentlemen, wo colorod you this message havo the interests of much at heart as you have, aud in finitely more than anyone of another have ; aud yet, to servo their own purp thoy w ill openly pat your brawuy shoulders aud Hocretly bet their money on your blood. They will tell you that wo who send you -hoads," "bolters," d i; of a to "go" for who sond in this addresH "kickers," «tc , and we will tell them phatically that wo will "bolt" aud "kick" long aH they will give us a serpent when ask for fish, aud give us a stone when we ask for bread. It is time thinking colored had ceased to bo tools and 'H-paws for a Hot of "machine bosses" whoso only claim to tho fact that thoy has the not superiority rusts fairer complexiou, aud who only of stopping stones to satisfy thoir own ; i !

His statement that "perhaps there is no oommnuity in Christendom where there is more scandalonB laxity in the law of divorces than in Delaware" is abünrd. Now for the faots.

I fear "Anti-Divoroe" the cause is a prejudiced wituess. it be that he is e of the numerous legisla ons who have applied to for divorce, aud been refused ! nis that assertii oonrt olaims jurisdiction where there is merely a nominal residence of tho parties is utterly false.
