THE HENDERSON GOLD LEAF THURSDAY, JANUARY 16, 1890.
Q-Q3LJD LEAF, HENDERSON, N. C. THURSDAY,.! X. Ui, 18M). Gradj's Great Speech. f CONCLUDED FROM FIRST PAGE. the Republic united. His enfranchise ment against which I enter no pro testholds the South united and com pact. What solution, then, can we offer for the problem ? Time alone can disclose it to us. We simply re port progress, and ask your patience. If the problem 1 solved at all and I firmly believe it will, though nowhere else has been it will be solved by the people most be deeply pledged in honor to its solution. I had rather see my .people render back this question rightly solved than to see them gather all the spoils over which faction has contended since Cataline conspired and Caesar fought. Meantime we treat the negro fairly, measuring to him justice in the fulness the strong should give to the weak, and leading him in the steadfast ways of citizenship that he may no longer be the prey of the un scrupulous and the sport of the thought less. We open to him every pursuit in which he can prosper, and seek to broaden his training and capacity. We seek to hold his confidence and friend ship and to pin him to the soil with ownership, that he may catcli in the fire of his own hearthstone that sense of responsibility the shiftless can never know. And we gather him into that alliance of intelligence and responsi bility, that, though it now runs close to racial lines, welcomes the responsi ble and intelligent of any race. By this course, confirmed in our judgment and justified in the progress already made, we hope to progress slowly but surely to the end. The love we feel for that race you cannot measure nor comprehend. As I attest it here, the spirit of my old black mammy,from her home up there, looks down to bless, and through the tumult of this night steals the sweet music of her crooning as thirty years ago she held me in her black a.rms and led me smiling into sleep. This scene vanishes as I speak,and I catch a visoin of an old Southern home with its lofty pillows and its white pigeons fluttering J ll 1 . 1 11 -w uown inrougn me goiaen air. i sec women with strained and anxious faces, and children alert, yet helpless. I see night come down with its dangers and its apprehensions, and in a big homely room I feel on my tired head the touch of loving hands now worn and wrinkled, but fairer tome yet than the hands of mortal woman and stronger yet to lead me than the hands of mor tal man as they lay a mother's bless ing there, while at her knees--the truest alter I have yet fouud I thank God that she is safe in her sanctuary, because her slaves, sentinel in the si lent cabin, on guard at her chamber door,put a black man's loyalty between her and danger. 1 catch another vision. The crisis of battle a soldier struck, staggering, fallen. I see a slave, strug gling through the smoke, winding his black arms about the fallen form, reck less of hurtling death bending his trusty face to catch the words that tremble on the stricken lips, so wrest ling meantime with agony that he would lay down his life in his master's stead. I see him by the weary bedside, ministering with uncomplaining pa tience, praying with all his humble heart that God will lift his master up, until death comes in mercy and in honor to still the soldier's agony and seal the soldier's life. I see him by the open grave, mute, motionless, un covered, suffering for the death of him who in life fought againt his freedom. I see him when the mound is heaped and the great drama of his life is closed turn away and with downcast eyes and uncertain step start out into new and strange fields, faltcring,struggling, but moving on, until his shambling figure it lost in the the light of this better and brighter day. And from the grave comes a voice saying, Follow him! Put your arms about him in his need, even as he put his arm about me. Ee his friend as he was mine." And out into this new world strange to me as to him, dazzling, bewildering both--I follow ! And may God forget my peoplewhen they forget these ! Whatever the future may hold for them whether they plod along in the servitude from which they have never been lifted since the Cyrenian was laid hold upon by the Roman soldiers,and made to bear the cross of the fainting Christ whether they find homes again in Africa,and thus hasten the prophecv ' of the psalmist, who said : And sud denly Ethiopia shall hold out her hands to God" whether forever dis- locaiea ana separate, tney remain a weak people beset by the stronger.and exist as the Turk, who lives in the jealousy rather than in the conscience of Europe or whether in this miracu lous Republic they break through the caste of twenty centuries, and, belying universal history, reach the full statue of citizenship, and in peace maintain it we shall give them uttermost justice and abiding friendship. And what ever we do, into whatever seeming es trangement we may be driven.nothing shall disturb the love we bear this Re public, or mitigate our consecration to . its service. I stand here, Mr. Presi dent, profess no new loyalty. When General Lee,whose heart was the tem ple of our hopes, and whose arm was clothed with our strength, renewed his allegiance to this government at Appomattox,he spoke from a heart too great to be false, and he spoke for every honest man from Maryland to Texas. From that dty to this Hamli car has nowhere in the South sworn young Hannibal to hatred and ven geance, but everywhere to loyalty and to love. Witness the veteran standing at, the base of a Confederate monu ment,above the graves of his comrades, his empty sleeve tossing in the April wind, adjuring the young men about him to serve as earnest and loyal citi zens the government against which their fathers fought. This message,de livered from that sacred presence, has gone home to the hearts of his fellow?. And sir, I declare here, if physical courage be always equal to. human as- : . ' ..'milI in t ir- if" need be, to restore this Republic their fathers fought lo dissolve ! Such, Mr. President, is this prob lem as we see it, such is the temper in which we approach it, such the prog ress made. What do we ask of you? First, patience; out of this alone can come perfect work. Second, confi dence'; in this alonne can you judge fairly. Third, sympathy ; in this you can help us best. Fourth, girii5 your sons as hostages. When you plant your capital in mill ions, send your sons that they may know how true are our hearts,and may help to swell the Cau casian current until it can carry with out danger this black infusion. Fifth, loyalty to the Republic for there is sectionalism in loyalty as in entrange ment. This hour little needs the loy alty that is loyal to one section and yet holds the other in enduring sus picion and estrangement. Give us the broad and perfect loyalty that loves and trusts Georgia alike with Massa chusetts that knows no South, no North, no East, no West, but endures with equal and patriotic love every foot of our soil, every State of our Union. A mighty duty, sir, and a mighty in spiration impels every one of us to night to lose in patriotic consecration whatever entranges, whatever divides. We, sir, are Americans and we stand for human liberty ! The uplifting force of the American idea is under every throne on earth. France, Bra zil these are are our victories. To redeem the earth from Kingcraft and oppression this is our mission ! And we shall not fail. God has sown in our soil the seed of his millennial har vest, and He will not lay the sickle to the ripening crop until His lull and perfect day has come. Our history, sir, has been a constant and expand ing miracle from Plymouth Rock and Jamestown all the way aye, even from the hour when, from the voiceless and trackless ocean, a new world rose to the sight of the inspired sailor. As we approach the fourth centennial of that stupendous day when the Old World will come to marvel and to learn amid our gathered treasures let us resolve to crown the miracles of our past with the spectacle of a Re public, compact, united, indissoluble in the bonds of love loving from the lakes to the frulf -the wounds of war healed in every heart as on every hill -serene and resplendent at the sum mit of human achievement and earth ly glory blazing out the path, and making clear the way up which all the nations of the earth must come in God's appointed time. The True Way. Wilson Mhrow.J In the garden of the heart no weeds of distrust should be allowed to grow, for their poisenous stench and wither ing exhalations send light and destruc tion to those pure and sweet and beau teous flowers of affection and devotion which alone should bud and blossom there with all their Heaven linted bloom and beauty. These flowers, at first, are tender, fragile and delicate, and cannot live in an atmosphere per meated and saturated with the foul breath of distrust, and their soft sensi tive roots cannot derive sustenance from a soil embeded with the brairs of accusation, and the brambles of ani madversion. No, they caanot flourish amid such surroundings. They need the purest atmosphere of implicit and perfect trust; they need the refreshing dews of the kindliest ministry.and the soft, mildjinvigorating and fructifying sunlight of that Heaven-created faith whose effulgent fires melt all fogs and mist of doubt away, and leaves a flood of glory there. With these agencies, the flowers of the heart, love, devotion harmony and honeyed endearments will attain the richest bloom and beauty and luxurance, and their odors will make home life assweetand delectable and entrancing as the fragance dis tilled from the garden of Paradise. Useful and Interesting' Winter Head ing". For the coming winter especially, Pomeroy's "Advance Thought1' will be an interesting and useful visitor. Its historical chapters on great men, and why they are called great, will be be entertaining and interesting to all and will in two years be published with additional matter similar to low priced books for the school children and others. "Brick" Pomeroy's Jour ney of Life will continue for this and the coming year. Parson Pomeroy's Preachin' will run wider, deeper and higher in its touch of shams and errors. The Saturday Night articles will be continued as a suggestive and useful feature. The presentation of ideas and arguments in favor of temperance as a safe principle and security for a bet ter and happier life, will be continued. Pertinent remarks as called for by in fringement of good laws and good usage will be a prominent feature each issue. In short, Advance TJioupht will deserve the attention and support of all Only S.oo per year. Address Ad vance TJwught Co., 234 Broadway, N. V.

(.Wilmington Star. While North Carolina has not $m ployed bands nor even single horn blowers to make a racket over what she is doing, it will be foHnd when the returns are all in that she will be at the front. She has within her borders air the elements that goto make a grand and a prosperous commonwealth that is written opposite her name, in the book of destiny. She moves deliberately measures her ground and looks before she leaps. Conservatism, backed by grit, when they do move is one of the characteristics of her people and hence progress,though it may seem slow to some, is steady and solid. She is going straight for the front how ever in-her own good, cool, levelhead ed way and she is going to get there in good time whithout running herself out of breath. Greensboro' is reported as on a great boom. People are moving in and property is appreciating in value. It is said that twenty pieces of proper ty changed hands there in one day. The cause of the doom is the projected Bessemer steel works to be erected there.

But he found out what hit him, all the same. A bicycle club in Baltimore had a candidate in the field. A bicycle candidate ought to iun pretty well, but this one didn't.

Of Special Interest to all our Readers Who j Possess the Bonn of a Baby. j A magazine devoted to the care of in-! iants was established in New 1 ork a few years ago. Its plan was to procure the best writing that money could buy from physicians, trained nurses, and every one else who was competent to advise in the perplexities that confront conscientious parents who aim at successful training of their children. An experienced physician was placed in charge as medical editor. This magazine, Babyhood by name, has met with remarkable success the world over. Its foreign subscription list was suf ficiently large for it to establish a London office last year and begin the issue of a foreign edition. Babyhood contains important uonular articles on infants diseases ; departments of "Nursery Problems," in which numer ous questions of subscribers are answered : Nursery lielps and Novelties." com prising descriptions of recent inventions and convenient nursery furnishings ; a " Mothers' Parliament." containine-'inter- esting letters from readers, etc., e:c. The Congregationalist recently said : " Every issue of Babyhood confirms us m the opin ion which we have often expressed, viz., that it is peerless in its way. It is full of material of the most practical value to all mothers, and it must be read to be annre- ciated. It is doing missionary work of a liy special arrangements with the pub lishers, we are enabled this year to make nn unusual offer : The regular price of Babyhood is $1.50 a year.
