why they so voted. 1 le say. they were
compelled by a sense of duty "to vote
in solid phalanx against the whites."
As it scented to the mucks tlmt the
question on which they wore voting
was whether they should ever have
the ehanee to vote again, it was abso
lutely impossible that they should vote
away their own right to vote. He
predicts that as soon as the question of

questions of Slate and Xational policy.
The blacks not only believe but arden
tly pray that after the Constitution is
formed, securing their rights, the
blacks may never again bo obliged to
vote as a party together, or against the
whites. This is certainly a clear state

voted iu the manner in which they did.

disconnected and broken with frcn-

ot enthusiasm passes over his mind,

emaciated mid nnlneld

Kisiisess, Kind words aro looked npon
like jewels on the breast, eovortobu forgotten,
and perhaps to cheer the memory along sad
life ; while words of cruelty or carelessness,
are like swords in the bosom, wounding and
leaving scars which will be bomo to the gmva

"Contraction and expansion aro
convertnble terms, as applied to cur
rency," said an inveterate humorist to
a financial friend. The friend, as in
duty bound, asked, "How so?" Tho
reply came thus: "You admit that
our currency is a debt ?" The friend
nodded. "Well, then, when you con
tract a currency you contract a debt ;
which, I take it, is equivalent to ex
pansion. So you see the twoi things
mean the same thin!?."
