-"THE PITTSBURG- DISPATCH, HONDAY, . AUGUST 19,
An Interesting Colored Campmeeting
Out at Wilkinsbnrg.
THE ACQUITTED PEEACHER GLAD,
likewise Two of His Attorneys, That His
faith Was Finn.
COL. ECHOLS AKD JIB. BALDWIN SPEAK
The campmeetinc of the colored people
at Wilkinsburg GroTe yesterday -was a com
plete success. A larger or more respectable
crowd has seldom been seen in any gather
ing of this kind. The colored people had
flocked from all points of the compass, and
each was arranged in his best, and his most
elegant smile. High stiff hats, Prince
(Albert coats, gold-headed canes and fash
ionable attire of all kinds were there.
Nearly as many whites as colored folk
were present, drawn there no donbt by the
report that the Kev. E. F. Flemon. would
speak, and by heir desire to see the far
famed preacher. Kev. G. F. Clinton, pastor
of the Arthur Street 1L E. Church, acted as
master of ceremonies, and introduced the
various speakers. There was very good
singing in the grove, and plenty of it; in
deed, this is almost a foregone conclusion
when the colored people have charge.
COLONEL ECHOLS TALKS.
After the prayer, by Eev. Mr. Flemon,
Colonel John "W. Echols, the attorney who
had defended him against a South Carolina
gallows, was introduced as the first orator of
the day. He spoke briefly of the interest
he had taken in Flemon and of his feelings
for those of his clients whom he had suc
ceeded in saving from the gallows. He
drew very appropriate morals from the
'whole occurrence and argued that the col
ored people should aim at a higher standard
of manhood. There were two chief ways he
would suggest to secure this end. The first
was by means of education; the second, an
increased effort on the part of the colored
people to become land proprietors. He
spoke feelingly of his interest in the colored
race and expressed the hopes he entertained
for their future prosperity.
JIajor J. H. Baldwin, another of the at
torneys interested in the Flemon case, was
the next speaker. He claimed tbat the
colored race should aim not only at theat
tainment of manhood, but of Christian
manhood. The hand of God had been
plainly visible in all that had happened to
the colored race. The acquittal of Flemon
marked a new era in the history lot that
race. Just as Flemon had been defended
successfully from his enemies in the South,
so should the 7,000,000 of his fellow people
down there be defended.
IT "WAS A SHAME
that throughout the whole of the North not
a single organization existed among colored
men for the protection of their brethren.
Let Pittsburg take the lead in this, and all
the other cities would lollow her example.
He advanced, in addition, a most effective
plea to have the debts contracted in the late
trial obliterated, and his words had quite a
larked effect on his hearers.
During an intermission a collection was
taken, and Eev. Mr. Flemon busied himself
in disposing of tickets lor his lecture to
night. Afterward he made a few remarks
from the platform, expressing his pleasure
at being present, and his thanks to all who
had helped him in his late trouble. He
drew a powerful moral from his own ex
perience. He had always trusted in God,
and when he was taken South, placed in the
hands of his enemies, and almost brought
face to face with death, that trust had never
weakened. That it was not without a strong
foundation was shown by his acquittal, and
he appealed to his audience not to desert a
God of such goodness.
The colored ladies present were intensely
affected, and their halleluiahs and aniens
were especially fervent. The campmeeting
will be concluded next Sunday.

ASPHALTUil BLOCK MATTEES.
The PhilndelphK Firm to Erect a Block
Factory at New Castle. r
The laying of asphaltum blocks on Fed
eral street is progressing rapidly, and
within a few days the experimental square
will be finished. There are 1,100 square
yards in the section being relaid and the ex
pense will be about (2,600.
It is learned that the Philadelphia firm,
which owns or controls the patents nnder
which the block is put .upon the market,
has secured some land in New Castle upon
-which a branch factory will be erected
within a few months. This is said to be for
the purpose of saving freight upon block
nsed in the two cities. But it also indicates
that the firm has hopes of a whacking.big
contract from somebody not a thousand
miles from New Castle.

Modest Demands Known Tho Com
At 2 r. it. yesterday the Single Tax
League met at the hall of the Union Veter
an Legion, on Sixth avenue, to listen to an
address upon "Man's Natural Eight to
Land," by Mr. L J. Quinn, who said:
"In the beginning the world was created
with fixed laws to govern its action and the
actions of its inhabitants. All men are
bound by, and are equal under
these laws and have equal privileges.
One of these privileges is an equal right to
the ownership of land by each and every
man. Now as all land will not yield the
same return for the same amount of labor
expended upon it, all men will seek tosup
port themselves upon the ground requiring
the least quantity of manual work. The
owners of the better kind of land should
therefore be required to give an equivalent
to the Government for the value of the land
above the margin of cultivation.
"In this country, however, men havebeen
deprived of their natural right to land, and
by the very ones who, though they fought
for liberty in the Rebellion, had not the
courage to insert this principle in the Con
stitution. This duty now devolves upon the
present generation. Do we not see on all
sides of us the evidence of the injustice of
our present system. Men out of work,
women and children starving, vice and crime
spreading, and need I point out the remedy?
"You all know that the single taxorf land
is the only remedy. It will give steady em
ployment to everv man, spread peace through
all the nations, destroy avarice and greed
and spread abundance on all sides. Let us
then be united in our action. Let us force
concessions from the two great parties by
sheer power of numbers. Among the many
things we should do is insist on the re
duction of the tariff, that exorbitant and un
just tax, oppose all taxes in the States that
oppose the people, and not on land values,
assist all schemes for the repeal of the old
tax laws and support every candidate for
election who we know entertains our views.
If we do this we may be sure that the single
tax on land will eventually triumph."
E0W AT A CAMPMEETING.
Two Colored Damsels Fight Over the Pos
session of One Bean
"While the services were at their height in
the campmeeting of the colored folk at
"Wilkinsburg Grove yesterday, two dusky
damsels were actively engaged in a most
bitter fight. They showed conclusively that
the clouds of war are liable to break in upon
the most peaceful and religious gathering.
One of the young women had come to the
meeting with an escort, and, 'while she was
in another part of the grove, the services of
this gentleman were appropriated by dam
sel No. 2. This enterprising lady sent the
gentleman after something and, during his
absence, No. 1 put in an appearance.
"What you mean, woman," she shouted,
"taking my fellah? I came to the meeting
with that "man." The other replied that
she didn't care whose fellow he was, as long
as she was with him. Then they went for
one another, and the way in which bonnets
were smashed, hair pulled, faces scratched
and clothes disarranged was a caution. The
fight was finally stopped, but not before it
had caused amusement for those looking on.
The belligerent parties were dragged away,
heaping imprecations on the beads of each
other, and laying claim to the ownership of
"that fellow" in the most earnest manner.
PLEDGES AT THE PLAT.
A Novel Flan of Making Ten Nights In a
Barroom Quito Effective.
In connection with Theatrical Manager
P. Harris' telegram last night to Harry
Shwab, of this city, to keep "Ten Nights in
a Barroom" on the stage at Hams' Theater
for at least three nights more, the latter
gentleman has a novel scheme. It is this,
and he will endeavor to bring it to a head:
To set aside one of the nights and designate
it as "temperance night," inviting local
temperance leaders, including' T. "Edward
Murphy, to be present with pledges, and
circulate them for signature at the most
telling part of the performance. The old
play is certainly a most dramatic temper
ance lecture in itself, and the plan, to make
it doubly so, is at least novel in conception.

ONE MISERLY OLD PARMER'S PLAN.

TEACTS IS PLACE OF YEHICLE TICKETS
If a student of human nature wished to
depict it in either burning poetry or staid
prose he could probably do no better than
to get a position as toll collector on a bridge.
He would strike all the phases of humanity
ever depicted by Dickens, and a great many
others that even the fertile mind of that ge
nius never conceived. He would come
in contact with men who would
risk limb and sometimes life to
save their paper from going to protest, but
who would think nothing of losing time
worth a dime in the concoction of a scheme
to beat a hard-worked toll collector out of a
cent. Mr. Gheinor, who takes toll at the
north end of the Smithfield street bridge,
can tell some queer experiences, and doubt
less any observant man who has filled a like
position for six months could tell something
The writer recollects the time when the
toll on the bridge was 2 cents, and the
temptation to evade it, in consequence, 100
per cent greater than it is now. One day
an ancient and wealthy granger with
patriarchal beard of'theNorth-of-England
cut, such as the Kernells affect on the
stage, was heard remarking as follows to
his son, a lad of 10 years, as they stood
opposite the Monongahela House:
WHERE HE -WAS WRONG.
"The man that takes the money will be
busy for some time, and I think we can
sneak over without paying." The dutiful
boy saw no harm in anything legalized
by his progenitor. They proceeded to
sneak, going on the opposite side of the
bridge from the collector. They had
miscalculated, however. He caught
them in one corner of his
eye, and howled at them. The old man
was so badly frightened that he scooted
across and threw down 4 cents, and could
not be induced to wait to hear the collector's
explanation that only 2 cents were wanted,
and that 10-year-old boys were not chargea
ble. The next day was Sunday, and the
old agricnlturist found it necessary to again
cross the bridge with the boy In order to at
tend church. He didn't try to sneak
this time, but again threw down
4 cents. The collector .had a con
science, and called after the old man that
toll was not wanted; but the ancient pil
grim was too much frightened to hear, and
so was out 4 cents in his effort to beat the
corporation out of 2. Conscience made a
coward of him. This man was an elder in a
country church, and his word was as good as
his bond; but he held that "Opposition to
tyrants is obedience 'to God," and all cor-
E orations were tyrannical, in his moral
orizon. There was and is still also a
streak of meanness running all through his
.COLLECTING LITTLE TBACTS.
These bridge corporations issue vehicle
tickets; and when a toll-taker is very busy
he frequently finds that in his hurry he has
taken up instead of a bridge ticket one of a
similar color bearing such inscriptions as
"Pray -without ceasing," or some other
pious admonition, issued by Sunday
The United Kingdom sends a great many
citizens to this country who for many years
persistently object to paying toll, demand
ing to know of the collector how Columbia
can be a free country when people must pay
toll to pass from one part of a city io an
other. One of the inducements held ont"by polit
ical annexationists to the Southsiders to get
them to vote for consolidation was that the
bridges would be free when consolidation
was secured; and it got many votes, as 54 a
year saved was supposed to compensate
thousands for necessarily increased taxa
tion. One bibulous citizen who lived on
Mt. Washington had a row with David
Barker, almost nightly for years after con
solidation, on this subject, and never yielded
save when it became either a question of
compliance or a trip to the lockup.
Dudes who take their girls 'out for a
promenade are a source of much trouble to
the collector. They walk on the opposite
side oi the bridge from him, and when called
to book, assert tbat they didn't know it was
a toll bridge. If the collector happens to
be in a hurry they frequently succeed in
escaping him, as he cannot follow them.
AIT INTERROGATION POINTER.
Some people regard the toll collector as a
guide board, and ask him innumerable
questions about the time trains leave
and about many other things.
If the collector understands his
business he answers all questions
not positively insulting, amiably, Dut this
suavity only comes of experience, and is
only learned in the school of philosophy
and ,'self-mortlfication. Some are'very ob
tuse, and it is difficult to make them under
stand that the collector really wants the pal
try hali-penny demanded Some are ab
sorbed in a reverie, and forget, while con
templating the new Baltimore and Ohio
Railroad station, the existence of a toll
taker. Then there is the dignified drunk
ard, who goes to sleep while searching his
pockets for a cent.
On Saturday nights people who havebeen
"setting 'em up again," to the extent of
probably several dollars, grow very poor be
fore they go home, and will stand from 11
until tZ o'clock within a square of a bridge,
awaiting the striking of (he town bell which
announces the first day of the week, and
enables them to cross without paying a cent.
On Sunday night, when they have tarried
long with their best girls, they forget that
the striking of the bell announces Monday,
and persist that they won't pay toll on Sun
day. There are on the Smithfield street bridge
some 900 renters, and sometimes the collec
tors forget some of their faces,and frequently
their demand to see a commutation ticket is
the prelude to a row.
If you haven't the patience of Job and
the philosophy of a Stoic don't apply for
the position as toll collector on a bridge,
for, unless so gifted, yon will not live out
half your days, and those you do have will
be robbed of all sweetness and light.

A YOKE THAT IS EASY.
Kev. W. F. Johnston at the First Presby
terian Church Yesterday He Preached
on i the Feahy Which Man Owes to God.
Kev. "W. F. Johnston, D. D., President
of Biddle University, Charlotte, N. C,
preached yesterday evening, at 7:45 at the
First Presbyterian Church, "Wood street.
He took for his text Matt. xi. 29 and 30:
"Tate my yoke upon you and learn of me,
for I am meek and loving in heart; and ye
shall find rest unto your souls" "For my
yoke is easy and my burden is light."
Enlarging upon these divine words, he
emphasized the truth of the dogma that
God's burden was a light one. It was
necessary for man strong as his spirit
might be to bow to this yoke and to
carry this burden. The proudest and
loftiest monarch of the forest may
be enwrapped in clinging ivy. The ivy is'
.on Northern shores. The Greek lorms of
worship appeal only to the philosopher, the
poet and the sage. To the ignorant, and,
indeedj to the ordinary man, they would be
inexplicable. Bnt Christianity, on the
other hand, will suit the minds of Northern
and Eastern, learned and unlearned alike.
There is no country in which Christianity
would seem out of place. This shows the,
wonderlul nature of the yoke we are called
upon to bear. Man.musthavesome master.
If he accept not Goa for his master he must
of necessity accept the devil. There is no
choioc left to him.
The preacher closed his sermon with a
few glowing words in which he exhorted all
present to accept Christ's yoke and Christ's
burden is not a yoke, but itis so light that it
is scarcely to be felt, and it immeasurably
brightens and beautifies the tree. The yoke
which God imposes is that of Christianity,
and the ycke must be borne in a proper
manner. Christianity is a faith made by
God so as to suit the temperament of every
man, to whatsoever nation he may belong.
This can be said of no other form of
worship. The sensuality of Mahomedanism
wouldill-suitthe fierce Norseman or the Sax
on with his sturdy, honest soul. The ascetic
teachings of the Brahmin religion wonld be
equally out of place,only as the lightest and
the most profitable, but also as the noblest
and the best.
TO KEEP THE SABBATH.
Rot. B. L. Herr Preaches on This Subject at
Fourth Avenne Church.
Bev. Benjamin Ii. Herr, of Tarrytown,
N. Y., preached last evening at the Fourth
Avenue Baptist Church. His text was Ex
odus xx, 8-11: "Bemember the Sabbath day,
keep it holy." The preacher, who is a son
of Bev. Dr. Herr, some time pastor of one
of the Pittsburg Baptist churches, delivered
an interesting discourse, dealing with Sun
day desecration. He called upon all those
of the congregation who employed drivers
to drive them to church not to debar these
drivers from attending services also, but to
insist that they also enter the sacred portals
and keep Sunday as he thought it ought to
be kept namely, in prayer and thanks
giving. CONDUCTED BI THE BISHOP.
A Special Communion Service Held for
Yesterday afternoon communion service
was held in St. Peter's Church, Pittsburg,
for the benefit of some colored visitors to the
city. Bishop "Whitehead preached and
described the nature and origin of the sacra
ment, dwelling graphically upon the tender
incidents of the last supper of Christ.
This service is usually held in Trinity
Church; but, for the benefit ot the colored
communicants, the Bishop caused it to take
place in St. Peter's.
