-Asa class the , colored people of this city
and - iieletbothoed are as thrifti, intelli
gent,mrell doing and respectable as those

They- umber in their ranks seholaraof

daughters of one colored citizens; MO, are as"
refined in their-conduct said manners, as pol
ished and brilliant in conversation; and as
thoroughly acquainted with literature and
the fine arts as - those -who may figure in
higher walks of life. ,Inviaw of these facts
it was not surprising that so large and in-
.terestir' sg an audience assembled last night
at the commodious African Mt. Church,
zn,y7ylie street, to listen to the addressses
or the eminent gentlemen announced to
steak In behalf of the Freedmen of the
1 nd.. Every seat was occupied, and nearly
'au of representative colorid people
of the city were present_ as deeply inter
ested particlpards. There were present
also a large number of our leading white
,whose - sympathies have been
awakened in the cause of the .race that is
merging from darkness and oppression
Into light and' he full enjoyment of liberty.
The meeting was one of the most interest
ing we have ever attended. and was such
as to inspire renewed confidence in the
liberal character of our people, whoae
prejudice against color is rapidly pass
ing into the forgotten past; never
again to be called forth and nourished by
thrice accursed slaiery. Gen. Howard,
the soldier and philanthropist, was over•
joyed with the meeting. Seldom had he
seen so many intelligent colored folks as
sembled under one roof, with s 6 large a
proportion of their, ethicated and refined
white neighbors, all having next and near
est their hearts the same noble object, the
erevation of the Freedmen to his 'proper
level. He felt that his labors in that direc
tion -were not altogether unappreciated
throughout the land; and read a brighter
day for the colored people of America in
the auspicious gathering before him.
The meeting was called to order by Rev.
W. A. Hunter, who stated that the ob
ject in view was a Chriatlan ono, and it was
proper that it should be opened with relig
ious -exercises. He then read the hymn
JehovalVs Awful Throne
- Ye nations bow with saeredj or. "
Which was sang in a most admirable man
ner by the choir, with instrumental
paniment, and was followed with prayer
by Rev. W. A. Hunter. The choir then
;sang a beautiful voluntary , after which
Rev. Mr. Hunter introduced to thepmeeting
I J. L. ussrearox,
ale eminent colored orator and lawyer.
The high character and reputation of this
gentleman, who arose out of slavery, high
er, higher and higher in the walks of life,
law and literature, had preceded him, but
few present were prepared to. find in him
-so finished arr, orator, such a clear thinker
and argumentative speaker. -Possessing a
fine appearance, a rich, full and _command
ing voice, a natural grace and finish, he
made a marked Ampresslon on • his hearers
before he had well entered upon his sub
ject. That he is no vain demagogue, hav
. personal glory at heart, but s awful
ly in earnest in doing battle in the
cause of the Colored people of America, was
made apparent in every sentence he ntter
ed. He scorned to flatter the black man
into belief that he was the peer of his
white neighbor, unless, indeed, the bitter
ordeal of AOHIETEMENT was passed through
and the record made in his - favor. The Al
mighty standing at the sepulchre of a peo
ple said, "Come forth, sons and daugh
ters, come forth!" And three and one-half
' millions of 'people' came forth at the bid
ding, and throwing away SLAVERY, as
sumed LIBERTY. They were to commence
new life in earnest, and were to meet the
expectatioa of friendi who expeCted good
things of them, and disappoint their ene
mies, who predicted evil to folloivtheir de
liverance—evil to themselves. In slavery,
perhaps, it was right to avoid work, but lib.'
erty means to life a struggle, work, not
rest either to the individual or to• the peo
ple. _ Liberty is a serious thing, a veritable
fact.' It is the grand opportunity for strug
gle, to .do, to make ourself or to make a
people. The Lord, in His Providence, says
to each of us, "Support thyself."' If we do
so, we will prove true to our manhood and'
realize the expectations of our friends.
The question will be asked, How shall we
make'real these expectations?` We must
have self-reliance. A man makes himself
great just. in proportion to the earnestness
of his efforts and his self-rehanee in prose
cuting a mission. When, in 1776, the solo=
flies declared themselves a free and inde
pendent nation, they did not rely' for help
• on august France or any other nation, but
proceeded to develop their own power, and
to -day through that self-reliance stands the
greatest and most powerful nation on the
face of the globe. Self-reliance, as an esseo
tie'. to prosperity and success, must be
learned by all men, 'white or colored.
Life takeii in earnest, is to acquire prop.
arty for ourselves, secure an education,-
establish ,and maintain character. All of
these things the colored man-must, gain
for himself. Before coining out.of slavery
he was a thing.' owned by the slaveholder,
and so treated. But he is his own master
to-day, and should strive to make himself.
To do this he must acquire property which
bas two values. It bring us every temporal
thing we need; it carries moral power with
it, making its , possessor well thopght of
in the community. A man who caufacquire
property must have some good qualities of
character—thrift industry , economy and
intelligence. It s a truism, to some: extent,
that our opinion of a man changes in pro
portion to the amcrunt.of weath he accumu
lates. Hence, the friends of the blackmim
are expecting him to the best of his ability
and opportunity to amass property. They
have parental care over him, and what a
man expects his own son to do in life, they
expect him to do.. All men love money.
because by it they
.purchase esteem, and
- erect a platform on which to stand. The
colored people want money as a lever
to lift themselves up to the higher planes
Education is wanted, is needed. There
is more eduction than that aeqhired from
books; to the colored man it means the cul
tivation of every power-which pertains to
elevated life. Its their business to edu
cate themselves sn far as possible without
calling for assistance from their friends. It
'is a parent's lu.i.ary to educate their chil
dren and those able to do-so should appre-T.
elate it as such. It is their duty to sacrifice
ease, luxury and even ,comfort to provide
for the proper,education of their children.;
the Speaker referred in no flattering terms'
to the apparent indifference of the colored
people of the North to this great subj ect.
Oberlin College with its 700,white stuents
contains but 60 colored ones; Avery Col,
_lege with its accommodations for 500 has
but 200 scholars in attendance, and as for
the graduates from colleges in operation,
they can be counted in ten - Liguria. - The
freedmen of the South are thirsting for
knowledge, while tho-colored people of the
North are slow to appreciate and patronize
their places 6f - learning. Every colored
educational institution should be gener
ously supported by thew:vain:ions to secure

Langston uttered an appeal ter temperance

than which ever came from the Lips of

Character is nee by the black man.
Orators may flatter them by calling them
good people, but that does not make them
such. They mus 4 build up character, for
when they came out of slavery, as individ
uals or as people,lthey had no character:
The speaker did not care to inquire after
the character now of those threeand one
half millions of -people sot free, a neither
should any black man. Each has to make
himself a character. When that is &acorn
plished, then the grand aggregate gives the
character to the race. Thus each will see
that he holds in the hollow of his hand the
character of those who are united to him
by blood and oppression.
Mr. Lanston in a brilliant ueroration set
forth that on the three great "essential
things,PlMPEßilt, EDUCATION and Ckeri
thrEe, depends the equality of the black
Man. By test, achievement, only shall
they be measured, and if they fall short of
the task and remain in: their present 'post
flan, waiting for other people to lift them
up to positions they are unworthy to
then they will prove themselves unequal
to the white race. To the contrary, should
they surmount , difficulties, push forward
steadily, onward and upward, and from the
height of achieVement look back to .those
they have outstripped in the race of.;-earn
est, active life, then they are equal am:taupe
:lor to all they have left behind them .
The speaker touched on other subjects,
but our allotted space is exhausted by the
brief thread of his disco:tasks° imperfectly
carried above, that we are compelled to
close our report of his remarks. He was
frequently interupted with bursts of ap
plause, and retired, carrying with him the
admiration of all who had the pleasure of
listening to his eloquent address.
At the conclusion of Mr. Langstim's re
marks, the choir sling inmost excellent
style, a sacred voluntary, after which Bei.
Mr. igunter. introduced
MAJ. OEN. O. O. HOWARD.
Gen. Howard, after a few preliminary re
marks, referred to the causes which en
listed him in the interest of the colored
man He said that when quite a small
boy, hid father had taken into the family a
minted boy, who remained In the family
until the death of his father, which was
the first linkingor conntmtion of his sympa
thies With - the negro. Then these sympa
thies were enlargened and strengthened,
after he had grown* to manhood; by a visit
to the South, after —he- bad gradu
ated at = West Point where for the
first time he learned and saw the
infamous workings of the institution of
slavery,. `_ln illustration of his experience
in the South he related a nnmber of heart
refiding incidents, the legitimate results of
slavery..-, He congratulated the ,colored
people onthe abolition of slavery, - and the
freedom of- the colored - race, and said' it
nowiremained for them to carve out their
own future. He tuncerely believed that
God made all his intelligent people of one
blood, and that belief should nerve every
christian far the work , that was ,before
hini, for the cultivation of their minds and
amelioration of the condition of the e i four
millions of people who had but recently
been released from a bondage of over two
hundred years. The. ikmen, he was
pleated to say were-making progress in ed
ucation and civilization. School houses were
springing up all over the South, and were
filled with pupils who were receiving
struction tiom competent teachers. Only
three years have expired since , he entered
upon the work of educating the Freedmen,
vet they have made wonderful regress.
tie had visited the school at `W _ a4ihington
City for colored persons and II found
there as high a grade of intellect as could
be found in any other schools. He had
also visited wheels in Masseehusetta,
where none but whites were admitted, and
found them in. no way superior to the
schools at Washington. Every Christian
man in the country sees new requirements
of himself and pf his church' in behalf of
the Freedmen. They must be educated,
and he wanted to see as complete a scitoo
system in Virginia, and all the Southern
States, as now existed in -Pennsylvania or
Massachusetts, = and Virginia would have
just such 'a system, he said, as soon as the
State was reconstructed. She was not
wanting in resources to educate her peo
pleoboth black and white. In a few years
there would be a complete common school
system throughout the South. The school
houses, he said, should be so numerous
that every child in the country
would have an opportunity of at
tending school. There should also be
normal schools established throughout
the South for the proper- training of teach
ers for thgpublic or common schools. SeV
eral such schools, he stated, have already
been estaolished, and although in opera
tion bud a short time, were doing a noble
work, and had sent out some most excel
lent teachers. He referred to the establish
ment of a university at Washington, D. C.,
and said that it was the intention to; create
a law school there, of which Mr. Langston
would be the - Professor. He hoped the col
ored people of the South as well as in the .
North Would become interested in the mat
ter of education, and educate their children,
if they have to labor night and day to dolt.
, Many persons, he said, found fault with
him for making the colored 'people ambih
dons. His object in having them ambitions
was to lift them out of the degradation and
ignorance in which the Institution of slavery
had placed them. -
There is a spirit abletad in `the land which
is continually.crying mit that the negro was
not the equal of the white man, and that
slavery_ haling been abolished, he, the
"negro, e,' would have to go to the wall; that
while slavery was inexistence, the white
man had en interest in the negro and pro
tected him, but now no one had any inter
est in him and he must go to. the wall. Ii
was that spirft which was burning down
school-houses throughout the South, and if
it prevailed the negro would go to the wall.
The speaker urged upon the colored people
the, necessity. of educating their children
and fitting them lor usefulness. They
altgald not be afraid of work, ; for labor of
all kinds waahonorable, if it was well Pei
He closed his address• with a beautifill
and eloquent peroration, in which ho highly
eulogized the efforts of the freedmen to ob
Rev. Mr. Nesbit, of Altoona, President
of the National Equal Rights League, was
then introduced, and in a brief address
urged upon the -people the Impertance of
the work before them and the necessity of
faithfully performing it. He stated that a
National Convention of the Equal Rights
League would be 'held at Washington. D.
C., in January next, and hoped they would
see the importance of sending some of their
best men as delegates to that Convention.
Rev. hir. Hunter, In a few remarks, re
ferred , to some of Gen. Howard's work in
behalf of the freednien,which the General's
modesty had prevented him from relating.

by the choir, after which the congregation
was dismissed with benediction.

Majoi General ,0.0. HoWard remained in
our city yesterday as the guest of President
Woods, of the Western University. Dur
ing the day he spent several hours at the
University, and while thee was visited• by
many of our most prominent citizens, pay
ing their respects to one so eminently
worthy. Gen. Howard delivered • a brief
but stirring and exceedingly interesting
address to the students of the University,
in which he urged them to recognize all
through their lives the, superintending
providence of God; This Was their -duty
and privilege. Whatever I their profession
might to, they can - ; all be great and good
men. God had a plan in 'every man's life,
and it is for the, highest interest 'of every
man to discover and work out that, plan.
He spoke of his having fitted for College at
an institution near to one I which was then
under the charge of their worthy Press=

Point, and afterwards 461 . ' his being in
structor at West Point, citing thus from his
own history some very interesting inci

Howard will leave the city to-day, carrying
with him, we believe, a very flattering
opinion of our people. •
For some time past Mr. George B.
M'Nulty, Weiglimaster of the Allegheny
Diamond Scales; hae noticed the myste
rlous disappearance of small sums of
moneyfrom the drawer, fn the weighhouse.
He was unable to account for it until last
week when his suspicions were aroused by'
noticing a party of boys loafing aroutd the ,
weigh house in a suspicious manner. Keep-
ing watch upon them, he pretty soon saw
one of them enter the weigh house through
one of the windows, and in folloiving
he soon foUnd the young rogue at, work on
the drawer. Getting under the desk, he
ran his hand through the small space be
tween the drawer and the desk, and, thus
was enabled to bring forth anythingiinside
of it. Mr. McNulty caught the boy just
as he was drawing his hand out, and took
him to the Mayor's office, where 'he gave
his name as Hatfield. At the time ap
pointed fora hearing the prosecutor was
I detained by busineka, and failed to appear,
in consequence of which .the boy was die,-
charged. Yesterday Mr. McNulty made

taken is about seventy dollars. When ar

Animer to Correspondenti.
We are - constantly being asked by corre
spondents why it is that Mr. Fleming, at
Nor 139 Wood street, can afford to sell
goods at much cheaper prices than any
other house in the city in the;sameline of
business. We trust this answer will serve
one and all and at the same time satisfac
torily show how he is enabled to do so. In
the first place, we account for the fact in
his system of large purchases at a time.
Having htid large and extended experience
in the fur and hat and cap business, he is
enabled to know where and what season, of
the year certain goods in his line of trade
may be bought cheapest. Patting his in
formation into practical use he buys.
at the proper places and -Just at the'
proper time. In' the next placA, from
his constantly, increasing trade, he has
adopted the motto, "quick sales and small
profits"—which be finds, as well as do his
customers, a very good one—and is neces
sarily a heavy purchaser, at all sea
sons of the year, securing great advantages
in price and selection. If these two potent
reasons are not fall enough, let the reader
call at Mr. Fleming's mid receive a more
explicit explanation and learn the truth of
what we have just stated. In the mean
while, all persons desiring to purchase
anything in the hat, cap and ftirline should
not fail to call and examine the immense
stock af No. 139 Wood street before pur
i.chaiing elsewhere. •
