Back of the•error . that slavery IS the cause'
of the rehellion aiukthat ita•semo . valitinecea•
nary to cure,,lieti,the grave and terrible 'Mis
take which' has been:made by these.who have,
supposed the slave to he the grand 'object of.
sympathy: and of benevolent consideration, and,
who 'ha . ve regarded slavery aS' the 'subject of
moat political , importance, when in reglitY. the. '
negro, the colored' race, , is the true subject of
national andelftiVitableeffort.. Irwas lohg.ago
.plain that it was not half so impOrtant to 'con;
sider how:to remove slavery as how to remove
the negro.: The great problem teward:Which,
'men.should have directedtheir lab Ors and .
veetigations, was how2,to treat. arace: that is 1
amongui that mixes with our
populaiion, but cannot rninglawith. our blond.
This subject involves to some ex tent the gen-,
eral subject of slavery, . but only as the greater
includes the less. For years, the, earneit,
ive mind of the nation, not the fitful and pas
sionate mind of radical reforms, but thaititel...
lectual force which formed and which hai
reefed the • course thegoverprhent,.in its
great. work of benefit toManyind, has regarded
this question as connected with the nation, and
attemptertto keep,the national counsels di.
rected toward lt, instead Of toward the irifetior
questien of the posltion'ot aportion of the 'rac e
while among us.' At is conceded oiterywhere
that the race is inferior; 'whether by reason of
its long experience in barbarism, and its trans- -
ler to -a p'osition, of -subjection:in a civilized
land, or whether by nature, it does.not concern
•. •
us atpresent . to inquire:. The race is now of
of a, lower order, antlthe eXceptional,cases
Which are (torn time to time brought forward,
only Serve to show.. more distinctly the sad
truth in relation to the whole negro family. =
Being inferior they demand our, sympathy and
oar aid. Th..y cannot be in.lde citizens,, of
'equal rights with the whites '
, 'unless we ever,
throw the order of nature and at once adopt
amalgamation. 'This.may possibly badisPuted
'but tbere is.nO dividing line. .For'example, if
the law should :declare the: negro entitled to
equal rights; he may not only demand admi.s.
Ilion '
to the same hotel (for the law compelathe
hotel to receive. the decent guestO but if it he
crowded, and in a place where it,,is the custom
to put two or more in a. , roonn;he may demand
admiasion to . the same' room with :the ,White
citizen, to the:same table,-tothe .seme ;steam
boatstate roam, the samesleeping car, in short
he may by law demand everything. that a white
inert' may.demand. If tie'may rightfully de.
,mandall would . absurd and impes.
sible to deny his social equality, even to the
extent ofintermarriage. We do not dwell on
the argument, which must. be plain. The in
stunt'a distinction is drawn between the races,
as to Marriage, tables, hotels,. railway cars or
. .elieWhera, that. instant it' superiorittand
feriority 'of races is declared. No.' man ,
consistently ad;Mcite the,equality of the negro
and ihe white man in rights,. without
advocating social equality also. Whether 'a
decent negro .is not a uetter companion t
han d
dirty white • mad has.nothing to'do with the
question . ..l. We
,are not 'discussing :natters of
taste...l'ersmtat preferences have nothing to
do Kith general principles. • We have ourselves
no prejudices on the subject .whatever; rind
.that our motives may not be misrepresented, it:
is proper to say that there are colored. men to
whom we are pe:scinally artached with yeti ,
great affection, and who are better fitted -. to be
.companione 'and frinds, than'a . vast. nntriber of
nominally respectable..white peraona... But
theseirerY periOns are mostfirmly convinced of
the dependent 'character of. their.people, and'
Most anxious for the opportunity of - trying, on
a national scale, the question. Whether the in. 7
ferterity is natural or the result. of

The problem, then, is;what. to' do with an

domr •Is'the poor starving'negro in neveYork,
or in, Canada, really; much more free .'ihan• a

a coloredroan with a family, who was an hon
est intelligent man, with good wages in a me
chanical employment a year or so ago, who
thrown Cii.trOl work,.has been most 01 the year
dependent on charity for:his family,and is now
laboring eighteen hours

where, no :white man .woalddo the Work , for
twice the pay, and is earning

to work, but compelled to lead a life of:. want.
He would not exchange his present life.for sla

result of the cOniparison filet to

'of masters, most . bef 'considered instead of

We-do' not state this is.an.argumentin-fa,
vor of the perpetuation of slavery; but 'sol'ely .
as•a,reason - against its.abolition, unless accom.
panied . by a provision for .the protection' of *the
poor -inexperienced race suddenly confronted
with the possibility of perishing from want.---
i3efore abolishing slavery, , means must be taken .
:to provide for the colored race.;. 'With every
'plan of emancipation should . be connected a
plan of 'taking care.of . the *negro. To propose
emancicatioO without providing colonization,
is to destroy the negro race,atul to injure the
race at the same time. FroM all this it is plain
enough that the disposition of the negro race
is the main question preceding.and controlling .
'the question of slavery. • .
In forther years, the best
,men.of. the • South
were, agreed with those of thelslorth.on this
Subject. When the agitation of the minor ques
tion made the discussion of the 'whole aubjeet
unprofitable, they.fell •bacit to the true ground
of reasonable Men, that :abolitionism Was a
,dangerous, principle,. dangerous to the .white .
race as to the black, and the grand. queStion of
all, the fate of the colored`' face, was suffered
to drop, in the 'presence Of. the fierce s discussion
Of abolition. - • ' . . . .
'We are now on the verge of a period when
the itiinds'ofthe North and t he South must be.
harmonized in someway, if the ccnintry.is •to
be one. On the subject 'of thelieliTrace,,lf
the . discussiOn of abolitionism ..continues, the:
hatred: of :North and. South will be eternal.— .
