on, expressed Jiits gratitiid;; that in the
heart of a Southern, rohoi, and former
l> slave State, lie, with his hearers,
eould eelehrate in tue spirit of freedom
the dav of freedom s hirlh.
The flat* which lie now held in his
hand was the emblem <>l Sreedom to
every one in the land not to those
only oecnpying a partienlar seetion,
hht to all within the wide iimil.s <J tlie
country. Kreedoin of flionylit, trie
doni of aetioii, and freedoin of eon
s.eieiii e, m re the hirlhrieht allotment.* j
of everv one born upon the soil. The I
realization ol this nglit had just come
to the experience of the colored men'
in the country. Mr. 11, showed the
workings of frei repithli-a-i «*, as
developed in the North; how these :
ideas had created sympathy for them •
in bondage; had tired tile hearts'of j
the jieople in tlie late conflict to prose
cute the war until the rights, guaran- 1
teeil to all in the Constitution, were se
curer! to the slaves.,
Tlie Republican party had been the
means of purchasing freedom for
tlie slaves. This same party would
now confirm in State constitutions this
freedom. No colored man who pre
ferred bis freedom to slavery, but
would vote this Fall, and always, for
the Republican party. It bad befriend
ed bis.rights. Tlie Democratic Robert
Toombs K. 11. Hill-Rebel party was for
jiiiljiny duim the colored men, and
virtually restoring him to slavery.
Mr. 11. could not doubt the course
tin.-colored men would take this Full
Mr. Abraham Smith (colored) follow
ed Mr. 11., endorsing the principles just
advanced; and, as a colored manhim
elf, urged to practically carry out tlie
same this F-11 by voting to a man “for
Ihc (Jonri at in; He regarded the
Republican party of to-day as embody
ing ail of principle and high-toned gen
erous scut iment possessed in the general
Constitution ; that in the strength fur
nished by those principles, this party
bad been able lo unite, and hold united,
the North in the prosecution of the
war. These pi inciples t riuniped in the
triumph of the war.
Mr. S. continued
Some assert that our old masters are
our la st, friends, but, I do not so under
stand iy. Ife could not make such a
deduction Iroin their acts and sayings.
He thought that any man, or set of
men, who opposed the freedom of his
race, arid their equal participation in
the blessuigs of political and moral
rights, were the worst, enemies the ne
gro had. He remembered the day
when their old masters offered to give
every poor white, man who would go
and light to hold his race in slavery,
a negro ; and many ol these poor men
had returned I rum the battlefield of
slavery less a leg or an arm, and with
no itiyro to mirt for them.

The colored people should all vote
together, so as to protect labor
against all mijurt legislation. Shall
we vote with the Democrat*? Never,
while the sun gives light! Never will

Importance of Learning a Trade.
\\ e extract the following sensible
and timely remarks from the Phila
delphia /jcdycr :
There is a growing tendency among
short-sighted parents to pul tlieir boys
in offices, under a false impression that
such occupation is more genteel than
tiie learning of a trade. This is a most
mischievous notion, and one that is
likely to entail upon their children
, troubles and sorrows and heart-burning
during the rest of tlieir lives.
All business is subject, lo fluctua
tions, which the wisdom of men and of
governments have thus far been unable
to control, and wlu-n a commercial or
financial depression occurs, those who
are the first, to sutler, and among the
most, helpless victims are book-keepers,
clerks, copyists, and office attendants
'•! every k■ and. Vt such times, the
workman r mo. -'rot the mechanical
trades can find I yment on his own
account. lln shoe-maker can make
shoes or mend them ; the tailor
can make garments or mend them;
the painter and glazier, the car
penter, the bell-hanger, the lock
smith, the plumber find the gas-fitter,
find many others that will occur to the
reader, can search lor and find odd
.jobs that will give them at least, the
meansoi living. Theskilled man, with
tools at his command, is, in most re
spects, master o| the situation. Rut
die clerk, the book-keeper, the office
I attendant, are helpless. They cannot
establish mercantile, commercial, or
in.'iinifaelmiiig houses, to give cm ploy -
| meut to themselves. They must wait
j many and many a weary day until the
season or the years ot depression are
over, betore they can find that employ
ment for their pens which they have
unfortunately made their sole means
of livelihood. Ail this is another of
| tin’ lamentable results of having learned
j no trade in childhood.

Josh Riflings says; “1 never bet
any stamps on the man who is always
telling what he would have done if he
had been there. I have noticed that
this kind never get there.”
M e are told by philosophers that
shutting the eyes make the hearing
more acute a fact that may account
for numerous closed eyes on Sundays.
The pageantry of this memorable
exhibition has drawn to a close. By
letter from the correspondent of the
Philadelphia Press, dated July 2d, we
are furnished a graphic description of
the magnificent closing of the Fair.
Our columns will permit but the fol
lowing extract, containing the closing
address by Napoleon. After a state
ment by M. Koulier, Minister of State,
showing the success of the Fair, the
Emperor rose and said:
Gkntj.emkn : After an interval of
twelve years I come, for the second
time, to distribute recompenses to
those who have most distinguished
themselves in the labors which enrich
nations, embellish private life, and
The poets of antiquity celebrated
magnificently the solemn games in
which the various peoples of Greece
came to dispute the prize of running.
What would they say to-day if they
witnessed these Olympian contests of
the entire world, where all the nations,
competing by intelligence, seem to
flush forward, all at the same time, in
the career of infinite progress towards
an ideal, which is ever approached, but
never attained. [ liOiid applause. |
From all points of the earth tlie rep
resentatives of Science, Arts, and Man
ufactures, have hastened to assemble
together, and it may be said that peo
ples and kings have come to honor the
efforts of labor, and by their presence
crown them with an idea of concilia
tion and peace. [Renewed applause.]
In fact, in these great meetings,
whieli appear to have only for their
object material interests, there is
always a moral thought which is
evolved from the competition of intel
ligences- that of concord and civiliza
tion. Nations, in drawing nearer
together, learn to know and esteem
each other; hate becomes extinguished,
and this truth becomes more and more
accredited—that the prosperity of each
country contributes to that of all. | Ap
The Exhibition of 1867 may justly
be called Universal; for it unites the
elements of all the riches of the globe;
by the side of the latest improvements
of modern art appear the products of
the most remote ages’, so that they
represent at the same time the genius
of every century and every nation. It,
is certainly universal; for, by the side
of the wonders which luxury produces
for some, if has paid the deepest atten
tion to what the necessities of tlie great
est, number require. 'Never have the
interests of the laborious classes awak
eiifcd a more lively solicitude. Their
moral and material wants, their educa
tion, the conditions of cheap existence,
and the most productive 'combinations
of association, have been the object of
patient research and serious study.
Thus, all improvements progress side
by side. It science, in subjugating
matter, emancipates labor, the culture
of tlie mind, bv suppressing vices, pre
judices and vulgar passions, sets hu
manity free. | Loud cheers.]
Let us congratulate ourselves, gen
tlemen, on having received amongst us
the greatest number of sovereigns and
princes of Europe, and so nianv eager
visitors. Lot us be proud, too, in hav
ing shown to them France as she is,
great, prosperous and free. [Cheers. |
One must be destitute of all patriotic
faith to doubt her greatness—close
one’s eves to evidence to. deny her
prosperity, and ignore her institutions
which are sometimes tolerant even to
the extent of license, not to perceive
the liberty existing here.
Foreigners have been able to appre
ciate this Franco, formerly so unquiet
and spreading her disturbing influences
beyond her frontiers, now laborious
and calm, always fruitful in generous
ideas, applying her genius to the most
varied marvels, and never allowing her
self to be enervated hy material enjoy
Observing! minds will have easily
divined that, notwithstanding the de
velopment of wealth, notwithstanding
the attraction towards general comfort,
the national fibre i< alwavs ready to
vibrate when a question of honor or of
country arises; hut this noble suscep
tibility cannot be a subject of appre
hension for the repose of the world.
Let those who have lived some short
time amongst us carry back with them
a just opinion of our country; let thorn
be convinced of the sentiments of
esteem and sympathy with which w<
entertain for foreign nations, and of
our sincere desire to livg.in peace with
them. [Cheers. |

giving an example of Uie dilicrenee of time
required in teaching a aicw pupil, tlie prefe

From the American Freedman (Rev, Lyman ;
M The peculiar characteristic ot tliis Series
lies in the fact that they aim to impart, :ih far !
as possible useful infornuitiom For this pur- |
pose they contain a series of articles on vari
ous subjects of science and history, graded to
the cajuu ity of dilfereut pupils, and so arranged
that when the live volumes have been care
fully read, the student, in addition to a know
ledge of reading, will have acquired a conside
rable knowledge in many departments of
study, such as will lay the foundation for me
complete instruction afterward.”
They are herefore peculiarly adapted to the
pressing needs and quick perceptsves ot the
colored children. Each book is profusely and
handsomely illustrated, and the illustrations
are all intended to render flic comprehension
oi the ; ading matter more easy. The folio iv

free to say to you, as I have uniformly said to
teachers, superintendents, and others, that,
all things considered, 1 regard them as the
best Scries before the public The leading
peculiar lent lire ol this Series was a happy in
spiration ol the author, and the execution of
the plan so well done as scarcely to admit of
improvement. Mr. Willson’s style of compo
sition in the lower numbers of the Series, and
something of his plan in the higher numbers,
have been imitated by some later writers of
>cliool readers with decided advantage to tlieir
works. lienee Mr. Willson lias not only made
a peerless Series of his own, but has elevated
the general standard of such works. When
ever my choice has not been constrained by
circumstances, I have always used this Series
both in the white and colored schools with
which I have beeu many way connected.
