HON. FREDERICK DOUGLASS ! What He Saw In Europe. His Experiences While Abroad. Hon. Frederick Douglass, who has been abroad for eleven months, has returned to his home in Washington. When asked about the report that the Rev. Mr. Evans, a passenger on the City of Rome with Mr. Doug- j lass, had declined to take part in an ' entertainment on shipboard at which Mr. Douglass presided, he said: "If Mr. Evans or any one else | kept away from the little entertaintainment we had because I was selected to preside, it did not reach my ear. I did not meet Mr. Evans to know him. Ihe entertainment was a very informal affair. There were little music and recitations and I made a speech of about ten minutes' length. It was very well received and some of the passengers told me it was the most enjovable part of the entertainment. I don't know whether they meant it, or simply wished to tickle my vanity, but, at any rate, they were successful, for i was very much gratified at their praise. lam sorry if...

CONTINUED FROM IBT. PAGE. tor, that if "Adam" would take this adrioe in the same spirit in which it is offered, he wonid come out from following it, thoroughly penitent for the insult to man and impiety towards God of which he was guilty, (let us hope unintentionally) in tbat truly inhuman letter; and, compelled like St. Peter to acknowledge "that God is no respecter of persons," he would like the same apostle, divest himself at once of his cruel prejudice of race, and resolve that henceforth, he too would "call no man uncommon or unclean." C. S. Percival. Waterloo, lowa. Many a passionate child rules the household. The little baby on its mother's knee goes into passion because its dinner is withheld from him, or some toy denied him. He shrieks and strikes his mother, and mother says: "Poor little boy, he has such a passionate nature; he can't be crossed," and yields to him. She ought to spank him—spapk him hard —for being in a passion, and give him nothing until his passion has coo...

Our learned contemporary the "Church Year" of Florida is continually, in nearly every issue throwing impediments in the way and hindering the work of the Church among Afro-Americans. The present policy ot our contemporary, in our judgment, regarding colored work, will result only in alienating from our fold those of our people who would otherwise be disposed lowards it. It is at once evident from the tone of its editorials that upon the color-question it is at sea, choked and suffocated with a dense fog. It is not necessary to change the formularities and laws of our Church in order to successfully operate among...
