NEGRO TREATMENT IN AMERICA. The negro difficulty in America is- as irrepressi- ble" under the newrégime as under the old The black man, whether enslaved or free, seems to be the destined source of disquiet to his white brother. What increases the difficulty of the federal Go- vernment in dealing with him is the small amount of aid the negroes render in protecting themselves. Whether, it be owing to slavery or to natural tem- perament, they are singularly wanting in resent- ment. They submit to the most brutal injuries with a passiveness that is pitiable. Much of their security must always depend on their own courage and determination The negroes, however, are not only wanting in these qualities themselves, but they are living in the midst of enemies unusually fierce, aggressive, and lawless, and in a country the extent and natural features of which render the work of internal police unusually difficult. If they were surrounded by sympathetic, considerate friends ready to help them across the threshold of civilization, their progress would doubtless be very rapid; but they are not, and the danger is that if they are met on their first entrance on a life of freedom by kicks, cuffs, robbery, and ill-usage from all around them, they will sink into apathy, and either remain degraded and barbarous, or vanish off the earth, as the Indians have done.
