For the tlrst time the colored people were about to cast a vote, which was an important era, and second in importance was the manner in which they ?*ert It. 'l hey were now on trial, and the eyes of thentire nation are upon them. Their friends bad, up to Tuesday morning, their doubts as wliether they would vote right, and their enemies, with the President, had predicted that the day the colored men attempted to vote something would fly. Well, they had voted, as to how well Mr Addison could tell, [laughter and applause ] As the news on Tuesdav morning was carried through the land their enemies looked downciut. Their neighbors in CJeoigetown had made themselves a name. They should not fritter away their power, but act for themselves and examine everything. Act with care, and work for friends not enemies. He went to the Capitol now, (forcolared men can go there.) and saw colored men in the galleries sitting sleeping; and he would ask them to tell the blaek men, [Mr. Brown? ' White men too,"] white men can take care of themselves? to have respect for themselves Fix up yourselves, go with your best clothes, wash yonr lace, comb your bead, and go in t?oldly. take yonr seat beside Andrew Johnson if he is in the gallery. The manner in wuich the colored people lost their votes In Pennsylvania was because their enemies invited the Legislature to Philadelphia, and took thctn to !he lower portion of the city, where the lowest ol the colored people resided Tbey saw. lud went back and took the vote away. Wowhe would say don't let this happen here. Fix yourselves up, and put the best loot forward. Kev. 1). W.

Tbey should tee radical, end in order to do so should take a black man with one hand and a white man in the other, and when they were ogether then it could be seen whether one was superior to the other. Kev. Mr. Foy followed, briefly speaking on be duties of the raoe, saying that he hoped never to hear of a black man voting for a copperhead.
