APPHOVED, March 25, 18G4. " Miioegenation"—Radical Democracy Ban Wild. Wo find in a late number of the Oregon Staterman copious extracts from a recent work on •" Miscegenation," written by some supporter of tho " Rndic.il Democratic" can didate for resident, John Calhoun Fremont. We make a few extracts from the quotations, for the purpose of showing how wrapped up in the negro are those miserable fanatics, and how they propose to " derate, the white race" by placing it on an equality with that of the negro ! The author defines the word " Miscegena tion" as follows : Its derivation is from the Lat in mitcere to mix, andgrnttt race. It is intend ed to mean, therefore, n mixture of two or more races. From this the words miscegcn, the offspring of persons of different races; misccrjenate, the verb, to mingle the different races, and miscegenctir, tho adjective form, follow. Another word is likewise coined, ex pressly to indicate the author's meaning— malalcukation —from two Greek words, signi fying a mixture of the white and black laces. This word is also varied to supply tho differ ent parts of speech, and will be readily under stood without further explanation, by the con nection in which it appears. The physiological equality of the white and black races is thus stated : " The teachings of physiology as well as the inspirations of Christianity settle the question that all the tribes which inhabit the earth were o iginally derived from one type. Whether or not the story of Adam and Ere is accepted by all as absolutely true, [italics our's] the fact which i: represimts has been demonstrated by history, and the latest discov eries bearing upon the origin of the human fami ly. The form of the skull varies in different parts of the earth, from the prognathous to the elliptical, while the color is of all shades be tween ebony and white. There are structural peculiarities, also, from the short, squat Es quimaux to the tall, lithe Patngoniau. lJut despite skull, color, structure, the race is es sentially one, and the differences depend upon climate and circumstances." v The author then cornea to the point—the' " rich blending of blood." "Ifany fact is well established in history, it is that the miscegenetic or mixed races are superior, mentally, physically and morally, to to those pure or unmixed. * * # The great wars of modern Europe, including the giant contlicts of Napoleon, have had the effect of intermixing the treasures of ditlVrent blooils and coinplexious. Europe is becoming yearly more composite—at least s:> far as the limit of iis race will admit, and consequent/y more civ ilized. Thoroughly miscegenetic it cannot lie until thu Mongolian and African are brought to its doors. It will he our tioh/e j>rerogatire to set the example of this rich blending oj\ blood." He asserts that in the true order of things men love and arc controlled by "opposites." That the straight haired man loves the kinky head, the tall the short, the blond the black, etc., nnd cites Horace Greeley as nn example: " Such of our readers as have attended anti slavery meetings will have observed tho large proportion of blondes iu tho assemblage This peculiarity is also noticeable in the leading speakers and agitators in the great anti-slavery part}'. Horace Greeley of the New York Tribune, known for his devotion to the negro race, is as opposite as n man can possibly be to the people to whom ho has shown his at tachment by long and earnest labor for their welfare. In color, complexion, structure, mental habits, peculiarities of all kinds, they are far apart as the poles. The same is true of Wendell Phillips. He, too, is the very op posite of the negro. His complexion is red ish and sanguine; his hair in younger days was light; he is. in short, one of the sharpest possible contrasts to the pure negro. Theo dore Tiltou, the eloquent young editor of the Independent, who has already achieved im mortality by advocating enthusiastically the doctrino of miscegenation, is n very pure specimen of the blonde, nnd when a young man was noted for his angelic type of feature —we mean angelic alter the type of Raphael, which is not the true angelic feature, because the perfect type of the future will be that of the blended races, with the sunny hues of the South tinging the colorless complexion of the icv North. But it is needless further to par ticularize. The sympathy Greeley, Phillips and Tiltou feel for the negro is the love which the blonde bears for the black ; it is a love of race, a sympathy stronger to them than the love they bear to woman. It is founded upon natural law. We love our opposite*. It is in the nature of things that we should do so, and where nature his free course, men like tlior* we have indicated, whether anti slavery or pro-slavery, conservative or radical, demo ciatic or republican, will marry nnd be given in marriage to the most perfect specimens of the colored race. Nor is it alone true that the blonde love the black. The black alto love their opposites.*' The author then proceeds to give thu Irish " Jessie," probably because they nre " for nenst" Fremont, and for the Government. " Notwithstanding thu apparaut antagonism which exists between the Irish and negroes On this continent, there are tlie strongest reasons I for believing that the first movement towards ' a melaleuketic union will take plack between these two races. Indeed, in very many in stances it has already occurred. Wherever there is a poor community of Irish in the North, they naturally herd with the poor ne groes, and as the result of the various acts of kindness which only the poor pay to one an other, families become intermingled, and con nubial relations are formed between the black men and white Irish women. These matri monial arrangements have generally been pleasant to both parties, and were it not for the unhappy prejudice which exists, sucji un ions would be very much more frequent. The white Irishwoman loves the black man, and in the old country it has been stated that the negro is sure of the handsomest white females. [italics our own throughout.] The very bit terness of feeling which on the part of the Irish in the large cities towards the ne groes is nn evidence that they will be the first |to mingle. The disturbances created when : brought into contact present the same phenom | ena as the attempted fusion of kindred elec j tricities—repugnance and flying apart are , followed b) the closest of all unions. The 'fusion, whenever it talccs place, will be of in \ finite service to the Irish. They are a more brutal rare, and lower in civilization than the ; negro. The latter is mild, spiritual. [?] fond | of melody and song, warm in his attachments, I fervid in his passions, but inoffensive and kind, . and only apparently brutal when his warmest emotions arc brought into play in his love for the white woman. The Irish are coarse grained, revengeful, unintellectual, with very few of the finer instiuc:s of humanity. Of j course we speak of the laboring Irish as the} appear in this country. The Milesian is a child of the sun. He was originally of a col ored race, and has all the fervid emotional power which belongs to n people born in or near the tropics, llis long habitation North, however, and the ignorance in which he has been kept by misgovcrnment, have sunk the Iris\man Mow the level of the most degraded negro. Take an equal number of negroes and Irish from among the lowest communities of the city of New York, and the former will be found far snp*rior to the latter in cleanliness, | education, moral feelings, beauty of form and I feature, and natural sense. * * * The blending of thu Irish in this country with the negro will be n positive gain to the former. Willi education and nn intermingling with thu superior blacks. the Irish inay be fitted up to something like the dignity of their ances tors, the Milesians." The author takc3 great' care, however, to laud the German race as being of "composite origin," nnd therefore superior to many Euro pean nations. Ofcourse they are Fremonters. But here is a nut for " Democrats" to crack : '•Nor are the Southern women indifferent to the strange magnetism of association with a tropical race. Far otherwise. The mothers and daughters of the aristocratic slaveholders are thrilled with a strange delight by daily contact with their dusky male servitors. These relations, though intimate and full of a rare charm to the passionate nnd impressible daughter of the South, seldom, if ever, pass beyond the bounds of propriety, atonic love, a union of sympathies, emotions and thoughts, may be the sweetness and grace ofa woman's life, and without any formal human tie, may make her thoroughly happy. " And this is the secret of the strange in fatuation of the Southern women with the hideous barbarism of sin very. Freedom, she knows, would separate her fo-ever from the colored man, while slavery retains liim by her side. It is idle for the Southern people to deny it; she loves tho black man, and the raiment she clothes herself with is to please liiin. Wlmt are the distinguishing character istics of a Southern woman's attire? Why bright colors—a tendency to yellow and pale red. and those striking gold ornaments which make such a charming contrast to a dark skin, but are so out of place in the toilet of a blonde. Yes—the Southern beanty, as she parades her bright dresses and inappropriate colors in our Northern cities and watering places, proclaims by every massive ornament in her shining hait, i nd by every yellow shade in the wavy folds of her dress, • I love tho black man.' " Nor in view of the powerful Attraction of (lie two races in this freney of love in the Southern white women for the negro altogeth er inexplicable. The family is isolated on the plantations. The while young man is away at college, traveling in Europe, or prac tlbing at his profession in the large cities, while the white girl, who matures early, is At home, surrounded l»y the brightest and most intelligent of the young colored men on the estate. Passionate, full of sensibility, with out the cold prudence of her Northern sister, who can wonder at the wild dreams of love which fire the hearts and all the imagination of the impressible Southern maiden. The awkward, rude girl of yesterday, under the influence of the uia>ter pission of our common humanity, is changed in a day to the full measure of a glorious womanhood i •• It is safe to say that the first heart expe rience of nearly every Southern maiden—the flowering sweetness and grace of her young life, is associated with the sad dream of some bonded lover. He may have been the waiter, or co ichman, or the bright yellow lad who as sisted the oyerseer; but to her he is a hero, blazing with nil the splendors of imperial manhood. She treasuraa the looks from those dark eyea which make her pulses bound; every spot of earth wher» he had waited her coming is, to her, holy groiind." Look at this Radical Democrats ideal of female loveliness: " in painting, theartisthns never portrayed so perfect a woman to the fancy, as when choosing his subject from some other than the Caucasian race, he has been able to introduce the marvelous charm of the combinations of colors in her face. Not alone to the white face, even when tinted with mantling blood, is the facination of female loveliness imputed. The autbnr may state—and the same experi ence can be witnessed to by thousands—that the most beautiful girl in form, feature, and every attribute of feminiue loveliness he ever saw, was a mulatto. By crossing and improv ment of different varieties, the strawberry cr other garden fruit, is brought nearest to per fection in sweetness, size and fruitfulness. This was a ripe and complete womnu, possess ing the best elements of two sources of parent age. Her complexion was warm and dark, and golden with the beat of tropical Buns, lips full and luscious, cheeks perfectly mould ed, and tinged with deep crimson, hair curl ing and— ' Whose glossy black To shame might bring The plumage of the raven's wing.' " Practical miscegenation is thus illustrated: The war is doing good in this, thit our sol diers are mingling with the blacks now, as the whites of the South have mingled with them. But the association is ennobling, because the black is now free, and may become, by iifflus try and self improvement, the equal of the white intellectually, as he is now physically and morally. The blacks that move with our regiments are beloved by theircomrades; they perform the most valuable duties requiring courage and sagacity—with greater success than the white soldiers. There is a darker side to this pic'ure, which should be ita biightest. The loves that have sprung up between the freed women and our soldiers havti only been hiuted at in public, though known by those who have followed our amties into slave regions to be universal and inevitable. Thp vacuum in ihe soldier's nature diawsiuto itself the strength and the womanly fullness of the ripe and beautiful dark-skinr.ed girl. The yearning instinct is satisfied nt last, de spite long set led prejudices and blasphemous theories. * * * The aristocrat of the South lias, fot a century, gained strength by the as sociatiou with his slaves. Then follows the Radical Democratic " pint* form" for the prosecution of the war. The author declares that the wnr should be prosecuted not only for the " physical rights" of the negro, but thnt it should bo— " A war, if you please, of amalgamation, so called—a war looking, as its final fruit, to a blending of the white and black. All at* tempts to end it wilhout a recognition of the poliiieal, civil, and social l ights of the negro will only lead to still bloodier battles in the future. Let us bo wise and look to the end. I.ct the war go on until every black man and every black woman is free. Let it po on un* til the piiile of ca?!e is done away. Let it go on until church, and stite, and soliety recog nize not only the propriety but the necessity of the fusion of the white and black—in short until the great truth shall be declared in out public documents and announced in the met' sages of our Presidents, that it is desirable the white man should marrg the black woman and the white woman the black man—that the race should become mela/euketic be/ore it becomes misecgcnetic. * * * The white race which settles in New England will be unable to maintain its vitality as a blonde people. • * Theg need the intermingling of the rich tropi* cal blood of the negro, to give warmth and full ness to their natures. * * * The ideal of type of man of the future will blend in him* self all that is passionate and emotional in the darker races. He will also be composite as regards color. The purest miscegen will he brmvn, with reddish cheeks, curly and wavy hairT d irk eyes, and a fullness and suppleness of form not now dreamed of by any individual people." We have neither space nor inclination Id qnote further from this infamocs publication Its anthor seems to unite with an inordinate love of " nigger," a corresponding hatred ot the white race. Especial'y does he appear t® hold the " coarse-grained, revengeful, unin tcllectual Irish in abhorrence—placing them " below the lerelof the most degrhded negro" / The author has carefully concealed his name. He is probably a negio, who has become en amored of some " passionate and impressible daughter of the South," atod desires public opinion to sanction miscegenhtion in his behalf. The sentence which refers to the " loves" that have sprung up between the " freed wo men" and our soldiers, is very suggestive; " The yearning instinct is satisfied at last, de spite long settled prejudices and blasphemous theories." The same " yearning instinct" is indicated by the thousands of Mien women who throng every city, but are they, upon the same logic, to become the wives of honest men! Thnt the Authnf in a aenraal 41 CUM," i« indicate by bis fervid lnngnage, and If he ie indeed a white " individual" we are promt to believo that he is tied to the tpron atrlnga of some "charming alive girl" whoae ••womanly fullneas," "ripe and beautifbl akin," •' lucious iheeWperfeetly mould' ed," " hair curling" whoae •• healthy. loving and warm blcodt d nature," makes bin exceed* NO. 32.
