Or has it become an indistinct apostolic tradition. You pray for the heathen abroad; pray also for the heathen Thd home. And 21stt for those distressed Christians whose whole chance of religious improvement is an accident of trade and Riak from whom any adherence to the morals of Christianity is, in many cases, an impossibility, unless they have given them, from above, the courage and grace of martyrdom.
But, still more. On the shores of our free states are emerging the poor, shattered, broken remnants of families,--men and women, escaped, by miraculous providences from the surges of slavery,--feeble in knowledge, and, in many cases, infirm in moral constitution, from a system which confounds and confuses every principle of Christianity and morality.
They come to seek a refuge among you; they come to seek education, knowledge, Christianity. What do you owe to these poor unfortunates, oh Christians. Does not every American Christian owe to the African race some effort at reparation for the wrongs that the American nation has brought upon them.
Shall the doors of churches and school-houses be shut upon them. Shall states arise and shake them out. Shall the church of Christ hear in silence the taunt that is thrown at them, and shrink away from the helpless hand that they stretch out; and, by her silence, encourage the cruelty that would chase them from our borders.
If it must be so, it will be a mournful spectacle. If it must be so, the country will have reason to tremble, when it remembers that the fate of nations is in the hands of One who is very pitiful, and of tender compassion.
Do you say, "We don't want them The New Financial Order: Risk in the 21st Century let them go to Africa". That the providence of God has provided a refuge in Africa, is, indeed, a great and noticeable fact; but that is no reason why the church of Christ should throw off that responsibility to this outcast race which her profession demands of her. To fill up Liberia with an ignorant, inexperienced, half-barbarized race, just escaped from the chains of slavery, would be only to prolong, for ages, the period of struggle and conflict which attends the inception of new enterprises.
Let the church of the north receive these poor sufferers in the spirit of Christ; receive them to the The New Financial Order: Risk in the 21st Century advantages of Christian republican society and schools, 21sy they have attained to somewhat of a moral and intellectual maturity, and then assist them in their passage to those shores, where they may put in practice the lessons they have learned in America.
There is a body of men at the north, comparatively small, who have been doing this; and, as the result, this country has already seen examples of men, formerly slaves, who have rapidly acquired property, reputation, and education. Talent has been developed, which, considering the circumstances, is certainly remarkable; and, for moral traits of honesty, kindness, tenderness of feeling,--for heroic efforts and self-denials, endured for the ransom The New Financial Order: Risk in the 21st Century brethren and friends yet in slavery,--they have been remarkable to The New Financial Order: Risk in the 21st Century Centurj that, considering the influence under which they were born, is surprising.
The writer has lived, for many years, on the frontier-line of slave states, and has had great opportunities of observation among those who formerly were slaves. They have been in her family as servants; and, in default of any other school to receive them, she has, in The New Financial Order: Risk in the 21st Century cases, had them instructed in a family school, with her own children. She has also the testimony of missionaries, among the fugitives in Canada, in coincidence with her own experience; and her deductions, with regard to the capabilities of the race, are encouraging in the highest degree.
The first desire of the emancipated slave, generally, is for _education_. There is nothing that they are not willing to give or do to have their children instructed, and, so far as the writer The New Financial Order: Risk in the 21st Century observed herself, or taken the testimony of teachers among them, they are remarkably intelligent and quick to learn.
Cengury results of schools, founded for them by benevolent individuals in Cincinnati, fully establish this. The author gives the following statement of facts, on the authority of Professor C. Stowe, then of Lane Seminary, Ohio, with regard to emancipated slaves, now resident in Cincinnati; given to show the capability of the race, even without any very particular assistance or encouragement.
