We do not propose before passing on to the presidential elecition of 1852, to elaborate very extensively upon the black laws which were enacted by the non-slaveholding states. But it is suf- ficient to assert that no state or states surpassed Illinois and Indiana. In that direction, in 1850 or shortly after the enactment of the fugitive slave law by the Whig Party, the legislature of the later formulated a new state constitu- tion, and Its 13th article forbid Negroes from coming Into the state and white men from encouraging them to remain. Those two propositions were sub- mitted to the people to act upon separ- ately, and it seems almost impossible to realize that they were ratified by nearly ninety thousand majority. Ten years bedore Indiana adopted her new Mr. Bigger, the Whig can- didate for governor of that state, made himself very popular by proving that Martin Van Buren had favored Negro suffrage in New York. Congressmen Richard W. Thompson, Lane and Wal- lace and the other Whigs throughout the west gladly followed the leadership of Daniel Webster and Henry Clay, and they approved of the fugitive slave law without changing the dotting an i or the crossing of a t.- or Fraternal insurance. The Presidents and Vice-Presiden's of the various clubs of the cfty occupied seats on the platform. The Zion church in connection with Rev. P. A. Hubert, late of New York, and Bishop W. Clinton, have for several months liwn negotiating for pun hase of a Railroa.l lo- cated on Dearborn, near 39th street. It was their purpose to transform it into an institutional church but it passed into the hands of other parties and it will be used by the, A. M. K. de- nomination. Wednesday night. Feb. 28th. the Silver Leaf Charity Club, of which Mis. Anna Tucker is President, will give an entertainment at Douglas League hall. Dearborn street, for the benefit of the Old Folk's Home. Good n.'isiu and .1 good social time Is promised to ill who attend. Refreshments will bo erved. Admission ten rents. Cum.' and bring your friends aiul assist Uiis most worthy cause. The meeting, which was held at Bethel church Tuesday night under the auspices of the Women's FeJera- ion, was largely attended. It was ad- dressed by Mrs Ccrrinne Brown, the very popular and noted club woinun of this city. Mrs Round'tree, State Com- mander of the Maccabees; Mrs. President of the Order of Foresters; Dr. Bell Eskridge; Mrs. Edwards. Pres- ident of the Worthy Tribune; Mrs--. L. A. Davis. State organizer of the N. A. C. W., and Hon. Frank J. Wheaton, Grand organizer of the United Broth- erhood. Borman's orchestra furnished excellent music. The fight between the friends of Ald- erman C. J. Boyd and Fredrick A. Hart is becoming very bitter, which is ly to be deplored for both gentlemen are capable of representing the ward in the city council, and neither one has a life mortgage on the ward or up- on the position which is sought by both. The ward will be here, the veo- fl will be here and the city of Chica- go will stand for a few years longer if neither one is nominated. Alderman Boyd should feel proud of his record. But at the same time his friends mus-t not endeavor to blacken the character of Mr. Hart. For his reputatioa for fairness and honesty Is above reproach. A very Instructive meeting of the Mother's Council was held last Mon- day afternoon at the home of Mrs. S. J. Hart, 4841 Armour avenue. The lessons in Hope of the Fireside School, were continued after which the meet- ing was open to discussion. Mrs. Wbster and Cotton made extended remarks on how mothers should In- struct their girls in all matters pertain- ing to their future welfare; not to let them roam the streets by day or by night, but they must keep close to their daughter and make constant companions of themv and wield such a refining influence over them for good that there -will be no danger of them ever wandering from the path of. recti- tude. Miss Becca Hill favored the ladles with a fine piano solo, which r.as much enjoyed. The.Council will peet with Mrs. Hart Monday, Feb. 26, at '1 p. m. All ladles interested are cordially invited. The Second Ward Democratic Cluta gave its annual ball at Frriberg's hall. East 22d street, last Wednesday night, and it wat well attended and very suc- cessful in every respect iti president, Wm. E. Burns, favored us with an in- vitation, thus showing his broad-mind- edness The following leaders ot the party In that ward were present and joined in the festivities- Aiderraan C'ha.s. F.
