: to in it is state it. in order to convince our its truth. WVac then shall we do to check this evil and put a stop to this open violation of a known law?7 We suggeat to the police of our town and the patrol~ throughout the district, district, to pay no regard to monthly passes authorizing authorizing negroes to pass and repass without stating distinctly the points to and from which they are permitted to go and return, but to treat negroes travelling with such tickets as though they had none at all. We would suggest further, the strict enforcement of the town ordinance, now of force, in our town; let all negroes found hiring their own time, be arrested and properly punished;I but. above all, let us see to it that the owners are indicted for the violation of the law. In this way, and in this way alone, can we check the evil, and rid our community of a set of colored rascals, whose villainy is only equalled by that of the white men who have seduced tem from a course of honesty and sobriety. If this cannot be done let the law be repealed ad let us either quietly submit to the wrongs which we now suffer, or take the necessary steps for our individual protection.
