TranscriptTHE colored men of the United States
hold two conventions of national im-
portance this fall. The first is called a
national convention and was held in St.
Louis yesterday. The second is called
a southern convention, although it is
thought that nearly all the states will
be represented ; it will meet in Colum-
bia, South Carolina, on the 18th of Oc-
tober. We trust that colored men will
soon feel so well assured in their civil
and political rights that there will be
no necessity for race conventions or or-
ganizations. The colored people are
themselves most interested in dropping
all organizations which mark them as a
peculiar race.
