We have a short- article in this
issue npon the above snhieot from
Mias Williams, of Fayetteville. She
says it is an old snbjeot. We say if
it is old it wilt be ever new also.
There is one pUdn, simple fret,
unless we ednoate onr children, onr

Onr race will oontiDue to make

our children in letters and in morala
our race will continue in dissipation
and disgrace, and we will continue
to have tbousands unable to own
Onr schools are progressing finely
most localities. What we need
now is moral education. Let the
lovers of the Negro race turn their
attention more specially in this
direction. It is uot only eduo^tion,
book-trmning and weiuth that has
held np the Saxon'race, bat the
jealon^ cf their morab. Tb^ have
watch^ and gnarded their morals
more careflilly than their money and

The anti-Boni^n element of the
South are taking the right coarse
in regard to ednoation. They are
everywhere declaring in &vor of a
thorough and systematic education
of the msiwfiii withont r^ard to ool-
And it is worthy of note, too.
Shat in Yirginia and elsewhere,
where liberalism has triumphed,
these ideas and principles have been
carried into execution, insofiu’ as
the means at hand and available
Inmost instances, however, the
Southern States claim not to be
able yet to mainttin liberal i^toms
of edooation, snob as we have in the
North, and there li a very general
demand for goveiAnental aid.
While it is doubtless true that these
States have not yet done all tb^
are able to do, nr what they ought
to do, yet there is some force in
their daim for the aid of the feder
al government in establisbing and
snpporting free public schools.
The South, while rich in soil and
natural resources, is yet poor by
reason of the fact that her resour
ces are not yet developed ; her soil
is not cultivated as it should be,
and her social and bosineso systems
have not yet been thoroughly ad
justed to the exigencies and needs
of the regime. It will require time
todothia Immignttioo and capi-.
tal are also wanted. Until' matters
are so adjiutod that there shall be a
Ml and hearty support of popular
ednoatioD by ihe States themselves,
the general government should take-
such stops as will secure to the chil
dren of the late slave States an op
portunity to acquire a common
school education. To do less than
this, is to neglect a plain and im
perative duty. There are measuree
before Congress now to secure this
result, and the members of that
body could do nothing more to their
credit than to take them up and
make laws of them.
In the meantime the polored vo
ters of the South should join hearti
ly with every movement that
^colatod to fbrther the interests
of general education, regardless of
the question as to who are the orig
inators of them. They are poor,
and wbereever education is restrict
ed it is the children of the poor who
suffer. They can do much by their
votas'to promote the oaiue of edu
Edastis Yew OMMrtH.
If wfi would have our children
oompare with white obildren, we
must educate them. Add when we
layedurato them, we mean give
than a thorough education. Many

The outlook for. the negro just
now is most promising, view it as
we may, he is a powerM element
and an indispensable factor in this
nation. Gradually, aye rapidly
oonceeaions are being made to him
in bis civil as well ae political rights.
His intelligence and achievements
are battering down that impregna
ble barrier, prejudice, to an alarm
ing extent But yesterday
chanced to drop into a colored pfay.

treatment at his bands seven whites
and three otiored persons, while
one white person was being treated
at the time. This is but one in

and similar dnoonstratioBs are be
