Run Over sad Killed.
The Wilmington Review, of thq^
8th inst, says: A couplo of colored
boys, aged 16 and 20 years, respieot-
ively, wore run over and killed by
the Western bound po-ssenger train

on Wixluesdny night at Edwards'
Crossing, between Rosittdalo and
Jarvis. Tbe boys wore in the em
ploy of Mr. J. A. Edwards and loft
bis house as the train blew for a
wood station just below it The
train stopped to wood up and pro
ceeded on its journey. Yesterday
morning the Eastern bound passen
ger train was flagged down at Ed
wards’ Crossing so that the mangled
bodies of the boys could be removed
from the track! T^oir legs and
arms were cot OS' by tbe train, and
their bodies so horribly mangled
that all who saw them were made
sick by tbe terrible sight. The sup
position is that the boys wont oot.
to see tbe train pass on Wednesday
night-.ADd sat or laid down on the
track while waiting for the train to
leave tbe wood station, and fell
asleep. They were donbtless fn-
•tanUy killed by tbe train which

Our young men are doing well,
bat we think they might in some
instances do better. The young
men of Charlotte have tho credit of
running the most Blisceeaflil colored
boarding bouse in the State, some of
tbe beet markets in the city, one of
the best grocery stores, all the bar^
her shops, s newspaper, and have
some fine mechanics. Our best
teachers and preachers are among
our young men. Yet we want to
eeo tho masses looking higher. One-
third tbe money they waste woald
buy books and pay s'tcacher for
night school, and one-half the time
they spend in frolicing if spent in
studying would be as bre^ cast
upon the waters to be gathered af
ter many days, to make them hap
py in thoir old age. Now as the
nights are getting longer let our
^ung men look to their interests.

Our Yr- ISea
Cbarlolto has a sot of as good
looking young colored men as any
town of its sizo in-tbe State. They
are as honest, as industrious and
dress as well as any, and we believe
are as well behaved young men as
can be found. Yet there is some
thing dreadlully needed about those
young men generally. We speak of
them snd to them in this way bo-
esuee wo love them and are so forci
bly impressed with tbe necessity of
improvement in this direction.
The greatest failing we see in tbe
young men of our city is they have
too great love for pleasure and too
little for learning. The greatest
need about our young men ie men
tal improvemeot. This they can
not do without forsaking tbeir pleas
ures, for two grand reasons; First
with tbeir minds givgn to sporithey
are in no condition to study, and
secondly, their sporting takes sU
tbeir money snd they have none left
to bay books and pay a teacher.
We have a nomber of intelligent
yoong men, but not enough of them.
We want more of tbe higher order
and fewer ofthe boot-black and ser
vant class. We went more young
men who will soom to do little dime
chores on tbe streets. Young men,
wbo tbeir stsnding snd general
oonduct will force all men to respect
them as gentlemen. We want more
young men wbo will not be oontent
to oocapy tbe poatUon of their fitth-
era. We want more yoong men
wbo will select a good trade, an bon-
est avoestion in which be can look
npoo himself ss tbe eqaal of any
