We copy the above from the daily
Chronielt of this city, oflast Wednes
day. There is a question that every
thinking colored man of North Caroli
na should ask himself: Docs the
CkmticU express the sentiments of the
average white man of the South ?
Then if the white people of the South
are generally opposed to the Negro be
ing educated and so much so that they
prefer their own children being de
prived of it rather than allow the Nc-
gj) to get hi»i>hare, .‘inmclliing should
be dotae to bring about n bcttci feel
ing and sonic of tbese prejudice en
gendering, race hating journals .«lifluld
The new cdilori.al writer on the
Chronicle must hare different ideas
and stronger prejudices than former
writers. Perhaps his services as a
preacher of the gospel has caused him
to loso the idea that the colored man
is a brother, hence this writer has no
sympathy and love for the poor and
ignorant, if that ignorant cla&s be
black. He says, to bri^ about a
system of education for tlic black man
08 conteoiplstud in tbc Blair bill
might bring about results to be de
plored. Says wc had better not run
such risk. “Kdacation is power, and
the rapid clothing of them with it,
should be pondered.” What can a
sensible black man or God fearing
white man think of a profcMing Chris
tian who would make use of such Ion-
gnage? He rejoices in tbc belief that
it will not become u law. He would
have the colored man rcinaii\ in igiio-

democracy, thou hydra-licadcd mon
ster, it takes a preacher to give full
vent to your sentiments. It is said
that a preacher once played havoc
with Mr. Blaine by the use of three
R's. It is a good idea to muzzle
some political preachers.

we don’t suppose Prof. Dsvis betrd

' are not disposed to misreprosent them,
hut published tho infoiroation given
us concerning the trouble out there.
That there was trouble sufficient to
cause a strike, Prof. Davis admits.
Now the publie wants to know the
cause of the strike, and who is to
blame for it. Were the boys justified
in striking ? If so, who should bear
the blame? I( they are not justifia
ble, then ought not the leaders to be
discipli ed? Wc arc told there were
more than a hundred refrained from
recitations about a week.
They say they were not attempting
to defend Mr. Black who had been
expelled, but they were trying to sus
tain their own manhood which had
been insulted by the president of the
faculty. From' tbo information we
have to this writing, we bold that tbc
young men who refused to recite were
■ight, and acted like men until they
surrendered without satisfaction.
(gratitude for support and education
does not consist of slavish submission
to insults and assaults calculated to
nnman a man, and make him more
despised than a crouching esuino. Ed
ucation without manhood is not worth
having, and such manner of odacsiing
people will do us moro barm than
Biddle has done and is still doing a
great work, but it is not too late for
bad precedents to arise, and every one
should be nipped in the bud. If there
is a student in the College insulting
and disobedient, ho should bo sent
home; if there is a member of the
faculty unkind and inhuman and
otherwise unfitted, he should be asked
to step down and out.
BIDDLE I'KIYERSITV AGAIN.
Elsewhere will be seen a letter
from Prof. Davis, of Biddle, asking us
to oorrect misstairmenta in our last
week’s issue. In our p.npiT last week
we said: First, tbc students felt
they were mistrusted by the facuhv:
seoond, they were on a strike; third,
a dijRfwfty occurred between one of
the students and a professor in the
latter's rbom, and the student got
the best of the professor ; fourth, the
fscnlty expelled the student without
S trial; fifth, the feculty refused to
bear any statement from the boys;
and sixth, “some say. Dr. Johnson
says he will resign before he will
yield to niggers.”
These arc the prioeipa! points in
oni sUteaent last week, and we 'are
sorry Prof. Davis denies none of
these points in bia letter, except tbe
sixth. That was not sUted ts afact,
bat only mmor. We have been in*
THE TROUBLE IN STITEHVILLE.
It has been published that two
colored men. Dave and Sam Ramsour,
were put in tbc Statesville jail last
Saturday night for seriously cutting

things were heard and seen to justify

about the full sisc of the trouble.
Wc learn this same Lamphreebt had
been beat by a white man a day or

Mx. W. 0. SiilTn
Editor Marenyer—Dear Sir: Will
yon kindly make some oorrecUons in
year next isene in referenoo to eome
statemeoti made in yoar last Satur
day's issue anent Biddle University.
I regret tbst yon were misinformed
about the state Of affairs Yon were
correct in your statement that the
etndents were “on a strike." Bat
the ststement that Dr. Johnson said,
"He would not be oontrolled by a
set of nigger students,” is untrue
and baa no fonndstion in fact. Dr.
Johnston is a Christian and (neoessa-
rily) a gentleman, and the personal
favors be has done for onr race, aside
from his devotion to this inititntion,
entitles him to kindlier treatment than
to be misrcproiented. It is not trne
that a professor of this University
aasanlted a student in tbe class room,
bnt it is true that a professor who
has been personMly and all the while
the warmest snd firmest friend of a
■Indent, wss abused and battered np,
and that as that student had been be
fore tbe Faculty (not in person) for
other charges, this last one was
thought to be sufficient to expel him.
We have never denied tbc students a
right of appeal ix a rsopsii wav.
Yon will kindly set ns right, as
yon were no doubt misinformed about
the entire matter.
Please do so and oblige,
Gxo. E. Davis.
