We are still having frost in this section, though the fruit is growing and looking like it u not at all in jured. It is hoped that wc will have a bountiful erop of fruit this year, that hard timet mayiho forgotten a few days, if not long. Tho New York InJrpfinhnt is one of the most powerful and infinential papers in the country. It supported Mr. Cleveland four years ago. but is opposed to him thifl time. Ono by one tbe roses fall. It remains i for Geo. Wm. Curtis to go back Mr Cleveland. We visited tbe First Baptist chuteh last Sunday nigbt and beard tercstiog sermon from Rev. Mr. Pow ell. Ho has probably the neatest eburcb and one of the beat congrega tions in the city. Ilis choir is second to none. The Snoday previous this church raised ^0.20 mission money. The MxflflBNaXR is not Canaday’a qrg^ but it is Smith's organ, pub lished in the interest of the Negro and the Republican party. Wo take it as insnlt to ourself and our i Mr. A. V. Doekery to charge all he of merit as ooining from others. Wc have but little faith in Mr. Dock ery’s respect for aod opinion of the colored man. Some white men look upon the Negro as mere chattel and 'benevor be supports a candidate, be is charged with being bought. The Protectioniii pleads for a sidcratioD for the white repnbli in the State. Tbe editor of that paper certainly mast have lot by bis stay in England. While there he must hare read none but demo cratic papers from this Stale. It it said that in the Ust two State oon- veotioDS the whites were in the majority-that when republicans held tbe oflioe, white men got the lion’i share of places aod ^00 to the color ed man's fl.OO—that white men were consulted rbont every appointment and tbe colored man was consulted about nothing, but when a wlTite pnblican wanted something be simply said to his colored beoehmen, “I want yon to do this or that." These are tbe Mr. Oaoaday is remotest from. Tbeao are the things thinking col ored men want to see stopped. We do not object to white men voting the repnblkap ticket and taking- a band in all tho party management. We afaalt go along with the foreioMt to-day oonnty eonventioa in an offort to have a larger repreeentatioo of white i the eonncils of the party here. Fenukle Hemlaary for Zion.

CompltiDti is made of the danger- one barbed wire fence used on many lota in this city. Ledtee drosees are often torn by them and frequently one end of a wire gets loose and tbos becomes very dangcroas. especially to pedistriaos in the dark and to bare foot children. Ought they to be al-, lowed on public streets! Female Bachelors. We learn from tbe Star of Zim that .Miss Klien Dade and Miaa Kst^i Cartbey have passed the required ex amination after completing the eourae dy at Livingstone College and will on the I5tb of next month get their diplomas as A. B. There art Lx young men in tho class with them, but these ere the first ladies graduat- ith the degree of Bachelor of Arts in this State, that we have knowledge of. While some of young ladies have graduated from Northern colleges wc don't think ani have taken the full course in one o our Stale colleges. There is alwayi room at the top and if these ladies will retain the Miss with the A they will find plenty of work in amel iorating tho condition of our people. Of course when a bachelor inarrica he is no longer a member of tbe society. Livingstone College is fast taking the lead aiuong colored iastitutions. Consideration—Consideration. Let tho white IlcpublicaDs of this State have all the considcratioa pos sible. It may be, that the roa.son the .Stale has not been redeemed sooner there were so few white republicans to have consideration. What few there were have heretofore had all that was worth having—such as Con sul ti Iccds and abont every pladt in the .State that paid a thousand salary. Yet nineicen-twcntiei the colored voters voted the Ucpubli- can ticket. Wo bavo not the least objcctiomdu white men Icadiog and bossing the party os heretofore. They should be considered und have at least one representative on our State ticket, &e AH wc ask is a say so in tbe choice of these white men inas- inucb as we will do the voting -when it comes to that. (I yes, give tha white Republicans some considera tion if tho State is ever to be re deemed. The Convention. The republican county convention ill bo held in the conrt house to-day > select delegates to the District convention to be held at Maxton no tbe 22d of May and to tbe Stale con vention in Raleigh on the 2.3d. It is supposed the party wilt be ro- orgaoited at this time and the cleo- lioD of delegates is the only business of the convention, .-ts ti^rc seems to be harmony in tbe party it is hoped ill bo evidcooed to-day by a re spectable, peaceful and harmonious convention. Office has been taken from tho col ored man by the democratic party and I other dielnrbiog elements have been removed and wc know of no cause for contention and strife. If colored men are to control this con vention. let ua do it with that dignity and decorum that would do credit to any act of men. Let na leave off all points of order, and in a right way, •elcel six or twelve of the best repub licans in the county who will credit- ibly repreoeat too parly in tbe eon- vcutioni. Let os throw aside all feeling and know DO aeetioD or color, but such u will dq credit to tbemselvea tad the party. We bare a number of good men, white asd oolored, to selen from in all parti of tbe conutry.

A largo poblio Boetiag of woioeB woa held to Baltimore Wedoeaday, to pro test oguinit the lawoait standi, aod condemning those who voted against its repeal. Among the speakers was Mrs. 9. A Morgan, a iwheol teoeber at Ahlngton, Harford eonoty, who Olid that her daughter, fifteen years old, bad been insulted by a rich gentlemen's son, who told ber that she had no rights under the laws of Maryland. “I know if a colored man insults a white woman iu tbe least, a mob of whites will be after him. I am a Gbriatian. aod know the Bible teaches ‘Thou sbalt not kill,’but when I think of my little daughter being insnlted and these shameful laws and customs, mj blood boils, and I almost feel like killing somebody.’*—-/farre de Grace Rejinb- Three cor loads of colored'people, over 200 in number, passed tbrongh tbe city this week on their way to California. They came from all parts of tbe South, where they were eon- traoted for by Ctlifomia planters, who pay their fare and farnisb their food, and agree to pay the men 215 a month, tho women glO.and the chil dren who can make half wages, on their arrival. Labor is scarce in California aod tbe planters are at tbe mercy of the Chinese whom they do not want. Only colored people with families are wsntcd.—KaitM* Ci'ty (■Ifo.) Preu.
