As to ihe South, much xnisapprehehsfo
extBis in the public mind in reference to
what has beee done there educationalist
The South, before the war, in proportion tt
the white population, taklog .man for man;
sustained a larger number of colleges,' with
mora professprs, more students,' inV
greater annual cost than waa done in any
section of the ; Union: The ' same thing is
true of academies and 'private schools. II
the census of 1880, as taksn by the U sited
States authorities, be correct, the. white
population of the Northern States in thai
year was nearly nineteen millions, and of
the Southern only a little over eight mtlf
lions. At that tine, the North had 205 col
leges, the South 262; the North 1,407 pro
feasors, the South 1,188; the North had 29,
tm students, the South 27,055; the worti
paid for these colleges f 1,514,293, the 8out!
i .The high schools of the South prio
to the-war were better than those
the Norths In all New England
Ao not believe you oould have found
schools to equal Hornera'or, ,Bu?gi

Greensboro, Mar f reesboro - and Ra
leigh for girls.' We have reason for
saying that the University of Virf
gima was then . superior .to ; either
Yale or. Harvaid.i whilst. the colleges
generally , were qute j equal to the
best in the North. Thirtyddd' years

At 4 Seaboard, on Saturday, a, white

difficulty about . rent, which resulted, in a
fight; the white man getting the worst of it;
being considerably bruised about the bead.
On Saturday two negro mfin, Junius
Harris and Jim Manly living near here
came to town and -imbibed a little too
freely, when they got as far as the fair
grounds on their wayhome; they1 began to
wrestle with each other in a , playful , way
and accidentally broke a bottle of whiskey. '
This misfortune brought on a fight and it
is reported that another negro whose name

about six inches long and two inches deep. .
