of merit as ooining from others.
Wc have but little faith in Mr. Dock

upon the Negro as mere chattel and
'benevor be supports a candidate, be

The Protectioniii pleads for a
sidcratioD for the white repnbli
in the State. Tbe editor of that

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

We learn from tbe Star of Zim
that .Miss Klien Dade and Miaa Kst^i
Cartbey have passed the required ex

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

Of course when a bachelor inarrica he
is no longer a member of tbe society.
