The appointment of I-cwis J. l'ursons to
lie United States Dintrict Attorney for the
Middle and Northern District of Alabama
has arpucied the leailiiiK colored men of

proof that tho President is determined to

Tub JliitmiilU l'aiuilian, iu a klydly-iu-tentioued

Wk assume as a matter of courco that
the people will keep in view the proposed
benellts for the Johnstown suHiTers and
iniike it a point to attend them, or nt least
to buy tickets for them, so as to swell tho

Tub dedication of the now buildings of
tho Now Orleans University on Friday

Vie Picayune wo learn that this University
was chartered in March, 1873, with Dr.
llartzell as tho principal orgnniuir and
(ion. Cyrus liussey and others on tho
fust Board of Trustees. In 1884 tho pres
ent magnificent sito was purchased, and
although tho building was only recently
completed tho educational work has been
going on without Interruption, rind there
aro about 200 pupils, cprnlly divided be
tween the sexes. Tlio now edillco has a
capacity for 500 pupils, and it is expected
that there -will bo that many students bo
foro tho Institution is much older. Besides

for tho faculty, library,recitatlon rootns.otc,
there nreslcepingaparlincnts for loOpupils.
Tho courses include classical, college pre
paratory, normal, FngliBh, kindergarteu,
Iliblo, music, business, etc. There aro,
also, a school of printing and a night
school in connection with tbo University.
In tho rear of the college grounds is a
special building for industrial school pur
poses, where boys aro taught woodwork,
housekeeping, cooking nnd othor useful
arts. It will bo seen that it is Intended
thnt tbo Institution ahull wield a great In

the orator of tho occasion, Mr. Doylo, In
his early youth, "showed that quality of

Thursday morning arrived In the city of
Memphis. Wo wore met at tlio Union
depot by a delegation of prominent citi

body Hotel, whero an elegant breakfast
Wo have nevor been tho recipients of
more unhoundod hospitality than charac
terised tho generous welcome accorded ns
by the cili7.cns of Memphis. The keys of
tho city woro placed nt our disposal, and
tho citizens not only thoso on tho com
mittee, but all we met seemod to feel it
their duty to make us have a delightful
time. To say thnt tho hospitality was un
bounded does not fullv express it. Favors
nnd hearty wolcomcs woro showered upon
us, aim every person In our party was cap
tured most c'iTcctuallv, and full in love with
Memphis nnd her people. Ihol'enbody
is one of tho most famous hotels in tho
South, elegantly appointed, furnished in
tho grandest stylo und possessing all the
features which civo cointort and nleasuro.
The breakfast served to tho Georgia edit
ors was simply maiMiilleent.
Aiempiiis is a lovely una progressive city
and there are numbers of points of special
interest. After breakfast we viowed a
number of these attractions. Thero are
several beautiful parks; tho streets lire
broad, lined with treea and luaL'tiitlcenl
rosiilcnccs. Tho ciistoni-hotiso and tho
chamber of commerce are among tho most
sulmtantial and Impoiinu buildings.
At 10 o'clock tho comniitteo of recep
tion escorted ns ulmard ono of the elegant
river boats, aud wo enloved a delightful
skim alMiut tbo harbor on the bosom of the
"father of wuters." We were enabled to
giiiu a lino view of the city, the wharves,
public building, railroad connections and
ahipping houses, and this excursion ou
tho river was one ol tho most cnjoyuulo
events of tho entire trip.
On discmbniking (rom tho boat wo again
entered carriages ami enjoyed a drive alonu
somo of tho most prominent and beautiful
streets, and at 12 o'clock returned to tho
Cotton l.xcliunge buildint;, where wo were
entertained in a handsome manner by the
ijtcmocrso! lliu J'.xcliangc. llus was fol
lowed by a siiierb dinner nt tho l'eabody,
and in tho afternoon we enjoyed a trip ou
tho dummy lino to Montgomery Park, a
beautiful and attractive place. At the
Jockev Hub bouse a sutnpi nous collation
was spread and fully enjoyed by our party.
Wo were placed under Sieeial obligation
to Col. lmvid A. Frayser, editor ol the
Memphis PuUie lsltjrr, and to Mr. Sid
Gray. They vxtende.l us many courtesies
and added greatly to tbo pleasures of our
stay in Memphis. Col. Fruvser is ono of
the most prominent und itest equipped'
young journalists of Tennessee.
From tho time we reached Memphis un
til our speciul train steamed toward Kau
sas City wo were tho recipients of over
whelming hoHintalitv. Memphis carries
her heart in tier band, and our stay was
ono continuous round of pleasure. Mem
phis captured tho G corgi u press, and ull
wo may say in hor praise is far less than
she deserv es.

From II, Semiirt ( Vik.) llersl.l.
A Major Kdgington delivered tho ora

sjieech was made at tho National Ceme

This is hypocrisy, pure and simple. What

they worked and striven for years past to

uegro vote is no longer available (or their

Tho question of education is becoming
tnoro thoroughly agitated every year, and
tho enlightenment of tbo more ignorant ro-'
ceives its duo share of thought. With
twenty-four years of freedom, with tho
ansistanco of'laws'lo aid in tho inculcation
of a higher literary training, tlio negro lias
not progressed much; bnt tho constant
effort which has boon inudo (or bis ad
vancement is nut without somo effect, and
it is to bo noticed that ns ho advances, he
becomes moro rapidly elevated to tho
placo which a long and untiring effort
alone can attain. Laws can not ruiso the
ignorant to the liigliU which have been
reached by white men after generations of
close application and diligent study. They
must luiikn an cltort themselves, ami the
struggle will lie one of aliuoat superhuman

Caucasians with unhoundod ambition
and incentives to struggle, which liave
been increased with each succeeding gen
eration, bnvo applied thoinselves with
might snd main to reach a goal that only
displavs a broader Held when it is at
tained. Tho negro, in most instances, has
pursued a olicy opposed to success in
mental culture, and although many of tho
race have been educated lo a standard
that Is surpassed only by tho most intel
lectual of the whites, their education has
given rise to but little in the line of higher
pursuits. That they nro more intelligent

THH WEATHER CROP BULLETIN.
Tbo Condition of Crops and the Effect
of the Weather on Them.
Washington, June 0. Tho Signal
Office furnishes the following weather
crop bulletin for the week ended Saturday,
The cool weather bas continued through
out all districts east of the Rocky Moun
tains, tho daily tompcraturo in the cen
tral valleys ranging (rom C to 12 below
the averago daily temperature for the
week, while in tho Northwest and in the
Southern and Middle States tho daily tem
perature was from 3 to 6 lower than
usual. Iu Now England the touiperature
differed but slightly from the normal and
although generally cooler in the interior at
some stutions in tho coast it was slightly
warmer than usual. West of tho liocky
Mountains tho temperature was generally
alovo tho normal for tho week.
The largo seasonal excess of temperature
which prevailed in tho Northwest and the
slight excess as previously reported north
of the thirly-liflh parallel lias been still
further rodticod by th'e cool weather of the
past week, and at thn close of tho present
week tho seasonal temperature in all States
east of the Mississippi and from Iowa and
Nebraska southward to tho Gulf, differed
less than two degrees from the normal, or
tho aventgo daily teuiporuture has been
less than two degrees in excess of tho nor
mal in the regions named. In Minnesota
and Dakota tbo season continues from ouo
to two weeks in advance. In New Fng
lund it is about one week early, whilo it Is
slightly ia advance in the eoutral valleys
and slightly retarded on tbo Uulf and
South Atlantic Coasts.
The rainfall (or the week bas been gen
erally less than usual throughout all fl1
cultural districts except New Kugland, al
though well distributed rains occurred
generally through the wheat and corn
States aud over the tobacco and northern
(tortion of the cotton regions. Tho drouth
conl 1 11 lies from Florida and tho southern
portiou of Georgia to Sout hern Louisiana,
within which region no ruin occurred dur
ing tho week, nnd tlio rains of the previous
week were not sufficient to relieve this re
gion from tho previous drouth. 'Iho
present week is the third week of tho cm
rent season during which no ruin occurred
in this section. Tho sciibonul rainfall con
tinues in excess generally throughout tho
Mid. llo Stales, the eastern portion of
North and South Carolina and from Texas
northward lo tho Missouri Yallev. In
' stales bordering on the gn at lak.s aud 111

rainfall generally exceeds 70 per cent, of
the normal, while (rom the Ohio ltiver
southward tojtho Gulf Coast only from 50
to 70 per cent, of tho seasonal rainfall bas
In Tennessee and tbo Ohio Valley the
injurious effects of such largo dctlciuncics
in rainfall bus leen greatly mitigated by
the timely occurrence of rain iu this re
gion. Heavy local rains occurred over tho
1101 thorn aud western portions of tlio cot
ton region, including Georgia, western
jxiriions of South Cuioliuu, Central Missis
sippi, Northern Louisiana and Fustern
Texas. Thy week bus generally bivn favor
able for all crops in the l'per M.ssirsippi
nnd Missouri Valleys, and the corn is rap
idly recovering from the cllccts of tiio re
cent frost, considerable being replanted. '
More rain is uecoVdl in Northern Minne
sota and Dakota. In the States iu the Ohio
Yulley the weather conditions favored
wheal, grass, oals and tobaccos, but tlio
weather was too cold and wet for corn. In
Kentucky and Tennessee tho weather has
improved tho tobacco crop much moro
than was anticipated, but previous injury
will doubtlcas prevent a full crop.
In Texas all crop nro benelitvd except
cotton, the growth of which was n'Urdod
by cool weather, ltecclit rains aud fix-shuts
in the Middle States and North Caro
lina have greatly damaged growing crops,
and in the localities escaping the freshet
the weather was so as to provo Injurious.
In New Fnglund the conditions were gen
erally favorable for all cro excepting
com, which wa slightly injured by low
temperature. Kepuris nro eseciauy fa
vorable from Arkansas and Kansas, where
tho w heat harvoet is in progress and corn
well advanced. Harvesting is also pro
greasing favorably in Teuuessoo, but somo
damage occurred from bail in the north
cm aud middle ortioii on Monday.
