Commissioners to supervise our

the trustees. The number as a

pendent papers publish the colored
people as they do other citizens.
The colored people should learn
how to demand the respect of white
journals by supporting those that
know how to appreciate the race.
Why should there bo a separate

of color support? In this city as

There is as much need for reform
in the church as there is in any
other institution. Some pretended

the christian church do its duty.

this universe that needs reforming

of the republican party and ex
commissioner Dudley is meetiug
with cold comfort. There never
was a more honest man than Gen.
Dudley. He promoted the Negro
on his merits and not since he re
signed has a Negro been promoted
to any importaut position iu the
men never torget to revenge. They
are like the Indian. They would
sooner forget the wrongs done
them by the Anglosaxon than they
would forgive the injury done them
by their own race.
There must be a new generation ;
new blood must be infused into the
Negro before he will ever become
a race. I am of the opinion that
the Negro woman of education is
superior to the men of her race.
The old slave nations and ways
exist to a certain extent. The race
has not forgotten how treacherous
their fore-parents were to each oth

that the teachers have an easy time,
but, uo one knows her responsibili

far as to say that the teacher in the
public schools receives too much
money. This is not so. Indeed, they
should receive more. Their work is
more laborious than a department
clerk, who is well paid and even
allowed 30 days leave with pay,
while the poor teacher must toil
day and night. The department
clerk rests after his office hours,
while the teachers must toil aud
labor over the register after school

No ignoramus has any business
ou the school board. Aschool trus
tee should be a refined gentleman,
and highly educated. The delicate
feelings of women demand refined
aud educated men to be among
them. A school trustee should be
capable of entering a school aud
examining pupils in auy branch of
study. It is hoped that when the
school trustees are appointed un
der the new school bill, that the
Commissioners will see that those
who are to take charge of the col
ored schools possess the necessary
requisites. I feel sorry for some
people who after being thrown out
of society seek to revenge them
selves on others who have the re
spect and confidence of the people.
Men aud women should be careful
and build up society aud not en
deavor to ruin those who are build
ing it up. Some of our
are learning some sense. They be
gin to realize the iact that it is
necessary to save their money, in
stead of spending it for parties,
balls, &c. The administration has
a good effect on some. I know that
the young men are not so foolish as
they use to be. I am glad to see it
and hope that the will continue.
