NEGROES BARKED IN CHARLESTON.
MIDNIGHT DISPATCHES TO PREJU

We have been informed that
the colo ed people in Charleston,
S. O., are not receiving a pro rata
share of the contributions sent
from different parts of the coun
try. The midnight
bring up favorable reports from
that section which tend to operate
against the helpless colored suffer'
era. This is a poor way to preju
dice the northern mind ap;ainst the
Negroes of the south. After the
earthquake, no class of people
worked harder for the helpless
white people than the colored peo
ple of Charleston, S. C. They are
now being compensated with re
buffs and bad treatment on the
part of the white managers.
There are two
in the 2d North Carolina district,
Mr. O'Hara and Mr. Abbott. It
18 claimed that the former is the
regular candidate while others
claim that Mr. Abbott is the regu
lar candidate. Who is, we are un
able to say. Mr. O'Hara has made
a fair representative and why there
is bo much opposition to him
we do not know. Will the
uuite upon any question? One or
the other of the candidates should
get out of the way. If Mr. O'Hara
is the regular candidate, Mr. Ab
bott should retire from the field.
To gain respect the colored people
should respect themselves. There
is a disposition on the part of cer
tain colored people to draw the
color line; and yet they ask the
white people to give the Negroes
their civil and political rights,
mixed schools, &c. Why should
we ask for that which we do not
practice? The outlook
is very gloomy for the republican
party, which claims to have the
people. There is but one
way to solve the Negro question.
Colored men must support men
We should support men
who will deal iustlv toward us. If
a democrat offers anv inducement
and pledges himself to "render un
Ceasar the things that are Cea
sarV then support that man in pre
ference to any white or bU.clc man
who is inimical to our interests.
If in any state the democrats want
to send a colored man to the next
let him accept and go to that con
vention a9 a delegate. The time
has come for the Negro to strike
for himself. The time hae come
for him to show his political inde
pendence, but not to divide against
himself. In the 2d N. C. district
we claim that he ha9 divided

Henry, YIII, 1509, A. D., mar
ried his brother Henry's widow,
Catharine daughter of Ferdinand of
Arragon, at the time Italy was the
ground of strife between France
and Spain and Julias II the Pone
of Roine, drew Henry into a league
to drive the foreigners out of Spainj
to show his appreciation of this act
of Henrys, the Pope presented
Henry's ambassador at the court
of Rome a perfumed and blessed
Rosebud and bestowed upon him
the Cardinal's hat. Julias died in
1513. He was a shrewd politician,
and made the affairs of War and
State his principal characteristics.
Pope Leo. X succeeded him. Wol
sey, an extraordinary man, who
from a teacher, worked his way in
to the graces of Henry and became
his Minister and was made a cardi
nal by Leo. X. To further his own
ends Wolsey worked to attain the
Popal throue himself by a neat lit
tle game with Charles, graudson of
Ferdiuand, who assured him of the
Popacy. This Cardinal Wolsey
put the Duke of Buckingham a
great friend of Henry's to death.
Here Martin Luther, an Augustine
Friar, came in, 1521 A. D. The
collection of money for Popal in-

but had now been taken irom them
by Leo and turned over to the
Dominicans. This enraged Luther
and he commenced war on the
Pope and commenced to avenge
himself by exposing the corruption
of the Popal church. Leo. X died
1522 A. D., and was succeeded by
Adrian, who admitted the corrup
tion of the Romish church. Wolsey
who became so great, rich and
haughty, dictated to the House of
Commons and that body sat down
upon him. Adrian died 1524 and
was succeeded by Pope Clement VII.
Wolsey became very indignant,
but Clement continued his great
powers and Wolsey was satisfied.
Charles, Emperor of Snain.
wanted to marry Henry's daught
er, the Princess of Mary ; Henry
doubted the legitimacy of his mar
riage with Catharine and sought a
dissolution of it because he loved
Anne Boleyn, and applied to the
Pope for a divorce ; the Pope and
two Cardinals, Wolsey and Cam
peggis, got up a court in England
to try the case, which was looked
to Rome or Catharines' appeal.
Wolsey suspected of treachery by
Henry, went down under the wrath
of Henry and in the fuss the breach
between Henry aud the Popal pow
er grew wider, and Wolsey after
giving a touching caution against
wordley ambition, died 1528. Hen
ry began his policy against
the Popal power, in the" meantime
he married AnncBoleyn and Eliza
beth is born and his marriage with
Catharine annulled by the Bishop
of Canterbury, Crammer, a popist,
but the Pope nullified Crammers'
sentence. Luther's exposure of
the Roman church and its corrup
tion is doing great work among the
people of Europe: Henry began
to demolish the Monasteries: an
insurrection bioke out against his
action, and he hung the popal
dupes by scorces, and became
Pope as well as King aud put
Crammer to death by burning be
cause he contradicted the real pres
ence in the Eucharist. Henry went
on marrying other women, put
innocent men and women to death ;
denied all authority of the Pope in
the Religeon or State, and died in
1548 A. D. Henry was a great, but
cruel king, sparing not "man in
his anger nor woman in his lust.'
He broke the ponai nower in the
British Realm, because he was the
recipient of its duplicity, corrup
tions aud graspingof temporal pow
ers, but he never established any
church, the Anglican Catholic
church still remained as she was
founded, but cleared of Popal do-
iiiiuiuij aim arrogance.

It is understood that Mr. Mann

has improved so much in health by
the rest he has taken that he will
resume his position on the 1st of
October. This information is very
gratifying, and it is only hoped that
it is true. Mr. Manning, however,
should, inaugurate some reforms
when he gets to his office again., He
should not seek to attend personal

HE ARRESTED HIS SON.
A Night watchman in St. Louis
arrested his own son in the act of
incendiarism and turned him over
to the proper authorities, whereup
on the daily press terms him a
Spartan father, - a hero, etc. It
strikes an ordinary man that the
proper thing to do is to insist that
the man as well as his son should
be reproved, at least. It is indeed
a rare case where a boy who has
had proper teaching and proper
parental discipline at home is
found, at so early an age, engaged
in criminal practices.
