COLUMBIA, Jane '25.-The annual examina?
tions and closing exercises of the Howard
School were finished yesterday. This institu?
tion is devoted exclusively to the colored race.
It was established the first year after the war,
but under different auspices from the present.
Two years ago a large wooden building was
erected by the Freedmen's Burean, at the ex?
pense of the general government, and the
Howard School established in it. Beyond the
building itself the Bureau has had noth?
ing to do with the support of the school. The
corps of teachers consists of ten-one princi?
pal and nine teachers, all female. Of these
nine, eight are white and one colored. The
principal, Miss Haley,, is from the North, as
are all the white teachers, and she has been
connected with the school from its commence?
ment. These teachers have been employed
and sent South by the New York Branch o'the
Freedmen's Union Commission. Ooe of them,
however, is supported by a private citizen of
Hartford-a Mr. Clarke-ont of bis private
means. Recently the Presbyterian Freedmen's
Society has taken the support of teachers in
hand, and will continue it m the future. The
lands on which the house is built belong in
part to the freedmen of Columbia and in part
to the New York branch of the commission,
the houBe itself to the United States Govern?
ment, and the teachers are supported by bene?
volent societies and private individuals in the
The ten ieaohers conduct ten classes or divi?
sions, called schools ; and all the pupils are
classified carefully in these ten schools. The
maximum number of scholars reached io any
one month during the session just dosing,
which began in October, 1868, was in winter
jost 600. Of these about 275 were boys and 825
girls. The maximum number-600-is very
far above the average nnmbef of pupils tor the
whole session, be revue -the early months did
not present as full lists on account of the in?
complete supply of teachers. Of the pupils
about one-third are negroes, and the other
two-thirds mulattoes and quadroons. From a
class of twenty-three, which one of the teach?
ers informed me was a fair specimen of the
whole as to color, I estimate that the school of
600 pup?B is c imposed of 200 negroaa and 400
of mixed race; the mixed element consisting
ot about 80 black quadroons, 135 mulattoes,
and 185 white quadroons. The branches in
which these colored pupils most excel, the
teachers inform me, are spelling, reading and
geography; wirtie they are less apt at arithmet?
ic and grammar. It will be observed that
memory is the negro's forte, rather than think?
ing;. The pupils range, as to age, apparently
from nine to over twenty.
The examinations consisted of three dayp.
The first, Tuesday, was devoted to the prima?
ry department, The second, Wednesday, to
tho intermediate; and in this department four
prizes were distributed. The third day, Thurs?
day, was devoted to the higher department,
and was the most intereeting,in that the pnpils
were the farthest advanced. The pupils of this1
department were examined in arithmetic,
spelling, readme-, writing, grammar and geo?
graphy. They did remarkably well-for ne?
groes ; but judged by the standards that we
apply to whites, I cannot say that I think they
did very well. My impression is that the
teachers should be honored for having done eo
much with snob material ; and that the com?
munity owe them a great deal for having done
all that could be done towards educating
the colored people. The work that they
have done has been well done, although
not all that we and they could wish. I
I think the sentiment of the community upon
this matter is one of approval and thankful?
ness. On this third and clo ii og day, there
were six prizes awarded, of which two were for
"excellence in echolarship and deportment ;"
one for "uniform politeness and respectful be?
havior;" two for "punctuality;" and ono for the
highest number of credits and merits, inelud
iog both deportment and recitations. It will
bo seen that scholarship is not the basis of
most of these awards. The individual pupil
that held m all respects the highest rank, was
so near white that white quadroon, (three
fom th s white) would not give a fair idea of his
color. His hair was perfectly straight, and his
features unmistakably Irish. Hie Bister, of the
same mixtnre, bore off two of the highest
To sive Bpeoimene of their recitations would
hardly convey a fair idea of their attainments;
and might appear in a spirit of complaint,
while nothing could be farther from the feel?
ings induced by witnessing these exercises.
Incidental to these examination exercises
there were several points worthy of note. The
audience was almost entirely negroes-the
whites being about one to ten.
Just before the close of the exercises Messrs.
Moses, the Adjutant-General, and Neagle, the
Compti oller .General, came forward ea oh with
a cup, asking that tho caps be presented as
prizes to the most worthy in the two depart?
ments, first and second. The presentation of
the cups was done by Mr. \ eagle; and the oc?
casion demanded, of coarse, that both the cup
presenters should be invited to ''make a few
remarks." Without any apparent reluctance
the 7 both assented, Mr. Neagle leading the
way. He had but one theme-himself. He
exphined to the school-girls and boya how
much he had gone through with in his efforts
os a loader of the Repu .hean party in behalf
of the negroes; how he had suffered insult, re?
velings, and all manner of persecutions from
the white people in his efforts to advance the
negro, and to secure the triumph of the Re?
publican party to which tho negroes oelonged;
how prominent be hud been as a leader ot that
party; and how he waa going to die hy il; and
now they might always rely upon him as the
friend of the negroes and a piominent leader
of the Republican party.
Mr. Neagle, havn? delivered himself of
both cups and speech, sat down with the air
of one who felt that the groat event of the day
was achieved, and well achieved. But the end
was not yet. For the Adjutant nod Inspector
General bad brought a cup, and had a speech
in him, which had jet to bc heard. General
Moses had the tact to see that a speech on
Moses by him. just after a epeecb on Neaglo by
Neagle, would not do He accordingly address?
ed himself to the proper theme of the day and
occasion-the nogro and hts education. He
said very foroiblv that, if there was any place,
outside of a Christian church, where feelings
of gravity at the impoi tan cs of the work bet?re
them, should impress the mind, it was in that
sahool house. The mingled pathos and piety
of the lexnark produced a profound impression;
and tbe speaker's sou mn and asceiio tone of
voice conveyed a rebukf that none bnt an eye?
witness could possibly appreciate, Ahe Gene
ra i'a speech, taken all together, was very per?
tinent and well put.
After these visitors had delivered them?
selves of their caps and speeches, Mr. Jil Ison,
tbs State Superintendent of Schools, who was
there officially, delivered an address to the ne?
groes that was foll of point, practicalness and
sense-jost what the occasion called for. He
thonght it was not the place for political har?
angues, nor an occasion whereat things should
be said to embitter race against race, and po?
litical party against -political party; and every
honest man and woman, white and black, there,
fully endorsed that sentiment, and 6ome of
them wondered whether the Comptroller-Gene
end felt bad or not. He certainly looked so;
bat then there's no judging by appearances
This winds up the session of the Howard
School of freedmen; and a holiday comea now
until the first of October, when the next ses?
sion is to open. The prospects are said by
those connected with the institution tobe
favorable for a fine school next session.
Our white people sincerely sympathize in
these efforts to elevate and educate the negro;
and the value of every one of them is enhanced
in the direct ratio of their elevation.

mat ic and consular positions. It is understood
the Attorney-General, on b:-iug questioned,
repheJ that General Sickles' case is clearly
within the provisions of the law, and that his
being on the retired list makes no difference.

insulting nickname upon another editor, or to
put into circulation some story prejudicial to
his character, or to attribute to him some base
motive for bis opinions, or to sting and irritate
him in any way with that most poisonous of
weapons-a pen dipped in the venom ef malice

to keep his memory green and hallowed."
-Commodore James W. Cook, formerly of

nected with the Confederate naval service,
died at Portsmouth, Ya., on Monday, in the

Island, while in command of the steamer
Forrest, Commodore Cook exhibited bravery
unsurpassed io history. After the fall of the
island he retreated with his little steamer be- j
fore the enemy's fleet to Elizabeth City. Here,
like a lion brought to bay, he fought
with desperation against overwhelming odds.
Hie vessel was boarded, but be refused to sur?
render, and was wounded aud forced to the
deck, and even then refused to pull down tho
flag wbich be was willing to die for. His
victors, astonished at his daring valovrefused
to use their right of power upon him, and con?
fined him to the deck, which was red with bis
blood and that of his men.
-There is quite a sharp contest going on for
Mr. Raymond's successor in the New York
Times. The principal stockholders in the con?
cern are George Jones, the puubhsher and
businc-8 man of the concern, who owns thirty
shares; Mr. Raymond's ebtate, lhirty-fonr
shares; Jas. ?. Taylor, fourteen shares; E. li.
Morgan, of Cayuga, ten shares; A. B. Stout,
ten shares, and two other shares owned by
other parties, makiDg in all one hundred
shares. The shores are valued at ten thou?
sand dollars, making the concern woith about
one million dollars. Tho different interests
are divided as to who will be Mr. Raymond's
successor. One interest favors Geo. William
Curt?as, another interest woold like to see Mr.
Godkin, of the Nation, and another interest is
pressing Mr. District Attorney Tracey, of
Brooklyn. How the matter will end it is im?
possible to say. The Times is a prosperous

THE NEW CABINET MINISTER.
The Chango tn the Navy Department
What ie Thought ot the flew Secreta?
ry--V Sketch ot hie Career.
The event of Friday at Washington waa the
resignation of Hr. Boric, Secretary of the
Navy, ?nd the appointment of Hr. George H.
Robeson, of New Jersey, in his place. The
correspondent ot the Baltimore Sun writes :
The resignation of Ur. Rorie jnst at this date
was as unlooked for as was another selection of
a member of the Cabinet from a comparatively
obscure class, having hut little notoriety in his
own State, and being absolutely unknown to
our people at large.
The resignation of Hr. Borie at no distant
day had been prognosticated by the Washing?
ton correspondents, but it bad also been posi?
tively asserted by gentlemen representing the
Radical press, and claiming to speak **by au?
thority," that Hr. Borie had no intention of
giving up the office. His official duties, how?
ever, have all along been performed by Admi?
ral Porter, the latter being, as it were, Secre?
tary de facto, and Borie being merely de jure
bead of the Navy Department. It seems tbe
affair was brought about so quietly that even
some members of the Cabinet weie not aware
of what was transpiring until Mr. Robeson had
taken the oath of office. And it is reported
that Mr. Borie was permitted to name his suc?
cessor, and himself suggested Robeson.
Where? there is a loud outcry from the Penn?
sylvanians now here, who claim that of rig h t
and in all fairness the State of Pennsylvania
should have a member of the Cabinet, and they
berate Mr. Borie for neglecting the interests
of his own State in that particular.
As for the new appointment, it has taken
everybody by surprise, and the universal in?
quiry has been, "Who is Robeson ?" Very lit?
tle satisfaction could be obtained in response
to this inquiry, until a New Jersey politician
turned up, in the course ot the afternoon, and
gave the gratifying intelligence that he is well
acquainted with Hon. George M. Robeson, who
is, or was this morning, Attorney-General of
the State of New Jersey; that he is "a pretty
fair lawyer," a good man, was once Adj ut ant
Geoeraf of his 8 ta te, is a bachelor, rather
above medina size, robust health ard about
forty-five years ot age.. And this is all we

In conversing upon his appointment this
morning, Mr. Robeson said he had oo donbt
that the people were surprised wben the change
was announced, tnt they were certainly not
more surpiiaed than he was when he received
notice of his appointment. It was entirely un?
expected and unsolicited on tbe part of him?
self or bis friends. Mr. Borie, it ii understood,
resigned on account of ill health. His resig?
nation was handed to the President this morn?
ing, and his successor was immediately ap?
pointed, and the oath of office was administer?
ed to him at noon by Justice Cotter, of tbe
District Supreme Court. He was subsequently
introduced to ihe officers and heads of bureaus
m tbe Navy Department, and set about famil?
iarizing himself with the duties of bis new po?
sition. It is pretty generali v understood that
Admiral Porter will retain his present position
in the department, and the presumption is,
therefore, that the general policy that has been
pursued thus far will not be ohanged.

and wined the incoming functionary this
evening. Among others there were present

Mr. Robeson is a strong, decided Republican
on all questions of national policy, and is in
entire accord with the party which supported
the election of General Grant. It is a curious

The Ledger says : For two weeks past we
have bad very favorable weather, which has

inst., says : Most of the planters have culti?
vated quite enough corn for their necessities,
and this crop looks vc rv well indeed: t ii ero is
fully as much planted as there waa last year.
The cotton looks very well. It was thought
that the cold spring had injured it; but so far
from this being the case. I th i ak it was ad?
vantageous, for it kept the cotton back until
it had gained strength and thinned out all of
the weak plants, which would have only ab?
sorbed the nutriment from the stronger, and
as soon as the warm weather came the plants
shot forward and have been growing finely,
and are now probably larger and stronger
than they would have been if we bad had an
early and warm spring. I remember that m
1859. when our largest cotton crop was pro?
duced, the spring was cold and late, and fol?
lowed bv a severe drought. There baa been
more land put in cotton this season than last,
and if we have as fine weather for the balance
of the summer as we have bad for the past
six weeks, I think there will be a larger croo
made. The freedmen are working well and
steadily, mere so than any year since ' free?
