-An earnest begin nmg of an extens Ive plan of

?Colonial Emigration Society-the object being to
rid the country bf a surplus! unemployed and

party of emigrants sent ont by this society, num?
bering about eco, left London recently for the
Dominion of Canada. The party consisted or!
men, women and children from the distressed
districts of the metropolis-laborers and mechan?
ic*-whose condition cannot faU to be improved

them tn Canada. The Medway screw steamer In
which" they sailed ls ah iron .vessel, and lt is said
that careful provision was made for their com?
fort on the voyage, which is mach more than can
be said ir respect to the ordinary arrangements
for the transportation of emigrants to this coun?
try, other parties of emigrants are preparing to
follow1 this, and the Canadian government is
making provision, by the establishment of suita?
ble d apo ts and agencies, for their reception and
designation to'.places where work ls awaiting
them, and where, in comparison with their fierce
struggle for existence at home, they confidently
look 'or a splendid industrial Inheritance.
-The "Wendell PalUips among women," Mrs.
Celia Burleigh, of Brooklyn, N. Y., under the |
auspices .of Sorosis, ventilated her Ideas regard?
ing "Chiidceu."" on thursday evening. She was
surrounded on nil sides of the platform by such
lovers of reform, ir not of children, as Mrs. Jennie
Jane Oro ly,'Miss Kellogg, Mrs. Wilber, Mrs. Har?
land, and several lesser lights. Mrs. Burleigh ls
* lady above the medium height, and has the
general bearing or a respectable school teacher;
is self-possessed, and talks passionate and fervid
words without visible emotion. She addressed
her audience as gentlemen and ladies, placing
decided emphasis on the first word. The distinc?
tive rights of children were defined and Insisted
opon with grace and spirit; their rights tobe- j j
horn under the best conditions and Into a peace
fol atmosphere, to pore slr, to care that is n>t
fussingy and to a great deal or Judicious letting
.alone. A child she regarded as an embodied In?
terrogation, apd had a right to hare his qui?
ttons answered. The differences in the education
of children, to her mind, were au wrong. Girls
should bo taught to use the jack-knife, the ham?
mer and the saw; to teach the boy how to take
entire charge qr his room would not lessen his
chance?-or an honorable manhood. The child
should* als? be permitted "sovereignty of his per?
son and freedom from : Invasion," which right
precludes unwarrantable and indiscriminate
-The Senate Committee on Pensions, in making
up their report on what they evidently consider
a most avariciousdemandon the part or President
.Lincoln's widow, say there ls no principle on
'Which pensions have hitherto been granted in
-this country which warrants them in granting
the relier asked for. They cite the fact that no
similar provision has ever been made for the
widows of many civil officers, who, from the earl?
iest periods, have lost their Uves while in the per?
formance or public duties, and who len behind
them widows and orphans in bereavement, ag?
gravated by poverty and want. The committee
were constrained to lind, from the facts before
them, that Mrs. L. could not in fact be in the des?
titute condition which had been represented,
And that her means must be reasonably auf-11
noient to the jost necessity of a citizen of the
United States, either at home or abroad. A re?
capitulation of her assets disclosed that at the
time of her husband's demise she was possessed
of $58,765 60, In addition to considerable unpro?
ductive real estate, besides no end of clothing,
plate, household goode, 4c. The lady, it appears,
does not urge her claim entirely on thc ground of
actual want. In her petition transmitted from
Frankfort, praying for a pension, she stated that
she had boen advised to try the mineral water
during the summer and then go to Italy, "but,"
she modestly (?) writes, "my flnauclal means do
not permit me to tate advantage of thc urgent ad?
vice given me, nor can I live in a style becoming
the widow of thc Chief Magistrate or a great na?
tion, though I lire as economically as I can. The
committee say-from the stand-point of a Euro?
pean kingdom and European society-this very
probably ls correct; but In a fepublican country,
where there is no distinction of rank, and where
all duties are measured largely by the means or
performance, the committee think a fortune of
$60,000. or even one-third of that sum, for a lady,
must take her out of the category or those whose
necessities, in consequence of the casualties of
public service, give them a claim upon the treasu?
ry. Finally, they do not think that either senti?
ment or duty requires a further provision in ac-'
cordance with-her request, and recommend an
indefinite postponement of thc bill.
To-day the graves of the Confederate dead
at Magnolia, and in the differont city"ceme?
teries, wilt be decorated and adorned by the
fair women of Charleston. On this morn?
ing, at least, our people are one in purpose
and one in spirit Bound together, as with
hooks of steel, by the memory of a common
hope and a commo?~sorrow, we may unite
with the whole South in venerating and lov?
ing the fallen Southern soldier, whose unsel?
fish life found a heroic close in the crimson
glory of his death.
The Mechanics' Lyceum.
The workingmen of Charleston are labor?
ing in earnest to improve their position.
Already they have numbers, manual skill
and native intelligence. Let them dig deep
in the mines of.knowledge; let them polish
the mind as they sharpen the implements of
their calling; let them explore the broad
fields of literature and science-and, assu?
redly, they will dignify themselves and their
handiwork and win the most valued prizes
of rank, fame and fortune. * These working?
men have a fair start io the long race of life. J
They are protected in the enjoyment of every I
civil and political right, and they can pro?
tect themselves wherever the law may fail
them. Prejadice and intolerance aro pow?
erless to hann them, and the Lyceum which
they have just established is an evidence
that they are resolved to increase their power
by making mind and muscle toil and strive
By establishing the Mechanics' Lyceum
the workingmen of the. City of Charleston
hope to give the young men of the city, the
mechanics and tho workingmen, something
more than a bare education. This, for the
most part, they already have. At the Ly?
ceum they will be informed of the progress
made in every department of science. AU
the latest inventions in tools and labor?
saving machines will be brought under their
notice. The Lyceum will enable every
workingman to show what stuff there Ls in
bim. Co-operative enterprises will be fos?
tered and encouraged, and, in general, the
workingmen will be taught how to econo- J
mize capital and labor, and bow to use most J
effectively the force which they possess. AU
this is lucidly set forth in the preamble and
constitution of the Lyceum, printed in TUE
NEWS of yesterday. So far, the institution
is in its infancy, but, if it be supported as it
deserves to be, this city, in the^course of a
few years, wiU have a Lyceum of hie highest
value to the people of the State. Its influ?
ence wiU be felt in every direction, and the
workingmen, rising rapidly in wealth and
in the social scale, will do good service in
liberalizing and energizing the State, and io
giving strength and stability to the new
And who shall say that this is predicting
too much ? Is the workingman of Charles?
ton less \igorou3, less intelligent or less in?
dustrious than the workingman of England
or Ireland or Germany? Our workingmen
are staunch son3 of sturdy sires, and looking
across the broad Atlantic they find an hun?
dred lessons of confidence and hope. Jere?
my Taylor, the most poetical of divines,
and Lord Tenterden, one of the most dis?
tinguished of the Lord Chief Justices of
England, came from the barber's shop.
Shakespeare liimseU was a wool-comber.
The class of day-laborers gave rise to Burns,
the poet, Ben Jonson, the learned dramatist,
and Hugh Miller, the geologist Inigo
Jones, the architect, and John Gibson, the
sculptor, were journeymen carpenters. Shoe?
makers have given as Admiral Sir Cloudes
ley Shovel, and Robert Bloomfield, the poet.
Cardinal Woolsey was the son of a butcher,
Bunyan was a tinker, and Michael Faraday
was the son of a blacksmith. The father of
Gregory VU. was a carpenter, of Sexttw V
a shepherd, and of Adrian VI a poor barge?
man. But enough of these. The United
States is rich in examples of men who have
raised themselves, by strenuous individual
application, to the first places in the com?
monwealth. And the workingmen of Charles?
ton have among their number some who
can, if they will, achieve 'distinction in any
walk of Ufe, and all of them can by steady
working improve their position and that of
the children who come after them. Had j
liebeg been necessary to man's highest cul?
ture, the world would not be" so largely in- :
ilebted to those who sprang from the ranks.
Poverty, indeed, may be converted into a
blessing, rousing a man to that struggle .
with the world, in which the right minded .
and true hearted lind strength and conti- i
dence and triumph. J
Workingmen of Charleston, think of these J
There wa3 a certain venerable preacher,
ince greatly esteemed in Charleston, both '
tor bis intellectual and moral qualities, who
n his old age feU into the habit of preach?
ing one and the same sermon on every Sun
lay. The old gentleman never repeated the 1
same text. He ranged from Genesis to Rev- j
stations. But whatever might be the in- 1
spired sentence with which the weekly hom- :
By begun, the discourse in i<3 progress soon
fell into the old rut, which it pursued to the
ind of the ?'Sabbath day's journey." J
A similar procedure marks the dotage of
i party. When a poUtical organization 1 '
loses its fertility of idea, and even of lan
guage, when it deals only in commonplaces,
when its resorts and devices can be an
ticipated, when it lives in the past, when
its joints cease to be supple, and it drivels
in its speech, we may be sure that such a
party is antiquated, and soon will become
Now this is precisely the condition of the
corrupt leaders of the Radical party. They
have done so thriving a business upon "out
"rages," that they regard this as the trump
card in the suit. An election that does not
put one of their tools in office has been over?
awed by outrages. A State which does not
honor the most contemptible of its citizens
and thc base among its resident aliens, is so
disorderly as to require martial law-it ts
an amphitheatre where creatures fiercerthan
Numidian lions are tearing the martyrs to
pieces. If a knavish fellow, who buys stolen
cotton at night, is "interviewed" by a vigi?
lance committee composed of his plundered
neighbors; if a forgetful fellow who has
failed to pay his taxes is visited by the sher?
iff's posse; if a thirsty fellow who has de
frauded the revenue loses his distillery-all
these creatures send their appeals to Wash?
ington. A Southern outrage has been like
Mr. Weller's famous alibi-a resort in every1
case of difficulty.
And now a new field for its application
has presented itself. The character of the
heartless marauder, whose march was traced
in lire along the fertile valley of the Shen?
andoah, has been seriously compromised by
the slaughter of the Piegan women and
children, not even infants at the breast hav?
ing been spared by the infuriate soldiery,
whom he urged not only to strike, but to
"strike hard." More atrocious than that of
Glencoe was the massacre which at once in?
volved the mather and the babe, aud butch?
ered the invalid who lay dying with small?
pox in bis lodge. The heart sickens with
horror as we read that, in the little winter
settlement attacked by the United States
troops, not le3s than six persons were dying
.daily under so revolting and terrible a
Now, how do Butler and Sumner and Sher?
man and their crew seek to save the reputa?
tion of their favorite General ? Let a NeW|
York contemporary reply. Says the Sunday
"From all parts of the frontier come alarm?
ing reports of intended Indian insurrections,
and the telegraph is made to convey frantic
calls for Sheridan. The Indian outrage busi?
ness is suspiciously like the rebel outrage busi?
ness In the South. Whenever the Radicals in
Congress are contemplating some unusually
villanous scheme to rob or ruin the people,
a crop of terrible outrages springs forth from
the Southern soil. Thc Radicals are old hands
at thc machine. The device is now being used
to help along the Washington Indian ring and
the battered reputation of Piegan Phil."
Thc trick is transparent-we woul.. add,
it is quite played out, did we not know that
rather than sacrifice Sheridan these men
wiil provoke the outrages which they now
invent. They would have done the same
thing at the South, had not the sagacity of
our people penetrated, and the self-command
of our people frustrated, their atrocious
