lt Ls difficult to keep pace with all
tho slanders . and misrepresentations
of the Southern people by tho radical
press of the North. They neem de?
termined to perpetuate sectioual ill
feeling-to keep alive that hatred
and animosity, of which they were
the generators. The -New York" Tri?
bune, with il? radical corps' of writers,
-stands pre-eminent in this work of de?
famation for political purposes, AU?
has done moro-first, to destroj

we are told the Fourth of July wa
celebrated as the anniversary of th
battle of Bull Run; the rebel flag wc
displayed, and cheered loudly by th
crowd. " It is superfluous to say tin
the above assertion is false, so far i
our own people are concerned; but
ia mournful to see how utterly d
praved the human heart can becou
ander the baleful influence of part
ambition. These writers hesitate n<
to belie the people of a whole sectic
of their own country for the sole pu
pose of the advancement of the
party interests in the management
the Government, for surely they ha
not become so depraved as to pn
lish these falsehoods merely for tl
fiendish pleasure of uttering thei
ol* from malignant hate towards tl
people against whom they are wa
tonly inscribed from day to day.
But seekers of truth at the Nor
should be made acquainted with t
true position of the peo id o of t
South. Conservative papers iu th
section should do all in their pow
to aid in their enlightenment, a
thus refute tho slanderers and bal
their iniquitous schemes. We n<

Of the Southern people extends, t
"conquered banner" is furled f
ever. It lives, and probably will 1
for generations to come, in this sue
clime of ours, in the memories a
affections of the people; but the ii
that it will ever be raised again as
standard of a separate nationality,
that the sons of the South will e
rally around it again for that j
pose, is preposterous in the extre:
and, as we have intimated above
simply put forth for party pnrpo
or to gratify a malignant hate.
No! that banner is furled

The men who folded it and pu

may say they wrapped it up

with its folds untarnished by
honor. Let it rest; for it cnn n
be unfurled again in our day
generation, without dishonor to
cause of which it was once recogn
as a proud emblem. The b
which furled it have recorded 1
allegiance and renewed their f<
to the "old flag," and there are
among them who would dishonc
glorious memories by an act

rest assured, can never goad the
pie of the South to take up
again, and thus violate their a
obligations to the Government

their allegiance and recorded
vows of fealty, and in good fait
thefce vows be kept inviolate.
Should any cause hereafter

know this, oh! ye conservati v<

EducntiAjn Of th? Colored People.
Education may not, in some capes,
be a preventive of crime, but, as the
handmaid of Christian civilization, it
exercises, among all classes, a salutary
influence, -whatever may be tho sta?
tion ofifcs recipients. It is that,
holding these .views? we advocate a
fitting education for the colored peo?
ple among us. It is especially neces?
sary, in their new relation to the
communities in Which they reside, as
a.check to licentiousness and demo
ralization, which, without it, aro the
natural consequences of a sudden
change from bondage to freedom.
We are gratified to notice, in th<
Chester Standard, a short account o
the examination of two colore*
schools, in that town, last week
which appear to have been - quite or
dorly-the Standard only objecting t<
the wearing of swords by some of tin
marshals of the pre?minary proc?s
sion, which, of course, was not ii
good taste. But what interests u
most was thc spirit and matter o
several adiresses, delivered by co

Our ootemporary informs'ivs tin

and its great importance warmly ail

demnation of thc various emigratio
schemes, and advised their hearers t

protection of their iortner master
Temperance, industry and honest
were especially enjoined, and polit
ness to tho whites urged as a "matt*
of duty and propriety.

FROM NEW OKIJEAXS.-The New
Orleans Crescent, of Friday, says that
at a conference with Mavor Monroe,
Lieutenant-Governor \ oorhees and
Attorney-General Herron, General
Baird stated that he was now willing
to permit tho sheriff to obey the
mandates of the conrt-1. e., allow
the members of the Convention to be
arrested upon the presentment of the
grand jury. On the subject of de?
claring martial law, it is understood
that General Baird has telegraphed
to the Secretary of War that, by re?
volting to that measure, ho had saved
a thousand lives.
The samo number of tho Crescent
also has the following item:
"At half-past 7, last evening, a dis?
charged United States soldier in?
formed Officer Lepage, of the Third
District police, that there was a ga?
thering of about 200 armed negroes
assembled some two miles below the
barracks. Lieut. Jacobs, in cora
mand of the police in the Third Dis?
trict, reported to the oinef that he
liad sent a patrol down to ascertain if
the statement was true. At ll o'clock,
last night, nothing additional had
men heard from Lient. Jacobs in re
ation to the matter."
It is stated that Dr. Dostie, a mem?
ber of the Convention in New Or
euns, who was mortally wounded,
received his first wound from a Mas?
sachusetts soldier, who declared that
the-whites should be the ruling race
