Oar Colored Popalntl
Wo do not believe that, iu the his?
tory of the world, snob, a radical
change in society, as that of the
emancipation ol the slaves of the
Booth, ever took place with so little
disturbance or social disorder. Twen?
ty-five years ago, had it been an*
nouncod that general emancipation
would occur without revolt or blood?
shed, the man uttering suoh a pre?
diction would have been set down aa
a dreaming visionary. The Baltimore
Sun says that "nothing could h uve
been better than tho conduct of the
Southern slaves daring the late war,
and, considering the abrupt change
brought about in their social posi?
tion, their new-found liberty was used
with singular decorum and modera?
As regards this State, wo can cheer?
fully endorse the commendatory re?
marks of the Sun. It is true, proba?
bly, that our colored people bavebeen
lesa tampered with by political mis?
sionaries than those of other States
on the great traveling thoroughfares
of the country; and it is further to be
noted that our prominent citizens,
commencing with Qeu. Hampton,
have manifested an interest in the
wcll-boing, advancement and im?
provement of thc freedmen, which
has naturally begotten in them a feel?
ing of respect and confidonco iu their
former owners, which has produced
the favorable condition of allah's now
existing .a this State. We sincerely
hopo that this state of things will
continue, and that tho whites will
show, by their efforts to aid tho freed?
men, in tho great interests of reli?
gion and education, that they are the
truo friends of thc rnco which have
been born and roared among them.
Tho great danger to our colored
populatiou is, that they may be mis?
led by desiguiug politicians. They
ought to tako it for granted that their
friends aud neighbors nt home have
a dooper interest iu their wolfare
thau any strangers-no matter to
what political party they belong
can possibly have. Tho labor of the
freedman is ns necessary to the de?
velopment of the resources of the
South, as is tho capital cr brain
work of tho other race. Hand in
hand, they must labor together for
tho recuperation of our desolated
sec lion, and the prosperity of the
owners of tho soil must also bring
prosperity to those they employ.
If thc freedmen of the South de?
serve credit for their conduct, no
less do thc whites. As far as we have
observed, tho latter haye been liberal
in contributing to every enterprise
for the elevation und amelioration of
tho colored people. Churches and
school-houses havo sprung up with
wonderful rapidity. "Even when la?
boring under tho immense loss en?
tailed upon them by emancipation,
and by tho destruction of their pro?
perty incidental to war, every Chris?
tian denomination in thc South has
doue its shore in giving aid to the
colored people in founding their own
church organizations. Aud to this
policy must be attributed the reign
of social order, which, for over two
years, has prevailed in this State.
If this favorable condition of tho
relations now oxisting between tho
two races should continue, it will uot
bo many years beforo its good results
will bo visible in the universal pros?
perity of tho South, lt will require
patience, forbearance and endurance,
but, in tho end, the good will como.
Our advico to both races is to abjuro
party politics, and to work harmo?
niously together for the weal of tho
South. No party, wo believe, ever
boncfitted tho mero partisan, and
whilo a few of tho leaders may bavo
obtained offico and spoils, ninety
nine out of a hundred of their fol?
lowers havo suffered loss, both in
time and money.

BusauN AMipwuu-Secretary Se?
ward has just made publio a letter
'from Allen Frances, United ?tates
Consul, and a number of citizens of
the United States at Victoria, Van?
couver Island, congratulating the
country upon tho Bussinn American
purchase. The writers say that, from
actual contiguity to the acquired ter?
ritory, they are able to Btate that the
purobnso is of the greatest impor?
tance, and add:
The climate of the territory West
of the Gasende range of mountains,
and up to sixty degrees North lati?
tude, and of tho numerous islands
bordering its shores, is much milder,
both summer and winter, and much
more pleasant than that of any por?
tion of the New Englnud States or
Its immenso forests of pine are of
incalculable value, tho timber being
much superior to that of Oregon or
Washington Territory, while tho
numerous harbors along its coasts
will afford tho greatest facilities for
its shipment. Tbero aro known to
exist within tho limits of tho pur?
chased territory many valuable mine?
rals, among which are gold, silver,
copper, lead, iron, aud extensive beds
of coal, which will furnish an ample
field for labor and the investment of
capital. Many beautiful und rich
.specimens of .J] the minerals enume?
rated aro now in this city, which have
beeu brought from that Territory.
Tho agricultural capabilities of tho
country are, no doubt, inferior to
that of tho States and Territories
lying South of it; still there aro large
bodies of land known to exist, so ful?
as the country bus been explored,
capable of producing many of thc
vegetables commou to temperate
climes of great excellence, and iu the
greatest abundance, ns well as most
of tho cereals.
Commercially, the new territory
must bo of great value, on account of
its comparative proximity to many
of the teeming populations of Asia,
and its possession ot most of the na?
tural productions iu demand by them
must ultimately create an extensive

This is another indication of the
"good timo coming" of woman's
equality. That there are many avo?
cations in which women might serve
with equal advantage t-> tho public
with the men, wo have never doubted,
lint a long-established belief in the
inordinate curiosity of the sex, und
an immemorial . scepticism of tho
ability of a woman to keep a secret,
have combined to make it problemati?
cal whether the post office is, in all
respects, proper field for their exer?
tions. Horrid mon will not bo per?
fectly coufident that tho fair post?
masters (they ure not known ns post?
mistresses at the Post Office Depart?
ment) will ?:?>t ii : i ?1 out what is in tho
letters, and afterwards retail it us
village gossip; and then, thc old joke
about deranging the J.J tit's is familiar
to everybody. We eau imagine no
severer trial of official virtue than a
youug girl, serving as pod muster,
being called upon to sort und hand
over to her lover and her rival tho
letters of a tender correspondence;
?nd if thu fair South Carolinians can
stand this test, they may safely bo
entrusted with tho right of suffrage,
and with thc duty of legislation into
PAY THU PUBMC DICHT.-Thc pro?
position to pay the nat ional debt im?
mediately-all in greenbacks-seems
to bc meeting with general and uni?
versal favor. Tho following, from
tho Washington (Ohio) Register, is a
fair specimen of tho voice of tho
country press. It says:
Wo aro ia favor of paying off the
public debt in greenbacks. If they
aro good enough for the farmers,
mechanics and busiuess mon of thc
nation, why arc they not good enough
for tho rich men of tho country? If
thc public debt was paid oil'in green?
backs, tb#entirewealth of thecouutry
would be brought upon the tax dupli?
cate, aud every man would be required
to pay taxes according to his wealth.
There would bo no rich men exempt
from taxation, while drawing interest
iu gold on Government bauds, while
the masses of the people wore doing
business with a rag currency. Tho
nation would save millions every year
in interest, and millie*.'.s moro in pre?
miums upon gold wherewith to pay
interest to bond-hold ors. The taxes
of tho people would bo lessened, and
all tho greenbacks destroyed by acci?
dent or other causo would inure to
tho benefit of the Cfo vern ment. Pay
tho public debt immediately-pay it
in greenbacks, and let all thc citizens
have tho same kind of money uud all
pay taxes aliko.

The progress that baa been made
in Control Park, say? the New York.}
Herald, omeo its no tu m euee ment soma
yeors ago up to the present time, is
something ttarvollous. Here woe o
rooky wilderness, part marsh, p*r>
waste, with rocky boulders jutting
up from amidst the dwarf herbage.
Not teu yours back, many a New
Yorker would go ont to where the
Park now ia for a country ride, and
when Thirtieth street was passod
they had left tho "din of city and
busy haunts of men" far behind
them. The hands of man have been
as busy as tho effects of nature, and
the old prover!) has been exemplified
that man made the city if God made
the country. Tho wilderness adjacent
to Bloomingdale has been transform?
ed into a Peri'sparadiso-a garden of
gardens for the present and future
generations of Now Yorkers. The
old wilderness exists no longer.
BKAZIL.-Tho cable report which
wo had some two months ago of the
abolition of slavery in tho Empire of
Brazil, was subsequently found to bo
in advance of the event. But tho
emancipation movement has gone so
for that the Emperor Don Pedro II,
in his recent speech at tho opening
of the Brazilian Chambers, gave ut?
terance to the following sentence:
"The servile element of tho Emitir?
cannot fail to merit opportunely your
consideration, acting iu a manner to
caro for thc high interests attached to
emancipation, by respecting actual
property, and without giving a pro?
found shock to our maiu sourco of
industry-agriculture." The differ?
ent tenure on which negro slavery
exists iu Brazil from that on which it j
formerly existed iu the United States,
moy be judged by the fact that tho 1
head of thc State eau utter himself !
in this way. Imagine one of our l
Presidents speaking in this woy prior
to lt???. It may he considered cor
tain that Brazilian emancipation will
be effected peaceably and without
difficulty.-JVe>o York Times.
