The Tra? Capital for Boya.
The commercial failures in the bu?
siness metropolis of the Union, and
tho disastrous consequences -which
follow them, not only to employers,
but employees, elicits from the New
York Sun an editorial, giving some
good advico to paronte, the main fea
turo of which is that boys should be
taught . some trade or handicraft.
Every day, the Sun says, there are in?
stances of men slipping from the
highest rounds to tho lowest ono in
the ladder of wealth. Business men
find themselves engulphed in the sea
I of financial embarrassment, from
'which they emerge with nothing but
. their personal resources to depend
upon for a living. Clerks, snlesmen
and others, find themselves thrown
out of employment, with no prospect
of speedily obtaining places which
they aro competent to fill, and with
no other means of gaining a liveli?
hood. Tho Sun thus states the caso
with moro immediate refereuco to tho
unemployed young men and the un?
fortunate business men of that city:
"How many men there aro in this
oity to-day, somo of whom havo fami?
lies dependent upon them for sup?
port, who bewail tho mistake they
made in not learning useful trades in
their younger da3's? There aro hun?
dreds of them. There are men hero
who have seen better days, men of
education and business ability, who
envy tho mechanic who has a sure
support for himself and family in his
handicraft. Paronts mako a great
mistake when they impose upon tho
brain of their boy tho task of sup?
porting him without preparing his
hands for emergencies."
There is much truth in tho fore?
going paragraph, and its inculcations
are peculiarly applicable at this time
to the boys of tho South. Thousands
and tens of thousands of the people,
who wero ablo to givo their boys a
liberal education, have been reduced
to comparativo poverty, and their
sons not having been trained to work,
aro now at a loss, however willing
they may bo to enter some Held of
. industry to obtain employment. As
our practical cotemporary says, "no 1
man is poor who is the master of a
trade." Tho South needs reconstruc?
tion, not merely political, hut mate?
rial. Her towns and cities, to a great
extent, have to bo rebuilt; her agri?
cultural implements to be replaced;
her railroads and other enterprises to
be renewed and reen pointed; and in
all this great work, she will need, for
years to come, not only the bone and
biuow, but tho mechanical skill of
many artisans and tradesmen. If she
cannot procure them at home, thoy
must come from abroad. Which po?
licy is tho best, it is easy to deter- j
Tlic Xcrrt of Restoration.
The New Hampshire Daily Union,
published at Manchester, in that
Stato, says that never, during tho
last thirty years, except a short time I
during tho carly days of tho war, has
tho cotton and woolen manufacturing
business been in such a depressed
condition. The mills are running at j
a loss in Lowell, Lawrence, and most
of the other manufacturing towns in
Massachusetts, and throughout New
England. The Union says that the
Manchester mills and print works '
have goods on hand unsold to tho
amount of $2,000,000. Tho sanio
.slate of things exists in other es?
tablishments-one manufactory hav?
ing sunk $10,000 within ?: few
In addition to this statement of the
factories, it i.-, : aid thai the shoe busi?
ness, at Lynn, and other largo shoe
manufacturing town.-, in New Eng?
land, is in a very depro&sed condi?
tion, as compared with what it has
boca in former years, when orders
for shoes carno in thick nnd fas>t from !
the South and West.
Tho paper noticing thia unfortu?
nate condition of affairs, attributes it
to th 3 chaotic state of tho politick j
affairs of the country. North and
South, East and West aro all begin?
ning to sorely feel the need of resto?
ration and peace. Lot the people of
all sections remove-overy obstruction,
either in men or in parties, to this
STROSO TESTIMONY.-In a speech
delivered recently at Portsmouth,
New Hampshire, Fred. Douglas said
that all the white men were alike
responsible for slavery and equally
guilty, and the black ainu's pre?
tended friends among them were no
better than the rest. He said ho was
once pulled out of n coach in Boston
for the fault cf being a black man.
