Wednesday Morning, Jone 16, 1869.
THE PRINTERS' NATIONAL CONVENTION.
the New York Herold, whoae editor
(whatever may be otherwise thought or
said of him,) is admitted on all baud? to
have a prodigiously long nose, thus dis?
courses of a decision of a Printers' Con?
vention: "Tho Printers' National Con?
vention at Albany,, by a vote ot 56 to 23,
laid on the table a resolution for abolish?
ing all distinctions of race and color in
the craft. This means that the distinc?
tion of color is to be enforced os an ob?
jection to the black mon, and as it is with
the printers so it will be with all the other
Trades' Unions. They will all be ar?
rayed against negro equality in their
workshops, and the administration before
long will hear from them al the polls."
BLACK NIGHTS OF THE WHITE CROSS
GUFFKE OM HORSEBACK-COLORED SWASH?
BUCKLER BEFORE A BLACK QUEEN or
BEAUTY-THU WEALTH AND FASHION OF
NIGGERDOM.-Toe Pittsburg Leader
gives the following account of a recent
tourney among the "cullud persuasion"
of that hamlet:
Tho annual tournament of the Knights
of the White Croes, a oolored organiza?
tion of this city, was held at Union
Park, Alleghauy City, on Thursday, apd
there Was a general tnrn-out of tho color-''
ed .population " of '.the two cities. The
organization is rather an aristocratie
one, and is composed of the colored
waiters apd barbers who claim to bc
from old Virginia.families, and look with
a sort ot contempt on tho Pennsylvania
Eaoh dusky knight was mounted on
the best steed his means could afford,
and was galy decorated with ribbons,
and flourished a tin spear, which gleamed
chivalrously in the sun-light. Colonel
George Washington Lovett had com?
mand of tho troops, and was assisted in
his arduous duties as manager of the
fourteen knights by one who bore the
extensive title on the programme of
Sergeant-nt-Arms George Washington
Gnshington JV Galloway, orator. -
When the* Sir Knights had all been
duly placed inside tho park, 'and put
through a short' cavalry drill .according
to i ufan try tactics, .they were drawn up
in the centre of the park; .sod Colonel
Lovett and Sergeantat-Artna Galloway
reviewed? the1 troops, ; The .oratorical
Sergean6-at-Arms then rode out in front
of tho lino, raised himself in-bis stirrups,
and delivered an oration, /.'.
: After the .^iroun^ferericq. of the-park
had been described sevoral^t^?s, the
Knights prepared'for th? tilting, and
made desperate attempts to carry off the
. ring, which was suspended from a pole
about eight feet from the ground. ! On
the first trial all the Knights missed, and
the band played "Oh, Carry rae Back,
Oh, Carry me Back, to Old Virginia's
Favoritism is generally aeon in award?
ing of all prizes, ami the tournament of
the Knights o?-.the White Crpes was no
exception to thc general rulo. The
Knight of the Lone Star was a married
man, while his competitor | was not so
unfortunate, and the judges decided that
marriage rendered it impossible for a
Knight of tho White Cross to win the
first Honor, and the privilege of crown?
ing tho Queen of Beauty was awarded to
the Knight of Liberty.
A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HERE AND
THERE.-The latest instance of the Presi?
dent's inordinate desire to obligo bis
personal friends is related by Judge
Brockins, of tho Territory of New Mexi?
co. It appears that a man who was form?
erly Speaker of the Territorial Legisla?
ture was appointed by Graut, and con?
firmed by the Senate postmaster ut Santa
Fe, New Mexico. He was ono of the
most prominent republicans in tho Terri
torynod was strongly backed by Chavez,
the Territorial delegate in Congress.
Upon hearing of his suspension, Judge
Brockins, who was here, went to tho
Postmaster-Generul to ascertain the
cause. He inquired what charges had
beou preferred against tho suspended
"Nono," Haid the Postmaster General.
"Then why was he suspended ?" said
"Well," said Creswell, with his usual
frankness, "all I know about it is this :
Gen. Sherman went to tho President and
said he wanted a place for an army officer,
who was left ont in the cold by the con?
solidation of tho army. The President
inquired what sort of a place he would
like to have. Sherman replied that the
officer was now in New Mexico, and he
would like to be postmaster at Santa Fe.
Grant said he believed the place was
filled. 'Put him out,' said Sherman, in
his impatient manner, 'ho's some politi?
cal bummer, I guess, and my man is u
moldier.' 'All right Sherman,' said
Grant, 'I'll do it' And so he did."
Judge Brockins is curious to know
what reasons the President will assign for
this suspension within thirty days after
the Sonate meets. It is said Grant bas
employed Sherman to writo tho reasons
for this particular case. . .
NEGRO CLERKS TO BE PLACED IN THE
POST OFFICE.-There was a rumor afloat
on tho streets yesterday that tho Messrs.
Gunn, who for some time past hnvo la?
bored faithfully and efficiently as clerks
in the post office, are to bo removed from
office on tho 1st of Jnly, and their places
fillod by negroes. Upon inquiry wc
learned enough to satisfy us that there
was a great deal of truth, in the rumor.

Hasans. Enrxons: Ia your IMUS of
June lfith I noticed an article purport?
ing io hate como from the cor. of tho
New ?YorJt World, in which say nome is
used in slandering Speaker F. J. Moses
and his father (the Chief Justice.) I
would be indeed sorry to lend my name
for snob a purpose
As for the Chief Justice, I have always
intertwined a high appreciation of his
ability and integrety, and look upon his
appointment to the present position os
one of the best in the State.
With reference to the money said to
hare been borrowed by Speaker Moses,
from sotne Northern guest, I know no?
thing qf the transaction. I have heard
of some rumor to that effeot, but can?
not give its origin or Touch for its truth.
As far as "ruy private business with Mr.
Moses is conserned, I clame ti to bo my
affair alone. Not even have my ex-cred?
itors a right to complain, much less a
corespondent of a New York paper. I
further clam? that the losses I met with
in Sumter (that affected my business)
was on larger transactions than th? few
thousand dollars that I fmay havo lost
with all my debtors of that place.

Yesterday was tho day appointed by

County and Legislative officers, and such
a scene has rarely been witnessed in
M*"- Taylor, the former Coroner, was
nominated for that office. He is a very
decent apothecary, at the intersection of
Ninth and Yine streets. During his
former occupancy of that post he showed
himself a mild, gentlemanlike person.
He was decidedly the best man nomi?
nated, as he is rarely seen drunk upon
the Btreets, and does not keep a tavern,
and, besides, has the advantage of being
able to write his own name.
The nominations -for City Treasurer,
Recorder of Deeds, Commissioner, etc.,
were made from fragments of the old
"ring" that has no often disgraced us.
During tho balloting for the Recorder of
Deeds a scene occurred that will long be
remembered ; the members shouting,

NEGROES IN THE WORKSHOPS.-Th
mechanics and workingmen hero, as wol
us throughout tho country, are becomin
justly alarmed at the evident purpose
of the administration. They see in th
persistent policy of introducing into th
workshops of the Government utterl
incompetent negroes, a design rather t
reduce the white operatives to a leve
with tho lowest class of humanity thai
to elevate tho negro to a higher office
They also see in the proclamation of th
Executive, making eight hours a day
work, only a bid to induce the whit
man in Government employment to sui
mit to tho degradation of negro con
punionship and social equality wherevi
tho power of tho Government can bo ej
ercised. They even seo further, an

ExxoxrrrvB CLEMENCY.-It is a melan?
choly faot that ina Chief Executive ol
thia State ii sending back to Charleston
th? most notorious gang of rogues and
itWESa breakers ever turned loose upon
a Community. An instance of the results
Of Executive clemency was recently
brought to our notice. A negro fellow,
well Known at police headquarters as
one of, th? most expert mid successful
rogues in the community, and who re?
joiced in tho euphonious cognomen of
"Bull Head James He?ry," was con?
victed of burglary and larceny at a late
term of the Sessions, and sent to the
Penitentiary for a term of years. It is
to be presumed that somebody made an
effort in behalf of Bull Head. At any
rate, he was deemed a worthy object for
the exorcise of the Executive clemency,
and accordingly about ten days ago, the
fraternity of rogues in Charleston was
rejoicing over the restoration to his old
field of work of the aforesaid Bull Head.
But Bull Head had evidently lost con?
siderable of his expertness during his
forced retirement, and was nabbed in
almost the first job he undertook. It ia
to be trusted that a little moro varo
will be observed by tho Governor in the
exercise of the pardoning power. We
have in Charleston now more rogues than
we can contend with, and when we aro
fortunate enough to send some of them
off, it is extremely unpleasant and very
taxing to onr hen roosts, to have them
returned to us, novi homines.

CHIEF JUSTICE CHASE IN RALEIGH.-A
Washington telegram says: I ?
. Information has been received here of
an unpleasant difficulty between Chief
Justice Chase, and the bar of Raleigh,
North Carolina. The Chief Justice states
that he was shown what purported to bo
a protest drawn up, and signed by many
of the leading members of tho bar. On
tho opening of tho court he addressed tho
members bf the bar present, stating that
the court hod aeon the protest,' and con?
sidered it a contempt, and that tho clerk
would be ordered to servo upon each
member of the bar who signed.it, a rule
to show causo why they should not be si?
lenced until they purged themselves of
the contempt. This caused much con?
fusi?n among the lawyers, and they left
the court to confer as to tho course
proper for them. The calendar was then
called, aud tho lawyers whose names were
in tho protest were not allowed to nppear
in their cases.
A radical editor has a Southern ex?
change that is always filled with adver?
tisements of sheriffs' sales. Referring
to tho matter, he gives expression to the
belief that the said exchaugo is published
in a Democratic community. He is al?
together mistaken. Having established
a radical court, and elected a radical
sheriff in that part of the South, the car?
pet-baggers have commenced plunder?
ing tho decent people "according to
law." The graceless scoundrels stoic all

valuables of the "horrid" rebels some?
time ago. The thieves are now stealing

A most remarkable case of conformity
to hotel rules, at some personal incon?
venience, is thus related by the Cleve?
land Plaindealer : A guest at one of our
hotels, the other evening, was discovered
by the proprietor rather tenderly embra?
cing the chambermaid. The landlord
rebuked him somewhat angrily, and :
wanted to know the reason of such con?
duct. "Simply obeying the rules of the
house," said tho guest, pointing to a card
tacked to the ro.>m door. "Don't it
read, 'Any neglect of servants should bo
reported at the office ?' I don't want to
be reported nt tho office for neglect of
servants, do I ?"
AFTER-DINNER NATO -Many persons
are in the habit of sleeping for half an
hour or an hour immediately after din?
ner. This is a bad practice. Ten mi?
nutes sleep before dinner is worth more
than an hour after. It rests and re?
freshes, and prepares the system for
vigorous digestion. If aleop cnn be
taken after dinner, it should be in the
sitting posture, as the horizontal posi?
tion is unfavorable to healthful diges?
tion. Let those who need rest and sleep
during the day take it before dinner, in?
stead of after, and they will lind that
they will feel botter, and that their di?
gestion will bo improved thereby.
