Tenses, which always occur on the third
week of September, will commenee on
Wednesday next, 16th, Friday, 18th, and

LOGIC FOR YOUNG LADIES.-NOW that
the position of females in society is claim
ing wide-spread attention, everything that
qualifies her to discharge the duties of her
sphere-whethler that be the old or new one
-should receive due consideration. With
out endorsing the extreme views of those
who would assign woman a position that
unsexes, and makes her anything but a
fitting companion for man, we still think
that there has been great remissness in
many points relating to her education.
The splendid plea of Bishop Dupanloup,
published in the leading languages of Eu

lic.attention on this subject, and placing it
high in the code governing Christian com

PAROCHIAL SgnCooLs.-These institutions
have been assuming great importance in
this comfulnity of late years. They are
favorites with parents, because Catholic
instruction and training is secured to their
children without their having to send them
as boarders to some, remote institution.
They are of the safest character as regards
the care of the children themselves, for the
very good reason that they are under the
immediate eye of the pastor, whose zeal is
guaranteed by the labor and resgonsibiity
he must undergo to sustain his school.
They are great favorites with the pastor,
too, for they are his greatest auxiliary in
.the religious instruction of his young flock,
and id thoroughly piceparing them for the
proper reception of the sacraments.
Some of our readers in the Third District
may scarcely be aware of the excellent
establishment of this kind which Rev. C.
Moynihan has founded in connection with
his parish Church of St. Peter. If they
will take the trouble to pass that way at.
some spare moment, they can soon satisfy
themselves of the succesofal working of the
institution. They will see hundreds of
bright, intelligent children, rapidly pro
gressing in mind and manner under the
watchful energy of Mr. Jovian, superin
tendent, aided by a full corps of most
effiient assistants - principally ladies.
They will be surprised to find that their
children, 'especially the younger ones,
might progress as rapidly here as at some
other school costing three times as much in
its terms, and perhaps not so couverient in
many respects. It will be seen by reference
to our advertising columns that not only
the English branches are taught, but-also
French and music.

It is useless to say that such a proceeding
would not be permitted by the party leaders
because it would react against them at the
North. Their history shows that the most
overwhelming proof would be forthcoming
to convince the Northern public that the
whites were the aggressors, and brought
the ruin on themselves.
One of our cotemporaries thinks that
the leaders referred to would not permit
things to go so far as the actual destruction
of the goose that lays their golden eggs;
but when the cacklings of that goose are
about to wake up the nation to its danger,
there is no telling what they might do.
Besides, though these leaders might not
intend a literal execution of their threat,

Tell them that much of the property here
is owned by foreigners-Germans, French,
English, Italians, etc.-and that at any rate
the destruction of their interest would be
highly unjust. They will reply, at least
mentally, that party exigency cannot hesi
tate at trifles. You might take them
through the histories of all great civil wars,
where States, cities, and families were
divided against themselves; you might
show them that such an atrocity was never
perpetrated, even when the streets have
lowed with blood-but men who, with
unblushlag impudence, fasten themselves
like leeches on a community which openly
despises and abhors them, would rot be

Nothing can more clearly demonstrate,
than such threats, two points that ought to
be very damaging to any party which
makes the least pretension to justice and
reason. They show, on the part of white
leaders, a total absence of property interest
in the city which they pretend to repre
sent, but contemplate destroying with such
cool complacency. On the part of negtro
followers in the Legislature, such threats
show, as the New York Herald has re
marked, the total unfitness of that race to
We have little confidence that any mo

community, the presence of which may
baffle this amiable mood of our imported

THE CHRISTIAN BROTHEoRS.-Persons re
cently arriving in the city may not be
aware that the Christian Brothers have
already opened-their two institutions, the
St. Mary's College, on Foucher street, and
the St. Vincent's Academy, on N.poleon
Avenue. For those who reside in looplIties
contignous to either of these institutions,'it
is unnecessary to do more than call their
attention to the fact. The. reputation of
that excellent educational order is so wide
spread that their schools need no reconm
It is but natural.that men who devote
their whole existence to the art of teaching
should eventually acquire remarkable pro
ficiency in it. The experience of one gen
eration is handed down to the next, with
its lessons, and again improved- upon by
men who labor with the enthusiasm which
love alone can arouse, and which is far
beyond the inspiration of money. Their pro
fession is-not-the transient make-shbift,f a
provisional business, but the chosen aveea
tion of a life; their proficiency is not the
forced result of a mercenary policy, but the
requirement of a religious duty. We all
know the difference in results effected by
one who loves his work and by a drudge.
In addition to the gratification felt by
parents at seeing their children interested
in their studies, earnest in their efforts, and
successful in results, ie the, still higher
satisfaction of knowing that they are with
men who can form them to obedience and
discipline; that they will be taught that
self-restraint which possibly the fondness
of parents might have deprived them of at
home. We daily see the melancholy wrecks
of noble natures, highly cultivated and re
fined, but deficient in self-control. These
have had no-moral discipline whatever, and
not much genuine mental discipline, since
their acquirements have been obtained
rather on the spur-of exciting occasions
than by sustained and laborious effort.
The Christian Brothers strive not merely
to impart kdowledge to their pupils, but to
give them an earnest mental and.moral
training, by which they will know practi
cally both how to endure labor and to resist
self-indulgence. Why should not moral
education be as practical a science as that
of the mind, it being, without doubt, more
important and more noble I This is the
view taken of it by the good Brothers, to
both the temporal and eternal advantage of
