For the young lire that hath flod .

On a ncpukhre thou wilt lay the bloom
Ot the flr-t aweet rose of Juno.

PROVIDE FOR THY HOUSEHOLD.
Tliis is it divine coiiiniuin, ono tluit we
all should ol.cy. One of the wisest and
best ways that we can make a provision fur
our household is to insure our life in some
safe insurance organization, for the benefit
of those who it is our duty to provide for,
a better investment than in any savings
bank. Therefore wc would call your at
tention to The Widows' and Orphans' Mu
tual Aid Society of Cairo, Ills., organized
in July, 1S7T. A branch office at llarris
burg, Ills. It is a home institution, found
ed by our neighbors, and organized entirely
upon beneficiary principles as a help and a
friend to the widows and orphans.
It is safe and sound a.s any institution of
the kind in existence; can never fail or
It has no salaried oJlieers. Each mem
ber is an agent, and has a vote in the man
agement of the society.
It has now a membership of three thou
sand of the best of citizens, who are scat
tered through almost every State in the
Union and the Canadas, aud is still increas
ing in public favor and patronage.
It is founded upon the most equitable and
economical plan of other institutions of the
kind yet brought to the public notice.
It is the cheapest insurance of any other;
so low that there are none so poor but who
could carry a lolicy in it.
Then come and take out a policy on your
life, thereby making a wise provision for
vour household. Help to swell llarrisburg
branch to one hundred members.
For any information you may desire of
the Widows' and Orphan's Mutual Aid
Society apply to any member or to the un
dersigned. J. W. Mitch em.,

THE CAUSES OF THE NEOKO EXODUS STATED,
AND CLUES FOR EXISTINO EVILS SCO
(i EST ED.
The Mississippi Valley Labor Convention
that concluded its labors in Vicksburg, last
ednesday, was composed of the leading
white and black men of the South, and as
they all agreed as to the causes of the exo
dus as set forth in the report of the com
mittee on resolutions, we are bound to be
licve tluit the causes are truly stated. This
being true, in what a ridiculous and unen
viable position does it leave the Northern
Republicans who have been shrieking,
trom the first that the exodus was the work
of the bull-dozer's Bowie knife aud the
white-Ieaguer'sshotgun I The report reads as
follows, aud was adopted by a unani
mous vote of the convention:
W'J have inquired into the causes which
hiive given rise to the recent exodus of our
colored population us far ns possible with
in the limited time allowed, ami u hilo ii ii un
causes are ililncul tlo ascertain, owing ex
ceptional causes of all kinds brought to
our attention, we believe the following to
include those which may be considered
proximate; -The low price of cotton nnd
partial failure of the cron of the nnst venrt
tho irrational system of planting adopted
in some sections, whereby labor was de
prived of the intelligence to direct and the
tho presence of economy to make it profit
able; a vicious system of credit fostered' by
laws permitting laborers and tenants to
mortgage crops before they are grown or
even pumted; apprehension on the part
of many colored people, produced by in
sidious reports circulated among them that
their civil and political rights are en
dangered or likely to be; hurtful, falso ru
mors diligently disseminated, that by emi
L'rntiiiir to Kansas the colored neonlu would
obtain land, mules, money, etc., from the
government without cost to themselves and
become independent farmers. Many re
tail country store keepers' have engaged in
tho business of selling whisky to laborers
and tenants, thereby corrupting their mor
als, rendering their labor insutliclent and
destroying tho pleasant relations between
them and their landlords and employers. It
is n mutter of astonishment to your com
initteo that the colored people could bo in
duced to credit tho Idle stories circulated of
a promised land where tliolr want' would
bo supplied nnd their independence secured
without exertion on their part. It was go

lity to credit them, and yet evidence of aa
uiiuouoieu cnaracter was turnished your
committee as to this matter. It is one of
the factors in the movement, which we can
not now forecast.

landlords of the States here represented to
devise and adopt some contract system with
labors and tenants by which both parties
will receive the full benefit of labor gov
erned by intelligence nnd economy.
. Resolved, That this Convention docs
affirm that the colored race has been placed
by the constitution' of the United States
and the States here represented and the
laws thereof on a plane of absolute legal
equality with tho white race, and does de
clare that the colored race shall be accorded
the practical enjoyment of all rights, civil
and political, guaranteed by said constitu
tion and laws.
Resolved, That to this end tho mem
bers of this convention pledge themselves
to use whatever power and influence they
possess to protect the colored race rgainst
all dangers in respect to the fair expression
of their wills at the polls, which they appre
hend may result from fraud, intimidation
or bulldozing on the part of the whites; and
as there can be no liberty of action with
out freedom of thought, demand that all
elections shall be free and fair, and that no
repressive measures shall be employed by
colored people to deprive their own race of
the fullest freedom in the exercise of the
highest right of citizenship.
