A visit to the colored schools of the
city yesterday revealed the fact that tlie at
tendance has fallen off very materially with
in the last month. In one room there la i
difference of thirty in the number attend
ing hut month and the number in thoir
seats this month. The decrease is most
noticeable In the lower rooms and the pri
mary department. The cold weather and
the holidays are blamed for this, and prob
ably with good reason. It is said that the
same state of things prevailed in the color
ed school in former years.

A largely attended meeting, under the
auspices of the Manhattan Circle of the
Fenian Brotherhood, was held in New
York some days ago to take action on the
execution of O'Donnell. Aftsr inflamma
tory speeches by the more enthusiastic
members, resolutions were adopted calling
on Irishmen all over the world to avenge
the death of O'Donnell, and pledging the
members of the Brotherhood to renewed
euergy in striking "England, the enemy of
Ireland, who sets at naught the law of hu
manity and civilization."
The case of Parrot vs. Freeze was given
to the jury about noon yesterday, and after
short deliberation a verdict was given in
favor of the plaintiff, his damage being fixed
at one cent. The amount of damages sued
for was $180. The costs which the par
ties to it have to pay, aside from their law
yer's fees, amount to upwards of $400; the
costs the people have been put to in try
ing this case twice, will reach about half
that sum; and all for what' a single,
littlo, old copper cent.
The Wall Street News advises "my
son " to wait a nuie to "go siow. "Any
idiot can buy stocks and futures, but it
takes a long head to buy what is certain to
return big profit. Fight shy of railroad
stocks. Don't think of investing in silver
mines. Keep clear of wheat and corn and
cotton. Don't fool with canal shares,
county bunds, navigation stocks, nor flying
machines, (nor, it might have added, com
bined water and land traversing, four
wheeled, cooked-lobster-colored moDstrosi
tie", such as was exhibited in the
Ohio here a short time sgo.)
Don't expect to make money too fast.
Go into business with an undertaker for a
year and let the market settle. Start a
corner grocery and get some idea of how
codfish fluctuates. Establish a bucket shop
and team how to manipulate the market.
Open a liver-pad foundry and learn pati
ence, humility and how to skin your fellow-
man." And Mr. Oberly, commenting upon
this item in the Bl'iomingtou Bulletin, says
the advice of the Nes is good, and advises
his son to act upon it. Congratulations
would seem to be in order, both for Mr, Ob
erlv and lor the gr-r-and old Democratic
For some years past there has been a
growing custom among merchants and
business men of presenting their customers
and patrons with small presents on Christ
mas. This practice has been carried to
such an extent by enterprising merchants
who wish to appear more generous than
their neighbors, that it has become sn
enormous drain upon their stocks. Feel
ing that it is a useless extravagance caused
only by rivalry, the undersigned merchants
have signified their intention to give away
no presents on Christmas day.
