Tho colored pcoplo of tho city are
considurublv agitated becnuso of the cruel
treatment, by Mr. Talford, of a young col
ored woman, becnuso she would not deny
that sho had heard what she actually did
hear. As stated in tho published
proceedings of the meeting
held in the African M. E.
church a few nights sinco, ono of
the white women teachers in the school
for colored children, while whipping a lit
tle boy, become enraged, nnd snid sho
wished till tho " negro children were hack
in slavery with their musters." Mus Al
ice .luckton, an intelligent colored girl of
mnrk, and spoke of it outsido the school
houso nnd after school hours. Word camo
to the ears of Mr. Talford
that Miss Jackson was "making n luss "
about tlio ma'.ter. nnd he took her to task
for it. Sho would not say that she had not
heard it, and as before stated, was severely
whipped. Now, in the firs, place, tho
whito woman who will allow herself to be
come so enraged ns to ufo such language,
Is not it fit person to have control of a
school, whether of black or whito children ;
and in the second plnce, what business is it
of this "great I nm",Talford, who has been
"Moshing 'round" among the darkies of
this city for several years, what Miss
Jnckson or nny other scholar says outside
of school hours? If his position ns prin
cipal of tho colored school confers upon
him nuthorlty to dictate to tho scholars un
der him how they shall walk, talk,
(nt and drink, as well out of school
as in school, tho fact ought
to be muds known to them at onco so that
they may govern themselves accordingly.
Talford, at host, is a blatherskite, and
the last person who should bo placed nt
tho liend ot n school department. Tho
whito iiiuii who accepts a position in a
colored school has no respect for himself,
and cannot hope to command tho respect
of the negroes. '1 ho negroes, or a great
majority of them, profor to have their
children taught by teachers of their own
race, knowing full well thnt nn intelligent
eulored man would take moro interest in
tlio moral and intellectual welfare of their
children, than nn ignorant white bummer,
ctu.'h as Talford, could.
