THE "HOWARD UUION."
With tli i s issue I begin tha regular pub
licalion of a weekly paper in Glasgow, en
tilled The Howard Unioh. As its name
indicates, it will be zealously devoted to
the cause of the Union, believing that the
people never oommitted a graver political
sin than when Ihey allied themselves with
Treason and Rebellion. But a brighter
dny is dawning. The success of the Fede
ral arms, and the return of reason and re
flection to an Intelligent people, will soon
work out their natural and booeficcnt re
suits. As a consequonce, a speedy return
to the peaceful end industrial pursuits of
life may at once be expected and in lieu
of the destructive implements of war will
be substituted those of the husbandman, the
mechanic, and the business man. With
this great end accomplished, the permanent
prosperity and peace of our people will be
secured, and they will then fully realize
that their best and truest interests are in
tertwined with loyalty and devotion to their
Government. The welfare of our people
now rests iu their own hands. Will they
not improve it as becomes a Christianized
enlightened and potriotio people ?
In the conduot of the Unton I shall en
ileavor, to the best of my ability, to advance
the interests of the people among whom it
circulates. In an intelligent and wealthy
community like this, the success of a we'l
conducted paper should not be o matter of
doubt. It will be a source of usefulness
and convenience to them. With their pros,
perity and growth it will be intimately iden
tified. I shall endeavor to fill it with such
matter as will be of interest and profit I
them, and to make it an aid to cement,
rather than rupture asunder, the social
band,, so badly shattered by the unfortunate
events of the past few years.
The subscription price to the paper will
be Two Dollars per year, or One Dollar
for six months, invariably in advance.
With this short Introductory, which
deem sufficient, I nter upon my labors
with energy and "confidence, respectfully
soliciting from the people that support an
enterprise of this character deserves.
Now that the devastating war is about
over) and the bright angel of peace is bring
ing his rich blessings to our people, busi
ness of all descriptions is being resumed
with forever activity. The shelves of our
merchants are all ocoupied with tnerchan
diza suitable to the wants or the country.
Our business houses are now filled, and
there is a pressing demand tor more. Sev
eral of the best business houses in town
having been destroyed by fire, wa learn
that steps are being taken to rebuild them.
Our mechanics are busily plying their evo-
oations, while our farmers are tilling their
soil with a feeling of safety and assurance
that they will not be despoiled of the fruits
of their labor. Numbers of steamers daily
pass up and down the river, distributing
their rich cargoes throughout the country,
A general feeling of confidence and buoy'
ancy exists, not heretofore felt during the
We have a rich country unsurpassed in
soil, on both sides of the river, possess'
ing all the elements of material and social
progress. The richness of the soil long
sinee secured an industrious farming popu
lation, who Have received liberal returns
for their labor. Numbers of our citizens
who had left are returning, and we hope
0011 to have a re-united society. We may
then safely anticipate aeareer of prosperity,
ssociated with the other blessings of life,
unsurpassed by any oilier section ol lue
For the Howard Union.
PETROLEUM REAR GLASGOW.
A good deal has been said about the dis
covery ot 1'elroieum in the oounues 01
Bates, Cats, Lafayette and Saline on the
South side of the Missouri river, and Ray
and Carrol on the north side, and it may be
matter of interest to your readers to know
that the same indications are found in this
vicinity. On the lands of Messrs, B. W.
nil 3. Rf . Lewi, within" three miles of
Glasgow, the sand stone, saturated with
Petroleum, is found iu a ravine, and on
an application of heat readily ignites and
emits the odor peculiar to that substanoe
Favorable indications are also found on the
farm of Mh John Miller, .about two miles
from town. The rock in which Petroleum
is usually found commonly known as the
second sand stone orops out in that lo
cality and in many others, In this neighbor
hood. Suit springs and coal abound, and
the general features of the country are
more favorable, perhaps, to large deposits
than those in the counties above mentioned.

shape of taxes or tithes, should be distribu

Determined to adhere to the advance
subscription system, we deemed it best to
postpone the effort to get subscribers until
after the issue of the first number, knowing
the unwillingness of the people to pay their
money for the paper before it had started.
We therefore send this number to hundreds
of the citizens of Howard, Saline and Char
iton, with the solicitation that they sub'
scribe for it.
Our field for the selection of a variety
of news and miscellaneous reading matter

SCHOOL FOR COLOREDCHILDREN,
We notice that Mrs. Johnson,' a lady
from Kansas City, has commenced a school
for the little colored folks, in which she
teaches the " young idea bow to shoot " its
way into the labyrinths and mysteries of
an elementary education.
As Mrs. Johnson is dependent on her
own exertions to support herself, invalid
husband nnd child, we hope she may suc
ceed in her laudable enterprise to her en
We trust that the prejudices of all those
who have more "nigger-on-the-brain" than
humanity, will be allayed, because there
are certainly no class of people, who more
richly deserve the benefits of an education,
than the colored people of Missouri, Many
very unjust and cruel remarks have al
ready been made, in reference to this com
mendable and laudable enterprise. The
school will be protected by the kind wish
es and efforts of all good and loyal citizens.
Instead of throwing obstacles in (lie way of
such efforts, people should do all they can to
give them encoui agement. Because a child
or an adult has a colored skin, that does not
signify that they do not have a mind, and
that that mind should not be cultivated and
enlightened, as well as if it was in a white
skin. No on 3 denies a white person, how
ever little or great the mind ma) be, the
right to an education, as high as it is pos
sible to acquire ; why then, should the same
be denied the colored person. G

those of you who did not send messengers
to that meeting will, perhaps, not know
where the next Association is to be held.

feel it my duty to state that I had made the
engagement for printing the Minutes, but
Bro. Elliott, the proper Clerk of the Asso
ciation, has not furnished the manuscript,
(no doubt he has good reasons for it.) I
wrote to him twice, but up to this time
have received no reply. I therefore, after
consulting with the presiding Moderator,
avail myself of the only means left mo to
furnish you the long-looked for information,
hoping that you will send up a large and
full representation, and that you will not
be kept back on account of the sad troubles
which have so injuriously affected the cause
of our divine Lord and Master, that many
of our churchos now only " have a name to

twenty five thouaand. These are the deaths
alone. From this number we may deduct
some forty thousand on account of ordinary
mortality had war not existed, and then
have left 285:000 dead. These are the
deud only on one side. If we suppose a
mortality of 175,000 on the rebel side, we
have a total of 460,000 who have perished
in the war. Supposing among the wounded
and diseased of the survivors that one hall
are permanently disabled, we must add at
least 000,000 more to the number of vio
tims, making a total of over one million of
human beings whose death. or uselessness
while living may be ascribed to this war
