THE CHANGE OK THE LEAF.
The time is eomi iif; when the green of
the lenf, beautiful, cheering and restful to
the eye, will give way to the dazzling,
variegated brilliancy of the fall, when the
frost king will move about in the stillness
of the night, and deftly lay his colors on
the lumlscape, until each mountain side
shall le hung with curtains more gor
geous than the famous (Jolx-lin tapestry
and each valley spread with carets
gayer and richer than the looms of Tur
key or of Persia can produce. The nim
ble fingers of the chilly painter shall so
slowly and silently wield his brush that
its progress cannot lie noted ; yet it
grows, and each morning unfolds a
brighter or a deecr glow, a richer or
more splendid blending or contrast ol
colors, until, some keen frosty morning,
the canvass receives its finishing touches,
and the landscajie stands revealed in a
gorgeousncss the eye can scarcely com
prehend as earthly, and tongue and pen
alike want word or thought to even
faintly delineate. Nature has crowned
her work of the vear. With the resurrec
tion of the spring she clothed the new
bom season with the tender living green.
and decked it with the lieauties of the
flowers, and gave the added wealth ol
rich anil luscious fruits, and made the
summer, the grown maternal summer, the
vigorous sister of the spring. Then came
the chilling autumn and approaching
death of the seasons of life and growth
and over the fading and the living forms
nature throws her gorgeous mantle
as token that death is not to lie enrobed
with gloom, that its features shall not
be all repulsive, and that the change in
fact is splendid transition from one form
of lieing to another. The autumn dying
splendors are onlv prelude to the rest ol
nature in the grave of winter, to wake
again at the glad voice ot spring, clad in
new raiment, renewed and recreated.
The changes in the autumn leal going
on liefore the eye we rather wish to
ascrilw to some subtle, mysterious and
kindly work of nature, in sportive or in
serious mood to show the scope and di
versity of her powers, or illustrate an
other phase of creative wisdom and ol
power. Hut science comes in to give its
cold and heartless explanation. It is but
the ieration of blind inflexible chemical
law. Chemistry is a wonderful necro
mancer, but it is also a remorseless dis
enchanter; and its analysis informs our
reason that the process of the change in
color is only oledience to certain very
simple laws. It is this: The green mat
ter in the leaf is composed of two colors, I
red anil blur. When the sap ceases to
flow, oxidization ot' the tissues takes
place, and under dillercnt conditions, the
green ch.'inges to red. or yellow, or pur
ple, or brown, the changes influenced by
tcmerature, drought or moisture, or
soil. This is scientifically simple, and
the henutiful phenomenon, in the eye ot
science, stands stripH.'d of all its won
ders. Vet, in fact, it stands a wonder
still; tor lchind the cold exactness ol
scientific analysis, remains the fact that
it is the work of the (irent First Cause,
who designed all these subtle agencies to
do His will. Man may analyze the
agencies. He can no farther, nor can he
set aside the fact that all comes out of
deep design, in which profoundest wis
dom is blended with benevolent consider
ation that man may find his present
home a place of cheer and pleasure, and
through its beauties catch a glimpse of
the tar surpassing splendors of his future
dwelling. And so we will continue to
look on autumn glories, not through the
eyes of science, but through those of
heartfelt pleasure and of hopeful faith.
To meet next month in Washington
City, has some features of unusual inter
est attached to it, apart from the mate
rial objects which call it together. The
States to be represented are those which
were once under foreign dominion, which,
like the I'uited States, threw off the do
minion of the mother countries, and
which also, like the Tinted States,
adopted Republican forms of govern
ment, with one exception. That excep
tion was Brazil. That country had lieen
a Portuguese colony, and when the Bra
ganza family was expelled from Portu
gal, it found a refuge in Brazil, setting up
the royal standard there. Eventually,
and very quietly, Brazil was detached
from Portugal, and became an empire in
its own right with a recognized heredi
tary dynasty, and making steady and
creditable progress as one of the great
powers ot the South American Continent.
The other States of South America, and
also Central America and Mexizo, were
under Spanish rule. In each one revolu
tion was resorted to, and independence
achieved after long and arduous strug
gle. The people of the United States
naturally took great interest in a con
flict which had so many features in com
njon with their own revolutionary expe
rience, and in fact rendered great mate
rial aid in men and munitions of war.
1 he government was bound to neutral
ity. It contented itself with very prompt
recognition of the new governments
whose independence was achieved. Those
governments were modeled after that of
the United States, bnt can hardly be con
sidered as happy adaptations to condi
tions so different, and to people with so
little training in the principles and prac
tices of self-government. Amid the revo- f
lutions and chronic wars which have af
flicted each one of these republics from
their birth down almost to the present
day. the United States has had little
reason to felicitate itself upon the adop
tion of its system by those who applied
it so awkwardly. In fact republicanism
was brought into disrepute with the
world, and with the advocates of mon
archy disbelievers in man's ability to
govern himself, only redeemed by the
solitary successful example given by the

"There is said to he a strong movement
in Arkansas to secure the passage ol an
Act requiring tile railroads to provide
separate coaches lor colored passengers.
The colored passengers wil! probably not

dishonest, however, tor the railroads to
make a colored passenger ny first class

After the colored passengers have been
provided with separate coaches, it is to

Wc clip the above from the Charleston
News and Courier with approval of the
idea. In railroad excrieiicc in this State
and elsew here in the South wc believe,
with the exception of (Veorgia where they
use whiit are derisively styled "Jim Crow
ears," there is a manifest inconsistency in
the otVensive practice of opening first
class coaches to all coiners and to all passengers-
who have paid first class fair in
contrast with the resistance made to
practical social equality elsewhere.
In the theatres. the hotels, the
churches and other public places.
there is rigid distinction of races
and colors. Only in the passenger cars
lo we find white and black sandwiched
together. There only is money the ocu
sesame to perfect social equality, (liter
times no unpleasantness results; often
times it does, lor the ability to pay first
class fare does not imply the ability to
buy good manners or quiet deportment
in conveyances designed and provided to
secure the self resieet of the cultivated
and the refined.
Hut those who might Ik- offensive, lie
cause insli nmcuts to this glaring incon
sistency, are entitled to the worth of their
money. It they pay first class fare they
arc entitled to the first classcoacbcs. To
exclude them from these, to thrust them
into smoking cars, or into shabby "Jim
Crows" is a breach of contract, a viola
tion of good faith, needless etlront and
good cause of the complaint so often
made, and so aptly applied as a political
weapon. In this State there isno ground
of such complaint. Wc arc all liable to
lie mixed up hodge podge as we travel.
It is not pleasant, it is not consistent.

fice justice. Let the colored traveler
