In any form of gp vcr li moil t simi
lar to ours, whore freedom ol
speech, religious liberty and tho
rights of tho peoplo aro recognized
as thc foundation upon which tho
mighty structure rnsls, there is al
ways danger when social and moral
questions seek an entrance into
politics. As it is of prime impor
tance that tho legislative, judicial
and executive branches of the
government should bo forever kepi
separate and dist incl, so also should
all of the questions that are agita
ting tin1 people, (ind a solution in
their proper spheres. There aro
always to be found those who over
look the moans in their /.eal for the
accomplishment of some particular
The temp?rance question, as a
moral reform, has accomplished
much and has liefere lt a wide tadd,
but however good and praiseworthy
an object may be, it must bo ac
complished in tho proper way.
Our brethren of the North, (.!'
both political parties, have made
the experiment, and In every in
stance material danger ba.-- resulted.
Politicians who seek tho suffrage
of the people upon any Issue save
those which properly belong to the
realm of politics, should bo de
nounced by all who have tho good
of their country at heart. Polities
ha? nothing to do with sentiment
or passion. We see Sherman & Co. in
Ohio, and Mahmie and his parasites
In Virginia, raising the "bloody
shirt for political purposes, all aro
ready to cry aloud against it,
and yet we sometimes overlook,
In our own land, false issues raised
for similar purposes. The end does
not justify tho means.
Wo strongly favor the temper
ance cause, hut will never encour
age those who would, if possible,
upturn society and oven the gov
ernment itself, in order to carry
It Must Stop.
We have heard a great deal in
the past few months about lawless
ness, but we hnve not as yet beard
any thing given as the cause of
such A condition of society. Per
haps no one thing can lie pointed
out OS the cause, it may he rather
the result of a combination of cir
cumstances, and thal combination
difficult to comprehend. All gov
ernment is designed to placo nu n
upon an equal footing; to protect
the weak and pull down tho strong.
In order to accomplish this, laws
aro enacted and tribunals estab
lished, where tho laws are to bo
"Enforced. So long ns these laws
are founded in wisdom and are ad
ministered with an impartial hand;
so long as the people maintain re
spect for the law and confidence in
the justice of its administration,
peace and good order is assumed.
But whenever a loophole ls left for
the guilty to escape, and moro es
pecially if the guilty party be strong
and influential, it creates an unrc.il
which destroys the greatest bless
ings which are .expected from a gov
ernment. During tho past week,
lt is reported that several negroes
were taken out and whipped and
otherwise brutally treated by white
men in (air own county, and those
who committed the deed defy the
law nt the point of Winchester
Hilles. Wo do not give the reptad
as truo, nor do we mean to express
doubt as to tho efficiency of our
officers to meet tho demands of
Buch flagrant violation of law, bul
such things aro becoming fearfully
bom mon. We can scarcely look
ovor a newspaper, but what wo see
such accounts. It is not confined
to this State nor strictly to the
Southern States, yet it is, by far, of
too frequent occurrence In the
South for our good. We must re
spect the law If we would have or
der, and give tho negro his rights
If wo would control labor.
Human nature, it ls said, has
been tho same in* u'l ages, and we
have no reason to doubt it; but
whether or not this be true, it has
t ire? appeared to be a strange thing.
"Know Thyself," which was in
scribed upou Hie threshold of the
,.ancient temple, In golden letters,
has battled tho philosophy und
lem liing of tho world. As long as
time shall lust H will go down the

I). A. ST lt A K Kit, colored, profess- r
of law in Allen University, conies
out in the licyister ol* the Khh in
an appeal ter fie recognition of
the negro in the professions of
medicino and law. lt ls strange
that a negro of his Intelligence
should net know that all nit? mpts
on tho part of his race to ?.vain so
cial equality, aro not only faille,
hut invariably tends to alienate
the races, ami eau hy no means bo
of hem lit ti? them. We uro willing
to elevate fae negro by education,
we cheerfully place him upon un
equality in the administration of
the laws ami give him :i!l fe- po
litical liberty enjoy,)! hy others,
but when it conies io social equal
ity, they must ??i least wait until
tho present generation hus passed
away. ne h n thing will result in
disaster to (?ie negro, timi the
most intelligent ol* the race do not
really desire it. We give them
then- political rights ami they can
