OUR ¢ TRANSCRIPT > FRIEND. |
Our article in this p per last week |
concerning the Transcripl’s notice of the
Exhbibition of the Freeduen's Schoals, bas
called out that sheet in a leader in which |
the eaitor still contends that he 1s a |
traitor ; (for bé says the epithet (7) ia the |
baitie soug was iutended for him, which ‘.
we deny,) and i which he freelypac |
knowledges that ¢ freedom vwathout know- |
ledye is rather a curse than a blessing ;|
aud that the uegroes ‘require to be taught ‘
reading, writivg, arithwetic, aud the
bibie.’ ;
For this, we sincerely thank the edi
tor; for we take it as an earnest of
still greater liberality iu the future. DBut
we ask the editor of the A«g sie Tron
feript in all candor, and with the earnest ]
hope that he wiil tell us, why avy re
stricticns should be placsd upon the
education of those whom God created
with a dak skin, that sbould not be
placed upou the education of those whowm
' He bas created with a fair, or white,
skin?
Is there any reason, for instance, why
John Smith, a negro, should uot be al
Jowed (if he have the means to pay the
expeuscs) to seud his son to college, and
to have bim graduated with the degree of !
A B.
Were all the negroes in this country |
educated to the highest degree, that are |
the whites in the most iutelligent com
| munity in the couutry, would the coun
pr);, or the negroes be any the worse for
1t ! |
Are you willing to allow the colored |
people the same facilities to rise to posi
tious to which intelligence, morality—
Christian virtues—only can carry one,
that youaccede to the whites? If you
are not, be kind evough to tell us why.
It is a subject of deep interest to the
freedmen; aud they hope to bave all the
caution, and advice, given them by their
white friends, which they, in their wis
dom, may deem necessary to save them
from error:—to deter them from taking
a single step in the wrong direction ; —to
keep them from adopting any system of
cducation—-any theory of morals—tbat
is not s¥re to result in the best interests
of their own race, and the general iute
rests, happiness, and prosperity of the
eutire Americau people.
Nationar Freepman’s Saving's anp
Trust Company— Ve are glad that we
can inform our rcaders, that this company
have established a bauk in this city, where
colored citizens can deposit money and
koow that it is safe. This company was
chartered by Congress, and is cqmpOsfll
of wealthy men, who are true_friends of
’ persons can deposit money in this bank.
‘The reason is that the Company res
ceive no compensation for their services,
and, while they are willing to assist
colored persons gratuitously, they are not
willing to -assist white persons without
compensation. We can assure our color
ed friends tlat they may have fall con~
fideuce in this bank, and that the money
they deposit will be pertectly safe We
advise you all to put what money you
can spare into the Saving’'s Bavk. The
Cashier will be pleased to see you at any
time at the bank, and give you any in
formation you may wish to receive. {
The office, for the present, is at the
office of the Loyal Georgian. ‘
Tue AmericaN Frac DEerentep.—
We are iouformed thata raid on a small
scale, occurred in this ¢ity one day last
week. A company. of small boys—
colored—marchir g through the strects,
waving the American flag, were attacted
by a._company of small boys—white—
We did not learn whether the ‘dear oid
flag’ was successfully defgnded, or whether
it was ‘traled in the dust’
It is evident that the colored boys were
loyal and were willing to fight for the
flag, they love. '
A Moruer’s InrLuence ~How touch
‘ing is this tribute of Hon T H Benton
to his mother’s influence :
My mother asked me never to use to
bacco ; I bave never touched it from that
time to the present day. She asked me
not to game, and I have never gambled,
and I cannot tell who is losin” in games
that are being played. She admonished
we, too, against hard drinking; :nd what
ever capacity for endurance I have at
present, and whatever usefulness I may
have attained in life, I have attributed to
having complied with her pious and cor
rect wishes. When I was seven years of
age she asked me not to drink, and then
1 made n resolution of total abstince, aud
that I have advered to it through all
time I owe to my mesher.’

THE INSULT TO MASSACHU
; SETTS- | i
Had Massachusetts in the olden days
of Jackson and V& Baren, been insulted
in the person of her Senator, Daniel
Webster, as was Massachusetts, on
Thureday weck; in the person of Uharles
Sui.ner, by the President of the United
States, the demoustrations would have
been far different from what they were
recently. State sireet would have at gnee |
surged with excitement. Knots of angry
men would bave iuterrupted the busines- |
of bauks and insuranee cffices, trade
would have suspended its funetions, the
curbstones been deserted, while the Ex~
change and Fancuil Hall would have ve
‘sounded with the indignant cloquence of
‘his adherents. The State, as was its
’ wout in hose palmy Whig days, would
have rcsponded by countless meetings to
defend the ¢haracter aud position of its
chief representative, |
Charles Sumuer is enthroned in the
minds of the leading classes of State
street as no su h iutcllectual divinity.
He is still rezarded by tco many as out
side of a healthy political organizatiou.
Yet in devotion to great ideas of human
progyess, he is far in advauce of what
Webster, even in the better days of his
youth, ever conceived Heoce though
the capitvl jours not fulsome eulogy iuto
his ear throuzh monstrous public gather
ings, the caln, earnest, thinking populas
tion of the State stand by bim with a
wealih of sincere frievdship his predeces
sor vever knew. | It bas been wou by no
‘mere tricious tricks of oratory, no high~
| gounaing expositions of constitutional
law, no influence of preferred favorites,
'po ringing scutences of newspapers or
popular speakers, hut solely by bis siugle
hearted faithfulness and integrity.
| The insult to Massaciiusetts in the
President’s allusion to its senior senator
is keenly felt in every section of the com
mouwealth The executive ofticers of Its
| chief city bave alrcady upanimo usly ex
| pressed their sentiment in pertinent res
| solutions. The legislatare bas seconded,
| in more elaborate phrase, the utterance
|of the metropolis. The pe6ple througi:~
out our borders respond to these express
sions of their representatives. ~ What
matters it tbat a few newspapers have
ouly teeble words of prot-st at this great
outrage upon the Siate—-what matters
it that the leading Republican piper of
| Boston has not yet learned the action of
its own Board of Aldermen—their in

l MassacBUSETTS To HER SenaTORS AND
| RepresentaTives.—The Cunmittee on
- Federal relations of the legi~lature, ou
[ Thursday last, made report of re<olutions
! on natioual matters, partly as f.llows:
- Resolved, !hat :ihe ipitistion of all
measures for the civil andpolitie:l or
ganization of the States, lately in rebel
lion, i~ constitutionally within Ihe control
of Congress, aud that such measures
shouid contain girarintees for the full
~protection of the civil aud political rights
‘and fravehises of all citizens, aud that
these rights and fiauchises should be beld
land exercised to the end that political
power may be in the hands of loyal sup
porters of the goverument,; aud not o
rebel enemies.
~ Reso'ved, That the enlightened judg
-ment of mavkind will hold vot ouly the
‘government, but the people of the United
States, to the fulfillmeut, to the utters
‘most, in letter ard in spirit, of the
promiscs 80 solemuly made to the freeds
‘men, an . avy failure to fulfil them would
ufliet a stain upou our vational character
~which will debase us amongst the nat ons,
subject us to the contempt of our co
temporaries and of posterity.
‘ Resclved, That we tender our thanks
to the Sevators and Représeuntatives of
Massachusetts at Washington for their
firmuess heretofore in maintaiving this
priveiple, and for their resistance to all
‘attempts to place in the balls of Cougress
disluyal men or the represeutatives of
‘disloyal people, to the peril of the nation
al credjt, aud at the imminent risk ol
iosing by legislation all that we bave
gaiuved by successful war. And we ex
pect them to maintain this position in
the future, and to the last.
Resolved, That while thus expressiog
our coufidence in' our sevatorial and re
presentative delegations in Cougress, aud
the determination of the people to staud
by thew, ve are also impelled to take
notice of the recent charges made, by
wame, agaiust one of the Scuz»:tors of this
State, Hon. Charles Sumnper, in the lately
published speech of the President of the
United States, and to declare that the
language used and the charges madc by
the President are unbecominyg the elevat
ed station occupied by bim, an unjust
reflection upon Massachusetts, and with~
out the shadow of justification or defense
founded upou the public or private record
of our cmiveut scnaior,

BEECHER'S TRIBUTE TO
: GARRISON:
Ou Sunday morning last, Mr. Beech
er, in giving notice of Mr. Garrison’s
lceture, delivered at the Acedemy of
Music in Breoklyn, oun Tucsday evening
said: %
‘I greatly regret that ‘abeerce from
town ou that evening will prevent my
joining with you in paying a token of
public respret and honar to this one of
the few distinguished Americans. [ am
better fitted than his wore imuwediare
adberents to speak «f Mr. Garrison;
because [ have mever been cf his' party,
wor stood upon his platform. It has
been a diffe ence, however, of measures
aud not of ends I have siways been in
the strongest sympathy with bhim in re
card to the evils aud dangers of . Ameri
can elavery. The methods by which ke
propceed to break the power of it never
scemed to me to be wise, and, therefore,
[ uever eould pursue, exerpt in a general
way, ¢-cperative labor with him. lam
not, therefore, blinded by party fecling
when [ say that Mr. Garrison s oue vl
the few men in this geveration that will
not die; whose name will go upon the
page of bistory unsullied. For, mor
and more, it will appear that the euo
and aim aud effect of his whole life has
been to work out that most glorious fruit,
Curistian L berty to all Aod all mis
takes of judgment, all mistakes of in—
struments, will be thought of Jess and
less; while the great victory which he,
»s much as any other oine wan, bas con
tributed to produce, will give the measuie
and the proportiou to his r:putation—and
men witl say, *The mistaker were buman,
but this consecration of a life, heroically,
!m so grand an object, is divine. God
mspired that in him.
“I'hrough ‘good report and through
evil report, for some forty years, he bas
ruffercd his name to be- ecast out—to be
trodden under foot of men He has
suffered every ind'guity that a mau
could well suffer. He has walked with
out wealtk aud without honor —although
by the powers of his wind, he was fitted
to rise to any sphere of life in which be
might choose to walk. He gave himself
tor the pror. He was voice to those
‘that coulu not speak; he was defeuse to
.those that were defenscless; be was eyes
to those thas were bliud. He gave bim-~
self to be a brother to those that were
without a house, without a name, aud
without kiudred. And on his head may
'God’s blessing rest to the last hour of
tus life. I henor him, aud I love bim;
and vot the less because of that excceil
mg greatvess of good sense which lea
bith 10 see at guee when the Constitution
was aimended tbav sluvery wao dead, and
that his past lue was ended. He laid
dowu his paper; he laid aside his weap
ons; he putaway all the enginery of the
old war, avd turned Liwmself—like au
bumble man without a vame—to the
great work of educating the poor, and
takiug care of the unewlyscmarcipated
slave. 1 feel, you feel, and all ought to
feel, that ber- isa %mn whose shoes’
latchet we are not worthy to unloose.
Aud the least that we cau do is, not to
wait till he is dead and then prounounce
culogies upou him, but to ~how him, while
he is yet alive and amongst us, that we
honor nim. And I should like it if that
Ac.demy of Mus'¢ was so ecrowded by us
that nobody else could getin. Ido not
ask you to go bccause I think he will
give youa flowery aud rhetorical treat;
‘ but that you may be :3ne to express your
feelings of respect and your houoring re
gard to one that has added a star to the
galaxy of American honored names’—

A oerrespondent, in Kansas, writes to
the ‘Lrdy’s Book” as follows: —'Que year
ago, Miss Martha Baldwin, a graduate of
t:aldwin University, at Berea Ohio, was
clected to fill the chair of Prcfessorship
of the Greek and Latiu languages in the
Baker University, at *his place, which
was chartered by the Kausas Territorial
Legislature, in the wi.ter of 1857, and
has been in active operation seven years
It is an institution attended by both
scxes, and Miss Baldwin has been the
sole occupant of the chair above stated,
and bas given entire sa isfaction during
the collegiate year which has closed She
was elected by the faculty of the uni
versity, coosisting of two gectlemen and
three ladies, to deliver their ad-ress for
the commencement exercises, and wost
vobly aud beautifully performed the duty,
though it was with wuch wodesty, for
she 1s but tweuty-one years of age'—

HAPPY AT HOME.
The litt e straws of every day habit,
floatirg slowly atd silently down the
stream of life, shows very piaiuly which
way the tide sets. Aund when Mrs.
Parrle says with a groan, ¢ My husband
never spends his evenings at home,’ it is
natural to iuguire within one's self why
it ia that Mr Purple finds other resorts
so much more atiractive than the house<
bhold altar,
‘I don't see why he can’t be a little
more domestic,” says Mrs. Purple.
Well, why isit? There 18 a reason
for everything in the world say ohiloso
phers, aud there must be a reason for
this.
In the first place, Mrs, Purple is one
of those un‘orturate housekeepers whose
work is vever dome. There is always
something drageing, a room to he swept,
lamps to be trimmed, fretful babies to be
put to sleep, while one eye is on the
boiling meat aud the other on the muddy
foot print anwittingly left by Mr, Purple
on the doorstep. *There Purple, I
knew just how it would be. I wonder
f you know the use ot a scraper or a
door-mat, I should think atter all the
time I've spent n cleaning up—’
And Mrs. Purpl'e goes off into a mo
notonous recapitulation of her trials aud
troubles that has all the effect of a lulla
by upon the buby, however trying it may
be to the teelings of the baby’s father
¢ Moreover, Mrs. Purple, with all her
¢cleaning up, does not underst nd ele~
meutary priuciples of keeping a house
neat. Things are always round in the
~ay: table covers jput ou awry; dust
and ashas under the grate; curtaing torn
away from their fastenings and pinn d
up until Mrs. Puryle can find tme to
rejust them. Semehow it looks forlorn,
and desolute, and unhomelike when the
master of the house comes in at night.
vir, Purple, man-like, cau’t tell where
the defection lies—he don’t analyze the
chill that comes over his heart as he
crosses the threshoid—he ouly kunows
that things don’t lovk ship-shape.” And
-0 he tukes his bat when his wife’s back
is turned and sneakes iguominiously off,
zlad to get away from the deadsalive fire,
the dusty room and Mrs Purple’s tongue,
Who can blame the man? Mr, Purple
wmay be lazy, and careless, very likely he
is—mcst wen have a tendency that way
— but nevertheless he don’t like to wve
told of it over and over again, in that per.
sistent, illogical sort of way that reminds
you of an old hen running from side to
side m her coop, and poking her head
through the bars in the same place every
seven scconds Mr Purple naturally
wonders why his wife dou’t occasionally
allude to the few good qualities he haps
pers to posscss. Mr. "urple has every
wclinat on to be bappy at bkowe, if his
becter balf would only give him a
chance,
Uf all the sweetly tinted pf&tures of
domestic happiness that we find in the
pages of Hol. Writ, there is none that
suguests wore (uiét comfort than Abra
‘haw sitting mm b s tent door in the heat
of the day uuder the shadow of the palm
trees of Mam e. Depend upon it, the
good old patriarch never s eut his eve
uings away from home. He didn’t be
lieve in just going across the plain to
Lot’s house, or runninz to Sodom to hear
the rews. No, Abrabam liked to sit
quietl by nis tent door, and very likely
Mrs. Sarah would come and lean over
liis shoulder and chat with him afrer the
Oriental tashion. We have the very best
of testimony for kunowing that +he was
very amiable under the ordeal of unez~
pected company, when the calf tender
and good waus dressed, and the three
measures of fine meal baked on the
hearth. -
The idea of looking beyond the sphere
of home for eujoymeunt is at the root of
many of our modern evils. Home ~hould
be the ve'y centre and sanctuary of happi
ness; and when it is not, there is some
screw loose in the domestic machinery ;
if you want to surround a young man
with the best possible safeguards don't
overwhe'm him with maziws and h>mo
lies as to what he is an is not to do, but
make bis home happy in the evenings
Let bim learn that however hard and
cruel the utside worid may b he is al
‘ways sure of sympathy and consideration
in oue place. Woe betide the man, what
ever his lot or position, who has iu his
