The Times in a leader last Friday ph
has som0 very sensible views with nu
reference to .the reletionahip of le£

We hail the tone of this article as ha
manly, just and exped ent, and we N
regard the fling at the strangers as
and interlopers, as one of the
strongest proofs of sincerity in the e0
writer, althrngh we deprecate it.
As the Tim's has suggested this
subject it may be well to say a word
or two on it. jo
We say as Colored men that we
have nothing to regret, retract or e
atone for, since we became the
"wards of the nation." We ch'l
longe history to furnish a brighter !
example of disci,'line or a stronger h,
illustration of gratitude tban the
blaek republicans of the South have tj
furnished in theme days of recon
In our Supreme exultation over,
the possession of the rights we
thought to be a century off, and in
the enjoyment of immunities we
thought would never come, we may f
csave said and done some extrava- c
gout things. But the mortification r
of defeat and the chagrin at the ,
presence of the victor upon South
er soil among southern men with I
the former slave as a witness and a t
rival for political honors, may have
had the effect of making our south
ern brethern, somewhat extrava
gant too, both in their threats
* against urn anal theur hatred of their
own race.
Yet wp phpuld be worse than
foolish now, if either side failed to
meet thq advances of the other, n
dem the suggestions of a mutual in
terest when it does not involve the
sacri~ce of principle. There is
room emoegh for us all here to try
the question of superiority of race,
-- sd whether it turns out that we
*have the physical, while eur white
fraenda have the mental advantage
or vice versa, it is certain that one
thiig wlll be settled, and this at
* thq mesbility of both races living
iran acordas is formed in al
most every European society where
eve the most prejuidiciall Amercasn
is forced to acknowledge colored
gentlemen and ladies or else aban
don society altogether.

There are few things which bear of it

in the destruction of what he con- in 4
sidered the Union's chief institu-I thel

of law, State and National, to be thee
changed by these new bills com- upc

legal terms, and a disastrous grasp eat
of worn-out ideas, could mislead an wit
honest Southern reporter or a for
re Northern chronicler of events so far the
ra as to make them attack Congress
i for passing laws which an altered
1e condition of society makes neces- wh
sary to the adjustment of every hon- the

We protest against that sort of re
journalism, which, in trying to be

or even then throws the pepper in the dei

The St. James Sentinel, published '
by Messrs Boves and Bently, ex
actly expresses our ideas in respect t
to out duty in the August Conten- A
tion. It distinctly and emphatially +
presses upon the attention of mem- and
bers the necessity for securing an enti
honest and intelligent and faithful but
"Committee on Credentials." This one
it asserts, and we fully concur, is A
requisite to prevent bogus repre-,a cO
sentatives forcing themselves into 'a
communion with the elect, and per
° haps working irretrievable harm to er,.
the Republican party.
e We are very glad that the bent iad A
has taken this stand, and hope all our a
coafrerea will fall into line. Everyv
r- deliberative body, to bear the sem
blance of Republicanism, must have Col
power to judge of the qualifications whi
of its own members. If any coterie wet
10 clique or set of men usurp this Coi
power, independence and right of ma
representation becomes but ashadow
stor a lure. gv
Let the delegates to the Conven- m
tion, therefore, take especial care
ýd that their credentials are prepared
n- in 'ine and proper form, and let Co
- them keep possession thereof until the
m in the preliminary organization of et
their body, authority is conferred a c
n- upon suitable parties to receive me
of them. t

* est of harmony and fraternal good be

a for attracting special attention to: tel
far the subject.` ro
where in our columns we report w]
- the asaembling and' temporary or
ga- anization of the Republican Press an
of Convention. We observe as fair a of
be representation as we suppose it p1
possible to obtain in the State. 1
h There is an evident live interest ev
denced by the various members
n of the Press, in the matters to be o1
3ut discussed by the Convention. Of o1
I the prir ciles of our party we need fe
not I n formaldly renewed pledg.ŽR; the
o great need now i., that leaving "the:
Oi first principles of our frith, we
"o'. should go on to perfection. The 1
Convention should pledge itself to (1
a rigid enforcement of all laws; and
there are two questions on which
sity we would be delighted to see this C
re- Convention formally pledged. We
ani imperatively need the aid of cvery o
the true republican in maintaining ard n
sere encouraging us in our struggle for
teat the enjoyment of our rights and
