Si" On Tu sday last we had thl gratification of a visit from Chas. E. Halstead, Esq., of the lerrillc n .i. Mr. H. speaks confidently pf a Republican triumph in his parish liCen the time comes, and we are glad to hear it. ZDeoirous of informing our readers to the fulliest extent of the proceedings of the colored conven tion which assembled in Columbia, South Carolina, on October 18, 1871, we devote a large portion of the space in our present issue to give the proceedings of the first and conud days. vrTho great pedestrian Weston has failed again to walk one hun tdro1 and thirteen miles in tweuty four consecutive hours. He com pltced his hundred miles however, mnuch to the satisfaction and alp prv'l of the immense crowd gath ered to see him attempt to perform vb~,t evidently is an impossible task to himn, or p. rhips "any other man." lie was ehagrind. to the quick it seemedrt, :at :is third defeat, and oons.idlcr'd himself di.sgraced, be e tus e he "ought to have dene that hban.irod :1 1 thirteen mile, " OF RECUSIXG. . Of al the extraordinary procee4 ing ofbur judges and judes in e ceid tiCes, we are f/msed aD t lief that none exceeds in improprie ty and injustice, the fashion of, and the reason for "recusing" which has recently so extensively obtained in New Orlcans. Jurors have repeat edly been permitted to decline serv ing on juries on the ground that they had received impressions on the merits of the case from the news paper and other reports circulated between the commission of the of fence and the trial therefor. If the perusal of the reports, or the casual conversations which take place during the excitement of a tragic event are deemed sufficient to dis qualify an intelligent, a conscien tious man forlistening tona searching enquiry into the real merits of a caise, and arriving at a verdict "ac cording to the evidence" offered to I himn on the trial, then incapacity to read, and isolatiu from society, supreme ignorance, were l,1:ss for jary:nen. But we o pine that even the most earnest advocates of the theory would not desire to arrive at this legitimate conclusion. There are various reasons for which certain men should not serve on juries ; instances in which there is just ground to fear or suspect, that, from interest, or affection, or hate, or fear, the jndgment will be so warped and carried aside by the prejudice that an impartial examin ation, and a due appreciation of the value of the whole chain of evid ence is imtnrobable if not impossible, and particularly if the juror him self suggest the objection, then jurors may properly be excused from serving, but it is preposter ous in the extreme, and offering a premium for ignorance, to excuse every juror who has read'the news !,a;er reports of crimes, and even !expressed opinions on the reports as they received them. But if this is generally wrong in the ease (.f ju'rors, how much more reprehensible must it be in a judge who rccu;ses himself from presiding over his court during an important trial for no better reason than he waa previously fully informed of the particulars in a certain case. It is time for this abuse of a license to stop. Competent jurors should reflect on the vast injury they may be doing by committing the most important trials to the hands of incompetent men. For, their smart shirking of duty cannot be permit ted to interfere in any manner with the procedure of the trial, and by constantly oelictitg or being eb j4 etedl to, on the trivial grounds named, the very men who should be impannelled escape, and the men to whom should be committed only the lnast important and least complicated cases, are required to keep up a stretch and strain of in tellcctual exercise concimneing in bewilderment, and ending in "con fusion worse confounded. We are glad to notice thie city paers awakirng to the importance ,f a return to the old ways, :and advising competent jurors to manfully, patriotically sacrifice their pirs,,nal feelings, and save niot only the interests of society at large, but in many cases the imme liate and imnportant interests of litigants and criminals. SP1ECIAL BUILDING ASSOCI ATION. A number of gentlemen have or ganized themselves into an associ ciation for the purpose of erecting a masonic edlif.ce, in this city, for the use of the order in general The orignators of this scheme are all masons, and working under the Grand Lodge of Louisiana They held their organization meet ing and elected the following di rectors: Hon. O. J. Dunn, Hen. John Parsons, Messrs. R. H. Isabelle, Win. Mulford, A. E. Barber, W GO. Elliott, Edward Towneend, J. A. Cottrell, J. J. Bonjean, O. Pilman, Thea. Isabelle, J. A. Norago, Rob't Brown, G. CasOnave, George F. James. The officers of this company are, Thos. Isabelle, President, A. E. Bar-I ber, Vice President, James Lewis, Treasurer, Win. Malford, Secretary. We are informed that arrange menis will soon be perfected for the issue of shares of the stock of the company, and it must not be under stood that because the building will be devoted to the use of masons thlt therefore none but masons may own shares in it. All who are dis posed to invest in the stock will be welcome to avail themselves of the opportunity andl purchase. The enterrrise has our wish for its suc Cess. $OLOtI D COUIERVA.TI'VEL. Thl Mississippi semi-weekly C.,a riout ~ O . 20 says, that "seven teen momp smnwgiU rise anti set, and then the election day will dawn" in Mississippi. It calls on all the white conservatives to "protect the colored conservatives at all hazards." From this we infer that the Dem ocratic party of Miss., will be sup ported by the votes of some colored men. The unfathomable stolidity, the ut ter lack of ol:servation, or tlhe blind ing influences of the love of imme diate gain, and the reckless disre gard of ,one(lluenc'es, which some colored men exhibit are ftirly a tounding to us, antd are sufllicicnt to evoke the turbulh:no of excitable persons. In view of these things there is no wonder the "conserva tive" element is apprehensive of the outburst of indignant passion on the part of our: peiople against men whose every ini.,tinet and interest shouhl Fr,eunqptorily and for ever prompt thetm to repudiate Dem ocracy in whatever insidious guise it may attempt to apl:ro.iclh them. We do not however counsel a resort to violene, but we hope that all Repulblicans of Mississippi will carefully ob:,erve those colored men vho in the unspeakable degradation of their hearts, in the profound depth of their treachery and infamy, will exert their influence, and cast their ballots, for the triumph of Dc- I mnocracy, with all its negro hating dcoctri;:e.s as a fon::dation, its heart less proscriptions as a corner stone; anti make them k':;wn that their characters might le published over this broad l:ud, and themselves made the fixed figure at which scornfully to point "the slow un nmoing tingt r' of a .tiuggling race.

Elsewherew we pubhli:h an a:rticle from "Te S'ati,,t.p I;ok," a news pal or pull:shl d in New York and devoted to the interests of the Insti tution. In connexion with tlhe general st:atement of the erigW, the objects and the value of thie Freed men's Sa:vings Bank, we submit a few remarks of thie optrations ,of our New Orleans Branlch, untler the control of C. D. Sturte'. ant E. It is gratifying tu notice the incrcas ing a',preci:atin of and confidlence in the Bank, by our laboriug, thrif ty petiple. Since January, there has heeni an iucrease of over 900 n w depo.itors, i.ggre,,.atin, an amounl t of severlal thousand ollars. There is int present duei depositors over two hundred and forty thou sand dollars, again of over $2000, sinceJanuary 1, 1871 and the busi nessof the Bank rsteadlily increasing. In this connexion we take much pleasure in noticing that Mr. A. Paillet, late book-keeper has been appointed Assistant-Cashier in the New Orleans branch. Mr. Paiilet's business qualifica tions doubtless entitled him to this preferment, while his well-known urbane and courteous manners can not but render him a desirable ac quisition to such an establishmentL The appointment is decidedly a ju dicious one, and we congratulate Mr. Paillet on the recognition thus showed him. -4..- a-We observe that the RaPusu can in noticing the discharge of John Fazcnle, by Mr. Justice Kern, for the alleged murder of Marie Estelle, a col, ri. young wo man, lately, in Mr. F.,zende's em ploy, says that "it is presumed, how ever, that the District Attorney will cause the rearrest of Mr. Fazende, in oader to bring the case before the SGrand Jury." The aircumstances of this case are ;still fresh in the memory of the -Pub!ie, and from what we learn transpired in evidence before MIr. ii"rn. we are at a loss to compre hend his reasons for undertaking to I dismniss the case. We will in all robability hear sabout this case. S eo 'fit m atic pa4era aIe bellow e vovers t kenf o Itns ,A brief ianqui te wOWh drove th po a$ior s i hs City to arm the police, anid a further inquiry as to whether those causes do not still exist, but are dormant on account of this very arming, will we think satisfr tle bvers 1 piap and order that the Board are acting wisely in permitting their men to carry revolvers still. Besides, look at so many other cities where the same "strapping to the rump" is adopted and compare our police condition with theirs and see where in we are a whit more improved in morals, in peaceableness, in ready obedience to lawful authority than they, and then demand the disarm ing the police. " MIXIED SCHOOLS." Whnt a bugaboo in the minds of many people is the idea conveyed by the caption of this article! It is only among the thinking men that the proposition to educate all races and classes together is entertained for a moment in the South. But when some reason is demanded why' our system of public education should be made a powerful instru mentality for a perpetuation of caste, we are not vouchisafed an intelli gible answer, but upon our ears grate the harsh tones of false pride and blind prejudice. To us it is self-evident that all public institutions of learning in every State in this Union must very soon be opened to all persons what socver of the scholastic age. It would be interesting to review the Iprogress of impartial education in various parts of the Union, for such a review would be a complete de monstration of the correctness of our position that no permanent system of caste schoals can be es tabllihed in this or any othler State. rut we do not propose at this tino: to enter into any elaborate exposition of this subject. We I.1ailly wi.h to make a few sugges tii.ms and references for the benefit of the enquiring and untr:tunmelled mind. Those who are determined to grope in ignorance and to grovel in prejudice are naturally expected' ,to turn up their noses and to make wry laces at tie slightest hint to ward iany great reform. inl the grand old Cemmonwealth of Massaclhusetts we lind that the mi:nds of the people were first in tensely excited upon the question ulllder consideration in the year 1419, when the Supreme Court, unmmoved by a the arguments of CLr.:,L:s Siumncr, ,lecided in favor of excluding ncgroestrom :il schools except those detsigiat. d ex lusively for tlhemi. In 1854 the Legislature set this pmatter at rest by abtlishing the separate schools altogether. The mixed school system thus inaugurated has given universal stisfaction. In Michigan, on the contrary, the iquestiun was settlcd by the Supreme Court instead of Lby the Legisl:ature. In that State the schools have been mixed but little more than a year. In Kansas, where the colored lpopullatio is raplidly increasing, the schools are being mixed everywhere without opposition. But in two or three of the Northwestern States no adequate provision has ever yet been Imade to educate the colored people although the Superintendents' and Teachers' Associations are now urg ing immediate remedial legicslation which will speedily be secured. It will be observed that through out the greater part of the Northl mixed schools have been establish ed, and that, too, by the choice of Sthe white people themselves, as the colored element is thlere politically insignificant. In regaurd to the South which contains so large a propor-! tion of colored votes, we are not toj expect that any political party will long persist in insisting on separate schools for the races. And inas much as thousands of colored youth in every Sonthern State must for ever be debarred from the benefits of the public school fund from any system of caste echools, the issue forces itself upon us in the shape which does not admit of any pre varication. We think we do not mistake the temper and aims of the Repnblican party of Texas when we assume that it is the unalterable purpose of its leading spirits to make all the public schools in our State free to every color, either through legisla ture or judicial instrumentality.

These millions of slave were launched sunldenly from a helpless servitude to an al *Iq helpless freedom. At this critical moment a consul tation took place in the private library of Salmon P. Chase-then ox' Secretary of the Treasury, now our Chief Justice-to consider "how we could take care of the contra band," or rather "how we could best teach the freedmen to take care of themselves." It ended under Sec rctary Chase's advice in asking Congress to grant to Peter Cooper and others, a charter to establish in Washington a CEsrrnAL SAvtoas BAsx for FmunxfErs; with branches all through the country, just as fast as American soil should be rescued for freedom. This was the first great provision made by the Republic for its help less millions of freedmen whom the crazy shot into Fort S:umpter had launched into our hands. It was right to do this, because i iis alht'y right t, do r,'igh. I was bil to do it, because the South wa3 her own enemy-not ours; and in her weak ness she needed our strength; in her hate, if she had it-our love. So all praise be to Salmon. P. Chase, Peter Cooper, Jay Cooke and H. D. Cooke, and ec,'ryxl y who helped the gool act along-all rraise to the Congre,;s which gave the char ter, and "all Glory be to God and Henry of Navarre." We only pay' this p'ssing tribute to the noblest American of his couctry- ALArHAni LIscL.x-for his heart dictated and bi., hand wrote that eternal P:ocL.A MATION OF F1S ; or no. This noble Charter for Freedmenn's Sa:vie:;s B.n,';s was the first rAay house of the A.fri":n on lis road to indeplenencde'. It was his; district school. It tang'.t hi:n the great lesson, that every free nman who will work, can make mo'e montey than he needs, and save the balance against a rainy d:ay. And the good work went on. Savings b:anl:s were opened wherever the old flag was set floati:g over redeemed soil, and now we have this record. We in I sert the lit (,f Freehmeu's Saving.-.

But the doomed Afican race had to be made "'Lee, or the Uni ,n had to die." If u'w entered the Promised Land, we must take an emancipated people with us, and so it was agreed that it was better to give liberty to the slave than go to tlhe grave of the Republic.
