There have been several withdrawals
of companies from participation in the
National drill shortly to take place at
Washington, D. because there are
one or two companies of colored men
entered and, even the company in this
city, is suspected of withdrawing on
that account.
Among the companies to withdraw
was the Belknap Rifles, of San Antonio,
Tex., but we learn they have changed
their minds, since, in answer to a tele
gram sent by them, asking if the colored
troops would camp and drill with tihe
whites, and if they would be recognized
in the appointment of officers of the
day, the following telegram was sent
Washington, D. April 6.Capt.
J.^ Badger, San Antonio, Tex.: No.
There seems to be an entire miscon
ception. Gen. Anderson enters the
Virginia brigade. In it are two negro
companies. If thev come they will be
camped separately and drilled separate
ly. Please show this to Capt. Greene.
Chief of Military Committee.
It now is in order for us to indulge in
our great Aineiican pierogative of kick-
ing and say: If there is the slightest
difference, the most infinitesimal par-
ticle of proscription or ostracism shown
to the colored companies on account of
color, we hope they will immediately
withdraw. Be EQUAL or nothing
We are getting to be quite powerful
indeed, so much so that our white
brothers and sisters are almost para-
lyzed when they are brought in compe-
tition with us for fear that we will win.
African blood asserts its strength: let
one be ninety-nine parts white and one
part African, the one pait absorbs the
ninety and nine.
If the white companies are composed
of men and wish to enter a competitive
drill for tho purpose of gaining fame
they can lose none by excelling colored
soldiers,who have proven themselves to
bo the equals of an people in the wo Id
in military tactics. We hope the
-American citizens who desire to take
part in the American drill will be treat-
ed as American citizens should be
treated by Americans in America.
The real estate fever is beginning to be
epidemic among our people every man
one meets is on the look out for a snap.
They are somewhat selfish however and
are altogether too secretive about their
movements. The better plan would be
for those who have a few hundreds to
spare to put their little sums together
and buy some of the valuable acre pro-
perties to be had, and then to plat them,
and thus get the benefits which accrue
from the larger investments. It is all
very well for men to go it alone some
times, but it is never-the-less an ac-
knowledged fact that in union there is
strength. Let us endeavor to inspire
confidence in each other, by fair square
dealing one with another, AVe need
not rush wildly into the traps constant-
ly laid for the feet of the unsophisto
cated and unwary, but be sure we are
j-ight and then go ahead. It has been
deix'onstrated by the continued activity
in thtf market, which only increases as
time moves along, that there is nothing
of a boom in itf but that the rabidly in
creasing values are the natural result of
the rapidly increasing population. St
Paul dirt is better value than bank stock
The number of deaths which are an-
Ml' wmUy caused Alusough the .mistakes of
druggists in comnounding pefscriptions
is so large that it is a matter of wonder
that more safe guards are not thrown
around the public to prevent these
fatal accidents. Some method should
be generally adopted which would make
it next to impossible for any druggist to
put poisonous compounds into medi
cines where they do not belong. The
Scientific American of the present week
publishes an account of an invention
the use of which would prevent the pos
sibility of such accidents as occurred in
this city last week, causing the death of
a dear child. State laws should be
passed, making it criminal for any drug
gist to fail to use some such device. We
are wonderfully careless in not protect
ing human lives more fully.
Since, as a rule, the greatest number
of colored people who had the privilege
of riding on the railroads, on passes,
were among the editors of colored
papers we will willingly give up that
blessed privilege, without grumbling, in
view of the fact that, under the Inter
state Commerce Law, which takes it
from us, no discrimination can be made
against colored passengers* It is an ill
wind that blows nobody good. Our
passes will have to go, but the "Jim
Crow" cars and the custom of compell
ing colored passengers to occupy only
the smoking cars will have to go also.
The elections throughout the country
are badly mixed up, all parties winn
ing and losing, but upon the whole there
is much encouragement from the gener
al result.
The Republican victory in Chicago is
sufficient to off set loses in many places.
The the success of the party in Cincin-
nati fills us with unbounded joy. We
can even get considerable consolation
from the result in Minneapolis for there
was every reason to believe that we
would be more badly beaten.
We have secured the services of the
young, talented, versatile writer of

Columbia, S. March 80.Informa-
tion has been received here of an out
rage committed on the Cooper River
near Oakley, for which Captain Lewis'
Poinsett, of the sloop Carrie and Hattie,
will probably suffer. A large party of
colored laborers who had been working
on a river plantation on one side of the
river were being conveyed across to
their homes on the other side in a flat
boat. When the boat was in the middle
of the stream it was passed by the sloop.
Alter passing about a hundred yards
the sloop came about and, notwithstand
ing the ample room in the river, ran
directly into the flatboat, which was
partially split open and a number of
men knocked into the river, four of
them being drowned. The jury of in
quest put the responsibility on Captain
Poinsett, who has been committed to

There were one hundred and twenty
seven patriotic colored men willing and
anxious to risk death serving their
country in ''Africa's torrid clime," as
Minister to Liberia at $5,000 per annual.
C. H. J. Taylor was the man selected as
the victim. Two Kansas Millionaires
went his bond for $10,000. No provision
has, as yet, been made about his funeral
The Original Nashville Students, a
colored troupe of much merit, sang here
Sunday and Monday nights to good
houses, mostly white. Monday after
noon they called on the President at thp
White House. He received them very
kindly and said he regretted that the
pressure of official business deprived
him of the pleasure of hearing them
sing in the executive mansion. One of
the ladies of the troupe, Miss Hawkins,
one of the balles of Chicago, was con
siderably annoyed by the persistent at
tention of a white masher in a railroad
car full of people. Unabashed by the
evident signs of her annoyance, he
leaned over and renewed the mashing
process, when she also leaned over and
boxed his jaws. The people roared and
the masher sad and despondent sucked
his paw and mused on the progress of
the race.
Col. George W. Williams, the colored
historian, has been selected as the orator
of the day on the occasion of the cele
bration of the Emancipation of Slaves
in he District. Mr. Williams has been
quite busy during the past winter with
his new book, "History of the Negro
Soldiers during the Rebellion," he also
prepared the bill presented by Senator
Hoar for the erection of a monument to
colored soldiers and sailors, besides a
half dozen orations on different subjects.
Many, prominent men in the Distiict
think another National Convention
should be held shortly and have Indian
apolis as the place.
Virginia lias nine colored men in her
legislature, one of them now very
wealthy, as once sold to buy the very
grounds he now owns. When he ran
for the legislature his former owner, a
hard shell Democrat, said he was going
to vote for him because "he knew he
was honest and believed he would do
what was right."
J. Milton Turner, the ex-Minister to
Liberia, broke $300 worth of champaign
on the evening of his departed from

Hon. Frederick Douglass is in Egypt
studying the natives and their history.
His name has been cut on the very
summit of the great Cheops Pyramid, to

Prof. Cyrus Adams, the noted lin
quist, received a large number of letters

Several prominent young white women

legation. When the Chinese Minister
gave a ball this winter and invited 500
guests, a mob of 1,500 of the best society
people came surging into his legation
without notice or invitation. Now, by
all the Gods at once, what is there in a
Mongolian more than in an African to
cause the one to be lionized and the
other to be discarded? Its condition,
not color that regulates our social and
civil position and treatment.

his appointment through Secretary
of State Evarts who has been his con
stant friend and benefactor. During
his stay in Paris he became quite a
favorite with the Parisians and they de
lighted to have him tell of his struggles
and misfortunes. On one occasion when
he had several prominent Americans
under his charge showing them the
beauties of "La belle Paris" chancing to
stop at a Cafe for dinner at the request
of some of his Parisian friends he nar
rated seyeral incidents of his life in the
South. Some of the Americans whom
he was guiding seemed to grow figedy
and restless, some listened with interest
a few gave evident signs of disapproval,
but nothing was said until he recounted
his adventures with an Alabama mob,
how, when a mere boy, he had been al
most murdered in one of the political
riots so common in the south. Then
one man especially, broke in a tirade oJ
abuse, and finally ordered the young
man to hush up immediately. He did
not hush, however, and what was more,
he told the man, who by the way Avas ol

would not guide him another step, he
would have to find his way back to his
hotel as best lie could, and so he left the
man in the lurch, swearing to have the

by the various European powers, had it
not been for Langston. During the in
surrection which occurred during his
ministry there, citizens of different
European nationalities were abused in
property and person by the natives.
The English Minister drew up a paper
providing for the destruction of the Re
public which he desired to have signed
by the various ministeis resident.
Nearly all the ministers signed the
paper.Langston then withdiew from the
diplomatic corps, positively refused to
sign it and the proportion wasabandon

Minister Langston went to pay his re-
