Editors Clarion: I have read the
able articles from the pen of a ''MUsrit
sippi Woman" with pleasure, but in TOW
issue of November 1, 1882, occur thete
words: "If women arc educated as men
and with men, they are apt t,, become
mannish and unwomanly, desiring to do
a man'- work. In support 0f this may
be cited those female.-, in States where
co-ducation i- practiced, who are clam
oring for the ballot, and pressing their
way into profe-sions exclusively designed
for men."
I think my friend has formed her
judgement hastily ami from a few iso

Editors Clarion : There is probably
no cause that should interest all w ho

prevail in our laud than that of the es
tablishment and successful maintenance
of Sunday Schools. They are the nurserv

ident of the Hind- County Sunday
School Convention, expressed it more
forcibly, "(he Military Institute to edu
cate endets to lead the army of Sunday
School workers who had to ht the hat
ties of religion against her enemies."
The meeting of the Hinds County
Sunday School Conventional Utiea, last
Thursday ami Friday, was just such an
occasion as it. does every man good to
attend, whether a protested christian or
not. andjj was gratifying to a spectator,
as vour cOrresDondent wan. to see the
Baptists, Methodists and Presbyterians
were as one hand of brothers and sisters,
and it was really good to be there.
The Convention desired tore-elect Mr.
F. H. Emerson, the excellent christian
gentlemen holding the position of Pres

and was succeeded by another good
man, Mr. Frank R. Carloss, of Terry,

Farther on the in her article she says:
"How can a christian mother pray 'lead

daughter at this formative period of her
life to be surrounded by youths and
young men from all parts of the coun

Rut could we at will waive the fiat of the
Almighty, and select a period in liie
when the sexes should be separated, to
my mind -and I speak from a wide op
portunity for observation and the expe
rience of nearly half a century -that at
this period of all others they should lie
thrown together. Very much of the
glamour and illusion that so many of
the young weave in regard to each other
would be dispelled if they met on an equal
arena in the class room; then if a young
lady or gentleman was habitually idle
and neglectful of their studies, their
true worth would be apparent, and each
would stand 011 his or her own merit.

mother, and must feel that she had orig

her daughter, if w hen she bad attained
the proper age and mental culture, to
enter any college or university -he could
not send her forth feeling that the puri
ty of her heart and life was an impregna
ble wall about her, and that hcriiilluenee
would ever be elevating, and refining,
clothing all who came w ithin her circle
with her ow n spotless garment of purity.
Another correspondent "Eydor," in
speaking of the opening of our State
University to ladies said, "a few who
were brave enough entered the lists."
Allow me to ask the simple question,
how much more bravery does it require
to enter the. class-room and recite under
the eve of the teacher, than to attend a

dance with a young man she would not

Sir Win. Matthews, LI.. D., author of
some valuable works, says: "The sexes
were made for each other: it is from the
other, that each gets the most, and the
best, of the material for its culture, and
no scheme that ignores this truth can
ever succeed, because the sentiments,
the instincts, the irrepressible longings
of human nature arc all against it."

give their tune and valuable services to
the Sunday School e.iii-e; and side by
side with them w ere ever so many devoted
women who had come to Utiea from all
parts of the county to lend their aid and
their encouragement to the good cause,
the pa-t year wo have had
inquiries concerning oppor-
gate- of nineteen Sabbath Schools, there
were a good many ministers and visitors
in attendance, but it was remarked with
regret that the Presbyterian and Baptist
Sabbath Schools of Jackson had no rep
resentatives there. Mr. V. J. Rrowti,
Jr., however, represented the Jack son
Methodist Sabbath School very ably,
and in the absence of representatives
from the other Schools in .Jackson he
gallantly spoke for them also, and
throughout was a most valuable member
of the t Convention.
Mr. F. H. Emerson, the President of
the Convention, had previously pub
lished a most admirable programme one
week ago, so that when the Convention
met the delegates knew what would be
the oriler of the exercises and w hat sub
jects w ere going to be discussed ; the pro
gramme was as follows;
1. Statistical reports from Sunday
schools by their representatives; these
must be written.
2. Remarks upon the condition of the
Sunday school cause throughout the
3. What constitutes the chief elements
of success in a Sunday school ?
1. The work of the Sunday school and
i;s relation tot he church.

tion to the Missionary operation- of the
7. What are the duties of parent-and
guardian- with respect to the Sunday
.scliool T
8. How can wo bring about a greater
zeal lor this glorious cause :
In addition to the above, upon th(
morning ot tin- nr.-t (lav. a special com
mittee was appointed to report addition
al subjects lor discussion to the ( omen
tion. This committee through its chair
man, Rev. (!. W. Boggs, reported tin
following questions, all of which will be
tounii interesting ami valuable sugges
tions to other Sabbath School Conven
tions still to be held in Mississippi:
1. Should we not, as christians, en
deavor to extend to the colored peopli
among us, the benefits of the Sabbath
school ?
"2. How can we best secure for our
Sabbath schools a sound literature'.
!!. Who ought to go to Sabbath school '.'
4. Sinio of the causes of failure in
the Sabbath school.
6, The best means of promoting reg
ularity of attendance on the part of
teachers and pupils.
6. Qualifications of Sabbath school
7. Character of a Sunday school
X. Why I love my Sunday school?
9, Whether Sabbath schools are not
often made attractive at the expense
of spirituality and usefulness?
The discussions upon all the various
questions submitted to the Convention
were of the most interesting character
upon both days, hut upon 110 question
was the debate more elaborate and more
closely contested than that upon the sub
ject of supplying Sabbath Schools to the
colored people ; while all admitted the
necessity of Sabbath Schools among
them several argued that the colored
people wished no interference ujkjh the
part of the whites; that through the
prejudice of sditics the time had not
arrived yet for white Sunday School
workers to Accomplish any good among
them, and the speakers upon that side
eaVc accounts of minute and protracted
efforts to that end made by them for
vears; but enuallv as pertinacious were
. 1 the speakers upon the other side of the
question, tney contended that the door
was now wide open and that the
Convention should enter upon the work
at once. Finally, the question was get
tied by adopting resolutions of sympa
thy with the colored people' and the
offer of tssistance in the Sunday School
work upon the part of the whites when
ever called Upon; and a request that the
Vice-Presidents of the Convention give
the subject their attention.
Interesting debates wort had uimn
some of the other questions, also. The
exerci.-es were iiiterpcrscd throughout
with the best of singing, and at noon
every day the Convention partook of a
nut sumptuous dinner under the love

think he is the author of the Claiborne

less approved them. We are absolutely
certain that Maj. Barksdale is not the
author, and that he never saw or heard
of them, until they were introduced ami
