moral training of our youth
There is too err?t, neglect of t his important work, among the min istry and the general church. There needs to bc a mere earnest ei?ort ou the part of the whole membership, io save the youth of the present generation. In them center all the hopes for the fu ture of our race Their moral training must be of au enabling character, because on this will rest their hopes of heaven. Let the church awake to this great ?work. Let the old men aid by their councils, the aged women, by their deep christian piety at home, around their ?Le side, pour ing out the sweet incense of chris tian love to .their households; making homes tho happiest place on earth, tor their children, and God's truth the foundation of all their efforts. Let the young men take hold on every means of developement for themselves, as well as the church of their choice be earnest iu the sunday school, in the lecture room, in the dissemi nation o? light and truth. Let the young women in tue church do all they can, to.make themselves efficient workers in all the de t partments of life.in the Sunday school, in society, and seeking the~]>s^r and needy; while they instruct the ignorant, and quali fy themselves hi all that shall aid them iu making the world better yb their ?vinir in ir. Let tue preachers be earnest,urgent.in im piessing the truth upon the minds of those that hearthem. Let the leaders be earnest in instructing those committed to their careiu the church, let the stewards be awake to the full discharge of I their duties. Let the trustees j be vigilant in securing church | accommodations for the people, su- j perintendents of Sabbath schools; prompt in sirran aing thylr^wprkj and teachers tull of fai'h in? daly, and ihe church will work with God in saving the world. THE COLORED TRIBUNE.-is received lt is a small ' youngster'" but is withal: live ly and daring. Edited by Mr. Pe/ereaux Savannah Ga. We bid this little corporal a hearty welcome, and wish it a speedy growth and a long life. Thc colored people of Georgia are sadly* in want of something to defend themselves with, from their '.friends." HIE AFR WAX COMPANY. We print this week a circular issued by Ludlow Apjones, and Kev. ?i. W. Amett of Cincinnvtti Ohio , in reiatiou to "Ihe African Company." The subject is one worthy of the earnest consideration by those who are iutt rested i*) the develope ment of the African Continent, and of encouraging those of" the race in this coun try. To the young men of our race who are now qualifying themselves by educa tion, and business capacity to enter rhe wide ?eld of mercantile relations, as well as agricultural pursuits. This field is the most inviting. 1'he time is now, when the negro race must establish for itself a character, and powers, TShich will compel? the respect of all other nation. THE CHRISTIAN RECORDER. The Recorder conies like a whirlwind this week.-sweeping everything before it Dr. Tanner challenges the lathers on their passage and bids them unload before they move another step toward the brigatand better land, exclaiming that, the church demands their contributions to her histo ric page of the future, aud with bis accus tomed acuteness, disturbs even those who have neglected to pei form that duty before departing. Well, let him continue his aggressive movements aud he may secure to the church at least a large number of facts which belong to the coming generation, as the work and labors of the fathers. i3re. Lankfcrd brandishes his flashing cimeter at the venerable bishop and clips the robes skit ts, in a masterly style, it will put men to thinking tlpu>di". The general make up is excellent.

It io characteristic of a Great Bird that it CUD scent anything that :s corrupt, 1 trom a great distance. This is a power inherent, nothing can escape its keen scent. Yon cannot bury a ca'eas deep enough to proveat it finding it ; during the war these birds followed in tue wake of thc armies, and made their meals off the dee&vcd men and animals found on tho fields. The Democratic party since its advent into power, has been true to its character, and Laving during the fifty seven year? of its former control of tho government, did more stealing, and fostered more corrupt enterprises than could be enumerated at this time, have enaugurated their new reign by smelling, probing, aud oxuming all thc rottenness and corruptions of the repub lican party, and are now holding them up as testimony fchac they, thc democracy are the party whom the people ought to trust with the government. They have done no single act which benefits the country, or thc suffering millions-of laboriog people; they are not prepared to enaugurate any financial policy to meet the demands of the people, they have done nothing to aid the restoration of our shipping interest, nothing to encourage commercial growth, nothing to encourage agricultural prosperity, nothing to stay thc tide of discontent which now sweeps over the land-nothing, to deviate the waists of the tjilliug millions of all sections j of thc country. But they are only desirous of traducing their opponents, and holding up to contempt the failures and misdoings of the present party in power. Their's is indeed a smelling, and investigating party; and this they do to hide their own deformed character, and ulterior designs, of usurping the powers of gevemment, and agaiu io rule with their rod o*' iron. They only want a chance 2nd they will do worse thau the republicans ever did- While many corrup-.ions havs resulted from the d? charge of the duties of government, by officials, it is equally true that all thegrea* measures which have mace the nation great strong, and united, were enaugurated by and made pcrminent the republican party. Freedom to the enslaved, law, and order, safety to person and property, thc maintainance of the union one and insep erable was the work of Republicanism, aud while curruptionist in the party may fall and be forgotten, the principles of Liberty, unity, and safety; ail rights to ali men, arid, the perpetuity of the union, belongs to the great principies of the party now, directiag the affairs of nation. TUE POLITICAL OUTLOOK IN 'HIE STATE. Amid thc whirl of events, and the cou" sequent changes that will come this fall, a mighty revolution will take place in the, State. This is thc year of general reckon ing with public servants, in every depart ment of the State government, and wc suppose that thc people ure glad, for we have been burdened, in a most fearful manner. If the people are wise, they will now make careful selections of public officers, as ail will be changed this vear It might not be out of place io review the doings of those who have been entrusted with the public confidence, two years will have elapsed when we shall choose a Governor, and State officials again. Has thc preseut incumbent of the Executive chair fulfilled his every pledge in good faith, aud carried out the behest of those who elected him? has he in good faith proved adequate to thc trust imposed'.'' lc is believed on all sides that he has. to a grout degree fulfilled his pledges, made to the party nominating him ; in general there can be no great complaint made against him, he has dealt fair with all classes in. a geneaal way, andi yet there are mutterings against him in j some quarters, which need explanation. It is alleged that he has played "double" with the Legislature, iu his efforts to secure the passage of measures cf Reform and Retrenchment, lt is said that he gave bis aid and counsel in having certain bills passed through the Assembly, which were regarded as for the general good, aud when public opinion, or rather thc Bress expres sed dissent to them, that he vetoed them, thus throwing the responsibility ou the ? membeis of the Legislature of passing it j over his veto, this they say was double dealing with them, for the purpose of making capital, for himself at thc expense of the members, this is a grave charge, and if true, will subject him to a severe ordeal at the coming Convention in Columbia. There may have been some more important question involved in those bills than ap peared on the first consideration of their ? provisions: which induced thc actiou of his j Excellency in those particulars; these ire j the most potent offences of which he is charged by those who complain of him. The Deuiooiacy do not complain, but believe him to be unable to carry his party in the future, and they have lost all hope I of his success as a candidate this year; believing this, they have already abandoned j ihejr old line of policy-of fusing with Re-i publicans, iii anything this Campaign, anti ha-'e cumpi dud. ur. are completing their organizations ?or vie-tory over ali Republi can cand?ate and measures this year; they regard this Centennial year as ?jie auspi ciuus era in which the Democr cy an- to return to power, and control o? Uic Federal Gcveniment; and as they have a. majority in thc Congress, they must of a necessity have control in every ?State in the Union. This is natural for them to watt conirol, their vc organization iu this State contem plates the wresting of the State from Republicans at thc next Election, this being the last Republican Stale in the South, lt now becomes a suljectoi careful consideration, with every Republican as to whether, the Democracy shall deprive the Republican majority of this Stitc? Are the Colored people ready to surrender all to that Tarty, which has voweel to drive every Republican from office ana Power in the State, and replace them, with^heir own democratic friends, wno are oppefeed to the education of the Colored cMidrc?who do nothing, to aid the material dcvplopement of that class who are the laborers of the State*/ These are questions which will enter into every man's family, ^eeause it effects his wife and children, it frill oe of importance for them to eoquirefas to the condition of the colored people in the Counties now controlled by the Democracy. The most safe way to understand a party, is to know and see what iv. does, for rhe people when in power. It is proverbale that, in every County^ where the democracy control the Schools, there is no schools for colored children, or if there are, the Tiustecs find it very convenient to close them long before the white schools are, closed, when they can always fini inferior teachers for colored children ^_all ".hese signs point unmistakably t) the true spirit of that party as applied to its workings. It becomes a question vital to;the poor, whether ?hey arc to le put under the watch care of those who say " No Republicans need apply to join in auy duties which are for the saicty and well being of <he Stato, thc Democracy have given it out that they will not join with Republicans^to secure good Govern meii?, if ikey can get it icithvut their aid. Let the Republicans be worned and move upon their works at on<e, organize in every County, and be prepared in time. THE death of the late William Whipper in the city of Philadelpnia on tte 9th inst, has shrouded us with gloom. The loss of this great, and good man, is nb common affliction. --The greatness of ?ost men, like objects seen through a mist himinishes with che distance; but our bJ?yvcd and inginy e'sreem'eTt friend", ??Ke'a *M?C.? t.Jeu afar off under a clear sky, rosW^ii gran deur and.with every step of approach. He was a man beloved by all, and disliked by iionc. lhere was in him that sweetness of tone; that purity in his manners; that affecting gracefulness ia his instructions; that sublimity in his maiimg; that pro found wisdom iu his discourses; that pres ence of mind, that sagacity and propriety in his answers, that created for him a world of admiring friends, He took life as though it was-as it is-23. earnest, vital, essential affair tic took it just as though he was personally born to the task of performing * merrvpart in it. as though the world had waited for his corning, he took it as if it was a grand opportunity to dc and achieve; to carry forward great and good purposes; to help and chee? a suffer ing, weary, it may be hear: broken brother, or friend. Thin was his mission, this was his life. Ile closed a life of To years, a wonder to the world, icuniied, and idolized, though dead, he still lives in the hearts of many, Sad is the fact that he is no more, gone, gone, gone., That noble heart beats no more; that eye of tenderness is dimmed; and scaled are those lips from which so many expression of kindness has droped upon many burning bosoms, We will remember thee. We have not another such a man to die. RICHARD WASHINGTON, who ??swell known in Morris St. who for'years has kept a shoe shop ia Morris St. died on Thursday morning, after un illntss of two days. Ile was stricken with p^-aly-ies on monday night, and did not [.peak after wards; he was a faithful christin in the church, au untiring worker in rle Sunday School, a devoted servant of thc cause of Christ, ever doing all in hisj power to forward the cause of humanity, full of good deeds, full of noble aspiration; having fought th* ?rood fcrht of faith.
