DAILY APPEA ESTA.23LISECED 1840. MEMPHIS TElSnsr., THTJESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 1883. VOL. XLIII-.no. Q30 THE THE ElsVC'ATION OF TIIK NEGRO. A convention .of ncjrro Kpiscopal clergymen was lield reuently in New Vork ("itji, at which the enggcHtion was made by a Mr. CromtncU that what his race needed most wan not a university or collegiate education, but an industrial school education, by which girls could be tnuirht to sew, wash, iron and cool, and learn hubits of cleanliness, modesty and decency, and where youUR inen and boys might be technically trained in useful avocations. Mr. Croui lnell is evidently as much be hind in a knowledge of the facts of the education of the negroes of the South, as the mass of that race is behind the whites in the skill and ability to earn a living by handicraft ur.mits. What he recom mends with so much earnestness, aud the New York Ti ihmir inaluas the basis of a sneer at the white people of the South, as if it were something new, has for several years been part of the educational system of several of the leading negro schools at the South, notably the Lc Mnyiie school in this city, and with great success. But we are not sur prised at Mr. ('rommcll's ignorance. His church knows but little of the Jiegro and, if Mr. Tuck is to bo Relieved, it ought to care less for him. Hitherto it has left the "man and brother" to take care of himself morally as well as edu cationally, ami now tliul it is making an attempt to edge its way into the field so thoroughly occupied by the American Missionary Society, and by the Methodists and Baptists, it is not to be wondered at thai it blunders at every step and shames itself by its ignorance of the condition of the nc'jro and what has been done and is being done for his moral and mental elevation. We recommend Mr. Croni iiicll, and Mr. Turk, too, to pet the all -unal reports of the -American Mirsion;ry Society, of tic Southern and Northern Methodist Churches, mid of the African Methodist and Baptist Churches. From these they will find that more than $20, 4)00,000 have been expended by these re ligious organizations since 1-S(i( in build ing and mai nt inning handsome school houses ii which the negro has been trained and educated and fitted for the noble task and important duty of train ing aud educating ot!mr. They will lind. too, from these reports that .in all these years white men and women of learning and culture have labored, often in the faea of prejudice" and within earshot of contumely and hnto. to accomplish what Mr. ('rouimcll so much desires, and what Mr. Fred Douglass and his coadjutors of the Louisville convention do not seeinto care anything about. What these mis sionaries have done the world at large has made little note of. but the days are not fur distant when everywhere, throughout the South at least, it will Lis acknowledged as the greatest of all the great works ac;niipli,-hed in the (Vited States since 1Sm. From the J'otoniiic almost to the llio (irandc the academies and c;illegeg of the American Missionary Society are to bu found at Dearly all the large centers of Kpula tion, and they are flourishing because their work is a practical work and their imriMise the plain one of widening and deepening the stream of learning at WlllC-U lilt; UIIID ilmc.i ,'t' Km f-',tlU UJ Jriuk freely iiiid at will. 1 best; institu Hons are the r.-sults oi a generous benevolence, mid have been main tained by a sell-ilenying zeal worthy of the glorious Luther, whose , birth a pratetui worm is evcrywnero cele brating with gladness. Jt would do Mr. Croninieirs heart good, and Mr. Tuck's, too, if he would visit, them aud sei! for himself the wonders they perform aud learn of what tliey have done in years past. But if they cannot do that, we recommend them to read the reorls f the liev. Attieus i. llaygood, of Ox lord, Ja.. who. since he wrote the llrotlur in Hlurk, has latiiu lied into the work of furthering the education of the licj-TO with the zeal of a missionary aud the spirit of a soldier in a noble cause. Mr. liaygood. not long ago, made a tour of the South iu the interest of the fund for which he is the disposing agent, aud the result is a more fervent devotion to the ooJ work mid more fervid and appeal- ine sm-eultes in its helialt. A gallant CX onlrilerKl'" , a Southerner by birth and breeding, aiJ the son of a slaveholder. brought up. too, iu a wealthy planting section of Georgia, he entered upon Ins, at first, self appointed tusk :: a mere private, a , volunteer in the ranks whore ue found so many noble worker. But hi knowledge of the negro, of his capacity, aud his needs, mid the best methods of reaching practical educational results noon marked hiui for the high potitiouiic loliT occupies as the trusted aud confi dc nihil agent of a fund bequeathed by a beuevoltuit Northern man whose desire tiir the adiauceiiieiit nnd betterment of the negro Dr. Havgood is farthering by helping all the -chools ut the South that have these lor tuir objects. Already, in the first war of the existence of the fund this good, strong man finds eiieounU-iug results following upon wht he lias expended of it. and be pleads on every possible occasion with voice and pen for the extension of "the practical system of eilm-atjon so long pursued by the American Mission ary Association, and in which he sees the best possibilities of the dark race. Dr. Il-,vi,,l HiM-.-iks ulaiulv. as well as elo- ouentlv. lie calls a sfude a s:ade. He J.u-M not snare anv who set themselves in his wav or in the way of the work he has so much at Heart. He knows that edu cation makes every man hotter, stronger an..' happier than lie could be without it, and .be contends for it disseiuiuatiou v Ar.inulsion if other means fail of making U general, oi i.rtuging it into every Mian's house as essential to the mainteniiim id' the peace that passes all understanding. It is iu the nature oi things that such a man should encounter opposition; that he should -ven be re Tiled, abased and misrepreseutd. but he has otilv to ta'so counsel of thosij hO have occupied the field he is now in dur- i the past twenty war to find a sweet so lace aud a consolation for it all. He can read in their lives the openitm chapters l his own career iu the field of hegro education, hut he can also read ol a generous if Irmly recognition of their labors by the best educated won and women of the South, who willingly acknowledge their indebtedness to them fiir the patient, earnest, laborious work bv which iu so short a time nearly forty per cent, of the negro population has been taught to read and write, and so many thousands have been trained ami fitted after the most approved technical meth ods to teach in nciiro pnbliu schools and thus perpetuate the blessiugs ibey re joice in the possession of. Such a man a Dr. llaygood is worth to the uegro raco all the conventions like that at Louisville that will ever be assembled. Ho does mure good for white and black by the practical education of the latter in one year than all the negro politicians have ever accomplUkeJ. An educated man n.it take care ot his liberty and preserve ... , . . . . it from encroachment without l!)0 aid of fruthvaud noisy blatherskites, wbo fcave no objects that uro not for tbttir personal aggrandizement. lr. llaygo.id keeps this stedilv before the jieoplo he ad dresses, and all his efforts are poiuted that way. He Waows, and every Southern man knows that as the APPRAt.

While the Loalf was being read, J. W. Candler rose and addressed the presiding olheer, but was not recognized, ami remained stand ing until Col. Caveiiy finislHsl. As Col. Caveny ceased reading, N. A. I'lyinpton, of Worcester, roe and addressed the chair. Candler insisted on his right, but Krejich decided that Plvinpton had the lloor. This was greeted with hisses in several parts of the ball, and for a second there was quite a commotion. l'lympton then moved that the officers of the State Committee lie the temporary arganlzation oi.tlie. convention. This motion was declared curried, but was doubted, and an uproar ensued, which was promptly checked by French, who called iiMn tiie JU'v. Mr. Siuiins to oiler prayer. At the conclusion of the prayer French addressed the convention, lie spoke at some length on national allairs, reviewed the recent address of the Kepuhlican State Convention, referred to the administra tion of Gov. Butler in the highest terms, detailing the important events that have occmred the past year, and predicted a great victory lor the Democratic party throughout the country. .': u the condition of French's speech there was generous applause, and the various committees announced, t-ireat confusion and disorder tliwn prevailed and exeititinent ran high.

The Chicago lleenld, of luesdav morn-' ing, prints an interview between its edito rial correspondent and Senator Bayard, in which the latter spcuks of Ben Butler us follows: "Such men as lien Butler have worn the ass skin too long. It has grown to their bislics." "But Gov. Bullur claims he has alwuvs been a Democrat at heart, and that now he is only returning to nn allegiance which he never really deserted.

Xo, sir, Mr. Butler was the biltorest (oe, the must virulent enemy, the most uncompromising oppifticnt that the Demo cratic pnrtv had m those reconstruction lays. Whatsoever inav lie his protesta tions now, I can never forgot the fact that nueh, aye, most, of the lalior, the anx iety, the. humiliation of the parly to which t belong, caniu trom the wicked, base, per sistent nnd malicious ctloris of men in Congress like Butler; r.nd you say Mr. Butler professes this and that.

"But do von not think be bus a chance of re-election?" 'Yes, and more than a chance; and I will sav further that I hope he will be.

Secretary Folger has Just rendered tin important de cision with regard to the construction of section 7 of the new tari If law relating to the packages and coverings of imported merchandise. He holds that the cost or value of outside covering into which goods araJiuaily put for land apd ocean carriage is not to be taken as a part or in addition to the value of the goods, nor the value of the goods to be considered as enhanced by reason of that outside covering having been put aliout them. The cost to the manufacturer and wholesale foreign dealer of boxes, cartons, or other things which are put within or upon or aliout goods by him as part of his preparation of theiii for exposure to sale' is not to be in quired for as an arbitrary part of the market value, and that -' cash in the exact amount added to an already ascertained market value of the goods is part of tiie dutiable value thereof, though thai, cost may be an element in evidence of what is the value of the goods, and may so far lie considered the dutiable value of gixxls, is not to be the market value which they would have if they were ottered for sale witliont that preparation of inner boxes, cartons or other like things. The dutiable value of goods is the actual mar ket value or wholesale price thereof, in cond'tiou, finish and preparation for sale in which they are finally- offered by for eign merchants to negotiating customers and for which they will and do still them, though that value or price has been en hanced because of that finish? or prepara tion, and though a part of the preparation consists in placing in or upon or about giMsls, Ihixos, cartons, paper cards or other like things.

Lofisvit-i.E, Septemler 20. Tlie colored convention is given over to resolutions and buncombe. After a dozen attempts to resolve ns many sentiments this morn ing the following was ottered: THK FIRST HKKAK. Whkrkar, The administration of Presi dent C. A. Arthur has been at -harmony with the principles of the grand old Be publican party; therefore be it Jleaolettl, That this National Convention of Colored Men assembled give to the ad ministration their heartiest support. THIS CAI'SKll THE WII.OKST UPROAR, and the entire convention was on its feet The South and West hissed the resolution, while only a few from the Xorth and Hast appeared to favor it. Personal violence was offered in one instance, and the wild est uproar followed, but finally the reso lution, on motion of Herbert, of Louis iana, went to the Committee on Resolu tions. XO EXPRESSION OF OPINIO has yet been Cached, and it seems un likely that any will lie, owing to the pro pensity of the entire convention to talk at the same time. There is entirely too much oratorical ability present for any business to lie transacted. A strong feel ing exists to adopt Fred Douglass's seech as the sentiment ol the colored people of the I'nion, and have the same transmitted to Congress. A Kentucky delegate moved the follow ing, which made a GREAT CJ'KOAR: lietmlrert. That the colored people of the I'nited States, in convention assembled. do atlirm onr devotion anew to tho Re publican party, and will use onr utmost endeavors for its continued ascendency and control of the national government, believing it to be for .the best interest of the whole eople. 4 CU , VII V T. -1." The convention refused to adopt the resolution, many protesting against bring ing politics into the deliberations of the body, and only the wise decision of the chair in sending the question to the Com mittee on Resolutions saved the conven tion from a split. The convention this afternoon accepted the invitation of the general managers and visited the Kxposition iu a body. To-night a long list of speakers are ad dressing the convention and actual busi ness for the time is in abeyance. The chances are fair for an adjournment with out further actual results. TIIK ADDRESS A DOITED. 1 O'Clorl- A.M. Tho colored convention has just adopted the following address: The national convention of colored men assembled, respectfully present the follow ing an embracing and presenting their views and sentiments: Fint. That we are grateful and re joice in the miraculous emancipa tion that came to our race twenty years ago. The shock of embattled arms was lulled by "a nation born in a dav." We do not and cannot forget the great sac- nnca K ute women, also tno wan, uo made, possible the struggle in which treason ami slavery werw consigned to a common sepnlcher, nor would we be unmindful oi the measure of devotion and patriotism that the l.St,01 7 colored soldiers rendered to tho nation m the war for the preservation of the nation. tSectnul. We are not insensible to the fact that tfie Congress of the I'nited States has spread umu the statute books many laws calculated to make ns secure in our rurliui as citizens; nor would welie forgetful of the magnificent amendments to the con stitution intended to render forever im possible the crime of human slavery. Third. We do not ask any more class legislation. We have had enough of this, but we do believe that many of the laws intended to secure us our rights as citizens, are nothing more than dead letters. In the Southern Mates, almost without an excep tion, colored people are denied justice in the courts, denied the fruits of their honest labor, defrauded of their po litical rights at the ballot-box, shut out from learning trades, cheated out of their civil rights by innkeepers, common car rier companies, and left by the States to an inadequate opportunity for educa tion and general improvement. Fourth. We regard the lalior question education and sound moral training para mount to all other questions. We lie- lieve that these questions, especially in the South, need recasting, and the planta tion credit and mortgage system should le abolished. Honest .lalior should he re numerated. J he landholders o( the .south should reoigniite that this question is to tie solved nv encouraging negroes to dustry, frugality aud business hal- T... " I i.t .1 - . r km, oy iiiciung lueiu tu lluifllN 01 thrift, bv assisting them to acquire an interest in the soil, by paving them honest wages lor honest work, and bv making them contented and happy in the land of their nativity. White men and owners of the soil in the South can settle, the question of lalior ami capital between the whites ami blacks. We. lieljeve that a broad, com prehensive system looking toward the ed ucation of young colored girls, so thev mav become intglligentand faithful women, and voting colored bovs mav learn trades and Is'conie useful inep and good citizens, religious and moral training of tho youth 01 our race feiiouui not ue neglected, the hoH of every people Is adherence to social, logical and ethical principles.
