The first convention of colored Democrats ever held in a Northern State assembled at Albany, N. Y, on the 26th ultimo, fifteen counties being represented. The platform adopted by the convention con tained among other sentiments the following : "There are to-day in our coun try 147,000 legal colored voters. We believe that it is neither sound politics nor good statesmanship that they should unalterably at tach themselves to one party, and base their demands on the needs, wants and desires of thenegro rather than ot the citizen, and that the accident of color should not control the way in which men should vote That if our brethren in the South are subjected to the alleged law lessness and violence called 'South crn outrages,' the story of which every four years fills the organs of the Republican party, then that party was worthy of neither confi uence nor respect, ineso same proscriptions, prevailed under the Republican party, with eyery branch ot the national (j-overn ment in its control during twenty years of power lawfully held and four years' supremacy obtained by Alter rehearsing the failure of bayonet rule under Grant, and do-nothing rule under Hayep, and contrasting the peaceable con dition of the South under the late Democratic administration, it con tinuee: "Tbe Democratic party is the poor man's party; it is the exponent of labor, which is our lot. We are consumers; we have no place in the protected manufactories, and this cornea through an unjust, unreason able and cruel prejudice, which debars us from equal opportunities in educational, material and moral advancement. Government is crea ted for the good of the greatest number, for the, laboring masses rather than for the few who employ them. The key to the tariff that contains the solution of all the problems is the interest of labor.' To this the Democratic party is committed, with, its history of struggles for tho benefit of paid labor iu the V!a8t "e live in a new era. O'd things have passed away; all things have become new. The dead past buries its dead. The day of sycophancy and truckling and sentimental politics has pass ei. The demand of the honr is lor en; men with atron-g convictions; men to develop an runcaiionai citizenship; new men. with new ideas suited to a new era." How will these sentiments, bold, and clear, and truthful, strike the ranting "Radicals, the partisan South haters of the North?. it means patriotism; it means lib" erty; it means "equal rights to all and special privileges to none"; and all these are to be found only in the South, where Democracy reigns 1 a 1 supreme and nncontammated, and the colored people as they become intelligent and lay aside prejudice and rise to the comprehension of destiny recogniza the people of the South as their best friends and the Democratic party as the most trust worthy custodian of their liberties and progress and happiness. Mr. Deacon, who was recently sentenced to a short term of itn prisonment iu France for killing M. Abeille; pronounces his name De Con" tnd is very French in every respect; but when he testified in his own defence, the other day, the jury requested him to speak through an interpreter. The aver age Frenchman's ignorance of his own language when spoken with a perfect Boston accent, is simply amazing. Tbe Force BUI. We have feared the passage of a Force bill by the next Uongrees We feared ttfat it might be taken up and passed contrary to the wishes of the people. It is a ques tion which we would be willing to submit to the popular vote. The following paragraph on this sub iect is irom the New York World, "It is reported that m his talk with, Ularkson Mr. Harrison ex pressed a desire for a 'strong plank in layor ot a force bill in the Minneapolis platform. If the convention will oblige Mr. Harr rison in that respect it will confer a very great and highly appreciat ed favor upon the Democracy of the country. The people have made up their minds on the force bill question." 1 ossibJy Mr. Harrison said what is here attributed to him. At any rate he is strongly committed to a force bill of tome sort, and would like to haye the whole Republican party in the same predicament in which that committal places him If the President's party will carry out his suggestion and put a plank in the Republican creed fayoring the force bill we ehall not afterwards fear that bill. Its sur reptitious passage, or passage by a Congress elected on other issues, is what we fear. Richmond Dis patch. Secretary Blaine Resigns. In lieu of a letter in regard to the Presidential nomination, some- what expected by the public from Mr. Blaine, the Secretary of State has given a new impetus to apeeu lation by resigning his office. His letter of resignation wa3 Bent to the President yesterday about noon, and was promptly accepted. This course by Mr. Blaine may mean that he is either satisfied that he will he nominated at Min- neapolis, or that he has made up his mind to enter the race at all hazards, and desires to free him- self from the suspicion of haying ODDOsed the President while a member of his cabinet, or he may be carrying out a purpose, hinted at several months ago, of resigning. The zeal manifested in behalf of tbe Secretary by his friends at Minneapolis leaves the inferrence that he has ".striped for the race." If he does appear before the con- vention it isvesy probable that his nomination will be assured on the first ballot. No man in the Re nnblican nartv has so stroncr a hold upon the masses of his party as Mr. Blame.

Raleigh Qrronicle. priety, sobriety and diligence, your THK OF "02" The following is Mr. Gralle'e his class of our pat ting words to Graded School that graduated on Friday ; They ppeak for themselves and commend themselves to the careful perusal of all our readers : My Young Friends : Old " Father Time ", with rapid strides, has brought us to the close of the session. The hour has come or us to separate: probibly we may never an meet again, hence I feel like saying a few part ing words to you. It has been a great pleasure tor. me to impart to you what instruc tion I have been able to give- our deportment has been all that I could ask I have found you studi ous ; our intercourse has been ex ceec-agiy pleasant to me, and now, give me your hands,my dear young friends, and I will lead yon to the dark passages and the rugged steeps. whose forbidding shadows tall gloomily on the highway of life. I will also conduct you to the green and sunny spots whereon you may indulge m innocent delights. Open 1 I T Ml vonr hearts to my counsels i x will teach you how to escape the teem mg dangers, which, like troops ot ill omend phantoms, wait in the u,,irv'; - j ..... his destrnct on. I wiil nniold to you the secrets ot success and or eminence in this life, and the sure means of winning a crown ot glory in the next ! It is, without a doubt, a to-. j yous thought to you, thai wn have become young men and women. Manhood has long been the fairy land of your boyhood's reveries, lour lull ueart swells, as you exclaim : " Time on my brow has set his seal ; I start to find myself a man ". Y our spirits flow in swift cur rents of feeling, and your lively imagination paints the most in viting pictures of the fntnr. To yon, lite is the lovely vale of Arno, with its enchanting scenery of groves and gardens, grottoes, palaces and towers ; its transparent lakes, delicious air, and sunny ekies. You can comprehend the poet, who says : " To sanguine youth's enraptured eye, Heaven has its reflex in the sky, The winds themselves have melody, Like harp, some seraph sweepeth ; A silver decks the hawthorn bloom, A legend shrines the mossy tomb, And spirits throng the starry gloom, Iter reign when midnight keepeth . It seems a pity to dim so fair a vision. 1 teel sad, as 1 proceed to break the sweet enchantment, and by touching it with the wand of truth, to overcast it with clouds and storms. But I should not be a faithful friend, if I did not assure you that these rosy anticipations are destined to be followed by dis appointment. You must, aud will learn, the truthfulness ot the hol lowing sweetly solemn strain : " Little we dram when life is new And nature fresh and fair to view, When throbs the heart to pleasure true. As if for naught it wanted That year by year, and ray by ray, Komance s sunlight dies away, And long before the hair is gray The heart is disenchanted . Let us walk forth into tho fields, and learn a lesson from yonder husbandman. He is casting band fuls of seed broadcast upon the up turned soil. A moment 8 renec-- tion teaches yon that very much ot the forthcoming harvest lepends npon that sower and hia seed. If he has properly chosen and pre- pared the soil, it the seed be ot high quality, if it be sown in proper quantity ,and harrowed with due skill, the conditions ot good and abundant harvest are fnlfilled, a:id may be reasonably expected. But it he has scantily sown, poor seed in an nngenial and neglected soil, a good harvest is out of the question. The application ot this ngnre to yourself is easy. i ou are now a sower ot.seea on the field of life. These bright days of youth are the seed time. Every thought of your intellect, every emotion of your heart, every word ot your tongue, eyery prin ciple you adopt, every act yon per form, is a seed, whose good or evi W,H be the bliss or bane of yonr alter time. As is the seed, so wil be the harvest. Indulge your appetites, gratify your passions, neglect your intel- lect, foscer wrong principles,cherish naDits or idleness, vulgarity, dissi pation, and in after years of man- hood you . will reap plentifully of corruption, shame, degradation,and Nightmare of youth.the spectre of yourself But -if you control vonr appetites I subdue your passions, firmly adopt harvest will be one of liouor,bealth, happiness ; .Mad - "After tim'-. ' . ' And that full voice which circles round The grave, wui rank you nobly." That you have reached the pe riod of youth is, therefore, for you a very serious fact, "tirvat desti nies lie shrouded" iu j-our swiftly passing hours. Great rcsponsibiii ties stand in the passages of every day .life. Great dangers He hidden in the by paths of life's great high way; and syreiif, whose pongs are as charming a? the voice of Calyp so, are there to allure you to de struction. Great uncertainty hangsover your futnre history. God has given yon existence, with full power and opportunity to imn prove it, and bo happy. IJe has given yon iqaal power to despite the gift, and be wretched. Which you will do ia the grand problem to be solved by your ehoice and conduct. To yon, so young, so inexperienced, po suceptibe of evil, so capable of good, so full of stormy feelings, eo unsettled in opinfon, is committed the awful trust of jour future happiness. Yonr blise, or misery, in two world, hangs poised in the bal ance. The manner in which yon spend your youth will turn "the scale for weal or for woe. Verily, it has been well said that "the season of youth is a criti cal period." Critical, indeed! And I would, if possible, engrave the thought, in ineffaceable letters, on inr susceptible hearts, and make n feel how much the fashioning of your destiny, which hitherto has been more in the hands of others than in your own, is now confided to your discretion. As a boy at home, you have sailed upon the calm waters of a quiet river, in a rark, carefully furnished by a mother's love, and safely guided by a father's skill. Now you are sailing through the winding chan nels, the rocky straits, the rapid, rushing currents, at the river's month into the great sea of active ite. And here for the first time you are in command of the vessel. On yonr skill and caution depends tha safety of the passage. Neglect the rules laid down on the chart of experience by previous navigators, take passion for a pilot, place ioi ly at the helm, and your bark will shortlv be a pitiable wreck on the rocks, or be so dam aged as to peril your safety on the coming voyage. But 6tudy well the intricacies and dangers of your course, take counsel of experience, let caution be your pilot, and with out doubt, you will escape rock, current, eddy and whirlpool, and with strcamered masts and a big white sail, fl-at gayly forth to dare and conquer the perils ot the sea beyond. Passion is strong because Reason is weak; Desire eager, be cause it must not be gratified. Your heart is a volcano of feci ing, ever heaving and seeking, es pecially wnen in the presence of the outward tempter, to overflow your life with vice and abomina- tion. And herein 1 solemnly re peat it lies yonr most imminent danger. These views are certainly snfll cient to dim the lustre of those day dreams of life, so natural and so universal in young people. Perhaps yon consider them too sombre and gloomy in their as pects. Yon complain that I have dipped my pen in the too sobor hues of autumn, when I on ht to have written with the bright drops which sparkle like jewels on the gay blossoms and painted flowers of spring; that 1 hare caused you to despond, when 1 should haye stimulated your hopes and excited your courage. But such is not my intention, nor should aught have said occasion the least de spondency; it should only awaken caution caution, the parent of safety, the companion ot success Up, then, with a heroic spirit and gird yourself tor mortal con flict with the great Apollyon who bestrides your pathway. If he has subdued thousands, thousands have also subdued him.. And yon, too may be his conqueror. Success 18 before you, if you resolutely and wisely seek it. And now, my friends, l am sor ry to give np my class of 492," although I am going to my home, to my dear -mother and father, yet the ioy of meeting my own . kind red is much diminished - by tbe sorrow of parting with yon. came here at the beginning of the session a stranger to you. A mere boy myself, it was with a heart ful of misgiving that I commenced the session. 1 shall ever be gratefn for the forbearance ol your worthy Superintendent and Faculty shall carry with me ' through life an affection and the highest re spect for the good people of Golds boro, and now I maat bid you farewell. "Farewell! that word lias broken hearts And blinded eyes with tears; Farewell! one stays and one departs; Between them roll the years. Adieu! such is the word for us, ' 'Tis more than word 'tis praye ; They do not part, who do part thu. kji iuu is ev;rywuere.

This gentleman, who was unex pectedly Called into service, spoke perfectly at his ease, and "thoughts that breathed and words that burn ed" was the staple of his discourse. interspersed with flashes of humor that were the conceptions of the mo ment, and, therefore, the more high ly enjoyed. His review of the "scheme of life," so to speak, the virtue of education, the individual responsibility and that of the State, the relation of the citizen to the State, the duties of the former to wards the latter, was most admira bly outlined and impressively por trayed. W e are sure the class of 92 will not soon forget Lis words of wisdom or ever outlive the influence for good they will be in their live3. The graduating class consisted of nine members, the smallest, we be lieve, in the history of the school, aud tne youngest, ou the whole. They were Misses Edna Weil, Mamie Hicks, Ltta Spier and Barbara Isler, and Masters Robert Miller, Jas. Crawford, Jas. Lewis, Paul Stanley and W. W. Crawford, Jr. At the conclusion of Judge Con- mr s remarks and the delivering ot the Diplomas,Superintendent Joyner spoke some earnest words of com mendation of Mr. W. 11. Cralle, Principal of the school, and whose peculiar charge the graduating class was during their finishing year, and who has tendered his resignation, as heretofore announced. Mr. Joyner expressed in feeling word3 his own personal regret and that ot the teachers, the pupils and the Board of Trustees, all of whom have learned to esteem Mr. Cralle most hiffhly. His farewell address to his class was beautiful,eloqnent and deep ly impressive. We are glad to know that thev have secured the manu script and will give it to The Argus for publication in Sunday s issue.
