In conjunction with the Bee, the mana gers havo established a Newu Bureau of the Colored Press. We are prepared to furnish biouraphies, special corretpondence and news items at a reasonable price. The object of the bureau is to furnish colored journals with special Washington letters when they have no special correepoudenta. We have some of the best writers in the country connected with the bureau, which will enable UBto furnish truth ful, spicy and conciBe correspondence. Give the Xcwb Bureau a ca.lL Marshal McMichael has discharged every negro bailiff. President Arthur must know something about it One thing can be relied upon that if -there shall be such a thing in 18S4 as a National Republican Convention, ithere won't be any "dark horse busi tness." Without the solid negro vote in Ohio, Indianna, 2sev York, Kansas, Michigan and Minnesota, what can the Republican party expect to do in fin 1884? Instead of Hon. George "V. "Williams telling us what our future would be, he told us what our duty should be, has ibeen and is now. He has gone to look for the future of the negro. From the looks of things about this time one can safely imagine that Mr. Robert T. Lincoln will be the Repub lican and General Benjamin F. Butler, the otiher, whatever tlje name may be, candidates to be voted for at the next Presidential election. "The Bee (ijy the way, busiest journalistic sting on the C. P.) scores a point in being selected as the organ of the colored Washingtonias." The People' a Defense. This scores us one ahead of the colored press. The "Weakly Weekly," The Peojdes Advocate declines to discuss the writ ing aesK wnu us. This is not surpris ing to us, we have banished all frauds with but a few exceptions. "We shall climb betimes without remorse or dread, and our next step bhall be on William's History of the Negro." The letter of Mr. W. IT. Black found iin another column of this paper as sures us that the Sunday Capitol has tbasely lied. The president may or may mot remove Col. Ditty, but the day Col. Ditty is removed, Mr. Hal ten will be Heft at home. President Authur should consider well before he decides to re move Col. Dittv. President Arthur takes the right to remove men from positions who are friendly to the negro, but those demo igogues who are the enemies of the oppressed race and the Republican iparty, are let alone and complimented There is C. B. Purvis, of the Freemen's Hospital, who has no idenity with the colored race, kept in a poiition against" the will of the people. The Bethel Literary h;is introduced ian English gag law prohibiting the (freedom of speech. We would not support such an institution presided over by a foreign cock-sparrow. If Mie Bethel people desire to see their church prosper and bring to their lit erary more wealth and brains let them remove from their midst this unpolished Englishmen who is a nuisance to com mon society, let alone to respectability. Professor R. T. Greener was decided, ly wrong when he said that Hon. Fred. Douglass was used as a cats paw for the white men, when he was made "President of the Freedmen's Bank. .Fraudulent representations were made ta'him by a white man's nigger, Robert Purvis. We agree with you Professor when you said that the Purvises were used.asaeats paw. If Senator B.K.Bruce ihad not abolished the bank and cut off the salary, good for nothing Robert Purvis would not have deserted the Republican party. A Colored Lawyer por 'Albe marle. R. C. 0, Benjamin a young colored man, referred to in compli mentary terms in the Wheeling papers, as "lawyer, orator and poet," has been in Charlottesville for several weeks, and announces his purpose to locate permanently with a view to the practice of law and the publication of a newspaper. He will apply for license next Monday. The young barrister is a graduate of Lincoln University, and has for some time past been teaching in the Southern States. Charlottes ville Chronicle. We endorse the above from the Charlottesville Chronicle and hope that Mr. Benjamin will be successful in his new field of enterprise. From the tone of the colored.pjess now, there does not seem to be a full, free and enthusiastic whoop for the G, O. P.,ind why is this thus? "Well,we don't pretend to know fully and jail the way through, but it seems tb our mode of thinking that the Republican mana gers have gone back, away back, on the "faithful allies." The conduct of the Forty-Seventh Congress in the case of Judge Samuel Lee, of South Carolina, refusing to award him the seat he was fairly (and so proven to Congress) elected to; the Republican senators refusing to confirm the five tried Re publican colored men, nominated by the President, the Senators preferring to suit Senator Butler of South Caro lina, in his whims and political hatred of negroes holding office in that State, rather than do the right thing by the "faithful allies" are but the coming straws which show which way the wind is blowing. The colored troops have had "taffy" for fifteen years, now they want something more substan tially sticking. Commissioner Edmunds. It is firmly believed that Hon. James B. Edmunds, Commissioner of the District of Columbia, intends to do the riuht thing towards the colored people. What we need now is a change in our public school system. "We speak the sentiments of the colored people of this city. "We know that a change would better the condition of the public schools. "We are confident that Mr. Edmunds has the interest of the public schools at heart and will use great judg ment in making appointments. We want men of education, respectability and good moral training, and we are sure that no better re-election could be made, if such men as James H. Smith, Esq., Dr. Warring and other gentle men of such characters were appointed We anticipate a good administration under Mr. Edmunds. In our last weeks issue the type made us say that two-thirds of the jury under Mr. Duuglass, were colored men. It should have read one-third of the jury were colored men, and the bailiffs were equal, and neither Mr. Douglass, Mr. Marshal Henry made any change when they were appointed Marshal; just prior to the assassination of President Garfield, Captain Henry, it was report ed was about to make a wholesale dis charge of the negro, notwithstanding the appeals that were made to him not to attempt such, he was undecided till the assassination of Mr. Garfield, which changed his mind and position. Mar shal McMichel being moved by Henry's instinct, cairled out Henry's plans in the second year of the reign of the stalwarts. Mr. W. H. Calkins, of Indiana, chair man committee on elections in the Forty-Seventh Congress, and a Repub lican, led, fathered and madjj up the opposition that counted Mr. Samuel Lee, (colored) of South Carolina, out of his seat that he was elected to by an overwhelming majority of colored people and faithful and loyal unionists in South Carolina. But Mr. Calkins listened to what Mr. (Hamburg Mas sacre, Gen. M. C.) Senator Butler said, and under the lash of Mr. Butler Mr. Calkins led the movement that deprived Mr. Lee of the seat he was honestly elected to. Here is a case for the loyal black Republican colored men in Indi. ana that helped to send Mr. Calkins here. 1IOX. J. A. J. CRESSWELL NOT OPPOSED TO COL. DITTY Editor of the lice : Sir I desire space enough in the columns of your paper to deny the statement of the Sunday Capitol of March 11, 1883, in which it states that Hon. J. A. J. Cress well was in league with the enemies of Col. Ditty, to have him removed from the office of Collector of Internal Revenue for the Third District of Md. In an interview with three State Senators held at Willard's Hotel a few days previous to the pub lication above referred to. and which was also published in one of the dailv papers ; Mr. Creswell stated to the gentlenrn present, that he would rec ommend no one for Mr. Ditty's p lace because he believed Mr. Ditty's mental condition was better to-day than at any time since he had held the office, and certainly better than at the time of his appointment. There are no two men whom I know whose dispositions are?o identical as J. A. J. Cresswell andGen'I. Grant ; always true to a friend. Why ? Mr. Editor, the colored neonle of the District of Columbia owe this irentle- man a debt of gratitude which they will never be able to pay, and which they would pay with interest if they could, for his manly efforts, while a Senator, to give the elective f fanchise to the people of the District of Colum bia. He was always willing and ready to hear anything the colored men had to say ; was easy to approach ; could be seen at any time without ceremony, because he was their true friend in this matter. This occurred while he was a Senator and a member of the District Committee, sol am informed by Hon. John F. Cook. I have been with Mr. Cresswell while in heated political dis cussions, and with him in his social circle, and I have never heard him use ; any cauic!muu mat uiigub in tne re motest degree, be construed to be against the interest of the colored people of Maryland, as has been shown by several public meetings held in dif ferent parts of the State recently. Mr. Cresswell is not onlya friend to the colored people, but is a friend to Col. Ditty as well. My reason for referring to the nublication above alluded to. is that it places Mr. Cresswell in a false i position in reierenceto tne removal or Mr. Ditty. He is for Ditty first, last and all the time. W. H. Black. RE7.AKEBE 3EQX)K. "Ihentihey,'$bat glaffly received HiBWprdtte Baptized."' 19TK St.BiEiST'Ciruiicni Sun day morning, April, 1, 1883. 1 The text for the moraine services. ' Rev. Walter Brook, Pastor, were from the "2d chapter of Acts, 41 and 42 I verses: "Then they that gladly re j ceived His Word were Baptized, and the same day there were added xihto t.hpm nliniif: thrno Hinncnnfi rnin "And they continued steadfastly in the Apostles doctrine and fellowship .i L iIWMi,:-.. J -. .. , 0WrniP- iu4. iu uitaivm ul uiL'iiu, anu in prayers. The speaker .began by saying that there were certain prerequisites that a person must have before they can be come a member of the church of God. To wit: That a person in order to be come a member of an Evangelical church must first be converted or born again; 2d, they must be Baptized. 3d, they must be received into the church; 4th, they are then fit subjects for the "Table of the Lord," or, in other words, they can then participate in the Holy Communion; then having been ad mitted into the church they must con tinue steadfast abounding in the work of the Lord," thus growing in grace, doing good to their fellowmen, and at all times being able to give an answer for the reason of the hope which they have of eternal life; constantly work ing in the church for the best interest of the cause of God. The conclusion arrived at by the speaker, was that Baptism by emersion, as taught by the Bible, was one of the fundamental principles of regular Bap tists churches, while at the same time we have no complaint to make against those who do not believe as we do. I am free to say Mr. Editor, that I regard this subject as presented by Elder Brooks, on the occasion above re- coin, brilliant as if fresh from the coin ferred to. as being one of the most ' ing press, is considered and known as finished efforts made by him since he j "proof," while one which is free from has been in this city, for at this time ' the uses and abuses of circulated money we regard him to be one of the ablest is known as " uncirculated," and ranks young ministers of our race, for he, on ' second to " proof" in premium value, this occasion, demonstrated in a very The following prices are olTered by clear and comprehensive way the doc- any numismatist on receipt of the coins trine of the church, contending ably I in good ondition.

Wiat is life without Thy grace, I've found it misguided indeed. Help me then, Thy love embrace, And to Thy lioly law give heed. To live without Thee I've tried, I am powerless and undone; Help me to live near Thy Bide, As in the race oHife I run. The past a shadow, leaving no trace. Save of missteps not a few, Made straying from Thy beuutiful face. O, teach me then, what to do. The past all a sad, wide blank, When so little is done for Thee, Thee for tender mercy I thank; Give me now Thy pure liberty. Spare, oh! spare mo yet awhile, And help me for the right contend, Plead, oh, plead for Thy erring child, Precious Saviour and truest friend. May I each day prove Thine Not burying Thy talent Making Thy light to shine, But serving as Thy servant.

In conversing on the value of rare United States pieces a numismatist gave the following information: The rarest United Stites coin is the double eagle of 1819, of which there is only one in existence, belonging to the United States mint cabinet.

Onlv five known price oi J?iJ,U0'J. Only specimens of this half eagle are in ex istence. Another rare coin is the sil ver dollar of 1804. There are but ten genuine pieces, all of which are now held by collectors. Several restrikes have been made, but to obtain a fine one from the original die would cost at least 1,000. The half dollars of 1796 and 1797 if in fine condition briny $40; of the two the 1796 is the rarer and usually sells at a still higher rate. The quarter-dollars bf 1823 and 1827, if in good condition, sell readily at $30 each; but if in strictly fine preservation double that sum is cheer fully paid. Of the dimes there are none of extreme rarity ; still among the rare oins of that denomination that of 1804 is the rarest, and if in a good condition it can be bought at from $5 to $10 ,buta real fine specimen would bring a good deal more. Among the half dimes that of 1802 is the rarest and a very fine piece with that date sells readily at $100. There are other United States coins which are much sought after, and yet pass from hand to haid only for their face value. The condition of the piece is essential to an undi rdanding of the premium value of any coin of rarity. The age of com is not always a guar antee of nremium above face value.

For instance, we pay $7,000,OOJ for our anius ments. and it is supposed that our 10,000 whiskey and betr saloons gather in three times as mujli money at the least, while the item of education costs us $4,000,000. The average of wage paid in our manufacturies is $424 a year or $1,37 a day and if it were not above fhe "average paid elsewhere it would be impossible to psiy our higb rents. There is a wide field for mis sionary operations here, for out ot 270.496 children between the ages of five and eighteen only 115,826 attended S.un day-school la it year.
