With the ex ception of possibly three plaees in the South, where the "unknown" Union dead and Federal soldiers are buried, there is no notice taken of those graves on recurring memorial days save by the loyal and union loving colored people. We are acquainted with this matter fully. It speaks out well for our people. Notwithstanding, how they as a race and class have been neg lected, forgotten, yes, even frowned upon by the powers that be. Still their innate love for the memory of the union soldier is so firm and devoted that even at a sacrifice our people will see to it on decoration day that violets, pansies, lillies and the choice flowers of the south land are spread over the graves of the dead who died for the Union. From the Petomac to the Rio Grande on decoration our loyal union-loving colored people through the South will visit on decoration day the cemeteries of the union dead and garland each grave with the flowers of Spring. If they did not do this the "unknown" and nearly all tho union dead that lie in the cold valley and shadow of the South land, would be untouched, un noticed. The same respect and devotion with affection nigh unto .the tie, yea, even so of blood that the freedman of the South exhibited to starving union escaped prisoners during the war wherein oftimes the slave has offered his life to save his union soldier guest is as ripe to-day as then. Go witness on decoration day how they will plant on each grave down there in tho south their little token of affection and Rind memory of the gal lant dead. THE GAY HEART SOCIALS. The Gay Heart Social Club gave a parlor sociable, at the residence of Mr. John W. Freeman, Tuesday evening. The affair was quite novel. The ladies' and gentlemen were elegantly attired. Among he many clubs present, were Arthur Social Club, C. Johnson, Presi dent; Cosmetic, J. Banks, President, and the Invincibles, A. Jones, Presi dent. Each club wore badges and the members were dressed in full black. Mr. Wm. Freeman deserves credit for the attention shown the guests of the evening. The officers of the Gay Heart Social Club are W. Freeman, President ; A. Dickson, Yice President; E. Hood, Secretary ; W. Rpy, Assist ant Secretary ; E. Bailey, Treasurer, and F. Maddison, Sergeant at arms. There were about one hundred persons present. BE DFORD, QUEENAN AND PINN WERE THEY INNOCENT OF niRTH S MURDER ? SOME INTFRESTING REM INISCENCES OF THE TRIAL. A reporter of 2VieCVMteTendeaYored last evening to trace the rumors that d letter had been received in this city announcing that Ben Johnson had con fessed to being the. murderer of young Mirth, foF which feabd Bedford ,and Bd ward Queenan, were hanged aboiit three years ago' and Sand Pijm cohi mitted id tho penitentiary, Where he recently died. The theory of the defense in the memorable trial was that Johnson was the murderer, and one of the most sen sational scenes ever enacted in a court of justice Was wheh Johnson was placed in Among a number of yoling colored men; dnd an old deaf and dumb negress was told td pick out the man whd she silld Had c'ohie td net on the night of the murder and told her in the language of the fingers that he had just killed Hirth. The old woman who had been testi fying through Dr. Gallaudet paced up and down the court-room, scanning eagerly the faces of the men, until her eyes fell ori itohrison; iind theft With an intense excitement in which she seemed bursting in her mute effort to speak, pointed out JOHNSON AS THE CONFESSED MUR DERER, and made an impression that will never be forgotten b.V those Who witnessed it, and left ail unchangilbio conVictiori in many minds that Johnson was the guilty man. The story of the trial and the execu tion is fresh in everybody's memory. Johnson wiUj compelled to leave the city, so strong was the feeling against him among the colored people, and was last heard of in Boston ; his mother still continuing to live in the vicinity of, the Children's Hospital. When the reporter reached Samson street, the old home of Sandy Pinn and Babe Bedford the narrow thorough fare wds alive with excitenieiit and gossip about the alleged confession as it appeared in The Crttie, and in every doorway little groups of people were discussing the publication: The feel ing against Johnson Was almost unani mous, and many of the people were empathic in their statements that the innocent men were punished. MRS. FINN, MOTHER OF SANDY FINN, was found in her little house and imme diately guessed the reporter's errand. She wds very feeble, and could scarcely speak; having been; as slid srtid, an in valid over since her son's conviction, and having been dangerously ill since his death. She said that she had always believed Johnson tc be the murderer, and that it some time would be known that her boy was innocent, but that she knew nothing of any con fession by Johnson, and did not linow where he was. She would not be sur prised if Johnson had confessed, but did not believe that Mrs. Bedford or Mrs. Queenan had been notified of the fa-1. A young colored woman who was seen said that Mrs. Bedford was now in Ijrightwood and had received rto in telligence of a. cohfessiph by Johnson. Mr. Hay ward, one of the counsel for the defense in the llirth trial,said that while he had no proof of Johnson's confession, he would not be surprised at it. He had the evidence to prove that the principal witnesses at the trial had purjured themselves, and but for the statute of limitations they would be prosecuted. As to the murder, he had always known that THE MURDERER HAD ESCAPED JUSTICE and still believed that in the course of time ho would be tried and convicted. The only difficulty was that to secure a conviction certain parties would have to be induced to admit thatthev testified falsely at the trial. Mr. William Calvin Chase, who has published some statements of the re ported confusion in tho Bee, said he obtained his information from Jona than Hamelton, who told him he had seen the letter which had been sent to Mrs. Bedford, the mother of one of the men who was hanged. Mr. Chase said that Mrs. Bedford had gone away the day after the receipt of the letter and had not yet returned. Mr. Hamilton was seen, who said, that he did not see the letter himself but was told by Mr. Savoy that Mrs Queenan, mother of the other executed man, had told him (Savoy) that she had received a letter from soma Wes tern judge in regad to Johnson's con fession, and that she had gone away, but he did not know where. The rumors are so numerous and so generally believed that there must be some foundation for them, and yet no reliable source can be found. The police authorities have no in formation on the matter and do not be lieve that Johnson has made any con fession. They say that Queenan, Bed ford and Pinn were convicted upon indisputable evidence, and that all the material parts of Johnson's testimony were fully corroberated; that nothing has occurred since to change the facts in the case, and that they think the rumor got into circulation in connnc tion with some other case-Critic Tues day April 3 There is something wrong in Den mark. Mr. Savoy from whom Dr. John W. Hamelton got his informa tion says that he saw the letter that was received by the party alleged in the article of the Bee of last week. SUNDAY SCHOOL UNION. There was an interesting Sunday School Union at the Fifteenth street Presbyterian church Sunday afternoon, It was stated that it was both advisa ble and necessary that the schools should combine so that a suitable rep resentation could be had at the inter national convention of Sabbath schools next year. The idea of forming the union of schools is regarded as a means for extending the principles of Chris tianity. Messrs. Smith, Merriweather, Vance and Harris and Miss Baldwin were appointed a committee to arrange a programme for the next meeting. Mr. McCormick, the superintendent, and teachers are all very much inter ested in the work. After singing "Nearer my God to Thee" the meeting adjourned subject to the call of the proper officer.

While Mr. George Richardson's prin ciples are right on the mixed school question, his theory is wrong we hold that the agitation of the mixed school question in the south would be dangerous to the progress of the southern colored people at this time. We maintain our same position that we assumed before the National Press Convention. In those states where mixed schools Will benefit the negro there let us have them, but in the District of Columbia, where the people are denied the right of suffrage, and in the South where Bourbonism is so prevalent and prejudiced to the educa tional advancement of the negro the agitation of this question in these sec tions will tend more to the destruction of our institutions. The advocates of mixed schools look at one side of the question only; they look at the existing evils through a smoked glass. Mr. Rich ardsons' theory of mixed schools is hypothetical with no substantial assur ance of the benefits. The benefits so far as he argues are presumptive. We who are opposed to the agitation of this question believe in the prin ciple as much so as the advocates of it, but we hold that it is practically inex pedient. This is not a question on which to make spread-eagle speeches. There are four cardinal principles upon which this question is based, which are the same that we suggested tQ the National Press Convention last Sum mer and we hold and still aver that these are the principle points to consider. 1st. Because it it a secondary princi ple to the rights of man. 2nd. Because it is not a question of mixing the schools in the South, but shall the negroes be educated, which is one of the cardinal principles of South ern bourbonism, and such agitation would tend to the disadvantage of the colored people in the South. 3rd. The sentiment of the Liberal's to unite the masses against bourbon ism must be sufficiently developed, which will be the first principle of the rights of man, before the consideration of the secondary principle can be suc cessfully carried into effect. 4th. As an example, the State of Virginia has not sufficiently developed its Liberal sentiment and not a leader would- dare to make the mixed school question an is sue in the state ak this time. Why? because while the liberal movers are in favor of according equal political rights to the negro, but the right of mixing colored children with white children is a principal the liberals held sacred and and nothing but a rad ical change in the body politic will obliterate the prejudice of the Liberals against mixed schools. This whole school question is based upon the above principles. Mr. Waring took a philosophical view of this question in his speech on last Tuesday eveuing. He, coming from a place where there is no prejudice against mixed schools, admits from experience that seperate schools are necessary. In the District of Columbia we are satisfied with our public school system and any attempt to invade and disturb its tranquility shall receive the condemnation of the masses. A Giant Clam. &01mei Berkley, who has lately re turned from the Andaman islands, has brought with him an extraordinary 'specimen of the clam tribe which fie (succeeded in capturing in that lo cality.
