(Success to these journals. Senator Vest, of Missourri, Btated last Wednesday that he wanted to correct a statement that had been published to the ef fect, that the Senate had passed unanimously, the bill to retire General Grant. He wanted to say that he (Vest) was opposed to the bill. The Senator has not forgotten that General Grant pul iled the self same Vest down, dur the late unpleasentness. Go to Chase and Co., the most enter prising firm in the city. THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. It has been the desire aud dis position on the part of same colored men to mislead the Negro from his path of duty. This mis representation arises from men who have been kept in office by the republican party, and who have failed to get recognition from our nartv managers. The Colored people must learn and act like other men within the party, when they are not success ful. It is a fact undeniable that the republican part as a whole is not responsible for the wrong doings ot a few men. Ought the republican party be held respon sible for Mr. Hayes, treachery to the southern Negro ? There were as many true republicans in this country who were as much op posed to Mr. Hayes policy, as the southern Negro, who were left naked to the mercy of the rebels in the south. Is the republican party responsible for the defeat of the force bill by James G. B'aine, which would have given the Ne gro ample protection in the South? We desire to say to our colored friends that the mission of the re publican party is not yett fulfilled. That mission will not be fulfilled until the southern Negro is as free as every white citizen in the New England States. The com- mg campaign promises to u uu interesting one. The great ques tion at issue is protective tariff on one side and free trade on the other. The principles of the re publican parly are protection and universal liberty to every Ameri can citizens, a perpetration of our free school system, a free vote and an honest count. The democra tic party still adheres to the Jack sonian principles, perpetration of oppression and a denial of Jibe con stitutional rights of the Negro. "Which platform shall we accept? Over two hundred aud lift' years of oppression and slavery, ought to be enough for the Negro. We are now permitted to enjoy to an extent, liberty and protection un der a republican form of govern ment, upheld by the republican party, and when we become insane and throw our support to the dem ocratic party, then we throw away our civil and political liberty. The Bee Office mutiication. has Telephone - com- WHAT HAVE THE NE GROESDONE? The New Orleans Exposition, will most undoubtedly be one of the very best that has ever been held in this country. Major Burke, of the New Orleans Times Democrat, iw his address to the Colored - people at the Asbury Church last Monday night, made a most liberal offer to aid the col ored people of this country, to show what they have accom plished since their emancipation. We advise the colored people to embrace the opportunities that are offered them in the way of science and let politics alone. The south ern white people are about to re pent for the wrongs they have in flicted upon the Negroes and are now willing: to do any thing to promote industry among them. Major Burke's offer to the colored race is fifty thousand dollars to aid them to show what they have done. Rev. A. M. Green in forms us that he would not ex change his position in the South to day for any position in the North. Let us therefore do all we can to show to the world that the colored raee has accomplished something since their freedom. The question now is, will the South surpass the North in their exhi bits at this great exposition. We endorse what Louise says in her letter this week. She cer tainly is right when she makes a protest agaiust young men escort ing loose females where respecta ble people go. We endorse the reappointment of Hon. J. B. Edmonds, as Dis trict Commissioner. President Arthur made a fine selection in the appointment of this gentle man. Judge Edmonds is a good enough Republican for ihe people of Washington. He is a gentlman and an honest man, The National Republican to the contrary notwithstanding, OUR PUBLIC SCUOOL SYSTEM. We believe that a chanpe in our public schools would materally im prove its present system. To say that our colored schools are con ducted upon the same principles as the white schools would be false. It is the same old idea3 that have been fostered from the time our schools have been under the man agement of the present regime. Wrhat we desire in our schools are new ideas. There are many changes that can be made which would be to the beniiit ef the col ored schools. The reforms that were looked for and which are greatly needed, have bean disre garded. Our High school is not placed upon the same educational basis as the white High school. There was a time when the color ed peopletcould have had a Nor mal school which would have been an honor to our public school system, but Mr. John H. Brooks, through his ignorance de feated the whole measure. A new trustee in the place of Mr. Brooks and the appointment of a man who has a knowledge of our school system is greally desired on the part of the colored people. We ask for the removal of Mr. Cook the present superintendent, aud put in his place a man with progressive ideas. Mr. Cook is a gentleman every body will admit but his ideas ot our public school system will uot do in this age. The colored schools have made no progress within the last two years, and unless Mr. Brook? and Sup erintendent Cook are removed, the schools will fall below par. The people have looked for re forms which should have been made Ions; ao-o. JPhat has been the result of the management of the Seventh school division under Mr. Brooks? The appoiutment of imported teachers in preference to home talent. PROTECTING THE INTER ESTS OF LABOR. The speech of Hon. William D. Kelly, of Pennsylvania, on the protection of labor delivered April 15th in the House of Rep resentatives is out in pamphlet form. This speech should be in the hands of every citizen of the j world. Mr. Kelly certainly taught the democrats a good lesson when he delivered such wholesome ad vice to them. He graphically pic tured the condition of forcing sub jects and cheap labor. Mr. Kelly m reply to the democrats paid: Are our democratic assaciates in their mad pursuit ot cheap goods, willing to add pernicious anaemia to the list of diseases with which the people are 'already familiar? The cry of reform by the democrat ic party is similar to the sham re form of several years ago. THE MISSISSIPPI DELEGA TION TO CHICAGO. Ex-Senator Bruce, now register of the Treasury, sroes at the head of the Mississippi delegation to the republican convention. The del egation is said to be for Arthur, with Logan as second choice. Mr. Bruce was called on last night by a number of colored politicians, and informed that it was contem plated to present his name as the representative of the race to the convention for the nomination for Vice President. Mr. Bruce is too modest a man to make any efforts in his own behalf, but his friends are quite certaiu that he will not refuse the nomination if his white colleagues of the convention tend er it to him with the proper grace. While he was a member of the Senate he was several times called to the chair, and he would there fore not be entirely new to the po sition. Battimore Sun. Senator Bruce served as vice president of the Senate without prejudice, why not elect him vice President of the United States? Logan as president and Bruce as vice president will conciliate the country, and especially the Negro. Ed, The District Messenger and Telephone at the Bee office, can be used at all hours of the day and night. OUR NEW OFFICE. The enterprising business mana ger of the Bee, Col. Murrell, has been busily engaged for the last week, refitting up the Bee office with every modem convenience, s.0 that it will equal any in the country. We claim now that the Bee office is the best office of the colored pres3 in the country. We have had the District, Messenger and Fire alarm put in which will be an accommodation to the peo ple in this vicinity. Auy time our neighbors desire to have a mess enger, cab, carriage, herdic police man, &c, called, the Bee office 13 the place to come. The manager has had put in a public telephone, aud next week the telegraph will be put iu. The Bee will be the great Natioral organ of the color ed race. Mr. J. G. Hilton, repre senting the Mutual District JMes senger Co., is the gentleman to whom we are indebted to for our new enterprize. ANOTHER MISSISSIPPIAN IN TOWN. Mr. Editor: In the person of Mr. W. C. Cox, of Vicksburg, who was born at Richmond in 1830, and removed to Mississippi with his parents while quite a child, where he has since remained; wa3 musteied into the military service of his country during the late civil war, and served two years and two months in Company D, U. S. Colored In fau try; first as a pri vate, afterwards made Drum Ma jor. Was wounded three times in the battle of Mobile, at Fort Blakely, and also had a brother killed in the same battie. He was a brave and gallant soldier, wits honorably discharged from the sei vice in 1865, where he returned to his old home at Vicksburg, and to the loving arms of his aged mother, who still lives at the clever age of seventy-five sum mers. Mr. Cox has been a suc cessful and influential local poli tician, in his section ever since re construction, having been a dele gate to every Republican Con vention, State aud county, since the war. He haa held also sev eral places of trust and honor, at the Capital and in his town and county. When the troubles of 1875, came on, he remained at home, in the midst of the most trying ordeals, such as made the souls of the most of his brethern fail them. It can be said to his credit that he remained at his post with matchless courage, as the leader of his much persecuted people, TFas District elector for Hayes in 1876, and was again appointed by the Republican State Central Com mittee, to canvass his district for Garfield, in 1880, which he did with great acceptability. He has always heard the call of his party though ofteu endangering both his life and his property. He has al ways been an active, willing, and effective worker for the party, in the interest of his less fortunate fellows. He is known iu his sec tion, as the fighting Negro, among the whites, any Negro who has the courage of his convictions, iu the South, is regarded by the southern people as bad men. Mr. Cox is now employed in the office of the Comptroller of Currency, Treasury Department. We extend to Mr. Cox the hand of friendship, and welcome him to our beautiful Capital city. May he succeed at his new post of duty as he has in the far off South as a leader of the lately enslaved. His Friend. Perhaps Mr. Cox can give Jef fords a little help, who was de feated recently as a delegate to Chicago from that State. Jeffords is entitled to the support of every colored man. The.last issue of the Louisiana Standard announces the election of our clever young friend James D. Kennedy to the presiden cy of the""AmerIeus Club. The club is in its Thirteenth Year and represennts the elite of the Crescent City. The hosts of friends of Jimmy Kennedy here extend their congratulations. We are gratified to announce that Mr. Benj. Moten one of our most promising young men of Washington has just passed a creditable examinatfon before the civil service board of ex-examiners. The Bee congratulates you, Benny. THE COLORED VOTE. We made the statement lately that no public man s'aud3 to-day more firmly in the regard of the colored people than General Lo gan, aud we believe that no can dhfcite for the Presidency would or could poll such a solid mass of the colored vo'e both South and Nor Ji as Logan. Logau has consistently and con stantly shown himself to be the friend of the colored race, and has been prominent in all meas ures of National legislation for their advancement and education, believing that the colored man will progress more rapidly in the scale of manhood and citizenship under p.'oper influence and pro tection than was dreamed of by most men a few years ago. That General Logan would briug out the colored vote everywhere in greater numbers than any other man (except, perhaps, Abraham Lincoln, were he living), we are ffrmlv convinced. Talk with the colored meu of the North and you find them the name of Logan with that warm affection characteristic of their race. Talk with the Ne groes of the South and you will find they are looking to Logan as a stalwart friend, protector, and chieftain of the people. The col ored people do not forget that for years the voice and influence of Logan has been consistently and persistently given to uplift and ad vance their interests as citizens of this nation. They point to his first great plea for the black man, when on a July day in 1865, in the Court House ut Louisville, Ky., he made one of his impassion ed and earnest speeches in behalf of advancing and maintaining the rights of the freedmen. He pre sented all the strong moral aud legal arguments in favor of eman cipation, and called upon the peo ple of Kentucky to consent to the constitutional amendment pro hibiting slavery and to strike out the race distinctions of citizenship in their state constitution at once and forever. On the question of civil rights he has been from the very first radical and outspoken iu favor of protecting the colored peeple iu their political privileges. The Pe oria Daily Tranecript. - SENATOR BRUCE WELCOM ED HOME. By The Citizens and The Colored Militia. About eight o'clock on last Mon day night about three hundred cit izens assembled at the Armory of Co. B Capital City Guard, and re paired to the residence of Register B. K. Bruce, who has recently returned from the Hot Springs and the South much improved in health. A fine string band head ed the precession, which arrived at the residence of Mr. Bruce about half past eight o'clock. Col. M. M. Hollaud, the spokesman, in troduced the Senator to the people who responded in a neat little ad dress. Capt. Wm. Giay, of Co. B is entitled to a great deal of credit for the turn out of his company to welcome to our fold once more our distinguished citizen, B. K. B;uce. Sweet music was discoursed by the fine band which played "Hail to the chief." Of course, no colored man will be sent as a delegate to the Nat ional Convention ; what has he to do with this government? Did we not free him, after he had worked two huudred and forty years for us, enriching us anu ed ucating our children, he should be grateful to us for this favor. True we did uot take up arms because we loved the Negro, if we had al lowed the slave holder's power o increase, it might have engulfed the entire nation. But the Ne gro was freed, .and is in duty bound to stand by the Republican party right or wrorg. This is what the white men say; we mean that low, despicable element that is in the majority. When the Democratic party learn3 some sense, the Negro will begin to cross the line ; then the Republi cans will begin to croak. The Denver Sun. For the best Liquors go to H. S.

I really didn't know that you had been sick. I attended the play, and the criticism iu last weeks Bee is endorsed by persons who have a knowledge of Shakespeare. There were several there who no doubt presumed that the several pieces were performed to perfection. It is a fact that Miss D. did not play Lady Anne' and so far as Gloster is concerned, he was burlesqued. Mr. Beatty foamed too much at the month, in the play of Macbeth. With proper training he will make a good actor. I remember some several years ago, when the Ira Aldridge Dramatic club made its appearance in Pi zarro, at Ford's Opera House, the people were too religons to go, and even the ministers, e xcept Rev, J. W. B. condemn ed the ilay because it was given in the theatre. I find improvement in our circle the married men have been taught to keep their places, but the single men need reforming, morallv. Ko lady should allow men to walk in the street with her pnfFing a cigar, it looks vulgar, and no lady will allow it. I have been wondering if our social circle can possibly give a se lect sociable? I have been invited to sevi eral places this month, and have been in formed that the affair will be select. I don't think it can be possible for any se lect affair to be given. 1 find the dem mondes more at these places, more in number than in years gone by. It h sur prising to me with how much reverence they are treated by our young men. Go where you may, and you will find them in company with our young men, and look ed after more than our young ladies with in our home circle. How different our young men are now, I can remember the time wheu it would be ostracism to any young man, if it were known, to be in the company of lewd women. It is becoming so now thatunless these men can act and talk as they please to the young ladies, it is no go. It is the duty of every young lady to exact from every young man, pro found respect. What a difference there would be in our social circle. I noticed at the concert given by the Amateur Glee club several young men in company with doubtfdl characters, and I noticed the same thing at Ford's Opera House. There is a certain clerk (of color) in the Post Office, who would pass for white, if he could, he accompanied a poor white woman to the play at Ford's, and no doubt thought that the age of Negro equal ity had arrived. I sat and looked at him and ray conclusions were, that Mr. Y At. had decided to change his company. At tlu Amateurs, I saw several of our young men with doubtful characters, they don't know for a moment with what disrespect they are treating respectable people. I find that this class of young men, give these low women more credit than they do our girls, who are ornaments to our social cir cle, who are more mannerly and intellect ual. Let our young ladies adopt another course and I will assure them all that there will be a most wonderful change. Our young ladies make mistakes when they se lect a male associate. They generally go after a man with a high-sounding name, and one who has no principle, in preference to gentlemen who work hard for an honest living. It would be a great deal better for them to select an honest hard work iug man who will honor and respect them, instead of looking after one-half of these Washington fops and some of these men from other states, who may have probably just been released from prison. If a man s a clerk, or a messenger in some depart ment, our females make right for him. It is a mistake. I find that there is more honesty among the hard working classes than there is in one-half of these Negro clerks and messengers, who infest our ci ty. I appeal to our young ladies to be careful and demaud respect from every body. Let this be a model city, and let our society be looked upon as pure as bap tism. I know that there are married men in onr community, who take a spec ial interest in our society, and the females I can name men who are not always seeking to insult every young lady they meet or with whom they are acquainted Yours lovingly, Louise.
