Washington, I). C., Oct. 19, 1874.
Dear Era : I.et me say a woid through
your columns to some of my friends.
There are being held over the country?
north, south, east, and west?conventions
for the consideration of subjects intimately
connected with the interests of our people iu
the L'uited States ; and doubtless, this winter
will find such a gathering here at the nation's
Xow, dear brethren, \iho propose to meet
iu convention, when you do so, let me beg of
you to forbear from indulging at times iu the
expression of little personal auiinosities ; for
the sake of the great and good cause in view,
rir-e above self; personal bickerings do no
good; they only tend to divert attention
li oni the main subject and belittle those who
eugarre iu them.
1 mean no reflection upon the conventions
recently held out of the city, but remembering
with pain and mortification little personal
matters that have disgraced those held in
this city iu times past, 1 drop a liue for the !
consideration of my frieuds who may take j
part in such meetings in the future.
Faithfully, your friend,
11kart's Ease.
The Convention ami Civil ltiglil*
We clip the following front the BostoD
W'ttlly Juumal and are happy to notice so
much interest evinced by our Northern friends
for the welfare of the colored people :
in the well-considered and effective speech
which Mr. Dawes made in accepting the
chairmanship of the Republican Convention
at Worcester, there were ntany statements
of principle so clearly and tersely put that
tltflfy might well be taken for Republican mottoes,
and emblazoned on the standards o?
the party. Chief among them we rank his
enunciation of the duty of Republicans, and
especially of Massachusetts Republicans,
with regard to the Civil Rights bill. "Massachusetts,"
said .Mr. Dawes, " has a sacred
legacy iu the civil rights bill which she cannot
barter awa v, uor entrust to any unfriend
ly keeping." To this declaration of its presiding
oliicer the Convention a little later
gave an emphatic indorsement by passing a
esoluti >n condemning the outrages perpetrated
by the White Leaguers of the South, and
calling for the amplest protection of each individual
in his civil rights and privileges as
the lirst duty of national government. There
can be no mistaking the position of Massachusetts
Republicans on this most important
question, and the men who represent us in
either branch of Congress will be false to the
principles of the party if thev fail to give
ibeir inlluence unreservedly to the passage
*>f the Civil Rights bill. That bill is, as Mr.
Dawes said, peculiarly the legacy of Massachusetts
; it is the seal of the work done by
this Comiuou wealth during the long agitation
against slavery, and in the trying years of
the war ; it is the product of "the sagacity,
the patriotism, the humanity of the distiu- 5
guished Senator who bore so active and so
unsclti-b a part in that struggle ; and it is the j
lire without whose enactment there
that the work accomplished by the
in party may sometime be overi
i tie events now transpiring in the South,
in spite of the elibrls made to falsify or conceal
them, reveal a condition of affairs which
recalls the palmiest days of Ku-Kluxism.
The same anonymous threats ; the same assaults
by gangs of masked men ; the same
whippings, shootings, hangings and house
burnings are reported now, daily, as iu the
days before the National Government laid '
its strong bauds upon the Ku-Klux. The
White Leagues are nothing less than the old
Ku-Klux Kl;ins revived and rochristeued.
More moderate and covert in their operations
ut first, they have grown bolder as they
liave jiei'lected their organization and equipment
; aud iu Alabama, Louisiana, Tennessee,
and other of the Southern States they
make no secret of their purpose to drive
away white Republicans and intimidate the
blacks. We make no reference now to the
multitudious reports of outrages which come
up from every portion of the South, hut which f
take a form so vague that the Democratic 1
press finds it couvenient to wave them away
as myths. We refer to such deeds as the 8
massacre of white Republicans at Cousliatta; .
the assassination of the colored mail ageut 1
in Alabama; the atrocious murder of a young .
colored school teacher and the slaughter in |:
cold blood often or a dozeu helpless colored
* -prisoners in Tennessee. These are facts so r
patent aud so well known that the Northern
.Democratic press cannot deny them, or give 8
\iiem the appearance of "electioneering
trivfis." We refer, further, to the tone of 8
the Koutheru Democratic press, which calls *
for just such outrages as these, and when J
they are committed, applauds them aud 8
shields their perpetrators. a
Such a condition of affairs demonstrates,
plainly enough, that the Republican party c
has not yet fulfilled its mission. There is
work before it hardly less important lhau
that already done, and unless the neiv duties
are met manfully it is possible that the re-ults
already obtained may count for noth- ?
iug. Such considerations may well suffice to
silence all local ditfercnces and to unite all
the members of the jwrty in the great work
that lies before it. It is said that the party
lines are growing wavy; that party principles
are indistinct; and that there is a total
lack of issues on which to keep up the old
narty organisations. Here, however, we
hive au issue, plain, distinct and unuiistak- I
able; the Republican party of Massachu- I
setts, the Republican party of the United
States, demands civil rights for all citizens,
black and white, and promises protection
und safetv to all.

If'l/A a J%*ormat Department,
IS located at Harper's Ferry, West Virginia.
It was first opened in October, 1887, and has
ever since been crowded with young men and
women eager for an education. It originated in
a proposal of John Storer, of Maine, a Congregational
brother; to give $10,000 to found a
Normal College at the South, on condition that
others contributed a like sum to the same purpose,
and no distinction on account of race or
color. A few Christian men in Western New
York collected the required amount, (with a
little aid from friends in New England, and the
School became a fact.
Through the influence of the late Senator
Fessenden, of Maine, Senator (now Vice President)
Wilson, of Massachusetts, General Garfield,
of Ohio, and others, Congress donated the
four large brick dwelling houses, and the land
on which they stand, situated on the heights
above the ferry, to the Trustees of the College.
The buildings had been riddled by shot and
shell ; but, by the aid of contributions from the
Freedman's Bureau and from generous friends
ht the North, they were repaired, and another
large building erected. Into these buildings
about two hundred young people are crowded
every term, and trained for teaching and other
positions of usefulness.
Two pressing necessities now confront those
having this work in hand?a Girl's Boarding
Hall, and an Endowment. The former is an
immediate necessity ; it is impossible to meet
Ihe wants of the large number of girls who seek
to qualify themselves for teaching, without itThere
is no other School above a Primary in
grade in all West Virginia, Western Maryland,

youth, and the number who flock to this
School far exceeds the accommodations provided.
It is exceedingly hard to turn tdem
iway, and force them to remain in ignorance,
when they are so eager to learn.
Fifty Thoas and (Dollars are JJaedtd
to erect and furnish a suitable Girl's Hall. The
foundations hare been laid, in faith, and the
walls will go up as fast as the Lord's people
furnish the funds, and no faster. It is a work
for the Lord's poor, unsectarian in character,
t>f great moment, and very promising. We ap

which the mails over all Continents and the

With able and trusted Correspondents in the
leading capitals, and wherever great changes are
in progress, Thk Tribune aims, at whatever

But as to its own political principles, Tiie
Tribune is of course, hereafter as heretofore,
the champion of Equal Rights, irrespective of

by the Amendments for the permanent security
of those Rights, which have iieeu solemnly incorporated

The Weekly Tribune, now more than thirty
years old, has endeavored to keep up with the
progress of the age in improvement and in en
terprise. It devotes a large share of its col- j
umus to Agriculture as the most essential and j .
general of human pursuits. It employs the i
ablest and most successful cultivators to set i '
forth in brief, clear essays their practical views ,
of the Farmer's work. It reports public dis- '
cussions which elucidate that work; gathers
from every source agricultural news, the reports
of the latest experiments, the stories of
the latest successes and failures, and whatever
may tend at once to better Agriculture, and to
commend it as the first and most important of
progressive Arts, based on natural science.
The Weekly Tribune appeals also to Teachers,
Students, and persons of inquiring minds,
by the character of its Literary contents, which
include reviews of all the works proceeding
from the master mir,d3 of the Old or New
World, with liberal extracts from those of
especial interest. Imaginative Literature also
claims attention, but in a subordinate degree.
' Home Interests" are discussed weekly by a
lady specially qualified to instruct and interest ;
her own sex, and the younger portion of the i
other. No column is more encerlv soiiirlit or 1 !
perused with greater advantage and profit than
ners. The News of the Day, elucidated by
brief comments, is so condensed that no
reader can deem it diffuse, while given suf
ficiently in detail to satisfy the wants of the
average reader. Selections are regularly made
from the extensive Correspondents of Thk
Daii.t Tribune from every country, and its
editorials of more permanent value are here
reproduced. In short, Thk Weekly Tribune
commcuds itself to Millions by ministering to i
their intellectual wants more fully than they
are met by any other journal, while its regular ,
reports of the Cattle, Country Produce, and
other Markets, will of themselves save the
farmer who regularly notes them far more thau
his journal's price.
For the family circle of the educated farmer 1
or artisan, The Weekly Tribune has no su- <
perior, as is proved by the hundreds of thousands
who, having read it from childhood, still i
cherish and enjoy it in the prime and on the j
downhill of life. We respectfully urge those |
who know its worth to commend The Weekly .

The vicksburg plain dealer is
intended to meet an urgent necessity of the
Republican party in the City of Vicksburg and
Warren county?that of a bold, outspoken, unchangable
Republican paper. It will boldly defend
all that is right, and unhesitatingly denounce
all that is wrong. It will never resort to the
slang so generally used by the opposition press,
neither will it condemn any man unless it has indisputable
evidence. It will advocate the equal
civil and political rights before the law, but never
intrude upon the social prerogatives of any
class. In
It will be decidedly Republican; believing that
the prinoiples and objects of the Republican party
are in accordance with the Declaration of Independence
and the Constitution of the United
It will also take an active part in all questions
not of a decided political nature, but that will
redound to the benefit of the entire people ot
our city, couuty, State and nation. In matters of
It will send forth no uncertain sound, believing,
as it does, that the Common School should be
nursed by all the people of our State- The system
of Common Schools, now in its infancy in
our State, will do more to bring about the degree
of harmony and concord so devoutly wished for
by a majority of our citizens, than any other
medium we know of. Anil when neat and com- i

artistic skill, iu black anil white. Although
each succeeding number affords a fresh pleasure
to its friends, the real value and beauty
of THE ALDISE will be most appreciated
after it has been bound up at the close of the
year. While other publications may claim
superior cheapness, as compared with rivals
of a similar class, THE ALDISE is a unique
and original conception?alone and unapproached?absolutely
without competition
in price or character. The possessor of a
complete volume cannot duplicate the quantity
of tine paper and engravings in any other
shape"or number of volumes for ten times its
cost; and then, there are the chromos, besides
mvA&mzm, mi.
The illustrations of THE ALOISE have
won a world-wide reputation, and in the art
centres of Europe it is an ndmitted fact that
its wood cuts aro examples of the highest
perfection ever attained. The common
prejudice in favor of "steel plates," is rapidly
yielding to a more educated and discriminiting
taste which recognizes the advantages
sf superior artistic quality with greater facility
of production. The wood-cuts of THE
ALOISE possess all the delicacy and elaborite
finish of the most costly steel plate,
.vhile they afford a better rendering of the
irtist's original.
To fully realize the wonderful work which
THE At.OISE is doing for the cause of art
tulture iu America, it is ouly necessary to
consider the cost to the people of any other
lesent representations of the productions of
;reat painters.
Iu addition to designs by the members of
he National Academy, and other noted
American ariisis, THE ALDISE will reiroduce
examples of the best foreign
uasters, selected with a view to the highest
irtistic suecess and greatest general interest.
Thus the subscriber to TVf-E ALDISE will,
,t a trifling cost, enjoy In his own home the
deasures and refining influences of true art.

A3 an Advocate it will assert and maintain
every right pertaining to the American citizen,
independent of race, color, or accident of

rights wherever the Constitution extends or the

While the ?diuxra of the New National Era
are colored men, and the contributors will be
mainly colored, yet thecolurnns will be open for
the discussion of all questions of vital import
anee to the country by any of its citizens. Com
munications suitable for publication in these
columns, are solicited from our friends in all
parts of the country, especially in the Southern
Upon all questions involving the especial interests
of the colored American citizen, the
simple rule of equal justice for all men will govern
the policy of the New National Era. Itwildemaud
the recognition of no right for one
citiaen which it will not freely accord to every
other. It will oppose any attempt to confer
privileges upon a class, that are withheld from
the humblest citizen in the land. It will demand
for every citizen equality before the law, and full
protection of person and property in every Stale
ami Territory of the National Union.
The New National Era will take high ground
upon all public questions, and labor to inspire
an openness of purpose and encourage unity of
action, especially amongthe newly-enfranchised
people of the reconstructed States. Remembering
the past history of the Republican party,
and recognizing what it has done for the colored
people of the nation, the Nkw National Eka
will give its hearty support to that party without
reserve. This pledge of fidelity to the Republican
party is given under the conviction, and
with the assurance, that in the future, as in the
past, that party will be the steadfast and inflexible
support of those principles of justice and liberty
which have now become a part of the organic law
of the land.
Ily education the people of a free Government,
such as ours is intended to he, are better qualified
to discharge their duties to the State, and
to cue another. The na'ion will ever find its
surest safeguard in the intelligence of its voting
masses, and the journal which would promote
the highest good of government and people
must lend its energies and its power to the work
of educating that people. Especially is the
