The lir<ji*ter, with characteristic per\
iTHity, endeavors to distort to a i*?liUcal
use Hn error committed by one or the Assistant
Marshals (Col. IIuhuakd) in the
management of tho procession hero on
Decoration Day. It makes this statement
ni what occurred, characterizing it as an
outrage upon the rights of loyal citizens
under the Fifteenth Amendment:"
While the procession was forming on
Fourth ami Monroe streets, and after the
brass band, and members of the Grand
Army, and other societies and citizens on
foot had fallen into line, a large number ol
color oil citizens, well dressed, well manner*!
and perfumed with flowers, who
had been courteously awaiting their turn
for position, naturally fell into line in the
rear of all white people on foot, supposing
of course tliat to lie their proper
and rightful position in :i procession,
if not in front or centre. At Uib
colored innovation, however, the wMtfl
Republican 1>Umh1 began to boil, and Marshal
II i'mi a ho rode up and ordered them
peremptorily to full out of line and take
their position in the rear of tit *tring of
fiirrt'itiy*, fnifflir* and hnnmnen! This
was properly treated by the negroes as an
Insult, and they indignantly retired from
the procession and threw away their
flowers and evergreens!
After some comment on the enormity
of the indignity thus offered to the colored
jteoplc by "patriotic Republicans," the
Ilegi?trr concludes that "the moral ol the
alfair" will "simply teach the colored peo
{cession ot "their pretentleil Republican
' friends, except on an election day.
Now as to the forts. Statements differ
us to what .Marshal Huiuiaho'h order
was. He iLStocrld most positively tlml he
proposed to have the colored men fnll In
just behind the city authorities, speakers
and clergymen who were in a barouche
and two omnibuses, :uid not behind the
other vehicles; and some of the colorcd
men concur in this statement. But the
weight ot tlx? testimony is against the
Colonel and to the etlect that he directed
the colored men to fall in at the rear ot all
the vehicles But some.of them say that
twice when they started into the proccsI
sion at the |>oint where Col. Hibiiakd
claims he told thetn to enter it, they were
stopped by n couple of policemen whose
mum* they give; and one of theiu says he
beard the City Sergeant tell these two
deputies not to let "them niggers" go Into
j tin* procession till all the carriages had
j It is not truethut alter the colored men
I fell out of linn and broke ranks they "threw
| away their flowers and evergreens." One
of Iliuii took the trouble to call ou us
yesterday to give this an explicit denial,
lie says one lad did this, but no others.
The colored men had received no for
| mill invitation n> luKi' II piace in uiu pro]
cession, as tlic Turner's and Beethoven
: Society bail, bemuse they bud no kind of
uu organization; but tliey were included
in the gencrul invitation to citizens, and
bad been personally assured by some o!
the managers of the occasion that tbey
were entitled to u place iu the procession
as citizens and should have it if they
chose to take it
| Now who is to blame? If Col. Urn*
I itAlit) ordered the colored men to the rear
j of all the vehich-s.as sonteol them claim,
> be was wrong, uud they did right iu declining
tl> take the place assigned them.
They were willing, wo understand, to
enter behind the Mayor's barouche and
the two omnibusscs, and offered to, but
were repulsed by the |>olicc; but if it was
Col. Ik nuAiin's intention they should do
this, he was at least partially misunderstood
and erred in not remniniug on the
rr.vimri ami MiW>tnir nrrannftllv that thi> 11 r
rangcment was effected. It was the intention
and order of the Chief Marshal, Gen.
Kkli.ky, that these men should have a
place in the procession in the rear of the organizations.
It was CoI.IIuuuaiid's business
us Assistant Marshal to sec that they
entered the procession at the proper place;
and the blame of their failure to do this,
according to the lights before us, clearly
rests upon Col. lluniuM) and the police,
and them only, and they wdl have to
divide it according to their due proi>ortions.
Of course any interference whatever
by the police with the arrangement
of a public procession, or with a body of
men about entering one as well behaved
and courteous ns these colored men were,
, or with the orders of the marshals having
it in charge, was a gross otrence, and
a piece of sheer impertinence.
i Now pray by what kind ot logic will
the Wheeling Remitter make the Republican
party of this city responsible lor this
alleged slight of the colored men ? Nobody
certainly meant auy offense or dis
respect to them, unless it was the policemen.
Anil savo them, only one man can
even be charged with any such thiug,
and Dial is Marshal Huijbaiu); and we
do not suppose for a moment that any
such thought or intention over occurred
to him. lie disavows any such idea, and,
| we have no doubt, with jxirfcct sincerity,
j Hut the lltgi*tcr, which is capable of
I making partisan capital, if it a?uld, out of
j i its grand-mother's funeral, labors to make
the Republicans of the city responsible in
a party sense for this blunder in making
t up the procession to visit the cemetery;
and to construe it into evidence that Re*
publicans an- not willing to accord the
colored |>eoplc the full dignity ol citizenJ
ship. This kind of stuff Irom that source
doe* not catch any gulls about here. The
colored men themselves understand the
game perfectly. Some of them, discussing
the matter yesterday, remarked that tho
Democrats were altogether too sweet on
tkem all at once and werejust now taking a
good deal too much Interest in their rights
under the 15th Amendment. They understand
precisely the nature of the blunder,
who is to blame for it, and know that
. it is regretted by every body exccpt a
I ew Democrats of the baser sort.'Who sup
|hhl* they ran make a little political capitul
out or it.
Hut the RfjUtrr, in its eagerness to excite
a feeling when; none is due, puts itself
in a very awkward position. It furgeta
that the occasion ou which this thing occurred
was wholly non-partisan. It was oue In
which all patriotic citizen# united without
reference to party. Democratic citizens
and municipal authorities joined with
Republican citizens, and the Mayor and
one of the foremost Democratic members
of the liar were among the sjicakers. Now
if the |tatriolic ceremonial of honoring the
Union dead was confined to the Republican
party, that party can be held re,sj>onjiible
for errors committed in the ceremonies;
ami the Rf'jMer in making our
jmrty the hcaj>egout for the mistakes of
the day, confesses that decorating the
graves of I'nion soldiers is something
the Democratic jwrly has no
lot tmr imrt in. it beinc the jjccu
liar iifliiir o| the Republicans. If this ]
is true, and the ReguUr admits it, then ]
the Republican!) might bo made respon- 1
sible for Monday's blunder. But if Demo- j
crats joined Republicans, as tliey appeared
to do, in pitying reapcct to the memory .
of the dead I'nion soldiers, and the occa- ;
sion was, as we all sup|M>sed, wholly free
from party atmosphere, then wo seek in
vain for anything to excuse the indecency
of the lltgiatrr in lugging into its columns
the next morning tills grovelling attempt
to excite a feeling among the colored pco- |
pie against their friends. It was done in I
the hope that some ol them might this
fall be induced to vote for the candidates
of the party that has never yet acknowledged
that the negro is a man or has any <
rights which a white Democrat is bound
to resiteet. i
Let it Alone.
And uow comes a report from Washington
that soinelHKlv is bidding against |
us for the bay of Samunn, and will give
$27,000,000 if we don't take it at once at
the price agreed on with Mr. Baez, (a
million ami a half and the assumption of
unknown, or at least undisclosed, debts;)
and the PitKsruENT has sent in another
sccrfl IllCBUIgi: suuill 1U Mini, viu mi.
vico to President Giiant and the Senate
is: let this party have Sun Domingo by ,
ull menm. We don't want it at half the
money, or at any price at all. We ought
not to accept one inch of soil South of
Florida without being paid a large price
(or doing it With this debt of two thousand
millions hanging over us, with such
necessities weighting the treasury, as Mr.
Boutwell and Mr. Senator Siierman <
assure us, that even the inquisitorial income
tax cannot be remitted, the voting
away of millions to purchase old lumber
of islands and alien, half-barbarous j?opulations
in the torrid zone.^fliich the country
has no need for, and which would
actually be a constant source of trouble
and expense, would 1h? little less than an
outrage on the country; and if the scheme
is consummated, we earnestly trust the
lightnings of public indignation may

high or how low, who to a party to it.
Thk Register says the Republicans of
Fayette county have expressed a preference
for Col. Titos. b. Swan " as the Republican
candidate for Congross in the
first district." That's news. We should
like to know wlisit the Fayette county
Republicans have to do with Congcesslonal
matters in this district.
Our neighbor adds: "If we mistake
not, we knew the said Swann as a Colonel
in the Confederate army in 18G1C2.
J Very likely. J Witcher had better
keep au eye to his boots."
Now we don't see just why a candidate in
this district should make a raid on
Witcher's boob unless purely from force
of habit; but if it is a peculiarity of exConfederates
to freeze to other people's
boots (and our soldiers used to say that it
was the ruling passion with the Johnnies)
then maybe |>cople in the neighborhood
of Market street had better keep au eye to
their boots.
Festival?Notwithstanding the threatening
A*peel of the heavens last evoning,
u large crowd assembled, in the lecture
room of Uie North street M. E. Church
to participate in a festival gotten up by
the smaller members of the Sunday
School connected with that church. The
display o( fancy articles was very creditable.
The great interest, however, concentrated
in the voting for a toilet set,
dress pattern, and large wax doll. The
friends of Miss Amanda Robinson and
MiasMnry Phipps rallied in their sUeogth
in contesting for the flrst named article;
those of Mis* Strait and Miss Miller for
the second; while those of two little girls,
children of Mrs. Texa Miller and Mrs.
Hastings, were actively engaged in soliciting
votes lor their favorite contestant.
The festival and voting will be continued,

Mu. Editou?Through the column* of
your paper, your renders no doubt will be
glad to hear of the interest manifested
along the Ohio river from Wheeling to
Parkersburg, in doing something in honor
of "our brave dead." The writer was requested
to collect some flowers for the
decoration ceremonies to take place at
Wheeling. To effect this on short notice
it was thought best to send out word to
the friends. Patriotism is instinctive.

At Baresville, Ohio, as we Jieared the
landing, about 9 o'clock at night, a most
beautiful scene was presented. A host of
pretty girls and ugly boys, each carrying
a nic? bouquet?the wharf covered with
citizens, all waiting to do honor to the
noble dead. When the stage was thrown
out they all marched up into the boat and
arouud the cabin, and deposited their
flowers with cheerful welcome; literally
covering the tables.
At Sunfish a large box of bouquets,
wreathes, anp beautiful designs were sent
in. This box of flowers was said to have
been the donation of 119 little girls and
young ladies. The following are some of
the mottoes attached to the cards:
"Ohio responds?and sends her flowers
to decorate the graves of West Virginia
soldiers;" "All honor to our brave dead;"
"To our sons, brothers, and comrades that
fell for the Suirs aud Stripes;" "God bless
thee and him upon whom these flowers
uro strewn;" "A tribute to our fallen liorocs?we
cherish their memory here."
Many other notes of interest might be
spoken of, but for fear that yon cannot
give space, I will closc for the presentonly
adding?that judging from the involuntary
enthusiasm over "Decoration
day," the sacrificing soldier who went
forth to bleed and die for liitt country,
will live in llie memory of succeeding

The design of the Institution Is to fUrniah a
thorough and systematic coarse of instruction
for voting ladlca ti|>on the plan of University Infraction,
each detriment of lcarnlug being
complete within itnelf, thus enabling a young
lady to select her own course of study without
being restricted to any flxctl routine of classes,
requiring a rertaln number of years to finish;
but, in opposition to this, young ladles who havu
advanced further in some studies than others,
cuii have the benefit of their former acquirements
and obtain a CertlMcute of Jtytteinicy In ouo or
rnorv schools |>erhapK, in tliu course of ouo year,
after which time, they mar briuis up, with greater
rapidity and success. other studies.
Young ladles who have acquired considerable
proticieiicy upon tlio piano, and who may wish U>
prosecute the study still further, can b? furnished
with advantages tor mastering this Instrument?
