Tne Supreme Court.
WASHINGTON, April 12.-In the Supreme Court,
on motion to file the Mississippi Bul, the Chief
Justice said that a motion to file a Bill waa usually
granted as a matter of course, but if, - as was sug?
gested, the Bill nhntairifl matter " scandalous or un?
fit to comaJiefore "the Court, the Court examines
it, or refers it to a master: In this coso the At
tornoy-General objects to tho Bul as containing,
matter unfit to bring before; the 'Court. That is
the only point thntcan now be considered. ' Upon
that point the Court. will first hear : the Attorney
General.
Mr. O'CONNOR announced hirnseif and associates
in attendance, should it be decided to argue both 1
Bills. The Attorney-General ? dd the Georgia Bill ;
lacked the point in which he proposed to oppose!
the filing of tho Mississippi Bill The Mississippi \
Bill was rh a legal sense scandalous, os it proposed
to make the President a defendant before the
Court. .3=- . .
Mr. SHARKEY said he had amended the Bill so as
to proceed against the President as a citizen of
Tennessee.
Attorney-General STANSBURY read portions' of
the B?i, claiming that it was manifestly against
the President as President. He alluded to a pro?
cess somewhat similar used against Mr. JEFFER?
SON. In the BTRT> trial, Mr. ?JEFFERSON did not
obey, or even notice the process. As an officer, he
should advise the President to disregard the sub?
poena, and traced the result should the Court re?
sist and the President romain firm. Tho Court, to
maintain its dignity, would have to imprison the
President for contempt. He maintained that,
equally with the Kings of England, the President
?as exempt from proceedings of this kind. He
could only be brought before the Bar of the Senate
after impeachment.
The Courts could punish him for acts committed
while President, but he was beyond their jurisdic?
tion while occupying that chair. He also main?
tained that the action was against the. United
States Government as much so as if that: Govern?
ment were named. . He announced that he appear?
ed at the request of the President, who, when the
Bills were passed over his veto, ibero was but one
duty, in his estimation, resting upon bim-that
was, faithfully to carry out and execute those laws.
? R. J. WALKER followed, and the Court took the
matter under advisement. .

Our New York Letter.
[FROH OOR REGULAR COBRESFONDaaTT.]
NEW YORK, April 10_Tn my letter of tho 3d
inst. I made an allusion to Oto unprecedented rise
in rents here, and the extreme difficulty in pro?
curing eligible unfurnished bouses, except at the
most unreasonably exorbitant figures. It had
been confidently hoped and expected that as the
month of April advanced, and tba first of May
the great moving day-grew nearer and nearer at
hand, tho landlords, fearful of having their houses
loft untenanted, would yield gracefully, and lower
their high notions and high rents at the same
time; but life is made up of disappointments and
miscalculations, and these are of them; for the
ovil is unabated, and the house-rent panic (I mean
panic among the pay-rental class) grows with its
growth. In yesterday's Herald on advertisement
appeared of a desirable house to rent, in a good
location, Thirty-Sixth street, near Sixth avenne,
price only $1200; and applicants therefor were in?
vited to call at the residence of the advertiser,
bdtween the hours of 9 and ll in the morning.
I fear your rc dors maj suspect me of exaggeration
when I assure them that this little notice created
moro excitement among certain classes here than'
would havo been produced by the announcement
that tho Supreme Court had given a decision
against tho constitutionality of the Reconstruction
Act. I can only say- in reply that. the circum?
stance I am about to relate is founded strictly on
fact, and will leave the facts to speak for them?
selves. At the appointed hour MOULTRIE found
himself at the scene of action, haying gono thero
not officially as your correspondent,-but yet c faci?
ally in another capacity, viz : That of a house
seeker, acting in behalf of an about-to-be house?
less friend. If the man hod advertised to give out
gold in exchange for ex-Confederate currency, tho
house could not have been moreicrowd?d with
cager applicants ; the parlor was lilied with ladies,
tho, passage-way was crowded-there was a perfect
jam outside and around the entrance, and, in fact,
it was almost impossible to get inside tho house.
MOULTRIE, however, wedged bis way in'to see ibo
fun. At nine o'clock the gentleman made .bis ap?
pearance, lite a Mayor at his court, and announced
that he. would first give an audience to tho
lady, who ho had been informed-'by bis servant
(who wore'white gloves) bad been waiting patiently
since seven o'clock; The patient lady was recoivod
in a room adjoining the crowded parlor, then an?
other lady, then another still, each one marching
in in a post office stylo. Tho crowd, however, grew
impatient < and made a rush for tho private room;
whereupon the gentleman came forward like a can?
didate for a public office and addressed them all
collectively. He began by stating that the house
hos no yard, whereupon about a dozen of tho
ladies wore seen to disappear suddenly. Next he
slated that some of the rooms were rather small,
then added in a kind of parenthotc style, that
there was a mistake in the advertisement as to tho
oxact locality in which the bouse is situated, and
concluded bis address by remarking .that be re?
gretted to state that better-half being indisposed
he himself was indisposed to eb ow thc house to
each or any ot the assembled multitude till some
time next week. To describe the scene that en?
sued at the termination of this oration is almost
impossible. Noses were turned ao contemptuously
(some of .them tantalizingly pretty noses) that
they seemed determined to remain up .Uko the j
rente. A rush was made for tho door, your cor-j
respondent being tho first one out, and the house
was soon vacated by those who will have tb vacate !
their own houses before the first of .May, or stand
the raise in their rents and accept the situation
that they cannot better-except by taking a
house in an up-town situation, and moving up to
some point between 80th and 130th streets, the
terminus of Third Avenue Railroad, and aride of.
one hour and twenty minutes from .the City Hall
-Park.: -
Some little excitement bas been created here by
the arrival of the Great Eastern; not, however.,
from aiiV diadre to w?mj??fichtetdun:.for:tbe cen??
is curiosity bas been gratified, on that poin? on
two occasions (in 1860and 1862), but because many
bad feared that she had gone to bottom, as she
crossed the ocean in quite a leisurely and digni?
fied style, taking fourteen; d*ys .from port to port,
^The Great Eastern may be-in fact is-the largest
and bandsomest'steamship.afioat, yet, should I ever
have occasion to go across the water j uncoupled
with a desire to go under, I would prefer embark?
ing in a smaller craft. ' ''
. I.haye hitherto purposely avoided any allusion to
the outrageous crusade against a class of people
whom, spite of religious (or rather irrehgious) pre?
judice, we cannot but respect, by such of tho Insur?
ance Companies as claim to havo suffered by taking
what they-are pleased to call "Jew risks;" but as
the. er -itement bas bsen resumed, andas there aro
no less than sixty thousand Israelites hero who
protest against tho bose calumny, my duty as a'
correspondent induces me at least to give the
facts as they are. A card: has been published in.
the Herald, which, it is supposed, emanates from
one of the Insurance Agents, reiterating the
charges and attempting to substantiate the
truth (?) thereof; wherefore, an indignation meet?
ing is to be held on Monday next, in which many
of the wealthiest and most respectable Jewish
merchants and capitalists will take part. No less
than sixty of the largest'and oldest' Insurance
Companies bi.the United States have made state?
ments giving the lie unqualified and direit to these -
ridiculous charges; bnt, nevertheless, tbs .lie hue "
taken root in all directions, "proving that' though
truth be mighty it will not always prevail,'and that
tho seeds of falsehood, planted in tho soil of pre?
judice, and. tvatered by the hand of. ignorance, ?wfil
spring up with a groodly crop (or a badly crop) of
lies; :'

that it would soon come into general use hero.

"would act generously, modify the iron-clad oath,"
Sec., that all who have been bad boys will not only
be good boys to Uncle Sam, bat will throw their
Northam Democratic friends overboard, and that
" the Radical party will carry South Carolina
almost unanimously for their candidate for the
next Presidency." Tho correspondent does not

THE ? IGHT TN THE RICHMOND CUSTOM HOUSE.--,
The Herald's Bichmo. d correspondent gives the
following account of the rough and tumble between
the Hon. Mr. Segar and the Collector of this part,
in the Custom House tho other day :
Tho variations of the day's amusement com?
menced with an interesting checking match be?
tween the Hon. Joseph Segar and Mr. James,
tho Collector in Richmond, which was brought
about by a demand on the. part of tho former
for certain over-assosr.cd monies beloutring to
citizens, which had been ordered to be refunded
by the Secretary of the Tr?a?riry, Mi. Segar,
representing these parties, presented a power
of attorney to Mr. James, consisting of riaim?
. of sixty-six poraons, amounting to some' $4080
and demanded payment. Mr. James examined
tbe paper, made some objection, and not only re
fused to pay, but by a flank movement subsequents
; ly obtained possession of the paper and secreted
it upon his person. Segar, seeing he oould notget
the money, demanded the paper, but without suc?
cess, whon bs seized James by"the rolUr.--a.rid
shook him violently. James still obstinately re?
fused to givo up the paper, when ^gar. releasing
hold of his collar, seized him by the throat, and
Sat a timo thara was a pcssib?tt.y oi tho department
being minus a collector, when a third party inter?
posed in tho per?^n of a Mr. Smith, who separated
tho belligerents ?ndpU fi?ed himself for the return

returned to his betel, Kt up to the present time
tho document has not been returned.
CHARLESTON, S. C
THE COLORKD SCHOOLS OF CHARUBS
TOIf.
The negro has boon emancipated from slavery ;
been endowed with civil rights by Congress and
the Legislature of tho State ; and more recently
still he hos hod tbe greatest - boon of a freeman
conferred upon bim--a right to a Voice in-tho af?
fairs or the State and nation. In order to a proper
and salutary exercise of these newly acquired pri?
vileges, it is all important that his actions should
be directed by intelligonce. Owing to circumstan?
ces over which ho had no controL'the negro to-day
is ignorant and' uneducated. He sees tbe- white
man around bim occupy a social position superior
to Iris own and he naturally ascribes it to the fact
of tho greater advantage's ot education be basen-.
I joyed. Accordingly wo find, throughout tho South,
wherever the negroes-hare'become .thoroughly
alive to their newly acquired political importance,
a great, almost universal desire for " education."
Of course, their ideas on the subject are vague, and
not unfreqnently, erroneous. They expect impossi?
bilities. They have not yet learned that silk purses
cannot be made out of every kind of material. Thu s
we not unfrequently soe great.-uncou?h, unclean
I girls, eighteen and twenty years old, as far as age
can bo judged from looks,-the very beau ideal of
an old-style plantation hand, ' sitting unhappily on
a hard bench in the school room, thumbing, soil?
ing and dog-earing an unfortunate WEBSTER'S
spelling book; learning nothing, and certainly not
onjoying their idlehess;for being Bhut up for hours
in a hot and crowded school room, and sitting pu j
a hard and narrow bench, is no fun, even to a ne?
gro, who bad been accustomed to regular work in
the open air. This class of students, as a general
thing, do not rem?m long at school; - their mo?
thers soon, becoming weary of maintaining?them
in idleness, while they themselves are engaged jin
hard work, and, unless the scholar shows a special |
aptness for "book learning," arid is likely to ''take
an education," tbe attempt is soon abandoned.
This, of course, has reference more especially -td '
those born on the plantations, who have emigrated
to tho city within the post two years.
There are two large schools hore, devoted
to the furtherance of the-cause of education I
among the colored people of the city. One, tbe
SAXTON School, is in the Military Hall, in Wedt^ j
worth street, the same which last year occupied the
Normal School building in St. Philip street, in
charge of Kev. P. L. CARDOZO. The other, in
charge of Mr. AUTHUR SUMNER, is in the Morris
Street School building. The latter being tho older
of-the two, wc shall speak of it first. !
. The Morris Street School, built by the' Board bf
Commissioners of Free Schools, of this city, a few
years before the war, was .opened for the reception
of colored-cb?dien in Marchj'looo. ""There are'
about 850 names on the rolls, - average attendance
? being 607, or 77 per centum. The Principal of this
School is aided in his labors by 16 assistants, 13 of
whom aro-'white and'3(.colored ; 5 of the teachers
aro from 'the-North.';.The .number enrolled fqr
Morcb -tras '78o-^^ ;grr?s:'ahd 333 boys. The
were in March 48 ov?rlo years of age. $73 50 was

Grammar is di"?-;Te?'"wb?!n>?"i& School graded
into Intermediate and Graimnicr Classes.
"As a general thing,*-says" Mr. SUMNER, in a ra
j cent lotter, published in the Boston Transcript,
'all that these children know of' the aforesaid
j parts of science has been acquired since the 14th
: pf March, 1865. Those who have attended con?
stantly have had twenty months of schooling'.
Bat they range all the way down to ono month. I
believe that most of the very best scholars coul?
read a little (some of them pretty wau) when !thb
Union came in.' - Bat very many who are now in
the Third, and some who aro in thc 4th Reader;
did not know their letters a year ago. Of Arithmetic,
-Writing and Geography,-they wore, aim o st with?
out exception, totally ignorant;" - '
-We rtavn^-wjrlv .VTOteflT'thio 'fi.-V-inl "ktMLmui
testily to the proficiencyiof some of tho pupils in
reading, mental arithmetic, and even in writing. ]
Grammar, it appears, is not studied, and
Geography very tittle, because these studies are
not considered necessary to the greater number of
the rising freedmen. Wo said some'of the pupils
read well ; this we must qualify, however. They
have been pretty well drilled in the rules ; enun?
ciate distinctly, and read with some expression, or
what must bc. considered its semblance ; for real
expression there can be none, when the reader
docs not understand]the subject.be is reading
: about ; and this, with scarcely a single exception^
is the case with all the best readers even wsjfouhd
in our visits to both the colored schools. lit may?
be we expect . impossibilities, and look for
sprightliness.and general inteUigence, where, from
tbe nature of - the case,,they cannot, at least for
some years, ba reasonably expected.
The "Saxton School," now at the Military Hall,':
was established-October 1, 1385, in the 'Normal,
? School Building : Rev. F. L. CABDOZO, Principal, i
assisted by a corps- of twenty teachers, ton of
whom were colored natives-seven females andi
three males-the other ten white female "teachers j
from the -North.;; During tho term ' cf 1865-'66:
there were one thousand scholars on the rolls. :The j
school was graded into three departments-after the
system prevailing in tho caramon schools through
out the North-Primary-, Intermediate and Glam-:
mar. : There was a farther division of the scholars ',
into - twenty class es-two in the Gram m ar. Depart- i
merit, six in the Intermediate, and twelve in tho 1
Primary. . The present term commenced on the
' first ot October, 1860, and (viii close on the, 30th of
June. The Principal is assisted tins term by four?
teen teachers-eight ot whom are colored natives,
six females and two males;' and six whifej feroales
from the North. There aro eight hundred and
j fifty pupils registered this term, divided into four?
teen classes, two in the Grammar, six in the Inter
I mediate and six in the Primary Department.''
The books are purchased direct from .the pub?
lishers, and the scholars pay for them when -they
are 'able, and when too poor to pay, they receive
them gratis. -The average attendance daring the
first term wss>about 84 per cent.; and during the
present term, thus far, it has been" about 75 per
cont. The proportion of freedmen to those who
were free before the war, among the scholars of
this school,' is about three to one. The number of
those of pure African descent and of'mixed blood
is about equal. AH the scholars, we are informed
by the Principal, are making most creditabla pro?
gress ; though we must confess, in all candor, that
this is not very obvious. Still it may be so, aa the
Principal hos bettor means for judging than an
occasional visitor can possibly have. Three- of the
most advanced boys have been sent to Oberlin Col?
lege, in Ohio, wo believe, to receive a collegiate
' education, the expensa being defrayed: byi three
j Northern gentlemen. . .-i??k? ni
The* school is supported by. the American Mis?
sionary Association of New York. The*';co8t*,0f
each scholar' is about ono dollar per month, .at.
which amount nearly one-eighth is contributed by
the scholars.' We axe requested to state thai

ago. The children ara rule are neither clean nor
tidy. True, in tho condition of life, to which moat
of them belong, il cannot bs expected that they
should be finely dressed; wear their Sunday clothes
every day, or come with elaborate toilets; hut-it ia
within tho power ot every good teacher to hive bis
of her childr?n corde tb. school neat and clean. We
db not like iq say what 4-?Vbe unpleasant either to
the teachers or 'to-the parents; but cleanliness" is'
Che first lesson in education, as there can bo no
self-respect without it; And; therefore, no healthy
ambition. - Th? other fault wo und, sw irls-akin
to-the first, is-that the-deportment of the chudren
in the-class-room is not whaitef had expected.
There re' more' 'hstiesshesS -thah .we.'.'iBaw' on our
visits last year; it may be because the charm"of
j novelty ha? passed, away; oornmemontbecomes
irksome, and going "to'school begins to look too
much Uko work; Or it may be -that tho teachers,
ssy of stemmisg the current, har* r?Jaxed their
I vigilance or abated their energy; and succuraood
; to the irresjstibte Joros cf old negro habits. The
J task of these' teachers ia shard and thankless one;
j and we regret exceedingly to bo compollod "by
j truth to say ono word -that looks like blame, or
U&ATIJRD?Y MORNING,
that could tend to discourage them in their ardu?
ous work. '."
Tho Morris street School, wo should have men?
tioned above, is supported by tho Now England
Freedmen's Union Commission. Mr. .SUJINER, the
Principal,' in bis letter to the Boston Transcript.
gives tho following account of theprogress of his
advanced scholars in the art of thinking, and of
giving expression to their ideas : '
"In writing, about one-half (little ones and new
scholars) are using slates; tho others are in copy?
books-from book No", f to No. 8. Tio more ad?
vanced classes write letters and compositions.
Their letters, I am forced to confess, aro chiefly
upon ono theme-tho superior, nay, the adorable
qualities of their instructors. One girflately finish?
ed a letter to her teacher thus : 'Goodbye, my dear,
loving teacher, you sweet little sugar plum.' I
saw upon che blackboard a day or two ago : 'I love
my teacher because she is good, and she loves me
because 1 am good and always does right.' "
There are, besides these two large public schools,
several small private colored schools in this city,
which, however, we have not visited.
'The'G?ri?an Treaties.
HOW -THE PRUSSIAN AB RANGEMENTS WTTH THE
SOUTHERN STATES ' WEBE BROUGHT ABOUT.
A Heidelberg correspondent furnishes tho sub?
joined particulars relative to the treaties between
Prussia and the Southern' States:
The constitution of a Southern Confederation
was to be prevented at any cost, SB it wonld have
been an obstacle to tho projects of Prussia. If
the Sudbund had Boen tho light,: its conditions
of ? existence wonld have been regulated by
a Parliament which certainly would not have
admitted the Prussian military system, but
would, on- the. contrary, .have adopted a
plan similar to that bf the Swiss national militia.
Instead of an offensive and defensivo alliance with
the house of Hohenzollern, it would have pro?
nounced for an armed neutrality. Bat the most
important point for Count Bismarck was to have
at his disposal, at any given moment, the military
resources of tho German States on the loft bank of
the Main. . Ho, therefor o, lost - no-time, but pro?
fited by. the presence i at Borhn of the foreign Min?
isters of the Southern States to nogotiato not only
terms of peaco, bnt also treaties of alliance, offen- !
sivo and defensive.. Baden-had already been won
over ; but, under piin of a chock, there was a nc
1 cessity for gaining Bavaria also," os her adhesion
would produce that of Wurtemburg and of the
Grand Duchy of Hesse.
At that, moment there arose all of a sudden
those famous demands by France, of territorial
compensation which have been repeatedly spoken
of in tho press, bat never in the tribune of the
legislative body. According to tho Berlin Be vi cw,
Napoleon TTT. set up no pretension to encroach on
the Prussian territory; he claims Rhenish Bavaria
and Rhenish Hesse. If these demands had not
obtained the result expected in Paris, they brought
an unhoped-for succor to Count Bismarck. "Be?
ing communicated," that publication states, "to
the Bavarian plenipotentiary, they led' to an
immediate understanding. Nevertheless, Baron
vpn- der Piortden, who was not in a- position to
make a display of an alliance between Bavaria
and Prussia, remained in office in order to con?
ceal by bis, presence the game from tho distrustful
glance of Austria, and from tho jealous eye of
France.. When the pear was ripe,.that is to say,
when the resistance -. of Wurterotrarg and of th?e
Grand Duchy of Hesso was overcome in their tum.
Baron von der Pfortden was ouabled^td retire and
S've up his post to the Prince of Hohenlohe. This
Uer person was charged to conduct the affair to
a successful conclusion. Ministerial "conferences
took place at Siutgardt. The Ministers of Foreign
I Affairs and of War for Bavaria, Wurtemberg. Baden
j and Hesse-Darmstadt, 'countersigned the act
of Count Bismarch. Nevertheless, if I am to be
I heve the information I have- received, tho treaties
just published do hot "contain the whole extent of
the stipulations. There is stu! .a supplementary
article which it has bean thought proper to keop
secret, in order not to bo obliged to submit the
treaties to the approbation of the Chambers. The
clause in question relates to the organization of an
armed force. Count Bismarckdocs not .want mere
soldiers; he wishes to have well drilled men, and
[ he has therefore stipulated that the contingents of
I the South should'' be reorganized on the model of
tho Prussian army. And if any differences arose
I at the conferences, they turned- only on a single
' point, namely, the sort of rifle that ought to be
adopted. ... ; r

history of- Huvti '.since.tho jicgropopulation ob?
tained its freedom hos been a series of sanguinary
revolutions and civil wara, and the country,
is probably in a worse condition now than ever
.before. Tue negro leaders have never shown!
themselves capable of agreeing upon or es?
tablishing . anything like a sound, and sub?
stantial government, lire and property have
alviays been exceedingly .. insecure and the
constant dangar of now revolutions hos tended
to keep the country in a deplorable condition.;
If the African rac? had any capacity for self-gov?
ernment they have, tho best possible "opportunities
of ; developing these talents in Hayti, where they
have had things their own way for moro than
. twenty years past. The trouble appears to be that
their own way is a very disorderly and rebellious
'one.- They have gone backwards ia morals and
education, and have attained proficiency in. none
of the arts of civilization except that of war and.
political.intrigue. Under then--own management
their property and credit have alike deteriorated,
in value, and tho nation'has made itself an object
of pity to those who expected better things of the.
race, and af ridicule to ' those .who understood
them better?nd foresaw the result of the wild ex?
periment of negro self-government. The normal!
condition-ot. the negro is -such that it is only byl

Even after sut1 h- advantages' there is an inevitable.
