A HAPPY NEW YEAR.
For the second timo in its eventful
life The Leader enjoys the pleasure
of wishing its patrons a Happy New
Year, and many, many, happy re
turns. Looking back over our work
of the year we can see much that
might havo been better done, but
nothing to which more honesty of
purpose or greater devotion to the
public good could havo been brought.
The Leader came into existence as
the special organ of the colored
people, but the enemy of no nation
ality. It has been our purpose to
w

refuto to the extent of our ability the
idea that the Negro is the intellectual
inferior of the white man. This wo
hopedtoaccomplish notmore than, nor
even so much, by our own contribu
tions as by those which wo should
glean from Negro intellects through
out tho country. We return our
thanks to tho public for the generous
patronage and encouragement thus
fir received, and we consecrate our
3elves anew to the great work of
helping to make tho men of our race
tjie peers of any people on the globe,
morally intellectually and financially.
An excellent testimonial of your
sympathy with our work will bo a
subscription to The Leader.

1'ev. J. M. Townsend, of .Richmond,
lud , instituted proceedings recently
looking to a suit for damages against
the School Board of that city, for re
fusing to allow colored children to
enter the public schools where Ger
man is taught. To avoid tho suit
the Board, we arc informed, is mak
ing an addition to tho colored school
building and will also provide an in
structor in German for it. We are
glad to see our people breakingdown
all barriers that prevent them or
their children from entering any in
stitutions supported at public ex
pense. It is, of course, the spirit of
caste that they are fighting, and
Elder. Townsend and our Bichmond
friends shall have every possible sup
port we eaifgive them in this con
test jigainst a blind and unjust preju
dice. There is not apt to be an embit
tered struggle in the Logislaturo for
the Senatorship. There are probably
half a dozen active caudidates for tho
place, but such is tho happy condi
tion of our politics that all the can
didates will cheerfnlly acquiesce in
the choice of the gentleman who re
ceives tho party no mination. Gen
eral Harrison will undoubtedly go
intocaucuss with tlia largest follow
ing, and tho chances arc in favor of
his receiving the nomination. That
he will discharge the duties belong
ing to the high station with distin
guished abilities, is not doubted by
anybody who knows him.
The Legislature convenes next
Thursday, the Governor will bo in
augurated on tho 10th, and if every
thing sails along smootlhy as theswan
on "still St. Mary's Lake," the suc
cessor to Mr. McDonald in the Uni
ted States Senate will be chosen on
the 18th.
N. B.
Just as we go to press our regular
correspondence from Detroit comes
to hand too late, we regret, for pub
lication. Cleveland, Springfield and
Logansport all came too late for in
sertion this week. Delayed trains
arc doubtless tho cause.
Truly, indeed, the "world do
move." Schofield to the contrary,
notwithstanding, as witness the fol
lowing compliment to Lieutenant

On Saturday last, at the "Court," I noticed
the Prince of Wales studying English history,
as road through the imaginative spectacles
of Schiller and Hon. Xewis Wiugfield.
Closely, critically, and enthusiastically, the
Priice watched the curious page ot our
English life that was unfolded before him,
and I wonder if this curious thought struck
him when he went round for his wnntml
entr'acte cigarettethat of Henry VIII.
and Elizabeth not one single descendant is
alive, and that he himself is the eleventh in
direct descent from poor, much abused
Marie Stuart! Nay, more, through the
marriage with Frederick of Prussia, tho
Princess of Wales has also some Stuart
blood in her veins, and if you think it tut
you will find that with tho exception of
Turkey every reigning royal family in
Europe can ba traced to the stock of the
beautiful woman who was beheaded in
Fotheringa, something over three centuries
ago. What a curious freak of history it was
that brought the descendant of Sophia and
the "beautiful Queen of Bohemia" to reign
in England when the older line was exhausted.

tlie rub Ic?
Foniey't Prugreae.J
This question almost provokes an uncon
ditional reply yes because the public do
not seem to be able to sink the individuality
of tho woman in the actress, and so they
make it their special affair to carefully
scrutinize the private life of the woman,
often losing sight of her real merit as an
artist.
Did you ever notice how entirely conver
sant are busybodics with the personal his
tory of their friends? And does it not im
press you as almost the same oSicioiisness
when you hear the private character of a
woman, act she on either side of the foot
lights, being handled in the roughest, mot
inconsiderate manner? This is not all either.
A little conversational denunciation might
escape the opprobrium of scandalous gossip;
but when nowspapers denounce and hotels
refuse admittance to an actress because of
her immorality, it is about timo for women
to look around them and compare notes.
And these are some of the points they use;
also they are facts that so stare one in the
face that it is impossible to arrive at the
justice of this wholesale condemnation of
feminine frailties until these facts arc some
what explained.
A little woman who shall be nameless,
but whose wit is as keen and brain as active
as tho December air she breathe3 to-day I
always feel sory when I seo such women
that their lot has not been cast in needy
places where glorious opportunities would
be given thorn for work well, this one
woman recalls the time when Fechter first
came to America, and how little he cared
what the world knew of his private li:V.
Were any of the hcteU closed against him?
Were any social barriers built up around
him? Did the journals denounce or eari a
ture him? He is dead now, you say; let
him rest. Yos, be is dead, so is Neilson.
Is her memory so sacred? But the strange
inconsktency about it all is, that no one
thinks to question whether an actor ha a
wife, what his social relations may be, or
whether his hand is worthy to clasp that of
your wife, sister, and mothor. He is a gen
ius; that is suflicient. I could mention a
dozen names, observing tho same high
standard of morality as Fechter's, where
genius leads the masculine artist into realms
of purity, and no thought of a tarnished
brightness dulls the magnetism of his society.
'Ye gods I" as they say in tho classic plays,
I can not understand why genius should bo
burdened with sex, nor why, when tho soul
speaks across the footlights, we must needs
torment ourselves about the casket incarnr.to
that is honored with it keeping.
Besides, this peering into the life of an
actress is of very little avail. She seldom
has much in sympathy with tho social world.
Why should she? She does not need its re
cognition, has no time for its pleasures, and
though her success on the stages depends
upon the plaudits of the multitude, she is in
dependent of their friendship. Why, think
of tho difiereneo in the lives of the women
that the drop-curtain divides! How is it
possible they can understand each other,
make allowances for certain custoraa, and
excue what to either might on one side be
considered propriety, on tho other inde
corum, to 8y the least7
I begin to believe that women naturally
have not half tho inquisitivcnoss of men,
and it is an awful pity that this should be
so, should have commenced so, because now
wo have a lifetime of difficulties to sur
mount. We havo submitted our conduct
to these brethren of ours with a feeling
secure in its faith, while they in turn havo
accustomed themselves to bo our severe
judge. They are not altogether to blame,
and their injustice is like going to sleep at a
stipulated hour, and arising likewise, from
the force of habit. They are used to it. But
it can not. last forever, Wmn kvo

TVby you can do better at our store

you in gentlemanly manner.
"learned tho alphabet,", and now reason
speaks to them in a new tongue. These
protectors have become tempters; they can
not therefore be judges. Children once iat
upon the throne and condemned criminals;
but this is not the age of criminals to sit
upon the throne and condemn their victims.
However, in order to arrive at the truth
of a subject we must consider both sides of
it, and here is something from a young lady
who lives in a country town. Maybe you
are not awaro that girls outside of large
cities devote more time to thought and
study than many of our gaslight beauties.
Therefore, when they speak, they have con
sidered. This is what she says:
"How advanced do you mean to become,
dear friend?
An actress, genius or no genius, ought to
be judged by exactly the same rule that is
supposed to be a good one for the race at
lea?t the feminine part of it, in its present
state of enlightment. Still, I admit I'm
dying to tee Bernhardt work herself up to
forne grand d'SDlay of passion.'
Now if this is the point, that we are to
prove tb virtue ot our women by parading
disapprobation of vice, why, of course, if
this is necessary there is nothing more to be
said. But I do not think it is.
As to bringing into our home circles a
moral or religious free-thinker bewitched by
the gift of genius, it depends somewhat
upon the character of a home-circle whether
the moral standard of the genius would be
elevated or the domestic standard lowered.
Don't you believe in giving every woman a
chance to be better? Every man has that
opportunity, and yet they are so much
stronger. Where is the justice in attacking
wmQ.n when perchance the very same man
who is loudest in his clamors against her,
has a lifetime of sin yet unrepented. I know
we admire in others what we have not our
selves. Even intidels have wished their
women pious and devout, but the.e is no
justice in this. It is all very well to twaddle
about not setting a premium upon vice, of
making glorious examples, etc., when social
life receives into its midet with a welcom
ing Ptnile, the defaulter, the murderer and
the libertine. A gentleman, mark you,
gentleman in this citv, declares he has
violated all known moral laws, and you can
not close, the doors of society against him
self. And he is not even a man of genius,
only an attractive, dashing nob about town.

Thirty years ago people were a frank and
truthful set. Strangers could come here
and trade horses with their eyes shut, and
breach of promise cases were unknown.
Folks meant what they said, and whon they
gave their word stuck to it.
Exactly thirty years ago this month a
widower from New Yrk fctate appeared in
Lansing on businosi. The same business
carried him over to DeWitt, eight miles
iirt'iiy. Y'hile en route he stopped at a log
fan;i-houe to warm his cold fingers. He
was warmly welcomed by the piuAeer and
his wiie, both of whom were wli along in
years, and after some general talk, the wo
man queried;
Am I right in thinking you are & wid
ower ;
"Yos."'
'Did vou eomo out here to And a wife?''
"Partly."
"Did anv one tell you of our Susie?"
"No."
"Well, we've got as bouncing a eirl of
twenty-two as you ever set eyes on. She's
good-looking, healty and good tempered,
and I think she'll like vour looks."
"Where is she?''
"Over in tho woods, here, chopping down
a coon-tree. Shall I blow the horn for her?"
"No. If you'll keep an eyo on my horse
I'll find her."
'iWell, there's nothing stuck up or
aflcctid abojt Suio. She'll say yes or no
as soon as she. looks you ovor, If you want
her, dor.'t he atraid to tay so."
The stranger heard the sound of her ax
and followed it. He found her just as the
tree was ready to fall. She was a stout
good-looking girl, swinging the ax like a
man, and in two minutes he had decided
to say:
"Susie, I am a widower from New York
State; I'm thirty-nine years old, have one
child, own a good farm and I want a wife.
Will you go back home with me?"
She leaned on the ax and looked at him
for half a minute, and then replied:
"Can't say for certain. Just wait till I
get these coons o(T my mind.".
She sent the tree crashing to the carth,
and with hU holp killed five coons, which
wore stowed away in a hollow.
( Well, what do you say?" he asked as the
last coon stopped kicking.
"I'm your'nl'' was the reply; ''and by the
time you get back from De Witt I'll have
thce polts off and tacked up and bo ready
for the preacher I"
IIo returned to the house, told the old
folks that he should bring a preacher back
with him, and at "dusk that evening the
twain were married. Hardly an hour had
been wasted in courting, and yet he took
home one of the best girls in tho State of
Michigan.
