Greener at the Harvard Annual Dinner School I rouble Frof elisor Greg ory Weak-kneed Colored Trustees Con (reo o Be Appealed To. I had the pleasure of reading the other day in the March number of the Harvard College Register, an ac count of the annual dinner of the New York Alumni of Harvard, at "which Prof. K. T. Greener was pres ent and made a very happy speech. The distinguished literateur, Edwar 1 .Everett, Hale, followed Mr. Greener, and paid him and Harvard College the following beautiful compliment: "I have been talking anout things which I did not mean to advert to when I got up, and I will now say what I did mean to say. I wanted to s&y that my friend Greener, on the other side of the table, did not do himself justice when he spoke of the hospitality which the College has al ways accorded to all races of men I can tell a story which illustrates at once that hospitality and Mr. Greener's use of it. For this story was called to my memory only a few days ago by the recent parvenu out burst of animosity to that great Hebrew race, from which, even if it do not yet understand the full pur pose of God in history, none the less nave God's greatest messages to this world been spoken. It so happened that it was my official duty, when Mr. Greener was yet connected with the College, to announce to a large audience one of those signal successes of his, which he has modestly for gotten in what little he has said of himself. It was the day of the Boylston Competition, when selected speakers from all classes competed for what are the largest premiums, I bei ieve offered by the University. In'announcing that result at the din ner table, 1 had to say that it was a sad day for Anglo Saxon pride, for the first prize had been given to an African and the second to a Jew. To Anglo Saxon pride this might be a blow; but there is no Harvard man who hears me who is not proud that our mother distributes her honors where they belong, without favor, to children of every race." Quite a sensation has been created in school circles here by the demand of Prof. J M. Gregory that his six year old boy be admitted the school nearest bis home which happens to be a so-called white school. The Trustee refused to order the teacher to receive the child and Mr. Gregory annealed the matter to the Board of Education. After a brief discussion the matter was referred to a committee for future consideration. The school is in the subdrbs of Washington near Howard University, but is just out side of the city limits, properly. The case is peculiar indeed. Mr. Wormier, the Trustee who has re fused to permit Mr. Gregory's child to attend the so-called white school, is himself a colored man, and when the case eame up before the General Board, several ot whose members are colored, not one of them had the manhood to denounce the indignity offered to their race, and one was cowardly enough to allude to the ad mission of colored children to other so-called white schools as a violation of the law. Prof. Gregory, I under stand, is determined to push the matter even to the halls ot Congress, where doubtless justice will be ob tained. It is to be hoped that this case will call attention to the matter to the end that at the Capital of the Nation, at least, all distinctions on account ot color shall be abolished. Professor Gregory closes his appeal pira, to the Board in the following lan guage: "If it be claimed that at the time of the establishment of the present pub lic school system in the District of Columbia expediency demanded sep arate schools, so that persons of different colors in ijht send to special ones if the choose to do so, and that in the large number of cases these have beon sufficient for the public needs, still this expediencjr docs not vest3our honorable bod with legal power to erect into law against the provisions of several acts of Conirres. absolute discriminations against citi zens on account of their race orco'o , to disregard in admissions to school all considerations of convenience or propriety, and to inflict upon inno cent children pains and degrada- tion dictated oy the pre judices of times now hap pily past. The circumstances of the present case make it one of peculiar hardship. My child is of tender ac, being less than seven years old. The Prescott building is hardly a square distant from mv residence, and is easily accessible from it. The school kept in it is attended by many of Eu gene's playmates, who have never yet made him aware of any prejudices, racial or otherwise, against him, and I think that his presence in the school would not be disagreeable either to the teachers or pupils. On the other hand, the school to which I must presume the trustee in charge wishes me to send the child is more than three times as far from my resi dence as the school in the Prescott building It is at the bottom ot a long hilt, is accessible by a road part of which is not paved, and hich is not easily traversed in inclement weather by a child of six vears of age. To exclude him from the Prescott school is, in effect, to impose upon me the alternative of seeking to educate him at great ex pense in other schools where this un just discrimination is not made, or to teach him at this tender age that he is now to be public! assigned to a proscribed class of the citizens of his country, and thus deprived of that equality before the law which is es tablished in the constitution of the United States. I do therefore re spectfully petition you to reverse the decision of Mr. Wormlcy, the trustee in charge, and of the sub-board of the division, and to grant the appli cation which I now make to you for the admission of my son Eugene to the school kept in the Prescott build ing, situated at the intersection of Sixth street extended north into the county and Sumner street."

The "mixed school, or give us equal facilities" question Is now that which agitates the minds of our citi zens so greatly at the present that it has been found necessary to issue the call for a citizens' meeting, which fact your corre spondent gave in last week's letter, with the promise that jou should hear more anon. In accordance to the desire to fulfill tbat promise to the benefit of the readers of the Leader, we resorted last Wednesday evening to the scene of action, laid at North street A. M. E. Church, where an opportu nity was to be given to all who desired to ventilate their ideas freely and give honest expression of their sentiments in regard to the school question. Upoa our arrival we found an assemblage of about 125, consti tuting mainly the rank and file of the brain and culture of this city, presided over by Mr. Frank D?nt,and B. W. Chinn acting as Secretary. Though we were late in getting there we gleaned from the short talks that were given that tho object really was to take into consideration ways and means by which equal facilities with wliite children in our public schools can be secured to the col ored pupils of our city. It was stated that there was a colored nomilation of 4.000 having between 300 and 400 children of school age, and yet the facilities were un equal, and that above a certain age, colored pupils had to travel from thirteen to eighteen squares, parsing three fine build ings, in all kinds of weather, to reach their sctiool. Mr. ueo. ICeynIds and Kev. J. W. Gazzaway were the principal talkers, as it waa their children who had been refused admission to tho white schools, but they did not wish the citizens to entertain the idea that this meeting was intended to be an indignation meeting, but really they had called it with a view to bringing a test case in the Courts by a mandamus Buit. Mr. ueo. Reynolds then presented a paper signed by twelve members of the School Board, both Democrats aDd Republicans, reading as fol lows: ''We, the undersigned members of the School Board of the city of Springfield, be lieving that the colored children in the northwestern portion of the city have not equal school facilities with the white chil dren in that part of the city, are in favor of THE PRESIDENT'S CHILDREN MKV. J AM KS. HARRY. While according the fullest credit to the con summate skill of the medical gentlemen who surround the bed of the Chief Kxecutive at the present moment, we can not divest ourselves of the idea that the constant presence of the devot ed wife and that of hi.- children has contributed In no pmall degree to that frame of mind which is so indispensable to convalescence, and whose subtle alchemy sometimes transmutes the most hopeless of cases lntoJdily health and strength. fcvery time that the languid eyes of the dis- tinguifshed sufferer have been lighted up by the passing form, or the tender solicitude of those so near and dear to him, and who have been keep ing constant and loving vigil at the White House. the progress of his sore ailments must have been arrested for the moment at least, and life and death held in equipoise, or the beam, perhaps. turned, if ever so lightly, In a direction contrary to that which had but just characterized It. Having alreadr presented to our readers the portrait of Mrs. Garfield, and that of the venera ble mother of the President, we supplement these to-day with the likenesses of his five children, making the immediate family group complete. Among the living representatives of this group, with the President at their head, the utmost love and affection has always prevailed, and especial ly on the part of the children for their grand mother and parents. Harry A., now aged eighteen, has been educated, thus far. at St. Paul's sichool. Concord, N. II., under the care of Rev. Ir. Coit. He is reputed a young gentleman of excellent capacity and disposition, and likely to attain a taking such immediate action as will afford to them equal facilities in that part ot the city." Mr. Reynolds also stated that thiä paper was only intended to delay action in the proposed suit, for which steps had al ready been taken, until after the meeting of the Board the following Monday' night, thus giving them a chance to do some thing in the direction dtsired. Debate over the intentions of the board, as set forth in the paper, waxed warm, and several mem- Den ot tne board were denounced in un measured terms as being snakes in the grass. Though the object of the meeting was to consider equal facilities, the general tone seemed to indicate that the majority were in favor of equal facilities only through mixed schools absolutely, which sentiment met with hearty approval whenever expressed. Some interesting remarks were made by Mr. James Buford, and also by Esquires Dewell and Newberry, who have been retained as council in the proposed suit. After consid erable discussion a motion was made to ac cept the paper conditionally, until after tho action of the board, which action would be made public at the neit meeting, and pre vailed, an account of which we again prom ise to give our readers. Ave withhold our opinion on this question for the present, space being limited, but will give it the first opportunity Nothing so rejoices us, as to know that Ohio has the prospect of two colored representatives in the halls of our next Legislature.

The Itusiness of the Country Large in All It IS ranches. New York, Sent. 14. From the Public: Exchanges last week were materially disturb ed by the unusual day of fasting and prayer on account of the President In this and some other States the week embraces only live days of business, although exchanges as respects the payments made on drafts and checks by mail were nearly the fame as if the banks had been open six days. In some States exchanges were closed Thursday, as n New York, and in other States Tuesday, and considerable difference results in the comparative amount of payments made during the week. Hence the exchanges can not be regarded of unusual significance, and the increase shown only proves if the volume of business had during the week had been uninterrupted it wou'd have been still more largely in excess of the business done in the corresponding week last year. For the week ending September 6 at ban Francisco, and Septamber 10 at other cities, exchanges were: New York G:i9,907.9S0 Boston .... 6,820,114 Chicago .'. fi6, 75ft, 127 Philadelphia 42,7U0,53 St. Louis 17.673.929 Sau Francisco 17.582.63U Cincinnati 17.191,800 Baltimore 14,027,332 Louisville 8,493,259 Pittsburg 7.220,026 New Orleans t,?w,öo Milwaukee 6.763.W6 Providence. 3.59,700 Kansas City - 3.000.01)0 Clevelaud 2,498,242 Indianapolis 2,271,000 New Haven.

At Wan Francisco there was extraordinary activity in raining stocks on account of the reported discovery of a new bonanza in the ComstocK lode. The increase in business at Louisville may possibly be ascribed to the recent railroad arrangements, but the volume of business is large almost everywhere, and so large that there is no reason to doubt a continuance of general prosperity. Indeed it is a feature of these returns that there is an increase at known centers. Speculative activity is, on the whole, less than at other points where business is almost wholly legitimate. What ever advance there is in the prices of stocks has at least this basis of fact, that the busi ness of the country is larger in almost every branch than ever before. A Horrible Cargo. New York, Sept. 14. A special from London says: A great sensation was caused at Bristol by the discovery of a cargo of 300 tons of human bones being discharged there to the order of a local firm engaged in man ufacturing. The bones were shipped from Rodosto, at Constantinople, and are sup posed to be the remains principally of the delcndersof Flevna. There are complete limbs among the horrible cargo, aud in some cases the hair still adheres to the skulls. Peter Cooper says: "It is a common thing among the JJntish to buy human bones. In fact thev will take all thev can pet at anv time and from any part of the world. They use them for mannring their lands. I have often heard it said that England was ma nured with bones taken from the battlefield at Waterloo.

Iroquois' victory is extremely "popular, anj he and Archerwereenthusiastically cheered. Iroquois attracted much attention by his excellent tyle in the preliminary canter. An excellent start was effected at the first attempt. Iroquois was the quickest away, but Archer immediately pulled him back. Josyan then took the lead, attended by St. Louis, Limestone and Geologist, with Iro quois next. By the time the rifle butts were reached Faulkirk had taken the lead, Ish mael and Lucy Glitters having joined, lead ing the lot in tront of Iroquois, which continued at the head of the st-cond division. At the Red House Faulkirk succumbed to Ishmael, Lucy Glitters second, with St. Louis, Geologist, Scobell, Lime stone and Iroquois well up until a half mile from home. Here Limestone joined Ish mael. After another quarter mile had been traversed the two leaders were beaten, and Pal Gal and St. Louis became distressed. Lucy Glitters momentarily took the lead, but before the distance pole was reached Iroquois came In in full running, winning easily by a length. Geologist passed Lucy Glitters at the last fifty yards.

A Committee of the Templar nii.sion, in concert with the A nti Slavery Society, have arranged to give a public breakfast on Thursday, in honor of the colored Bishops and other representa tives of the African Methodist Churches of America, now attending the Ecumenical Conference. 'I he object promoted by the breakfast is to make a demonstration in favor of the principle of the social equality of the white and colored races. THE LAND ACT A FRAUD. London, Sept. 13. An assistant inspector general of the Irish constabulary has ar lived at Limerick and taken charge of the town until Thursday in connection with the recent disturbances there. Six hundred police are expected and the greatest excite ment prevails. A Dublin correspondent says at a meeting at Kiltullah. Galway, Larkin, of the New York Iriah World, made a violent speech in which he declared that Irishmen should not pay rent except at the point of the bayonet or the mouth of the cannon. The land act, he said, was a fraud. The Ecumenical Conference. London, Sept. 11. At a large meeting in Exeter Hall lat evening in connection with the Ecumenical Methodist Conference, Gen eral Fis.k spoke very earnestly of the in creasing friendliness between Great Britain and the United States. He prayed that they might never be opposed iu war. llev. Dr. Tiffany explained the position and prospects of the Methodist Episcopal Church in Amer ica, and Rev. Dr. Wilson gave a similar ex planation relative to the Methodist Church South. The meeting was instructive and enthusiastic. To-day the dbcus;iou was the higher education demanded by the necessi ties of the Churcli in our .times, the duty of the Church to maintain the schools which are Christian in their character and in rl uence, etc. All speakers ex pressed a strong feeling in favor of higher education for the young. Bishop Holzy (colored) said he re joiced at the movement as tending to im prove the condition af his race. The Times says: "The Methodist Ecu menical Conference offers some very im portant points favorable in comparison with other religious Conferences. There is really no sign of squabbling. Common resolutions to do as much good as possible are so uni versal and strong that they overpower the petty selfishness which create so much friction in other more elaborate machines." Husbands, ray dear ladies, can be coaxed to do almost anything: but it will not do to driv them. If the wife is fond of her own way, the husband is tolerably certain to be similarly inclined, and mutual misery is the result. There should be but one will with a married couple who are truly mated, and that should be the will of both. To those who know the sweet authority of love, this will not seem like a paradox. We have known couples not so many as we could wish both of whom could truthfully say, after a dozen or twenty years' walking öf the long path together, that they had had their own w-ay, because the necessary mutual yielding had been done so cheerfully and so wholly that but the one way remained. The worst of husbands provided he is not dissipated, of course can be nit.aed if you, his wife, can keep him in love with you. When that can be done all the rest follows. How it can be done we do not know; you ought te, if you know what he loved you for in the first place. Wedo not mean simply faithful, and provident and kind, but genuinely loving, few mortals can withstand the iower of faithful, loving devotion. Exchange. ACCIDENT AT THE WATER WORKS. About 3 o'clock Tuesday atternoon an alarm of fire was turned in from box No. 79, and, as is the custom, a double pressure was put on at the Water Works. The extra pressure had been on but a few moments when the large disohargo pipe from the rotary pump on tüe south side of the works burst, flooding the building with water and bringing the machinery in the works to a stand-still.. The entire supply of water was immediately cut off, aud it is cl.iimed by those at the works for but fifteen minutes, when things were righted and the new pumps, or those on the north side of the building, were set in motion, and the supply of water in the city again turned on. The burst pipe in its fall broke the pinions that drive the cam shafts, the ppur trillions that drive the rotary, and the air chamber of the rotary pump, entailing a loss to the Company of about $1,500. The burst ing of the pipe made considerable of a report, and there were all kinds of . rumors afloat regarding the damage done, but the above is about all the loss sustained, and the : water supply is just the same as heretofore. At fire head quarters it is claimed that it was one hour and ten minutes after the accident until the water gauge in that building indicated any pressure.
