I iX'W. LC8K. late ot tho Taztiwoll
county Ripublican Is about to commence
the publication ot a new ltcpubltcun
paper at Springtield. The newspaper
will be called the State Oa:ttU , and will
support tlayes and his Southern policy.
It n laid that the new paper will have
the support ot many state, and nil ot the
federal ouIce-holdcr in and about
Springfield. The State Journal, fiiuce
Mr. Phillips tailed to secure the Spring
field post office, has bneu open la its
opposition to thv president and his
course toward the South: and hence the
desire ot the administration Republicans
for a new paper.
There were sales of real estate in Now
Orleaus last Saturday ajrgritfatinjf $151
175 "all at good, in some cases, hlgi
prices." say the papers, in commenting
on the transaction the Times remarks
If there is one thing that should force
us to a realization or tun fact mat conn
denee is last aasertiug itself in our midst,
It is the gradual but steady enhancement
of real estate. Wu do not go very tar
back to remember tho time when
the sals of this "first ot se
curities" was a matter ot impossibil
ity, it was not a hick oi money
that caused this depression, for the
baukt were uncomfortably lull, and
every one admitted that a total want of
eontiJeuce was the sole cause of the mis
fortune. Hence we argue that the eager
desire for investment in city property is
the certain indication ot a return of con
fidence, and we hail It as the happy har
binger of immediate prosperity.
Yesterday's sales nt the St. Charles
exchange were such as to Inspire any
one with the thought that the Crescent
city has seen the last ot its dark days.
The rot uida was thronzed with bidders,
and Col. Glrardej opened to a better
audience than be has for many a day.
, Another new party move is reported
irom Washington. This time it is not
an effort to revive the old Whig party,
but a move on the part ot some ot the
Radicals oi the Blaine stripe to keep the
RepuMlean party afloat. 'According to
previous arrangements,'' says the dis
patch, "a Becret meeting was held in
Washington last night for the purpose
of organizing a national party. About
one hundred and 11! ty persons
from different states were present.
Those from tho North expressed
themselves strongly against the
course of tho president aud his cabi
net, alleging that" they retained In
office men who are opposed to the prin
ciples ot the Republican party to the ex
clusion of its tried and true adherents.
Representatives from the south declared
that the president had discarded states
which had elected bim, aud giveu offices
to enemies of the party. Resolutions
were adopted organizing the meeting
into a national joint body. Permanent
officers were elected with power to in
stitute branches throughout the country,
with headquarters at Washington."'
"Joyous vacation moods," said Mr.
Beecher at the Plymouth prayer meeting
the other Sunday, "are a means of grace,
Sot that you are to neglect the sterner
duties even In Summer. But there should
be pauses every Summer In our work for
the year, when we can give ourselves up
to being happy. Some Christians start
for tte couutry with ' Baxter's Saints'
Re6t," "Pilgrim's Progress," and otaer
good books, and declare they are going
to Have a good time having somebtdv
read those to tnem. well, it you tan
get soma one to read them to you It tmy
do. But the Christians who, going into
the country, will do good to themsehes
and others, go with the main purpose of
limply being happy, whether In dan:iiig,
miulc, or la the woods. To we a
man standing among his fellows, who
are running Into the extremes of tempu
tion, bearing with them and restraining
them, showing a joyous lite, and yet
keeping clear as a crystal from anything
mat is uisnonorable or untrue this Is
more poweriul for good than many ser
mons." From allot which it might oe
inferred that the best thing some of us
can do would be to take a vacation the
year 'round. However thut may be, we
trust that some ot those who go on a va
cation Irom Cairo this year will start out
with Beecher's notion that they are to
have some one else read "Baxter's Saints'
Kesl" to them as a means of grace, or
for the purpose of keeping them out of
temptation. That will not do.

A stall' correspondent of the New
York Tribune, under date of May 9th,
writes from Montgomery, Alabama, as
follows, concerning the education ot tho
black people and the free school system
in Alabama : "An opinion exists among
many Republicans at the North thut the
'white man's governmenU' established in
the South are hostile to the tree school
system put lu operation by the Kepubli-
cans, or at least to so much of It as pro
vides for tho cnu.il education ot the
blacks. I am convinced that this is an
error. It certainly if as far as this state
U concerned. There Is a good deal of
opposition to tree schools, but it does
not proceed from tlio intollifent
and idfluentful classes', nnrt Jt lias not af
fected the policy ot the state government.
Interest in education is more gen
eral and the schools are more numer
ous and better sustained than they were
under the so-called Radical administrn
tion. The school land h apportioned
with scrupulous exactness for the benefit
ot the two races. It ought to bo in
creased by lo;al taxation, but the counties
decline to take any steps in this direc
tion. In the cities and large towns
municipal action provides ltimls for
maintaining graded schools for about
eight months in the year. To show how
fairly the colored people are treated in
these places, I will refer to Selma and
Montgomery, in each ol which the two
races are about equally divided I n num
bers. In Sclma there wero enrolled, at
the date of the last report, four hundred
and fifteen white pupils and four hun
dred and ten colored ones. In Mont
gomery the average attendance was three
hundred and sixty-lour In the white
schools, and three hundred and seventy-
ftiffht in the colored schools. From a
Vuittothe colored schools in Selma 1
can certify to their excellent condition.
In the country the white schools are gen
erally superior, owing to the difficulty
everywhere exprituced in procuring
good teachers for the colored children
The stupid and absurd prejudice against
white men and woiueu teaching th no
groes stilt continues, anu trustees are
oltcn obliged to employ colored men who
have themselves scarcely mastered the
rudiments ot education. Country schools
are kept up, as a rule, oulv three or four
months in tho year."
