The Senatorial lie Mblicap caucus
Leld oo Saturday uiiFB seemed to re
Bult only in on agree Hnt not to agree
as to the policy of tlie 'Administration
in making appointments. It is said on
as good authority as any that each Re
publican Senator will make objeotion to
the confirmation of such appointees as
be chooses, but that thero was no agree
ment among Senators to support each
other. From this it would seem that
all of them rocognize the necessity for
interfering with some of the notioos of
Mr. Hayes, but that a majority are ei
ther afraid to make an open quarrel, or
wish to postpone it.
While this uncertainly exists as to
confirming appointments; there is no
less coufusion and wavering es to an
acreeuieat oo the other distinguished
features of Mr. Hayes' course the
Southern policy. There M?y not be an
open rupture an either subject at pres
ent, as the caucus seems to have shown
a disposition ou the part of a major, v
of the Senators to give Hayes a ohp.nce
to come back .to his jwvey p.llegiance.
The irreconciluhles are understood to
jave been very few. ,
There is a clear u.'i jorily of Senators
in favor or the bill which passed the
House remonctizing silver, lut it is
now evident that final action will be
postponed uutil the regular session.
This means until Jauunry, i i least, as
the holiday adjournment will come
early this year. Looking astlio work
Congress came here in Extra Sestion
to do. and at what progress it has mnde.
one is inclined to doubt the policy of
holding extra sessious.

Texas IuhV purchased fourteen huu
dred acres of land near Austin aa the
site of a state 'university for colored
youth. ' This rather oontradiots the in
dustriously-oiroulated Republican idea
thai the Soulbcro whites are unwilling
to give the blacks suitable advantages
oi educatiou. The whites are sensible
enough to know that ignoraooe ia the
most dangerous dementia any com
munity, and thai as the colored people
are urooug them, and likely to remain
with them, public safety, if no higher
consideration,' demands that the proper
facilities for the acquisition of knowl
edge he provided. ' (
Wo should have been bettor pleased,
however, to have had a thoroughly
good, common school than the pro
posed university. The country seems
to lave run mad in regard to what is
called "higher ed ucation." Now high
er education, even when all that the
name implies, is a useless, luxury for
the great mass of mankind, while low
er education is an imperative necessity.
With the fundamental branches firmly

he does not choose he has enough to

ey is wasted in trying to give a univer
sity culture to those who do not appre
ciate it or are incapable of receiving
it. Probably in all Texns there are not
a hundred colored youths who have
the desire or ability to go through a
uuiversity course creditably; whereas
there are probably in all Texas not a
hundred who lmvo not tho desire and
the: ability to master a com Jion sohoc
course. It the state authorities are
wise they will abandon the university
