The Ute Carolina Enterprise and the JBamur, published respectively at Goidaboro and Raleigh, the former by Smith A Mebane aud the latter by J. H.

With this issue we present the Banner-Enterprise in furtherance of the work which we consider essen tial to the material prosperity of the colored race. While we shall en deavor to promote their interests in every honorable pursuit, it shall be our chief desire to impress upon all the dignity, manliness aud reward of honest labor. Our well-being as in. dividuals and as a people depend mainly upon our ability to sustain ourselves. Independence gained by careful uttention to our agricultural and mechanical interests, places us in a condition to achieve success in what' ever undertaking we may pursue. and our brains only can limit its ex- tent. While this is not a partizan journal, we shall keep a watchful ey upon the political issues of the day. giving commendation wheresoever we think it due, and fearles dy condemn' ing error and injustice without re gard to politics or party. With "La bor omnia viicit" inscribed upon its fold, we fling our banner to the breeze. and call on our people throughout the land, to mirch with us to victories. not stained with blood, but those which make music iu the miues, tli furrow and at the force those which fill the air with machinery's busy hum, and "cause the wilderness to blossom as the rose. A XATIOXAL COX'EXTIOX OF COLORED HEX The colored press of the country seem to be much interested iu the proposed convention of representa tive colored men to be held during the 'present year. We understand that one of the prime objects of the convention will be to consult the modus operandi of the political futire of the colored race in this country, But it cannot be reasonably expected that all black men any more than all white men can be mado to think and act alike, though the former to a con siderable extent have so acted since emancipation. It would uaturully appear to the casual observer of past political event that such a convention would bo in dicative of a new departure; hence it will be of great significance to th Republican party ; but should the convention fail to accomplish the very object for which it will b con TeueJ, none need be surprised. If the convention is to be held, and no one can doubt its necessity, we ire in favor of holding it anywhere south of Washington City, in order to eliminate the errors which have so often crept into conventions, of the kind. Let us have it if at all, free from the influence of federal office holders who for the last decade have hold almost unlimited control of all such bodies. Washington is also nearly on one extreme side of the colored popula, tioo of the country, besides it is a notorious fact, that the colored peo pie can not exercise the elective fran chhe by voting in the District, Raleigh would be an excellent place, and the month of November a good time for it. The North Carolina Industrial Association will hold its annual exposition in that month, aad there can be no better time and place than that suggested above We know it will be quite a treat to the hundreds of visitors who never witnessed such a grand affair carried on by colored people. And we veu ture to sar that our people will pre. pare to cire for tin representatives without charge. As to the number of represeuta- tivei, ww would suggest that there be chosen two Hum the State at large, and oue for every twenty thousand and fractional part there!, of the colored voting population in each Statu snd Territory. In our opinion, there can be no more just, and equitable way of get ting a fair representation. TO BU SIX ESS .VEX. The attentiuu of our merchants and business men generally is called to the advantages of this journal as an Advertising medium. Its circulation is large and constantly increasing. It circulates iu more than sixty equities in this State; and also quite largely through V'nginin, South Carolina aad other States. IVp shall be pleased lo Jjavn those desiiing to send in their cards. SECURE HOMES. The impo'tauce of securing a home cannot be emphasized with too much force. The more fully the situ ation of the Negro is realized by hiiu, the more he appreciates the necessity of getting a home. The ownership of a homestead, though it be humble, begets in the possessor, more or less, a feeliug of independence, which prompts the exercise of free thought aud action. One can ill afford to act independently much less be inde pendent when dependent upon an other for food, shelter aud all the ne cessaries of life. The most difficult step towards securing a home is, doubtless, the first step. A little in dividual determination, however, will beget self-confidence, which is the most essential element required to ward making a beginning to obtain a homej Every one desiring to be free and independent, should desire a home, and the way to get a home is to get right down to business work faithfully and steadily. Save every odd dime, live economically. Re solve to have a home at all hazzards. Do not let old age with its atteudant infirmities overtake you and fiud you dependent upon any one for a shelter. Work andrrconomize! OUR TRUE FRIEXDS. In no sphere in life has one a b li ter opportunity of learning the true friends of the negro than that of edit- in" a newspaper in the interests of that race ; because those who show a willingness to and do assist us, cer tainly exhibit so much friendship for our advancement. We have had sev eral years' experience iu this matter, in which time we have been brought in constant contact with almost every condition of men, office -hoidois not excepted. Our experience has been, that this class of our citiz 'us, md especially some of those directly re sponsible to our race for their posi tions, are most Hpt to give us the cold shoulder. Who is our neighbor 't By their works ye shall know them. Of this class we shall take occasion to write in the future. OUR RAILROAD. The Wilmington, Wrightsville k Onslow Railroad is moving on gradu ally, so far as the project has been proscuted, uutil brainy and euergelic men who desire to see all the people of the State prosper will not suffer failure to attend it The eyes of the people everywhere are turned toward it, and though to some extent it may be regarded as an experiment, it must succeed Success achieved iu'this enterprise will stimulate the race iu other soc tious to make like ventures. Its ac complishment will put confidence iu the Negro's constructive ability. Let's all unite upon the rail road and assist in its construction. THE REUUHLICAS PARTY. If the Spring elections recently held in the North aud Northwest are ominous, the fata of tlx; Repub lican party in 1884 is sealed. The Democracy, taking courage from their New York victory of last fail, seems to have pressed the Republican parly to the wall, and a complete Waterloo foj 1884 looks inevitable. At all events, it will take extraordinary efforts on the part of leading Repub licans to patch the breaker. The dikes are getting shaky all along the line, aud are liable to break at any moment. READ THIS. We send copies of this issue of the Banner-Enterprise to some who have not given their subscriptions as yet. We ask such persons te el annuo the paper, and if aftei so doing tney become impressed with the lm portance of the journal we will be glad to have them subscribe. There has boon organized iu the city of Chicago a colony of colored people to take up laud in Dakota Siure the formation of the colony sev eral mouths Hgo, its membership has constantly increased by persoin join ing fiom the State of Illinois and from other States. The Chicago Con tervator says of the movement: "The Dakota Colored Colony leaves on or about (lie nrst of May for said territory, and will locate pcrrua nently ou its soil. This is one of the grandest and most worthy enterprise iug effort, ever inaugurated among our people, ana its outcome cannot fail of success, and will pay its worthy adveuturert. That our peo ple can and must look for success, in becoming owners of the soil cannot long r be a question. To these brave men and women we say go on, suc cess awaits you. Without the solid nero vote iu Ohio, Indiana, New York, Kansas, ivuunigau, lUinnesota, wbat can the Republicans expect to do in 1881? Wathmgton Bee We can answer that question easily enough. Tbey can do what the De mocracy has done foi the lust twenty year. liotton Leader. And what will they do in North Carolina under similar circumstances? EDUCA TIOXAL. Mr. Joseph Cook furnishes the fol lowing important and very interest ing educational statistics as gathered from the reports of Superintendent Walker: 1. Fivemilliousof the 50,000,000 of th? population of the United States over 10 years of age cannot read ; (5,250,000 cannot write. 2. Of the 10,000,000 of voters iu the linked States, one in five cannot write his name. 3. There are 18,000,000 of chil dren: Of these 10,500,000 are en rolled in public and private schools, but the average attendance is only (5,000,000; 7,500,000, or five-twelfths of the whole, growing up in absolute iguoiance of the English alphabet. 4. At the present rate of the in crease of the number of children not attending school, there will be iu ten years more children in the United States out of schools than in them. 5. In all but five of the States there were enough illiterate voters to have reversed the result of the last presidential election in each of these States. C. It is estimated by the statisti cians of the government that the to tal aunual prolit to the couutry by the conversion of illiterate into odu cated labor could not be less than $400,000,000 a year. EDUCATIONAL CONVENTION COLORED AND WHITE MEN MEET BE OS A LEVEL IN THE INTEREST OK EDUCATION. The people of Kentucky seem to be takiug an extraordinary iuterest iu common education, as was evinced by the educational convention held in the llouso of Representatives at Frankfort, on the 5th instant. Tharo they met, white and black, regardless of political affiliation, on a common level and passed resolutions, the eil'eet of which is, that they regard the gen eral diffusion of knowledge as being paramount to all others. Instead of asking the Goneial As sembly to divide the school fund be tween tho two races according to i lie amount of taxes paid by each, as was done in this State ; they pass resjlu lions asking the Legislature to in struct their Senators and members in Cougross to use every honorable effort to secure national aid, and aver that they will not discrimnnti' in the use of tho school funds. Tho following is one of the resolutions passed: Resolved, That it is the sonse of this convention that the friends of popular education should iu tho com ing elections in this State support only known and outspoken friends of good schools for all the children of the Commonwealth. The people of Kentucky are mov ing in the right direction. We in dulge iu the hope, that other South ern States will follow, knowing there can be no p.-i m-uirtit prosperity of our section without the encouraging aud fosiurin universal education. WAKE col' STY EDUCATIONAL MATTERS. There were forty eight applicants for teachers' certificates on Thurs day, Fiiday and Saturday of last week. The superintendent had pre pared printed qui .-lions which were answered in writing. No certificates have as yet been awarded. Of course some of the applicants will fail. Thirty-four have already been granted certificates since January 1st; 3G colored schools have been in oper ation during tho spring and 4(5 white. There lisvo also been 13 col ored and 5 white school houses built since" Jauuary.

A woman left her baby eighteen months old, on the floor of the froRt room playing with its toys and a little terrier dog that is its constant compan ion. The mother was away just three minutes, nut wnen she came hack and opened the door her infant's head, arms and shoulders were hanging beyond the stone sill of an open window, and near it, with its feet on a chair, stood tho lit tle dog, holding on to the childs dress for dear life. Her child, unconscious ok any danger, was crowing at soma object in the yard, while the dog, hold ing oa to the dress, looked u mute up peal for haste and help In an instant she was by her baby's side and the dan ger was passed. When the dog had been relieved of Ins burden be pranced around the mother and child with a do- light that was almost frantic Warvick FACTS CONCERNING TH8 LIFS OF THE LATE VENERABLE PETER COOPER, OF NEW YORK. The gap is almost pathetic left in social reminiscences by a death like Peter Cooper. When he was born iu 1791, tho total population of all the incorporated cities iu America was ouly 135,000, or, the present population of Jersey City or Newark. The population of the United States was four millions, or the number New York State had beforo the rebel lion. When Mr. Cooper was fifty years old the urban population had grown 1,000 per cent; when he was ninety years old it had growu almost 1,000 per ceut. more. Iu short, the Auiericau cities had alone between his birth and death, had advanced from 130,000 to nearly 1,200,000 souls- The population of Brooklyn at Mr. Cooper's birth was not over liOO'souls, and its few bouses were relieved against wiods upon the Heights. The population of New York city when he was born was un der 30,000 and the place stopped at Chambers street, and that year the best parts of New York were sold for speculation by tho Governor for a shilling iiu acre. Washington City had no existence whatever. There was only fourteen States in the Union; Vermont came in tho year Cooper did, Ohio not till he was eleven, Louisiana uot till he was a voter, Calit'ornA-whei: he was iu his sixtieth vear. He waB eisht years old at Washington's death, and lived under every i'resideut. Nnpoleop Bonaparte's niimo was not whispered when l'eter Cooper was born. He was old enough to have been city editor when Fulton started the first steamboat. As he was the first citi - zen of New York in date, when lis died he was probably first in general respect, known as favorably in the streets, ou the rocks ot Central I ark aud in the high tenenieut houses of Krp's l!.iv as in hotels and banks. No man will steal his body nor cl lenge his philosophy of life. Yet, being dead, tlis baby born yesterday outweighs him. The Mystkry of Lincoln's Tomh. There is a mystery surrounding the tomb of Abraham Lincoln. Several years ago an attempt was made b) iiiave robbers to steal the body. Elmer Washburn was chief of the secret service at the time. Ho put men on guard for three weeks, and ono dark night, by tho aid of a bull's eyo lantern, the thieves were caught in the very act of violating tho grave. Tho attempt made a great sensation. Tho grave is not guarded, so far as any human eye can see, yet is pro tected. Secretary Lincolu said the other day that he was absolutely cer tain that the remains of his father could never be stolen After the first attempt, sure means of protection were employed. The secret of this security is only known to three peo ple. When the friends of tho late President Garfield think the guard over his tonib has been maintained long enough, Col. Rockwell will be entrusted with the protection oi tne tomb of Abraham Lincoln. Uhictnjo Herald. "May I Kiss That Baby?" To a soldier, far away from home, there is no more touching: sight than that of a baby iu its mother's anus. While ou their way to (iettysburg our troops were marching by night through a vil lage over whoso gateways hung lighted anterns, while young girls shed tears as they watched the brothers of other women marched on to poibie death, A scene of the nmrch is thus described by the author of "Mullet and Shell."

On the road once more, with Lebanon fading away in the distance, the fat pas senger drumming idly on the window pane, the cross passenger sound asleep and the tall, thin passenger reading 'Gen. Grant's Tour Around the World, and wondering why 'Green's August Flower' should be printed above the doors of a 'A Buddhist temple at lSenares.' To mo comes the brakeinan, and seating himself on the arm of the seat, says: 1 went to cliuich yesterday.' 'Yes?' 1 said, with that interested in ftecton that asks for more. 'And what church did You attend?' Which ito you gue.-s?' he asked. 'Soiro union ruissiou church ?' 1 li anted. 'Now.' he said, '1 don't liko to run on these branch roads very liiuoti. 1 don't often go to church, and when I do, I want to run on the main line, where your run is regular and you go on schedule time, and don't have to wait on connections.

'.Narrow gauge, eh?' said the brake man, 'pretty track, straight as a rule tunnel right thraigh a mountain rather than go around it ; spirit-ievel grad passengers have to show their ticket before thev tot on the train. Mighty strict road but the cars arc a little liar row : have to sit one in a seat and no room in the aisle to dance.
