unquestionably have a fresh saint

zation the modest Mr. ' Revels
seems to bo already paving the
way. it ii a great pity, for the
soke of his race, that this colored
Senator should not, for a while at
leant, have contented himself with
occupying the position of a ears
er, before the public, rather than
to bo aspiring, as he is now, to be
a tender and especially as his
leadership is so much la the wrong
direction, ills aim should be to
conciliate fuvor rather than to ex
cito dislike. His race, in and
through him, he must remember,
is on trial, and mch speeches as
that from which we have quoted
above are not calculated to win
cither him or them favor.
It was one of the complaints of
the late air. Lincoln, that the Rad
ical leaders of his time were com
pelling him, whether or no, to
"run the churches." Lincoln did
not relish tbe job and to do his
memory justice, he always did his
best to shirk and evade it Why
cannot these professed admirers
of the ex-President learn a lesson
from him, and stop trying to "run
the churches?"

Third Judicial District, composed
of the counties of Tunica, Coa
homa, Bolivar, Washington, Issa
quena and Warren, of which B. F.
Trimble, Esq., was Judge. The
district is dismembered, and now
Warren with Hinds, constitutes a
judicial district to which Jadge
Brown has been appointed. We
do not know that he has, but if he
has qualified, he certainly relieves
Judge Trimble from the exercise
of any duty In hla district so far
as it relates to the county of War
ren. The law which made him
Judge of Warren Circuit Court,
also, and is still operative. He is
yet Judge of tbe Circuit Court in
tho other counties, and we pre

any one of them, Just at this time
It would be his duty to attend and

new 1 countries and colonies
advance so rapidly in wealth.-' At
a very- low estimate, the" expense
or rearing a child can not be less
than fifty dollars a year for the
first ten years of Its life, even
among the poorer classes. Among
the rich, or even those la moder
ately comfortable, circumstances,
it is, of course, far greater, and the
average In this country is prob.
ably not less than sixty dollars a
year. At this rate,: without even
counting those who never arrive
at their teens, the expense of
bringing up child to its tenth
year, would be about six. hundred
dollars.. For lbs next five years
the cost is probably still larger;
so that it is not unreasonable to
estimate that each child arriving
at the age of fifteen, has caused
its parents an expense not far
short of a thousand dollars. , !
This expense has, been incurred
for food eaten, for clothes worn,
for home and shelter, and similar,
things. Whatever the child has
consumed, enjoyed or destroyed,
was so much wealth produced by
lubor, and consumed without add
ing one particle to the production
of the country. . Until its fifteenth
or sixteenth year every child la a
consumer without being a. pro
ducer. The nation, as a whole,
has to produce each year products
of the value of sixty or seventy
dollars for every child' nnder fif
teen yeare of age. For every
hundred thousand children, the
nation at Urge haa to produce an-,
nuallv products of the value of
