We publish an article elsewhere, titkcii trom the Baltimore Sun, touehinj; a for mer relation between white and black, between master and slave, the force ol which those whose memory extends not very far back into the past will readily admit. The Kt'nvrations of master and slave, of owner anil chattel, if you please, are rapidly passing awav ; and when they arc ijone, then will have passed away a relation between the bond and the free that has never had its parallel. The su ieiiority of the master was admitted with unquestioning reverence; the inferi ority of the slave was acknowledged with humble delerence. Yet across this great chasm in human conditions then was laid at innumerable points the bridge of allection and sympathy which bronchi the two widely separated relations very nearly together. With the memory so many of us retain of the tender affection id' our old nurses and maumas, of the paternal care and interest of the old "uncles" of the household or plantation, ol' the unfettered companionship of tin boys who played, fished or hunted with us, it is lalsc to sentiment and false to lad to present, as do the enemies slavery, the institution of slavery as oneol bondage unrelieved by kindness, of cr city unsolicited lv huuiauilv, ol toil uu requited by eomiensation, of interest uu mingled with allection. Slavery had it harsh features, terribly harsh sometime No human condition is free from them Hut we venture the assertion, that so f; as physical welfare and Happiness wer concerned, there never was a people on earth so blessed as the African slave The bright redeeming feature was th the master, recognizing his superiority ami also his responsibility, was access! ble to emotions of tenderness as well the promptings of interest, and knowin also me iicptn and wiiltli ol the harrier: between the races, could safely permit relaxation in the guards against undue familiarities which no oilier people dale permit to inferiors. Mumble gratitude devoted allection, unflinching lidclil were the grateful reward of the superior The inferior had his reward in the return of allection, in the recognition of fidelity in he generous liberality of his master The old owner anil the old negro : passing awav ; anil tne ties that once bound together the while and the blacl are broken toreer. Humanity loses bv it. ( hie of the most amiable and liiima i.nig lorms id government is the patn archal. 1 hat was the essential teature of Southern slavery. The patriarch nt lunger exists ; the household of depend cuts is broken up and dispersed. An there never will be a reuniting. As the new generations come on, the young ol the white race will have noncot the mem ories or experiences of the amiable char acteristics of the negro race: while the young of the race growing upunderaliei teachings, their minds embittered, nat nraliy enough, with the knowledge ol the long servitude of their progenitors their modes and hopes of lite changed by the acquirement of the elements of educa tion, their ambition inflamed by their presumed rights, social and political, their envy awakened by the prosjierity and supremacy of the whiles, will grow up an antagonistic, separate and Unas similable people, that ominous Sieetaclc of two races occupying the same terri tory, the antipodes in color, in thoughts and in habits. This is the direct result of impatience ot results, tne endeavor to lilt a race, no matter what its color, at once from a slate of servitude tothe level of one which had acquired its supremacy by long and patient toil and training; or more wick edly still, to use that lately servile and un qualified race as instruments of political and partisan measures, and thrust them blindfold into the sacred mysteries of the temple of lilierty, to bring everything within it to ruin and desolation. A problem is before the country too momentous to be left to work out its un aided solution. But where is the wisdom to work it out judiciously and jieacetullv? WHICH SHALL IT HK? There are three perhaps only two-- competitors in the field for the great World's Fair of lHOU Washington, New York and Chicago. The first is ready to take it, if it fall in her mouth, a ripe pear and all expenses paid ; the second wants it, and makes a show ol working for it and preparing for it, but with a half hearted earnestness, illustrated by I'ulitz er's ofler to Ire one of twenlv-five to sub- scrilie $100,000 each; a proposition which carries more of brag or bluff than business in it ; for while millionaires are plenty in Sew York, few millionaires are ready or willing to plank out in one block so large an amount for show or sentiment. Chicago is in earnest, is united in purpose and counsel; she will get the great show if hard work will bring it to her. Our first choice was Washington City. As a matter of sentiment it is so now. It is the most magnificent city on the continent, the best planned, the best built, with the widest and smoothest streets, with the grandest public build ings, with the most striking monuments. It is a city that the people are proud of; it it a city to invite the world to see and admire, and it is a city that the greatest power on toe western hemisphere should take the opportunity to show as among the treasures that have been brought to light, the direct result of the research of the great discoverer whose work is so conspicuously commemorated ; and also the unparalleled illustration of the tri umps of the theory and practice of a sys tem of government unknown to the age of Columbus. But to have the Exposition at Wash ington, it may be accepted as a foregone conclusion that the government must bear the expense. That is the way in Washington. Everybody dips into the public treasury ; few go down into their own pockets. I'nder the circumstances, and with the I'uited States, on so grand an occasion, the host of all the rest of the world, we would have no objection to such public exiK'tidilure. It is a more appropriate, if not so popular, a way of reducing the surplus than that adopted by Corporal Tanner. But as in the con duct of the Exposition many private and corporate interests are to be sub served, a not unreasonable claim will lie made that the cost be divided. Washington has space which no other city can obtain at the same cost. She has water as deep as that at New York, though farther from the sea, to bring the ships laden with the Exposition displays up to her wharves. She has the best fa cilities for travel and transportation to every part of the country; but confess edly she has not the same ampitudc of accommodation, at present, for the num erous visitors sure to attend. Our people have selected New York, as a matter of course, as combining every idvnntage, external and internal, to make it the fittest place for the exhibi 'ion. We will not say nay if New York prepares for it and holds it. It dce,lils upon the peopleof that city altogether. Chicago is making earnest and sub stantial efforts, and not without solid reasons. The most apparent objection is its distance from the sea and the attend ant difficulties of transporting toil the heavy articles of foreign exhibit. Other wise the claims of Chicago are strong. She lies on a great inland sea, and con trols the comnicn'e of many thousand miles of coast. She has by far the most .xtetisive system of interior eommuniea uou in the world. And she is now near the centre of population in the I'nited States, herself with a population of nearly one million, a great ehv indeed, mil with facilities to Iced and house the unnuuiliered thousands who will throng to the Exposition. We weil remember in our school boy lays when our teacher. I he learned Or. loseph 0. Cogswell, vho was fond of giving his geography recitations living illustrations. called attention to the mar vellous rapidity with which Chicago had iniwn. It was only a tew years after the Black Hawk war. Minnesota, Wis consin, Iowa were all in the great undi vided northwest territory. I'pper Mi nois was on the frontier. Fort Oear honi was a strong military uutport. A very few years had passed when Fort liearboru was transformed mtoChicago; .mil it was to that new town with its population of tj.lMMI to whose magic ;rowth lr. Cogswell called the attention f liis class. And if Chicago succeeds in winning the ibjectofthe rivalship, she will very cer tainly have deserved the honor, anil will very worthily wear it. A STRAMJK OMISSION. In speaking ol the progress of the .erior towns of the Stale in a recent me, we hud that we have omitted the me of all others with claim to the most rapid growth, and with prospect of great luture enlargement. It is playing Ham let, with Hamlet left out. We suppose we unit ted I Hirham from the very familiarity )l the subject; it did not occur because it cipiircd no effort ol suggestion, but might have presented itself sponta neously. We have known Durham lone Ijefore it had a name; passed it many a time on the dirt road when the present site was mm ked by a simply country cross roads store; passed it after the railroad w as built when it was no more than a station for Chapel Hill; remem ber it when its name was first associated with the excellence of its modest output if a very surjcrior smoking tobacco; were witness to the growing repute of that tobacco, saw it spread into national ime, and then saw the foundations of the greatness of Durham securely laid mil built upon, until from them we have seen arise the town which m?v distance ill coimieiiiion. Tobacco, and the to-1 iceo trade, was the corner stone; it was for a long time the chief material in he structure. But to this have been ad led so many other industries, as to di ide interest with the other. In the place if one railroad, there are four, giving the place prominence as a railroad centre lo these will lie added others in the course of time, adding to business, ad ding to population, and justifying the lie- lie! that Durham will be a leading com petitor in the race for the for-emost place I etwecn our interior towns.
