Referring in yesterday's issue to tin case of IMuiu Levi as giving illustration of the kiiullv, often afleetimiale. relation that existed between master and slave we thought the surest. on uiilit be ear ried farther to show that the mutual Knod tcclim proved to exist in those re lations, was not without itsjlastinj in tin tnee in shaping the course ot lile of tlu slave, of Ireednian, made dependent upoi his own character and exertions. Tin old slave inn v not alwavs have beeomi the lettered or prominent man of his peo ple; but he has proved the most prudent. provident, industrious, and therefore tin more contented one. And it is a ecrtah fact that the old slave has been kit less conspicuous in criminal annah than the generation born in freedom coming to manhood, and in all thing." his own master. In relation to these people, we makt two extracts which will be read will some interest. The first is from tin News and Courier of the LMilh: Itctween these "old faindv servants' and their old owners the kindest relations still exist. The bond between them i nearly the only bond that is left bet wee the two races, and when it too is (i: solved, as it wdl be dissolved in a tew more years, the separation of the whiles and blacks will be complete ami uual The old iamily servants have played ai important part in the history of th South during the past twentv-tive vears, and we mav well be thanklul that lhe did not "disappear" with slaverv, but remained to sullen the asperities ot political simple in which they them selves, sadly enough, have been amoii the greatest suilerers. 1 he oilier is troni the aslnnirton cor respondence of the Daltimore Sun; It is a mailer ol everv-dav common remark here that the best classes ot tin colored people in every respect are to hi found aiiHMiM those who lived in tin davs of slaverv. These are almost with out exception jood ciliens, wiio respect ineiiiselvcs and respect others, and com maud the regard and eonlidence of tin community. 1 he two colored actors in the triple trayedv here last week wen both under tweutv-onc vears of areata perhaps nine-lent lis of the despeiadoes and toughs or thai race have not at tained manhood. The police ot Wash in'ton have a most trying time witl these desperadoes. In making airi,sl thev run constant risk of the most serious bodilv injury, as violent resistance is the rule among those who regard them selves as heroes, and who are fast coin inu to be looked upon as such bv their own people. The colored population ol ashingion is constantly on the crease, tor here in one way and anothei there seems to be no inconsistency in tlu full supply of bodily comlortsandchronic idleness. In the meanw hile the old-time splendid plnuiniions of Maryland and Yirginia contiguous to Washington art rapidly becoming wilderness for want oi adequate labor. If the republican sena tors would let the South alone tor while and devote their attention for a season to the elavnlion and improve ment ot the negro in ihccommunity right under their eyes they might perhaps not hope tor so much political advantage but thev would at least show some in dieaiiou of being true to their profes sions. Senator Blair, who is never happy tin less lie finds something in which to inter meddle, is busying himself with the rights or the wrongs ot the blacks in the South and in a recent speech at Washington re minded his colored audience that their race was so numerous in this country that their rights could not be denied them if they demanded them. It might strike the most indifferent observer that the District ot Columbia is an unfortun ate field upon w hich to hoist the banner of negro rights and negro wrongs with view of encouragement or example to the negroes elsewhere ; for it wts in the Dis trict that the sincerity and consistency of leading republicans Kdmunds, Morrill, Sherman, perhaps lilair himself, had am pie test, resulting in the exposure of allot them as blatant hypocrites. These men forceti negro suffrage upon the South and also established it in the District ot Columbia, the Mecca of the freed man. The District became crowded with ne groes, uud they exercised all their new rights and privileges with an abandon that would have been amusing if it had uot been hurtful. These thiee senators, above named, perhaps also Mr. Blair himself, were large projKTty holders in the District ; and like property holders elsewhere, notably here in the South, they rebelled against the power and the license enjoyed by this large body of non taxpayers to levy contribution ad libitum upon those who did have property. These senators iiad a ready relief not possessed by the Southern people; and they applied it promptly and remorse lessly by dcpiivin.7 the jK-oplt of the Dis-, trict, white and black alike, punishing! the innocent as well as the guilty, of the right of suffrage. And they would never renew the grant. They have seen with their own eyes and lelt through their own pockets what means an irresponsl ble suffrage. Mr. Blair and his confreres might go farther in profiting by the experience drawn from observation in Washington City. The grievances they complain of as inflicted upon the negroes of the South generally are not unlike tnose they have witnessed daily in Washington, for some of wnicnthey found the summary remedy by deprivation of suffrage. Some of tbem have defied all remedies, and would prore to them the unmanageable problem pres ent on the much larger area of the whole South, if the solution of it besought by the nostrums in vogue among republican i politicians. What solution has been reached may be learned by the following j extract from a Washington letter in the i Baltimore Sun of November 11. Shak ing of the affairs of the District, the writer savs: Conuress for vear after vear succeeding the war made the most lavish appropria tions tor the benefit of the race. Common hool facilities have been oiiened lothetn without stint. Thovenjov perfect equality f civil rights. All atenues of employ ment, public and private, are tree to them. Under such auspices the happiest results might reasonably have, been an ticipated. The criminal statistics show whether thev have heen reah.ed. i he colored population ot the District is ibout one-third of the whole, while it furnishes from oO to 70 per cent, of the criminals. Of nineteen cases of murderin he last vear the principals in fourteen were colored. Arrests for earn ing con tra let. weapons disclose a proportion of three colored to one white, and in eases f petit larceny and sneak-thieving this proportion is maintained. What is more rplexing in this unhappy disclosure is the fact that an overwhelming percent - ige ol the criminal otlenses among the .olored people are committed by the voting by those born after the war, w h never stood under the shadow of slavery . ind who have had equal advantages ot every character with the white youth so far as public provision isconeernetl. Tin solution of all this opens the widest field tor inquiry and argument. Referring again to Mr. Blair's speech. we rind in one of his remarks he suggest what might proven dangerous boomer- ing to his party. lie reminds the 'roes that in four of the Northern States they hold the balance of power, and might exercise it to force the South to ;rant alleged denied rights to their brethren. Mr. Blair assumes very com placently that this power is to be exer cised as a matter of course in co-oiera-tion with the republican party. But .n reminding the negroes of the north of their power, he unwit tingly reminds them that they too nave wrongs to redress and rights to as sert; that they too have been denied of ices and honors and privileges to a tar greater degree than their brethren of the South, and that their aspirations can never rise higher than that of the loyal pariv voter, obediently submissive to the rdcrs of his party. Perhaps some ot rhese days Mr. Blair may find tiiis bal tnee of power applied w here it is most unexpected and undesirable. Those so called senii-barbaious people .if latin origin in Mexico and South Vmeriea exhibit vastly more practical common sense than li e assumedly wiser and progressive people of the United Slates in dealing withquestions growing out of the negro problem. We rush pell mcll, heller skeiter into all sorts of ven turesome experiments, hurried along o wild tide of blind philanthropy or uncal ctdating sectional hatred. These latins take a sensible view of a race, if, is our northern friends, say intrin sically the equal of the white man, yet with probation too short to qualify him to take part in the affairs of government ; and so Brazil has attached an educational qualification to the suffrage to the extent of a knowl edge of reading and writing, so that the newly emancipated slave should not be able by his vote to neutralize that ol' one who knows with what purpose his vote is cast. Heie we permit Sambo, without the knowledge of a letter, or conception of a priniiple, cast his vote to cancel the act of a Pnuiel Webster or a John C. Calhoun. Mexico, desirous of immigration, and liberal and generous in the proffers of lauds and privileges, is yet too wise to ojien the floodgates to an unchecked torrent of ignorant discon tented negroes in search of the im portance and the distinctions they could never attain at home; and so the government has limited the nunilKT of immigrants of that race to be spread over a nrriod often years; condi tional also upon the good moral char acter and industrious habits of the im migrants. In this action both Brazil and Mexico display wise caution, a char acteristic totally wanting in the states men of the north, who would ad vance the negro to the highest position, provided always that he exercise all his rights and immunities at the South.

The extensive and disastrous fire at L,ynn, .Mnssucuusetts, is another rf those great calamities for which, bv fire and Hood, the vear of our Lord eighteen hundred and eighty-nine las acquired a memorable distinction. And the fire Lynn conies home to us in a more per sonal way than any that has preceded it for almost everyone in the country, man woman and child, wears shoes made in Lynn. Long time ago with that happy- sagacity the New Unglander has to turn location and conditions to advantage, and also to avail himself of certain local personal instincts and aptitudes, the place become devoted to the business of shoe making. Voung and old, male and female, stuck to the last: and in the olden time nearlv every house in the place was a shoe shop. The excellence of the work and the abundance of the out put found demand all over the country. Hand work gave place largely to ma. chine work upon its general adoption ; and probably at the time of the recent fire no place ill the world held as high a rank as the seat of shoe manufacture as Lynn. It was the specialty of the place, the foundation of all its fortunes. The population had probably reached fifty thousand, and it must have been a pros perous and wealthy place to have been subjected to a loss counted by millions. Syrup of Flffa.
