JUSTICE.
With reference to the paragraph o
our editorial upon the lien lav* which ii
reviewed over the above signature ii
the Spirit of thc Times t we would say
That thc word 4'merchant," (which h<
uukindly misquotes in the plural,) wa:
intended to include those whose op
pressive extortions have been.alluded te
by other papers and used as an argu?
ment against the lit o system. We sup?
pose that thc nun)ber is few, and noth?
ing was farther from our iutcntiou than
to question the dealing of a class of mee
whose standard of honesty is as 'nigh ai
any other. We ore satisfied that but
few of our readers could have miscon?
strued our language, as the latter sen?
tence of thc paragraph implies an em?
phatic denial of the application;, which
"Justice" (?) would lane us make.
Thc adverse spirit which he evinces
in his inferences and comments upon
sentiments he icoidd ?iave us express,
inclines us to the opinion that the com?
munication was not prompted by those
motives which are usually denned by
his norn de j?lame. We would regret
the wording of the whole paragraph
did the thought not suggest itself to our
mind that a faultless diction would
avoid the necessity of occasional com?
munications, critical and expository,
which add so much to thc worth and
popularity of a newspaper.
SOCIAITEQUAL?TY.
The Kel? Era, a paper published an??
edited by colored meu of Charleston, in
its issue of the Cth inst., takes a sen?
sible view of the social status of the
negro, and makes some good suggestions
with reference to tue way in which it
may bo elevated.
Nothing has caused more chagrin
to the abolitionist of the North, than
his failure to elevate the negro to a
position of social equality with the
white man. The best blood of both
North and South was spilled to
make him free; hundreds of Yankee
school-marms and reverend gentlemen
have immolated themselves upon thc
altar of social censure to improve his
intellectual and moral faculties ; and
congressional enactments have exhaust?
ed their power in behalf of his social
advancement. But after fifteen years,
the cb#nge has been scarcely percepti?
ble. The more intelligent among col?
ored men Lave been attentive observers
of these things, and strongly impregna?
ted with thc erroneous conception that
"all men are born free and equal," their
pride has been bitterly galled by their
social ostracism. They are beginning,
however, to realize the fact that iheir
inferiority is not occasioned by ideas
which arc based upon pride or preju?
dice alone, that the intellectual differ?
ences between the races are not artifi?
cial or imaginary distinctions, but are
as marked and real as those which God
has stamped upon their physical ap?
pearance.
Development of intellect is the
characteristic feature which measures
the superiority, of nations, and history
and observation will show how wide
is the difference between thc white
man and ne;rro. The Huronean has
lifted himself from barbarism by force
of iote?lectand industry alone. Through .
centuries of patient and painful labor lie
has advanced through the various stages ?
of civilization co the highest phase of
social enlightenment. In this march
through centuries he has not only de?
veloped the various branches of knowl?
edge incident to his high state of civili?
zation; but he lias transmitted his men?
tal activity (increased by exercise,
through successive generations.) fron;
sire to son, until hi- intellectual vigor
surpasses that of any other race upon
the globe
While the European has thus been
improving his social and intellectual
condition, his African brother tins
stood stock still. I alia biting a coun?
try surpassed by none in wealth of
mineral, agricultural a*.d mechanical
' resources, he has contented himself to
remain in ignorance, and to dav the
sun is shining upon square miles of
heads as thick and empty as those which
harried his rays in the days of Hum. It j
is not surprising, therefore, that a race
whose only progress towards civilization
has been made by contact with thc white?
man ia the relation of slave, should not
risc at a bound, to be his. social equal.
The colored race must recognize ami
acknowledge its inferiority, and go dil?
igently to work to improve its oppor?
tunities. If, after centuries of labor, it
manifests qualifications of mind and
morals which are equal to those of its
European brother, thc difference of
caste will unavoidably disappear, and
differences of "race, color or previous
condition," will be forgotten ; but not
until then can they hope to meet on a
ground of social equality.

Notes by the Way.

M OM:: KA i..
As we vere gliding down On turi
in the ooo] of thc a Ile!.noon, we wer
silling in the rear of toe steamet
. puffing a cigar. On our left lue shore
were io full sie'ht. and now and thei
f a train of ears could be seen dash in;
s by. The lolling hills on one sitie
) the cain? and peaceful wafers on th*
: other, with the sweet and quiet sk;
- above, made ibo surroundings a
5 pleasant as heart could wish.
Just at this juncture, wc were join
> ; ed by a gentleman who had manifest
. ly run away from the other end of lin
. boat in order to take a smoke. Il<
. was a stranger, but we soon struct
up an acquaintance which proved t<
1 be very pleasant. True to his naliv<
> instinct, he first began by ascertain
' iug who we were and where we cann
. from. "Oh ! a Baptist [?reacher fron
? South Carolina ? Why, Mrs. Fitch is ?
Baptist. Let me go after her.'* In c
; few moments he returned, bringing
Isis wile, and then for some hours tu
? assailed tiie aforesaid Baptist preach
er willi questions about thc South ;
1 for example, such questions as these :
".Vre negroes butchered down South
: like beeves ? Did South Carolina
go Democratic by the use of tissue
ballots ? Do the Radicals much out?
number the Democrats? Are negroes
angels or demons ? Are the}* honest,
truthful, pious?" Thus we were be
i sieg'.'d, and that, loo, for hours.
We answered every query as truly
and "fully as we could, and when we
parted we were both convinced that
the best people of the North are Re?
publicans, and of the S< nth Demo?
crats. To the Nor!her.! Republicans,
, nothing is more abhorrent and repul
: sive than to have to entertain the
idea of allowing tito Democrats to
come into power. They conceive o?
. them as a rabble, without moral or
pecuniary inljuenee. Where the Dem?
ocrats of the North own one dollar,
j ibo Republicans own niue. Now in
the South tiie facts arc just the rc
' verse, and, if the idle vagary can be
. entertained, it does seem that there
can never be a reconciliation of our
political troubles until there can be a
fusion of these two groat parties, al?
lowing Northern Democrats and
Southern Republicans to look out for
themselves. Tins is the random opin?
ion of au unsophisticated preacher
who knows no more about politics
; than about the North-pole.
To return to our story. The Lach
inc Rapids were passed in safety. The
river then spread.out into a lake two
miles wide. Ahcv.d of us and on our
left lay the city of Montreal, tho
: metropolis of the Dominion of Canada,
situated on au island formed by tho
Ottawa and St, Lawrence Rivers,
? right at the base of a beautiful cmi
: nonce known as Mount Royal. Its
'. population is 100,000. The river be?
low Montreal used to be very sfiallow
. and rocky, not admitting vessels of
more than three hundred tons, and
thc foreign trade was carried on bv
small brigs and barques. But mod?
ern industry and enterprise have
; opened up the way, and at the dock
we saw vessels fi um all parts of the
world, carrying as much as four
thousand tons.
At the instance cd" Mr. Fitch afore
named, we had a free ride over the
city and visited many {/laces of inter?
est Bonsecours Market is a model.
It is three stories high, of immense
length, and so arranged that each de?
partment of meals, vegetables &c., is
cut olf to itself. Near by is Bonse?
cours Catholic Cathedral. It is a
massive building, hoary with agi;
bavin sr been built in 105G. lt is still
O
used as a place of worship. Over
the main entrance thc same inscrip?
tion iias been standing for 2:25 years:
"Si vou.<acez V avion r 'le Marie dans
ion eveur, fCouo^e dirt cn payant un
AO?"-If you have tue love of Mary
in-vour he:?rt, do not foriret to suv a
prayer in passing.
Going on a lillie further, we came
io au? ?thor Cal h ed J al, the St. James.
Over a side entrance, we saw a sign
board in Fi euch, "Venez voir la

we went in, pa vi ny; a toll often cents.

Mr. Creer also made some fine plays. His
: baning and catching were both inimitable.
Messrs. Weinberg. Flayer, Baker and Shaw
did capitally, the hitler making the great
i "catch" of the match. The whole nine did
admirably, and sustained the reputation the
. club had won in former seasons.
Cood playing w;is also made by Captain
. Foti?, and Messrs. Frierson, Bhame. McLeod
; and Xruluck of the Farmer Boys. They de
: served a better showing but they had to deal
: with veterans, who had never yet furled their

It is proper to say that the Lynchburgcrs
laoored undcrgreat disadvantage. They had
conte across the country in open conveyances
? this terrible August day, and il was not to
; be expected that their nerves and muscles
could be.in:proper trim to sustain ihc addi?
tional fatigue of a four hours match. Another
comest may change the record, and Botts, as
. usual, prove too much for the Beans.
1 can not close without expressing the uni?
versal approval of both participants andspec
tators of the promptness and impartiality of
the umpire, Mr. W. J. Bud di ti of Lynchburg,
: who discharged the difficult and laborious
duties of his position, to perfection.
The M ay es vii le boys avow that they never
. wantan umpire that does not hold "his um?
brella under his arm the whole time of the
! game ; they attribute much of Mr. B's hard
headedness lu the peculiarity in his deport?
ment.
A movement of thc crowd brings us to the
' grounds marked out for the shooting.
As the shadows are lingering, no time is
; lost in preliminaries-the trap is set, and Cap
. tain Robert C. Witherspoon takes his posi?
tion, the word is given-the ball rises-a
. flash and the ball Hies into a thousand pieces.
Judge Carroll comes nexi-another b'til-a
quick explosiou and his ball flies loo, into a
convenient fence corner. Messrs. Wm. Coop- .
er. Barnett, and F. Cooper take iheir turns
and their halls are returned uninjured to the
' box; Mr. Fiowdeu is more successful, breaks
his ball, and gives way to Dr. Hudson-alas 1
. estick shot a he is-'"the trap is too promiscu?
ous'"'-and a miss is scored, against a man, j
whose natue is a terror in all partridge land ! ;
The second round gives Capt. Witherspoon
another score and allows Mr Barnett and;
Dr. Hudson to retrieve somewhat of their !
fallen rep ut liions.
And so with varying fortunes, the match :
goes on, until ?be approaching clarkes? puts a
'? stott to the sport, leaving Capt. Witherspoon ^
the victor, he having only missed one ball in ?
: six, Dr. Hudson making a good second, niiss
1 i tig two ia the same number of shots. '
j Although there was scarcely light tb sec
the balls, some of the more enthusiastic
. sportsmen lingered to try double shots, result- ;
, iug as before in favor of Dipt. Witherspoon,
who made two double shots, bringing down
i a ball with each barrel, both rounds.
This places Capt. Witherspoon as the '
champion shot of .Salem, and as he is now ?
\ seeking oilier worlds lo conquer, 1 am re- -
quested to ask that you will send the address?
es of Capt. Travis, and Dr. Carver to him. ot?
to your correspondent, at your earliest con- .
venience. ;
Judge Carroll's many friends hoped to see .
him make a better record, but like the rest ut
us; he has his trials, and a legal tilt, he bad
experienced that morning with one; of your ,

"To heard the lion in Iiis den.

had no doubt si fleeted his nerves, hut some j
other day. he hopes tu contest Captain With- !
c-rspoon's claims to the belt. j
Thus ended il:*; very pleasant afiernoon as j
far as we oldsters were concerned, but one of :
the hospitable citizens of the town threw open :
his doors to the young people, many of whom
no doubt, look a hand in that old fashioned '
game where hearts are pitched and batted,
fouled and caught upon the fly ; and in which '
