would ever have led to wholesale inter-
marriage with negroes, the Republican
party should-never have received any,
countenance or support from this jour-
nal. We owe it to ourselves and to
posterity to say that the tl.ng has ta-
ken us by surprise. It never entered
our head. We now see and confess
*our error and depore it. ,-"
The question which now naturally
suggests itself to every right-minded
white man and woman is, where is this
"tiing to end Whither are we tend-:
ing? What is to be done to stop this
unnatural and detestable movement.
For it is as plain as a pike-staff that if
it continues there will be soon no
whites left in this once great and pros-
perous country. We shall all be mu.-
lattoes,. and be afflicted with all' the
peculiarities, both mental and physical,
of that unhappy race. The sigps of
this great and terrible change already
begin to make themselves manifest our
streets; f 'or the most careless observer
who walks down Broadway can hardly
fail tQohobsrve the appearance on 4
vast number of faces of the well known
brownish tinge. Let that tinge once
bepbme general, and then farewell, a
long farewell, to all our whiteness.
There is but one quarter-and we
are not ashamed toown it-in which,
in "our pi-nion;"wd -can -16k for either
help or comfort attlhiscrisis, and that
is to the great, old, truly national Dem-
ocratic party. It Juis its faults; no-
body has been forced to call attention
to them oftener than -we; but' it has
never yet proved-falso to-its race, and
we are satisfied that whatever can 'be
done now will be done by it to preserve
the-purity of pur blood.:
We further said;
This state of affairs should teach us
an important lesson. These people
are in earnest, and the whole will fi-
nally submit to,-and join hand and
heart to enforce Lincoln's proclama-
tion, The sooner the entire people of
the Confederate States come, to realize
the imminent danger to which they
"are exposed, the .better for them.
They must calculate to meet a united
North) an'd make, up their minds to
su-bmait to, and prepare for a Ion --and
'loody war,. unless 'he ` terpsionf
Providence prevents it. Rule or ruin
.is their mxotto,- amd-the sooner we un-
derstand and prafi.t by it, the better
for all concerned.
There is a mighty struggle in the
future-a mighty crisis impending,
and weighty responsibilities resting
not only on our authorities, but even
upon the humblest of individuals. We
can all do something to aid our caus0,
and however little each may be ablo
to do, it should be done with' energy
and .heerfuInIess, If we are but true
to ourselves, 'a,4 do Oqur whole -duty,
hunibly trusting -* the aid of a .Wise
.Providence to bless us in our efforts to
throw off the Yankee yoke, we wi~l bq
Certain to succeed ultimately. ,A peo-
ple determined to be free in such a
country as we have,,cannot be con-,
quered. He who presides over the
destinies of all people can cause .bne
thousand to put ten million to flight.
Man should rely on his Maker; for, as
certain as he forgets Him, he must ex-
pect to be forsaken in the hour of dan.
<, Educate The Poor.
The cause of education will always
bewarmly supported in our columns,
and one of the most important features
in our future .policy, will be its contin-
Sual advocacy.
Parents cannot 'be toro careful about
the .education of their children. Prop-
erty may fly to the four winds, but a
well cultivated: mind is a precious pre-.
sent treasure to any person,"
.:There are a large, number of poor
children growing ; up in ign~orance in,
-our State, and ....nless some plan is ado p<

ted for their education, they will grow-
Up, unable .to oad the history of the
nOle deeds of their fathers and broth-
era, now .battling-to free' them from
the yoke of tyra ny, ignorance- and de-
gradation..- '
There is m ?ralt educational fund al-
ready provided III this, State, and per-
haps a credit to. nearly every county,

how many children -could, be taught

2. Is it bt cause of the inconsisten-
