The best way to find out whether the descendants of the African race have made much progress in the last twenty-five years, is to measure from the depths of misery and degradation to the present position attained, rather than to reckon as to how much is yet to be accomplished. Of course while there is much to discour age one, yet when we make the comparison of what has already been accomplished by the race, and note the struggles of other races from thraldom and oppression, such as the Danes, the Angles and the Saxons, we may be in some degree relieved of an impression that our progress has been rather slow when compared to other races under similar circumstances. So far as the...

GENERAL NEWS. Texas Blade: Wednesday afternoon a colored girl named Mary Frazer, who lives mear Ham's branch, near Forth Worth, was stung in the mouth by a yellow jacket, which had settled on a peach she was eating, and in a few moments the inside of her mouth was so swollen that she could not swallow nothing. From the mouth the swelling spread to the upper part of the head, her nostrils being almost closed, her respiration being just sufficient to sustain life. Thursday morning the swelling began to subside and all danger has passed. Southern Leader: Hon. John R. Lynch, in course of a speech at Indianapolis last week, said: ''When I speak of of education, I do not mean book learning merely. We must teach our sons and daughters industrial occupations as well. All of us cannot be and ought not be lawyers, doctors and preachers. We ought to have our blacksmiths, our carpenters, our painters, our plasterers, our bricklayers, our manufactuv. rs, our printers, in fact, people engaged in ...

It is really amusing to read "many of the speeches made at Chicago in the General Convention of our Church, on the Church and its relations to the Colored People. It was a source of much joy to us while reading the several speeches, for our eyes now and then to glance ,at the practical and common-sense remarks of such men as Professor Nelson oi the Virginia Seminary, Rev. Dr. Newton of this diocese and Rev. Dr. Gray of j ennessee. No doubt it is vastly . entertaining for our more favored brethren of the clergy and laity to assemble in such a place as Chicago and discuss and theorize on the "poor Negro," until they have exhausted every conceivable phase of the question, and then find them...

"How he Displayed Them." Southwestern Christian Recorder: The charge made against the Negroes when helpless women and children were exposed to their power during the war that net a single hair in the head of any of these helpless ones was either harmed by any Negroes or allowed to be harmed by any one else. So in Charleston the other day, when dismay and terror set supreme, there was ample opportunity for the display of those brutal qualities which we so frequently hear charged against them. How did he display them? He went to prayer and seared all the white lolks. Brutal Negroes, to be sure! For Aged Colored People. Philadephia Tribune: lhe late Edward T. Parker, who died possesed of an estate variously estimated at from 5$ 100,000 to twice that amount, made a will last January in which he left the bulk of his fortune for the purpose of forming a home for aged colored persons.

It is very important that we skou d appreciate the fact that the children of the Church, those who have been baptized, are actually and really members of the ( hurch, although not communicants. In many quarters there is a tendency to seemingly forget the importance as well as duty of constantly looking after the3 T oung ones and consequently we reap the fruits of such neglect in the alienation of the children from the Church. Impressions made upon children in early life are generally lasting and productive of much good, that is, if the impressions made are proper and appropriate. Let the little ones know that they are expected to be present at I Uvine Service and t...

Industrial education is a very important question and largely concerns the present and future of our people. Apparently this question is too lightly estimated and valued by many of our better thinking and scholarly men. The large number of persons who have attended, such institutions and with such gratifying results, should be enough to off-set any argument adduced against such a sysof education. Indeed, we regard this kind of education as a very important lever in the further amelioration of the condition of our people. We hail with no little degree of pleasure the successful operation of the many industrial schools at present and look forward with bright anticipations for an incre...
