Cfre glcpmfltMk THE MACON UNION. The editor of the Macon Union has grown exceedingly angry because the outraged colored people of the South are to meet in convention te consult with each other as to the best means of ameliorating their sad condition. Hav- ing, in no very choice language, de- nounced the gentleman whose duty it was to issue the call, this editor of the Union turns his attention to the sign- ers of the call, and among them the editor of the Isiew National Era, charg- ing him with race prejudice. We say to the editor of the Union that the colored race of this country are fast be- coming able to think and act for them- selves, and they readily learn to know friends from enemies, and it does not lack in appreciation of the efforts of friends. But we hold that no man is a friend to the negro who wishes him to follow implicitly all the advice such man may offer, and to show no inde- pendence of thought or action for him- self. It appears to be the idea of the editor of the...

OAIT COLORED FOLKS LEARN ? In the 26th Annual Report of the Board of Education for Massachusetts, page 81, we find the following : In my last report I urged the import- ance of mastering spelling during the ; memorial age of the child, while the memory is circumstantial and easily grasps details, words and their forms, and while the philosophical memory is yet latent. The conviction then ex- pressed, that the art of spelling may be essentially completed under ten or twelve years of age, has been strength- ened by the observations of another year. As this statement has been more than once questioned, even by teachers, I cite a single fact in its confirmation. At the meeting of the Rhode Island Institute of Instruction, held in Provi- dence during ihe month of January of the present year, ifdass of colored chil- dren, of the average age of nine years, from one of the primary schools of the city, came to the church where the ses- sion was held, to be examined.
