WIIITTEN BY CARLTON m'CABTHY. The State of July 36th has made the novel discovery that the negro is "thinking for himself," and proceeds, in what must surely be a hastily prepared editorial to congratulate "some whites 111 the South" on ibis accession to their intellectual forces. It is evident that The State has lost faith in the stability of the white Democrats of the South nr else has made an effort to get up a columnof unusually deep and far seeing statesmanship. A feeble meeting of negroes in Indiana, opened as usual with a prayer and a hymn, causes The State to put on its sevenleague boots and step out to meet the colored brother more than half way. As a sample of this unique column of juvenile statesmanship, please read an extract. The use of the term, ' some whites in the South," makes a man turn over the ...

GENERAL AND SOCIETY NEWS VOL.I. NO. 48. BILL WE Tns Ckitio presents to its readers to day the portrait of Bill Nye, who is one of the most distinguished and best known of American humorists. He is universally admitted to be tbe most humorous humorist since the days of Artemus Ward Nye's boyhood was passed on a farm, but he early manifested an artistic genius. After having received a good education he started to the mountains in 1876, and obtained a position on the old Daily Sentinel in Laramie City, which he occupied for a year. Nye's very appearance is droll, though he is not a ready composer of humor. It must pop in his mind in the course of a conversation or be suggested by some incidents. The rain yesterday afternoon was delightfully refreshing. The Misses Putney went to Afton last Wednesday. Mr. Clarence A- Woolfolk and wife are now in Ban Jose, Cal.

According to tradition he was one of those sent by Berkeley to Charles 11. at Breda, offering him an asylum in Virginia, but thi9 mission rests only in tradition, and is not very probable.
