CHRIST AaND THE LITTLE ONES.
“ The Master ha* come over Jordan, r
Said Hannah, the mother, one day;
“ He is healing the people who throng Him
With a touch of Hi* Unger, they say.
“ And now I shall carry the children.
Little Rachel, and Samuel, and John;
I shall carry the hahy Esther,
For the Lord to look upon.”
The father kicked at her kindly.
But he- shook hi* head and smiled;
“Now, who but a doting mother
Woo 1 think of a thing so wild?
44 It the children were tortured by demons,
Or dying of ferur, 1were well;
Or had they the taint ot the leper,
Like tnuuy in Israel.”
44 Nay, do not hinder me, Nathan,
I feel such a burden of care;
Jf 1 carry it to the Master,
Perhaps I shall leave it there.
*• If He lay* Hi* hand on the children,
My heart will be lighter, I know;
For a blessing forever and ever
Will follow them a* they go."
So ov_*r the hills of Judah,
Along the vine—ruse green.
With Esther asleep on her bosom,
And Rachel her brothers between—
’Mong the people who hang on His teaching,
Or waiting Ub touch or Hi* word,
Throigh the row of proud Pharisees listening.
She pressed to the feet of her Lord.
“Now, why should*st thou hinder the Master?”
Said Peter, “with children Uke these?
Seest not how from morning to evening
He tescbelh and heketb disease ?”
Then Christ said, “ Forbid not the children!
Permit them to come unto Me!”
And Ue took in His arms little Esther,
And Rachel He act on Hi* knee.
And the heavy heart of the mother
Was lifted all earth-care above,
Aa He laid His hand on the brothers.
And blest them with tenderest love—
Aa Ue said of the babas in His tv'vom,
“Of such is the Kingdom of Heaven;”
And strength for all duty and trial
That hour to her spirit was given.

standing right before her, wiib toesjust even
with the crack o' the fl-mr, and her bands
were banging down by her side, and her
mouth tnrred up like a chicken when it
drinks and she was patting this question to
her oot o' the catechism:
• What are the benefits which in this life,
do either accompany or flow from justifica
tion, adoption and sanctification V
• Now, this question Itself was enough to
break tbe child down. Bat when she had to
begin to say that question all over (for that's
the way it was in the bonk) and then hitch
tbe answer to it, and which, all put together,
made this: ‘The benefits which in this life
do either accompany or fl >w from justification
adoption and sanctification are peace of
conscience, joy in the Holy Ghost, in
crease of grace, and preseverance therein
to the end. I thought the child was tbe
the greatest wonder I bad ever seen all my
life. She tuck it right through too. without
balkin' or missing tbe first word. And she
spoke so sweot and she looked so like a lit
tle angel, that before I knowed it the tears
was runnin' down my cheeks as big as buck
shot. I've seen tbe day when I could have
mauled and split a thousand rails quicker and
easier than I could larn that thing and said it

The Brain Oaring Sleep.
Prof. Ferrier says that it has been noticed
in men that have bad ail parts of tbe skull
removed by accident, that in sleep tbe braiu
becomes of a light color—there is bat a little
circulation—but as waking commences it be
comes roney from tbejincraase of circulation.
An illustration of the fact that in sleep there
is less circulation in'thotrain and more in tbe
body, is to be found in tbe fact that any one
with boots on in taking an afternoon nap on
a sofa will be aware of the iacreased circula
tion in the feet by a feeling of tightness of tbe
boots. Whatever tends to lessen this circula
tion in the brain promotes strep. Hot drinks
dilate tbe bloodvessels, and make the supply
ot blood to tbe brain less. Putting the feet
into hot water has a similar effect; a warm
room, too, as every ono knows, tends to the
same result. What ever tends to keep op the
circulation of the blood fit the brain is opposed
to sleep. Any over activity of the brain in
thinking tends to keep up tbe circulation, and,
in case of sleeplessness dne to this cause, tbe
simple plan is to endeavor to get the brain to
think of some motion or eoood wbieb has a
rythmical munotony. To engage in brain
work after a meal is to take to the brain blood
needed fur the stomr-h.

over tbe 'domain ot civil righte heretofore

only were intended to stamp oat laws in any
State which discriminated against African cie

very much whether any action of a State nor

purview of this provision.’ In other opinions
tbe Court declares that, excepting as to race,

This is the pretense. What is the faet t
The black population of Sooth Carolina is a
tremendous majority. State officials and a'l
Federal officials are Republicans. The white
Democrats have been in a sad minority. The
negroes have been taught that if they do not
vote the Republican ticket Grant can and will
remand them tn servitude. In this election
the negroes are in large numbers upholding
Hampton and Democracy- If a negro pro-
poses to vote the Republican ticket he is ap
planded by bis own race and the Federal of
ficials. but if he prefers the Democratic tick
et, the same persons * intimadate* him.
This is on account nf the color of his vote
and not of his stin. If a negro be driven awa'
from the polls because holding a. Republican
vote, and welcomed when he brings a Demo
cratic vote, his voting free will has been de
nied or abridged, not on account of‘race,
color, nr previous condition of servitude,’ but
on account of his politics. Has Grant nr the
National Government anything to do with
thatf Tbe negroes are intimidated by one
another in Sonth Carolina, not because they
are of African descent, but because the intim
idators dislike their political purposes and
propensities, and to change the latter Grant
orders the army into tbe State.

powerless; he was compelled to have leisure
to die. Let us beware bow we make ourselves

A Hard Bombardment.
The greatest ammunition that we have heard
f lately was need by the celebrated Commo
dore C»e, of tbe Momevidian navy, who, in an
engagement with Admiral Brown, of the Bue
nos service, fired every shot from his locker.
Wbat shall we do, sir!' asked tbe first
lieutenant; • we've not a single shot aboard—
round, grape, canister and double-beaded all
• Powder gono, eh V asked Coe.
* No, sir—got lots of that.’
• We bad confounded hard cheese—a round
Dutch one for dessert at dinner to-day—don’t
you remember itf said Coe
I ought to; I broke tbe carving-knife in
trying to ent it, sir.’
• Are there any on board V
• About two dozen—took ’em from a drover.'
* Will they go into tbe 18-pounders f
‘ By thunder, Commodore, that’s the idea;
I'll try ’em,* cried the first lnff.
And in a few minutes tbe fire of tbe old Sarna
Maria [Coe's ship.) which had ceased entirely,
now opened, and Admiral Brown fonnd more
shot flying over bis bead. Directly one ot
them struck his mainmast, aad as it did so it
scattered in ever; direction.
* What the devil is that the enemy are fir
ing V asked Brown; bat nobody coaid tell.
Directly another one came in through a port
and killed two men who stood near him; then,
striking tbe bulwarks, bursted into flioders.
* By Jove ! tuts is too much; this is some
new Paixbam or other—I don't like 'em at
all!' cried Brown. And then, as four or five
more of them came slap through bis sails, be
gave tbe orders Pi fill away, and actually back
ed out of tbe fight, receiving a parting bread-
sid" of Dutch cheese.
This ie an actnal fact. Oar informant was
tbe first lieutenant of Coe's ship.
What the Democracy of ffoorghf Has Dane
for Negro Education.
We propose for the benefit of our Northern
brethren who may be laboring under some
misapprehension on the subject, to show by
figures of an official character how the Radi-
cala of Georgia not only did nothing for negro
education, but absolutely stole everything de
voted by law to that purpose; while the Dem
ocrats of Georgia have entitled themselves to
the everlasting gratitude of tho colored race
by their efforts to give that rao,u tlio enlight
ening benefits of a generous culture.
The Radicals of this State have been wont
to boast of their fostering care of the negro,
and have deceived both the negro and the out
side world as to what they have done. We
shall puncture the fraud and show what a
sham is their claim in this matter. They
have also been accustomed to falsify the ac
tion of tbe Democrats and to assert that they
not only did nothing for tbe colored people,
but opposed tbe welfare and progress of that
people. We shall show that the Democrats
'f Georgia, when in power, have nut only
remedied tbe stealings of a Retinol regime
hut have taken advanced position in negro
education and moat liberally devoted the pub
lic money of the State to that purpose.
Tbe figures that we shall give are as start
ling as they are true.
With all of its bombastic cl a i to of regard
for the black and philanthropic endeavor to
further his interest, the Radical administra
tion of Bullock diverted the large sum of
$376,834,37 oi the pnblic fund appropriated
by law to pnblic education. And the records
if the State Department show that bis ad
ministration educated but 6 684 colored pu
pils. This misapplicat ion of school funds ab
solutely prevented the education of more of
the colored people- And it is a remarkable
fact that the education of those actually
schooled was paid fur by it succeeding Demo
cratic administration. The sum of *174 000
was raised by tbe first Democratic adminis
tration that succeeded tho Bullock regime to

Bullock rule. The Democrate not fonly paid
he State free school bills of thnir own admin-
stration, but those of the Radical administra
tion And the Radical dynasty not only di
verted ail the school money of their own term,
■ut bad tbe Democratic regime following to
pay what schooling it did do.
This is tbe Radical record, as shown by the
official figures, on this much misunderstood
In 1873. the first year of Democratic rule
in Georgia since tbe war, tbe colored pupils
educated at tbe expense of the Stare under
the State free school system, was 19 755. or
13.091 more than the year before under Rad
ical rule. In 1874 the colored pupils number
ed 42 374, or an increase of 22 619 over 1873.
In 1875 the number of negro scholars ednea-
ed by the State was 50 359.
We thus have 112.448 negro children edu
cated under Democratic rule in throe years,
against 8 664 under Radical rule, or a differ
ence in favor of Democratic liberality to the
black of 105,824. This is a very significant
In the year 1875 when tbe State of Georgia
under Democratic rule educated 50.359 ne
groes, she educated 105.990 white children, or
inly twice as many more. Yet the whites pay
ninety-nine hundredths of the taxes and num
ber in population r45,822 white children to
116 869 colored children.
We might carry this comparison farther,
but think it only necessary to state the fact
that for years the State of Georgia under a
Democratic dynasty has appropriated by sol
emn resolution of tbe Legislature $8,000 a
vear to keeping up a colored University in
Atlanta, while not one dollar dees she give to
nor own white colleges This is a striking
fact. Tbe State pays tbe white Staro Uni
versity some interest money on a large amount
of property sold to the State, bat to tbo col
ored University alone dues sbe give monsy.—
