The nto-i objectionable feature of this lalr.-i i? that it takes front it* the management of out '.hools, and yet thies not make it ini[craft. to provide "mixed schools." The t 'i .'.'.iff, a Herman pnpci, says : I h I . It school hill, which has just been ti.:o!i :t law l?\ the T.eaislature, abolishes the colored . Itooi hoard, and puts all the schools tinder the joint control ot the hoard of cdulatioti. This i'.so fir, unjust, as the colored people will hardly succeed in electing tie of their inmihcr to the hoard of education. Wln thcr the Tall hill abolishes the colored schools and liani-hes the colored children to the white schools we do not vet know. If this is n..| the case we do not -ee why the colored people should not have the direction of the schools supported by their means." The colored |>eopIc are of course indignant at what they term usurpation, hut "whatare they going to do about it?" Tlie teachers dislike the matter, notwithstanding there is a probability that their salaries will lie ilicrcHSeil for certninli- llo. u-blto board will not continue the present disproportion where the .same qualifications aud same duties are required of each. I am informed tiiat the policy dealers have discovered a flaw in the law under which they have closed business, and only wait the adjournment of the Legislature before resinning. Meantime they have established a temporary office at the Covington cud of the suspension bridge for the accommodation of Cincinnati purchasers, and a -procession starts from the corner of Sixth and Uroatlway streets every morning at sharp six o'clock to purchase tickets. A large number of colored employes will lose situations that are easy and profitable by the al^lition of these dens, hut the benefit to the community will lie incalculable. I'ew [ ersons have any idea of the fascination in a game of chance to the poor, or the implicit reliance they put upon dreams aud lucky omens. Too ignorant to tirnl employment for their imagination in aesthetics, they give vfull scope to it in dreams of impossible probabilities. The German, Irish, and colored laboring i lasses of this city permitted a single individual to pocket the snug sum of $00,000 per annum, after paying agents per rentage, office rent, A.C., Ac., and he only a clerk (?) in the business, as sworn to before nti inn nninmittnn of the Union. Vmrlr nil the credit lor the passage of lliis bill belongs to Mr. Ilalstcad, of llio (' mmer-'ial, who lias uol only '"a nose for news," lint an eye, an car, and a heart for the good of his fellowman. Anion" the lending politicians of this Mute there has heen some talk of nominat"i" V .'cilllllll. MAN roll I.IKt'Tl'N ANT OOVKRKOH. If Governor Sores pushes his candidacy for Tliurtsian's place in the Senate, 1 hardly think it will he done, hut should General Sclienek he permitted to liare it all his own way, it is likely to occur. In view of the fart that the colored vote of the State outnumbers the German, it looks like eonteniptuous inditference not to give them some place on the ticket, and, as the Germans had the Lieutenant Governor at the last election, we liojie for it at the coming one. llut more of this auon.

The ladies of Allen Temple complimented their pastor, Itev. It. A.

A call will be issued to-morrow for a meeting on Tuesday to express sympathy for the sufferer* in the Grant parish, Louisiaua, massacre. The Itepublican party will be invoked to bind itself more firmly together, as evidences accumulate that its mission is not accomplished, and that the reconstruction measures are not accepted in good faith. Having "waited for tire facts," and finding tire first rejiort of that horrible butchery only a modification of the cold-blooded, heartless premeditation with which it was effected, coloicd men all over the country will be called upon to bold meetings and express sympathy with those unfortunates, and their dependence upon the action of a itepublican Congress. DePCOB. NK\ v6l. it.?nof 18.} 4 Brilliant WtMin?. The uncial event of the week wan tho wedding of Miss Kate T.., daughter of J. IV. Bowers, Ksq., to Mr. James II. Braxton, at the residence of the bride's parents, No. 9 Douglass street, Brooklyn, New York, on Thursday, the 24th ultimo. The event had been looked forward .to with a great deal of interest by the fashionable world, and great preparations had been made to make it a most imposing event; nor was public expectation disappointed, ns it proved to be the most brilliant anil elegant wedding New York has known in many a year. The floral decorations were supierb; indeed the entire mansion seemed an enchanted castle, the atmosphere filled with the dclicions perfumes of choicest exotics, and burdened with the strains of delightful music. IVe can but allude to one featnrc of the decorations?a tloral wedding bell?a large wedding bell made of cup flow ers, with the initials of the brido (K. B.) interwoven. This bell wass uspendedfroni the ceiling; and under this beautiful anil unique tribute (the gift, we believe, of one of the groomsmen) the bridal pair stood during the jierfonnanee of the ceremony, which was conducted hy the ftev. Alex. Crummell, in a strikingly beautiful and impressive manner?indeed never did the service of the Kpiscopal Church, alwavs grand and imposing, seem more so than on this occasion. The toilets of the ladies were magnificent, and the sii|ijier a marvel of elegance and excellence. The presents were both numerous and costly; fully one thousand dollars was represented?a substantial contradiction to the report now current that the custom of making wedding presents is going out of fashion. Many strangers were present from various sections of the country, including Washington, Philadelphia, Ilartfcrd, Albany, &c. Altogether the wedding was certainly, in all its details, a most brilliant and imposing one. Our report would not be complete without some allusion to the profuse hospitality extended the visitors by the families of Xew York and Brooklyn; conspicuous among which was the dinner party given by_Mrs. Daniel Brooks, at her residence on 50th st. The menue was a clief-iTirurre of elegance and taste, and a most enjoyable termination to the festivities of the week. M. owers. I. "The day is cold, and dark, and dreary. It rains, and the wind is never weary." In the barc-walled, simply-furnished room thcro is no wealth of pictures, no glow of firelight, no song of birds, to compensate for the loss of sunshine, and yet it is filled with warmth, and light, and color. Suddenly it has been transformed into fairy-land, and its occupant would not exchange it for the grandest salun within the stately walls of the White House. Sad thoughts have down; doubts and fears have vanished; a weary soul has been lifted, for a time, at least, out of the region of heavy cares and restless longings, into an atmosphere of generous sunlight and repose? "And so the shadows fall apart, And so the west winds play, I And all the windows of mv heart X open to tne day j And what has brought this unlioped-foi j blessing? What magician has wrought this J wondrous mange? Simply a boiujuet ol j dowers, the gift of a friend whose fine artistic I sense has enabled him even? j "To gild refindd gold, to paint the lilv," | to enhance, by the exquisite arrangement o: the whole, the beauty of each individual dower. Xeedless to say that it contains but very few varieties. U'hat can be more painful to the eyes than the many-liued, rain' bow bouquets which one so ortcn sees' They arc positively barbarous. Trom the centre of this rises a -nowc calla, Borcnt'j ami stately and grand?th< .luno of tlowers. Arouml it cluster tlie bril liant blossoms of the scarlet geranium?i perfect feast to eyes which revel in warmtl and vividness of color. There is a wealth o sweet alyssum and delicious mignonette and then, sweetest of all, the modest helio trope, with its rare fragrance, so delicate and yet so penetrating. It is fittingly callct the "soul-dower," for its fragrance penetrate: far deeper than the senses, and seems t< enter the soul itself. The whole is enelosei in a wreath of soft and shadowy green?i Citing casket for these precious jewels. Ah the giver of this perfect gift "buihled bctte: than he knew," in bestowing a pleasure sncl as few things 011 earth can a fiord. To the lover of tlowers there is in them : wonderful sweetness of consolation, a sensi of really human sympathy. They never los< their charm. They give us some help am hope in our darkest and most despairing hours, when the loveliest pictures, the mos absorbing books fail to divert us or lessei our pain ; when even the presence of friends save one or two who are nearest and dearest seems unendurable, The mountains, tin woods, tlio stars, the sea, in their grandeu impress us with the power nnd sublimity 0 God. They overwhelm us with the eon sciousness of His majesty and our utter insig niticance. Hut flowers, in their delicat beauty and sweetness, arc very near to us and draw us nenrcr to the wise and tende Father who has made them for our specin comfort aud delight. llow like human faces some of them are, pansics? "h?artsea?e,"?especially. I rc member that at pic ol' the slaircaa iu Whituer's plcasaut home there hang a picture?a great cluster of panares, paiutc by a gifted woman's hand ; and the poet tai ho was constantly impressed w ith their wot derfully human look. They have the effa of a group of lovely chndteu's laces. A day or two ago,?one of the "dark days?I stood within a charmed circle < greenery and bloom. Tam-ies were there i their exquisite robes of purple velvet au gold; roses of deepest crimson, purest whin softest cream color; superb calls*, and tinii violets, gorgeous geraniums, verbena* < every hue; the gracefuldeutzia; the feather fairy-like spire*; the queenly, but soullesi camellia; the fsbriana.wiih suow-wlute blot soms, and leaves of rich dark green, an heliotrope and tnignooette, "steeping onesenses in sweetness."

How we t'a revelled in the bracing air, the blue sky? ' cc surely Italian skies could scnrrelv be bluer , hi the glorious \iems of lake, ami town, and tl distant mountains. How eagerlv we filled ,1 i our baskets [and hats with flowers?starry xt saxifrage, blue-eved houstonin*, violets, arid ,( ; hopaticas ; w ith fresh green mosses, silvery ti i lichens* and seores of other treasures. Here al and there, in some quiet nook, we found the O "gem-like" columbine, resting its fanciful n. flowers of scarlet and gold in beautiful con- n> I trast agaiast the gray roek. Then, wander- p > ing into the woods, we found, nestling closely 01 ; under the brown, withered leaves, the sweet fx | pink blossoms of the arbutus?the loveliest sr ! of all the woodland flowers. It is the New ; England "May flower," and is said to he the : first flower which the Pilgrims found in the spring succeeding their long, cold winter o! eullcting and danger. In the woods, too, i ., we found a profusion of violets; not only the j familiar pnrple ones, but the rare yellow spe- 1 ciea, the fragrant white, and the graceful J? hound's tooth. In cool, mossy places, were quantities of sangiiinaria and delicate anemones. < inly the songs of the birds in the ! branches above its broke the sweet stillness , , , , 01 of those pleasant woods. j I.ater in I he season the hills and roads are ^ bright with golden rod ; on the river banks 1 , the magnificent cardinal-flower waves its blood-red illumes : and here, too are the fin. ! grant clethra; the nrrow-head, with its arrow- j \ ! shaped loaves and blossoms of purest white j ^ and gold ; and the clematis banging its grace-1 J. fid wreaths upon every tree and shrub ruir- (j rored in the clear waters beneath.

L. 1 Lrtler from Texan 0 Galveston, Texas, April 22, 1873. ^ To the Editors of the New National Era : ' It may not be generally known that the j " Bepubliean party of this State is some fifty ' thousand in the minority. To couteml sue- j ri cessfuliy against this majority requires the J % shrewdest political management. We are ' not tlic least fearful to meet our "ancient * ' foes" in tlie next election, which will proba- j ' bly occur in August next. But to defeat this j x | overwhelming opposition requires the highest I " order of political knowledge, and your allies I 1 this way would be pleased to hear some sug- ; 1 gestions from you as to the course they should ] v pursue. j ^ The present Legislature is entirely Demo- i c eratie, except nine members in the House 1 n 1 and about fourteen in the Senate. The last ! ^ '! Legislature was Republican. It was the first ' one after the war?and was Republican be' cause the Democrats let tbe election go by 4 | default. The present Legislature was elected J i'; last fall, and goes out January, 1974. "] 11 It sounds strange to say that it is well for 1 ! I the helpless Republican party of this State J ' that the Democratic party had one more ' - \ chance of electing a party of its o\\ n choice > | to the Legislature. Never were Democrats i more disappointed in their chosen leaders.' ! The members of tbis Legislature in tlulr ! , 1 eagerness were so unwise as to pledge them- j .! selves that if elected to do not only the im11 practicable, but tbe impossible.

They will be prominent " in-1 , : dependent candidates" at the next election.' i 1 see by dispatches Ma.i. Thomas Ochletree , l has been appointed marshal, Vice Darker, of ? I this district. This sounds like a joke. It : ? j was so funny to Darker that he had to ask j j! the Attorney Leneral, 'by telegram, at his: y i own expense, if it was true. So bard it is for J i him to believe it is truth and not fiction, he ; 1 j has gone to Austin to make further inquiries. !

The fol lowing is an extract from an account of 4h first case: "After a few ilavs, finding that lie had no improved, 1 decided to try a radical ohang of his alimentation, as regards the ipiantit of food to he taken at a time. Instead < three meals a day, 1 made him take sixty o more. Every twelve or fifteen minutes It took two or three mouthfuls of solid too. chiefly meat and bread. He drank a littl less than a wineglass of Jiordeaux wine an water every thirty or forty minutes. < in th very first day this mode of alimentation wa begun his "digestive troubles disappears and within a week he returned to l'ari.s. He continued the same method of alimct: tation for almost three weeks, and the gradually diminished the number of his hon eoipathic meals and increased the amour taken at each of them until in about eight r ten days he came to eat only three times day, and a full meal at each time." The following paragraphs will serve login the reader a clearer Idea of tin- trcatmer recommended: "The plan consists in giving hut very littl of solid or fluid food of any kind or drink ; a time, and giving these things at regulc intervals of from ten to twenty or thirt minutes. All sorts of food may be taken i mis way, out during me snort peresi wne such a trial is made, it is obvious that t! fancies of the patients are to be laid a.-id< and that nourishing food, such as roasted ( boiled meat, and especially beef, multoi eges, well baked bread, and miik, with bu terand cheese, and a very mod-rate quantit of vegetable and fruit, ought to constitul

the dietary of the patients we try to rehevi This plan should be pursued two.or tlire weeks, after which the patient should gradi ally return to the ordinary system of eatm three tunes a day. The most varied diet as regards the kin of food can be full"ued under this plan i well as when one has only two or three mea a day. The only absolutely essential poim are, that the amount of !ood taken evei ten, lifteeu, twenty, or thirty minutes be vei small, (from one to four mouthfuls,) and tl quantity of solid food in a day he from tlnrt two to forty ounces, or a little less u hei instead of w ater, the patient drinks beef it or milk." L?r. Brown Sequard considers that the fac observed under his treatment eonlirm* tl "view that we are naturally organized, hi ir .11 I ft l>* > ?V.. t and not, as we do, two, three, or four timi a day;'' and that "functional dyepepsi when once it has begun (never mind by wh; rau?e) is kept upani increased by disKLiii of the walls of the stomach." ft might I supposed that there would be trouble fro the distention of the stomach on the retui of the ordinary system of meal*, after sever weeks of the treatment described, hut in t rase luu he found this to occur.

It jives no thoughts, few lett-?", no extracts from the ncarlv fifty years <>f ?enu -a-writing: it gi^es the spirit in . har:. tori-tic deeds. IIow "he went about d--:ng good" is what is shown us. Theodore Parker said of his voice, "God made that voice on purpose to pronounce the beautitudes but, in re ; (?-sl made that life to lire them, and a< hicved a rare suciess. "Ble-sed src the meek, the nten iful, the pure in heart, the peacemakers, those jwrsecuted for the sake of righteousness;" the simple moral laws were all proved true again by this man whose face looted sunshine and whose manner was the inward blessing thrilling through tinman whom children loved and the outcasts knew the best, ami the mobs had howled at and burnt in effigy. Temperance, |>eace, education, anti-slav err ?the?c were the four reforms vital to his day and place. They elected him, not he them. He did not go about to find his good to do. Mis Boston birthplace and his family-blood go far towards accounting for him; but he began his ministry as jxislor of the only I'nitarian church in Connecticut, and it was the Brooklyn dramshops, the Brooklyn schools, the outrage done in another village close bv to Piudence Crandell's colored school, that irate him summons. The other townspeople, the other ministers round about him, heard it -he heard and obeyed. And the young man standing there in his place, by simple loyalty, not by gift of speech or power ot brain, by simpde straightout loyalty to Onduty next liirn, shook first his parish, tin u the , town, then Windham countv then thr? -.tat.. i In a visit to Boston. Garrison had fairly converted him in three of his earliest lectures; . and the very next Sunday after conversion, i having to preach in Br.

JSiTore 1 1 1 secession, it ruled tho whole country, or | . ! lather, its less than three hundred thousand | , ! slaveholders ruled the thirty-six niilliou in- j . ; habitants of the United Mates. A more 1 j monstrous anomaly was never known. A ' v ! more^cxacting and unscrupulous oliga&'hy is | I ; not recorded in history. It was high time j _ i that this aristocracy of slave-owners should . [ : he blotted out, and they have been most ! " : effectually. Hut it is not reasonable that j the power of liftoen or sixteen great States j b j should bo blotted out with them. These | States, though thinly peopled, contain, nev! erlheless, a large population, which is eonj tinually increasing, not only on account of i the natural law w hich makes sparse popula- j . | lions multiply fast, but bv imigration. Ks-1 ; pecially is tliis the case in Texas and other | e j States beyond the Mississippi; and it cannot t ; be long before Knglish capitalists and laborj ers will tiud that the Southern States present, J | much greater advantages than Hrazil or per-1 e ! haps any other country for emigrants. >f The wretched, though not unnatural prejI udico entertained iu the South against the North, which prevents emigration from the | j latter, and especially from New Kngland, to ] the States which so much lack Northern rapII j ital, skill, and enterprise, has been a great j c i bar to the recuperation of those Slates. Hut >' ; that prejudice does not extend to Kurojieans : ' " j and Germany, Kuglaud, aud Italy may yet 'r | discharge their streams of emigration on the 1 c I Southern States, to make what is now, to a '? j large extent, a wilderness, blossom like the e rose. '' Kven as it is, the production of those States c> ' is about as great as it ever was under slavery. " 1 The great blot and curse of that region has , l> | been removed forever, and the most fanatical 1 j defenders of the peculiar institution do not >" wish it back again.

The war they waged ! for slavery showed a self-sacrificing devotion ie | which amply proved earnestness, courage, it ; pluck, and perseverance, qualities w hich ir ! should, when directed into good channels, . y make them a great people, II I If the educated southerners could so far u : overcome their life-long prejudices as to treat ie i their former slaves as men and brethren ; to , welcome them to political and civil equality, >r i and sit beside them in the same town couui, tils, legislatures, and juries ; in the same : t- seats in rail ears, and at the same tables in y hotels and steamboats?if they should do :e this, we say they would he greatly preferred e. to the unworthy swindling carpet-baggers, :e who have ridden into [lower on the shoulders i- of negroes simply because tlic-ir former masters abdicated tlie whole of the great advantages of their position. When cle inass i"* id was a human man, and many old masteris were such, the freedmea would have gone to Is the death lor ban, if he had accepted their ts uca position loudly, and. respected their y newly acquired right?. Hut he chose to rey tire in sullen pride from the political arena, ie and let the worst class that followed the ?- army?the speculators, contrabandists, sut a. tiers?become the political leaders of llie a enfranchised negroes, and their object being money, they enriched themselves and brought t? iuin on the states which they ruled. ?e Xhis, like the ruin caused by the war itte self, was brought ujioo the Jjoulhern planters y, by their own prejudices aad pride, hut they must surely now, if jKiorer, be wiser tneu, a. That war. however, like the wars of the at j Hoses .u KnglauJ, the wars of the revolution ai ; ui France, and the war of the Crimea in t Hussia, has resulted in the emancipation and m i elevation of the laboring masses, however ru I much it may hare aliased and impoverished the planter*. ?
