A short t.nn- ago the < aim nlivc committee of tlii women's branch of the centennial n,mission invited a number of colored ladies ; meet with them at Xo.

Certain work was >l illicit thrill, whuh, llier declining to |ier: . a,. a in.siindc: standing arose at the outset, shell has since called birth an explanation on ilio part of the white ladies. It being the established practice ! the Vinci>y Tmrf to give all sides a fair and impartial hearing, one of our lrporters last seek "interviewed" Miss I.e Count, an exceedingly intelligent anil affable young iady, who is jierhaps most tumiliar with the subject. All the questions were answered . font!.- oid in :i m inner wl.irh ited ths: the handsome young lady fell the indignity under which she was placed. Reporter Mi1-* l.e Count, harniug that v,,? #r, j:; -tl of the ' >hin-?lrect public eh !, "cvcc.th section, I therefore regard you s-'oi,. < f . a: re; ic-rntativr women, and vour ?: iaimi w ill bo highly esteemed ; therefore I nave called to interview you, with the ho]* of hearing a full statement of all concerned with the organization of the so-called "colored branch of the centennial." Will v a ]b;t?e state, Mi*? l.e Count, in your own war, all that oeeurred? Miss l.e Count 1 was one of those ladies solicited, at the request of Mrs. Aubrey H. Smith, to eo pernio with the women's branch of the commission. The first meeting was c .i.venrd at 004 Walnut street, at whieh Dr. lbbeva .1. Colo was appointed chairwoman. The committee was organized in presence of Mr-. Smith, (iilespic, Cohen, and Miss Mcllcnry books and all things necessary to em:; 'etc the organization being received from Mr-. Smith. Now, sir, 1 wish you to understand that 1 did not attend this meeting, but what 1 am sating to you is substantially what occnrrc d there. The manner of Mrs. Smith was so dictatorial, and the orders so humiliating, that a meeting wa? called the aine en uing to protest again, t the character < ! the organization. Reporter-Miss l.e Count, did the Indie assembled nt the first meeting consent to perform the work assigned them. Miss la; Count I understand that the ladies listened, <juictly, astonished, as Mrs. Smith proceeded to tell them who and what they were, and to inform them of the duties to !>e performed. Their education forbade their discussing with this refined and model exjioiicrit of the elevated sentimrnUe nlertained by the "women of the. laud," wishing rather to reply thereto after a calm and dispassionate examination of the course pursued. Reporter ?Did your committee at the meeting held take any action? Miss l.e Count?(>! yes, sir. Resolutions were drafted, a copy of which 1 hand you. sr. i were forwarded to the Executive Committee. To this respectful communication, up to date, we have rccciveil no other reply than the verbal statement of Mrs. 5mith, who stated at a subsequent meeting of our i ommiltee that she represented the Executive Committee. A statement which an intelligent community could well appreciate as coming from the great representative of the "women of the land." Reporter?Miss l.e Count, what was the tenor of Mrs. Smith's remarks at, that meeting which you said was held at the house of I ?r- Cole ? Miss l.e Count?Mrs. smith staled that we could not he accepted on any other conditions than those originally stated ; that is, we must work as a separate committee, based upon color; that we solicit subscriptions from, anil our whole work he confined to, colored people alone ; that we hud no right to work among white people; that wc were solicited as a matter of courtesy, the right being confined to those whom she represented. Mrs. Smith also irrelevantly touched upon the social question, and even went so far as to speak of "remanding" us to Africa if wc. were not satisfied with the laws of the land, a statement, Which, in my opinion, needs no reply from intelligent persons. To be plain, the entire sentiments of Mrs. Smith were but a reiteration of those sentiments which have always characterized the opponents of justice. They were a revival of the bitterest color prejudices. Reporter?Miss l.e Count, wiil your committee act, should other arrangements lie made ? Miss l.e Count I think not, sir. in fact I feci certain that we will take no part in the commission whatever. Having been placed :i a lai^e j><>-:i1011 in an artieic in the J'ress, t' A J .ril ">lh, after the interview witli Mrs. Smith, wc endeavored to set ourselves right !a ! re the public in tho I'ies? of April 17th, itinl there the entire atl'air rests. Importer Miss I.c Count, you emphasize the word "remand" Tory bitterly. Was there anything in the maimer in which that sentence was used that caused you to do so? Mi-s i.c Count?1 did it, sir, because the. word i? fraught with the in<>st painful asso' ats n?, and it is only those who have stif!i lot as we have that can fully understand It was a term used when the dealers in the bodies and souls of men succeeded in " ttinj* their prey and consigning them to intern. liable bondage. It was the legal term '.'l it belonged to the fugitivc-slavc-latv days, and I should have thought this lady would have hesitated to have used such a word |.?f?re eleven American women, whose only i time in her eves was that their complexions sere less fair than hers. From historic asso ..-.tiona the word should have heen as unpleasant to l.er as painful to us. iiejsirtor -Vou said that the statement of Mr?. Smith, in volunteering to "remand" ?"ii hark t > Africa, if you were not satisfied wiih the laws of the land, needed 110 reply fr> 111 intelligent tieonle. Wlivso? >!. ? I.( Count To be intelligent is to understand llie laws of the land, ami the great feature of our law? i? that they make no distinction bv reason of color, and are therefore in direct conflict with this movement of Mrs. smith's. To produce so giund a :i -ui:, which the truly intelligent can comprehend, ha? cost our nation thousands of vi - and millions of money, and we laugh to "urn this attempt to repudiate the sacrifices and sufferings of true Americans. In them " participated, not to the. exclusion of Mrs. Smith and her "Women of America," but to he common inheritance of all. due resolutions referred to by Miss Le 1 oust, which were adopted the night of the m meeting with the Ladies' Centennial ' omniifsion, and which were sent to the president and ladies of the women's branch of the C'cntcnuial Commission, arc as follows : H'hrreat, We, the undersigned, are dissal ficd with the arrangements of the Women's Executive Ceutennial Committee, as made l.r,own to us on the 4th of April, y.Vso/rcd, That v.o consider said arrangements unjust, since, in beiug permitted to oilcct fimdn from colored j^rsons only, there too much restriction. /ai'Jref, That in thus working to ignore our wards, a barrier i? raised which we know r.ot how to surmount, and the sub-committee failed to coiDpicbend how anything could be aceouipl.thcd whan they met to devise ways and means?since in ward work there is -\stem and regularity, and apart from it there .? none.

The colored jicople are entitled to have their j ' ; children educated, and the plan proposed by I ! Mr. Hickman's hill, though falling something I sliotl of even-handed justice, yet would have i | hr< 11 greatly better than the present lack of I | any legal provision whatever for educating 1 ' such children. i j We are confident that a second stupid fail- ! | me by oiii l egislature to make some provi- I i sion for taxing colored people for school pur- I i poses, and educating their children at the i public expense, will result in exceedingly 1 disagreeable eousei|ucnccs. We seriously I doubt if the present discrimination on account : of race and color will bear tlie test of trial !: [before the Vnitcd Stale* courts, awl if the 11 i l,cgi.*laluie fails again to do anything toward j< I providing separate schools for the colored t children, we believe the colored people will I and ought to obtain justice through the courts i j of the 1'nited States bv tendering taxes to t I those authorized to receive them, ami ?e- t i minding public school uccoinmodatious for ; i their children. 1 i Our people profess to be an honest people, j loving fair play. I,et them, then, for a t j moment, put themselves in the place of these j | colored people who are seeking to struggle r into a better condition. They have petitioned \ the Stale to tax them and give them school j accommodations for their children, and the r State sullenly refuses, and tells them to tax t themselves. They reply, justly, the utmost t power of the States is barely sufficient to the 1 eollection of taxes, and we, armed with no c legal |K>wer, cannot lax ourselves; besides, c the taxes received from the poorer white pco- 'J pie, who are better oil' than ourselves, would s not educate their children, and the public p school system was devised for the special r ! purpose of having the rich and strong help c | the poor and weak secure for tlieir children r j that education which is necessary to tit thcin \ I for citizenship in a free State. Why, then, g ! demand of us in our poverty to bear our bur- j dcu unaided and alone ? s The answer is a sufficient one, and the man t i who fails to let it turn liiin from his injustice u | in this matter is not merely no Christian, t ; willing to do as he would he dona by, but he ( | is lacking iu those honest impulses in behalf e i of fair play and the protection of weakness j, j which characterize the. actions of most sav- c | ages. Xor is this all; he is a blind, prcju- f I diced fool who endangers free government t | and the best interests of the community in > ! which lie lives by planning to secure igno- t i lance in the voters who will help shape and t I control the destiny of our Male. We know f that many if not most of the Democrats about ] j here are opposed to such a policy, and we < appeal lo them to not let the uulightcncd ( stupidity of their partv friends from below , ! mil ll.e stiirmn of (lii* vile iinin.. mwl iniio.- .

A desul- | ; tory debate sprang up on the subject of color j | prejudice, which was participated in by I Messrs, Purvis, Spear, and others, but it was t ; laid aside to lake up the, question of colored ^ I representatives in the Centennial Comniis- j : si?n. Mr. Purvis said he. did not know the j ! exact condition of affairs in regard to the ex- t j elusion of colored people from the work of r | helping along the centennial movement, hut a j he would investigate the matter and report v at the next meeting of the club. He bad p | heard that color prejudice was powerful p among those who were the managers, and if c I so it should be crushed.

II tic An account is ;irni in the London Mornutg tui of the fortuities on the occasion of the w: rercnt marriage of the eldest of the sou; of to the Viceroy of Egypt. It !ta? the first of, th tire marriages following the letrothal last; c!< year of three of the eon* and one of the th< daughters of the Khedire. On three even- | nx ings the fjuccn-mother received a certain ; Uu number of Indie* at a harem dinner. Bui mt the great night was the last, that of the 22d , at January, when the bride appearc<l the last Bi lime before proceeding next day to her bus- wj hand's house. Several Europeans had invi- ; cui latimis to see this great festivity, of wliith hi: one of them gives a description : At last we dif w ere allowed to enter the great saloon, w lo re lo< the t^uecn-mother sat on her throne. She In was dressed in Oriental stvle, and on one wl side of her was the head wife of the Viceroy, ag; ?nd on the other her grand-daughter, a girl tin uf about fourteen. A French lady belonging a=i to the household presented us to the t^ueen, W! who bowed affably, and then we sat down fcl imong the other European ladies who were sti ?v.uiu "? ull of women dressed after many different1 mj fashions. There were the wives of the Vice- thi ov, his married daughter, the wires of many at pachas with splendid European dresses and cm :rains literally covered with lace and jewels, thi \nd with their faces showing a considerable " t miount of paint. There were other women towith ill-fitting, badly-made dresses of silk? hai Ircsses of fashion half eastern and half Eu- soi opean- and with diamonds put anyhow on 10 ' heir heads. Others wore loose flowery fr? lressing gowns, with silk handkerchiefs tied urban-like round their beads. Then there the vere black women, with arms and legs bare, no1 ind gold bands or bracelets on the upper '101 iart of the arm and around the ankles. The a"; anissarics are. pretty young girls with hair hsl ut short. They wear a little black velvet cv< acket embroidered in gold, with trousers on' caching to the knee to match, a velvet cap wa villi a diamond ornament, each of them has abl 1 liltlo unsheathed sword. They were run- a r ling about the room all the evening trying *a(' o keep all those noisy women in order, and sor o prevent them from worrying the European ai'I adics. Sonic of the slaves got under the a'" hairs and took hold of our feet to examine t0 ' mr shoes, felt the stuff of our dresses, &c. ^or rhe saloon was handsomely furnished with cpf ilks, velvets, brocades, and large looking- no> ;lasses, and was lighted hv an enormous ('re lumber of wax candles in silver and gold C1,'C ainlelabras. When we were all seated w" ound the room the ceremony began. All the jnl' roman that worked 011 the Princess' trous- "?l cau passed one after another before tlic ol ("ice queen and received a present of a Per- lM1f ian shawl. As each received it she began cra o dance and to roll herself 011 the floor, Sl'" itteriug words of thanks and blessings on ' he Princess and her family. This noisy for lusiuess lasted nearly an hour, and then the unuchs, certaiuly not less than livo hundred number, placed themselves in two rows, j :acli holding a silver candlestick. Tlicy cej, brined a passage from the entrance door to tcI he door of another drawing-room, which ras kept clear of the slaves. After a few niuutcs of something like silence we heard sur he mingled sound of violin, tamhourine and BIn; lute, and the bride's procession appeared. anl r'irstcume twelve women, dressed, though not j,;, ilegantly, in satin or silk, playing the instru- |)C( nents we have mentioned. The tune was a | uouotonous, and by no means harmonious. pa( 1'hcn there wero eight dancing girls, in pink ,Ti, ;auze with white spangles, and with flowing paJ lair. They were not pretty, but were rather ton ;raccful,and moved along dancing, or rather ]il(| sending and twisting themselves, in time tha .villi the music. The bride followed, sup- so >oi ted by lour other maids or slaves. She hja ,vore an Oriental dress with a long train, ]ec Ahich was held up by four little black girls; ps| ler face and head were ornamented with pr, ewels and small gold coins, and her hair was acf lown, but covered with a veil of silver to, hrcad. As it is the fashion for the biidc to Up, vcar as far as possible all her presents of is; ewelry on these occasions, the poor girl had a|K hrcc diadems on her head, bracelets up to )ifc ler elbows, and brooches and other orna- prn nents on the front of her dress. She walked i,js ilnng very slowly, and it seemed as if she the rould have fallen had she not been supported hot iv the four girls. A little slave walked near pet icr, holding a silver tray full of small gold pe oins, a handful of which . the bride threw it ivcr her back from time to time, for good j Cry uck it was Baid. A crowd of women followed to he bride, but they were stopped at the en- c01 ranee to the other room by the eunuchs, who Cnn losed the door after the musicians, dancing wit ;irls, and bride had entered. Into this room anc he European ladies were admitted a few- at iilt l time, and found the bride sitting on a throne, the vith the mother of the Viceroy (who pre- tim cded them) on her right, and the mother of the icr future husband on her left. We were jar: :ach in turn presented to the bride. Then pic, ill kinds of dances were performed liy the the amedancing girls, while other younger ones, itting on the floor, threw little gold coins J;v ibout the room, which we were all expected 0 pick up for good luck. Some time elapsed j jjol icforc all the European ladies had been pro- j i,ua entcd and the dances were finished. Then foil he bride was again led through the crowd in ! tioi 1 large saloon and conducted to her room. I ir... Tying bitterly, and looking ready to faint. rac iVbeu she hail left we all bowed to the Queen- his nother and to the wives of the Viceroy, and tiui hen made our way down stairs, amidst the lusbes and s> reams of the slaves, to another reti arge room, where stood low. round tables, furi prcad with sweetmeats, fruit and eake. _\j, L'heu we went to the place where the cloaks thc lad been left, and after much difficulty, hav- f?r ng found our wraps, were again taken charge jn >f by the same eunuch who had accompanied .sta is on our arrival, and who conducted us fr0| iloug the corridor to the carriage. The im- bee ircssiou left ou our minds was that nothing , ould be me>rc magnificient in the way of, Iresses, jewels, lights, <S.c., but that amidst XL til the splendor there was a total absence of j >olh dignity and order. The number ofj liasteni women present was said to he about \ 1,000, but there were very few who could be l(ll onsidered handsome. All would have looked ! ner letter in more purely Oriental dress. The ' tj,g vhole spectacle was most interesting for its i 0[. , jovclty, but not one which wc would often i out lesire tu Denote. jnc iesuvuies terminated in the following day w ith a grand procession ' q]; >f the bride from Kasr-el-Ah to her husband's ,v|j alace. The whole of these festivities, from a_ list to last, were to be repeated on the occuion of the threo other marriages, and were an, onduetcd utterly regardless of expense. It I u jj s said that they w ould cost the Viceroy more crj, ban a million and a half. 11-[0| . "'b Illusions. sac ? wh A gcutleman who had lately lost hir wife.

" Why," she 1 for aid, "mother is sitting there." Another org laughter was called, and she experienced the we ame illusion. Then the gentleman went in rnt into the garden, and found that a garden wa iresaof his wife's had been so placed orer Fie he seat as to produce the illusion which had ho' Jeceivcd him and his daughters.

Jane G. Swissinrt.m. Use <onl St3j?j>lj. How Long Will it (loir! Out ! [From the riltsburz Commercial.1 In the geographies and school-books that ere used a generation ago it was stated that iu the hills opposite Pittsburg were inexlusliblc suplics of coal," and it has beer. ie custom to speak of the coal resources ? f i I'csteru Pennsylvania as likewise "inex-| tustiblc," just as a few years ago, it was j ual to speak of the coal supplies of Kng- j nd. Vet the coal in the hills opposite i itu-.hurg lias been completely exhausted lis many years, and the recent rapid ad- j ince iu liic price of coal in I-lngland hm- . omonstratcd the follv of the "incxhausti- j 1c" theory tliere. Kngland has been min- ' ig coal at the rate of 12c,000,000 tons yeaiiy I -a rate, which at no very distant date, must j ad to total exhaustion. It will not do, ! lercfore, to lay the flattering unction to our mis that our supplies arc incapable of ex- i austion. For the present they may se?tn ; jimdlcss and limitless ; hut we arc using i icin up steadily, and at a rate which inii-t, ithin a calculable limit, tell upon the sum ital, however large we may fancy that t > The census statistics show that in lsT" j eunsylvania mined and sent to market j ,800,0( 10 tons of bituminous coal, all of j hich came from the western part of the talc, and the census is not regarded alowitig the full amount so mined. Its tig-' iCs are approximate only, and it is therefore ife to assume that we are now mining at the ! ite of 8,o0o,O00 tons a year. A inn is, in j >und numbers, thirty bushels ; and a> the ! ilculation of coal quantities i. better uuder- ' .ood here by bushels than by tons, we wall, ir the better understanding of the problem, 1 aluec the tons to bushels. The total y. arly roduct of bituminous coal in Western Penn- ! rlvania is therefore 270,000,11 id bushels. An :re of coal is variously understood to yield 1 'im fliymii in io?,uvu uiisiicis, ana lidearly drain will be seen t > exhaust 2,"On i .res. This in ten years will amount t" ",noi> acres, and in one hundred years to j *0,000 acres ; but it is not supposable that :t! ade which seems only in its infancy will ; op at the figure nowattained. In ten years onr now, from present appearances, the roduet of 1873 will he doubled, and in 1 -a | ran thirty years quadrupled ; so that, pro- j ibly, by the opening of the twentieth ec:iiry, we shall he using up leu thousand el res yearly. The area of the eoal field of Western i . :iu- I ,'hernia is probably less than o,00o square lies. This is a large area, and no one livg need fret about its being exhausted in lhly or that of his children or grandchildren : j it still, if we arc now using up five squar iles yearly, and go on steadily increasing i ten, twenty, and forty square mil' - jcar, it is easy to figure out the exact limit of io supply. Keen now, the cost of bunging to market is so much increased that we may j iftlv conclude the days of cheap coal are ,'er. We shall never again see it as cheap . I it has hem. As the river hills become i lhaustcd, and the tramways lime. to he exuded hack, and still fuithcr hack, and t;;uir grows scarcer and labor dearer, the cor t placing it on the market mu-l steadily incase. The sum of it all, then, is that while we ive plenty of coal to last us for hundreds of nil's to couie, the -upply la not inexhau-'.i- : e ; and all the near-at-hand snpplie- are ing rapiJlv used up, the more distant supies will cost more to deliver. There is do inger of a eoal famine for a long lime to >nie; hut there is, on the other hand, no osjicct of cheaper prices in the future. I UuiikUm ill lll? Hail.
