ILfSC illustrations might he carried "till further. But sufficient lias been addurpd to show Low much we are called upon to pay ibr the luxury of separate schools. As* taxpayer I object to any such expensive system, (laving no prejudice myself on account of .oicr, I object most emphatically to being ailed upon to pay at such a very dear rate :c pander to the prejudice of ethers. Many of these scLcols arc, as in the case of Mr. \ Simmon"-" -su Mr. Jaaney's, within a stone's throw of each other, instead of having two rickiv schools, cue white tad the other colored. but each with a principrl teacher at a salary :f Ji-00 per annum, the two combined not averaging over fifty pupils, if as many. Let us unite the two Into one vigorous, healthy school, and thereby reduce the expenses by one half. Let us unite these schools throughout the county. When hey bcccme too large for a single teacher, give ! him an assistant A much better policy, cer- j tainly, than to be continually multiplying j schools, with principal teachers, which we are wholly unable to support, and which we ought cot to support if we ere abl*. This Beard is now asking the Legislature to impose the unhearcof school tr trf-f eightyfive cents on the hundred upon the- tax-payers of the county, to p.-.j for school buildings already erected, and to continue these expensive separate schools expensive because they are separate, hence this inquiry as to redaction of school expenditures, addressed to us through the Governor, by the Legislature. We do not pay our teacher ton much. We require 2ret-class ability, and we subject all applicants to a rigid examination I hope the time will soon come when this Hoard shall consider it wise to increase the salaries s,f the more worthy teachers. In order that ; this may be done as soon as possible, and hat our schools may be as efficiently and as " economically conducted as any in the country, i shall offer this resolution looking to the .onsnliibit oti of quite a number of the >ehc<.>L; under ne Hoard, and consequently quite a reduction in the number of our prin-ipai teacher,. I am quite cartain that we have ample power to pats the resolution 1 which I have oilersd if we have the will. I The Congressional act under which the Board was organized is entitled : "An act to protide for the Public instruction of youth in the < ounly of Washington,District ofC'olumtiin." Now, certainly, nothing Is said with reference to color. In section 17, however, it is made tin duty of this Board to provide schools for < olorcd children, it uiust, howover, be borne in mind that at the time of the pas>ai-c of this art, June 2",th, 186-4, the w.?lnrr : , topic had no school* in the county, and .! was n step in advance to provide them wlthuny instruction whatever. If the schools _rc provided and the teachers employed the uw will have la-en fully compiled with, whether the colored children go intothe same school with the white "or i i>< m a Again, attic attention i- paid t<> tlie art. I'nder it ?ve, as commissioners, ought to have the privilege <>i paying our teachers in ten monthly : installment", instead of twelve, if we see fit, I and in snort to have complete control over! the county shool fund, limited only by the ! legitimate use for which the tax i? levied,' which Is certainly not the rase. I might iuote the common law extensively from Bii.sk stone and Kent to show that we have no power to compel a colored child to go a \ mile oi more to a colored school when a pubHi. school is at his door. There Is certainly nothing in the Constitution of the T'nltcd | States which ?airants a discrimination on account of color. There is nothing In the organic act under which this District Govern- j meat U organ Lied, upon which to base a dis-1 .rim(nation In our schools on account of color.' The only reference to schools In the organic act, Is in the following words, section tf:i 'And be it further enacted, that it shall he i the duty --f the said Legislative Assembly te | aa.Ltii't. a system of free school? for the education of the youth of said District, aed all money lor school purpose* shall be Bp propria ted for the i<,ual benefit of ell the youth t of '..id D.itiict between certain ages, to be defined by law." Thera is. certainly, | then, no authority Tot separate schooit banc I on color in the organic act, I conclude then I that this Board has ample power in the pre- w< : mi?e? if It will hot exercise it. But let us T1 ace what we are actually doing. I.a*tyeara El school In which nearly half the pupils were hu colored, taught by Ml*< Maria Mann, an ex- of cellent teacher from some one of the New in England States, was supported In part by the tal Boinl. That school, located in the Fourth ba school district, Is still In a flourishing condi- in tioa, and is attended by the children of some wi of the most wealthy and refined citizens of <ia the county, both white and colored. In the new school building on Sixth street, , just heyoM the Boundary, several of the pupils are white. At the school building at vri! Mount Pleasant all are in the same lull ding, If not in the same room. I hear that several *' in the colored room are prepared to be promoted. Sorely yen will net attempt to pro- , vide a separate school for the two or three, c;? but yon must let them go into the higher Coi room, which is occupied at present cxeiu- r.m siveiy by white children, there being three 0f schools in the building. Our secretary and , hjs treasurer and myself, as a member of the the Board, although but two, still we are sudl- fb clentlv numerous to make it evident that in m0 the composition of this board color was not 0f considered. As a member of the committee j,a, on examination i often have occasion to visit white as well its colored schools ; for the time to ( being I take the place of a teacher and there is no objection 1 hope from selGsh consid* tca eration nlone, if for no other, the Board will coj( sec til to pursue the-course which I propose. >)L. It is with no desire to stir sip embittered feelings that I oiTer this resolution On the res. tuiinarv, .1 is in me interest 01 economy, of reconciliation, and the highest educational interest of all concerned that 1 pursue thi; 1 course. I hope that this Board may be equal > der to the occasion, that you gentlemen mr.y rise this abore petty prejudice and pursue a manly bra course which shall reflect credit upon your- son selves and save monpy in thp interest of an eer already overtaxed community. No course j wli; other than the one which I advocate can be wa pursued which will sAve so much money for j ui . the taxpayers, anil at the same time improve can our school system. But I am met with the lioi objection that if the schools were mixed it i oflii would break up the white schools, that the bar: white children would not attend. Nothing sta could he more erroneous. Xosucheffect ha= five attended mixed schools in Boston, in Clove- wit hand, in Chicago, and in numerous other cities eha and towns which I might mention. Indeed, the they now have the finest schools in the i to world. The -.ame argument was advanced mu at every step of progress in the direction of ( human rights. The (lovernment would he upc destroyed if negroes should be allowed to hor Vrtte * Ct roi.l 1-'111 ...il ... mtioi "rtnen C. . '' ! they should be allowed to ride. But none of | W1 these woeful calamities have hefallrn us ; on the the contrary, each step of progress ha? ren- in s dercd our Government more firm and serure. ' acre Do not, I beseech you, commit the injustice , of consolidating schools far apart simply bo- ' * cause they are colored, and thus compel the c'0' colored children to walk long, weary miles, a T when a public school may be at their door. ,tUl Let us ralber pursue a course which is at r001 once economical and just; which Is far-reachIng, extending into the future, and which will forever prevent the establishment of two schools where one wiil he amply sufficient to *'e' accommodate all. The county Is represented _ ^ in the Legislature by colored men, and yet ' *>rJ their children are excluded from equal school '>ia' privilege in the District which their fathers otk' represent for no other reason than because they are colored. We ought to be able here 0 at the capital of the nation to pursue a differ-, ',UXI ent policy instead of being behind the sister- 1 cities in maintaining human rights. We ought ^ to set them a bright example. "e * In conclusion, Mr. Chairman, permit mc ; . ^ to say, in the interest of the already overta^ed citizens of the County cf Washing- ; ^ ton, that the poor colored child may not be 1 further outraged by being compelled to wait ' miles to school when a public 3chool is near j _ * at hand, that the Board may refiec: honor jaa on itself, I trust the resolution which I now j _ * offer will be adopted. . 1 ^ To out Representative* is the t' Legislature * ? < . ( Another week has passed away and not q one of the colored members cf the District q, j Legislature has nerved himself up to the q work of seeking the aboition of a school sv I -J.,. torn mat ;s the strong support of caste. The j vviti colored people are not alone to be benefitted ( a by the acceptance of the teachings of the to t Declaration of Independence, the white peo- nt ? pie also will come in for their full share, as justice is beneficial to all alike ; so our colored 1 members must know that in every effort they ter' make for equality before the iaw of all the ^',l citizens of the District that they are laboring ^r* for the good of the community. Two colored *ln men in the Council and five in the House of nnd Delegates ; surely out of this number one 1 -^cought to be found with spirit enough to bring ; ? it forwarJ a measure to secure simple justice to j "xa bis race Are we always as a race to rest ''p'p under the stigma of being too unmanly to j T assert our rights? We hope that some one t*1'*1 of the colored members of the present I.egis- J ,f'?' lature will make a move for free schools in ^ the capital of the nation. All over the roun- j PPr< try the people are galloping away from their , rPr' blind prejudices, the school-bouses are open- Pon ing to all citizens without distinction as to rec< race or color, while Washington is slumber- urpi ing on, surrounded and covered up with a T race hatred which oppresses one race and two converts into tyrants anotlier. Colored peo- ! rpP' pie elsewhere dare ask for their rights eveu where they have far less political influence ''ie than here ; arc we to be behind the colored j people all around u>> For the credit of the race will not some colored member of the wlu Legislature seek justice lor the children of bis race? _ j ej, IiIWMU?

You say of General Canby that a hue he w in command at Richmond Va., he "pernaiiy superintended the hanging of a white in up by the thumbs for kicking an insolent gro." "Now this is yottr verdict of ( anby's nduct, and the whole eJitorial vou have itten breathes so fiendish and brutal a irit as to make you unworthv of credit. Besides this, General Hill, the whole life General Canby gives the lie to your asserin that he did anything vulgar, inhuman, or becoming a high-toned soldier. Canby is a man of learning and ability and "a iristian gentleman as well as a model solsr. I am not prepared to deny that within inby's department a white man was tied up the thumbs. While he was commanding Richmond a negro, under the Constitution the United Statess as amended, which inhy was ?worn to support, was entitled to the rights and privileges of other citizens. ' a West Pointer and an officer of the lited State army before the war, you knnw at to tie a malefactor up hv the thumbs was ommon mode of punishment in the army, d Canby failed in his duty if ho made disiction between criminals on account of race color in meting out the pains and penals required by good order and military disdinp. While as a matter of form and duty, a dertment commander, Canby would approve f verdict of a military court inflicting 'list d necessary punishment upon criminals dating the laws it was his duty to enforce, was above being his own executioner, le management of the detaiis he left to a in of brutal instincts, like yourself. Vow, General Hill, while you arc- falsely "using General Canby of brutality, I prose to enlighten the public as to your miliry record. While in command in North .rolina, during the late war, twenty-six lite men were tried on the charge of being ,-al to the United States. Xo other offense is alleged against them. They were put trial late in the afternoon, and by the rdict of a drum-head court martial, acting 4er your orders, all were hung until dead fore breakfast the next morning, without nefit of clergy. Are you not a beautiful 3citnen to assail Canby on the score of itality0 I can think of nothing as su?mely ridiculous, unless it would be for you d your friend, Captain.Jack, to write a arise on civilization for distribution among ' i Ku-kiux of North Carolina. Indeed, if lid not know that you were in North Caroa, I should infer from the brutality of your tault on Canby, Thomas, and others that u were in the lava beds when it was writi, and that the article was the joint proction of yourself and Captain Jack. Tour assumption that the death of the ble George H. Thomas by apoplexy, and ? sudden deaths of Lincoln and other loyal ;n, are a retribution of the Aimlghly for : side they took in the late war, could be ipired only by the malignancy born of disposed ambition, and the spirit which ssessed the devil, the founder of secession imocracy, of a preference to ruling in hell serving Heaven. I am happy in the belief that many {hoards of the honest masses in Tennessee, >rth Carolina, and elsewhere, who were sled and coerced into rebellion by just such in as you, General Hill, now repudiate ur leadership and loathe your teachings. If I were disposed to imitate you, I could e a long list of men in civil aDd military ( supporting tiic rebellion who have come sudden, and, in many cases, dishonorable aths, but i prefer no: to do so. i"ou rejoice over my paralysis as a punishnt of God, because, as you say, i" cast lot with the Abolitionists." I recognise ; hand of God in my fase, but I regard m as interfering in my behalf Probably t one man in a thousand would survive ihe no ure and hardships to which I wa= subled while driven by rebe't cavalry into the mntains and incarcerated in a rebel prison mid-winter, Whiie I am now in improving filth, with a clear conscience, nearly all i men who were instrumental in my imsonment, and who insulted me while in son, are dead. Most of them died with irium trtm.cn', or in some other unnatural y, I would not parade their names before ; world, as you would ; for, when God lavs i hand on a man i take mine oa, and" I ntion the fact in defending myself from jr attack. [ have noticed that you and others, who ve assailed ( anby and Thomas sincc their ith, never insinuated a charge reflecting an their personal characters while they re living To make accusations against a n after his death which you dared not kejwhile he was living would indicate to preiudiced mind? that vou are falsifiers or ivards. \% to myself, i shall go on in the even lor of my way, and at the expiration of term in the Senate two years hence, I pect to revive the Knoxville Whig for ihe >ecial benefit of men of your stamp.

He was suspected once hy J. L. Devault, the railway agent that place, as a man who bad committed ne great crime, and who vaas dodging ough the country to avoid his pursuers. .

(HlUoriila. > OD A Terrible Vajrage. m A correspondent of the Truckee vC'al .i Hep-Mica ;, writing from Biue Canon, gives an account of an accident that came near an proving fatal, and which happened at Lost vn Camp Mines m Millie Coyan, aged about ten years, and daughter of George M. Coyan, genera! man- : ager of ail the mines in about Lost Camp, j [ was assisting some of her younger sisters j jn over the sluice boxes, iu the mine known as j )i)t Wood's Ravine, when she missed her footing I tiU and fell into the boxes, through which was i / j running at the time about five hundred jn, inches of water. She was swept for a dis- '0f tance of sixteen hundred feet through the u'p sluices as though she had been a feather. "I It appears that she passed through the boxes jjC in a sitting position, and during her terrible nir] race tried repeatedly to rescue herself from (ju what in ninety-nine cases out of one hun- .p, died would have proved fatal to the strongest (j; j man. Even while going at the rate of a railroad train the girl exhibited presence of mind enough to let her head fall back into the water, to escape a piece of wood that was nailed over the boxes, and against which, but for the precaution taken, her brains would ! a certainly have been dashed out. After be- j nr incr rfirrif>i1 n rtiGtnnrp of nine Wtin-Imrl f,,n* she was washed over the "dump," twelve s;t feet high, falling into another sluice bos, I ftn 'even hundred feet long. Passing through i (jr( the latter she was swept over another' ce] "dump," twenty feet high, falling among ' te] rough, jagged rocks. Here she managed to jJU crawl out a few feet from under the heavy '| . body of failing water, and was shortly after 1 jj'.' rescued by Mr Uartlett, foreman of the ; aa mine, it was found that she had sustained rfll severe injuries on the left knee, hip, and side. .w Her face was also scratched anil swelled, ^ but fortunately neither will permanently disGgure her. At present she is improving rap- 'W( idly, and it is hoped =he will entirely recover t"', from her injuries Her escape from a terri- jp hie death is considered by those who understand the peril through which =he passed, as ,0 something miraculous. hat the Colored ( itl.eu* Sitouia uo. no Ail should observe that the political leaven i( ' 1 s commencing to work as the September . ral election approaches. At Sacramento the l'l: L'nion and Jlecord newspapers are making ' ' great strategic movements and logical edi- "t' torial arguments as to the most available men for the United States Senate.

Organize in every town, ^a; city, or locality, whether the number be sniall or large, appoint a committee to wait n" on the legislature nominees and exact from a? them written pledges that they will, if elected, ov vote for the enactment by the I.egislature of an equal rights school bill without regard to -ve color.

They carried the county of San Francisco for tyrant and swelled the liepubli- at can majority in the State. The result is that '-:i their children are yet denied admiasiou to the common schools in Itepublican localities such J' as San Francisco, Sacramento, Stockton, and ku other places in the State, while Oakland has 'JU the independence to open her schools to col- Al ored children, not having the fear or iavor of p'j cnlorophobist before her eyes. j 011 We know of no Republican or independent cu newspaper in the State that has a word to oh say in reference to the delay of the supreme of Court on the school question mandamus case, 'ca and it must be inferred by colored citizens se< that ?uch paj>ers concur in the delay or desire w our defeat. to He who is not tor us t>v a ?tra<ghifor?a?d, u;i manly, open opinion, publicly expressed, on en any just principle, must certainly he viewed , v 1 and set down es against us in our efforts on tas behalf of equil school privileges.
