Notwithstanding the adoption
and promulgation of the fifteenth
amendment, and the announcement
of the great event of the colored

gress, it is faintly whisjx'red that
Mrs. Grant objects to having
negroes at her drawing room re
ceptions. '"This is the most unkiud
est cut of all,'1 especially since it is
universally admitted that Wash
ington society lias, of late j-ears,
been very much mixed.
XTegroes black spirits and
white; red -spirits" have mingled
in the social gatlferfngs at Wash
ington ; have occupied private
boxes and the dress circle at the
theatres; were present at Col. For
ney's ball, and enjoyed the mazes
of the dance, the quadrilles and
polkas, with the utmost harmony
and eclat. It is unbecoming m
3i';-s. Grant to have such unbecom
ing and vulgar prejudice. St.
The positi on here assigned to Mrs,
Grant is the position really of
nine-tenths of tho wealthier liadi
eals, male and female. In their
elforts to promote the negro and
degrade, the whites, the radicals
have never for a moment intecdeu
;o make the negro the equal of j
tlie rich white man, or to force the
rich to recognise him as either
politk'al'v, socially, or otherwise
their asoc'te and equal. The
object at wiic1' the Radicals have
been aiming for the past ten years
vs to make the iu;':ro the equal,
and the rich negroes t.l,c superior,
of the poor whites. There h
nrobably not a white man
votes the Radical ticket, who ;vill
admit that the negro is the politi
cal or social equal of the rich while
man, and not a Radical who will
not toll you that the negro is, and
in .all respects should be, the equal
of the poor white man. In the
position that Mrs. Grant has taken,
she is sustained and endorsed by
her husband, the President, and.
all other rich Radicals. They feel
that the negroes are not fit to be
socially entertained by them, but
insist that poor white people have
no right to refuse to recognize the
negroes as their equals socially and
in "all respects, are I that the poor
whiles have no right to refu-e t
entertain negroes upon terms of
perfect epuahty at any and all their
social gatherings. Such is Radi
calism, and such have been the
purpose of the leaders of that
party for the past ten years.
The Pittsburg Gazette gives an
account of waltzing match which
recently took place at a ball in
that city: After general dancing
until midnight, twelve couples
took the floor to contest; for a prize,
a gold ring, to be' given to the
"lady1 who should out-waltz ail
competitors. After four hours
steady dancing, only two couples
remained on the floor. The '- f
acount closes as follows:
After live hours and three
minutes had 'elapsed, one of the
ladies fainted, her partner quickly
followed her example, and, amid
cheers, the prize was awarded to

lava cools at the sides and top,
protecting the hot stream beneatlf.
Finally the orifice becomes choked
with stones and cooling lava at the
eruptive point, and the lava Hows

nearly to the top of the cave. This
