It is safe to predict that the wonderful improvements already made in St. Peter Claver’s Church by Fr. Emery since his arrival are but the prelude of the transformation that he will accomplish among the 80,000 colored people of this diocese, w-ith the help of God and the co-operation of his brother oblates. as well as that of the true friends of the colored people at large.

FiBandally matters stand about the same as when the article wa.s penned— a aonstant struggle to make both ends meet—but the work has come to stay and all It needs is some assistance to maitttain it. In every ather respect, the work ha* progressed remarkably. THE SCHOOL» have been equipped and fitted np at a considerable cost, while new methods of teaching, better adapted ta the temperament of the colored race, have been adopted and are now followed with great «access. THE COMMUNITY of the Servants of the Holy Ghost, for the colored people, founded by Mrs. Murphy, ha* received eptacopal sanction and, though so far but the ‘•little flock” of the gospel, it Is nevenheless osnoillcally erected.

It is enough to see those holv souls Boston, February 7. Editor of The Pilot—Being a stranger in your city, I hope you will excuse the liberty I take in addressing this letter to you. Passing the Old South Church this afternoon, 1 saw a notice on the doors to the effect that Bishop Potter, who, as j’ou know, is the Protestant Episcopal Bishop of New York, w'as to speak there. Knowing him by reputation as a hater of everything Catholic, I went in to hear and see him. I listened to his explanation of the object of the African Colonization Society, of which he is the president. As the son of an Irishman, my blood boiled at hearing this—Balfour—in a brutal way—all the more brutal because of the cool manner of his delivery—tell the colored people who were present that the white race was the dominant race, and they the Inferior race; and that he thought it w'ould be better for them to go to Uberia, because here they would never l>e socially recognized, Mr, Editor, surely this is not right. If Boyle O’Reilly were alive he surely would answer this man, wrho appears to be bereft of all the finer feelings that a ChrtHtlan should have for a race who have beeu so cruelly used by the Bishop’s ‘‘dominant race.” He says he came to Boston to get the approval of its citizen^, be‘ause lu what Boston leads the other cities will follow. Surelj' the home of the men like Garrison, Chaiiiiing and I’hlllips w’lll not approve of this plan. An ohi gentlem.'tn (colored)—I think he sjild his name was Downing—got up uiul answeriHl the Bishop. He s;iid he would stand on his manhood, and dc-niíHl tliat the colored race were inferior to the white race, either raonilly or sfdritujilly, and that he tx'licved that in the mysterious (Hspeusalloii of Providence, the oolort*d race w'ere to teach tbelr white brethren Christianity. Ills voU*e ami manner w'ore ebniiient; such eloquenc»*, I think that John Bojde O'Reilly would have love<l. IxM>kiug at the I’ilot of Septeml>or 17. 18i)0, a colort*d man. C. H.K. No»*gruts, asks:    ‘‘Whom    shall wo, the sous of Ethiopia, put in the place of John Boyle O’Reilly? • • • Many are the good oflicee he has done for the people of Massachusetts, esi>ecially the sable man,” And I ask you, Mr. E<lltor, can’t something bo done by the Pilot for the colored people In rebuking this man, who may cause a rupture between tlA two races? From your issue of February 3, 18i»4, 1 learn that Archbishop Ireland was the guest of honor of oiilore<l Catholics in St. Paul, Minn. He said: “Thl.s is their country- Those who suggest other countries for them or their colonization in other countries, deserve n*buke.” What a dlffereuco betwei*n the Catholic and the Protestant Bishop! I will look for something from you in your issue of next week. Hoping you will pardou me for this, I am yours n*-spectfully, J. E. M< DERMOTT. offer land to one hundred colored families at a low price, with long time of payments, in some favored locality. 2. The first settlere shall have a chance to earn their holdings by clearing the forests, or preparing the farm for the rest of the colony. 3. No saloon or intoxicating liquors will be allowed or sold in any of the villages of these colonies. 4. The association will set money apart to build a church, priest’s house, primary and industrial schools. 5. If a man leaves the colony, he must give up the title of- the land for the price of his Improvement, said price to bo established by a committee of three, one selected by the owner of the contract, and one by the colony, and these two will select a 'third. 6. After ten years the society ISien-titled to dispose of the remaining lands to any purchaser. Therefore be it Resolved, That the Colored Catholic Congress of America now in session, recommend the above manner of colonization to their owTi race apd the friends of it. M. J. BYRNE, R. D., Danville, 111. SEEK THEIR FOOD AT NIGHT. the salvation of the Negro lies within the pale of the Catholic Church. I liad the pleasure of taking dinner with the reverend gentleman on last Thursday. Syracuse can boast of a number of colored Catholics, most of them belonging In St- Mary and St- John’s parishes. I also notice, since being in the State, additional recognition of the Negro in public places. Here there are now two letter carriers. On last Tuesday a german was given by the best circle of colored people at Freeman’s Hall. The affair was elegant In aJl its bearings and reflected great eredlt on the management, Messrs. Charles Jefferson, Randolph Robinson and Vaugh having charge of affairs. Of course, an Ohioan was supposed to be the belle of the occasion, Mrs. Fanny Bums, nee Gilbert, formerly of Cincinnati- The C^athoUc Sun of this place is a very bright paper and is deserving of its great success; it is nm by a stock company. On March 11 the Robert Emmet celebration will be held, for which great preparations are being made- 'The Hon. John F. Fin-erty. of Chicago, will deliver a lectnre on “Irish Music and Song;” Mr. M. J. Murphy, of Bay City, Mich., will sing a number of Irish melodies. I had a pleasant conversation with the Rt. Rev. Bbihop Lndden, in which he showed that he was deeply Interested in the colored people, and extended them a cordial invitation into the fold of the Catholic Church. .T. R. R.

This paper wa.s read at Chicago last September, and scut us recently by its author for publication: To the Colored Ck> now in session; Gentlemen-You have asked industrial equality for your people. The first of all Industries is farming. It is the best morally and physically in which man can engage. It settles tlie peo|)le in the country, making them ow’uers of the soil. It makes them as free and Independent as God made man. By the organization of colonies land has been procured for nominal prices to almost every class of people. And all those colonies which have been organized, on business principles, have thriven and been a success. Thus tracts of 20,000 acres scattered throughout the coimtry have been secured for the colonization of other people, who would settle on the land, and they have come and they own the land, and they do the business; and even thn ooimty offices _wbere they live. They are happy and contented. Such are the colonies of Archbishop Ireland In the north, and the Greely colonies in Nebraska, of which, latter, the Hon. William J. Onahan is the secretary! and a justly proud one. Find $‘20,0()0 to secure the land—organize on proper ba.sis. Small payments, 5 per cent interest, long terms. Do not give the land as to paupei*s. That degrades and humbles people, but make a contract wdth them, as follows: If they stay on the land for a number of years, they will obtain a deed. The only condition is that they reside on and Improve the land. The only reserve made is to keep the land for the negro alone until they are numerous enough to form a parish. Therefore the land must not be sold to speculators of any kind, but must be desired for the proper use and the benefit of the negro. Give the negro a chance on the land. They never had a fair show in good places. And we will see that they will prove themselves worthy of the trial. In other places it has been done and proved a success. We spend thousands in establishing orphanages for colored children. I.«et us establish the colored people on the land and the necessity of the orphanage will cease. As a proof of this let us look at the colored people of Soirth America In our country. They colonize even the barbarians. Surely our negro Is a better subject than they, and we can give the land to the American negro. SnfCHresliona about OraranlBlnK a Catbollc Colony for Ooloretl People. 1. 'Fhe object of this movement is to Prowllag Anlm»l« Mhloh Keep Lete Honre In the Tropical Connfcrtee. Ln tropical countries, where the struggle for life seems to rage even fiercer than In the temperate regions, a vast number of animals have been driven by want to seek their livelihood in the dark, through stress of competition. The Cornhill Magazine mentions the howler monkeys, for example, who maao night hideous in large tracts of South American forests, beginning their dismal music as soon as evening sets in and only retiring for the day as dawn purples the horizon. There are the lemurs of Madagascar, so called because, like ghosts, they walk by night and withdraw at cockcrow—strange; stealtliy. noisele.-'s creatures, with great, wistful, poetical eyes and enlarged pupils: monkeys that prey on birds and insects in the gloomy depths of their native foresta There is the slender loris, a graceful and beautiful beast, with eyes like a gazelle's, but treacherous manners, who pounces upon birds as thsy sleep in their little nests,creeping silently upon them from behind liks an Indian upon the warpath,and affording no indication of his hateful presence till he is within arm’s reach^ of his slumbering victim. There is that curious little nondescript animal. the aye-aye, who attracted so muoh attention a few years ago at the zoo—a quaint, small beast, half monkey,half rodent, who comes forth at night in search of fruits or iasects and crawls through the woods with catlike pace upon butterfly' and caterpillar. And there is that other connecting link, the galeopithecus, or *‘flying monkey”—a lemur well on its way to develop into a bat, apelike in form, but with a membrane stretched loose between his arms and legs after the rudimentary fashion of the flying squirrel,by means of which he glides from tree to tree with a sort of half jump, half flight, very curious to witness. These are but a few of the nocturnal mammals of the monkey and lemur type, ancient ancestors of our own, gone wrong through keeping such very late hours, and now stranded for the most part in islands or peninsulas of extreme antiquity. ARIZONA. Th« Spaniard#’ Name for a Tnbe of Big-Nosed Indians. The southwestern portion of what is now the United States was originally inhabited by a tribe of natives noted far and wide for their prominent beak-like noses; and. although nature had been extremely lavish in her gifts when she conferred nasal appendages upon these queer abor-ig^ftg. they souiarht to enlarge those organs by piercing the vertical septum or gristle between the nostrils, and wearing enormous ornaments therein. One division of this big-nosed tribe would wear a ring hammered from native gold or silver; another an ornamented shell, while a third were content with a sharp stick driven through the cartilage in such a mauner as to permit of the ends projecting several inches to the side of each nostriL To the early Spanish invaders these queer but harmless creatures wore known as “The Big Nosea” In tbe Spanish language “nose” is nariz. My authority says: In that language you can also express a diminutive or an augmentative by a termination to the name word. Thus, narizlto would mean “a little nose,” and narizón “a great big nose.” The feminine of narizón would be narizona. The “n” having been eliminated by usage and time, we have the name as it stands to-day—Arizona. In much the same manner the state of Oregon receives its name from a tribe of Indians noted for their enormous ears. They pierced the auricle and enlarged the lobe much in the same manner that the Narizons enlarged their noses. In th© Spanish, “ear” is oreja. Now attach on the augmentative to the word oreja, leaving off the flnal a from the word meaning ear, and we have Orejón. Time, which, like carq, will kill a cat, has changed the “j” \,o “g” ánd given us the word “Orfjgon.”’ AMONG THE FINNS. Soma Qaalnt Castoras of Their Dalljr Life In Jj-vaskalR. The station at which the steamer halts in Finland consists of only a few wooden houses, but the passengers who come and go are well-clothed, prosperous-looking and often quite smartly clad. Their politeness is admirable, and as they part, one peasant bows to another with a courtly grace. In this respect, however, they are not superior to that patient and good soul, the Russian moujick, whose simple and unaffected politeness leaves nothing to be desired, says the National Review. The same cannot be said of his sobriety. Here the Finlander stands a world apart. The latter goes to his plain, unadorned Lutheran church on Sundays in his best black coat, and outwardly, at any rate, keeps his religion for the Sabbath. The Russian is forever bowing and crossing himself before gilded pictures of Our Lady and the saints and is continually passing in and out of the ever-recurring Byzantine churches, the cupolas of which rise from the vast plains of his native land like mushrooms from a marsh. Whether this be religion or superstition I leave to wiser heads to decide, but it is beyond doubt the greatest centripetal and eccentric force in Russia. The Russian again is often in the liquor shop, but the Finn generally has no liquor shop to which to go. Within twelve hours after leaving Lahtis the handsome wooden houses of Jyvaskulaand its two very tolerable stone churches crown a gentle eminence at the head of lake Paianne. One gentleman alone in this little town speaks English; no one speaks Russian. The only linguist, the captain of the steamer, hospitable and kindly, arranges for bed and board in a house of spotless cleanliness, the linen of which would have done credit to a Parisian laundress. The beds at first sight are rather a puzzle. They are all the same size, shape, height, and never more than three feet long. Luckily, at nightfall, or rather at bedtime, few just now there is no night, they discover a capacity for being extended to double their original length. The table at breakfast is spread with anchovies, butter, bread,cheese, bologna sausages, slices of cold beef, radishes in and out of milk, collops of salmon, and bottles of schnapps and vodkL This, with one hot dish to follow, forms the usual breakfast, and with the additions of soup and pudding, the ordinary dinner of Finland. The hotel has a telephone. Another Victory. It is related of George Clark, the celebrated negro minstrel, that being examined as a witness, he was severely interrogated by the attorney, who wished to break down his evidence. “Y^ are in the negro mlnfttrel business, I believe?” inquired the lawyer. “Yes, . sir,” answered George promptly. “Isn’t that rather a low calling?” demanded the learned counseL “I don’t know but what it is, sir,” replied the minstrel, “but it is so much better than my father’s that I am rather proud of it.” The Way to Famo. Wibble—You saw the fellow who drove our car? You may not believe me, but his humor has been published and illustrated in half the papers of the country. Wabble—You don’t say?

THE NEWSBOY. He Toaohed the Syrapathlea of Peopls and Sold Hln Whole FUe. A pale-faced bali-starved boy eama into a Buffalo restaurant about 7:80 o’clock at night. He carried a tew appers under his arm. Ho looked cold. His shoes were out at the toes and his stockings had holes in both knees.. He had n<» overcoat, and he stood shivering at the door for a moment, as if undecided what to do. Then be walked timidly over to the cashier and said: “Please, mum, kin I see if ennybody wants t’ buy a poiper?” The cashier was about to refuse him when the little fellow spoke again:    “Please, mum, lemme. Me fadder won’t lot me cum home till I sell all dese -poipers an* trade’s dead rotten on d’ street Please, mum,, kin I?” There were tears in his voice, and the cashier relented. She gave him a penny and bought a paper herself and then told him to go to the tables if he wished. The little fellow took offihis cap and tucked it under his ajihEL Ho walked down between the tables and said in a weak little voice: “l^qipers! Ennybody want t’ buy a ^tóper?” There were not many resxmuses to this appeal and he began a personal canvass. Stopping at a table where a middle-aged man and his wife were eating, he said:    “Please, sir, wonchu buy a poiper? Me fadder’ll lick mo ’f I don’t sell all dese, an* dey ain’t no chanst on de street Please, sir, buy one, wonchu?” “Buy a paper, John.” said the woman, and the man gave the boy ten cents and took one of the little bundle. Then he went to the next table and the next and the next and all down the room. He told his tale of woe so well that beiore he had reached the end of the room he had sold every one. He had a handful of small change and he pulled his cap on his head and started for the door on a run. “What a pity it is,” said the middle-aged woman, “that fathers are so brutal and that such small children have to toil so hard to support them in idleness.” The small boy bolted out of the door and straight across the street Here another small boy met hijn. “Hey, Chilmmie!” said the second small boy, “did’t work?” “Betcher life,” replied the first small boy, exultingly, “an’ I got. ’nuff t’ buy two seats in de gallery fer d’ minstrels.” Taelr Exlatenoe Is MonotonoaK The avid curiosity of institutional children, hungry for something better than daily dull routine, is sometimes a bit embarrassing to the wanderer about town. A man paused the other day before a charity school to ask a business address of a child, and at once found himself surrounded by an eager little flock, all chattering at once in small harsh voices, all ready with the desired information, each full of conteinpt'for the other’s knowledge.
