White Southern children receive financial aid from the people of Baltimore. Only white children are receiving aid for better education while no advancements are being made for black children.


More Aid for the South.-The noble people of Baltimore are getting up a society to assist in the education of the white children of the South, as well as to furnish the needy with food. Charleston has been selected as the place for the first school. It is estimated that $12,500 per annum will pay for educating five hundred children, and for clothing, caring for, and educating, one hundred more. The Charleston people are expected to contribute liberally towards the same objects.
