The fruit Tastes Bitter.

--Why should the people of Chicago permit themselves to be indignant when the legitimate fruits of the ‘"irrepressible conflict"’ are offered to their lips? The fruit may, it is true, be yet not fully ripe; but it will be in time, not only in Chicago, but in all the large cities North and West.

Strange, however, that the seeds sown in the Chicago Platform should first blossom in the very heart of that city. Their Upas branches will soon spread further, until Northern society will become as motley-colored as the natives of the Isthmus of Darien. Manassas will forever stand as a wall of adamant between the South and the amalgamationists.

The following is from the Nashville Gazette:

‘ "The Board of Education of Chicago have determined to admit negroes into the Common Schools of the city, as teachers and pupils.--Their action is regarded with great indignation by the people of Chicago."
