And in thia we aro reminded of "a ttory" of an old colored ciiizeu, living tlien uot a tiiousand miles henee, whose son - a lad iu his teens - hnd been detected in tiiistaking somo one e property for liis own.

Tke Kcpublicim journals are pu' icg with a graat iIoul'ih of trumpets a finauciül etalcment hcaded "Democratie vi.

Iu witness of tho truth of bo'b assertions, we quoto the lollowing extract frona a letter addressed to ;. underliüg, Cuahles VV.
