It seems that the colored people ol Ypsilanti are very mucb incensed over the death of Jacob Griffim, and have held an indignation meeting. Ia a report of this meeting the Ypsilantian says: "Mr. Davie, however, tells ns that the imtemperate counsels wepe not approved by the majority, and tfaat they only desire a legal ki-estigattan, to ascertain if Griffin was ustiiiably treated. That, he Baya, was the actiom oï the meeting, taking meaeures to employ counsel to test the matter. If they need sucli au investógation, they certainly ought to have i't; tut it will be unt'ortunat-e itf it sliall prove that the best class of colored people in the ciity are eo nsensible to the enorcnity of his crimes as to enlist to behalf of such an unspeakable beast as Griífiin has proved to have been, or so incajpable of appreciating the force of evidence as to question hte guilt."
