colored people of Louisiana, setting forth that
in view of the fact that prominent colored men
have not received adequate recognition at the
hands of the national administration that the
colored men should make a manly and de

In conclusion the address says Dark and
discouraging as the prospect may look there is
room for hope if we don't scatter and become
demoralized. We therefore, with the best in
terests of ur race and people in view, appeal
to all colored men to view our situation, and
do his utmost to secure unity among our peo

prevail our people may profitably accept the
situation, and so pass through the present or

upon a new era and higher plain, both of ob

JOHN H. WHIPPLE.
A Letter Found Ion th* BodyAttempt to
Rob the Qrave.
|Louisville Special (Aug. 8) Chicago Tribune.]
When the coroner visited the grave of
young Whipple to-day, it showed signs of
having been tampered with by the ghoula
who supply subjects to medical colleges.
The earth had been removed and the coffin
broken. The body was still there, its de
composed state sending away even body
snatchers. The face was black, the eyes
protruted, and, affected by the exposure to
the air after having been in the water, a
disgustingly horrible sight was presented.
The body was not removed, and will remain
until the arrival of friends of the deceased
from Minnesota. Advices say the aged
Bishop is prostrated by the news of his
son's shocking death.
Among the papers discovered on the body
of young Whipple, found floating in the
Ohio river at Louisville, was the following
letter, dated at Chicago, but which, it seems,
had not been mailed
DEAR DOC Brace up and pull down your
vest. Just got back from Colhseum, where I
saw the big 8 dance again. I am plump broke
up here, and can't make up my mind what to
do. I went up in Mike McDonald's here lat
night and bucked the tiger, and came out 300
cases the best. I shall probably go to San
Francisco Thursday with a friend, by the Bur
lington & Quincy, via Union Pacific. He IB
going to start anew livery and sale stable, has
got lots of dust, and some to give away on
your humble servant. You can bet your life I
will stay with him. I have been up to see my
wife, and of course she was glad to see me.
Best regards to all. Your friend,
Chicago, 111, Grand Pacific.

Letter from a Vtctim.
To the Editor of the Globe
The gambling hells of St. Paul should be
looked after by the authorities of the city, bv
which they are well known. It is a disgrace to
the city to allow them to play their
business. I will not at the time
name location, but if it becomes necessary the
location will be named. The location is well
known to the police of the city, and hence jus
tice demands their close.
