cor g'.omt ration of diseases result

thia city some time ago in order to se
cure the good offices of the Tenneeeee
delegation towards getting eome p'ace
in toe service of the government
which wonld not require mrjcb work
and would furnish him with the means
of subsidence in bis declining years.
He bas been in very reduced ciicum

negro wonld probably have received
some Binecure bad not death stepped
in and relieved bim from future care.
His hibtory is intimately connected
with that of President Poik,
whom be followed and served
faithfully during all bis cam
paigns, both of a State and nationol
ohuftcter. It w 11 be remembered
tba. bis fdthf aJneis lo Polk and his
s aunch Deojoerncy neaily coat him

Oaio with his m astir. He was one of

his former master and owner. Ha has

' A ihrewd crse of pretty fraud prac'
l ed upon theto- ton Chamber of Com
msree bas been brought to the n tice
if the Ptstoihce Departmeot, and Is
canBing some merriment among the
cllcials. Early in the recent month
the pnatdentof the Chamber received
a letter purporting to have been writ
ten by Cora E. Walker, of Cape Gir
ardesn, Mo., in which she represented
herself a? but 14 years o! eie, her
father dead, htr mother au invalid,
and that she had tbreo younger broth
ers. She besought the Chamber ef
Commerce to contribute a few dollars
to add to her savings to purchase a
sewing machines to enable her to sup
pott her fami!y. She gave a reference
io Albert Wilinont, requesting the re
mittance to be sent to bin. Tbe story
enlisted the sympa'hy of tbe Cham
ber. Wilmont was telegraphed to. and
answered that Cora waa truthful, in
dustrious and the eole support of an
invalid mother and three younger chil
dren. Tho Chamber contributed more
than double the amount asked and it
was sent in a money order to Wil
mont's carp, but the S ecretary in re
mi ting piu ientiy made inquiry of the
postmaster at CJ pa Giraidcau, wbo
replied that Cora waa a myth and
Wi'.mont a fraud, and that he had pre
sented the order with Cora's name
forg-d thertt , for which he bad bean
placed under arrest. He farther
staled that Wilraont had scut the
ssrr.e pathetic appeal to various boards
of trade, tewing machine companies
and benevolent eorieties, but the Bos
tonians wne the flr-it to respond wiih
the cash. The Postmaster General has
forbidden the payment of tbe order
and directed the return of the money
to the remitt.r.
