A letter written by 11. Revels, the
colored ex-senator of Mississippi, ad
dresssd to President Graut and recently
published, is a most wholesome rebuke
toSenator Morton and all his follower
In and out of congress. Revels was the
predecessor or Senator Alcorn in the
United States senate and Is now engaged
In tlx tnintstery In Mississippi. He re
view the course or tlte Republican party
in me state; how by worklug on the Ig
norance oi me blacks, the 'unprincipled
nu'wittires who represented that partv
mid who c.vi nothing for the country,
were willlug to voV to ...
tiling, no matter how lum
inous, to secure power to themselves and
perpetuate it." How these adventurers
kept their power l)y inducing the colored
voters, In the all-potent name ot Repub
licanism, to systematically vote for no
toriously corrupt and dishonest candi
dates. "My people are naturally Repub
lican," says Mr. Revels, "but ug they
grow older lu freedom so do they lu wis
dom," and the unconsciousness of his
sarcasm render It none the less pointed.
Mow the corruptions of the Republican
ofHciats finally aroused the whole people,
Including the wlidom-galnliig blacks, to
k determined and united effort, ami
how It became not a contest between par
Um, but a battle between the people aud
s bonk f corrupt, greedy, and thieving
omciaii. now tno bitterness engendered

Jwtyi fouid oil the side opposed to tho
fQfm wu not kept ullve the bitterness
t Um pant by Ineulcatlng leisout of
hatred between flic race lor the sake or
personal aggrandizement, and conclude
his letter M follows :
If the Stato administration had nil-

only honest and competent men to olllce,
and sought to restore confidents bet ween

Thl letter is worthy the marked con
sideration of Senator Morton and his
coadiutore. It contain the .sentiment
ol n resident of MIsilMippl, who has
a triple claim on the. confidence of the
man who 'Introduced a bill Into the
