A CHARACTER! iIC EPISTLE.
In a proceeding letter I exposaUd to
the scornful Indlguaucy of the rospeotful
people of these) precincts, the baseful and
ignnrical T, J. Hhores, and how does he
project his resentment? Llko the cow
arduous and dumbolical Imposture that
hols, hosecrolates himself behind tho
skirts of a poor Ignorous and aulmosuous
wench and puts calomclles in her mouth
which he Is afraid to cjoct in his own
personality. But tho baseful and lustrous
skulker shall bo drug from them skirts
and receivo bin Justful deserves at tbo
. hands of cxasplatcd Justice.
What T. J. Shores says, by tho mouth
of an irrigated wenah, of Jacob Bradley,
is not the matter in issuance. But by his
own mouth and in my presents I deify
T. J.' Shores to rcpltato them. If ho is
a man of sablllty ho will come
out from Sarah Hopkln's skirts and
fao mo llko a man; but If he has falsi
cated my repetition, as ho knows he has,
ho will again wrap himself up ,in dirty
calico aud Implicate a displcaclous
wench to mouth his slanders.
I have said that T. J. Shores has two
living wives, both living. He lias not
deuuueiated tho charge I now say that
his son Joseph us Shores, attempted a
monstrollc raneical wrongncss upon a
white lady near Champaign, and tho
exasplated public seized the wretch and
deprlvated lilin of his maufulucss. Seo

T. J. Shores has borrowed money from
poor, hard working colored cirls, aud In
nulled them when they explored hint
for Its roturnraont. J'or this dastardous
proceeding the husband of ono of tho
glrjf projects no money Into Shores'
church box, aud others pronouueo him to
his face as a theftu.tH cheater.
In Champaign, Shores was made the
guardian nnd protector of a family of
orphan miners. They had property, but
Shores controverted it all into money,
or appllrated it to his own purpoilcatlous
so that the poor black children, which
ho projects bo great a friendliness for,

go back to every place where he has beeu
and be received with franteruntlvo do

his old vlclnudcs ho will bo called upon
to expatiato tho criminous execssence
that demands rectlfaction and antona

aud should take from him his permitago
to dessecate the sacred desk. Knowing
tho slnuousnessof tho net, ho married
