lilerestini mi Curious Revelations About
the Character of the Negro Senator.
Letter from John H. Morris, Colored, of
Leavenworth, Kansas.
Leavenworth, February 14. 170.
To the K.liior of the Louisville Courier
Journal :
My attention has been called to an
article in your issue of the :kl under
the ion deplume of "A Colored Man,"
in which the writer lauds II. R. Rev
els and gros-iy slanders me.
In consequence ol an old quarrel,
and that strange freak ol fortune, the
election of Revels to the Senate, I am
called upon to endure private slander
and public deti-acliotl.
This 1 must endure in silence, after
having been vindicated in a court of
justice, or, oy a puonc oeieuse, place
niysc-lt in seeming antagonism to my
race and party.
Self-preservation is the first law of
nature, and no good cause can be
served by sacrificing an honest man to
gloss the crimes of a notorious scoun
drel. Aud uow for this adventurous
ass w ho volunteers a gratuitous kick.
Mr. "Colored Man,'' why do you,
like a skulking savage, shoot your
poisoned arrous of detraction at me
from behind the covert of a non de
Own thy name and face me in the

" Morris is as keen as a Damascus
blade, as vindictive as a Caiuanche, as
unrelenting in pur-uit of his object as
a sleuth-hound. He attacki-d Revel's
private character, his family relations,
his standing as a minister, from the
stump andthrough the powerful in
strumentality Ol the press. Revels
bore it until forliearance ceased to bo
a virtue, when he appealed to the law.
But he gt no redress, for the jury was

As a general and comprehensive de

" We, the uuder-igned, were jury
men la the case of the .State of Kansas
vs. John 11. Morris, in which one
Hiram R. Revels was complaining

the Sijid Revels in the form of a crim

in charging the said Revels with em

" The defendant (Morris) took the
ground that the alleged libel was true,
and proved to cur satisfaction that
the said Hiraia 11. Pfcewsjs had em
liezzled certain lunds belonging to his
church, and has been guilty of false

a quarrel on the said Morris, thus
compelling him to act in vindication

It is a peculiarity ot this case that

Improbable. The thoughtful reader
win ask, how could any man of com

rel and then appeal to a court or, in
olliT words, how did it come to pass
tliat I accused him of stealing, and
yet he " unnecessarily forced a tpuarrel
upon Morris'."
My answer is that Revels ha so
common sense: that he is the strang
est compound of unditfuant cunning
and plausible depravity that 1 ever 1
1 have for vears helped the church
in her financial operations, and had
handled thousands of dollars of her
funds. I commenced to suspicion
Revels, and foared to be impinged
with him, and 1 own to a little preju
dice against sasaMag,
I exprcsv-d my suspicions privately
to a few, trot did not accu-e. Hearing
of this. Revels asked for an interview,
which took place in me presence 01

iuterview ReveLs evinced a very con- :
eiliaiorv disjiosition, owmil that he
had miule mLsstateiuenUs ulniut the

had thus rendered himself liable to

tiulvocallv disavowed my suspicions:

that he thought me estopped by my

latter, who was drunk, went out to
the diainai meaa and returned with a
carving knife, with which he very
nearly cut off Madame Lombart's
head. The husband, unable to stir
from his chair, saw his wife murdered
almost within anil's length of him.
When she was quite dead, Francois
rushed tw the kitchen, where he found
the cook and a little boy from the por
ter's lodge below stairs. Their creaui3
brought to the spot the porter's wile
and the cook of the Viscountess de
Pits James, a lady living in the -iinf
house. The latter woman attempted
to disarm Francois, but he disabled
her by inlla'ting a very severe wound
in her throat. The concierge then fled
with her SOB, and taereaSMMS the man
struck with the knife at his fellow
servant. She, instinctively putting
her hands to protect her head, u--eeived
a telllMS wound on her wri-t,
the hand being nearly cut off. Ths
neighbors speedily called in the po
lice, and the eaaSsla was arrested.

Wfman Suffrage.
In two Territories Wyoming and
Utah we have woman suffrage a re
ality; and of these two triumphs the
latter is infinitely the more import
ant. There arc very few women In
Wyoming, but in Cfah they outnum
ber the men. - We repeat, therefore,
says the New York 'Jimer, our sug
gestion of the other day, that a great
work is open to woman's suffrage at
the very outset. We have often been
promis..! that the women of Utah
would throw off their present degra
dation by tho aid ol the haliot. Now,
Mr. Cuilom's bill contemplates the
employment of forty thousand sol
diers or lees to put down polygamy ;
what if fcrty thousand women or less
anticipate lilm, and put dowu polyga
my by the ballot instead of the bullet?
The result of the first experiments in
women's voting will be watched for
with the greatest interest and curi
osity. Another trial for murder iias taken
place at Paris. The victim in this
case was a dealer in and, named Del

prisoner, and the two men lived on
bad terms, Rerlon constantly fearing
that all his mother's property would
be squandered by Delhor. Another
cause ot jealousy was that they wa
in the same trade. On the 1-Mh of Oc

Prm the New York World of the Wth.
Havana, February 10. No arrests
have as yet been made of the volun
teers who on Muuday murdered Mr.
Isaac Greonwald, aud so severely
wounded the two American citizens,
Hugh Johnson and TnomasK. Foster,
aud 1 still believe none will ever bo

brought to justice, but, instead of be

opposed by the majority of 'them. lie
har offered a reward of $10U0 for the
arrest of the man who first assaulted
Mr. Grecnwald, I Hit has neglected to
put in hU description of the man that
be wore upon his hat the cockade of
the volunteers, an omission that in
part justifies the volunteers in screen
ing their guilty companion.
As Mr. Greenwald has left a wife
and seven children in New York city
in rather straightened circumstances,
Geueral Rodas has contributed !,000
toward tneir assi-tancc, ami the 'i. i.,
Kspanat has started a sulwcription to
trehlo t ae sum, for there Ls a minority
of highly respectable Spaniards who
deeply regret the murder as well as
all the otaer lawless and bloodthirsty
proceedings of the volunteers. And
well they may ! The more the atlack
ol last buuday upon our countrymen
is sifted, the worse it appears.
The afaaaah) af Forbyn Jauson, the
French Consul General here, was pass
ing near by in hLs carriage, as the vol
unteers were engaged in their bloody
ware ite tried to save Mr. r oster,
who stepped toward the carriage, but
was brought down to the ground, by a
couple of bayonet stabs from as many
infuriated volunteers, before he could
reach the Consul. Mr. Jauson Sarys
the whole affair was of the most dis
graceful, outrageous unci unjustifiable
nature on the part of the volunteers,
and other witnesses, including the es
timable lady of the British Consul
General, repent the statement.
But worse than the murder, or at
least meaner and more scandalizing,
Ls the after proceedings of some of tne
Spanish officials. Mr. Greenwald's
lifeless remains were first taken to tlie
office of the Aleade of the Taron
Ward. There the official mentioned
declared he must have a sort of au
topsy of the body held, liefore it could
be delivered up to hLs friends. These,
of course, had to agree to this, hut be
fore departing from the office notified
the Aleade that the body was wanted
for embalmment, to be afterwards sent
to New York. The Aleade made no
reply, which was ominous of what
was to occur. When the friends re
turned for the body they were sur
prised to learn that it had already
been buried. They thereupon asked
for a permit to disinter the body, but
this was bluntly refused, and they had
to report the c.tse to Captain-General
l'.txbLs, and get an order from his Ex
cellency to the Aleade before the latter
would give the permit. Then at the
cemetery the priest in charge in
in charve in his
! tur" tec'ame au obstacle, refusing to
consent to the disinterment, so that
Gawul Bsdaa had again to be applied
On Tuesday the body was disinter
red, and thei Mr. Gratia waHFs Mends
were horrified not only at finding the
body b;iried in that p.irt of the grave
yard reserved to paupers and male
factors, but that it had been burii
uncqrffned and ftarc naked. When
murdered, Mr. Greenwald had on new
and fineclothing. This had all been
stolen by the Spaniards, :;nd akrfowl-
age of this fact no doubt wai what
impelled the Aleade and the priest to
so strenuously oppose the -disinterment.
I understand that nearly all the per
sons murdered of late by the volun
teers have been interred like Mr.
Greenwald hurriedly, among crim
inals, uncoffined and naked. As the
American citizen, Vicente Daumy,
murdered on the '2d, is of the number,
his case, Joi tied to that of Mr. Green
waid, should at once induce the
American government to exact expla
nations from (hat ot Spam as to thi-se
disgraceful, horrible proceediug-. Mr.
(in-euwald's body having been em
balmed, leaves to-lay per steamer
Bienville for New ork, wle-re, let
me hope, the Americans will turn out
in mass at his funeral as a pmtest
against the outrageous conduct of the
Havana volunteers and certain Span
ish officials.
! Captain Parker says that eut In
: dignation was o pressed bv all classes
j of persons in Havana at the perpe
ftrators of the crime. The firm which
employed Mr. Greenwald say that his
tamily shall never suffer Irom poverty,
and there ls no doubt that although
Mr. Greenwald's ikiuily can never be
comforted for hisloss,it will be placed
beyond the reach uf want.
