Other events connected with her single life had also Given her name considerable prominence and the false report that she had poisoned herself by an overdose of arsenic taken to beautify her complexion did not detract from the sensational Ohara oter of her life and death. The announcement of her death was made by her friends As that of Mana e.

Nelson Rose the first notice informed the friends of the deceased that her remains could be seen at her late residence no. 841 Broad Street from 8 to 10 of Olock this morning. Consequently before the first mentioned hour had arrived the late residence of deceased was literally besieged by friends and curious persons and by half past 8 of clock the throng mostly women had become so great that it was found necessary to summon assistance from the police in order that the crowd might be compelled to form an inward andean outward line and thus put a Stop to the crowding and disgraceful jostling which followed the attempt of hundreds to get through a narrow Hall at once. After officer Wyman arrived and took his position at the front door it was found necessary to forbid ingress to All until the crowd who had become packed inside the House could have an Opportunity to pass out. With much difficulty owing to the eagerness of the two or three Hundred women outside the door those Luride were enabled to get out and then the waiting throng which kept constantly Loreas ing were permitted to pass in walk around the Corpse which Lay in an upper room and pass out again by the same route which they entered Only keeping to the left and passing the in Comers on the right.

In this country it will reverse the political order of things so that instead of hearing and seeing a Man abused and denied the common rights of humanity simply because Hla skin was Black there shall he seen an increasing disposition to beseech and flatter him and there will be heard no More the brutal phrase that a a Nigger has no rights that a White Man is bound to the history of the coloured Man in the North is a patient hopeful amiable useful people ostracised and at Best treated with contumely. In the South it is summed up in one expressive word slavery that damning blot upon the fair Escutcheon of America which required the blood and sacrifices of the nation for four terrible years to wipe out and now that Drakes immortal line is a Verity that a a Freedom a Banner streaming Over us can be uttered by every inhabitant of this fair land who better privileged or More cordially approved in celebrating Universal suffrage than the devoted people for whom the great event evolved ? a Ethiopia shall now stretch her hands unto through the whips and scorns of time the Dusky children of Africa came Forth joyous and free to taste the ineffable a Lossong of american Liberty and right gladly in this City yesterday were the coloured citizens gathered upon the sunny streets to Manifest their Joy.
