"Rowdy" Notions of Emancipation. "The mob on the corner, below my house, had hung up a negro to the lamp-post. In mockery, a cigar was placed in his mouth. For hours these scared negroes poured up twenty-seven street, passing my house. One old negro, 70 years old, blind as a bat, and such a cripple that he could hardly move, was led along by his equally aged wife with a few rags they had saved, trembling with fright, and not knowing where to go."—Manhattan's letter in the Standard, July 30th.
