TranscriptHON H.R. REVELS. -- We have it on
undisputed authority that Hon. H.R.
Revels, the colored United States sena-
tor from Mississippi, actually received
his education in Knox College. Several
of our colored citizens claim to be old
friends and acquaintances of the honor-
able senator, and it is even reported that
one or two of his relatives reside here.
Galesburg is thus distinguished as hav-
ing educated and trained the first man of
color who occupies a seat in the senate
chambers of the republic.
