TranscriptOUR COLORED DEFENDERS--The col-
ored national guard of Galesburg will
shortly make active preparations for
the purpose of turning out on parade
on the fourth of July. The ranks of
the company are being rapidly recruit-
ed, and we feel confident that if the
College City should ever be besieged by
the heathen Chinee or the Feejee Is-
landers, that the colored troops will be
foremost in every sortie.
