ANOTHER WAY OF RAISING THE WIND
On Thursday evening, a white man enticed a black lad into a house in the suburb Lacourse. No sooner had the boy passed the door, than he was seized and gagged; a good coat was taken from his back, and about nine dollars out of his pocket; he was then beaten and turned into the street.--
The perpetrator of this villany thought, at the time, that his victim was
a slave, whose oath might not be taken, and thus no fear of detection need exist.
However, the white man's cunning proved here at fault. The black lad is free,
and lost no time in making his complaint to a magistrate, which has brought
about the arrestation of the robber. - New-Orleans paper
