    THE DEVIL NOT AS BLACK AS HE IS PAINTED. – The papers yesterday brought a new sensation item about the Harper’s Ferry business. The statement was that Gov. Wise has received dispatches from Gov. Chase and the United States Marshal – Johnson – of Ohio, informing him that six hundred to one thousand men, under John Brown, Jr., were preparing to go to Charlestown to rescue his father.

    Gov. Chase is a regular abolitionist of the Seward stripe, and it is not a little surprising that he should furnish us with the first evidence for some weeks past that there is some good in the worst of people.
