States, concerning the breaking up of the Freedmens School at Corinth, that the two teachers were men of no character, that they took up their abode in the Col'd Church and all sort of rumors got afloat about them. The citizens generally denounce the act and are strongly in favor of the schools, and the Civil authorities will protect the same. The Mayor is making every effort to arrest the offenders.

The teachers received no bodily harm, only one was at the church at the time, the other believed to have been in bed with a Colored woman in the neighborhood
