Colored People Admitted to Fourth Avenue cars

Colored People Admitted to the Fourth Avenue Cars.  The Board of Directors of the Fourth Ave Line of City Railroad cars have rescinded their order excluding colored persons from the cars, so that, hereafter, white and black will be allowed equal privileges on this road.  It is to be hoped that other companies who have made this distinction in regard to persons of color will follow the good example set by the Fourth Ave line. —- N.Y.
