While in oar view it belongs to the general amnesty that those restored tociti- cenxhip in the United States should be re- stored to absolute equality with those who have not lost their citizenship, and espe- cially thould be met by nothing like party- iim, with lines drawn upon secession and Union, yet it is eminently fit and right that, other things being equal, in selecting men for office, the late secessionists themselves should vote for mainly Union men. In our own State, fortunately, we have men ot ability and character enough to fill all the leading State and national offices. It would be unwise for us, having such men as Pease 4nd Bell, and Hamilton and Hancock and • Epperson, and men of like calibre, who have • always been regarded as Union men, to se- lect anybody else for Governor, Senators, • Congressmen, etc., and thus give ground - for those in Washington and the North " who, ...
