needs pacification: it needs the resto > tion
of -nutunl respect and harmonv, hi?tv
< n the people in one part of the Union,
and those in another.
And, in mv judgment, there h no sufficient
cause for the con-imnnce of the exl-Miur
alienation between the No th and
the South. If we will look at things
juHtlv, and calmly, therein no es^en i>d
differences, either of interest or opinion,
which are irreconcilable, or incapable of
Adjustment, So fur as the question of
shivery applies to the newlv uequi ed te"aitories,
there is, in rnv ju lament, no real
anil practical point of impoit nee in dispute.
