In yonr issue of this morning, you:

situation, in terms which soern to roe

tween our country and all others ; peace
between North and South ; peace be.
tween white %nd black. *We have had
enough of war end waste and havoe and
cahiage, for at least a century. Hence,
I have long labored, and still labor, for
true pnd lasting peace.
