the dictation and toora! coercion experienced by their Rebe)
BMhrett. so lately smothered by the killing earessM of the r
ftt oil? fr>ru the North. The Border State soperifieallon, with
its oblivions influence, as nsoal. and a ?hole platftum snob 88
would be approved enthusiastically by the coi.vlci.one and ex
of ihe mae? of the ottc ding Southerners, cannot ixi
looked for if this policy prevail?. It ?aunot b? denied or dis?
guised that the boJy of the d? legations from the U.ia South
are almos', unanimously In favor of liberal recoiiitroctlon on
the basis of eqaal suffrage. The sentiment of Louisiana
Texas, and Teniicssoo, is well known, and will ootwelght th it
of Yu gima, which is ?ven more R.JU.l on many
pointa, bat not M liberal in tb? main, elth-r
to the Rebel who has borne arms a?r?)ni>t. or tTe
negro who ha? taken up arms fur hit country. The ap?
peal to tbe North, the bill of irrlevaooe?, or resolve?, or what*
over formula of policy the Couventlonists sMflt to adopt, will
go further in rasuy respect? to impress and oonrlnoe the mind
of the Borth, than anything yet ret forth in tho legislation?
We ahull have no Quarrelling, at all events, anti at the least
?omet bing will be brought forth ?ound and reassnriog to the
coD?try. Tho loyal mon of the South already feel that they
h?.vc it in their power to dictate the platform of the country.
It will l>e well written no donLt, ead wisely laid down, and
w ill be comprehensive.
?ST.nulli Maryland anil Delaware decide on tahinir rank with
the weleomers, there will be still greater honiogcLity among
the veteran Loyalist? of the South.
