Commentary on the Dixon Telegraph.


Thursday, September 2, 1858.

No Republican paper in the State of Illinois (or any other State that we know of) ever published a sentence which would lead persons to suppose that Republicans believed in negro equality. – Dixon Telegraph.

It must be that the editor of the Telegraph does not read the Freeport Journal, or that he does not regard it as a "republican paper." Which is it? For the benefit of the Telegraph we give an extract from the Journal, as follows:

"We believe the negro is human – he has a soul – he has intellect – and in so far as the rights of suffrage or an other right of citizenship is concerned, he should be placed on a an equality with the rest of mankind."
