ly, as Mr. Greeley, and if he did not, it would still be our duty to vote for our great commander. Principles, not men, simply, must be our watchword, at least in the present campaign.

In our Gubernatorial contest, we have on the Union Republican ticket, the brave Gen. John F. Hartranft, the hero of many battles in the cause of Freedom, fought against our Southern foes. He has a large place in the hearts of our colored soldiers and of our grateful people. We know him. Malignity, born of hate and envy has tried to darken his fame as an honest man, but those charges have recoiled upon the heads of those who gave them to the public ear. The Hon. D. N. White's letter is a masterly vindication of Gen. Hartranft, and we thank him for it.
