The Message of Gov. Thomas is a well-written, sensible and important document. It contains, however, one sentiment upon which the people are divided, he says, in speaking of our country and political institutions, "all men are born free and equal." His excellency is a sensible man and meant what he said, and does not consider negroes human beings. Negroes who are born in Pennsylvania are on an equality with white men while those which are born Maryland are on an equality with brutes; a species of the Orang-outang.
