THE MASSACHUSETTS TWO YEARS’ AMENDMENT. – Speaking of the two years’ amendment in Massachusetts, through the combined efforts of Americans and Democrats, the Detroit Tribune remarks:
One fact stands forth for the satisfaction of that influential class of our fellow-citizens at whose political status this odious amendment strikes, and that is this: that every State of the Union controlled by the Republicans – either by its press, its leading public men, or its State Central Committees, has counseled Massachusetts not to take this action, and protested against it. The Republican party of the great Northwest can be inculcated with no such proscriptive heresy. Michigan again washes her hands of it. She is for political equality, and no proscriptive dogmas, as she ever has been.
