Florida Gov. vetoes bill excluding negroes

The Governor of Florida has recently vetoed a bill excluding free negroes from that State.  After commenting on the occurrence, the Pensacola Observer says:  ‘The news of its failure was received by a large number of the good citizens of this place, with the most lively manifestations of satisfaction who entertain for this class of our population sentiments of respect and feelings of the warmest personal attachment.’
