Slave states going for Harrison and he the abolition candidate 1 it is evidence there is a cheat somewhere and a great Deal of bad lying. If Gen. Hard cider is an abolitionist not a slaveholder can or will s import him if he is not an abolitionist then that party Are duped. The old fellow says to the North he is an abolitionist to the South that he abhors them but begs each of them not to publish his letters. Here then is a moral fraud deliberate lying and deception on the part of a can cider Adams and that he has men Aimi cear of a Aca dilate and his friends that involves offences More cockade.

Which we Are almost afraid to name lest it May do him an injury with Tome of our exclusive patriots but Yei we Teel so proud of the concurrence of sentiment on political Wintters which has always existed Between us that we cannot refrain from adding that or. Palmer is a j Vanl of the old school of Washington True to the heart s Core and not ashamed to Avo a hit Principati the Boston Atlas was not established until i8v2. It has uniformly been under the control of the Boston federalists and Outt topped All others in abuse of Jackson Van Buren and Morton and in supporting Hartford convention men and the United states j Webster who stands Bank. The federalists of Boston make it their Prin j i pal Harrison Organ. I throughout Massachusetts there is not now a j Aper which opposed the War that is not a supporter of general Harrison. The Worcester spy now one of the most virulent Harrison papers is also the oldest Federal press in Massachusetts. In 181.3 it was edited by John Davis who is now the whig candidate for governor against Marcus Morton. The following extracts from or. Davis s editorials in the midst of the War just after he had exulted at the burning of the Capitol the 24th of August 1814, will show where he Ever has been and Ever Means to be. Extra club from the spy edited by John Davis in 1812. A a we have uniformly entered our solemn protest against this Deso lating War which originated in the wicked malignant passions of a corrupt and imbecile Quot no Republican people were Ever so harassed perplexed and disgraced by a cautious and corrupt set of rulers As the people of this a a such a government is worse than Quot i he truth is our democrats love to talk of War and swagger and boast and vaunt but they abhor lighting. When danger approaches they skulk like dastardly Quot the evils the federalists have Long predicted Are thickening upon us and in our affliction let us a ways remember it is James Madison and his party that have brought these calamities on a we Hope and believe the people will soon be convinced that or. Madison is totally incompetent co hold the Rios of Quot if the people have stocks and stones so As to Bear any thing they must feel ashamed of their president and Elwir indignation will never subside till be is impeached and the government committed to other Quot this Wyton waste of property this perverse neglect of duty is sufficient to Brand any adminis ration with eternal in this violent Federal press or. John Davis Asiu editor applied the of vowing epithet to James Madison Quot this modern Nero this wort bees code Dente of Bonaparte. Despised at Bone and abroad. Quot this obstinate Inbau rated Man a plunges As into a Wanton wicked War a Cring iof our cowardly Captein goer so galloped his poor thirty Miles from the Quot the have it i cowardice and Pomy of Jemeze Madison. A a the Vranay head Quot a Quot disc Raceil conduct a Idle i flagrant than even slavery. We Are no abolitionist. I we would not deceive them or any one to obtain a a vote. Let the Knavish hypocritical deceiving whigs. As they Call themselves do this. But we j Are glad to see that some of the More intelligent i and honest abolitionists say hands off Clear out with your hard cider and Coonskin and Mummery to those whom you can Purchase and tie. Democrats a look through the whig press Lom Maine to Georgia and can you find a de ounciation or old Pride bal Mas cubs can y u find any one of the present whig journals Dis Cla Ming that they have in their ranks the great body of the old Federal party can you find one of the whig editors indignantly disowning Federal Princi Ples when Austin and Duane and others of the old democrats were defending Madison and Gerry from the fierce assaults of Russell and Callender where them was Daniel Forth As a Leader of loth t defending the actors in the Hartford convention co denouncing the measures of Madison s administration is there now a whig press that does not endorse Webster s principles 1 a fir democrats reflect and then act Boton Pont. Naturalized citizens. The flt Flo Woof indicates very plainly what natural died citizens have to expect from the Success of Feden Ilcisin in december 1814, a con motion of leading federalists assembled at Hartford Connecticut with the avowed object of Crisp Elliot the government to Shmit to an ignore Inoue peace with England and t0 endure in silence the in Ariee abuses and insults of that haughty Power or to bring about a separation the new enl Cid states from the confederacy. Thia con vestion among other Otea sures reported a series of Siren amendments to the Constitution of the United states the sixth of which was As follows Quot sixth. No person who shall hereafter be naturalized Rhall be eligible As a member of the Senate or House of representatives of the United states. Nor capable of holding any civil office under the authority of the United now let it be remembered that every surviving member of the convention which passed the above is a genuine Modem whig and that the Secretary is now editor of the leading whig paper in Connecticut. Moreover that it has always been and is to this Day approved by the whig party Sentinel. Bank notes in a recent act of the Ohio legislature says Tibbett s Western review the following Bank notes will be excluded from circulation in that Sute after the first Day of june they having been issued contrary to Law and brokers Are prohibited from buying them and a Fine is imposed upon persons who shall circulate any of the notes.

The Public Are therefore cautioned against receiving any of the above Bills. Harrison was born to affluence received an appointment before he was of age from old John Adams has been an office Holder All his life through family influence and has rendered no distinguished services he now holds a lucrative office which requires neither talents nor ability. Such is the Federal candidate. Without wealth and family influence he would have always remained in obscurity for he has neither talents nor qualities to win him to any Public Trust. Or. Van Buren is the maker of his own Fortune. Without wealth without family influence the son of a poor Farmers he educated himself his abilities commanded respect his integrity secured bin Confidence and be has been elected to the first station in the world merely by Bis own merits and Worth. In every step of his Public career be has been opposed by the aristocracy the federalists have exhibited towards him that malevolence which follows the unwavering and Stern advocate of popular rights. Fellow citizens look around you which of the candidates do you support 1 which do your Federal neighbors support i i a Nero incendiaries Are creeping about among us like moles in the ground As Blind As difficult to catch and As mischievous.
