To address you on the great a ovation now Agiu Ted by the american people a oct soap a we believe deeply interesting to the future welfare and Proaper ily ofor beloved country. We the More readily perform the duty a we believe that Coite a is the period Oft be approx icing presidential election Quot the time fur argument never cease with fret Len. We wish to address you because we Cerio sly and solemnly believe that in the approaching contest the stand we have taken is the right one. It is one which appeals to the judgment under standing and patriotism of our fellow citizens and not to their feelings their a enter or their prejudices. We come before Yon with no mimic procession with no display of banners and flags and log Cabin Bush for the occasion with neither beats or Birds a a with no other than truth with no other weapon than reason and if with these the Battle we a re Aboul to it fit cannot be gained we shall at least or recrimination. By Page of oar co Antr a history for the last thirty year must be blots out forever it expanded Quot with Black Linea around it if our credulity can be to far imposed upon a to believe that a it a of the Jetur Sonia school of politics. Let is judge men by their act oae and not by their Profesa Iona. We contend that the party now to tally supporting Gen. Harrison near far a the prominent men the leaders of time party Are concerned Umero Ufa have been so since they entered Public life continue so now and a till continue so to the cod of tb4 chapter. That they Are the same men or men of the same principles with those who supported John Adams against Thomas Jefferson in 1800 who entertain the same principles which were entertained by the Federal party who instead of address is the judgment and reason of their fellow citizens and believing them capable of self government apply themselves to their passions to their feelings to their senses a men who looking to their selfish interests have nominated Gen. Harrison not a their Choice but because be waa More Likely from adventitious circumstances which surrounded him to become More Ataii Abu than any other candidate and who with great reluctance even under All these favourable circumstances for his popularity nominated him. We do not say nor do we believe that All the party who now support Gen. Harrison Are governed by Cuch considerations in their pro sent support of Liim. We believe there ire Many very Many honorable and High min Jtj men a Large minority of the party who if they knew and believed the real object of the leaders of the whig party waa a we believe it to be the attainment of Power a patronage themselves the gratification of their own selfish and corrupt Purpo Aea and not the least personal or political respect for the nominee a would leave them to Morrow. To such men it is our wish to address ourselves. It is our desire to reason Quot together As surely we have no interest but those in common with you. So far As the happiness and Prosperity of our beloved country is concerned we Are Quot Bone of your Bone and flesh of your we flt either wish to indulge incrimination men Are never convinced by Low have the cons elation of knowing that we have used rib Aldry of vulgar abuse no Jaq Ever was con no Meine to insure Success but such As Are Sanction Vertex to the True Faith in politics or religion by aged by the example of our fathers before us in the j indiscriminate attack upon himself and All who have great Republican contest of 1800�?of such Means Only i before either thought or acted with him. From As freemen i Hort a make use of in a contest of Prin Ihry brow of Gen. Harrison we feel no disposition to Ciplic. To our Opi it one nth alone belongs the Honor if i Pluck a single Laurel which has been Lesili nunely Honor it can be called of resorting to measures for placed there. Rut it surely seems a singular move the purpose of effects nor the Suc Cois of their party j ment a sudden transformation of opinion in those heretofore unknown unthought of and unwarranted j who thought and said that Quot War pestilence and a by All previous action of either political party which mine were far preferable to electing a Man As the has heretofore struggled for supremacy in this re chief magistrate of a great nation merely on account Public. Whether the measures adopted by them and of his military Fame Quot to support a candidate Hovd of which you Are the daily witness of addressing i for the same office on the to Princi get that his Mil your passions and appealing to your senses instead i itary services would be an effective argument for be of convincing your understandings and enlightening i curing his election by the people. For our own your judgment Are to be successful a few Days a parts we care not what May have been his Milita will determine. For ourselves we have neither the by Fame whether it is All that is claimed by him incubation or the Money to resort to such expedients self and his admirers or less than that of any other we have said that the general who Wae in the service during the last War. The first who Are the Rich and he Oey born the other the Mats of the people the Grea Quot whig Lea it Der Oft at Day Alexander Hamilton was Secretary of the Treasury and As Hia feelings were rather in favor of the first class Tbs Rick and Well born Quot instead of the other Quot the mass of the people and to which latter class All the a Miere of the re it Wintion belonged he detect lined to Aid the first at the expense of the second and in Fate Teeth of the pm in Tive Law above recited and believing no doubt Quot that the revenues of the country could not be collected of disbursed to the bed advantage without the interposition of the Quot establishments Quot hereafter mentioned issued on the 22d of of september 17, the follow ing of Lucial circular to the collectors of the Ous Tomt Quot treas Dot Dot it atm by to sept. 22, 1789. Quot sir in consequence of arrangements lately taken with the Bank or now Ambbia and the Bare of new Yoek for the of the government i am to inform you that it a my desire that the Nolea of those Banki payable either on demand or at no longer period than thirty Days Afler their respective a Tes shall be received in pay Eai of duties As Buoi Valint to Gold Ann Silva a and that they will be received from you As such by the treasurer of the United and Here fellow citizens we May Trace All the evils of the banking system in this country so far As the government is concerned. To this dangerous precedent in violation of i primitive jaw of a a Liemb a t of Congro is for the Mere Quot accommodation of the government Quot the Secretary of Hia own will without any authority issues the circular which has been made a precedent from that time Down for the use of the Public Money by the Banks either state or National until the use of it for banking purposes has been positively prohibited by the present democratic administration and Here with the present whig party and with All the admirers of Alexander Hamilton has been the great sin of the present administration. Could the Banks have had the use of these funds of your Money a to have discounted upon to have speculated on to have issued on sometimes 20 for i do you believe the present administration would have been proscribed by Themi no Alexander Hamilton however had higher views than the Mere Quot accommodation of the government Quot when be issued that circular. His prophetic and Federal vision saw in the Long Vista of years to come that it was but the entering wedge to a great paper by temp the entering wedge to a splendid blanking scheme whether state or National by which executive Power would be strengthened and the distinctions Between Quot the Well born and the Rich and the mass of the people Quot a the capitalist on the one Side and the Farmer and the Mechanic on the other would in a Short time produce practically on this Side of the Atlantic that which he thought Quot the Best Model in the world fora government the British on the other. Now we As the democratic party Are for going Back to first principles to the act made by the sages of the revolution to the receipt Only by the government of the constitutional currency to a divorce of the government funds and the Bankers funds. We object to the Bank Hotch Potch by which we cannot discriminate Between your Money and the stockholder s funds.

And whence comes these funds for these poor and oppressed whigs ? awl for what purpose Are they expended fellow citizens ? these Are questions we leave to your own discrimination to answer. Fellow citizens we see no cause for despondency at least in Indiana. Whatever others May do let us not fail to do our duty in the present crisis. Our opponents brag of their Success it is no new game with them. Previous to the August election hardly a whig paper in the state but what was weekly filled with the Quot recantation of Van they come in single paragraphs in whole columns like the advertisement of dead letters at the Post office. The individual who knew nothing of the Mode in which Quot recantation Quot were manufactured by wholesale would have supposed oar Chance of overwhelming defeat certain. But How Are the facts a officially shown 1 in i8d6, the vote at the presided tial election was As follows Harrison 41,281 Van Buren 32,478 even were Success certain. A a a a. Cont Cut in which we Are engaged is a great one we care not if the nominee had fought successfully i a a a banking system when properly conducted that on its result depends in a very great degree for every Battle from Tippecanoe to new Orleans. We j believe they May be and no doubt Are useful believe As our opponents did in the Case of their of institutions when acting we an their own proper position to Gen. Jackson a he must have in did off afe sphere. But what we object to is the lion other qualifications to insure our support. He reception by them of the people s Gold and Stiver a hem to be known and so far As we open lib and boldly i must Ever have stood fast by those great principles the payment out by them to the Public credit of a a even by a Newi As Infalvi their own depreciated paper whether Quot payable on Quot Wicai or woe Quot the future destinies of our beloved country. That this is so let a Brief recurrence to principles so far As our opponents indirectly permit avow our own determine. From the origin of our which Are now recognized government to the present Day parties have existed blew the jeffersonian Creed in our country. They were defined under our con Fodera a Llic lines were More hardly drawn in the formation of the Punsti Gulfon under which we the one party was headed by or. Hamilton the other though not a member of the Convent Ion which for Nib the Coli tit ution was led by or. Jeff Erson. The Dimi Clive appellations of the two parties were he must in All cases Federal and Ijar socratic. The one of which Ham j Ion of Quot the unconstitutionality of a National Bank Quot Ilton was the Leader was for a Strong and energetic j and that Quot that opinion remains unchanged Quot and government for Gwing to the executive great pow j yet at the same Lime admit that he would sign the ers an executive for life a Senate for life and the Bill to charter one by Congress without any Amend election by tic general government of the Gover j ment of the Constitution As provided for by that in nors of the several states. The plan of Hamilton str ment it Torti cd Quot that he thought the revenues of demand or having thirty Days to run Quot and this in and at All tunes have planted himself on the ram i it constitutes the real difference Between us and parts of the Constitution. He must never in any i of Quot a Quot opponents. They believe in a Bank of the uni Case have permitted that instrument the great charter of our liberties to construction by the admission granted and never thought of by the great framed it. He must never have declared his Opin Ted states As being Quot greatly advantageous to the be violated by forced collection and disbursement of the Public Money Quot Mission of Powers never a Quot a through the general gags a Little at its Quot in constr of by the great men who la tonality Quot it will go Down if he is elected support w total 73,759 a Harrison s maj. 8803 in 1840, bigger. 62,934 he Ward 54,297 total 117,231 Biggers maj. 8637 Ted As the expediency of the measure will be by the whig Quot majority Quot which he expects to receive and which he will very graciously consider no doubt and have a Quot Clear opinion Quot too is a Quot majority Quot of the people of the United states though he had belter wait until the election is Over before he settles that matter. Now we believe that no such ins Titu resembled in its great essentials the Pun of the the country could not be collected or disbursed to state or National is at All Quot advantageous to Courti Tutton its King fjords and com i the Best advantage without such an institution Quot or in the other Case supposed by him Quot that he must be mind j clearly of the opinion that the majority of the peo a Riligh Mons. It will not be stir pricing to any intelligent that Hamilton himself should have thought such a form of govern Miil Best suited to our then condition. He had no Faith in the people s fitness or aptitude for self government. We had but Juet emerged from our colonial condition and the Fri tips Constitution was looked to As the perfection . In the debate on the Constitution of United states he Adra to this fact. He Faysz Quot i believe pie of the United states desired such an institution Quot a matter solely settled and Quot clearly Quot too in his Quot opinion Quot by his own election. See gerneral Harrison s speech at Dayton o. Sell Lola 1840. Now i the above is not As latitudinal Ian a doctrine As any federalist of 1800 Ever broached we do not know what is. He believes the creation of a National Bank unconstitutional. He takes an oath to support the British government forms the Best Model the that Constitution. He Calla on god and his fellow world Ever produced and such has been ils Progress i men to witness that vow. Yet with his lips moist in the minds of Many that this truth gradually gains j from the kiss which be gives to the sacred volume ground. Again in the same debate he the most solemn obligation that Man cart take on communities Divide themselves into the few and the i this Side the grave is violated the same Day by sign Many. The first Are the Rich and the Well born the ing an act he knows is a violation of that instrument other the Masa or Tab people. The voice of the j Quot a face 6e/i>�e�,&Quot As the whig party the very first people has been said to be the voice of god and j session afer election will be very Apt to make him however generally this Maxim has been quoted and believe Quot that the Revenue of the country cannot be believed it is not True in fact. A the people Are tur j collected or disbursed to the Best advantage without he left and changing. They Seldom judge or de a National Bink Quot or if he believes that the whig Termine we might multiply quotation on party Are As every one knows they Are though for quotation a the debates to show that Hamilton Good reasons no doubt they do not now moot the and All who sided with him the ferrai party were Point Quot in favor of such an we know of the opinion that we required a Strong government of but one parallel Case in the whole history of our one in which the executive and senatorial influence would perfectly control the popular impulse that the executive and aristocratic influence was and should to the Prepend rating influence in our Republic. As before remarked it is not strange that these doctrines should have been advocated at the period to which we allude. The Experiment of How far a people were capacitated to govern themselves was an untried question. Yet we find that even at that period men were found with intelligence equal at least to their opponents and with views far More Liberal and democratic and whole views forty years experience of the working of the system under the Constitution Haa fully exemplified As Correct who differed on All these great questions from Hamilton and his party. At the head of this other the democratic party flood Thomaa Jefferson and James Uliey maintained and asserted the supremacy of the people to limit entire fitness and qualification tor their a a in government. They looked upon Man As the image of his creator possessed of certain inalienable rights capable of self government that mind should always enjoy a superiority Over wealth. They were opposed to any distinction in society but those inv Hubly resulting to All republics and created by Merit alone. They sought to promote in the greatest pop Sime degree tho greatest possible Good of the Graa Tett member. They were in favor of equal right equal Laws equal privileges. They were opposed to All monopolies. They asserted the right the states their Sovereign their Complete inde pen Deaca of the general government except in Tomse cases a bar of the Constitution certain sex hmm mgt a a Alviad Powers were yielded to the for a or for to Wra of All. They denied the exercise a fan poorer Coa Greas except those specially Grafl Tad and denied its Power to pass any act not once Asaff Mietty to Earry into effect a granted Power. Teaf were against a National debt and a National Baak and the history of the convention Wieb framed Tea Conati tation teaches us Uma this Grastat Power toe sate National rank under that Ian frument was expressly negatived. Hera than fellow Eitens you perceive tha distinction which originally Tatad Bawaen the two parties a which in a greater or Leaa degree under various names so far As Tea Federal party Haa been concerned has beat Chat Soaad to Tea Prasa Atway a a which now sex Lau a a Aad a bib.

That Haa formed a Moat dangerous precedent from that time Onward it has been the great source of All our evils of All our difficulties and but for it the Independent Treasury now to much decried so much abuse the divorce the Complete and absolute divorce of Bank and state would have been effected from the earliest action of the government under oar Constitution to the present Day but for it and we seriously believe no such institution As a Bank of the United states Ever would have been thought of for a moment in this Republic. The excuse then for this open and palpable violation of a Public Law or an act of Congress was the same a it is now for a violation of the constitutions Quot the collection and Dabu raiment of the Public Revenue to the Best on the Slat of july 1789, about five months Afler our government had got into operation under the present Constitution Congress Many of the members of which had been members of the convention which framed the Constitution passed a Law Quot to regulate the collection of the 13th Section is As follows Quot i he duties and fees to be collected by virtue of this act shall be received in Gold and Silver Coin Only at the following rate that a to say the Gold coins of France England Spain and Portugal and All Othet Gold coins of equal fineness at eighty nine cents of every Pennyweight the mexican Dollar at one Hundred cents the Crown of France at one Dollar and eleven cents the Crown of England at one Dollar and eleven cents and Allt it ther alive i coins of equal oneness at one Dollar and eleven cents per Here then in five month Afler the adoption of the Constitution is the principal and distinguished feature of the Independent Treasury Hill the Prin Cipal one at which the whig party Carp and Cavil at so much and tha Only feature in the Bill at which to their hearts they take exception the receipt of Gold and Silver Coin for debt due the of memento the exclusion of their favor the Bank notes adopted by the sages who framed our Coati tuition and made As they thought a fundamental Lav of the land for All time to pome. Here is one act about the construction of which Quot Tea Way faring Man though a fill Quot could not err. It was Tham it Lemn act of the people through their represent Jas and carried with but slight opposition As our fathers bad seen and Felt the of Lect of the paper Money system. The language of the Law is imperative. Quot the duties shall be received paid in old arb Auvaa these Dutina were Tabasa Tea Mam source of oar Rev Anna.

We believe again that it is the Only constitutional Mode of collecting and disbursing the Public Money and the one designed by the framers of that instrument and the Section above recited As the Only legitimate Mode. Should Gen. Harrison be elected that Law will be repealed. Air. Webster in a Public speech says Quot tee have made Fwilliam Henry Harrison Oca Standard bearer and it requires no gift of prophecy to predict what Quot our Standard bearer Quot will do in such a Case supported As he a by the leading federalists the abolitionists the anti masons and every other faction anxious for Power and patronage Aad perfectly unscrupulous about the Means of securing it. We Are Only to judge from what has been to form a pretty accurate opinion to of what is to be. The Independent Treasury Bill even before its que ration has determined its propriety or impropriety As a fiscal measure is to be repealed. A great National Bank with a capital of at least fifty millions is to be chartered As a Means of Quot collecting Aad disbursing the Public Revenue in the most advantageous the Assumption by the general government of the state debts and a most splendid scheme both of Public and private credit stretching Over this fair land from one end of it to the other colossal in its dimensions fair in its outward proportions but destined sooner or later to fall crushing a with its ruins and leaving this whole country desolated and overwhelmed with its broken fragments. The speculations of 1836-7 will be Mere Quot Bagatelle Quot compared with those of 1843-4 and while Quot the Rich and w i born Quot will profit by the lessons already Given that Quot mass of the people Quot the Small Farmers the working Man the Mechanic will be As they always Are made poorer in order to add to the i ready bloated incomes of the former. We speak this in tho spirit of prophecy. May he who rules the destinies of Man and nations prevent the catastrophe. Fellow citizens our limits forbid us from discussing at length the various charges which have been made against the administration by our opponents so Many and so various have they been so perfectly void of All semblance of truth so palpably absurd so boldly asserted and yet so frequently again and again in the Public prints in pamphlets in documents at Public meetings on the stump in the court House in every Way both written and verbal disproved time and again to the satisfaction of every unprejudiced mind yet so per tenaciously Quot when vanquished argued still Quot by the opponents of Tea administration that he must be wilfully dead to the dictates of truth and reason i of now for a moment believes them.

We thar democratic gain 166 thus on an increased vote of 43,472 from 1836 to 1840, notwithstanding All the boasted changes from democracy to whig Gery As paraded in tho whig papers there was an actual democratic gain of one Hon dred and sixty six votes. It is Idle for Wiir opponents to say that the strict party line was not drawn so far As they could draw it in that contest. Every one who knows the merits of the two candidates their personal popularity their weight of character standing and talents throughout the state knows How different the result would have been had no extrinsic influences operated in the election. A change of 4 thousand three Hundred and Twenty votes then in one Hundred and seventeen thousand two Hundred and thirty one will secure the state in november to the democratic cause. Have not influences arising from the Justice of our Causo and the weakness of our opponents been constantly operating to produce this Chan since the August election Are not the moral and the virtuous and the intelligent even of the whig party disgusted with the scenes they have witnessed in the state since that period for the purpose of deluding the weak and the a reflecting Are they satisfied with that which has been pursued will they i they do not go with us go against usable what they have witnessed 1 we believe not. But should we err in these calculations fellow citizens should we be beaten in november even worse than we were in August what is our duty to be More vigilant More Active More United than Ever. To do As our fathers did before us in the great struggle which ended finally in our Independence. Did they yield in the darkest hours of our country s adversity ? no i when beaten on Breed s Hill they retired to Bunker s. When driven out of the jerseys they Cross the Delaware in the midst of floating ice and the darkness of a Winter s night and take up their position in Pennsylvania. They swore never to give up the contest until successful. Our opponents May have a temporary Triu Inch and temporary it will be As they have no fixed principle of action a sort of mosaic party in politics composed of All the Odds and ends of All the factions which have sprung up As Furze in the political world since 1800. They have no common Bond of Union but that of self interest. Their patriotism is limited by the desire of putting out those who have the Power and of getting it themselves. With us How different. We Are contending for those principles which Are As Temal As truth in Elf the right of self government an Equality of rights the Power the Sovereign Complete absolute Power of the people the principles of 1798 a of 1800. We May be unsuccessful we May he beaten but As surely a truth crushed to Earth will Rise again. The eternal years of god Are hers while error wounded writhes in pain and Dies among her worshippers. So tha principles of the democratic party though Quot crushed Quot for the moment will and victorious and become the guardians of the Republic. Fellow citizens of the second congressional District of Indiana remember that on the second Day of Nove Nebor every Man of you is expected to do his duty. Are you a Farmer 1 leave our plough and attend the polls. Are you a Mechanic 1 leave your shop and attend the polls. Are you a merchant a leave your store. Are you a professional Man a leave your office. In whatever rank or condition in life you May be devote one Day to your not Only do this but see that your neighbors do the same thing. Let no Man be absent. Let no Man suy away. Come one Home All. It is no time to be a Craven now. He Moo is not with us in heart a soul body is against us. To the Rescue we aay and Indiana May yet take her rank among the most favored of her democratic Sisters in the great confederacy of which she is destined Ere Long to be among tho most prominent.

A Bis speech at Chillicothe Ohio he said Quot a bad been acquainted with Martin Van Buren for Twenty eight a is and that for Ibe last Twenty years a had been on term of Tea great eat Fatima Eye and it gave him Plaa Aara to Star i that a the whole of his political connections be never kaew one More upright to princ up or of few to Mormur and very few possessing to attn of n a Ker order than Martin fan Buren.

By no Meana suffer you Milf to neglect this. There is More in it than Tsirikas your Eya at first sight. The most ont rage us frauds will undoubtedly a committed upon the ballot boxes by the federalists this year unless they Are closely watched. Again we caution and entreat Yoa to see to this thing at each place of voting. Look out for the federalists who like the half starved wild beast of the Woods Bave grown furious and will resort to any Means to accomplish their ends. A count the totes. As soon As the polls Are clo. Insist that Thia be done and with often doors in every remember freemen that the ballot Box is your Only Hope. It is there where your liberties Wil Bej served or lost. If you suffer fraud to creep Inott ballot Box at this trying crisis in our history when the Money of the country is arrayed in open rebellion against its Laws and in open warfare against the people you will soon feel the chains of despotism clanking upon your limbs your boasted liberties will soon take to themselves wings and Fly away. These heaven bought privileges were purchased by the blood of your Farmers a you hold them Only upon the tenure of eternal vigilance. Let not the ballot Box be taken from the place of voting until the polls Are counted out the federalists will make one United Effort Over the country to do this and when they have the ballot Box at Home How easy will it be for them to take out fifty or a Hundred or any number of democratic tickets and put in in their Stead As Many Federal tickets. Fellow citizens this has been done in Many places. It will be done this year unless you stand up like men and like men resist any Effort of the federalists to take Home the ballot boxes before the votes Are counted but. Suffer it not upon any consideration sur it we know that Iwa ome instances the ballot Box has been deposited in a Bank yes fellow citizens deposited in a Bank from the time of closing the polls until the next Day. There is the very place the federalists would like to see it they would rejoice to see every ballot Box in the Union deposited for purification twelve hours in the vaults of a Bank before the votes Are counted out. And were such a course permitted where would be the boasted liberties of the american people Echo answers where bullies look out for hired bullies who will be stationed about the ballot boxes. Stand Square up to them the ballot Box belongs to the people and not the Banks meet these desperadoes on their own ground i they wish we Are Able for them in any Way they choose. The arms of freemen never fail when duty Calls All we ask is fair play. This we Are determined to have peaceably if we can forcibly if we must. Illegal voters must be watched. Hundreds of votes of this character will be Veo unless the democrats watch the polls with an Eagle Eye and sternly resist any thing in the shape of fraud. The hundreds of noisy boys who Are hissed on by their parents to insult the democrats will All want to vote.

Refutation of a slander. Having received a letter from a citizen of Georgia informing us that it had been repeatedly stated at Public meetings in addresses to the people of that state that Gen. Harrison is a defaulter to the government with a request that we would inquire into the truth of that charge and place the facts before the Public we sought the information in the Moit direct manner possible by addressing to the Secretary of the Treasury a letter of which the following is a copy Wasbin Oton sept 4, 1840.

Talk to your friends talk to the federalists Tell them the truth conviction always goes hand in hand with the truth. Many democrats at heart May vote with the federalists not knowing the fact and All their lives after have cause to regret it. See such men and talk to them about the company they Are in expostulated with them about casting a vote now that May Ever afterwards be a reproach not Only upon them but upon their children and their children s children a by federalism is Al this enlightened Day a deep reproach to any Man.

H. Beg and honorable Roget out the voters. It is needless to say that this is the was the federalists will do they always have done so their voters never fail to be at the polls while the democrats Are very often too thronged with work to go to the it in mind. That the democrats never have lost the contest when they All turned out to the they will just As surely As the Sun Shine be victorious in old Muski Ngum if they All come out to the Forret this. Some men station themselves at the ballot Box on the Day of election to brow beat and overage poor men who air a happen to be in debt to them. Democrats will you suffer this thing to be done no you must never tamely Bend to the tyrant oppressor s Yoke you must be permitted to vote precisely As you wish Quot unwed by influence and a bribed by at the polls until the Box is closed and sea. That the old and infirm democrats Are not kept away from voting by Tea crowd. Men Are employed in Soma places to Block up the polls and keep the democrats watch Well that the Way i it kept Battle now is near at hand Are All ready it will be one that will try men s souls there will be no Chance for running.

Are you All ready if not if there is a Soldier of democracy who is Behrad band now or never begin to be ready. A thousand things remain to be done. Call on your Luke warm neighbor and entreat him to go to the polls. Stir him up to the importance of the contest.

Let those who have listened to the Quot two Toms Quot that have been speaking through the North part of the state compare the above from the National intelligencer with their harangues about defaulters and say with what propriety or consistency they support Harrison.
