news connected with the disgraceful riots.

sued, which we lay before our readers, in
the full confidence that, they will appreciate
as it deserves;the,full and manly exposi
tion of those Whom we feel proud ofbaving
elected as representativrs of the Whig
party, anti who in time of peril and coin
motion, adhere Steadily to those rights. of
which neither force nor intimidation can
peprive them. ' •
