Itcunre of Fraudulent VOtiu
The law has carefully guarded against all

Legislature in (he general election law hat

or all who knowingly invade the purity of
th elective franchise; and in the Removal
Bill additional safeguards are thrown around
the election this fall, in our county. The
law will be faithfully and rigorously enfor

may be depended upon. All the following

It will be seen by i notice in to days papers

Removal men, that in (he contest waging

work for it unitedly shoulder to shoulder.
No good Removal roan will suffer an

Best, and a host of the Danville faction,
are travelling through the County election
erring sgainst'ihe Removal Ticket. If it
makes no difference in regard lo the Re

why are they so anxious to defeat Funsion?
would they ape oil their lure and money il
they were not lo be benefitted by it? Echo
answers would they?
For wanl of anything belter, the enemir
of the Removal are slandering the Removal
candidates for Representative, by saying

his friends have any such intention, and it
is only an electioneering story got up in
order lo elect the Volunteer candidate. All
