Certain it is, that the privilege of voting
given lo tho soldier is a mockery, when
the vtiy man agaiiiit whom perhaps, ho
would like to vote, has the most def-potio
control over those v ho rule that soldiers'
every ui'jveiiieni, and eould send him at a
word to the Iron t of baliU and to death, if
he refused compliance with their bchos's.
Until the vo uutecr soldiery have the pow
er of chooiiug their own offiecrs, tlu right
(if suffrage for othei ptirpoies cau neter be
properly cirried into effect in the army
Hid they been fairly nnd freely left (o
their own preferenees, can tiuy sane twin
doubt, but that there would have beeu
uuroh steadily on tiur accustomed paths,
employing neither stealth nor hecurity ;
they arc unworthy of freicom, who are
afraid to defend it in open day.
