in more intelligible language,the old Dem

within itself all the se‘curiticslagsinst con
fusion, fright, bloodshed, anarchy, gissolu- 1
tion, martyrdomgdisgra‘ce, dishonest , bank- 1
ruptcy and ruin. Join us, we say, and 1
peace and perfect security will come to
your doors“; butirejeot this good advice—l
go on in evil dbing—go on'as the blind
leading the blinfi—stiflen your necks and ;
harden your hearts against reason ~and 1
common sense-+3O on in the support of ‘
negro emancipation and the various other \
iniquities an duormities of the present ‘
State and National Administrations—and
we cannot be responsible for any imaginable
calamities that may befall the country, and
through the country yourselves.
We say join the party that repudiated the‘
principles of Abolitionisrn at the last No
vember elections—flint elected Horatio Sey
mour Governor of New York in Opposition ‘
to the mo ' influence of the government
at Washin —{that has had an Existence
{or threequarters of a century—that has
always defended the stars and the stripes l
against the aggressions of foes without and 1
, enemies within—that has made us the ad- 3
l mimtion of the‘world—that has deténded
, the civil and religions liberties of the p6O- l
lplvagainst the secret conspiracies of un
princl led, dangerous societies of men—that
cont‘ed for the Crittenden Compromise
as a basis, that would have been perfeko
just and right, and saved thousands of lives
and millions of debt—that has resisted s 9
ressions of tyrants and defended the old
%‘1 of the Revolution at home and abroad,
at 31 times, upon land and sea—that has
made our country what it was, the home of
the free, the land of the brave, in spite of
the ride of despo , emperors, and kings.
W}; say in concl tion, that this is the so

that has place in our bosoms, and the only
one that eyer will—the conservative, patri
