"The Third Sober Thought."'
New York has done nobly and stands
forth shining like a pillar of fire amid the'
darkness which overshaddow the other
States. Borne down, disheartened and
destroyed, by the mivsrule of Loco Foco

the manacles of party, and rallied around
the flag of their country, resolved to pre

They are free ! Every link it that cur_
