We have fallen upon evil times,
and it behooves us to consider well the position
which we occupy; to pease reflect and cast about
us, to ascertain the circumstances into the midst of
which we have been precipitated; and before we
act, to obtain a distinct view of the effect of our ac
tion, not only upon the present; but upon the re
mote arid far distant future. Professing, as we do,
to labor alone for the attainment of justice, and the
supremacy of truth and the rights of man; it
is believed with confidence that you will not disdain
to listen with calmness to the admonitions of one
who has at least endeavored to render some service
to the cause which we all advocate.
Armunent and remmn cannot be lost upon an
rtsmeiation composed of the wisest men and of the
best women of the United States.—l shell, there
fore, add rc ,, sinc; myself solely to your reason, and
your love of country, submit to you, fru:Oily, the
course which in my opinion, wisdom, policy, love
of country, self-respeet, regard for our principles ;
sod justice to our friends, ell require us to pursue
in the approaching election of a President of the
United States.
Assatning as a postulate, that our purposes are I
honest, that our principles are pure, and that
the true interest nod lasting happiness of the coun
try are only to he permanently secured by our tai-'
umph as a political party, as well as by our success
as an association of moral reformers, let its inquire
by what means, in the present posture of affairs, we
shall be most likely to attain, in the end, to the
good en.inence, which we base long sought, the
equal liberty of all men, without distinction of race
or colour, leaving to each one to pursue his own
happiness, according to the dictates of his own
judgment, under the restraint of wise laws, and the
control of an equal constitution.
To enable us to draw correct conclusions, we
must first take a distinct and close view of the pre
mises, whence our conclusions arc to be deduced;
—and what, in the present instance, are these pre
mis.l Are they not these that follow 1 Ist: The
country is divided into four great political parties.
2nd : Each of these parties professes to hold some
doctrines. which are not acceded to by either of the
no a party. 3rd: These four parties are
—lst: The I,o , otiico party ; which holds a politi
cal faiiit d ire; [II: in all its features front the faith of
all the others. 2oil : The Whig party. 3rd: The
Antionsonie party. And 4th: The Liberty party.
I presume that tile old gospel maxim—“the tree is
known try its will be admitted as a safe
standard by which we are to try and judge each of
the three first of these parties ; saying nothing for
the present of the tenets of the fourth.
oVlrr til
And now, ye lovers of liberty, of the freedom of
thought, and of speech, of the Constitution and of
the Bill of Rights, let us commune together and see
what the Loeofoco party is, and who the men are
who compose it.
It is the fatal tree which bears the fruits of this
party, whose boughs, more de rally than those
of the fabled Upas, cast their malign shadows over
the land, watered at its roots by the blood and the
tears of men in chains in Virginia, in South Caro- '
lion; and in all the regions where the noon-day
sun looks down upon a land of Flar.•es. What aro
the principles professed by this party? and what
are the doctrines which its members teach? Do
they not hold that the condition of master and slave
is the natural condition of human society ; and that
whosoever attempts to disturb this order of things,
is an enemy of his country and of mankind? Has
not this party condemned to the cells of the peni
tentiary, the ministers of the gospel of peace, for no
other crime, than fur preaching, in the language of
their great master, that the oppression of the crea
ture, was sin against the creator? Have not the
members of this party, every where, and in all the
States where they hold dominion and power, sensi
ble of their inability to confront us in argument,
threatened with the whipping post and the gallows
any and every freeman who should presume to en
ter their country and speak of their enormities?
Was it not this party that esta'ilished the 21st Rule
of the House of Representatives of the United
States, and insolently declared in the face of the
world, that the petitions of freemen of the United
States, to their own representatives, should not ho
reo , ! is the hall of the nation, before the Represen
tatives of the nation I Was it not this same party
that expelled a member of Congress front his seat
for uttering the sentiments and opinions, which you
had instructed him to utter in his place? Did not
this same party threaten and endeavor to drive from
the hall of the House of Representatives one of the
Heprtsentatives of the people, venerable for his

age, beloved for his virtues, honored for his une
qualled learning, covered with the renown of hav
ing filled the first (ace of the Republic with
ability surpassed only by Washington, and with
integrity never surpassed; and only because he
dared to use the' language of a freeman, in the pre
sence of those who were accustomed alone to the
accents of slaves 1 And was not this representa
tive of the people saved from the ostracism of the
self-styled modern Athenians, who like the persecu
tors of old, could not bear to hear him called just,
only by an argument which has never been surpas
sed for eloquence in any legislative body ; nor tram
' scended for learning before any judicial tribunal;
sustained by courage which would have added dig
nity to the defence of Socratei or of Raleigh
This party regards you as the Canaanites regard
ed the children of Israel, when they saw them en
camped upon the plains beyound Jordan ; knowing
that they were commissioned by Heaven, to purge
the land of „ those who burnt incense to Moloch,
and sacrificed young children upon the altars of
their idols."
From them you have nothing to hope, and the
master whom they propose we shall be compelled
to serve, is like unto themselves; and carries a grea
ter burthen of sins against the country, perpetrated
and intended to be perpetrated, if he shall be elect
ed President, than ever hung upon the back of John
Bun) an's Pilgrim.
Let us examine and see what is to come to pass
in case Mr. Polk shall be elected President of, the
United States; and shall continue there for eight
years, as he probably will, if once elected. His
election, which may heaven forbid, and against it
forefentl us. would be but the beginning of the end
—the end of the Union of these States; and the
end of the Republic. with its present boundaries;
and the end of the peace of this continent. Will
not all this come to pass if Mr. Polk shall be elected ;
and shall he able to procure a majority of the Con
gress of the United States to act with him ? Most
certainly they will ; as surely as effect follows the
cause which produces it. Mr. Polk is before the
nation as the Texas annexation candidate; and if
he shall be elected, Texas will certainly become a
part of the United States; and we shall in the end
be obliged to pay a sum of money, variously esti
mated at from fifteen to fifty millions of dollars, to
satisfy the demands of certain persons who say that
Texas is indebted to them. For this sum of money
which the nation must pay, the nation will receive
nothing; for it is admitted, I believe, by all, that
all the land of Tex., that is worth possessing has
already been granted away.
A Senator of the United States, of great name,
and lately high in the confidence of the Locofoco
party has told us, „ the President's house at Vt ash
ington has become," to use his own strong and sig
nificant language, " a Boman] Roost;" that is, as
we must understand him, it has become a rendez
vous of base and corrupt men. of the filthiest possi
ble moral and political condition; and Ire tells us
further that these "Buzzards" are assembled in the
President's house, to prey upon the people of the
United States; and to satiate their appetites with
the money that shall be drawn front the national
treasury under pretence of paying the national debt
of Texas. In order of rank, John Tyler is at pres
ent the king of the vultures.
It may perhaps be hoped that Mr. Polk might
not he able to get a Majority of Congress to act
with him; but let it be remembered that human
nature is weak; and the foreign missions, the cus
tom houses, the judicial dignities of the country, the
army, the navy, the public contracts, the post office,
a share of the Texian plunder, said not to be less
than fifty millions of all sorts of claims; and finally
the treasury itself may be alaughtered and dragged
into the roost, to swell the host of the feast of the
unclean birds, may not hungry members of Cons
gress, scenting the prey from the cast end of Penn
sylvania avenue, as it floats on the west wind, come
and join the carnival of the "Buzzards."
Texas, attached to the United States, would be•
come the terrestrial paradise of slave-holders; and
towards it they would bend their course, as the
Arabs poured into Egypt under the Caliph Omar,
as the Saracens of the middle ages rushed from the
sands of Africa to dwell under the walls of Granada;
or as the faithful marched, sword in hand, to possess
themselves of the plains of Summand.
We have been told that one half of Texas only is
fit for the culture of cotton ; and that the other half
must of necessity be inhabited by farmers and gra
ziers, who it it supposed will not permit slavery to
exist amongst them. Ignorant persons may believe
this; but the whole of Texas, with the exception
of a mere corner lies south of the latitude 33. and
the finest cotton and sugar regions of the United
States lie between 30 and 33.
Annex Texas to the United States, and it will
' become exclusively the abode of slave holders. Her
present constitution forbids the abolition of Slavery
within her limits, and are we to suppose that if the
friends of the " peculiar institution" shall become
strong enough in Congress, to introduce their bent
ling into the Union, that they will compel tree to
part with her first and indeed her only love,
Only give to Penis and slavery the protective
power of the constitution and laws of the United
States; and the world will look in vain for the ter
mination of American bondage. Texas forming a
pert of the United States, will become a region of
i slaves; and under the three-fifth provision of the
1 second section of the first article of the constitution
of the United States, we and our posterity will, in
all time to come, so long as we live under the eon-
stitution of the United States, be and remain the
bond-men and bond-women of the slave-holding
States. Under this article of the constitution there
have been ever since its formation, about thirty
members of Congress, who hold their seats not as
the representatives of freemen, but of slavery ; and
it is to these thirty slave representatives, who have
been a greater curse to the country, than the thirty
tyrants were to ancient Athens, that we owe moat
if not all of the bad legislation of Congress. By
I the votes of these thirty, slavery was permitted to
pas. the Mississippi river, and to occupy Missouri
and Arkansas. The same thirty votes have always
opposed the agricultural and manufacturing industry
try of the middle and northern States, and have uni
formly sustained the Free Trade doctrines of Vir
ginia and South Carolina.
Mr. Polk is the candidate of these thirty slave
representatives. Ho is the candidate of the Texas
annexationists. He is the candidate of the authors
of the 21st rule. He is a slave-holder himself, and
the candidate of the advocates of perpetual slavery.
lie is the candidate of those who avow their deter
mination to extend the system of American slavery
to a vast region of country, so far removed from the
free population of the middle States, as to be effect
ually shut out from that controlling moral power
which liberty always did, and always must, and al
ways will exercise and maintain over slavery where
ever the two forms of government come into juxta
position. How will the oppressor be reached in the
far off regions of Texas I
Is it sufficient for us to refuse to give our votes to
such a man as this, when it is proposed to make
him President of the United States;—would not
his election be the greatest evil that could befall not
only this Country, but the cause of Freedom
throughout the world?--we have undertaken to put
in practice a system of government, unique in its
form; unlike all others, that have ever teen known
among men ; and the eyes of all civilized
nations are constantly upon us, watching our pro
gress, in our new and untroddcn path.
Conscious that we have truth and justice on our
side; and that much of the loftiest talent, and pro
foundest learning of the country are with us; let
us not become vainglorious; nor persuade ourselves
that those who differ from us,may not also believe that
they are in the right way—above all things, let us
not refuse to learn wisdom from the experience of
the times in which we live. Our object is, not to
destroy our adversaries, but to convert and reform
them. When the first apostles of Christianity
went forth to reclaim the world, they appeared
amongst sinners, not as their enemies, but as their
friends; and wherever they found those who were
willing to listen to their doctrines, they abode with,
and taught them; but shook off the dust of their
feet, against the inhabitants of that city, who re
viled and cast stones at them. Will it not be well
for us to go and imitate the Apostles? Let us see
how we are to do this.
It is not many years since Anti-Masonry took its
rise as a political party; and yet the Anti-Masons
have elected ono President, several Governors, nu.
merous members of Congress and State Legislators;
and have found their creeds and opinions of gov
ernment, finally adopted by the whole of the great
party, which under the name of Whigs, are seek
ing to maintain the cause of free government and
national Independence at this day, against the ty
ranny of Southern slavery. How have the Anti-
Masons accomplished all this? Simply by seeking
and accepting alliances, wherever and whenever
they were to be found—by opposing those who op
posed their own doctrines and by acting in concert
with those who held like principles with themselves.
With regret and humility, that the world is so
blinded by ignorance and selfishness, we must con
cede, that as a political party we ore, when compar
ed with the nation at large, a feeble minority, in
' numbers. It behooves us, maintaining the purity of
our tenets, to seek the aid of numbers; to add
weight to the justice of our cause. To whom shall
we look for this aid? Shall wo seek it amongst
those who hate and revile us; or will we not rather
expect it amongst those who have treated us with
the kindness of friends? How has it happened
that the Whigs and Antimasons, have become uni
ted as one party? Most certainly, because it was
found that their principles were the same.
Let us examine who have been our warmest
friends, and who have been our constant enemies.
And first as to the great constitutional question
of the right of petition. In support of this vital
principle, both the Whigs and Antimasons, have
marched at our head with our petitions in their
hands; up to the very ramparts of the Constitu
tion, and beyond those ramparts, neither we nor
they should wish or attempt to pass. Whilst
that party, of which Mr. Polk is the temporary
head has assailed us at every step of our progress
with all the weapons of savage warfare, mixed pro.
fusely with the poisoned arrows of slander. Shall
we turn away from those friends .d allies, who
have fought side by side with us—nay, who have
led us in many a well contested field, and virtually
give our votes to those who have long sought and
who yet seek our destruction. In the coming Pre
, aidentiol election to withhold our votes from the
is in effect to give them to the Loco Focos.
This is proved by the issue of the late Governor's
election in Pennsylvania—where it is almost m
ini') that the Liberty men defeated the Whig candi
date by supporting a candidate of their own.
No traveller who sets out to visit the summit of
a lefty mountain ever takes the steepest way, be-
cause it is the shortest and most direct—he winds
his footsteps along the sides of the eminence, gain
ing continually upon his object, although at times
he may seem to he moving quite away in a differ
ent direction.
It now becomes necessary to ascertain what posi
tion we shall occupy in the event of the election of
Henry Clay to the Presidency of the U. States.
With regard to the man himself we cannot be
under any misapprehension—ho is a stern uncom
promising Whig bold, daring. resolute and frank
in his character; but a relentless slaveholder; and
apparently not less strongly wedded to the system of
human bondage than Mr. Polk himself. But in
every particular, except the principle and practice
of slavery, there aci•ms to be a wide difference be
tween thecharacters of the men. Henry Clay has
led the Legislative councils of his country for near
ly forty years; and during ell that period, he has
been the eloquent advocate of the rights of hie
country. In all the great party divisions. for twen
ty-five years past, whit the single exception of the
Missouri case, wherever Congress has been divided
between the supposed interests of the north and
south, he has token part with the former. Indeed i
so long has he been distinguished in Congress for I
his defence of the interest and claims of the Free
States; that we have lo.iked upon him almost as ,
the property of the non-slave holding States; and since
the unhappy vote on the Missouri question ; has
he ever deserted us in a single instaace or turned
his hack upon us, even in the worst of times; or I
failed to exec this all commanding eloquence in de
of the Northern people, whenever their rights
have been in jeopardy—and shell we now, after he
has served the people of the Free States, for forty
years, faithfully, with a single exception, adhering
to us and to our interests, through good and through
evil report, abandon hint in the evening of his days
—and for whom, fora better or a greater man De
sert Henry Clay of Kentucky, for James K. Polk I
of Tennessee! ! Mr. Polk is like Milton's forbid
den tree; the eating of whose fruit will firing death
into the world with all our woe; will we by our I
votes at the coining election, bring into this Union
a country whose inhabitants have declared by their
fundamental constitution that elavery shall he per
petual; and so scatter the apples of this tree of
moral, political and netionel death far and wide,
from east to west over the land. If by the misdi
rection of out votes Mr. Polk should be elected, tee
slran Ming all these evils tr,..on our coui.ny. upon
ourselves, and upon posterity ; and give an I
immedicable wound to the came of hunum lit , eriy.
If Henry Clay Mall be elected President. the
country will certainly he safe for the next four y en ,
He stands pledged nut to give hie assent to the ad
mission of 'rex. unless the monstire shall be called
for by the people of the Free States; and he is too
proud to follow the low example of Mr. Tyler.—
We can at least feel assured that Henry Clay will
not desert his friends ; the tenor of the man's whole
life, places him infinitely above all suapicion of
meanness; and as he must know that his election
will depend on our votes, we niay feel confident
that he will never throw our petitions under his
For twenty-five yenta Henry Clay hos been con-
sidered by the great mass of the slave-holders them
selves, rather as a northern than a southern man.—
His votes and hie speeches prove that they understood
his character. He will he elected by the people of
the Free States, (un'ess we defeat ;tin election by
refusing to vote for him) and when he conies to the
Chief Magistracy of the country, lie must of ne
cessity bring with hint a lartf,e share of northern
feeling. In addition to all this he will be surroun
ded by northern men, and must listen to northern
advice and counsel; for he will be obliged to rely
upon the Representatives of the Free States to
sustain the measures of his administration, and bear
him through in his efforts to ameliorate the condi
tion of the country and to advance the hsppiness of
the people. Under the administration of Henry
Clay, if our cause makes no progress, it will re
ceive no check ; but under that of his antagonist it
must inevitably be retarded for centuries, if it is
not ruined forever; and between the two we must
choose,—there is no other alternative—and can we
hesitate or hilt between the two opinions for a
Behold and 10, my friends upon what a proud
eminence wo stand this day. But yesterday we
w; re hated, ( lespised we coal not be) and perse
cuted even among our fellow citizens of the Free
States, and to day we are invoked by our country,
as a great power, haling in our handy the election
of her Chief Magistrate, and controlling and gui
ding her destiny in all thne to come—and shall pos
terity say that the first act of our political power
was to rivet endless slavery upon our fellow man
in the land of our fathers, the land of our birth, and
the land of our posterity.
We profess to he actuated by principles of the
broadest and most univertial charity ; and shall we
permit the world to say that we possess less of this
first element of a great moral reformation, than
others do. The Antimasons are a powerful politi
cal party as their achievements have shown—at
least as numerous as we aro ; and certainly Henry
Clay has offended us much against them, us he ever
offended against us; and we see that they, sacrifi
cing all personal and minor considerations upon the
Altar of their country; and in view of his lofty at
tainments, his lung services, his tried fidelity, and
his patriotism, which like pure gold, has but shone
the brighter by passing through the fire in which
hie enemies had hoped to consume him, stand forth
as one man every where in support of the great
Statesman—the friend of Protection to the free la
bor of the country.
It was necessary for us to make a demonstration
of our power, that the country and the world should
know the extent of it; but it is not necessary, nor
is it expedient that in the exhibition of that power,
we should inflict an irreparable injury upon our
country, ourselves, and upon the cause of freedom
and justice throughout the world.
It is now shown, that if we are not a majority of
the nation, we are at least so powerful, that no po
litical party dare to disregard, or treat us with injus
, tice in future. Let us in the approachingsmighty
contest, a contest which may justly be likened to
the war between the good and evil principles of the
I Hindus Mythology, take that side which our con
( sciences tell us hos the right ; and as no man ever
repented of having done a good action, we shall be
sure of our reward, for we shall carry it in our own
acing immolated our predilections at the shrine
of the public safety, and done our duty at the pre
sent, we shall he able to say in the year 1848, to
those who will then find our votes as necessary as
they find them now :
Gentlemen and fellow-freemen, we were not
consulted by ycu, in the arrangements of the cam
paign of 1844, but we came to your rescue and
fought as volunteers, in the great battle between
freedom end slavery, which terminated that contest.
We now demand to be heard and advised with in
the choice of a candidate for the Chief Magistracy
of these United States."
