Full Text Transcription

[pointing finger] The abolitionists, free soilers, and free soil whigs, the Boston Post thinks, had better save their breath to cool their porridge, instead of wasting it in denunciation of the Nebraska bill. The efforts of Charles Sumner and Mr. Chase, in the U. S. Senate, and Giddings & Co., in the House of Representatives, backed by Garrison, Wilson, Rev. Charles Hudson &., inMassachusetts, will only demonstrate The weakness of their cause, and hasten the question at issue in accordance with the great fundamental principle of republican government: the right of the people to govern themselves; the right of citizens in Territories and States to establish such laws as they may deem best for their own control, providing they do not conflict with the Constitution of the United States.
