Full Text Transcription

The indignation meeting held at Brooklyn was an ovation: The Mayor presided. The large Hall in which the people assembled would not begin to contain the crowd. Another meeting was organized in front of the City Hall. We have no space for the resolutions or for a detail of proceedings. We see that our friend Briggs, of Cleveland, was called out and made an effective speech.

Beyond the brief notices which the telegraph brings, we do not pretend to keep pace with the outburst of public indignation from one end of the country -- (we should perhaps say Free States, but that includes about all there is of the country worth saving) -- from one end of the country to the other, from Maine to the Lakes. There seems -- there should be but one sentiment pervading the minds of honorable men who love and intend practically to sustain our free institutions. That there are others, only shows the presence of disease in the body politic that needs eradicating.
