Full Text Transcription

-- The N. H. Democrat says, what is true of our opponents here as well as elsewhere, that "no portion of our people seem to be so much pleased with the Sumner row and the Kansas troubles as our fusion abolitionists. If Sumner had been killed it would have suited them better. They ought to send a fighting man out to cane Brooks. But their favorite idea is to stand at a distance and talk big, and pass wordy resolutions to make political capital here. -- It is not slavery in Kansas which troubles them. The spoils of office is what they are looking after."
