izens to office, h'.a principles in favor of liberty to
all men, as the paramount duty of political and le
gislative action, shall be the first political testenti

8. Resolved, That the giant curse of the land,
against which we mutually pledge to each other a
war of extermination, has recently shown its all
controlling power, by setting its foot upon the
necks of both of the great conventions at Baltimore.
In the one, it killed John Davis for Latimer, and
in the other it annihilated Van Buren for Texas.
4. Resolved, That Clay, Polk and Tyler, who
rule over slaves and glory in professing that they
seek to make tint rule perpetual, are unfit to be
the rulers of a free people.

alliances with those political parties, which, false

6. Resolved, That the Whig and Democratic
parties, so called, are chained to the car of slave

either of those parties.
7. Resolved, That we are in favor of protecting

of Alanson Work, formerly a citizen of Vermont,
now incarcerated in the State prison in Missouri,
for assisting a fellow being to escape from slave
