Friday, AnsiMt 10, 1800.
Why Jir. Baxter Should Not be
There nro many cogent reasons why
Mr. H.ixtcr shouUl uot again bo a cau
didato for Congress. First, bo has no
claims upon tho office Ho has not
displayed any marked ability, nor has
ho grappled with tho groat and impor
tant questions of tho day in any other
than a fecblo manner. Tho most that
his most ardent friends can, or do,
claim for him is, ho has been kind and
attentive to soldiers. And for this 1ms
ho not fully received his reward at tho
hands of tho peoplo of this District,
who havo given him three elections ?
There is no need at present for tho
kind of services, valnablo as thoy are,
which Mr. "Baxter has rendered his
country; and, therefore, ought ho not
to gracefully rctiro from the contest
with tho laurels ho won in tho hospi
tals in and around Washington ? Con
siderable opposition, as is well known,
was raised two years ago against Mr.
Baxter's third nomination; ho much
so that Ill's friends wcro at ono timo
fearful that ho would not obtain it. To
quiot this opposition was no easy task;
nor would it have been done had thoro
not been an earnest desiro on tho part
of Mr. Baxter's oppononts to provent
dissentions in tho Union party in this
District, and a positive, unequivocal
and authoritative declaration mado
that Mr. Baxter would not in any event
ask for n fourth nomination. Havo
Mr. Baxter's friends forgotten tho dec
laration thoy then mado ? No, they
cannot havo forgotten it Thoy mado
it to cheat the people, and procuro Mr.
Baxter's nomination, as thoy aro now
making falso statements to procuro his
fourth nomination. DoUho pooplo ap
provo of such political treachery and
cheating ? Wo behove not.
Second, grave charges of corruption
nro brought against Mr. Baxtor, which
it is insisted can bo proven; but, ad
mitting for tho sako of argumont that
theso charges aro not truo, ought wo
'not to havo a mcmbor of Concress
from this District who is beyond and
nbovo even the suspicion of corruption.
Mr. Baxter's courso cannot bo unex
ceptionable or lfo nover would havo
givon occasion for theso chargos, bo
thoy truo or falso. No such charges
woro over brought against Collamcr or
Foot, or Poland, or Edmunds, or Mor
rill, or Woodbridgo, and yot all of
theso men havo had, or do have, bitter
opponents. Even in tho exciting Sen
atorial contest botween Mr. Morrill
nnd Judgo Poland, no ono has dared
to call in question Judgo Polnud's hon
esty and integrity, and vico versa,
Third, Mr. Baxtor has moro than
ouco declared, within a very fow
months, that ho did not caro for tho
Hon. Ilomco II. llojt.
It is with prido that wo witness tho
apparent unanimity with which tho
pooplo of this Congressional District
favor tho nomination of Mr. Hoyt for
Congress. Every paper published in
tho District heartily comes to his sup
port, excepting tho St. Albans Messcn
get; nnd that is under tho strongest
obligations to do so, by every conside
ration. Its courso can 6carcoly bo ac
counted for. Indeed, wo assert that
three-fourths of tho sontitnonts of tho
people of this county, if fairly ex
pressed, aro in favor of Judgo Hoyt,
and will cheerfully respond to his
nomination at the Hydopark Conven
tion. The reasons aro obvious. Judgo
Hoyt "was born and reared in our
midst. Tho peoplo know - him, nnd
know that his name lias long been
identified with tins best iutorcsts nnd
prosperity of this county. Thtfy have
often trusted him, nnd know that he
hns nhvnys proved, and will again
prove, faithful to tho trust imposed in
him. His political career is ns familiar
as his character is unimpeachable
When Bully Brooks assaulted Mr.
Sumner in" tho Scnato ot tho United
Sintcs, our townsman characterized it
as a blow struck by slavery, by its rep
resentative, at tho cause of freedom.
From that day to tho present, Judge
Hoyt has ever raised his voice in .open
denunciation of tho men who rejoiced
over tho dastardly act, and tho meas
ures thoy sought to promote by it.
He was tho first to respond to tho call
of tho country when in danger, by
pledging his undivided support for the
suppression of tho rebellion, nnd in
sisting upon conquering an honorable
peaco. Ho was a strong adherent to
Mr. Lincoln's administration and pol
icy, and will over continuo to bo. Ho
likewise contributed towards" its suc
cessful termination. Since then ho has
evinced much 3olicitudo for tho future
prosperity of tho country. Let the
peoplo rally to his support on the 15th
of August at Hydopark, nnd wo pledge
our word for it that ho will over prove
a faithful representative of tho inter
ests and wishes of his native Stato.
tho management of
Nomination or Judge Poland.
Will you lot a poison who is not nd
dictod to doling out advico to his fol-low-votors,
givo u fow reasons why tho
present political controllers of this
Congressional District should bo put
aside, and tho nconlo niflorod to tako
into their him :1s
their own affairs?
1st. Tho wire-workers pulled, the
wool over the District mid, got Mr.
Baxtor nominated in 1 801 a third timo
in defiance of tho two toi ins rule, which
said Baxter and his friends used to tho
injury of tho Hon. Homor E. Itoyco,
Tho ricoplo heard that ho had done so
much for,tho.poor soldier, nnd4that his
estimable wifo had lost her health in
tho same good work, and so they said
Amen, so moto it bo. Ho was elect
ed, and that ought to wipe out all his
claims and cancel them.
2d. There never was nny political or
moral reason why Portus Baxtor should
havo over received any nomination for
tho office of member of Congress in
lion of lion. Homer E. Boyco, Licut.
Gov. Lovi Underwood, Prof. Geo. W.
Benedict, or Hon. Samuol Adams of
Grand Isle. Tho fact that ho got the
nomination was owing to tho skill of
tho wire-pullers and managers who aro
now BceKing to tiirust nun lorwani
ngain. Success is by no moans a test
3d. I am going up to Hydopark next
week, to see how tho good peoplo I
may find thero will like the fourth
thrust of Mr. Baxtor upon tho suffrage
of this District. It is said all tho
horses havo been hired from tho live
ry stnblo where I commonly get one
when I havo money enough to pay for
a drive, and that if I go, I must go on
Shank's mare. That's all very well.
This I can do by starting a fow days
boforo tho 15th of August; and I in
tend to tako a friend nloiir. Go, I
must and will.
ltu. As to men, 1 havo 110111111" in
particular to say ; but this much: any
thing but tho fourth nomination of tho
present incumbent. Wo may do bet
tor. Wo cau't do worse. At present
my standard-bcaror must bo the gon-
tlcman you named in your last issue.
I me.ui the Hon. Judgo Hoyt, of St
Annum Bostwick, Esq., who was a
resident of Jericho, Chiltouden

should not again receive tho support
of any honest man. Thoso rensons
stand unchallenged. Tho only ans
wer to them is an increased activity
on tho part, of tho wiro-pullors, and
somo of tho oflico holders, in their at
tempt to pack tho Convention for Mr.
Baxtor. His tools aro scouring the
district hiring, Hvery'stablo teams in
advance, to go tho Convention, and
hiring tho meu who are to rido in
them Tho peoplo may bo suro that
I whoever can bo induced by nionov or
persuasion to go to Hydopark, in Mr.
Baxter's interest, will bo there, and
thoso who do not propose longer to
submit to tho rulo of corruption in
this district must mako thoir arrange
ments accordingly. Fortunately the
men who can be hired to do such dir
ty work, with the postmaster and oth
ors whoso personal and pecuniary in
terest is involved in ono way and nu
othor in the return of tho present in
cumbent, form n very small fraction of
tho peoplo; and n number of them
have already seeu tho handwriting on
tho wall, and havo becomo very luko
wnrm for Mr. Baxtor. All that is
needed is that the peoplo shall, for
onco, bo at somo pains to show tho
iuterost thoy feel in this matter. Tho
livery teams may bo hired by Mr.
Baxter's understrappers; but tho farm
wagons aro not. Lot the honest yeo
men of tho district turn out, for onco,
and tako this matter into their own
hands. They cannot bo bought; let
them seo to it that thoso who can aro
not allowed to override tho preferen
ces of tho pooplo, and force ngnin up
on tho party ono who is utterly un
worthy to represont honest men and
