This now, men of Ohio, more than
ever, is tho ieeue pefore you. The
revolusionawy purpose of the Admin
istration to perpetuato, by intimida
tion or force, its power in tho States
und in the General Government,
stands now fully revealed. Next.
after this declaration of martial law,
will follow tho.armed seizure and oc
cupation of jour Stit'e by Federal ;
troops, to intimidate or overpower
you ut tho polls. But this monstrous
purpose will not and can not be exe
cuted, exeept tho people enngo or
cower beforo the threat or tho attemp
ted execution. The time, therefore,
has now arrived for the renewed, sol
emn, inexorabl6 'declaration n n d"
pledge, by the people to each othor,
throuli the pres3 and in public ha
scmblaC:?, thut they mean to main
tain their liberties at every hazard,
an l to have and to bold, (roe elections,
peaceably if they can", forcibly if they
must. By the Constitution ot Ohio
no soldier or marine of the United
States can gain a residence or become
a citizen and elector of tho Sthte . by
boing stationed within her limits.
