Every one who has correct infor ly all,1 believe r im great centralized power. Only the other day Senator Miller, of New iYork, said this, speak ing for his party: fi i "We believe that this is a nation, and that the supreme sovereignty of this . country re sales in tlic General Qocernvwnt and not in the States. This is the doctrine of the Re publican party." . jr : i Mark this. Here is stated correct- ly what the Repubficap leaders hold, Do you believe in it? : Oh, reader, do j you hold that the i"suprerne authori-; ty "resides in thei General Govern ment?" : If you I do, then you are a Stalwart, f rieudi of the enemy of civil liberty, of local! self-goyernment; " of the Constitution . as . framed by the wise men of the: past and as expound ed by the ablest men among the framers. If the"supreme authority' resides I fact iiithe' General Government" in then the Government established by our forefathers is overthrown already. Who had heard in seventy-five years, until Radicalism came in as a great controlling power, of the General Government being the Master ? Who jver heard of the United States be ing a Nation-r-a strong J consolidated power until Radicalism began its war upon the Constitution and upon the people? - Let us go to Boston and get a clear reply to this New York Senator, who appears to nave lost signt ot tnat ... - grand instrument--the Constitution whicK is the ipeopressiiferd and break-water against the incoming tide ofespotisy.RajthVBoton ' 'The bembcratiearty ilfeves mat su- vreme sovereiaiitu r tne PThe:?

If they will stick With armed force, the will use 4 a weapon that will prove too much for the Liberal Ministry and too much for Tory preferences.
