Attention,
DEMOCRATS AND CONSERVATIVES!
Rally to the Polls!
The test-oath in the present constitution,
although modified by the Legislature, has dis-
franchised 10, 000 of our citizens. THIS DAY you
strike for liberty.
If you are worthy to be free,
VOTE FOR THE CONVENTION !
If you are opposed to inequality and oppression,
VOTE FOR THE CONVENTION !
If you are not radicals,
VOTE FOR THE CONVENTION!
All the Votes Against the Convention will be
Counted for your Enemies.
You cannot avoid the issue. The crisis is upon
you, and if you fail now, you are unworthy of
liberty. Would Jackson have been bullied out
of his rights? Did not Clay say that he would
rather be right than President? Awake, arouse,
or be forever degraded in the eyes of the Ameri-
can people. Send back a cheer to old Connecti-
cut that Maryland marches to the music of the
Constitution and the Union! By order of
THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE,
JAMES R. BREWER, Chairman.
The Democrats and Conservatives held a convention
and adopted the following statement and resolutions:
Address to the People of Baltimore.
FELLOW-CITIZENS: The representatives of the Demo-
cratic and conservative party having met in convention to
organize for the protection of the constitution and the
Union, and to ensure to each and all the blessings that flow
from regulated liberty, send hopeful greeting to the citi-
zens of Baltimore.
The war is past and peace reigns over all the States
and Territories—every party in arms against the gov-
ernment has been disbanded, and patriots are everywhere
seeking to renew that fraternal alliance of State and
people which has advanced us to the front rank of nations.
But in the midst of congratulations we have been startled
by the announcement of principles subversive of the theory
