Newspaper. 59 cm. 4 pp.Three columns of political verse inside a broad typographical border, typical of such addresses, but this one printed in the regular newspaper. Extremely critical of [Kentucky politician James G.] Birney who, its avers, "let in Polk to keep out Clay./ A madder act, 'tis not to try/ To quench the sun to scare a fly./ As on the banks of the Rio Grande/ The future slave of Texas stands/ And sees his children from him torn/ To bear the wrongs which he has borne." At the end in bold type: " Oh don't forget the orphan boy,/ Who brings the weekly Union." OCLC: Brown Univ., Maine State Lib. Item #64328
