Senator Douglas and the Opposition Press
(Column 1)Summary: It is clear that the Opposition party is beginning to notice and talk about the inconsistency and lack of across-the-scale support for Senator Douglas among Democrats, especially over his territorial policy. While the Vindicator opposes Douglas's nomination as presidential candidate, it would no doubt support him over any Black Republican candidate.[No Title]
(Column 1)Summary: The papers found in Brown's possession after his capture demonstrate beyond a doubt the existence of a northern conspiracy against slavery. The Vindicator suggests that the states that are home to those complicit in the affair should deliver up those absent co-conspirators for persecution in order to restore harmony between the regions.
