Full Text of Article:Monday Night!
Once More to the Breach!
RALLY FOR THE CONSTITUTION! !
Boom on old Gun! !
This is the last issue of the Vindicator previous to the grand demonstration on the 6th of November--next Tuesday. We can only say the cause of the country is in the hands of the friends of Douglas and Johnson. Let each man rest sensibly under his obligation, and for this once rise to that magnitude of manhood which is commensurate with the immense issue of the Canvass--Union or Disunion--Douglas or Breckinridge. Every man must be up and doing. A little work--active exertions, will redeem Virginia from the suspicion of Disunion, and Douglas and the Constitution will triumph over Whiggery, Know Nothingism, Congressional Slave Codes, and every species of heresy and treachery.--Once more to the breach! On ye braves, and strike this decisive blow for your country and her cause! If fanaticism be beaten down and crushed on this occasion, then farewell to it! We are safe! Our household idols and our domestic tranquility, which rest under the aegis of the Union, will be vindicated and secured and prosperity will follow in our footsteps as a people and nation. Homes, hearths, liberty, and union depend upon present action! Strike! for your alters and your fires! Strike! for the green graves of your sires! God and your native land!
