New York:

THE RESULT OF THE N. Y. STATE ELECTION; ITS CAUSES AND CONSEQUENCES. OXFORD REPUBLICAN. EXTRA- DECEMBER, 1846.

[Albany?: 1846?] 22, [1], [1 blank] pp. Caption title [as issued]. Printed in double columns, disbound, scattered foxing. Good+. An examination of the surprising Whig triumph in the just-concluded New York State elections, in five Letters. The author attributes the Whig sweep to a concerted effort by the Anti-Renters against Democratic Governor Silas Wright, who had vigorously suppressed mobs who had engaged in "organized and armed resistance against the collection of rents" from leasehold estates in the Albany area. "Riotous and insurrectionary assemblages of armed men were almost daily witnessed, and flagrant outrages upon persons and property, were matters of common occurrence, committed with entire impunity." Wright became their target in the 1846 elections. AI 46-6014 [5]. Sabin 70118 [Albany Atlas Extra, dated December 1846; printed, says Sabin, in 1847]. Not in Eberstadt, Decker.
