[Harrisburg? 1845]. 16pp, stitched, untrimmed. Some spotting, Good+.
A rare pamphlet. Democrats denounce the "unnatural coalition of the Whigs and Native Americans, and a few Democrats, so called, who have proved recreant to the principles of their party."
This coalition elected Simon Cameron, the Whig candidate, to fill the vacancy left when Senator James Buchanan resigned to become President Polk's Secretary of State. That the Democratic candidate, George Woodward, lost is a "humiliating spectacle"-- "No promises or pledges were left untried to effect the object of an ambition that appeared to be limited to the object of promoting some personal purposes." Vice President Dallas and Buchanan decline to comment.
