SPEECHES DELIVERED BY THE HON. GEORGE E. PUGH, SENATOR FROM OHIO, AND THE HON. WILLIAM BARKSDALE, REPRESENTATIVE FROM MISSISSIPPI, BEFORE THE DEMOCRATIC MASS MEETING HELD IN BALTIMORE AUGUST 18, 1856.

[Baltimore?]: Printed at the Democratic Standard office, [1856]. 8pp. Caption title, as issued. Disbound. Good+.

In this election year the Democrat Barksdale examines the competition and finds it wanting. The Know Nothing [American] Party "is an oath-bound organization. It fetters the limbs, seals the lips, and ties the tongue of its initiates," all in the service of discriminating against immigrants, "many of them among our most industrious and enterprising citizens." As for the "Black Republican" party, "it sails under a black piratical flag." Pugh similarly warns against the Republican threat to the maintenance of the Union.
