Portland, Maine, Advertiser [Republican]
(23 May 1856)
The News by Telegraph shows that the
Minions of slavery and the Border Ruffians are
doing their own work, both in Kansas and at
Washington! The dastardly and perhaps
murderous attack on Senator Sumner is on a par with
their whole course. How long will the people of
the Free States tamely submit to such outrages?
How long will men permit themselves to be used
by mere force of party discipline, to sustain such
outrages? -- and all that a few mean men, who
claim to be leaders of the democratic party, may
secure to themselves offices and political power!
The crisis is rapidly approaching!
