Scathing 1829 NH Republican Political Circular Attacks

“HARTFORD CONVENTION MEN IN THEIR UNHOLY PROJECTS”WHILE PROMISING TO “PUNISH THE DECEIVERS, BUT RECLAIM THE DECEIVED”IN THE STATE ELECTIONS Partially Printed circular. Two pages, 6 ¾” x 8 ¼”. Concord, [NH]. January 19, 1829. The document reads, in part: The Object of this Circular is to solicit your aid in furtherance of the election of the candidates above named, and of the candidates for Counselors, Senators, &c. who shall be nominated by the Republican Conventions in the several districts; and of Representatives to the State Legislature. To you, Sir, we say, that an united and a vigorous effort prior to, an on the day of the next election, WILL SECURE US THE VICTORY… furnish your neighbors with all the needful and necessary information to counteract the machinations and the falsehood that may be put in operation by a corrupt and vindictive Aristocracy…For what was BENJAMIN PIERCE proscribed and hunted down in the last year’s election? Had he made himself busy against the New England President? No; this was not his sin. He refused to make himself and instrument in office to persecute his fellow republicans who had declared for Gen. Jackson- he refused to unite with federalists and Hartford Convention men in their unholy projects- he refused to join a cabal of office seekers who has sold themselves to the federal party; and therefore he must be immolated to the altar of party…If we all do our duty on the second Tuesday of March, there cannot be doubt of complete success…On that day, let the watchword of Republicans be, Reform in our State administration: on that day, let our motto be -“Punish the deceivers, but reclaim the deceived!”
