371 - DTD Aug. 7; ed:2/2 - "Sagacious minds, as if by instinct, snuff
tyranny, as it taints the breeze, afar off, and prepare to meet it. Dan-
iel Webster, in an earlier and better day, foresaw the coming of the
hour, when free speech would be assailed in our Republic....

"Yet where is it enjoyed? Where does free speech exist as a reality. In the Slave South it is not even asserted. It was only the other day we received a notice from a subscriber there, saying, 'I am not allowed to take out your paper and read it.' This home-bred right which years ago Mr. Webster declared, boldly, 'is not to be drawn even into discussion. This 'high constitutional privilege' sacred alike in private and in public both as a principle, and a duty, which he was willing to defend 'within Congress and without Congress,' and which should be defended 'in all places in time of war, in time of peace at all times' - this birth-right of Freedom is in peril. The great indignant words of the heroic poet should be at this time and on this theme, in the hearts and upon the lips of every Freeman."

Is this the land our fathers loved?
The Freedom which they toiled to win?
Is this the soil whereon they moved?

Are those the graves they slumber in?
Thirteen more verses are printed.
