Such an emigration is not extravagant or impossible.
It is for young men and women who propose
to go westward, to remember the cause of freedom
and of their country, and travel southward rather
than northward; to turn to Texas and its mild climate
rather than Wisconsin and its more inclement
air. Let theni associate together, and they may
have at once the strength and comfort of a village
in their new home. It is for the organizations
which have opposed the admission of Texas, to take
measures for the same end, now that that admission
is sure. A twentieth part of the petitioners against
the annexation, may strip the annexation of its
worst evils. It is for men of capital to look to the
interest of the Union, and make such purchases of
land in Texas that they may assist the poor settler
who has no money to establish himself there; but
who has a true heart, and will have a true vote,
when he arrives there. And if these will labor in
the cause, God will w7atch the issue ; and the conquest
of Texas, by the peaceful weapons of truth,
of freedom, of religion, and of right, will be sure.
Here’s what’s next.
