STAN

Fourteenth-That the National Republican party is opposed to any change in our naturalization laws, or any State legislation by which the rights of citizenship, bitherto accorded to immigrants from foreign lands shall be abridged or impaired, and in favor of giving a full and efficient protection to the rights of all classes of citizens, whether native or naturalized, both at home or abroad.

Fifteenth-That appropriations by Congress for river and harbor improvements of a national character, required for the accommodation and security of an existing commerce, are authorized by the constitution, and justified by an obligation of the government to protect the lives and property of its citizens.

Sixteenth-That a railroad to the Pacific Ocean is imper. atively demanded by the interests of the whole country ; that the federal government ought to render immediate and efficient aid in its construction, and that, as preliminary thereto, a daily overland mail should be promptly established.

Seventeenth-Finally, having thus set forth our distinctive principles and views, we invite the co-operation of all citizens, however differing on other questions, who substantially agree with us in their affirmance and support.

And of our nation be the pride,

Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah !
While Douglas shall remain below,
And his own horn still have to blow.

Abe is the man, an honest man,
He is the man for me.

HURRAH FOR ABE LINCOLN:

Tune" Boatman Dance.”

STA

HURRAH! hurrah! did you hear the news ?

The Democrats have got the blues ;
They're puzzled now, and all afraid,
Because we've nominated ABE.

Then shout, freemen, shout!
Shout, freemen, shout!

We'll all unite

And bravely fight
For the Star of Freedom's dawning.

Hi! ho! we'll put them through,
Split their rails, and haul them too ;
Hi! ho! we'll put them through,
Split their rails, and haul them too.

In all their ranks they can not find

A candidate to suit their mind;
They kick and squirm, but 'tis no use,
Their game is up, their platform's loose.

Then shout, freemen, shout!
Shout, freemen, shout!

We'll all unite

And bravely fight!
For the Star of Freedom's dawning.

Hi! ho! etc.
