The Nigger in the Fence Again

Subject

Black race

Description

This follows "The Negro in the Fence" (May 11). There apparently was a rebuttal in Mr. Hicks' paper, and this article is a rebuttal to the rebuttal. It calls Hicks' statement "a base pandering to the base passions of baser men..." The writer (probably J.R. Watson) says, "We will find a man who will give Hicks one thousand dollars on Mr. Mercer's arrival if he bring any class of persons other than white."

Abstract

Statement by "Copperhead" editor Hicks that A. Mercer and Meigs plan to import black laborers is false, and an attempt to influence voters to supporting Tilton in the June election.
