Alabama to boycott Northern merchandise

The  Alabama House of Representatives has passed a fiery preamble and resolution, declaring that it now becomes the duty and interest of Alabama, and all other slaveholding States, to cease commercial intercourse with the Northern States of the Union; and to effect this object, they recommend the people to hold meetings in every county and neighborhood, and resolve not to buy any article of merchandise or manufacture obtained in the Northern States, or procured through any Northern firm or agency.
