Under the Refuge of Oppression column, there is a note from the Harrisburg Keystone, with a warning about a “whole-hog abolitionist and amalgamationist, named Flowers,” who is lecturing “farmers of the country into the beauties of marrying their sons and daughters to woolly-headed negroes.”…… “are you in favor of putting negroes on an equality with whites….making them officers, jurymen, judges, sons-in-law,  ….and equals of yourselves and your posterity…”  Then it urges a vote against abolitionists in the election.
