Gag Rule passed in Congress

Here is notice that a gag rule has been passed; there is not enough room to publish it this edition of the paper, but it is labeled as “more odious, more insulting” to the lovers of liberty than any other preceding rule.  It says that no memorial, no petition, nor any other paper urging abolition is to be received or entertained in any way whatever.  It should excite the “disgust and indignation” of any genuine lover of liberty in the Free states.
