DOWN WITH THE HELPER TREASON. – The black republicans have circulated hundreds of thousands of Helper’s handbooks of treason, endorsed by sixty-eight black republican members of Congress. It depends upon the loyal and true men of New York to stop this treasonable revolution. You are one of them. Go and vote early, and call your neighbor to vote early too; but be sure that you vote early yourself.
