Buckingham politics - Which is the Republican or Democratic Parly...
Which is the Republican or Democratic Parly .'The claim set up by the Valines ol being Ihe Democratic party is loo ridi ciilinisly absurd to be often noticed. Yet ns they persist in stealing the name, while they advocate doctrines and practice upon principles diametrically opposite lo sound democratic principles, it may be well to prove ihe larceny upon them occassionally. We will call upon the eland n credible witness from Virginia. At Ihe recent election in Virginia, Buckingham County. where Thomas Jefferson received n unanimous vote, always, we believe gave a Whig majority of one hundred nnd two votes. T. Jefferson was the "Apos. tie of Democracy" and Buckingham when Jefferson was alive, gave him a unanimous vote, und now that he is dead gives a handsome Whig majority, what follows? Either that the Jefferson Democrats hnve gone over to "federal Whiggery" or Jef ferson was no Democrat. Which horn of iho dilemma will you take, gentlemen Loco Focos Caledonian.
