Charles Carroll . . .

. . . a grandson of the signer of the Declaration of Independence, and with one exception the largest slaveholder in Maryland, is enthusiastic in his support of the proposition of the President for a compensated emancipation in his State. Charles M. Tarish, also a grandson of the signer, holds the same views.

If Mr. Charles Carroll will come out here and see Dennis Mahoney, Clagget, Clay Dean and other resurrectionists he will find out that he is a fool and an Abolitionist, and don understand the Constitution.
