Alien Voters 1864

"We present the names of a sweet-scented crowd in this issue--sneaks and copperheads--
who on the day of the last charter election voted for Sherman.

Just as soon as there was a remote prospect of a draft, this fragrant crowd
started straight for the British Counsul's office, and secured their "exemption papers."

These are the chaps who have loudly prated in years gone by, of their regard for the
Constitution and laws.  The Irish element of course largely predominates.

Today we give the list in the Third, Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh Wards:
