An official address was adopted, which stated in part: "Let us gird ourselves up manfully and contend for the removal of our grievances... In our present condition we are an unjustly degraded people, for we are stripped more or less in this State of the privileges and franchises which are fully enjoyed by every class of our white fellow-citizens." "And for this redress, and in order to secure our immunities against any future encroachment upon out interests, the current of all experience points to but one measure and that is threefold, - Education, piety, and wealth."
Permanent officers were elected at the Executive session of the State Central Committee for the ensuing two years : H C Molson, President, Norwich; Albert Freeman, Rome, and C W Robinson, Waterville, Secretaries.
