Summary:
This Extra issue of the Republican herald prints a letter from the former governor of Massachusetts, Marcus Morton, dated at Taunton, Aug. 27, 1842. Morton declares that the circumstances in Rhode Island (relating to the Dorr Rebellion) are of national concern. He states that the Whig Government almost unanimously supports government under the old Charter, and the Democratic newspapers support the new Constitution. Morton defends himself against charges of interfering in Rhode Island affairs. Although he asserts his neutrality, the letter clearly sides with Dorr and his supporters.
