This Extra has a number of obscure references, doubtless familiar only to a very few aficionados of early New Hampshire politics. But its focus is an attack on Samuel Bell, now an anti-Jackson, pro- John Quincy Adams U.S. Senator from New Hampshire, and more recently its Democratic Governor. This bitter broadside recounts Bell's machinations and, in a reference to the celebrated 'bargain-and-sale' controversy of 1824, asserts: "Who can doubt, after all the circumstances which have been developed, that Samuel Bell has bargained away the people of New-Hampshire to Mr. Adams, any more than that Henry Clay bargained away the votes of the Western States at the last Presidential election?"
