This cartoon accuses Democrats of engaging in vote fraud; in this case, grants of citizenship prior to the end of the legally required waiting period, and repeat voting. The new recruit is of course a working-class Irish-American, who could be working for money (offered by the figure second from the left?), alcohol (note the whiskey bottle), patronage, or other benefits. The portraits on the wall are of Frank Blair and Horatio Seymour (top, l-r), the Democratic national ticket, and John Hoffman (bottom), the Democratic gubernatorial candidate in New York.
