Populāri fragmenti

35. lappuse - Palladium of your political safety and prosperity; watching for its preservation with jealous anxiety; discountenancing whatever may suggest even a suspicion that it can in any event be abandoned, and indignantly frowning upon the first dawning of every attempt to alienate any portion of our Country from the rest, or to enfeeble the sacred ties which now link together the various parts.
55. lappuse - The constitution regulates our stewardship ; the constitution devotes the domain to union, to justice, to defence, to welfare, and to liberty. But there is a Higher Law than the constitution, which regulates our authority over the domain, and devotes it to the same nolle purposes.
47. lappuse - God, that if by your legislation you seek to drive us from the territories of California and New Mexico, purchased by the common blood and treasure of the whole people, and to abolish slavery in this District, thereby attempting to fix a national degradation upon half the States of this Confederacy...
30. lappuse - We had a regular flare up in the last meeting, and at the call of Calhoun I told them briefly what we were at. I told him that the union of the South was neither possible nor desirable until we were ready to dissolve the Union. That we certainly did not intend to advise the people now to look anywhere else than to their own government for the prevention of apprehended evils.
54. lappuse - President, instead of speaking of the possibility or utility of secession, instead of dwelling in those caverns of darkness, instead of groping with those ideas so full of all that is horrid and horrible, let us come out into the light of day; let us enjoy the fresh air of Liberty and Union...
44. lappuse - Neither slavery^ nor involuntary servitude, unless for the punishment of crimes, shall ever be tolerated in this State.
54. lappuse - Constitution and the harmony and peace of all who are destined to live under it. Let us make our generation one of the strongest and brightest links in that golden chain which is destined, I fondly believe, to grapple the people of all the States to this Constitution for ages to come.
116. lappuse - Fowler (William Chauncey). The Sectional Controversy; or, Passages in the Political History of the United States, including the Causes of the War between the Sections, with Certain Results.
32. lappuse - I see little prospect of arresting the aggression of the North. If anything can do it, it would be for the South to present with an unbroken front to the North the alternative of dissolving the partnership or of ceasing on their part to violate our rights and to disregard the stipulations of the Constitution in our favour; and that too without delay.
54. lappuse - I would not take pains to reaffirm an ordinance of Nature, nor to reenact the will of God. And I would put in no Wilmot Proviso, for the purpose of a taunt or a reproach.
