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...
55. lappuse - But there is a higher law than the Constitution, which regulates our authority over the domain, and devotes it to the same noble purposes.

51. lappuse - I think — although I believe this project contains about an equal amount of concession and forbearance on both sides — have asked from the free states of the North a more liberal and extensive concession than should be asked from the slave states. And why, sir ? With you, gentlemen Senators of the free states, what is it ? An abstraction, a sentiment — a sentiment, if you please, of humanity and philanthropy — a noble sentiment, when directed rightly, with no sinister or party purposes ;...
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.
