law, when applied to individuals holding
property in like manner, needs no illustration.
If, on the contrary, they belong to the States
in their individual and separate character,
then the Government would not only have
the right, but would be bound to apply the
revenue to the separate use States. So far
is incontrovertible, which presents the ques
tion, in which of the two characters are the
lands held by the States?
To give a satisfactory answer to this ques
tion, it will be necessary to distinguish be
tween the lands that have lieen ceded by
the States, and those that have b-en purchas
ed by the Government, out of the common
funds of the Union.
The principal cessions were made dy Vir
ginia and Georgia; the former of all the tract
of country between the Ohio, the Mississippi
and the lakes including the States of Ohio,

Indiana, Illinois, ana Aiienigan, and the Ter-
mean the S'-par.:tc and individual use and
