can bo but two great national parties
in this country whilo the constitution

and tho administration of tho Govern

construction is the foundation of tho
Fedoral or Whig party and a strict,
rigid construction of its terms forms
the old Republican or Democratic or
ganization under whatsoever name it

and Domoerats formed a third party,
