When Mr. Webater rose ln his place In tha
Senate of the I'nited States- January 26. 1830?
to reply to Mr. Hayne, of South C'arollna. and
made what Is now admittod to be the most cele
brated gpeecb everdellvered ln thla country. on
the charaeter of our polltleal system aa a gov

"When the marlner has been toase.I for many

What advice could be more appllcable to tha

Fnqtiestionably the llrst or startlng point ln

point. aqually unqueatlonable, is that thls feei

The third point lr. rd-r of Importanee for con
