Seite 2 - The support of the State governments in all their rights, as the most competent administrations for our domestic concerns, and the surest bulwarks against anti-republican tendencies : The preservation of the general government in its whole constitutional vigor, as the sheet anchor of our peace at home, and safety abroad...
Seite 15 - Heaven itself has ordained ; and since the preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the republican model of government, are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finally staked, on the experiment intrusted to the hands of the American people.
Seite 16 - No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the Invisible Hand which conducts the affairs of men more than the people of the United States. Every step by which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation seems to have been distinguished by some token of Providential agency.
Seite 91 - L'Italie se déclare prête à entrer en arrangement pour prendre à sa charge une part proportionnelle de la dette des anciens États de l'Église.
Seite 169 - Mains begründen wird, und erklärt sich damit einverstanden, daß die südlich von dieser Linie gelegenen deutschen Staaten in einen Verein zusammentreten, dessen nationale Verbindung mit dem Norddeutschen Bunde der nähern Verständigung zwischen beiden vorbehalten bleibt und der eine internationale unabhängige Existenz haben wird.
Seite 7 - I cannot too strongly urge a dispassionate treatment of this subject, which should be carefully kept aloof from all party strife. We must equally avoid hasty assumptions of any natural impossibility for the two races to live side by side, in a state of mutual benefit and good will.
Seite 4 - Conventions called, Governors elected, Legislatures assembled, and Senators and Representatives chosen to the Congress of the United States. At the same time, the courts of the United States, as far as could be done, have been re-opened, so that the laws of the United States may be enforced through their agency. The blockade has been removed and the Custom-houses re-established in ports of entry, so that the revenue of the United States may be collected. The Post-office Department renews its ceaseless...
Seite 4 - Besides, the policy of military rule over a conquered territory would have implied that the States whose inhabitants may have taken part in the Rebellion had, by the act of those inhabitants, ceased to exist. But the true theory is, that all pretended acts of secession were, from the beginning, null and void.
Seite 31 - The immediate tendency of suffering such armaments, in defiance of our laws, would have been to embroil the United States with all the nations whose commerce with our country was suffering under these depredations, and if not checked by all the means in the power of the Government would have authorized claims from the subjects of foreign Governments for indemnities at the expense of this nation, for captures by our people in vessels fitted out in our ports, and, as could not fail of being alleged,...
Seite 6 - Moreover, a concession of the elective franchise to the freedmen, by Act of the President of The United States, must have been extended to all coloured men, wherever found, and so must have established a change of suffrage in the northern, middle, and western States, not less than in the southern and south-western. Such an Act would have created a new class of voters, and would have been an assumption of power by the President which nothing in the Constitution or laws of The United States would have...
