Stran 241 - ... the party, bring themselves to give up the charming hope ; but with greedier anxiety they rush about him, sustain him, and give him marches, triumphal entries, and receptions beyond what even in the days of his highest prosperity they could have brought about in his favor.

Stran 218 - ... authorized by the Constitution and justified by an obligation of the government to protect the lives and property of its citizens.
Stran 266 - Caroline, Caroline, child of the sun, There are battles with Fate that can never be won ! The star-flowering banner must never be furled, For its blossoms of light are the hope of the world !

Stran 59 - It is, sir, the people's Constitution, the people's government ; made for the people; made by the people; and answerable to the people.
Stran 283 - tis drooping dreary: Furl it, fold it, — it is best; For there 's not a man to wave it, And there 's not a sword to save it, And there's not one left to lave it In the blood which heroes gave it, And its foes now scorn and brave it: Furl it, hide it, — let it rest...
Stran 62 - Fellow-citizens of my native State, let me not only admonish you as the First Magistrate of our common country, not to incur the penalty of its laws, but use the influence that a father would over his children whom he saw rushing to certain ruin. In that paternal language, with that paternal feeling, let me tell you, my countrymen, that you are deluded by men who are either deceived themselves or wish to deceive you.
