עמוד 295 - ... the president to employ the land and naval forces of the United States, if necessary, to carry the revenue laws into effect. After the bill was reported to the senate, Mr. Calhoun offered a series of resolutions, embodying his views and those who sustained the doctrines of nullification, with regard to the powers of the general government and the rights of the states.

עמוד 162 - ... which have borne them down for centuries in their country, they do work. They have built our great public works ; they have constructed our vast system of railways ; they have done more than that ; they have risen to places of power and eminence in every walk of industry and in every avenue which is open to brains and to pluck.
