Էջ 98 - ... the hatred of the good people of the United States, or to stir up sedition within the United States; or to excite any unlawful combinations therein, for opposing or resisting any law of the United States, or any act of the President of the United States, done in pursuance of any such law, or of the powers in him vested by the Constitution of the United States...
Էջ 71 - By the Constitution of the United States the President is invested with certain important political powers, in the exercise of which he is to use his own discretion, and is accountable only to his country in his political character, and to his own conscience. To aid him in the performance of these duties, he is authorized to appoint certain officers who act by his authority and in conformity with his orders.

Էջ 19 - The opinion of the judges has no more authority over congress than the opinion of congress has over the judges, and on that point the president is independent of both.
Էջ 249 - Yes, I have ambition ; but it is the ambition of being the humble instrument, in the hands of Providence, to reconcile a divided people — once more to revive concord and harmony in a distracted land — the pleasing ambition of contemplating the glorious spectacle of a free, united, prosperous, and fraternal people...
Էջ 292 - Government, without limitation or restriction, saving the very inconsiderable reservation relating to their inspection laws. This authority having thus entirely passed from the states, the right to exercise it for the purpose of protection does not exist in them ; and consequently if it be not possessed by the General Government, it must be extinct. Our political system would thus present the anomaly of a people, stripped of the right to foster their own industry, and to counteract the most selfish...
