Էջ 61 - The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them ; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose. It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing : the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon : they shall see the glory of the Lord, and the excellency of our God.

Էջ 224 - ... until its accomplishment. It is an encouraging observation that no good measure was ever proposed which, if duly pursued, failed to prevail in the end.
Էջ 85 - States, though all may be interested in relieving our country from the colored population, they are not equally so ; it is but fair to recollect, that the sections most to be benefited, are those whose cessions created the fund to be disposed of. I am aware of the constitutional obstacle which has presented itself; but if the general will be reconciled to an application of the territorial fund to the removal of the colored population, a grant to Congress of the necessary authority could be carried,...
Էջ 85 - Africa would, at the same time, interrupt the slave trade — a horrid traffic detested by all good men, and would protect the vessels and commerce of the Colony from pirates, who infest those seas. The power of the government to afford this aid is not, I believe, contested.
Էջ 162 - No doctrine is better established than that it belongs exclusively to governments to recognize new states in the revolutions which may occur in the world; and until such recognition, either by our own government, or the government to which the new state belonged, courts of justice are bound to consider the ancient state of things as remaining unaltered.
