Էջ 261 - Nor is our government to be maintained, or our Union preserved, by invasions of the rights and powers of the several states. In thus attempting to make our general government strong, we make it weak. Its true strength consists in leaving individuals and states as much as possible to themselves; in making itself felt, not in its power, but in its beneficence, not .in its control, but in its protection, not in binding the states more closely to the centre, but leaving each to move unobstructed, in...
