ty instead of a two-thirds vote. From Virginia came the chief opposition to the continuance of the slave-trade. That trade was continued for twenty years; not by the vote of the solid South, but of a solid New England. Twenty years, exclaimed Madison, will produce all the mischief that can be apprehended from the liberty to import slaves; and George Mason rebuked the melancholy choice of Mammon, for that some of our eastern brethren had from a lust of gain engaged in this nefarious traffic. struction. The use of force against a State would look more like a declaration of war than an infliction of punishment, and would probably be considered by the party attacked as a dissolution of all previous compacts by which it might be bound.—Madison. A Union, by naming itself Federal, expresses its ligament to be, not coercion, but convention.

The whole record of their long, laborious lives has been exposed, upturned, published, and not one syllable of shame. It is the slander of envious or ambitious rivals which the record has exposed—to their shame. It is the hideous revilings, the ceasele
