Mr. Webster delivered two speeches in the course of the debate, one on January 25th, andady considers the two together and summarizes them as follows: First—He (Webster) asserts that the power of Congress is unlimited in granting public lands for d approve it. In the same chapter Mr. Grady calls attention to the answer to Mr. Webster by Mr. Calhoun, and to the complete overthrow of his (Webster's) political dWebster's) political doctrines, by quoting his own former utterances (always scrupulously ignored and excluded by northern compilers of school readers, speakers, union text-books, etc.), delivered long after this debate at Capon Springs, Va. There, in June, 1851, Mr. Webster said: I have not hesitated to say, and I repeat, that, if the northern StateA bargain cannot be broken on one side, and still bind the other side.

n 1860, upon a platform pledged to override the constitution, as interpreted by the Supreme Court of the United States, was an unmistakable expression on the part of the people of the North of a determination to disregard the solemn mandates of that instrument which formed the bond of union between the sections. This determination once formed and expressed, the South had the legal right to withdraw from the compact, quietly and peaceably, as she did. This right was clearly recognized by Mr. Webster, who was a statesman of much larger caliber than Harriet Beecher Stowe.

At the appointed hour the prisoner, escorted by a strong guard, entered the grounds, where, after a short delay, he mounted the scaffold and paid the p
