The victory represents a crucial moment in Mr. And, sir, what does this bank or its branches, where resort is had to it? I also was using Obama as an example. In one sense Quincy did good service to his country; his statesmanship, if not refined, was effective; his argument, if some what brutal, was strong; and within four-and-twenty hours the House met it in the only way that could preserve the dignity of Congress and the Administration, by passing the bill for an extra session with eighty votes against twenty-six.

    In the collection of the excise, the direct and other internal taxes, no aid was derived from any bank. Have not the people of Virginia, when laboring under the severest pressure of accumulated distresses, manifested the most cordial acquiescence in the execution of the laws? The accessory is exalted above the principal. Clay's speech which will demand from him, and from all the friends of a National Bank, the most serious and well-considered answer. Here no rule exists but the Constitution, and to legislate upon the ground merely that our predecessors thought themselves authorized, under similar circumstances, to legislate, is to sanctify error and perpetuate usurpation. Proceeding with his argument against the use or necessity of a National Bank, Mr.

He's with my opponent. Consider our situation, Sir: Go to the poor man, ask him what he does; he will inform you, that he enjoys the fruits of his labour, under his own fig-tree, with his wife and children around him, in peace and security.

Whilst, on the contrary, if it should not so act, but should avail itself of the temporary prolongation, in order to effect a more durable extension of its charter, it might in its operations become a serious scourge. Allen's hopes for a relatively easy reelection bid were complicated in August when he was caught on film referring to a dark-skinned campaign worker for Mr.

But if it were possible to surmount this fundamental objection, and if that rule which forbids, during the same session of the senate, the re-agitation of a proposition once decided, were disregarded, your committee would still be at a loss to find any sufficient reasons for prolonging the political existence of the corporation, for the purpose of winding up its affairs.

I see none from our present one: I hope some Gentleman or other will bring forth, in full array, those dangers, if there be any, that we may see and touch them.

We're going to places all over Virginia, and he's having it on film and it's great to have you here and you show it to your opponent because he's never been there and probably will never come. Such is the contradiction in which his apostacy involves him.

If the committee had time to go into the investigation, and to present to the House the various reasons which have conduced to this opinion, it would be more than useless to divert its attention from the important concerns of the nation, at this late period of the session, to a subject which but a few days since, was so fully and elaborately discussed.
