A husband and wife may be divorced and go out of the presence and beyond the reach of each other; but the different parts of our country cannot do this.
Side 284 - One section of our country believes slavery is right, and ought to be extended, while the other believes it is wrong, and ought not to be extended. This is the only substantial dispute.
Side 281 - The Union is much older than the Constitution/ It was formed, in fact, by the Articles of Association in 1774. It was matured and continued by the Declaration of Independence in 1776.
