Excerpt from Speech of the Hon. Daniel Sheffey: On the Bill "to Authorise the President of the United States to Call Upon the Several States and Territories Thereof for Their Respective Quotas of Eighty Thousand Men for the Defence of the Frontiers of the United States Against Invasion" The-present period has given birth to doctrines more al arming than all the other dangers which surround us. On the part of those in power, claims have been set up, tending to subject the life and liberty of every member of the community to their arbitrary and unlimited control. Shpuld they succeed in enforcing these claims by practical measures, the great prin ciples Of this government must necessarily be subverted. Its character will no longer be free; or its powers limited. By one effort they will alike prostrate the authority of the States and the liberties of the people.
