The questions involved In the Resolutions are
chieflu fliiMiiiux nf Cnnstitutional Law. Before
I proceed to their di-cusaion, permit me to notice
one or two remarks of ihe gentleman Irom rxjge
eombe (Mr. Potte) by whom they were introduced.
That gentleman, towards the close of hi Address,
oflirled the banner of party, and calledon all
those who had voted with him in the late Senate
rial election, to aland by bim in support of the Re
Nuiiona. Appeals auch asnhis, upon questions
like these, are not only unfair in argument, but
kighly unfavorable to correct conclusions. Ha
