What then it our object? It is to restore the
Consliiution, which has been violated and con

training the erratic and arbitrary career of n e
majority and by procuring, if possible, the taint
abandonment of the restrictive and Interna Im-
provemenf systems which we regard; not only as
gross infractions of that instrumei t, but as utter
ly kubvefsive of I he. rights and lilnyties of the
.Southern States. It is to burnish and pernetuae
the claim of the union, by removing the abuke.
which disfigure and corrode it. It is, in Short.
by a proper recurrence to first principles to des;
troy the system of inequali y and robbery which
arvw carried ou, tor the aeg- ujiditement or ine
