Everything about him betokens orig
inalily, ru.de strength and positive

typical Anglo-Saxon one. His fea
tures are not Unelv cut. nor is their
expression intellectual; but, though
coarse, tney are oarmomous, anu
there is a look of good humor, com
mon sense and careless, self-confident
manhood in tne whole countenance.

to do substantial justice aiwaya

our judicial system was shaker to its
foundations and the supremacy of the

was ever the champion of the civil

heat ot the rebellion, to interfere to
prevent tbe suppreseion of the Chi

prompt action that the case 01 aio

in 1794, when Vermont and Kentucky

Congress added two stripes and two
