ST. JOHN'S COLLEGIAN. 210
Our federal government has been,
sorry to say, resisted by states claim-
ing state sovereignty. But is not the
federal government able to cope with
such events? Yet, it is a tried. and
proved fact. What was our late civil
war but a clamor for state sover-
eignty ? What was the cause of their
rebellion but some measure in the
constitution, repugnant to their
sense of state rights? c Again, what
was the remedy but the final return
of the states into the Union and their
approval and adoption of the consti-
tution in its integrity ? Yes, we may
Ermly, unconscientiou sly and undeni-
ably say that our federal government,
with its written constitution, is all
powerful, never to belaid aside with
impunity so long, ass this great re-
public exists. , I
Our republic stands as an object
of admiration to other nations of the
globe. England, our former oppres-
sor and persecutor, in the seclusion
and isolation of her island home,
looks with pride on her daughter of
the west, France, our ally in time
of distress, has experienced the whole-
some intluences of a republican form
of government, and has followed the
precedent set by our favored com-
mon weal th. The empires and monar-
chies of the east, whose forms of
government transmitted from genera-
tion to generation and strengthened
by the nonsensical superstition of
ages, may well indeed bow their heads
in humble adoration to the glourious
republic of the west.
Greece the land of poets and phil-
osophers, by the daring and bravery
of her loyal sons, rose to an eminent
position in the history of nations.
But Greece rose to fall. She, intoxi-
cated by her own success and glorying
in her own power, essayed impossible
undertakings, until Home seizepl
upon her vitals and ROlllG7S
sive rule destroyed every vestige of
her former greatness.
Home the 'tqueen of cities" and
arbiter of her age, proud in her maj es-
tic beauty and insolent in her trans-
cendent power, ,rose to fall. Her le-
gions planted her standards in the
most distant climes and snatched
victory after victory from the very
jaws of her enemies, until the eastern
hordes swept down on her like an
avalanche and corruption sapped
away the essence of life. Shall it be
so with our grand stable and untaint-
ed republic? May heaven forbid!
Grave problems confront us at the
present time, problems w.hose solution
remains the duty of the present gen-
eration-problems of finance, of taxes
of conflicts between capital' and labor
A--such are the questions demanding
immediate solution, an almost super-
human taslr for one generation to ef-
fectuate, Yet, they must, be solved.
Upon their right and just solution
dependsthe destiny of our boasted
nation. How shallthey be solved?
How, indeed, was our republican
form of government established and
and made to be a bulwark against
the attacks and ravages of Time?
How have we attained Hnally to such
a plane of development and progress?
