PREFACE.

A CONSTANT recurrence to the fundamental principles of government cannot be too much recommended to the citizens of a republic.

It is in this manner only that a thorough and consistent knowledge of the duties which every man, as a good citizen, owes to the laws of his country, can be fostered.

Believing this, we deem no apology necessary in presenting this volume to the public.

We have embraced in this book that immortal document, the Declaration of Independence; and also the Constitution of the United States, which has formed the safeguard of our rights and the bulwark of our liberties, through many years of unparalleled peace and prosperity.

Nothing can be more beneficial to every freeman than the perusal and study of these instruments; the general dearth of which, in family libraries, is sensibly felt by those who desire the information contained in such a manual as this.

To these we have added those enactments which for the last few years have been the subject of so much discussion and general interest; such as the

W

Fugitive Slave Bill of 1793, and the amendment to it of 1850, the Missouri Compromise of 1820, and the Bill to organize Kansas and Nebraska of 1854.

It is somewhat surprising to note, that among persons who are constantly making these laws the topic of conversation and debate, so few who have ever perused the statutes themselves, but have depended upon the scandal and misrepresentations of newspapers for information in regard to their character.

Perhaps this arises from the want of general circulation given by the government to the bills which pass Congress; but, nevertheless, that this ignorance exists, is too well known.

To supply this want this volume has been carefully compiled; and the publishers have endeayored to present it in a form which will be acceptable for popular use.
