HOAR, Samuel. REMARKS BY SAMUEL HOAR, OF MASSACHUSETTS, on the Resolutions introduced by Mr Jarvis, of Maine, and Mr Wise, of Virginia, delivered in the House of Representatives, Thursday, January 21, 1836. £ 45.00

Washington. National Intelligence Office. 1836. pp. 13. 8vo. Disbound. Some slight foxing. Mr Jarvis resolved that 'in the opinion of this House, the subject of the abolition of slavery in the District of Columbia, ought not to be entertained by Congress. And be it further resolved, That, in any case any petition praying the abolition of slavery in the District of Columbia be hereafter presented, it is the deliberate opinion of the House that the same ought to be laid on the table, without being referred or printed.' Mr Wise's amendment was 'That there is no pwer of legislation granted by the constitution to the Congress of the United States to abolish slavery in the District of Columbia; and that any attempt by Congress to legislate upon the subject of slavery will be not only unauthorized, but dangerous to the union of the States.' Hoar upheld the power of Congress to abolish slavery in the District of Columbia.
