Excerpt from The North American Review, Vol. 123A century of almost uninterrupted prosperity, at least in the Northern States, has tempted our people to believe that we arc exempted from the vicissitudes which have fallen upon other nations. That during this century there has been realized in the United States an average condition of human wellbeing, both moral and physical, equal if not superior to anything heretofore known in the world, is a proposition which will, we suppose, be hardly called in question. It would be an endless, and perhaps profitless subject of discussion, whether this is owing to the institutions under which we have the happiness to live, or to the circumstance of our lot being cast in the midst of abundant natural resources, made available by a population of high intelligence, at once possessed of all the appliances of modern civilization, and freed from the social trammels which oppress a large majority of the inhabitants of older and more crowded communities. But even if we assume the truth of the former alternative, it is evident that with the increasing complexity of our national life, these institutions must be subject to constantly greater strain. Attention has of late been much directed to the debates of the Convention which framed our national Constitution, and the inquiry has strikingly developed the doubt, uncertainty, and distrust with which the builders launched the fabric which they had constructed.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
