Strona 166 - By a faction, I understand a number of citizens, whether amounting to a majority or minority of the whole, who are united and actuated by some common impulse of passion, or of interest, adverse to the rights of other citizens, or to the permanent and aggregate interests of the community.

To discern and to profit by these tides in national affairs is the business of those who preside over them ; and they who have had much experience on this head inform us that there frequently are occasions when days, nay, even when hours, are precious.
