The vast flowing tide of emigration con

lightning-like rapidity with which new

The fast-growing and increasing tendency
to expansion and that Westward are it
most decisive and convincing proof of the
necessity. It would be superfluous to
add that the people of America are more
progressive than any other people or
Earth. Vet it would not be rgottscal in
