But each side treasured its vitalized and enriched arguments for use in a more strenuous day. Advantage in the great discussion lay partly with Hayne and partly with his brilliant antagonist. On the whole, the facts of history were on the side 156 THE REIGN OF ANDREW JACKSON of Hayne. Webster attempted to argue from the intent of the framers of the Constitution and from early opinion concerning the nature of the Union; but a careful appraisal of the evidence hardly bears out his contentions. On... economic matters also, notably the operation of the protec tive tariff, he trod uncertain ground. He realized this fact and as far as possible kept clear of eco nomic discussion. The South had real grievances, and Webster was well enough aware that they could not be argued out of existence.
