8940. WARDS, Advantages of.—

partiality for the division of counties into
wards is not founded in views of education
solely, but infinitely more as the means of a
better administration of our government, and
the eternal preservation of its republican principles.
The example of this most admirable
of all human contrivances in government, is
to be seen in our Eastern States; and its
powerful effect in the order and economy of
their internal affairs, and the momentum it
gives them as a nation, is the single circumstance
which distinguishes them so remarkably
from every other national association.—
To Governor Nicholas. Washington ed. vi, 566.
(M. 1816)
