Herein, the Republican Stow attempted to cool the flames fanned by the rhetoric exhibited in the debate of this bill, as evinced by the speeches of Josiah Quincy (1813.057), Henry Clay (1813.058), and James Emott (1813.059); he argued that the divisions seen in the Congress were not the result of foreign influences, but that they were detrimental to the survival of the country, generating a climate where it would allow "anarchy and tyranny [to] ensue." Despite the heated Federalist protests, the bill passed on January 29th (Chap. XVI of Acts of Twelfth Congress, Second session).
