Dr. Ramsay further states :—“Tho* new weight was daily thrown into tho scah', in which the advantages of indc- petidetice were weighed, yel it did not pre|)ondorate till about that time in 1776, when itiielligente reached the colonists of the act of parliament passed in Decem ber, 177.5, I'or throwing them out of Brit ish protection, anti of hiring foreign troops to assist in eflTecting their con quest.” This act was well calculated tc» turn the fcale, and il did so. But near I'.cvm months belore it tas passed, thcs Mpckknhvrfi; Ikclaration was made. And this declaration was made too, before tho famous pamphlet, under the signaturo of“ C'omn>on Sense,” to which so muck iiillucnce has been attributed, was either written or jiublishcd. I'he unassuming and rcspectfuI con duct of the p«’oplc of Mecklenburg, proves that they wish to claim no exclu sive honor for what they did or sufi’ered toadvanccthc lihertiee ofour country- They f.ought, and in common with their feliow-cityzen^, have long since found a sufikient reward for their enterprise, ii\ the tonscioubtiess of doing iheir duty.— But so long as American Indepcndenco has a charm for the ears of freemeu, let it be rcmeiTibcred that in th«; streets of Churloi'.eit was firstitroclaimcd. Not long after this transaction, Mr.' Hunter joined with the inhabitauls of this and adjoining counties in teslifyinj;7 tliat they were willinj;, not oidy lo de clare independence, but to maintain if. by arms.
