not believe. The people were
opposed to call of the convention three
years aj;S, ami hesitated lonjr, but finally
' piveiway to certain per-istcil iiilluen

John V. ihinham:
v I rrgrct that I cannot con
cur with those of our friends who thiuk
that the legislature, soon to assemble,
ought to call a convention to revise and
am nd that instrument.
1 , The lat expression of th
public will upon the Mibjcct was in
1 S7 1 , when the quotion w;i siibmiltevl
to a direct vote of the pcde, and w heu
it was otml down by a Iarge"maiority,
although we had had art the preceding
rlccliou iii 1S70 victory almost equal
to that of the ptTicnt year. I know
that it jU said, and truly .-aid, that many
men voted against the convention in
1571 lcau they did notapprvTc the
mode i which the question w.ts .ub
mitKsl. but it will be remembered that
at the mmc ehx'tmn at which the con
vention wa ntcd dowu there w nn
election for dcleglle to the convent ton.

I ant correctly informed, we failed to
elect majority Jof .democrats and ci.
