THAT.thet bave bestowed; on-the-said
proposition, the respectful attention .which
is due both , in Us tniporkance, tand to the
state roaming it, without t.b.eing. able'to per
form any just grounds pn hich its adoption
can be recomme'nded. The provisior.mftde
by the constitution for such'-amendments?
from time to time, as tnay b iound Jexpe--dient,
is considered by the committee, as
wisely adapted to a new and ! complicated
system, which in its progress might develope
imperfections'unforseen at its date, or which
may have been then suscepiibla of more
conrenient organization, or,; more guarded
definition in some of its'parts, than was re
marked cither by those who framed or those
who ratified the instrument ; in pursuance
of this provison, and in the spirit which dic
tated it, " the constitution Jias received al-
terations, which it is hopfcd will be found
to render it -the more capable of ' fulfilling
the great end to which it aspires and the
committee are , far from presuming that
like improvements may tipt still be made
under the lessons of experience, without in
novation or violating those essential princi
ples, and these well known conditions en
which the constitution re founded. But with
all the dispositions they feel to avoid imped
ing ameliorations in the political institutions
of the United States, and to listen with fa
vourable attention to the changes invited in
that light by a sister state, they cannot regard
the" one now proposed by ihe legislature of
Massachusetts, as either within the scope
that ought to be given to iimoyation, orjtis
'justified by any . considerations, which a're
entitled to greater weight now, than was
Originally allowed them ; were the compound
ratio of representation now a proper subject
of examination, it is far from being admitted
that the' sacrifice "thereby made to the spirit
of union, was not althe expence of the states,
containing a mixed population ;' but such a
discussion might awaken local distinctions
and sensations, for which the Constitution
endeavoured to provide a remedy ; the com
mittee deem it sufficient therefore to observe
First, that the article in a constitution like
that of the United States, which fixes the
representation, and has allowed to each of
he parlies thereto, whether. in the one or
the other branch of the legislature, may
justly be deemed amongst the articles most
fundamental, and consequently ought not
IU Lit Iigiru vi noTutj iiitoiicvi uvtuuuij,
that the proptiety of this ratio is evinced from
the consideration that so early as the year
seventeen hundred and fifty-three, the. first
time a union of the th;n colonies was con
templated, in a convention at Albany, the
' delegate of to colony south of the Potomac
being pr-escnt, did, in their plan of confede
ration (which embraced all the colonies)
'propose that taxation and -representation
should be reciprocal ; additionally,, it is to
be remarked, that the same principle was
aga'm brought under public and favourable
consideration, in the year seventeen hundred
and eighty:thrce,' by a proportion of the
'then congress to substitute for the ratio
established in the first charter of canfedaa-
of those iCberal.yie), ftqsi Tinoh, inters
ests and those- national feelings, which ori
ginally harmonised -these states' into con
federacy, and finally piaced them under &
governtrient instituted, tp perpetuate thejir
union, to .secure and advance th happinegs
they; enjoy under it. .
Jleiohed therefore. That it is inexpedient
for this state'to agrertrthe amendment to
the constitution of the. United States, propo
sed by the legislature f Massachusetts.
Resolved. That the Gofernor t)f this Cpm-
raonweaUh be request exl to transmit a copy
of the foregoing resolution to the chief
