Another assertion of this mau that it was

reference to the charter will shew that the slate
could not be interested unless the KubKcrijitions
should fall short of a given amount. It Hwell
known that they exceeded ihat amount. How
ever there was no desigu to exclude the state,
because a vole was immediately passed by the
