DEBATE OX THE
c ojvrEjXTWjX q ues tiojs:
HOUSE OF COMMONS, DEC. 1821.
Mr. Strange observed, that he hoped
the committee would not be alarmed :
he would occupy their attention but a
few minutes. He had intended to
have taken no part in the debate, as he
believed that every member came to
that house with a determination to
vote as' his individual interest led him ;
he Arould therefore as socn expect to
move the State from its foundations by
tiie explosion of a pop-gun, as by ar
gument to change the vote of a single
individual on the committee ; for in
terest presents a shield , s impregna
ble to argument, as that of the mighty
Greek to the weapons of his enemies.
.Mr. S. thought the true question be
fore the committee had not been fairlv
stated and met. Innuiries have beet,
made whether any grievances have
been experienced under the present
system. It appeared to him, that it
would be the principal objects, and
perhaps the only ones, of the propos
ed Convention, to inquire into the
grievances occasioned by the defects
in our present Constitution, and to re
commend measures suitable for their
remedy. The inquiry is, therefore, at
this period, premature.
Gentlemen have said much of the
evils that must necessarily flow from
tailing h Convention, which he consid
ered as without foundation. They
speak of it as though, by the call of a
Convention, we should be turned loose
into the wild and trackless desert of
political experiment ; that we should
I)c savage and lawless, as mull is found
t 1 n' Kr? t lnlo -4- f -
the Constitution of the
United States as the polar star which,
however we might be tossed about up
on the wild :nd tempestuous ocean of
political experiment, will eventually
serve to guide us safely into a haven
at leant as commodious as that in
which ve are now moored. The cas-
Ikctof eloquence has been torn open
and its various jewels scattered abroad,
to dazzle and allure us from the true
question, by exciting our alarm, and
enlistint; our ft-elinnrs. He would ven
ture to assert, that whenever a Con
vention is called, nothing like the rage
and turbulence oi p.ission will be seen
in it ; not a blast will pass over it to
rufile the deliberative calmness of the
scene ; it will be composed of materials
above the influence of sectional inter
est and individual feeling.
The question before the committee
has improperly been made one of con
flicting interest between the Eastern
v.nd Western counties of the State ;
whereas it should be, and really is, one
of alledged injustice between the lar
ger and smaller counties. There are
small counties in the West, as well as
in the East, who have as much politi
cal power as the larger counties. This
is unjust ; and it is the duty cf every
honest man, everv lover of justice, to
do all in his power to remedy the evil,
if he believes in its existence, no mat
ter how it may operate on himsell in
dividually ; it is of no consequence to
him whether he inhabit a large county
or a small one.
Gentlemen sav that large counties
h:.ve no cause of complaint on this
ground, because they have small coun
ties near them. As well might you
s:y to the poor man, under an Aristo
cratic form of government, who com
plains that he is not represented, 14 Sir,
vou have no right to complain, you
h ive rich neighbors near you, who are
represented, and who will, consequent
lv, take care of your interests."
Would such an answer be viewed by
him as consolation suited to his case?
Would he not view it as the taunt of
scorn ? As the mockery of his griev
ance ? And so should this argument be
inhabitants of large
To him, this question appeared sim
ple and unanswerable. Gentlemen op
posed to a Convention have no right
to open their mouths upon the subject ;
they have no right to say we shall have
no Convention. In their open opposi-
tion to this measure, they sav to the
supporters of the present proposition ;
" Although your fathers" have fought
and bled to secure vour liberty and in
dependence ; although for this your
soil has drtink their blood, and their
bones have whitened on its bosom, you
shall not enjoy the blessings secured
to you by their valor. Although wc
acknowledge yon are not equally rep
resented, we will stand self-created
guardians thereof, between you and
the Constitution ; although it is the
charter of your own liberties, purchas
ed by the blood of your own ancestors
although we acknowledge it to be your
own exclusive property, vet wc will
take it upon ourselves to form a phal
anx around it, and bid you defiance 5
you shall not, unhallowed as vou are,
obtrude yourselves into its presence,
or touch it with your unpolluted
hands." From whence do these gen
tlemen derive such high powers t They
have them not ; they have no right to
say to the free people of this State,
vou shall not have a Convention. If,
when the vote comes to be taken on
this subject, they think it expedient o
hold a Convention, they can put in a
ticket to that effect. But it is our
right (said Mr. S.) to have a Conven
tion. It is painful to look around upon
this respectable assemblage- the Le
gislative Council of the freest people
on the globe, and reflect that all who
have spoken, and all who will vote on
this important question, have spoken,
and will vote under the sole influence
of what they believe to be their sec
tional and individual interest, without
adverting a moment, to the abstract
question of right. If the question
were put to every man in this commit
tee, separately, individually tnd alone,
41 are those Resolutions reasonable ?"
he would answer affirmatively ; but
men, gentlemen, appear en this floor in
their representative capacity, borne
away on the tide of sectional and indi
vidual interest ; they can say there shall
be no Convention, and right and jus
tice are lost in the flood.
THF. LAST OF TIIE STUAI1TS.
In Lady Morgan's work on Iiahit vol. 2, is th
following1 notice of a Monument in the Church
of St. Fetcr, at Rome, erected by order of the
present King- of England, to the memory of
James the Third, who was the last of the rival
family of the Stuabts. Charleston Coxirier.
" There is another monument in St.
Peter's that often arrests the steps of the
British traveller, and awakens many ari
association, whatever be his politics for
the vhi and the tory may alike And food
for meditation upon the monument of the
last of the Stuarts! This beautiful mau
soleum, the work, of Canova, is raised to
the memory of James the ThircL Kin of
England, his Queen, and his two sons ;
and the decease of the last representa
tive of a worthless but unfortunate race,
who will long share the pity and contempt
of posterity who ceased to be Kings, be
cause they could not be despots ! is re
corded with all the pompous titles that
royalty possesses in the day of its great
est glory. V his monument, and these ti
tles, ate bestowed by the munificence of
the Prince Kegent of England, at whose
expense the mausoleum of the Stuarts
has been raised ; and it is to the honor of
the heart and taste of the royal donor,
that the titles, which the birth of the de
ceased compelled him to arrogate in life,
are thus liberally conceded to him on the
tomb. The existence of such a monu
ment, so inscribed, diminishes nothing
from the dignity of that throne, which,
founded on the suffrages of a free people,
may well afford to be generous to fallen
tyranny. It is surely to be lamented, that
any consideration of policy (which pos
teritv will regard as false, if not as base)
should have given rise to an opposite line
of conduct with respect to another fallen
monarch 1 and that ;t should have left to
history the task cf contrasting the royal
piety of a British Prince to James Stuart,
with the timid vengeance of ministerial
severity towards Napoleon Bonaparte.'
From tlie National Intelligencer.
There is one subject incidentally con
nected with finances and the public ex
penditure, on which there is an attempt
to produce an excitement in the public
mind, in regard to which we will stop, to
say a few words. It is that of the amount
of defalcations of public agents. On thin
subject, there appears to exist also some
honest misapprehensions, which closer
enstmmaticn would certainly correct
