.Mr. Smith's Speech conchi-lei.
But gentlemen say our Constitution
has had an an existence of 45 years,
therefore ought not to be touched.
If an argument of this kind ought to
have any weight, it might have been
used with much greater force against
amending the Constitution or Charter
of Connecticut, which had existed since
the days, of King Charles. But such
arguments had no weight there, and
they are entitled to none here. Time
cannot sanctify error. If your Consti
tution have nothing to recommend it
but the rust of antiquity, that ought
not to protect it. If you are not able
to shew that it is perfect in all its parts,
or superior to any Constitution which
the present age can form, the people
ought to have an opportunity of amend
ing it when they express a wish to do so.
IIr. Jefferson had been referred to
as authority for the system of Repre
sentation adopted in Virginia. You
are told that a portion of the people in
that State are disfranchised; that no
man who is not possessed of a freehold
can vote for a Delegate to their House
of .Representatives. IMr. S. said he
objected to this system. lie cared not
who was in favour of it. He respec
ted Mr. Jefferson as much as any man ;
but he souldnot call such a system ci
government a Democratic Republic ;
but, in the language of Vattel an Aris
tocratic Republic. Mr. S. read a pas-
Ii om
Yuttel in support oi his
opinion, j
What, aked Mr. S. constitutes the
strength oi" tlie State r There are two
kinds of strength ; the one moral, the
other ph sical. The moral, is the good
opinion which the people entertain of
thc goodness of its form ; thc physical,
is the force and ability which it posses
ses to meet an enemy. Suppose your
Republic is invaded, all your citizens
would be called upon to defend it,
whether they have land or not, and if a
man be obliged to fight for his country,
he surely ought to enjoy the rights of a
The next gentleman that addressed
the committee on this subject was from
lieaufort, (Mr. Blackledge.) That
gentleman acknowledged that the Wes
tern people were not correctly repre
sented. This w as a generous acknowl
edgment, and nothing more than he ex
pected from the candour of that gen
tleman. But he nevertheless demand
ed of us a catalouge of our grievances.
He admits wchave not justice done us,
but demands of us to show where we
have it not. The gentleman goes on
to remark, that though the East does
not equal the West in population, the
towns of Xewbern, Wilmington, &c.
pay all thc taxes paid by this State to
the General Government. It is true
that tho3e places are the ports of entry,
and that the Revenue Officers reside
there, and that our merchants first pay
the duties on shipping and on goods
imported. But if the gentleman had
read a little mere on the subject of Po
litical Economy, he would have found,
that though the merchant pays these
duties in the first instance, they are ul
timately paid by the consumers of the
goods imported, who live in the inte
rior of the country.
The gentleman from Wilmington,
(Mr. Jones) next addressed the com
mittee, very eloquently and very feel
ingly, lie regretted that so much feel
ing and zeal had been shewn by the ad
vocates of these resolutions. Mr. S.
said it was natural that gentlemen
should express themselves feelingly
when they had to claim the rights of
freemen, of which they were unjustly
deprived. But the alarm which was
taken in relation to our forcibly ob
taining our rights, had no foundation.
We will bear the evil of which we
complain, until our Eastern friends can
be prevailed upon to do us justice ; but
we shall never cease to claim our rights.
Gentlemen speak of threats w hich
have appeared in some newspapers.
This was no doubt the production of
some intemperate person ; but a publi
cation of this kind ought not to be
charged upon the friends of these res-cdntrcr.-?.
So far as knew the Wes
tern people, he could pledge himself
they meant to use no other
but those of fair argument.
A Convention is objected to, because
it is committing ill the political pow
ers of the community into the hands of
the people ; and it is feared that when
the delegates to a Convention are met,
they might break down some of the old
barriers of the Government. It is ap
prehended that certain powers would
be taken from the Judiciary and pla
ced in the .Legislature. He did not
fear any thing of the kind. Though
some two or three gentlemen might
have given such an opinion, he believ
ed the people of the West are as much
attached to the Judiciary, as any other
citizens in the State. No danger, he
believed, need be apprehended from
that quarter.
Are you afraid, asked Mr. S. to trust
the people with the power that belongs
to them ? The doctrine, that the peo
ple are unable to govern themselves,
cannot be tolerated in this free country.
It might su'uthe subjects of George IV.
or of the Emperor of all the Ru-'bias,
but he hoped it would find but fevy ad
vocates with us. He should always be
the supporter of self-government. It
is contained in the first clause of our
Declaration of Rights ; and the people
have never passed the sovereignty out
of their hands, and he trusted never
The next gentleman xvho addressed
the committee was from Granville,
(Mr. Hillman) and he adopted the
s a m e s t r a in o f a r g u m e n t v i t h h i s f r i e n d s
on that side of the question. He asks
if the Governor be not now, in effect,
elected by the people, through their
representatives. Mr. S- observed, that
he had already stated that the present
majority oi the Legislature elect the
officers of Government and make laws
without cur consent, which is a suffi
cient answer to the gentleman's remark.
But, asks the gentleman, if you form
a Constitution, may not that also have
its defects ? Mr. S. presumed it would.
It would be the work of man, and as
man is imperfect, his works will neces
sarily be so. But what, said he, does
this prove ? Not that our present Con
stitution cannot be amended i Cannot
be made more conformable to republi
can principles ? It certainly proves no
such thing.
The gentleman asks if the Constitu
tion of the U. States be not republi
can ? It certainly is, said Mr. Sand
he would be content to make ours as
like it as possible ; for he considered it
a good republican Constitution. But
the gentleman inquires if political jus
tice can be weighed m a balance?
Though this cannot be done, we might
come nearer to it than to allow one
man to have six times as much as an
other. We can approach equal justice
something nearer than our present
Constitution does.
But the question is asked, why a man
with half a million of dollars has not
more political power than a man with
out a dollar ? A rich man has no more
power in the election of a member of
this House than the poorest man of the
community; but our Constitution pro
vides for the security of the rich in the
Senate, whose members are elected by
landholders, and without whose con
sent no law can pass to injure the man
of wealth. The riches of a wealthy
man give him also an indirect influ
ence in elections, as he can generally
draw after him a number of votes from,
men who, in some way or other, are
dependent on him, though this is con
trary to our principles of political jus
tice. Men are equal, and ought to
have equal political rights.
The gentleman intimated that if thc
Western people had the power they
would abuse it. But he assigned no
reason why the people of the West
would be more likely to abuse power
than those of the East. Mr. S. did
not know that the Eastern people had
abused the power which they have.
But the better way is to distribute the
power, and thus give neither section
of the State an opportunity of abus
ing it.
But the gentleman asks, if any coun
ty has presented a grievance to this
Legislature which has not been prop
erly attended to ? Mr. S. said the e
gislature had not the power of wAy- f
ing a remedy to the grievarice .vhich
