A large and tempting sum of money I eonfeas. I his I presume, air, it one among the many " vestures" with which thit " strong hold is enclosed." Surely, the people of North Carolina love money too well to resist thit bold temptation 1 . Dut let roe ask, it it certain, or even probable, that thit great saving of the public money will accrue f The ralcula tion it bottomed on the supposition that the legislature will continue no longer in session to do the busincit offit-o yean, than it has done to do tbe business of one year...La the practical coocoroa of life, to do more business requires more time : and it is altogether probable that the bicn niel sessions of the legislature would con tinue longer than the annual, and of course the expected saving would be di minished. The sessions might not be twice as long, and a small saving of public mo ney might accrue ; but the lota of power to the people, and other evils which would probably follow, would be more than equivalent. to -the gain; and the saving would '.urn out, like the Indian .gun, to cost more than it would come to. . But it ia alledged that too greet intta bility exists; in our laws; that the legis lature too frequently pass laws at one ses sion, and repeal them at the next. What law, I ask, really calculated to promote the public interest, has been passed at one ses sion, and repealed at the ne x t ? None, I presume, can be adduced. That laws at variance with the interest of the people, have been passed at one session and re pepealed at the next, I admit. Would it be better to continue such laws in exist- once lor two years, and let them grind the people i Such would be the practical result of the biennial meeting of the le i ; i gislature. I have thus endeavored, sir, to give you a common sense view of your remaining " strong hold' of convent bn. That some benefits would result from its adoption, is not doubted ; but that many evils would also flow, is equally certain. Whether good or evil will predominate, is left to the good ' sense of the people to deter mine. ' But is there no daneer that the transcendent powers of this convention may trample down other parts of the con stitution than those specified, and thereby endanger civil liberty The aame power which can alter one article, can alter two, three, or a dozen.
