who were more sensibly nine on the u!

hoped, therefore, they would be retained
as they did 110 injury
Mr. MoBirum knew vectr well that any
interference with this subject would be
liible to misrcpresrnTailonT and mi jht
rreate alai own certain minds; but he al
so knew that this body ooiht lo r!o what
w..s right, regardless of idle chmor. As
one of the committee who formed this
Report, he suffered this section to pass
tnb titititio ; but he was perfectly willing
to trust the people with the selection of
their Representatives, without this pro
vision, which he considered us a ntl.-c'Mii
on the present enlightened age. and as a
relict of a persecuting spirit. Under the
old governments of Europe such a pro
tision might be proper, but there it no
necessity for it here. We have nothing
to apprehend from Clergymen hrre.
Some of them, no doubt, would make
good mcmliers of ussrmhli, .imi he would
place no bar. in their way, though the
might probubly he more useful at home.
He should therefore be in fivor of ex
punning this section.
Mr. Harrington said, his motion hud
been o ably defended by the gentleni.111
from Orange, it was unneresstry for him
lo add a word. In reference, lo w hat had
fallen from his Itkiid from Casaell, he
would refer him to a case that occurred
in the Semite some years airo. wnrn a
Ketlrman of talents from one of our res
pectable counties was deprived of bis seat
on this account.
Mr. Tawre.y thought that it would be
wxll recollected ihe case to which the gen,
State snstained no great injury the place
of the gentleman was soon supplied. As he
had already observed, "he saw "no necessity
for the provision ; but a? our. ancestors
had thought prudent to make it, he was
unwilling to meddle with it.
Mr.Pfuffr was of opinion that the Ee
clesiastical and Civil Department, ought
10 be left apart. Our Constitution pro
hibits other-besides Clergymen from
M.$siaXhJ$ll!?it',t.. wri Je. thought
it was riebt to-do so. Mr. r. reterred to
some inconvenieoces which had been ex
Dei ienced iii " the Legislature" of Sourtr-
men? to ., itax Jn iheir., tegis!aturf.. No
man had a more exalted opinioa of a. real
pious clergyman than himself, but he did
not wish to see them in the Legislature.
Mr. Mangum said, the remarks which
fell from him on thiaeubject did not pro
ceed from iuiy particular religious vie a.
He deemed it imBroDer to retain a pro-
Vision of this kind in our Constitution at
