Our doctrine is not that State Legislature haa
any right to Interfere, except to petition and to pro-

Some person entertain the opinion that the respec

KtalMrthat the Colintiee do to a State ; or, in other
word, that tlie State are nothing more than mere cor
porauonsy or muaicipalitie, that derive their powers
from the General Government, A grosser political he

is true. The General Government is the creature of tin

Iminediatelr after the adjournment of tne uenerai
Convention which formed tU Constitution, in 1787, tlie
sovenil States called together Conventions for Uie pur-
rie of considerina whether they would adopt or reject
the new Constitution. The Convention of the 8tate of
PBtuwylvania met in November 1787. Mr. JameeVMI-
son, wno naa iusi icii me ucncioi wm
was k leading inomber, and on? of tliat party who
- i ' . I . C .L. C. I . ii . ii o
were in favor ot reducing ine wwer oi i
11,01 member of the Pennsylvania Convention. He
explained, at great lenpth and with much ability, the
various parte and objects of the new Constitution, and
in tlie course of his remerks he said" llie uniieu
Stntea already contain thirteen Governments mutually

How could Janpuajje more cienny express me nsn-

this they had declared their independence, , end, by the
success of their arms, they had constrained even un

Now, we have always thourrht that, where there jj,
