The Convention then resolved itself into a Com
mittee of the Whole, Mr. Shober in the Chair, on
the Report of the. Sub-Committee of Twenty .six, iu
rotation to the formation or the Senatorial Districts,
and the apportionment of Member of the House
of Commons. '
Mr. Bowers moved to amend the Report, by ta-
'n8L?',iMemberi fjrpto.Su rry aiid giving it OuAjdie,.
au to entitle Surry Jo two -and Aalio to two, in-1
steeo ot giyinf one to the latter and three-to the
former, a reported. Meaid that this arrangement
would be agreeable to the Delegatea from Surry.
: : Mr. Collins, as Chairman, objected to the amend
ment. He aaid the Committee had been governed
by principles in making their arrangement, and it
would not do to derange it, merely to gratify the
individual wishes of gentlemen. -:
Mr. Williams, of Franklin, said, as a member of
he should go ajrainst any interference with their ar
rangement of Representation. In carrying out the
principle bid dowa and acted upon, ao GMudiaa
must necessarily suffer but it was unavoidable,
where such diversified interests are to be consulted.
Mr. Bowers replied. He did not wish to be un-
derstood as complaining of the operation of the rule,
wit his amendment was pressed on the score of mu
tual consent on tho part of the cbtinties interested.
Oing to the peculiar situation of Surry, she was
not only entitled to tbreeComnonerilbnt to Se.
nator, although her amount of taxation fell abort of
the ratio. Under these circumstances, it war but
fair to transfer one Commoner to Ashe, ;
The ainendracnt offered by Mr. Bowers waa ne.

Mr. Caraon also cnfiirced h' Wuinialilciicaa of 'J
the claim on the part of Burke, and atuted that tho
Delegate from the two counties 'interested had had
a friendly mooting and investigated the mutter, and
the conclusion wua arrived at, that Burko waa fairly :
entitled to it.
Mr. Smith, of Yancy, confirmed thi statement.
Thirnmendmiint waa ngreed lo.
Mr. Melchor moved to detach Montgomery from
the 33rd Senatorial District, and add it to the I) llli,
an a to ferm a District mit of Moore od Moiitgo.
merv, and entitle Cnbarru to a Senator, by adJiuj
the excess from other counties.
This amendment wa earwstly advocntisl by Mr.
Gaines, 'and warmly opitosed by Mr. Kelly. Mr.
Kelly said there was no identity of leolins between
