necessity was, doubtless, used as a
means to prevent the Democratic,
members from resigning; anil it is

pressure was brought to bear upon
them which they had no other means
to resist. The ratification matter

ders, professions, business of every
kind will be placed under tribute.
We thought ourLegislatiire did their
