The Secret Debates of the Convention
Vsembled at Philadelphia in the year 17g*
to form the
Constitution of the U. States.
To which will be added other Historical
Documents relative to the Federal Coit.
pact of the North American Union.
1^H£ Journal of the Convention which
formed the present constitution of the
United States, and which was published in
pursuance ol a resolution of Congress, of
March 27, 1818, contains all the acts and
proceedings of that constitutional body, but
it leaves history in the dark‘as to the view?
.»f the legislators, and the principles upon
which they acted. It is to replenish that
deficiency, and fill up, in some measure
that diplomatic skeleton, with its vital party*
that a friend of history offers to publi.-h, 0f
he is sufficiently encouraged iu that under
taking, several authentic coeval document*,
collected with care and expense, which ni||
enlighten the civilian, the jurist, and the
«'atesiiian, on the spirit of the North Amen
can FederalCornpact; while at the same time
those precious relicts will supply the histo
rian, the philosopher, and the moralist, with
very curious comparative facts, on the varia
tions of public opioion, iu the United States
with respect to constitutional principle, and
on a succession ol events, which are the na
tural, if not necessary results ot a pre-ex
isting order of things.
But on those subjects the editor will ah
stain from making any comments; like mo.
dern fabrics affixed to the majestic monu
ments of antiquity, such additions would in
jure the general effect of the original matter:
Nothing then must be expected in this pub
lication, but (he debates of the convention,
as (hey have been daily recollected by the
late re«pectable Chief Justice Yates, and
copied from hi* n- te« by the late chancellor
of the state of N-.-w York, Mr. John Lansing,
bis colleague a* a delegate to the conven
tion, and both distinguished republicans;
To wnich will be annexed, to supply the
vacuum occasioned by the departure of those
two gentlemen from the convention before
ifs termination, the genuine information de
livered t*> the legislature of the state o» Ma
ryland, relative to the proceedings of the
federal convention, by Mr. Luther Martin,
then attorney general of that state and o”e
of the Delegates in the sa d convention ; an
extract of the journal of the convention, con
taining the various plans of constitution,
presented by the several states, and the
constitution of the United States, with all
the amendments ratified, as at present exist
It is supposed that the work will compose
