"There ore many reasons for this great
and desirable change, chief among which
are the outrageous character ot many of
tbe provisiots ot ihe new Constitution,
the inhuman and disgraceful persecution
of ministers of the gospol, the arrest aod
imprisonment o .teachers, the wild and
wasteful extravagance of tbe part;
power, ssdling upon tho people a load of
taxation which, they can illy afford to
