* /The veneraolo chairman of the meeting—
i M ni. McMahon, honest and true to the last,
next arose and implored the meeting in the

enthusiastically cheered.

minority of the Electors clearly indicates as the
measure they and their adherents are resolved
to pursue: and whereas we are utterly opposed
to a revolution, which may involve us in all the
frightful horrors of a civil war, tarnish the ho

which no man can forsee,—and hold in abhor

I am now as l always have been, the decided '
and zealous Ihend of reform and will cheerfully !
go as far as those who step the farthest to re-j
medy the grievances complained of in our pie- !
sent form of government, according to the mode j
indicated by the sages who named our consti !
tulion. To any other model would object at
this time, as being dangerous alike to the stabili
ty of our institutions, to the interest and honor
of the State, and to the peace and happiness of
her citizens.
Upon the present very excited state of public
feeling. I doubt very much whether any form of
government could be adopted, which would ]
j prove at all acceptable to the v/iute people, or
j give peace and quiet to the State.
I humbly pray however, that a season much
more propitious to a calm discussion of the in
teresting subject of ref,rm is m*t far distant,
when we will ail see *‘how sweet and pleasant it
is for brethren to dwell together in unity and I
love”—when the feuds and angry bickerings <>f
party strife will have died away, and floated
aown th* stream of time no more to be remem
bered,or remembered only to be condemned and
regretted, when we will all be able to set down
together a* our fathers did of old, intent only
on forming such a system of Government as
"i ! a'1''anc# ,he prosperity 0f the state, the
honor and happiness of the people, and enib’e
us to hand down to tho latest posterity, uninv
paired, the advantages and blessings of a free
government. With sentiments u(respect, 1 an,
gentlemen, your Iriend truly.
