' TII I. NEW CONSTITUTION.
.The proposed change in; the . or
ganic law of • the Commonwealth
should elicit -the mo'st careful scrutiny
of every voter. The doeument should
not be 'viewed in a parti6n light, but
each citi en should .peruse it vtith a
view to determining whether the
neiv is b tter than the old. This, we
-(1olubt - n i ot, most of °or readers have
done. It seems to us that 'every un-
prejudic d mind must admit that,
with all is fault.% the constitution to
be- vote upon on the nth of De
cember is far superior in . giany. es
sential oints to the old one. Those
sectionswhich appear cbjpetionable
'can easi ybe altered or amended,' if
experie4ce proves the objections
well founded. , , ' 1

poses of the repekt which has been
insidiously eireuratedl among' repnb

as to give the legislatiire to the dem

the surrounding counties are entitled to one or
more senators. This exception was pat in to
meet a simple case---DelaWare being surround

The ratio for iris is 7p,430... A.s this will in
come a direet districting of the S'ate by the
Legislature, we presume no tear is felt as re-1
gards the Senate. As to; the House it is to bei

shall have one for every full ratio. The motive
