SATURDAY, APRIL 18, 1863.
National Convention of the States.
The following is the toped of the minority of
the Committee on Federal Relations of the innate
of Pennsylvania, made by Messrs. CLYMER and
LAMEERTON, on the 6th inst., recommending the
selling of a Convention of the States, with a view
to a settlement of our National difficulties
, MINORITY REPORT.
The undersigned, a minority of the Committee
on Federal Relations of the Pennsylvania Senate,
to which sundry petitions of citizens of this
6=mo:timid/ were referred, praying that step
may be taken to secure a convention of the
United States, dissenting from the report of the
majority of said committee, make the following
The petitions referred to the committee are
numerously signed; and relate to a subject of
high importance. In the opinion of the under
signed, they are entitled to fair treatment and
respectful consideration ; and there is no ground
for imputing improper motives to any of those
who have proposed or signed them. They pro
pose a coarse of action perfectly conformed to the
Constitution—one, in fact, expressly provided
for by that instrument—and were doubtless in
spired by an earnest, sincere desire for the peace,
reunion and prosperity of the United States.
The undersigned cannot discern the insupera
ble difficulties opposed to the holding of a con
vention within a reasonable time, supposed to
exist by tha majority of the Committee. The
statement made by them that amendments cannot
be adopted before the latter part of the year
1865, would seem to be quite unfounded. Con
grew can, itself, propose amendments by a two
thirds vote, and upon application made by two
thirds of the States, is required to call a conven
tion for the purpose of framing them. Two
thirds of both Houses of Congress, or a coma
Lion convened at the instance of the Legislatures
of two-thirds of the States, can, at any time,
submit any proposition of amendment to the
States, which, upon ratification by three•fourths
of them, will become a part of the Constitution.
In the Legislature of any State desirous of ob
taining amendments, two courses of action are
open. First, by memorial to Congress, or by
resolutions of instruction, and request to the
Senators and Representatives of the State, in
favor of the exercise by Congress of its power to
submit amendments; and, second, by making a
formal application to Congress to call a Conven
In ibis State, the Legislature being now in
session, either course of action may be taken at
once, and all delay avoided so far as she is con
earned, and doubtless such action taken here
would have large influence in other Slates. Al
ready Kentucky has demanded a convention, and
action looking to the same end has been had in
other States. If Pennsylvania should now raise
her voice for a convention, it would give impetus
to the movement, and probably Secure lin ace
The majority of the Committee allude to the
fact that in some of the States the'regular ses—
sions of the Legislature are biennial, from which
they infer that there would be great delay in
their acting upon this subject. But in any
Case where a biennial session falls within the
present year, the objection fails, and where the
foot is otherwise, the Governor of the State can
convene the Legislature. Besides, the States so
circumstanced are few in number_
It may be further remarked, that in all the
States the Legislatures can be convened by the
Governors, and that in most of them, they meet
in regular session within the current year.
It is manifest, therefore, that the majority of
the Committee have fallen into error in stating
the time necessary to procure amendments to the
Constitution under the article of that instrument
which provides for them. Neither the Constitu•
tion of the United Slates, nor those of the States,
prevent the formation of amendments within a
It is true that the Governors and Legislatures
of many States, may be opposed to the proposi
tion of a convention, and by reason thereof, it
may be delayed or defeated. But we have here
a question not of possibility or power, but of
inclination or will in official and public bodies,
which it is the very object of the petitioners to
incline to their own views, and as two-thirds of
the State legislatures can command a convention
the petitioners may be hopeful of attaining their
object and stand justified in pursuing it.
The Constitution was framed by a convention,
and provides for its own amendment through the
same agency. The true question, therefore,
raised by the petitioners is, ought such body to
be convened The majority of the committee
answer this question by denying the propriety
or necessity of amendments_ They seem satis
fied to resolvelbe whole subject of our national
existence and the future relations of the States
into a mere question of force, and to reject all
the instrumentalities for securing the system
established by 'our fathers. It follows, that if
their own remedy for division should be found
insufficient, the Union is to remain broken and
separate, and probably hostile powers are to be
established upon the rains of the republic. But
such result would be intolerable, and every hon
orable means for preventing it should be resorted
Were a convention now held, the following
States, heretofore classed as Southern, would be
represented therein, to wit: Delaware, Mary
land, Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Ails-
Dona These, added to the eighteen Northern,
Western and Pacific States, would make twenty
four, or more than two-thirds of the whole num
ber of the States, including the seceded ones.
It is possible also that Louisiana and other exist
ing States South, not named above, would soon
participate in the proceeding, as would certainly
any new State admitted into the Union in the
West. (Colorado or Nevada, for instance, an
act preparatory to the admission of which, came
near being passed at the last session of Con
gress.) At all events, if success should attend
the Federal arms in South Carolina, Arkansas
and Texas, during the coming months of the
present year, the Union sentiment of those States
would be developed and organized by the pen
dency of this measure of a convention, and their
strength would probably be won to our cause.
And doubtless over the whole field of the strug
gle the measure would strengthen the cause of
the Union and weaken the cause of those opposed
to its reconstruction.
A convention would afford an opportunity to
the Conservative and true Union men of the
country (who are in a great majority) to take
direct action upon our public affairs and secure
them from the hands of extreme and violent in
terests ; to stop the effusion of blood and the ac
cumulation of debt; to re-establish the Union
firmly upon the consent of the States composing
it; and "to provide safe-guards against future
eonvnlsions and wars."
C. L. LAMB/IEIIM
The committee submit the following preamble
and resolutions for adoption :
Whams, . Angry sectional controversy, long
indulged, has culminated in the assumed seces
sion of a number of the States of the Union, and
in a civil war which baa already raged for nearly
two years with unsurpassed violence and car
nage, wasting the lives and substance of the
people of both sections, and filling the land with
misery and lamentations;
And whereas, a continuance of a Union of all
the States is indispensable to the peace and wel
fare of the people, as well as to the attainment
of a great nationality;
And whereas it is believed that ordinary mea
ning of legislation may prove insufficient to 're
move the primary causes of the present strife,
of to adjust the complications that have arisen
And whereas, the fifth article of the Conetittition
of the United Staten, provides that ''the Congress,
° :whenever two-thirds of both houses shall deem
Ineimesary, shall propose amendments to the
CoOtitaition, or, on the application of the Logis
litnretiOf two- t hirds of the States, shall call a
oenventiortfor proposing amendments, which, in
either ease, shall be valid to all intents and pur
poses as part of..this Constitution when ratified
by theLegishitnres of Ihree - fourths of the States,
or by conventions in three fourths thereof, as
the ens oEll4:other mode . of ratification may be

who, mostly in a short time, enjoyed a degree of pros

to be fecund. Considering the infancy of the settlements,
much has already been dote for Schools.
The Company offers to settlers great adverting.. The
land is sold—Wood or Prairie,—at
from $6 to $l3 per acre,

Dystnenorrhaa, and Irritation of the Blarlder. I called
physician, who attended her about three months, when he
left her worse than he found her. I then employed one of
the best physicians I could find, who attended her !Mahout
nine mouths, and while she was under hie care she did sot
suffer quite es mach pain • be finally gave her up sot
said "her can wad incurable." For. said he, "eke leas
each a combination of complaints, that medicine giwo
