From the New York Observer
Mewl. Pali:tore—The' following narrative,
relating a fine, not to say a sublime scene, In
the Couvontion.tharframed the Constitution of
the United Staten, was originally derived froth
Gen.•Jonalhnn Dayton, of New Jersey. He
nap the 'Junior member' that moved the 're
-cmisideretion,' mentioned below. The account
is full of interest and instruction at the present
time, when the spirit of discord and selfishness
is so Hr . ° in our. national . couheils. Would that
a copy of it could be sent every member of our
National Legislature, and that it could be read ,
by every Christian and patriet•throughoUt the
I was, (said 'Gan. Dayton.) n.delegate from
Now Jersey in the General COnvention which
assembled - in - Philadelphia; - fie - the - purpose — of
digesting a Constitution for- the United States,
and I believe I was tho youngest 'tmber of
that body. The great and good Washington
was then, oar President, and Dr. Franklin, a
Pennsylvania. A disposition was aeon disoor
eied in come members to display themselves in
oraterical_flounalme—but the good sense and
discretion of the majority put down all'eueb at
tempts. We had convened to deliberate upon',
and if possible effect, a great national object—
to search toripolitical, wisdom arid truth ; these
we maont - t pursue witlusimplicity, and to a-.
void every thing whichwould .have a tendency
to divert our attention, or perplex our scheme.
A great ,Yari - Oty, of = n!ojects were proposed—
all Fe - pi - Miceli in their general outline, but dif
iering.idtheir 'details. It was therefore deter-
Mined That certain elementary principles should
at first be . established, in each branch of the la.
tended Constitution,—anA, aftErwards the-do - -
tails should be debated - and filled up.
Diem o:au little oi no difficulty in determi
ning upon the elementary principles—such as'
for instance that the government should bo
repulecan reprementative governinent—that it
should be divided Into three branches, i. o. Leg
islative, Executive,-Judicial, &c. But when the
organization Of the Legislative branch 'coiner
under consideration, it was easy to be nuclei's;
cd that the Eastern and Southern States had
distinct interests, which it was difficiat o.roc
oncile,—and that the larger Statv wore die
-posed to form a constitution, in vrlt.h the smal
ler States would be more apporidageo_and eat-.
ollites to the larger ones. On'tko.firat of these
eubjecte much animated and atirrinFdebate
had takin place, when the ratio of representa
tion- In - the - lower hntrof of emigrant . - wou - beforrr
us—the Southern .States elalming !or them.
solves the whole number of .black population . ;
while the Eastern' States were for Cenfining the
_ -
spoqt to color.
- A's the different parties adhered pertlmMions
ly to their' different positions, it wan feared
that-this ..would •prove an insurmountable obsta
cle ; but os the members wore already goner
ally satisfied that no constitution-eau k: be form
ed, which would meet the 'views and outman)
the interests of ouch individual Stale, i.t was ev
ident that it must be a matter of compromise
and mutual - coneension. Under these impres
sions, and with those views, it was agreed at
length that each State should be entitled to one
delegate in the House of representatives for
every 30,000 of its inhabitants—in which num
ber should be included three fifths of the whule
nil nber of their slaves.
,Vat the cicalla ofthepoiase of Represen
tativea were disposed of, a more knotty point
presented Raiff in the orgenizatieM of the Sen
ate. The larger Slates (=tended that the earns
ratio as to States should be epnanion to both
branches of the Legielature, or, in other words, 4 ,
that each State should be entitled to a ropfe;
sentation in the Senate, (whatever might be
the number fixed on,) in proportion to its pop
ulation as in the House of • Representatives.—
'The smaller States on the other hand contend
ed that the House of Representatives might' be
Considered as the guardian'of the liberties of
the people, and therefore ought to have a 'just
proportion to their numbers ;. but thkt the /Sen
ate represented the sovereignly of the States,
and that as each State; whether great or eaten
was eqUally an independent and sovereign State
it ought in this branch of the Legislature, to
have equal Weight and authority. Wittiout thin,
they said, there wouldbe no security for- their
equal rights, and they would, by such a distrt
, but ion of power, be merged' and lost fti the lar
ger States..—
Tide reasoning, however plain rind powerful,
had btit little influence on the minds of the del
egatealromthe larger Stator; and as they form
ed a. large majority of- the Convention, th o
questidn, after passing ihrotigh thO forme ado.
hate, was decided 'that 'each Slate sliould be
represented in the Senate in prOportion to its .
When iho Convention had adjourned over to
the next day, the 'delegates of the four smallest
States, viz: Rhode Island, Connecticut, New
Jersey and Delaware, eon:ens:3lo consult what
course was to ha pursued in the important mi•
siiiat which we had arrived. After serious in
vestigation, it'vras solemnly determined to MA
fur a reconsideration the next morning;, end if
it was not granted—or if when granted, that
offensive feature of the constitution eould, i net
be expunged. and the smaller States put upon
an equal footing with the largest, ivo would ac

that the question had received a full , and fair,

speakers; a rupture appeared almost inevitable,

contained some individuals - possessed of talents

Dr. Frankly]. - Ile was esteemed' the Mentor
of our body: To a mintinaiurally strong and
capacious, enriched by much reading Mid expe
rience of many ye'drs, lie added a- manner of
communicating his (houghs peculiarly his own,
in which simplicity, beauty, and strength were
equally conspicuous. As soon as -the angry
orators who had preceded him had left him an
opening, the Doctor rose, evidently impressed
with the weight of the subject before them,
aed the difficulty of managing it successfully.
"\Ve have arrived, Mr. President,"said he, Stet
a very momentous and interesting oriiis in our
-deliberations— Hitherto. outfleHii - views been -

could reasonably have been expected.—
But now an unlocked for and formidable ob
stacle is thrown in ourwas, which threatens
to arrest our course, und-rif not skilfully remo- .
ied, to render all our fond hopes of a, Constitu
lion abortive. The. ground which has been
taken b x , the delegates of the four smallest
States was as tioexpeeled by me earl as repug
nant to soy feelings, as it could he -to-any other
member of this Collection. After What I
thought a - full and impartial invetigation of
the subject, I recorded my vote on the affirm

-those gentledienwho'differ froin 'me aro under

late proceedinga - ought to takeplace upon prin
ciples of politiCal justice; or that, all things
considered. the majority may see cause to re
cede from some of their just pretensions, as .a
matter of prudence and Amino:lice. For my
own part, there is nothing I no much dread as
a failure to devise and establish sense efficient,
and equabfbrin of government for our infant
republic. 'The - present effort has been made
under the 'happiest auspices, and has promised
the must favorable resulla ; hul,eb c
ouhl this ef

be made with

strength.and our prosperity will depend on our
unity ; 'and the secession of_ even -Tour of the

in my pai•alszu and render eselPss any
plan which the majority could devise, 1 should
therefore be grieved, Mr. President; to see mat
ters brought to the test which has heen,perhaps
too rashly, th'reatened on the one basil, amt
which !moo of honorable colleagues have .
'treated too lightlylin the other. I win - convinced
Ural it is a subject which should he approached
with caution. treated with tenderness, and de
cided on with candor end liberality. It is,
however, to be feared,that the members of this
convention are not in a'temper, at this dement,
to approach the subject on which we direr in
a proper spirit.
I would therefore lle, Ir. President,
that, without proceeding further an this
.bus i
ntim now, the Convention should adjourn for
three days, in order to - let the Presc s ot ferment
! •
pass off, and to afford time for a more, lull and

I would earnestly recommend to the members
of this Convention that they spend the time of
this recess, not-in associating with their 'own

themselves in their etvn opinions, but:thut they
mix with mombera of opposite sentiment., lend
in patient par to their reasoning,-and candidly
allow them ell the weight to which they — may
ha entitled; and when we assemble again, I
hope it will be with a determinlition to form a
Conititution—if not such it one no we can in

in whht manner it affected others. , They did

dultivated,which promised at least a cairn and
dispassionate reconsideration of this subject.

said much, and thought more on tho subject ;
ho saw difficulties and Mbjections which might

now more than ever convinced that the Consti
tution which they were about to form,'ln order
to be just and equal, must be founded on the
basis of compromise and mutual concession.—
With such views and feelings, he would now
move a reconsideration of Alio %nit°. last taken
