ing political fubj^rts, and as I 



vages, and pay its quota of the 
foederal and ftute debt, without 
a free trade of the river Miflifippi? 

Secondly. What probable pro- 
fpeds can a new State have of 
obtainig a trade down the Mifli- 
fippi; and what prfits can we 
derive f 1 om fuch a tra^e ? 

TLirdl) . w ill not a feparation

fuppoie that of a feparation from them to fall on us with greater

hope our p )liticisns will be pleaf- eviis we (after for want of a new

their fentiments on both lues of new date remedy thole evils? 

the queftion ; and 1 hope they And I would ask thOfe who

that coolnefs and impartial ty, Firlt. How fliall we defend 

which becomes men who have ourklves againft the lavages un-

Secondly. 'How can we pny 
the t ixesnoVfaid un land, tithes,

Thirdly. How can we take 
any ftcps towards promoiin'g and 
regulating a profivible trade dow n

Aifembl) regulate luch r*ade to

Fouitll,. is it not our true inHfc 
reft to become a manufacturing

what power have we to encourage 
Arts and Manufactures, and en- 
courage luxury, without a new

Fifthly. How can we encou- 
rage learning and fcience in our

Sixthly. Would not a govern-
