The Daily Dispatch: November 25, 1861., [Electronic resource], Proclamation of General Dix to the people of Accomac and Northampton counties. (search)
The Convention. Considerable progress was made on Saturday in the proposed amended Constitution. The chief debate of the day grew out of a to insert a clause devolving the election of Governor upon the General Assembly according to the custom of the earlier of Virginia's political history. The preposition found many staunch advocacies foremost among whom was Lieutenant-Governor Montague, who produced some and arguments in favor of the amendment speakers opposed it, one of whom, Gray, took occasion to make a defence of Governor Letcher, the debate having turned accidently upon the Petersburg Democratic invention, and other political events of the four years. The proposition was finally defeated by a vote of 42 to 60, and the people not be asked to ratify any change in the manner of electing their Chief Magistrate.
