The question recurring on the original resolution, the vote was taken viva voce, and resulted in its adoption. It reads as follows: 1. Be it Resolved and Declared by the People of the State of Virginia, in Convention Assembled, That the States which composed the United States of America, when the Federal Constitution was formed, were independent sovereignties, and in adopting that instrument the people of each State agreed to associate with the people of the other States, upon a footing of exact equality. It is the duty, therefore, of the common Government to respect the rights of the States and the equality of the people thereof, and, within the just limits of the Constitution, to

ng the amendment was to vindicate the truth of history. It was an undoubted fact that the Constitution was not submitted for ratification to the people of the United States as an aggregate mass, but each State acted for itself, in its separate character, in the highest attribute of its sovereignty.

The question being to strike out the words specified and insert the amendment offered by M. Fisher, Mr. Cox, of Chesterfield demanded the yeas and nays.

Virginia, in ratifying the Constitution, never surrendered her right to secede. She ought never to exercise it for light and trivial causes, but it was a right that was essentially necessary for the maintenance of her sovereignty. Mr. Fisher briefly advocated his amendment, which, he said, would not impair the unity of the report. Mr. Scott, of Fauquier, had been impressed with the idea that the resolution, as reported, would prove acceptable to every one, without amendment. The object of an amendment ought to be to remove an ambiguity.--The gentleman from Northampton proposes to substitute for the word "people," the word "States." Mr. Madison defined the word States to mean the people of the States. But to come to a higher authority than Mr. Madison, let us, said Mr. Scott, appeal to the record.
