A fier a long and ablediscussin. the Conveniion determiiied by a stronr vote linst the expedinncy of nui'tiplying new and Migurona ic-ts of mcmbersliip in the Liberty irty. The deep Fcctiff! thnt secmed to pervade ie soul. of that vost nuüieiue w;is still lo "cry oud and spare not and lo lift up thcir voicc lilc truiiifH-t for the spnedy delivcrance of ilie cip- ve.
