A change in the manner of voting for the new Constitution contrary to the require- ments of ihuold if a fair and fearless express- ion of opinion il1 regard to annexation had been desired is by both parties much to be regretted : inasmuch as the whole world on the one baud is looking with aslonishmeut and abhorrence on our act of national suicide; and on the other the friends of annexation both here and in the United States claim and demand nothing more than a bare majority to carry us into the Union. his a bold absurdity to say ...
