The Question was put thereupon?

Protest against receiving Report of the Amendments:

DISSENTIENT:

"1.-Because this Bill will effect a Change in the Constitution of Parliaments to an Extent uncalled for, and full of Danger; incapable of producing much practical Good, but likely to prove in its Operation subversive of the antient and settled Institutions of the Country.

2.-Because, by an uniform and low Rate of Qualification in the Towns, the greatest Share of Power will be given to the smallest Portion of Property, which will tend to make every Description of Property, whether Mercantile, Colonial, Real or Personal, equally insecure.

3.-Because it is in its Character not remedial, but revolutionary; in Practice equally injurious to the poor and to the rich; depriving the Government of the Strength which it requires, and Property of its due Influence; endangering as well the Stability of the Throne as of every Civil and Religious Establishment under which, in this Country, Commerce, Prosperity and Freedom have attained an Elevation envied, but as yet unrivalled, by all the Nations of Europe.
