At the supreme court in November 1 784, Co!. af-fcr- Benjamin Logan called together at Danville a large number of the Inhabitants from all parts of this Diftricl who were auendhg there on bufi-ncf- t, and informed them that he had.lately been to the Cherokee Nation to enquire about certain hostilities that had lately been commiteed on this Country; and from 'he information he gave of the milchiefs that had been done, and the then e intention of the Savages, it was thought immediately in carry an expedition against them. The meeting adjourned till the next day, when a large number met to devise way? and means for carrying on the said expedition ; But finding there wa? no law to cafl out the Militia or procure provifidns, they were obliged to de' cline it. Alarmed at this situation, every one prefentfaw tb&abXblutp-ncceflit.together ibo.wif-- . dom of the Diftricl in a general Council to tafce the then fta:e of our detached in'o and diftreffed Country: and they directed tb'dt e very Captains company lhould elect a man for that purpose. This was the first Convention, which met in Danville in Decern iei 1784: mdifter ten days deliberation lefoived that the District laboured under many inconveniences which .might be iv applying. ro the Leg'flauve of Virgi-nia- ; and many orber- - which from our loci n could never be redrelfed till this Diflrili fbntld becomi aSiparate Government; wiiich leve-ra- l grievances they enumerated Poplicola is mif taken in fuppofmg this Convention de'erminedon the expedience iof a Separate ST.te; a motion was made to that purpose, but it was notfeconded. The Convention thend'ffo.ve t themfelvcs, and directed an election for a new Convention ; and recommended it to tire gooH people of the Diftrict ferioufiy to consider whether it would be proper to apply for a Separation. This new Convention met in May 178S, arid aster abour ten days deliberation resolved (I think unauimoufly) that a Separation was neceffary. But as we had no press in the Country, and searing the good people in general had not sufficient notice, and would not be sully satisfied with the mea-futthey resolved to publilTi their relblutions in writing as well as they could at the Courr-hotife- s and elsewhere; and ordered a new Election, recommending it to the people (as before) ferioufiy to consider of Jhc expediency of the measure proposed. A third Convention elected agreeable to this resolution met in August 1785, ind were nearly the same nenbetj as befoie; who unanimously resolved that it was the interefl of the Diftricl to become a Se arate State; and petitioned the of Vngmiato pafsan Act for that purpose. The trembly did pafs'an Act for our Separation, in which it was declaicd on what terms we might obtain it provided the people of the Diftrict woui t accept of the terms offe;cd; and this ,Law directed a convention to be chosen to meet in Seprember 1786 to de'eimine the matter; but this Convention was prevented fiom meeting at that t.me by two expeditions then going against ihe Saage.

ThTs petition wasTngenuouflv fraught with much injurious falfhood. both acainft rbp ed, and the m inner of conducting the elccrionsin the District; which, together with this Genrlri. man's industry among the members of the Affera-bl- y in theOctobei Seffion 1786. gained fech credit as to make them really doubt th t our leading men weic designing, and had petitiored for a se paration contrary to the general wish of the people: and the Affembly, (ever attentive to, andde-firou- s to piomote ou inteiefts) were induced to pass a Law for electing another C'orver.nV n to meet in Sepiemher 1787, to de'ermine the said quefticn.
