tion (which expressly guaranteed perfect and unimpaired sovereignty as to all matters of internal government to all the states leagued under it) cannot be again called in question, before any other tribunal than the General Assembly of this Commonwealth, without a dangerous and unconstitutional assumption of power, which, if exercised, would give birth to a series of pernicious and disgraceful consequences, the extent and duration of which, it is hardly possible to measure or calculate:

Resolved therefore, That the jurisdiction of the supreme court of the United States, does not and cannot extend to this case, it having been already decided on before a tribunal fully competent to its decision.

Resolved, That the state cannot be made a defendant in the said court, at the suit of any individual or individuals.

Resolved, That the executive be requested, to pursue such measures in this case, as may to them seem most conducive to the interest, honor and dignity of this Commonwealth.

December the 20th, 1792.-Agreed to by the Senate.
