"Or perhaps the state of parties may be more accurately distinguished by the votes for speaker. Mr. Harvey had 109; Hon. Mr Upham, 25; Hon. Mr. Thompson, 12 - This vote may be considered as deciding the strength of the republicans, of the moderate federalists, and of the ultra-federalists. Mr. Thompson's peculiar sentiments are well known; his supporters may be set down as the sum total of the adherents to the cause of the cidevant Trustees of Dartmouth College: Mr. Upham is known to be friendly to Dartmouth University; of course, it may well be supposed that a major part of the federalists in the Legislature is opposed to an aristocracy of religion, and that they will not bow the knee to the image which Nebuchadnezzar has set up."
