WASHINGTON, D. C., August 28, 1869.
To the HON. JOHN A. RAWLINS, Secretary
of Wetr.' ' '
Sm: I have the honor to acknowledge
the receipt of yonr letter of July 27,
1869, iu which yon request my opinion
- upon so much of the questions submit?
ted7 .iii'the .letter of the . Commanding
Gennral of the First Military District,
dated 10th inst., and accompanying pa
pors,.copies of which nco enclosed, as re?
fers tb the legal qualifications of officers
td be elected under the proposed Consti
tution of the State of Virginia, and es
pecinlly upon the question whether per
eon's elected to office in such State under
said Constitution are required by the
supplemental Reconstruction Act of July
19, 1867, to take and subscribe tho oath
prescribed or referred to in Section 9 of
said Aot before entering upon tho duties
bf their respective offices. The latter
question is the only one indicated with
such distinctness as to enable me to bo
lally satisfied that its purport is appro
hended, and I propose to confine my an?
swer to that. By tho statute of April
10, 1869, tho registered voters of Virgi?
nia were authorized to vote on the ques?
tion of the adoption of a Constitution
for the State, and at the same time to
elect officers under it, subject to the ap?
proval of Congress. The voto has beou
taken in pursuance of' tho provisions of
the Act, and the election held, and some
parts of tho Constitution submitted have
been adopted by the people and others
rejected. Tho parts of thc proposed
Constitution thus adopted, if they shall
bo approved by Congress, will be thc
Constitution of Virginia, under which
all Its officers will be required to act, and
tho qualifications as well ns the duties of
these officers will be determined by it.
When Virginia is restored to its proper
relations to tho country as a State of the
Union, its officers and Legislature will
be s?oli as the Constitution of the State
provides, deriving their powers from
that instrument; and it will. clearly not
be in the power of Congress to impose
any requirement of additional qualifica?
tions npon them different from those
which, nnder the Constitution of the
United. States, may be required in all the
If, therefore, any tests were to be i rn
gosed npon members of the Legislature
ot provided by the Constitution of Vir?
ginia, or any restraint imposed upon the
people of tho State in their choice of
officers not recognized by it, and not
made applicable nnder tho legitimate
.powers of Congress to all the States, the
Legislature and officers would not, in
my opinion, be the Legislature and
officers of Virginia under its Constitu?
tion. I do not Bee that Congress can
undertake to furnish the State with a
suitable Legislature to start with, or to
exercise any control over ita composition
which could not be exercised over subse?
quent Legislatures. I am, therefore, of
tue opinion that the oath prescribed by
the statute of 1862, and by the statute of
July 19, 1867, Chapter 30, Section 9, re?
quired to be taken by all persons elected
or appointed tc office in said Military
Districts, nnder any so-called Stato or
municipal authority, is not to bo re?
quired of the officers of the State of
Virginia or members of the Legislature
eleoted under the new Constitution. It
does not seem to me that the provisions
of this second seotion, which are appli?
cable to the government of the State un?
der military authority, were intended to
apply to the Legislature and officers nn?
der whom the State is to be restored to
its proper relations to the Union, and by
whom the government of the Stato is to
be administered after its restoration.
This opinion is strongly confirmed by a
reference to the second section of the
same Aot, whioh authorizes the com?
mander of any District named in the
Aot to remove or suspend from office or
from the performance of official power
any officer or person holding or exer?
cising, or professing to hold or exeroise,
any civil or military office or duty in
said Distriot nnder any power, election,
appointment or authority derived from,
or granted by, or olaimed under, any so
called State, or the government thereof,
and to detail a competent officer or
soldier of the army to perform such du?
ties. It would be impossible to suppose
that Congress oould intend that a Legis?
lature, under the Constitution of a State,
could have its members appointed by a
detail from soldiers of the army.
Tho only reasonable conclusion seems
to me to be that it was not intended that
any such Legislature should bo allowed
to exist and aot until reconstruction was
completed, except for limited and quali?
fied purposes requisito to reconstruction;
but? on the other hand, I fully concur
with the view of tho General Command
Htrnotion Acts ot tJongress, no orncer or
mitted- to e^cjse any cf tho fonafapns
or powers of his office within that State,
except ?or far'aa/tiloso Acts themselves
Er o vi de, without taking the oath which
i referred to in the slafcnto ol 1867 abovo
quoted. The Aot of April TO, 1869. re?
quires the Legislature to meet at a time
which it designates-that it is to meet
implies that it is to come together for
some purpose. It is required, under the
previous law, to aot upon the question of
adopting the fourteenth amendment to
the Constitution of the United States
before the admission of tho State to rep?
resentation in Congress. I am of opi?
nion, therefore, that it may come to?
gether, organize nod act upon that
amendment, but not uutil Congress
shall have approved tho constitution and
the action under it and shall havo re?
stored the State to its proper place in
the Union by recognizing its form of go?
vernment as republican und admitting it
to representation. The Legislature is
not entitled and could not, without vio?
lation of law, be allowed to transact any
business, pass any Act, or resolve or un?
dertake to assume nny other function of
a Legislature if the test oath has not
been required of its members, and that
no officer elected under the new constitu?
tion can enter upon tho duties of bis
office without taking tho oath while mili?
tary governmont continues. Very re?
spectfully, . E.. R. HOAR,

ple that his purpose was to establish in

NORFOLK, Augnst 10,1869.-Yon need
not be frightened on finding me dead.
It was my wish long ago to die. I am
tired of a life of suffering and misery, as
I have led it for years. For years I havo
vainly struggled against slander and
calumniations, until nt last it hus torn
from my very bosom the woman I love,
and consigned me to a life of starvation
and misery. I have not a cent to savo
my life, no way of gaining anything, nor
any hope of getting anything to do; for
people are too Christian to trust a poor
man without a heap of recommendations.
A man may bo as great a scoundrel as he
likes, if he only has recommendations he
is sure to get a position; but the honest
man, who wishes nothing but to servo
his fellow-men, to do his duty faithfully
and thus make an honest living, must bo
persecuted, huted, slandered, nntil he is
entirely ruined. I havo fought this mi
serable propensity of men for twenty
years. I am now tired of it and desire
rest, and therefore have gone where
alone I can f iii il it-in tho grave,
hopo nt least it will bo granted me. It
is my last and only wish to bo allowed a j
grave. May tho proprietor of this nico j
hotel forgive rho that I went into his
house without meaus to pay for my
board. I wished, for onco, to feel like a
human being again. May the thought
that he cheered up the last moments of a
poor, unhappy wretch console him for
the loss of bis money.
Pienso send the letter yon' find to its
address. May tho Lord bless all who
have ever been kind to mo. May He
forgive me and rooeive me ia mercy.
