T tbsFdiior of the Ner Yovk Herald:
; Richmond, Dec. 0, WO.
Five or six days jro I received a letter
from your. ; correspondent asking my
opinion as to the duties ot the t wo houses
ot congrest In counting the electoral
votes tor president. 1 was much eiijraireil
at the time, and having been long out ol
the porltleal world I thought It best to
leave it to others more actively
engaged in polities to dis
cus these question, and not to withdraw
my attention from other matters which
engage me just now. Cut the question
is becoming so important end porten
tious that It has occurred to me thi
morning that no good citizen should
withhold his opinion on this subject it
asked." If "the beginning of the end"
has not already occurred in the outrage
on popular rights which has been re
cently coujuiittej by the presldeut nnd
other officials in three of the weaker
etates. It Is time that the lovers ol popu
lar sovereignty and our old lorm ol gov
ernment were uniting to interpose for
the tlelcuce of the Union and the right
ot the people to govern themselves and
elect their own presidcut. How this can
be preserved without the right of con
gress to go behind the returns of presi
dential electors and ascertin the number
of votes, and how east in the recent elec
tion, I do not well see. If it be the duty
of congress to "count" the votes given
for president, they certainly must have
the power to ascertain those
whom they are to count; and
how are they to do this unless
they have the power to go behind the re
turns? It is the exclusive interest of the
state to know if the voters were qualified,
but the whole people of the United
States are Interested to know how many
votes were cast and to what persons
given, for there arc facts which touch the
question of the election of the president,
who is the officer ot all. Who so fit to
examine into those questions, if doubttul,
as the congress who are the united repre
nentatives ot the whole people? llow
rise are the people to be made certain as
to the man truly elected to that mon Im
portant of all these oflices ?
A TOW ER IF NOT GIVKS IX TKTt.MS TO 1!F.
mm ed. .
If there le no mode of reaching theso
results unless there be power in congress
to go behind the returns the interference
Is not only fair but necessary that such a
power is to be Implied. To make this
Implication equal to tho exigency It is
equisite ; but to vest this power in con
gress, which represents tho whole pcoplo
in times ot deep popular excitement, or
of utter corruption In a state, a strong
temptation to return thin vnt falsely
might exist in a particular state, when, ns
at present, a single electoral vote might
and of executive polity. Times may be
apprehended when there might be dan
ger of a state yielding to such a tempa
tion if the opportunity were given it with
power in the congress to detect and pni
vent it. If the power does not exist now
in congress there is none to prevent or
heck such an abuse if tho state were to
connive at it. To learn the question ol
time in this matter under tho supreme
control of the representatives ol the
whole people, the constitution- provides
that "congress may determine the time
ot choosing the electors and the day of
giving their votes, which day shall be the
lanie throughout the United .States"
( fourth section, second article).

I.K.S. But that congress may pass such laws
as thall enable It to count the vote of the
presidential electors is plain lrom the
provision that it may make all laws
which are necessary and proper for car
rying into execution the forgoing pow.
ers and all other powers vested by the
constitution in the government of the
United States, or In any department
or office thereof. It, may not
only pass . all laws necessary or
proper ' to execute the granted
powers, but pass such a may be
necessary to discharge a granted duty or
ntcesearlly supplementary to execute a
tunetion where the grant Is not of Itself
complete in terms.' Under this power
congress may make the laws which are
necessary to enable it "to count the
vote." As all the states are interested iu
counting truly the vote for president, so
that duty and the means necessary to dis
charge It ought to be confided to the con
gress of the whole. The place of "cast
ing" the vote for tho state, and perhaps
"the manner" of doing it, inot pecu
liarly concerns the state. Itself, to wbomi
perhaps, it would be projer to confide
those duties, but to ascertain who are
legally chosen as electors is the peculiar
duty of congress, which cannot be execu
ted unless it has
THE KIGUT TO CO iiEUIXD HIP. Kl.COKD.
I hold, tlferefore, that it Is not only
their right but their duty, it it be neces
sary to do to ; if that be necessary to ena"
tie tlein - to know - who are en
titled to cast the votes lyr
president.' The hlgeet ol nil rights
which a legislature possetvs is to pro
vide against anarchy, it, without men
action, it would ensue, t.'ould anything
be more likely to lead to this than a con
tested presidential election without the
means to settle it truly and justly''. lT
the right of Mil-defence, to protect your
life, be a law of nature, Is not the right
to defend the lifeol society, tbeexLt?nis
of a state, still more undoubted ? For
all these reasons I belive the right ot con
gress to go behind the records Is Indis
putable, aud do not thli.k it necessary to
investigate the question as to the exU-
trnoe ol tlio joint rule w hich pome r-cm
to think so Important. Tlio right of
concrcss to go "behind the rerords" to
nwc rtnlu whom they re to egunt I hold
to he indisputable and tonnded upon

It Is a question w h'tcli touches the peace
