The position some of the teach
ers took at the County Institute, that,
in the sentence, " I h a s trrme. recollec
tion of hi$ afVr's being a poor man,"
fatket is in the possessive case and
man hi the predicate nominative, has
been disputed; and in a written com
munication mailed some of us from
Humboldt, we are called on to defend
ti. The position is supported first, by
Gold Brown says : " The possessive
case before the participle denotes, not ;
the possessor, but the agent of the ac
tion, or mbjed of th being, as, I
luxve tome knowledge of hi fdhrr's being
Fowler says: "A noun, depending
upon a participle used as a noun, must
le in the possessive case; as, 'He was
opposed to the nalion involving iteelf
in war. "
"Being a poor man." is the thing
recollected, modified by "Aw fitr,n
showing who possessed this condition.
"Being" while a participle, has the
reovernment of a ncun and is the
nhiect of the rrenosition "of" With
this general viewcoincide Quackenbos,
Bullions, Holmes, Butler, Pimieo,
Harvey and Greene. Thus we estab
lish that the noun before the participle
is in the possessive case.
2d. The neuter verb has not always
the same case after as before it; as,
"His being a mechanic Avas a great
advantage to him." Here "being" is
preceeded by the poseessivt) case and
followed by the nominative. Many
similar cases might be adduced.

i " man" after the participle "being"
i Ls in the possessive case. It can only
then, be in the nominative or object
ive. If objective, it must be govern
ed by a transitive participle,
which "being" is not ; or by a prepo
sition understood, which cannot be
supplied and make sense; or have an
adverbial relation of time, cause, man
ner, degree, affirmation or denial,
which a moment's reflection will show
anyone it has not; or because " being"
is preceded by an objective case,
which we have shown is is not. Hence
by a process of negative reasoning we
can readily see the "man" must be
4th. We claim this as the usage of
good authors, as:
"Cyrus did not wait for the Baby
loniin's coming up." lioUin.
"There is affirmative evidence for
Mtw.t being the author of these
works." Bithop Watnon.
" The time for lViUiam'i making the
experiment having arrived." Afxau
lay. "Its being a system." Blair.
"Its being a gratification." Camp
bfll, "It hirg he." Dichns' Xutes.
Of the sentence, "His being a law
yer," Dr. Bullion? sny; : " My opin
ion was hazarded that lawyer was in
the objective case. I have
adopted the correction. It is
simply the predicate nominative."
A comparison of these sentences
with the Saxon, and also with the
Latin and Greek idioms, still mere
firmly establish this position. K.
