How ('csxnr.s ELECTI THE PRESIDE.T
AN VXir Pi:EIw. .T.--It may be useful
just ablut this time to reproduce the
statetlentil the approach of a Presidential
electiin Imakes opportune every four
years. It is thus succinctly given by a
writer in the New York Times;
The House of Representatives has
o thing what.sv-.r to do with tie election
,f a Vice President, nor the Senate with
.sk 'ti,,n if a 'resident. The powers
'f aech body are distinct and wutirely
independent of the other.
If' no President be chosen by the elec
tors. the House of Representatives may
choose the President, their choice being
re.-tricted to the persons having the
highest numbers, not exceeding three
ion the list of those voted for as Presi
It n." Vice President he chosen by the
,elcttrs. the Seniate shall choose the
Vi',. President from the two highest
Ilurlltr ls i tile list of those voted for
Vi-,o I'resiid nt.
It the INoose fails to elect a Presi
dent before the 4th of March , e\t foi
lowi:g. tih,:n the Vice President
whether electedI by the electors or by
the ~.rs'te--shall act as President.
The rule ,or manner of voting under
which the Senate chooses a Vice Presi
dent is exactly the reverse of that
ehich ;giverns the House in choosing a
Pr..-;h.tnt--each being the reverse of
