not be done it is a disputed question at the

but inr. Tvler lacks sotno
mouths of attaining ids majority. Can a
minor hold a seat In tho legislature is tho
question to bo met. There is no provision in
tho constitution, and no decision tlint wo can
find, which stales iu express terms that rep
resentatives to tno general court shall bo

makes tho houo tho judge of tho qttnlillea

then nric, "Can a minor hold u sent In the
Legislature, when bo is not qualified under
tho law to vote, his iiamo not appearing on
tho voting list?" It Is very evident' that
httcn a precedent would no a dangorous one,

When Henry Clay was choen United
States Senator ho was not of tho ago required
by the constitution to accent tho position.
He, however, waited till tho day when ho
completed his thirtieth year, and wo believo
tneroare otner instance', ol a similar nature,
on record in congress. Air. Tyler, If tho
legislature, should not conclude its session
boforo tho ICth of .May, 1800, enn legally tako
his sent, and in tho meantime wo are not
aware, ns it appears by the return', that tho
district wiiien no represents lias duly choen
its allotted number of members, that any va
cancy can bo declared. Is is a novel question
to settle, and while we have no doubt that
nir. Tyler is quite n competent to deltberato
upon tno weicitiy matters ol state in n ma
jority ot those clioen from thi city, it is im
portant that a decision should be had.
