Mute, Sec' v of State.- Sir : In your communication of the 8ih, you enquire 'whether or not serin issued tinder ih provisions of the Act of the Legislature of this State, approved March 15. 1852. can bo located upon any lands included within the provisions of the Ac! of the said Legislature, approved March IG, 1852." ' 1 In order to determine the noint nresented. a careful examination of the two laws is neces sary. I admit upon looking at the Act of the lfitb of March, that it might be inferred from the lan guage of the 1st, 2d, and 3d Sections, that it was the intention of the Legislature that the lands should only be subject lo entry wiih scrip issued to the counties in which they were situ ate. But on looking further into the Act wo find the following provisions. After providing for the issuance of scrip, the Act says : "Said scrip to be governed in all respect by the provisions of the twelfth, thirteenth, four teenth fifteenth and sixteenth sections of an act entitled an act, to provide for the construction of a levee upon the Mississippi Kiver, for the re clamation of the State and school lands and for other purposes." The 12th section of the last cited act provides also lor the issuance of other scrip, and pre scribes its form and effect in the following words : " County, Land Warrants, No $80. "The holder hereof, is entitled to one quar ter section of land not before located under certificate of like character, to be selected by him on or before the first day of October, '53. if the submerged lands donated by the Congress of the United States lo the State if Mississippi f Provi ded, Notice thereof 6hou!d be given to the un dersigned. Secretary of Stale, on or before the 1st day of October, 1853." (S'g") --Sec. of State. You will observe the 4th Section of Act 1(5 March, says that scrip issued under it shall be governed in all respects by the fore o-oing sec tion as well as the 1 4th, 15ih, and IGth of same act. And you will further observe that this 12th section secures to the holder of scrip the body and unrestricted right to locate it upon the sub merged lands in Mississippi donated by Con gress. The form of expression adopted, in cludes all or any of the submerged lands. The holder of scrip, issued under either law, is then vested with a perfect right to locale it in any county in the Slate where any lands of the de scription 10 which the laws relate are to be found. lam reminded here by some, that this 4th section provides that the 12, 13, 14, 15 and IGth sections ot the Act of 15th of March, are adop ted by the Act of 16th March "so far as the same can be made applicable to the provisions of this Act" act 16 March. This I do not regard as at all militating against my position. I consid er that these sections can be made exactly and most naturally to apply to the latter act. It j will not be denied that the legislature intended j that these Rections should apply to some extent j at least. Yet if those are right who differ with j me, these sections are wholly inapplicable. How I far then do they apply 1 'Fake for instance the j form of this scrip. This form is a paitof the 1 law. It would certainly be nroner in thn .sec II L Stevens, MAINE. M Macdonald, Samuel Mayall, E V Narley, Sam P Benson, I U'ashlitirn, jr., T J D Fuller. MISSISSIPPI. retary to adopt this form for scrip under the last law. There is none other prescribed to him. Yet this scrip measures the rights of the Slate and the purchaser and passes the Great Seal. The form of this scrip is part of these sections, and he is bound to adopt it. It is directly ap plicable. Examine it. On its face it gives the holder the right to locate his scrip upon these lands. So with all the other provisions of these sections in regard to scrip and the rights of its holders. The Legislature well knew tfieir meaning when Ihey incorporated them into and made ihem a part of the act of IGth March. Their meaning is plain, their terms express, and their enactments positive and unequivocal. I am at a loss to see how they can now be emas culated by vague deductions from very indefi nite language. Again, in section 15, which is also a part of the law of this scrip, we find the following pro vision, which is still more explicit upon the question in issue. "That said land scrip shall be assets in the hands of the levee commissioners for levee pur poses only, whs may dispose of the same for cash or labor upon said levees at the minimum of fifty cent per acre, and when so sold or bar tered, the President of the Board of levee com missioners shall endorse the same to his vendee or assignee who shall be authorized to locate the same upon ANY if the swamp lands as set forth in said n arrant, e. Here you will perceive the broadest and most emphatic language is issued 10 define the privil ege of the holders ot this scrip. It, in express terms, clothes iIipiii with a right to locate their scrip on any of the swamp lands in the State and refers to, connects itself with, explains ind strengthens the terms of the warrants or scrip provided for in sec. 12 which precedes it. t he 1th sec. ol the act ol March, lias made these sections to govern, "in all respects scrip issued under it, and you are therefore bound to extend to the holders of scrip under the one law every privilege secured under the provisions of the other. It is not a matter ol inlerence or con struction. It is plain, direct and express enact ment, which can neither be avoided or evaded. Such may not have been the intention of the Legislature. It is greatly to be regretted, then, that they did nut take pains lo express a differ ent intention in a plain and intelligible manner. VV hen the language of a law is plain, we are not permitted 10 resort to construction, or to hunt for an intention in the mind of the law maker, other than that which he has indi cated by the terms be has employed to express nis meaning. 11 is ham many rntinues win on seriously injured if such operation is given lo these laws as I have indicated. Those ag grieved must look to the Legislature. It is but my humble duty lo advise on the legal effect of Statutes when made, and not provide against in jurious effects flowing from them. But it may now be said, this may all he true in regard to the holders of scrip under the Act of loth March, and yet it still does not prove that the holders of scrip under the Act of 15tli March have a right to locate uiirn any lands out of the county to which their scrip was issued. I have purposely considered it in the light I have as it strengthens my position. For if I have proved any thing, it is that by the provis ions of (bis very law of IGth March, the holders of scrip under either law are placed in the same position as to their rights in the location of (heir scrip. This position is plainly and clearly defined in the 12,13, 14, 15, and IGth sections of the law of (he 15th March. Indeed (hesn sections are constituent parts of each law, as far as scrip and the rights of its holders are con cerned. The right (0 loca(e their scrip on "any and all fubmprged lands in the Stale" is ex pressly secured by each to the holders of the same, issued under ihe provisions of either. This plain right is not to be yielded lo a mere inference from the act of 15th March. As I have before said, when the sense of a law is plain, inference and construction end. If ncepsary, the view I have taken of this matter may be strengthened by several consid erations ol a collateral nature. 1 will call your attention to one or more of them. The 18ih section of (he act of 15th March, requires the Secretary of Slate to make an issue ofdiree hundred thousand acres of scrip, and to place the same in the bands of the Treas urer who is authorized to sell it. It (hen pro vides that the scrip (litis issued "shall he pla ced upon the same footing, and be subject to en try in the same manner, as is provided for in the IGth and lGlh sections of this act." Now I ask what did the Legislature intend should be done with this scrip if the unrestrict ed right of location was to be denied lo the hol ders 1 Were they to bn confined to the coun tiei specially named in the act? If so Ihe scrip would be useless to the purchasers from the . State, as in several, as I will presently show, their own apportionment of scrip exceeded ihe land within their borders. The apparent object of this section (18th,) was to replenish the Treasury for certain purposes by a cash sale of scrip, and it is evident such restriction as is contended for on the holders of the scrip would to a great extent have defeated its sale. We may tairly infer, where there is nothing express to forbid it, that such was not the intention of the Legislature. Again, there has been issued to the county of Tunica son e 1 15,000 acres of scrip and yet it was, or should have been, well known to the Legislature (hat there was not more than 20, or 25,000 acres of land in (hat county subject 10 locution. So in DeSoto. There has been some 41,000 acres of scrip issued lo thai counly and yet there is not one single acre of land in tlm county subject to location with this scrip. Did (he Legislature, then intend to restrict the hol ders of scrip in (hese coun(ies to lands within (heir borders 1 If so the whole of the DeSoto and ihe greater part of the Tunica scrip is ut ierly worthless, just bo much bid nk paper. I say thry did not, because they have eipressly said that the holders scrip of the scrip may lo cale it "011 any of the submerged lands in the State." and there is no law which deprives them of this right. I therefore answer you that it is my legal opinion (hat scrip issued under the provision of the Act of 1 5 1 1 1 of March, 1852, can be located upon any Ian Is within 'be provisions of the Act of the lG(h March of the same year. In (he foregoing opinion I may be in error, yet it is the res-ilt of my most deliberate judg ment. The proper tribunals can correct me, if wrong; indeed 1 Ihink a matter of such magni tude and complexity had heller he submitted by the parlies in interest to the courts of Ihe coun try who may make a fin d and authorative expo sition of these Statutes. I am sir, respectfully, D. C. GLENN, Attorney Gen'I. Coppeb vs. Cholera. It is stated that many of the citizens of New Orleans have provided themselves with pieces of copper, about six in ches long and three wide, which they carry about them as a sort of pro(ec(ion against the cholera. They have been induced to this course by an alleged discovery by Dr. Burq, of Paris, who states that in certain streets of that capital, as well as in other cities, while (he cholera pre vailed in almost every other quarter, every cop persmith retained his usual health, and not a cholera case occurred among them. The cop per founderies in Paris number thousands of workmen, scarcely any of whom fell victims to the cholera of 132, or of '49. A Petrified Man. One of Ihe most aston ishing curiosities ever exhibited in our city, says the Baltimore Clipper, can now be seen at Car roll Hall. It is the body of a roan found buri ed six feet deep in guano, on the Island of Ichaboe. It is petrified and turned to a solid mass of Mone, retaining all the minute outline of a perfect specimen of humanity. It has been examined by physicians and scientific men, and pronounced one of the most marvel, loua subjects ever witnessed.
