There is a wide contrast, sir, between tho powers delegated by tha onoact and thoso delegated by tho other. Why were the word 'or vacancy otherwise" used, unless discretion ary power, unless plonary power, was given ths Governor to decide upon such vacancy ? Whuclso could decide? Tho very fact of those words being used necessarily implies that tho Governor is to decide in this matter.

If I am governed by decisions, they shall ho decisions given j in ra imilai io tins. Having, as i be lieve, substantiated the several points t have i made, 1 will hero submit a few questions. i Will you admit that tho organic act einpow- j ers the Governor to prescribe a form of re- I turns, or will you violate tho English Ian nuapc? If ho has this power and tho re turns aro not mada according to form-ifi they show no persons legally elected must he regard them as true, ns pn per returns ? j 11 llicy snow no legal election, is mere noi n vacancy?

But it is further claimed that when this II ouso is legally organized, it can legislate upon any subject not incompitiblo with the Constitution of Iho United States, or tho or ganic act j nnd that all nuch nets nro bind ing, mid that theicforo this House has the ilT. I claim that, annulling Hie May election, and thereby ousting members then legally elected and duly declared so, would bo an act conflicting with tho organic net , for in j pjssieg that net, this House exercises pow- trs delegated to tho Governor.

The committee report that they went be hind tho .May ilection, and found the poll book of a prior cloction, nnd that there they find somo live hundred majority fur my com petitor. Do they find fivo hundred majority of legal votes recorded ? Du llicy find ono le"al voto recorded according to the returns? No, sir, not one I Do they not find also re corded several offidavits, swearing that near ly six hundred illegal votes were cast ; or, votes from non-residents? Such ntlidavits nic on file, sir. Tins committee have nut respected thoso affidavits. And I, by the voto about to bo taken, shall bo cut of' from the privilege of bringing evidence to sub stantiate the allegation or facta Bet forth in thoe affidavits. But, sir, I claun this right. This House has no right to tako it from mo, admitting that lliey havo a right to examinu into this elect.on. If I am denied It, I am i1piiil.i1 it 111 violation of iustice; in violation of law. I hive asked this right I now nski it again. But it appears that my competitor has a certificate of election from two ot tlio Judges of election; but does that doclaru that legal votes had been cast? No, sir. But what power had tho Judges of election to declare n member elected ? Had lliey any given by tho organcic act? None. Did Iho Govern or deiecalo to them that power ? Could lie delegate that power? No, sir, he did not ; ho could not. Hence such a certificate is no mora than so much blnnk paper. My competitor, nnd others with him, came here becauso residents nl another Stale, caino to our polls nnd voted for them. They came here as representatives of imother Stale. This House has nothing to du with iheui. Admit them, nnd what isUono? Why, sir, men will havo been admitted who havo no right here. Tins legislature will uu longer bo a legal legislature. An important step is to bo taken. Tho most important vole ever to bo taken in llix House will bo taken beforotlns day's sunxet.
