In tho administralion of pretcnlio jutiro, the

AII llicn principlcs of ihconly prcvcntive juslicn

tho Alicn act. Tho ground of suspicion is to bo

llut, in tho last place, it can neor bo admittcd,
that thu removal pf nliciu, nuthnriscd by thc act,
is lo be considcrcd, not ns puiiMiincnt for an of

Ono artuiicnt ollcrcd in justilicatiou of lliis pow
cr oxerciscd ocr nlicns, is, lliat llio nduihsion of
llium inlo iho romilry bcing of f.ivor not of right,
thc f.ior is at all timcs rincahlr.
Tu this nrgiimcnt it mighl bc niisncrcd, that al
lowing llio tiulli of thu iiifi'HMici', it would hu lio

occur, wliulhcr thc ('oiiililulion li.nl c.ilcd tho dis
