THE NEWS.
Our dispatches from all points of the
.great extended line of battle from Chatta
nooga to Richmond sufficiently well indi
cate activity everywhere, and abundant
promise of stirring news at hand. Gen.
Thomas at Chattanooga is not idle. Gfn.
Burnside will not let Longstreet hare it
nil his own way at Knoxville, and Gen.
Meade is in readiness to see what the rebel
force in his front is made of. It will thun
der all round the horizon shortly.
In another column we rive the argument
of C. Bcekwithßsq., in the Wabash Horse
Railroad case, in the Supreme Court of Il
linois, at Mount Vernon last week.
Hebei dispatches give interesmg, and as
far as we may trust them, important de
tails from several of the theatres of war.
The report of a repulse to our force in Lou
isiana will cause some anxiety, meanwhile
in former precedents, we prefer to believe
the talc exaggerated, and the extent of our
-disaster, If such there be, overstated.

Washington, Nov. 24.—A letter received
hereto day from an officer in Gen. Gilmore's

Boston, Not. 24,—A correspondent of the
Traveller, writing from Folly Island 16 fit
says the loss of tue rebels is said to be from
live to fifteen daily. Our casualties a few
weeks ago were fully equal tj the rebels, but
row that the most effective rebel batteries
arc silenced, our casualties are rare. Fort
Sumter suffers in weak silence, not display
ing even her flag more than hair the time.
The Forts Moultrie and Johnson shoot with
no great vigor, and our men easily dodge
titder cover and avoid danger. Meantime
i>cw iorts are being thrown up on this and
adjacent Ulatds which will shortly com*

{Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.!
Wasuinoton, Xor. 84.
There is bo use, that I can sec, in conceal*
itg the fact that some apprehension is enter,
tained here respecting the position of
Gen. Barnside. He is at some distance from
supplies, or at least, from a region of conn*
try from which they can be procured without
danger of being cut off by roving bands of
the enemy, who may be able to get between
him and Cumberland Gap. The upon
his forces at Lenorl, London Jand Campbell
Station, shows that Longstreet has obtained
possession of the East Tcnncsee Railroad,
cutting him off from Chattanooga. Long,
street’s forces axe set down at from fifteen to
twenty thousand, and a force under Bradley
S. Johnson, on the Virginia side sent from
Lee’s army, is supposed to be (or about to be
co operating with Longstreet.

About all the 9th corps (Burnside'sPotomac

regiments in Kentucky, and an independent,
brigade in the region of the Gap. We shall
stay here probably all winter, and an’ effort
trill be made to bring in all the straggling
portions cf the brigade. Oar hard work dor-
Irg the winter willprobablyrtiewhatgrows out

now. They get only quarter rations of coffee
and sugar, and hardly anything except (poor)
flour and fresh beef. A great deal of long
ing has to be done to get along at all.

FROM SPRINGFIELD.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Spjung field HL, Nor. 21,15C3.
Last night, alter the shooting of Deputy
Marshal Morgan, Marshal Keyes proceeded
out into the country with a detachment of
men and arrested Calvin Kendall and his two
sons, John and William Kendall, the two
last for resisting Deputy Morgan in his at
tempts to arrest the who shot
Morgan. They were brought into town and
lodged in the jalij and this morning had a
hearing before U. 8. Commissioner Adams,
who bound them over in the sum of $15,009
each, to appear at the January term of the
U. S. District Court for the Southern Dis
trict of Illinois. One Taylor, a noted cop
perhead, stood their ball. Fifty-two cop
perheads, who figured in the Scott county
mob have been arrested and are now in close
confinement by the military authorities.
Their opposition has been open, decided
treason to the execution of the law by offi
cers duly constituted to execute it, and noth
leg short ol hanging should be the verdict
against them. The direct connection be
tween the actors in these outrages and the
leading copperheads is marked and positive.
The predictions repeatedly made to this
effect are now folly confirmed. .
Capt Hicks, Provost Marshal of the Jack
sonville district, is here to-night. He informs
me that when he left quiet was beiog restor
ed, and many of the mob had come forward,
delivered up their anus and taken the oath.
They caw we had them, and that fifty-two
had been taken, and they could hold oat no
longer. So ends the scon county war.

WiSHiKOTOif, Not. 24.—Tbo Star ot this
evening will contain the following account of
a btilllatt preliminary movement by Major
General Thomas:
Chattanooga, Not. 23 —Tie recoauols
tine* In force, made by General Thomas, his
bt£n completed In the moat brilliant and suc
cessful manner. The troops employed were
t-'-e divfrioES of Gen- Wood and Sheridan, of
the 4th army corps, under the immediate di
rection. of Gen. Auger. The object of the
movement wee not only to 'ascertain the
enemy, but to occupy and bold
1 noUs in front of our left, half way between
cur lines and Missionary Ridge.
The principal attack was made by Gen. Ha
zen*c> brigade, commanded by him, supported
on tfco frfc by Gen. Willich’s brigade, and on
ite right by the whole division of Sheridan.
Tte entire field was distinctly risible from
and in front of Fort Wood, where Gen. Ka
zan's line cf battle formed. Gsn. Howard's
corps formed ia a solid column as a reserve to
the attacking force, and the field being com
nazdedby the heavy guns of the fort, only
one fieldlbalteiy was taken into action This
wee planted on an elevated knoll, in the cen
ter ct which Gen. Sheridan's line oi battle
was termed, before the order to advance was
glvtp.
The troops moved ont of their position
just before T o'clock p. m,ond reunited in
line for three quarters of an hour, tn fall
view of the enemy. At last, everything be
ing ready* Gen. Granger gave the order to
advance, and Gens. Hazen and Willlch
pushed ont simultaneously. The first shot
was fired at 2 p. m., and in five minutes the
lines cf Gen. Hazen were hotly engaged,
while the artillery of Fort Wood and Gen.
Thomas opened upon the rebel rifle'plts,and
the camps behind the line of lighting.
The practice of our gunners was splendid.
The camps and batteries of the enemy being
about one and three quarter miles distant,
but our fire elicited ho reply, and it was soon
evident that the rebels had no heavy artillery
In that part of their entrenchments.
Our troops rapidly advancing, as If on
parade, occupied the knolls upon which they
were, at twenty minutes past two o'clock.
Teh minutes later, Gen. WiUich, driving
across an open field, carried the rifle pits in
his front, whose occupants fled as they fired
their last volley, and General Sheridan
moving through the forrest that
stretched before him, . drove |ln
the rebel pickets and halted his advance in
obedience to orders on reaching the rifle
pits where the rebel force were awaiting his
attack. It was however the design to re
cover the heights on our left, but jiottoaa
fault the rebel works. •
We have taken about 200 prisoners, moat-
Jr Alabama troops, and have gained a posi
tion of great importance should the rebels
EtiU attempt to hold Chattanooga Valley, as

ETATEXENT OP PACTS.
A hill for an act to incorporate the Wahaah Ball
way Company passed tbe Senate on the 22d day of
January, 1668, and passed tne House on the Bth
Cay of Jose. 1563. The bill was properly enrolled
and duly authenticated by the Speakers of the ’ re
spective Houses, hat there Is no official evidence
upon the Journal of cither House that it was ever
ptetenled to the Governor, as required by the
twenty first section of the fourth article of the
Corstuutlon. On the 6th day of June, 186 V, the
the Senate passed a joint resolution tbit both
Homes of the General Assembly should adjourn
die at 6 o'clock p. m. This resolution was
erst to the House of Representatives the same
day, where it was ammenaed by striking oat cer
tain words In the resolution and Inserting others,
co as to make It a resolution to adjourn ri/.« die
on the S2d day of J use, 1863, at 10 o'clock a. nr. As
amended, the resolution was adopted and returned
io the Sen*tc,asking Its concurrence In the amend
meat. On tbe same day, when tbe resolution as
amended came up for consideration in the Senate,
that body refused to concur io the amendment of
th« House. On the eth d&y of Jane, 1863. and af
ter the action of the House on tne senate resolu
tion, as before elated, the House pissed the follow
ing n solution: _
“tVlnreas, This House desires to reconsider its
action taken this day in amending and adopting
the Senate resolution relative to adjournment;
therefore, reared, that the honorable Senate is
hereby requested to return said resolution as
amended by the House for reconslderatiox”
After the Senate bad refused to concur in the
’ amendment of tbe Hones, the following mes
sage was received in tbe senile:
“Mr. Speaker, 1 am Instructed by the Honse of.
Representatives to Irlorm the Senate, that they
havepaesed the following resolution, viz:
M Whereas, the Sense desires to recede from Us
action taken this day in amending ard adopting
the Senate resolution In relation to adjournment;
therefore, revolted % that the honorable Senate is
hereby requested to return said resolution as
amended by tbe House for reconsideration.”
It is evident that a mistake was made in the
message In reciting the preamble to the Honse res
olution. The words “ recede from” aro not In the
original resolution, and are in the message substi
tuted for the word “rtconsider.'’ Immediately ou
tbe receipt of the above message, the Senate ad,
jonmed. No farther procecd-ngs were had in
either Douse in regard to an adjournment without
day until the prorogation of the Governor. There
was lo quorum In tbe Senate after the Bth of Ja . i
On the 30th of June, 1663, tbe Governor made a
proclamation adjourning the General Assembly
until Saturday preceding tbe first Monday of Jan
ury. 1865. and communicated the same to the two
Houses on the same day.
The journal of the House closes Juno 101h,aud
the journal of tbe Senate closes on the same day,
with the exception of an entry therein In these
words: “Thursday, June 11,1663. Senate met
pursuant to adjournment,” This entry Is not
signed by any one, aod there Is no evidence that It
was made by any authority whatever.
The members of the two houses drew their pay
and dispersed on the 10th day of Jane, 1863, and
no entries of any kind were made In the journals
from that date to the SSdof June, with tbe excep
tion above stated.
• it is alleged, that on the 12th day of Jane, 1503,
the enrolled bdl before mentioned was presented
to the Governor as required by the twenty-first
.section of the fourth article of tha constitution ;
and it appears, that the Governor, not approving
ofthebul.onthelOthof the same month, wrote
and signed, in due form, a message to the Senate,
therein stating bis objections to the bill; and on
the E- aTTlf> da; transmitted said bill and message to
the Lientesant Governor, and exqfficlo Speaker of
the Senate, to be by him presented to the Senate

ihim that the General Asecmbl; was then read; to
Itake a recess, and ask him if he bad any farther

On the 23d and 24tU days of Jane, the two mem

consider It. If, after such reconsideration, a ma
jority of the members elected shall agree-to pass
the bill, it shall be sent, together with tbe objec
tions, to the other house by which it shall likewise
be reconsidered; and if approved by a majority of
the members elected. It shall become a law, not
withstanding the objections of the Governor i but
in all such cases the votes of both houses shall be
dcttimlced by ayes and nays, to be entered on the.
journal of eat-h house respectively. If any hill
shall not be returned by the Governor within ton
days (Sunday rxeepted) after it shall bare been
presented to him, the eame shall be a law, in like
insurer as If be had signed it, unless tbe General
Assembly shall, by their adjournment, prevent ita
utotn ; in which case, tbe said bill shall be return

The constitution makes co provision for tbs au
thentication of bills not approved by the Govern
or, but which areteconsioered and passed bribe
two .boners after tbe retern of such Dills with tbe
Governor’s objections thereto; nor for the authen
tication of bills that become lavs, became they are
not returned to the house In which they originated
by tbe Governor, with bis objections tuereto,
within tbe proper time,. And wnlle the signature
of tbe Governor with words signifying his approv
al tufflcitctlj authenticates as laws such bills as
are approved by him, it will be noticed that there
isroprovlt-lon of the constitution requiring the
Governor to deposit them In the office of the Sec
retary of State. The Inquiry then arises. In what
manner should bills which are not approved by tbe
Governor be authenticated so that they can be read
i« evidcsce,or courts take judicial notice of th-Jin?
I&deptndent of any statute regulating and pro
scribing tbe manner in which such authentication
stall be made, it woold undoubtedly be proper for
thetwo booses of the General Assembly to causa
them to bo authenticated In accordance with tbe
usage and practice of other legislative bodies Is
this country. Cushing. In speaking of bills which
have Ven reconsidered acd passed by a requisite
majority after their veto, s&ya: "there seems to
be no fcood reason why a bill which has been pass
ed In this roamer should not be authenticated by
a certificate there on of the proceedings wPb rela
tion to tbe same in each brancb.elgued by the pro
per authenticating officers thereof respectively,
and deposited at once, withonttfce intervention of
the executive in the place or custody appropriated
for tbe keeping of the laws. But In one eta 4it was
thought necessary by Congress to pass a Joint re
solution that theSeereta-y of the Senate ba direct
ed to present to the Secretary of State the Mil In
question with certified extracts from tno journals
ot theSerate acd Hoose, showing the proceedings
in the twohonscs of Congress respectively on the
same bill, after the e»mo had been retained to the
fiei ate by tbe President with his objections mere
tO*”--Cn>-hing. u 935.
It will be noticed that both houses of tbe Gen.
etai Assembly must be in sessional the time when
tbe authentication should be made. Toe. two
bouses of tbe General Assembly having the power
to cause a bill to be properly antbenticitcd and
deposited in the office of tbe Secretary of State as
a law, their will cannot be defeated unless it is by
tbetr own ncgltct. Each house has the power to
ascertain whither bills passed, and not-approved
by the Goversor, Lave been properly authenti
cated, and if tbe two bonses neglect to have the
proper authentication made It is to be presumed
that such neglect was by design. There is no
power in the government to compel the two
houses to cauee pnch authentication to be made
and it Is enbmlttcd that each bills cannot be read
In evidence as laws, ror can the courts take judi
cial r oticc of them as such, until they are proper
ly authenticated. *
As has been remarked, the Governor when he
approves of abtll is required to sign It. and there
is no constitutional provision requiring Aim to
deposit the same in tbe office of the Secretary of
State; nor does any law passed since the adoption
of the sew constitution require of him that duty,
tint tbe Revised Statutes, Chap. 96, Sac. 7. re
quired that all public acts, laws and resolutions
mat had been or should ba passed by the General
Assembly should be carefully deposited In that
cfficc, and under the old constitution this provi
sion of the statute was held to require th* Gov
ernor to perform the duty of making the deposit.
The new constitution provides that all laws In
force at the time of its adoption not Inconsistent
therewith shall continue in force.
After tie adoption of the new constitution, it
washeld that the duty required of the Governor
before thet time was contained under it. People
v Uatchy 19 111.587,
In like manner It is insisted the duties of tbe
Governor under the old constitution In regard to
bills not approved by tbs council of revision were
continued and are m force. If the doty of the
Governor under the old constitution in regard to
one class of bills was continued onder toe new
one. It would seem difficult to give any substan
tial reason why Ms duties In regard to other classes
of bills are not also continued.
Under the old constitution, the law provided,
[Bcv. Slat chap. 62.]
Sec. S. Whenever a bill which shall have pass
ed both bouses of the General Assembly shall be
)domed by the council of revision, with objec
tions thereto, and upon reconsideration, shall
pass both houses by the constitutional mijority, tl
eball be authenticated as having become a law, by
a certificate thereon, to tbe following effect:
“ This bill having been returned by tbe council of
revision with objections thereto, and after recon
eidt ration, having passed both houses by tbe con
stitutional majority, it has become a law, this
da; of ;* which being signed by the speakers of
tbe senate and of the bouse ot representatives,
respective lv, shall be deemed i sufficient authen
tication thereof; whereupon the bill shall be
presented to the Governor, tobebv him depo
sited with the laws in the office of the Secretary
of State
Sec. 9. Every bill which shall have pissed
both Bouses of the General Assembly, and shill
tot be returned by the council of revision within
un days, having thereby become a law, shall
he auuunltcaleu by the Governor, causing tho
fact to be certified thereon by the Secretary of
State, in the following form: “This bill having
remained with the council of revision ten days,
(Sundays excepted), and the General Assembly
being in session. It has become a law this'day of
Sec. 4 Whenever tbe General Assembly shall,
by ifaeir adjournment before the expiration of ten
days after the passage of any bill, render tbe re
turn of each bill by the council of revision within
that time impracticable, and the same shall cot be
rttnmed on the first day of tbe next meeting of
the General Assembly, and shall thereby become
a law, the fact shall be authenticated in the min
cer provided in ihepreccdlag section.
The object of tbe law was to provide a mo 4c of
authentication of bills passed and not approved
bytheGovernor.anditwili ba seen that consid
erations of public policy imperatively demand
there should oe such an authentic »tlou In order
that tbe people of the State may know whether
teeb bills become laws or not. It la not only nec
essary that the present generation should know
whether tnch bills become laws, bat succeeding
generations should have the same Information.
The present cae# suggests an illustration of the
necessity of such an authentication. Suppose a
Mil to pass both houses and be presented to the
Governor while tbe houses are in session, and
tupposet.be session to continue for tony days
tteipofter. Tbe Governor does not return the bill
and there is no record of tbe time whan tbo same
was presented to him. Now how is tbe evidence
to be preserved ol the time when the bill became
n law ? There is no powerto coerce the Governor
to make a certificate of the time when he recel ved
the bill, or oven to show the bill to any one. How
then are people to know when such bills become
laws or what they are. 11 such bills may be read
in evidence as laws, aud courts are to take jadlclal
notice of them as such, without any authentica
tion of them, a rule of conduct might be pre
scribed and the people have no means whatever
of ascertaining what it is. The courts would be
called upon to administer laws which they have
to powerto inspect and the contents of which
tney are cnabtv »v «B&eruts.- xne lives and liber
ties of citizens might he endangered under laws,
without any knowledge whether they were in ex
istence or not, and public and private rights would
have to be adjudicated upon without gny knowl
edge or means of knowledge of tho laws regulat
ing them. To prevent such fearful consequences,
conrts should firmly adhere to the rule that they
•w ill look only t *an authentic record to ascertain
what laws are in force.
If a question arises whether a bill passed the
two kousia by a constitutional majority, courts
may look to their journals to ascertain that fact;
‘tut courts will never inspect tbe Journals if the
bin has never been properly authenticated as a
law.
HAP TEN DATS ELAPSED,
It. The alternative writ alleges that the bill
was presented to the Governor on the ISlhdayof
June, ISC3. In the computation of tha time given
to the Governor to return the bill with his objec
tions. the day on which it was presented to him
la to be excluded. The 12th day ol June was Fri
day, and it will be perceived that tiro Sundays oc
curred before the tea days allowed tho Governor
elapsed The Governor was therefore entitled to
the whole of the 24th day of Jane for considera
tion of the bill, and the two members of the Sen
ate and font members of the House, calling them
selves the General Assembly, could not deprive
the Governor of his constitutional right to the
whole of that day. Having concluded their delib
erations at 10 o'clock, a. m. on that day, the time
had not then elapsed for the bill to be ;ome a law.
The Governor was therefore right, according to the
relator's own showing, fu not causing the 011 l to
be authenticated as a law.
SECEETABT ONLY TO CSBTI7T TBTO COPIES.
IIL Tbe statute provides “that the Secretary of
State shall, when required by any person or per
sons'so to do, make ont copies of all laws, acts,
resolutions or oiher records appertaining to his
said office, and shall attach thereto his certificate
ucdertbe seal of tho State. 1 * Hole not required
to certify whether tbe bill in his office Is a law or
not. Be Is only to certify that his copy Is a true
and correct one of tho bill, and It is for tbe courts
to judge whether It Is slaw or not. Hence tbe
necessity of a proper official authentication show
ing that tbe bill has become a law.
Tie respondent's successors will be obliged to
give tbe same certificate when required as the re
spondent would be obliged to give were tho bill in
bis office, and bow are they to know whether a bill
has become a law unless It Is properly authentica
ted as haring become one.
The Governor may require tbe Secretory to aa]
thenticatc a bill as having become a law, but tbe
Secretary cannot of his own mere notion do so.
He Is not at liberty to make such a certificate on a
bill unless required to do so by the Governor.
WAS THERE A SIBAGCEEHEKT.
IV, Was there each a disagreement betweenthe
Eonees of the General Assembly as authorized its
adjournment by the Governor t
The 38th section of the Ith article of the Consti
tution provides that “ in case of disagreement be
tween ue two Boases with respect to the time of
adjournment, the Governor shall have power to
adjourn the General Assembly to such time as he
thicks proper: provided it bo not to a period be
yocd the next constitutional mooting of the sa»e. M
It is rot denied that there was a disagreement
with respect to the time of sojournment In one
sense of the word. There was a difference of
opinion formally expressed, and sueh expressed
difference of opinion constituted a disagreement.
Hut It is said that the word disagreement must be
uidcietood in some parliamentary sense of the
word, and in order to constitute a disagreement in
that sense of the word certain parliamentary
usages most be observed. It may be well there
fore to notice those usages which It Is insisted
should have been observed, as it Is admitted that
there was a disagreement unless their observance
was necessary.
J-lrui—lt Is said that notice to the House of the
non.ctDCurrei.ee of the Senate in the amendment
Of the Uopse was one of those usages necessary to
be observed to oosstltutea disagreement. It wou’d
he slngnlar indeed if n formal notice of a fact
It had transpired was necessary co create the ex
istence of. tbe fact itself, and an examination of
tLe julcs of p*rl*amezitaty law will show no such
absurdity to exist. A disagreement Is one tiling,
and a formal notice of such disagreement to be
made some time after itbas taken place is quite
Brother thing. Courtesy may require the notice
to be gives, but the fact exists whether tne cour
tesy is observed or not. Cushing says that notice
by tbe non-coccurrlrg to the other house Is a
ipsturof courtesy, and if not observed the house
to which such notice mfcbt have been sent has no
richt to complain. Cushing, §2392. 1 Black. Com.
- iVcojtcf. It is admitted that the House of llep
mei tutlves could not ask for a committee oi con
ference Jortbe reason that tbe resolution was not
in its votse'slqn. CutMng, $lB,
- ■ -Thiid. The Senate could sot fora com
mittee of ccufeietce until a disagreement had ac
luaßy taken place. The object of a conference is
a and the same clrcutn
-si»toSL l 2?i eq ® l * lle to S» re thoright to ask for a
conference as ara necessary to authorize the Gov
error to aujoutn the- General Assembly. There
must be a parliamentary disagreement before a
coLfeicnco can be asked, and it is only necessary
that there adJsagreemept in that Bcni>e
of the word to' authorhu the Governor to act,'
What then is required hi order to constitute dis
agreement Id a parliamentary sensor
n quires tbat tbe one honio should refuse to con
cur in tie action of the other," •-.CtoWa/?, 3JS, vote.
Fourth* After ttte Senate hadrefu«*ci to coucut
It. the amendment of the House, it was entirely In
tl e discretion of the Senate whether it would ask
fora ermferetee or not. Each house la the sole
judge of tbe order of its own proceedings, and tie
House badno tight co complain of the Seuats for
Lot asking a conference. Even after a conference
Is asked ior. each house Is still the eole judge of
tho otdtr of Its proceedings, and may determine
how far the conference Shall proceed. CUshtnn.

Fifth —No communication from the two houses
to tne Governor was necessary to create a disa
greement between them. Thu Journals of tbe two
Louses fire records open to the Inspection of all
citizens.—CufAlitff, 29i, uc 756.
And they weie published from day to day under
authority of law. which publications are evidence.
Mat. 0/ aSiC.p. 422. Davenport, v; Toung.

Tbe Governor might satisfy himself as to the
. fact of a disagreement in the same manner as any
01 her cltlz. n might ascertain that f«ct,and the Con
stitution does roc require any official totiflcatlou
of thcfact'of disagreement. It only requires the
fart to exist, and It appears the fkci was certified
to tbe Governor by tbe Speaksr of the Senate.
Sixth —The resolution of the House, stating that
it desired to reconsider its action in amending tbe
resolution of ihuSerat", did not reconcile the dis-
tbe two house* It the reso
lution had been returned to tbe House, it could
have taken such, action tijsieoa as it thought prop
er, aid was not obligetTbs concur with the Senses
ot In any manner Tauber consider tbe resolution.
Tbe Senate was nederno legal obligation to ro
torn tbe resolution to tbe House, although it
might Lave done so sa a mutter of courtesy. The
mistake of the messenger of the House, In an
jouncing the House resolution with tbe words
-•recede from,” instead of the word ‘’reconsider,”
cannot alter tfae revolution Itself, and to defermtuo
whattbexesolutionaucpted was, wc must look at
tbe House journal.
The Govercor was to-hear and determine
whether there was a disagreement or not. Evi
dence was laid before him upon that subject. Ho
was to Judge whether the disagreement was to be
npatllamentary oocor not, and whtthcrtbo evi
dence was sufficient to establish the disagreement
required to exiet. Hie judgment cannot be re
vised collaterally.
SID THE GENERAL APSEJIBLT CLOSE ITS SESSION,
V. Laterally the word nojoam slgclfiestocon
tlnuc.butintbis country an adjoa<nment with
out day signifies the conclusion of the session.
Ore qut stloo in the present case is, when dldtbe
tweity-thltd General Assembly, close its session?
Curblrg, too '
Pint.—According tc parllamentsry law, no
question could be put without aquorum; noteven
. that of an adjournment from day to day. Cushing.
147.825. 5517. ■
The only way In which leas than a quorumof a
booy L'ovorrvuby parliamentary rules - can con
tinue the body in session, is for the Speaker or
Clerk to take tbe chair and declare the body ad
journed until tbe next legislative day without
patting the qucslion; and tbo only evidence of Its
continuance in session Is the Journal. Tbo Jour
nal is an official record, like tbe record of a court,
and from italono is it to be determined whether
the body was la session or not. Thn record Is tbo
only evidence of a fact to be proven by It, acd
woere the record is sfle-nt it Is considered that
the fact does not exist because there is no evi
dent 0 by wblcb it can b« proven.
Second—ln this State, power isgraated to leas
tbanaqnotnmof each house of too General As
sembly to adjourn from day to day on question
and toeend forabeex-t members. Xa other res
pects less than n quorum of the two houses ar%
.governed by parliamentary ralas While the con
stitution grants to lea* thun a quorum tbe power
to perpetuate the sessions of the Houses, it pre
scribes the mode la which the power shall be ex
ercised and the evidence by which It Is to be
known whothcr It was done or not.
The oaly. mode la which lessthan a quorum of
either bomccancontinue its existence is by an
adjournment from dav today aud preserving the
evidence of such adjournments on the journal.
Now It appears by a Joint resolution tint both
houses were without a quorum on the 10th of
June, after the prorogation of ths Governor, and
as th»re was by those members
ot the House who were present until the next dsy,
-its tetaion ended.* Those members of the Senate
who were present adjourned until the next day.
Bat tb* Senate could not continue Its cessions
from day to day after the session of the House had
closed—Const., Article 3, $ 19,
The only mod* 1c which a quorum of an Assem
bly can dontlnue its sessions from day to day is to
meet and transact some business, where toe-els
a standing order, fixing the time of assembling at
a particular boar on each day, and an adjourn
ment takes place without naming the time to
which the Assembly u3Jon»ned the sitting is re
sumed at the stutediiourtbe next day; In the ab
bcrce of any such rule, upon adjournment the Ae
ft robly stands adjourned until too next slttiaeday
or Indefinitely —Curbing, SB6B.
ArsemVycohtloueaits session from
f om daytodiy It maybe presumed that the ses*
sionof the enedry continued until the sessiou of
tbenextoay,but where there is no sessiou on
tie next legislative day the presumption, In the
absence cf a formal adjournment on the record,
is tbst the session ended on the day on which the
Asw robly teased to transact buriness.—Cushing,
S SGO.
Ingenious theories are advanced by the counsel
for the relator, to shew that there cannot be a
close of a session by the action of the two houses
without a formal adjournment entered on the
journals. It Is insisted, that tho two houses, re
rpcctivdy, cannot do Indirectly that which they
cannot do directly. As, for example, neither
bouse can constitutionally adjourn without day
■ n Ithont the concumnco of the other. Therefore
r.eltheris adjourned without such concurrence.
The argument is, that A cannot legally
kill B, ■ and although A has in fact
killed B, yet B, in contemplation of law, is not
dead, because A could not legally kill him. It is
claimed, that all of the members of the two bone-re
may entirely abandon all legislative proceedings,
ana such abandonment continue during the whole
legislative term of the members, and the leghld
tme still remain in session for want of a for
ual joint resolution, of adjournment. A* a
ntceps«jy consequence from this proposition,
li follows, that Ices than a quorum can
ntver dose a session. They have no power to
disagree, so that the Governor can adjourn them;
i o power to adopt a joint resolution adjourning
; Inc die, or to a given time, aud no power what
ever io stop theexistenccof the Assembly. Pow
er is eupussiy granted to less than a quorum to
preserve the existence oi the Assembly by ad
journments from day to dav; and why. was this
power granted, if its continued exigence was in
evitable ftom a law of Its nature? It la claimed,
tlat when on assembly Is once shown to have been
in reseion, ench session continues in legal con
templation until it is shown that It was ended in
tome legal manner Courts will take Judicial no
tlce, tost the progression of time Is marked by
tbe epochs of days, . Parliamentary rules recog
nize Ibis division of time. An Assembly by nue
may fix the time of the commencement of a legis
lative day, but where no t [ms Is fixed, tbe leglala
t ire day commences with tbe natural day. Orders
for a paxticnl ar day expire with the termination
of the legislative day.—CVitoo $ 560,
So a session of a particular day expires with
the expiration of tQat period of time, whore there
is no formal adjournment. During the Bitting of
a day, there may be a recess not entered on tbe
jouital- Tbe session of tho day commences at
it* natural commencement, or nr somo time fixed
by ruin, as the commencement of tbe legislative
day. apd where there la no adjournment, it ends
by too temdnatlon of the natural or iegUkilye
day. Thu gallon of a legislative day does not
continue after the expiration of that time.— Cush’
tftff, § 860. •
The session of a succeeding day is evidenced in
in tbe appropriate manner, and thus a continuous
session horn day to cay is evidenced; the one ses
sion continuing until tbe next day, when it ap
pears that another seeslon commenced. *ALcgfs
iilme’s existence solely by presumption is a new
idea. The law for wleo purposes hns prescribed
a n odel by which certain facto may be evidenced,
and from considerations of public policy allows no
proof to establish them, unless It lemadelntho
modewhichtliclawprescrlbes. ThoUwrequires
a record to be kept of the proceedings of the two
bouses of tho General Assembly If either house
meets, arccoid is to be made of that fact- If
either boose transacts any business, a record
is to be made of it, and the only evidence of &
meeting, or that any business was transacted, is
tbe record In fact, the bouses nay have met and
transacted business, but if the journals arc silent,
thesefacts cannot be shown. In contemplation
of law the facts do not exist because there is no
evidence by which they can be shown. The record
is the only evidence of facts to be shown by. it,
aud where tbe record is silent, it Is conclusive evi
dence that tbe facts alleged do cot exist. There
can be no p-esomptlon that anything was done,
unless it is shown by the record to have been
done.—l GreenL Erid., f 30.
The presumption sought to be established by
tbe relator is one of fact, and all presumptions of
1 but nature may be rebutted by,parol evldeade.
Thus while the relatoraska the court to hold that
the journals arc the only evidence of what was
done, he seeks to establish a presumption, the ef
fect ot which, wonld bo to allow parol evidence to
contradict it, and thus defeat tbe rule for which he
contends, and make the existence of public laws
depend upon parol evidence and the verdicts of
juries. *•
The constitution requires tbit the two houses
of the General Assembly shall kect a journal of
their proceedings. It may be admitted that this
srevision5 revision la in some respects direcory, and that
i all cases where it is directory, it need not ap
pear affirmatively that the provislonwas complied
with.—2s UL 181. i
But in regard to other legislative acts, the con
stitution is Imperative, and tbe act li not valid if
• the constitution Is not complied witn— Spangler
v,Jaco4y»l4llL-2&T •
A record ianecesssry to ehowthtt a quorum

Its being complied with, the validity of tho com
mencement of the session depends. So the pro
vision must be held imperative In i?ga:dto the
