On Tuesday the Su preme Court adjourned, after a session of 84 days. Before adjourning, the Chief Justice (who will write the opinion to be filed at next term) announced the unanimous decision of the court in answer to the petition for man damus ; to wit, that the attachment of the Speakers signature to an Act of legislation is a vital formality, made mandatory by the wording of the Constitution. Furthermore that the signatures should be affixed during the session of the Legislature, but if not so affixed, the Supreme Court possesses no au thority to require the Speaker to correct their neglect, whether accidental or inten tional. ... The decision, we expect, will excite wide spread comment, pro and con. The question is a difficult one. As it now stands, all that is necessary to vitiate a law, however impor tant, is for one of the speakers to neglect, or refuse to sign ; or for one of the clerks to abstract the bill in such manner that the speakers never have it brought for signa ture. Per contra, it is important that every possible formality shall be thrown around the act of legislation f since we are not with out instances of wrong doing, in consequence of informality. Doubtless the next Legis lature will prescribe new regulations on the subject. 11 a -3fe--?s 2 W 3 VJ5S522S3 - Jftffi jjfffiy 0., THURSDAY, AUGUST 28;. 1879.
