on thse aseed Monday after their election
- wua ofefy promulgated, etc.," whereas
the Legislature, the subject of the 1-9tt
article, was to hold its first session on the
third Monday, without proviso or condition.
Now, if the "General Assembly " of this
article was intended to be included in the
epression of the 158th Art., "all civil of.
e.s theu elected, etc.," why incorporate the
artile 19, at all? any further than to my
wheb these civil offocers of the General As
sembly should meet?
If the expression "all civil oficers." meant
Legislators, why was a diffrrence in the
time of their induction into office stipulated?
Why were the former to enter upon the
discharge of their duties on the second Mon
day after their election, etc., and the latter
on the third Monday, unonuditionally!
If the terms " all civil oaeer,," included
the asmabers of the Legislature, then I main
tai that the General Asse.bly entered
upon the discharge of their duties on the
s end Monday also.
But they are not civil cticero within the
meaning of the Constitution, if tried by any
of the tests. They receive no commissiona.
they give no bond. It is true they take an
oath; al do arbitrators, amicable compoud.
ea appraisers, witnesses and others. Bet
who, on this account, will say these are civil
eieers, eto?
Again, as Legislators, no one of the con
servatery writs known to our law can reach
them in the performance of the duties of
their office, and yet they reach all the other
civil ofcers, according to their functions.
How would a lawyer go about enjoining
them as tesgistators? A mt aiMS I
not reach them. nor would a writ of prdhibi
tion, eertiorai, nor quo warranto. They are
priviliged from arrest during their attmid
ance upon the sessions of their respective
Iusess, umless for treaseo, felony en bre
of the peace.
But again; the framers of the Constitution
themselves evidently intended to make s
distiuction between them and civil aoicers.
for in atrtiole 41, the Constitution says, "no
Senator or Representative shall be appoint
ed to any civil ocoe, created during his
term of office, sooner than one year there
Representatives are ohoeen for two years.
and their election is to take place on the first
Monday of November every two years.
Arts. 16 and 17.
These articles had reference -to the per
manent State Government ordained by the
Constitution. If it did not It provided for
an impossibility. The General Assembly
eleqtcd on the 17th and 18th of April could
exist two ears in darn..tiu. kt
doqped to exercise its functions two years
and a half.
The irst was probable, the latter is Con
stitutiodally impossible.
If the Legislature elected in April, 1868
was not fwacts oEfcio on the first Monday el
November following, it cannot be until the
Mrst Monday of November A. D. 1870. Be
pause, if it was intended that it should last
two years. as is provided for the ofciail ex.
stenoo of Representative, by Art. 16, them
1tstwoyears of existence will not terminate
natil the 18th day of April, 1870.
As we ceemot hold an election for menm.
bars of the General Assembly befoet the
let Monday of November, and as there can
no interregnum, it follows that the pres
distinguished body most survive two
oears and a half in spite of the express let
er of the Constitution to the contrary not

Now it is very certaOu t t at the tisPe of
the election there was no eivil governiment,
It is also plain enoegh, that when the
General Assembly was convoeni es k!ti'

It was made a sie qua son, by Vong.ns,
that the Sttaes in ssbellion, *huld, by theis
Legislat.eas, appon e the 4*

and that their Constitution should be scoepg

The Legislature was convened ond open
ed by orders fro~ Washington, sddresed to
Lieutenant Gtoverner Osar J. Denm. We
controlled the whole tblag; and so far did be
ignore the Constitution of the S.lte, by vir
tue of which that Legislature was couvened,
that, he ignored the seiciemay of she eath
of ofiSe therein presaribed, sad aleqidd
members el'et to take asJ subshLebe the
oath prescribed by Congress and know&,a
the iron cld oath. This was done on the
ground that we then had Is government
under the Constitution.
Thatbody then was not the Legislajure
of the civil govermatelt; it was called to
ratify the14th amedmen s, and to esUabish

the asasal arms of dte Comekuetieonal Legis
h lates, were specisaly autrelasd to be hll
-- ip onesolidated term of one bhnded and
: twenty days.
SWhat Legislature was this! The article 9
is tolerably explieit in declaring that "noses.
a slon shall extend beyond the period of silty
I days, to date from its commencement, etc.;
b but the Legslaturo that shall eonvene after
the adoption of this Constitutioen (and we
may add after its approval by Congress, be
Soases atil approved it was not a Contlte
Stits) may eeatiaue in session for one bha.
e ded and tweaty days." So that in realty
Stas whole session-life, instead of beiag di
,vided, as all subsequent Legislatues are,
v unash ordinary circumstanes, into two ses
, sloms of sixty days each, was consilidated
into one session of one hundred and twenty
j days. This, then, was the term ofits etist
ease, as Art. 17 declares that "Representa
tires shall be chosen on the first Monday of
Miemmabe, every twoyears."
The two anual sessiones of the Legiale
tame oembined, gin to the Xspresentetiw.
r bet one hundread d-twenty days within
which they can legislate, unless ooivemde
for special purposes by the Governor. (See
Art. 61.) ad interim.
But the circumstances authorizing the Gov
error to convene the Legislature must be
e.-raordimsry. So that the Legislature
eieeted en the 17th and 10th of April, A. D.
188N. bad, under the provision of the Co.
sitotiou above quoted, as many days of
power to legislate as any other, or a the
one that should have been elected on theira
Monday of November of that year. They
received their full quantum of the State
money in the form of per diem, eto., and
should be satified.
We*trust the Governor will redaeet upop
this Objelt; and if he finds anything in the
fenespgisg heleetioes to satisf his mind as
te the fee that the the Legislature of 1-t was
isates t#ei on the ltt day of November of
that year, that he will in due time order
election in accordamee with the evidint
meaning of the Constitution. The people
will appreelate it and sustain himn l it.
One other thought, and we have dapa.
Constitutional rules must be regarded in the
light of limitations upon the power to be ex
ercised, and it is not prudent or wise to make
them vary to suit abstract theories. If
Constitutional provision is to be carried o
at all such as the 10th and 17th articles,
most be regarded and obeyed as premp.oc
in ise aturs.
Tosy that it is only directory, is to say
that it may or may not be obeyed; in which
*.ut Zhu tlaruament as a whole, would be
thrown into confusion, sad cease to provide
limits for legislative authority, or executive
These articles of the C'onstitution are
mandatory. and should be enfoseed to the
letter; 'for Constitutions do not usually
ineartake to prescrion seere rsler of pro
seeding, asCept when such rules are lookee
upon a esstl to the thing to be daie.
It establisesthese fuadamems e esiasses.
and Osesthess unvarying rules by whieh all
