.Stale. There i no power in Michiciiu
that" .uthori opemng of poll
nnv regiment, baitallion,' battery or com
puny of Michigan soldier, while in the
service of the general government, out
side of the Slate. It is perfectly manifest
that if we were to pas this bill and U
tempt to carry into effect the objects in
tended by it, that we should have to de
pend for its acoomplUbmeut upon the
will of the commander of each post where
might happen to be stationed a company
of Michigan soldiers on the day of the
election ; and when we consider the nu
merous points in all sections of the wide
extended rang of this- great rebellion
where are to be found bodies of Michigan
troops, and diversities both in character
and politics, of the officers in command
of these soldiers, rendering it very doubt
ful whether their assent could, in but a
portion of the cases, be obtuined to the
holding ol such election ; and the variety
of duties in which the numerous regiment
or detachments of Michigan soldiers are
almost sure to be engagou on any given
day, making it impotsiblo to hold any
election in very many cf them upon the
day of our general election, without detri
ment to the service in which, at the time
they are engaged, it must satisfy every one
that but a partial vote of the electors of
this State so engaged in the military ser
vice could be obtained.
Another objection to thia bill U tiie op
portunity it afford, without power of re
dress, for illegal voting. It may be fairly
estimated that at least one third of the ol
diers who hve enlisted from Michigan,
and who are now in the military service of
the United States, are not qualified elec
tors, but either minors or aliens, who have
not taken the preliminary steps necessary
to entitle them to vote in this state. When
the polls are opened in the regiments and
companies, as provided by thu hill, what
power or authority is there to prevent
these persons who are not qualified voters,
troni coming lorwaru anuonering to vote,
and, if objected to, from swearing their
vetes iu T The laws and aulhorites of this
Ute are impotent to prevent tbem, or to
punish them for it. Those menare neith-
er within the jursdiction of Michigan
courts or laws, nor in her service, and Mich.
igan can neither impose the penalties for
illegal voting, nor punish them for the per.
jury iu falsely sweuiiinj in their votes,
neither at the time, nor when they shall
hare returned to this state. The person
to offending, being at the time neither
within the jurisdiction oi Michigan, nor in
its sei vice, could commit no crime against
the state. There being no powor to en
foi ce the election law, tho ballot-boxes
might be stutTttd or destrojed by a disord
erly rabble, either of soldiers or of people,
in the towns through which the commi's-
1 ioner would have to pass on his return to
this state, without any greater penalty be
ing incurred than thai for breach of the
The soldier bus nn reliable means nf be -coining

they are running. Is it, therefore, depriv
ing the toldier of any privlilege, by refuu
ing to extend to him, under such ciicmn
stanees, the right of votiug? Is the right
to vote for a candidate, of whom we know
nothing, a privilege T It is believed (hat,
with the vast majority of the men in the
army, there is no desire to vote for the
greater portion of any of the candidates
which this bill would present before them.
Their minds should be, and it is believed
are, in most c.is?s, intent upon matters of a
very different character from that of til
ing the many local offices at home. 1
As it would be extending to those elec
tors no valuble privilege, neither would it
operate, if the statement above set forth
are in the main correct, as a benefit to the
country ; but might , without any such in
tention on the part of the electors in the
army, work great injury to llie country, by
placing in positions of trust unworthy
and incompetent public officers.
