We have heretofore exposed the fallacy I
of tho fust position by reference to the
words of tho Constitution, and to the un
broken precedents of seventy years. In
addition we will present a test which will
so clearly expose the unwanantable and
uncomtilutionid nature of the claim that
no ono, however prejudiced, may mistake
or misunderstand it..
By the XXIII section, Article lt, of j
tho Constitution of Ibis State, it is provi
ded that all bills passerby the Legisla
ture and presented to the Governor for
his signature, within ten days of the
final adjournment, shall become las with

In lioo Ihe Legislature met on the second
day of January. Tho conlcsl for Speaker
was prolonged until tho fifth, when llio
Hon. Wm. . M. Ilioster, of Berks eounty,
was elected. Upon the sixth. fourth
day after their meeeting, the Governor or
clear majority, they Hill pen-Mod in their
couiso or ii'urj.ation. In the earlier days
of the session, by a unanimous vote, and
by participating in twelve ballots, they ad
mitted that it was Iheir sworn duly lo
pioeecd lo the election of Speaker. When
they had secured the power to do so, then,
in violation of the Constitution, of preee
or law, and of their own ad missions, they
for ten days persisted in thoir revolution
ary conduct. But from the COth of Feb
ruary, the day when Dr. St. Uair was
sworn as Senator from the. Twenty-first
Dhit-net, until this ?th day of March, the
undersigned have resisted as before, by all
means in their power, every attempt on
