Virsimutoratgr, June 7, 1869.
The election for Collector, Register,
Sitiveydr and Members of Connell took
place to-day. Major Richards, Superio.
tendent of the Pollee. had taken the pre
caution. to secure to every voter the ex
ercise of his franchise. and 'at the same _
time to preserve the peace at the polls.
Restaurants and other drinking places
were closed by the same authority. Long
before daybreak crowds, principally col
ored 'men, gathered at the polls and
formed in line for voting, although this
did not commence until seven o'clock.
There was throughout the city, during
the day great excitement at the respee
tire precincts. Towards noon a serious
disturbance occurred, the following con.
densed account of whiCh is taken from
the Star: •
In the Sixth ward, between ten
and twelve, a dispute took place be
tsieeti colored men in the vicinity of first
precinct, corner Ninth street hest andi
street. Before, however, wry conflict had
occurred g the disputing parties got some
distance off, and when they reached
Twelfth Street East there was a fight.
The police immediately went to the
scene, When the parties to the tight rap.
One of them, Geo. Poole, colored, was
mph:tired. The others. escaped. Poole
wades desperate resistance, and In the
melee, Officer Greene calling for assist
ance' Christopher 13ohloyer rushed in 1
and the negro it once attacked aim.
Officer Greene, fa the attempt to save
Bohloyer ftom being -killed, was cow
l:veiled to let Poole escape. "Re- ccsnagen

he had been badly beaten said received

With this exception, matters were
quite orderly. - The Clttisins tickets were
presented in plain white papers, and the
Republicans, as in all-wards, were white
faced with blue glazed backs. It having
been noised around that everytnan em
ployed in the Navy :Yard who voted the
Citizens ticket would be spotted. the
Citizens' party early this morning coca
trienwd passing tickets, and finally,
about eleven o'clock, there was a large
number of Citizens tickets in circula
tion wit h . blue backs and similar in site
and appearance to t heßepu Nicer' tickets.
Many of the colored men in this manner ,
voted the' 'Citizens ticket Ignorantly. not
only in the Sixth, but in other wards.
Between one and two o'clock exagger.
atedreportis were afloat as to election
riots In the SCitanth ward, and the at
tempt to V' nue parties from the police.
They originated thus: About LBO Ar
thur Taylor. Randolph Cole alias
. Blue
akin, and Paul Girsey, engaged in a
tight with sticks, scones anti other mis
siles occasioned by something said about
a woman in Fighting alley. and soon, the,
noise being heard . at the polls a large'
crowd was attracted. The police from
the nearest precinct promptly repaired
to the spot, when an attempt was made
to escape. Pistols being fired- increased
the crowd largely. The officers *greeted
the parties am% with some difficulty con
veyed them to the station house, and the
crowd io the alley was cleared by a squad
of mounted men. The disturbance had
nothing to do with the voting.
About one o'clock Julius Wallace,
colored, and a friend wereloal-ing the
polls, near the corner of Thirteenth and
M. streets, In the Second ,ward. Wallace
was stopped and questioned as to having
stretched the. natne of Chase, the regu
lar Republican nominee for Alderman,
and he, facet., Borne words,
was attacked
ny &crowd, lwho knocked him out of his
buggy aud beat him. The police imme
diately entered the crowd and with
cuity replaced . Wallace in: his buggy.
Officers O'Hare,' Jarboe i and Bresnahan
were roughlylandled and bruised with
atones; but they, with otherit of the force,
altqu ad of mounted men having arrived
on the ground, sucoetided in putting
down the riot, WallacWAnd his friend
going off in the buggy at a rapid gait amid
a:shower of stones. '
About the same time Tim Rogers was
_attacked with stones &c., and badly
beaten before the crowd could be driven
off. His offense was he ; had voted the
Citizens ticket.

The Quorum Queetion In the Leghdatare
—Decision by the eiste Attorney
General. . . .
(By Tel( grape to the Pitteperso Eiazeste.l
ItunanArowe, June7,LrAttorney Gen
eral Williamson to-day, delivered. an
opinion :on the constitutionality of the
specific appr opriation l bill, which was .
passed by the House at the close of the
m Maalontaftes the rergnation of the
Demoe triemberst the
body had official notice of but
the fact. The
opinion is delivered in response to a 're
the allowance claims provided for by
the bill. He first proceeds oil the assump.
Son that as no irregularity . appears on
the face of the act, or of the proceedings
affecting it, the Courts will not presume
against ,' its validity. Second. How
ever, admitting that the Courts will
take notice of any alleged irreg
ularity, I and allow proof of the
proceedigs to show that quorum
Is not si a ty-seven members, but two
thirde of. a variable number, which in no
session remains the same throughout.
The Coru4itution says the House of Rep
resentatives may consist of one hundred
and the Senate of fifty members. The
law of 11867, apportioning Senators
and ' Representatives, supplies the
number, ,' the former one hundred
and the latter tifty. In considering
the question as to wnatconiditiates a quo
rum of a body of corporators, the Courts
have made a distinction between a defin
ite number of persons and an Indefinite
number. 1 In the latter case a malcirity of
any number• of those present may act,
and that action - will bind the 'body.
In the abSence of any organic rules, the
common law rule obtains, and gives to
the majority power to act and bind the
minority,' But In this- ease the organic
law of the State requires •Awo-thirda of
each Houk, to constitute a quorum. It
is not 'to be presumed the wise
men who !'framed our Constitution''
intended t,
to make that instrument
so technicalthat its requirements
could' not • be complied with,' and
the slightest deviation from the
rules therein laid down should viti
ate and destroy the most useful as well
as the most solemn legislation, It Is not
to be inferred that they intended; to so
frame that instrument as to plaCe the
whole,Legis/ative powers of the State at i
the will . and pleasure of a few
men. It' is now insisted that in
the use .of the wards "twothirds
of each House," the framers of the Con
stitution meant and Intended ea say "two
thirds of the members as fixed by law,"
or "two-thirds of the members elected'.'
should constitute a quorum. It is a fief;
tielent answer to tht, construction to say,
If they had so intended they would have ;
so so written it,for by use of the worn, to wit: :
"elected," the entire sense and meaning
of the section would have been changed:
With that 'view, a House eoindstingpf one.

anoivin point of fact that the Hoene is
rarely If ever full; -that its. membership ; 1
-is constantly changing by deaths: and
resignations. In the case under consid-
oration-forty-two membersrmigned their
offices as Representatives, thus redu
the House to fi ft y-eight memberti.
This - they had a legal right t 6 do,
but they could not and did not thereby
destroy the legislative power of that
branch of the Legislature, for the fifty-
eight meMbers still constituted the
House in its constitutional sense,, and re
tained all the power, necessary to the .
legislation of the country. The most
natural and genuine , method of elt
pounding 'the section requiring "two-.
thirds of each /louse" Ao constitute
a . quorum,!"_ is to compare -it with
other seething in the same inatrunient,
thus finding out the sense of this clitiise
by the words or obvious intent of others,
for one of the .most common rules of
dont/traction allows reference to be made
to sabeequent sections in order to ex
plain a previous clause of which the
meaning is doubtful. By this reference
to other seetiona of the Constitution it
will be observed "that the words "Weill
berm elected'' are - need but four times in
the entire instrument, once in connection
with the Ipower to pass bills and
joint resolutions, again in , the section
