before Judge .B.Arnts, who delivered
ln.the 25th Section-of the 9th Article of
our State Constitntion, We find the doctrine,
that "Emigration - front - the State, shall not

it a Subject about which the executive, and

_• This - punishment, if- not forbidden, is

The character of this iastituteis stihstan- ,
