Payne vs Moore induce delay, their assent is to be pre- sumed, and is ever afterward binding, unless their dissent shall be constitu- tionally expressed at their first session after the passage of the bill into a law. They may by formal resolution de- clare the question of assent or dissent to be undecided and postponed, and yet, in opposition to their express dec- laration to the contrary, their assent is to be implied. Cases innumerable might be cited to manifest the irrationality of such an inference. Let one or two in addition popular branch of the Legislature may express-the dis- sent by a unanimous vote, and its reso- lution may be defeated by the vote of the Senate; and yet the assent is to be implied. Both branches of the Legisla- tuie rnay concur in a resolution of de- cided dissent, and yet the Governor may exert the veto power conferred on him by the State Constitution, and their legislative action be defeated; and yet the assent of the legislative authority is implied, and the Directors of this con- templated institution are authorized to establish a branch or branches in such State, whenever they may find it1 con- ducive to the interst of the stockhol- ders to do so; and having onee estab- lished it, they can, under no circumstan- ces, with draw it, except by an act of Congress. The State may afterward protest against any such its authority is gone. Its assent is im- plied by its failure or inability to act at its first session, and its voice can never after ward be heaid. To inferences so violent, and, as they seem to mer irra- tional, I cannot yield my consent. No court of justice would or could sanction them, without reversing all that is es- tablished in judicial proceedings, by in- troducing presumptions at variance to the fact, and inferences at expense of reason, A State to a condition of duress would be presumed Co as an individual manacled and imprisoned might be presumed to be ia the enjoy- ment of freedom. Far better to say to the State holdly and gress wills, and submission is deman- ded. It may be said that the directors may not establish branches under such cir- cumstances; but this is a question of power, and this bill invests them with full power to do so. If the Legislature of New1 York or Pennsylvania, or any other State, should ba found in such condition as I have supposed, coifld there be any security furnished against such a step on the part ofthe directors7 Nay, is it not fairly to be presumed that this proviso was introduced for the sole purpose of meeting the contingency re- ferred to? Why else should it have been introduced? And I would submit to the Senate whether it can be believed, that any State would be likely to sit quietly down under such a state of things? In a great measure of public interest, their panotisoi teay be successfully appeal to but to infer their assent from cirum- stances at war with such inference, I cannot but, regard as calculated to ex- ate a feeling at fatal emnity with the peace and harmoajbof must therefore'regard setting the power to tfe to establish offices of discount State, not only without its awwt, and so regarding it I sanction it j principles, the right in Congress to prescribe to aajr State, implies a superiority of power and control, deprives the trmaeectkw of all pretence to conpact between and terminates, aa we have seen, in the total abrogation otfreedqro ani-action on the part of the Bui- the State may expresftj aftar i solemn form of. kythjriea. tu which may from (True to time there be in fuil view of its- own in- terest, wnieh can- be separated from the wise and of this gorannpent; and yet Congress may, by virtue of the proviso, over- rule its law, and upon which to such State, will appear to rest on a constructive necessity and propriety, and nothing more.

A VICTIM TO On the shore ofthe lake, seven miles west of this, in Portland, the attention of the traveller would bje arrested by Urn appearance of a well finished, neat and commodious d weiung.tue appurtenance of a well cultivated, goed farm, indicating the abode of taste, in- dustry and happiness. Do you stop to quaff the cooling water or to enjoy a- lounge under the pleasant piazza, pro- tected from the scorching sun by a beautiful grove, ki vain do you. lutrrv for the domestic song, linger for the welcome of hospitality. Silence and solitude reign there. It is the hour of busy labor; you lookaj-rotmd, at a dis- tance you discover a man toiling in the field alone, and he is th a goodly pattern of a invites you to a confer- ence, you become interested in his his- tells you he was the sou of a sterner climate, cradled on the sea- laah'd banks of Nova Scotia.

Here he continued m all the enjoyment consequent upon a virtuous life, pos- sessed ofthe esteem confidence of his-neighbors, of a competence of this- world's goods, his domestic relations- were happy, so, until within about two years since.

The golden Bible and the 'revela- tions' of Joe Smith bid them prepare to journey to the 'promised land.' The husband and father interposed, but rea- son and kind persuasion where una- vailing. The pictured scenes of homer were but the gloom of hlght, compared with bright visions ofthe Mormon- 'heaven upon earth.' And Mornionwn> required the sacrifice of domestic bliss, a severance ofthe connubial tie, of filial bonds. And these were not enough to satisfy the demands ofthe strange God; pecuniary tribute was exacted to the- amount of all the peisonat property, of the man already bereft of wife and chil- dren. and hopeless, he yield- ed to the demandr and besides hor- ses and the cattle of the field, he literally emptied his house'to satiate thfr cupidi- ty of this other Juggernaut.
