Taxation is a sacred light, IJ the ex- istence of government but there are 1 mitations upon that right,'slnmld be respi cted and observed by the taxing authority.

The people should not be suajected to tbe burden of taxation upon any other principle. As I do not consider an injunction necessary at this time, I shall not. proceed to ex mine the merits of tbe bill, but defer all furthe consider- ation thereof, until the hearing upon 'emurrer, plea, or answer. The Connseiof these parties having t rgued ths point, in regard to the iiutnonty of the City Council to appoint assessors, and of Ih, validity of the assessment by those assessors and bav- jd of such power of appointments, it would je risking too much to affirm that a law may be so construed as to permit the Council to do what the Legislative authority expressly declares they shall not-do. If the legislature had merely repealed the power of appointment, then it uould exist, if any'where, in the people to e'.ect, and not in the Council, a select body, to appoint. But the power to elect was confeired upon the People and afterwards taken away by express public statute, and not restored to the Common Council or any other authority. This- distinction may exist, that when an officer ia authorized by the constitution or lana to be elected or appointed, the Court will not enquire" into the legality ol his appointment or election in a collateial issue; but the Court might in such issue, look into the constitution and laws for the authority forsuch appointment or of on officer of a cor- poration.
