it made, its accompluthmeot is rendered difficult,
if not impossible, from the followmgomnrteratioo.
It is well known that parties in that State are tho
roughly organized so much so, that it is known
to what party almost every individual belongs; and
for one, I repudiate the idea that the mere fact
of proving an illegal vote, should be allowed
to operate in favor of the part to which the indi
vidual giving it, belong, la other words, the
mere proving that an illegal voter voted, must ;
leave a presumption that be voted for the party to
which he belongs. However much, in tome res
pects, ao overweening devotion to party is to be
deprecated, the spirit of pirty has, in many, res
pects, a beneficial tendency and among them
that k excites wstcbfuloeas, and acta aa a guard
against attempted frands, should soch be attempted,
in the conducting of an election. V

But it may be said that the parties should have
been ready fur trial. This be admitted, was a
strong argument, and in most cases where due no
tice of oonteet had been given, would be regarded
by htm asrondoww. (hit this was btotj uuutir-
at case.' Neither party admit that they are the
eontrstnrs; and all know that neither was the sit-,
mg members. This was an obstacle to timely
preparation; and the gentlemen who aked an ex
tension of time for the procurement of additional
testimony, alledged that it waa not practicable for
tbem to be prepared when Ibis case was token up.
Taking this circumstance in eonnectmn with (he
fact that there ia no regulation on tho pari of Con. "
rest for taking testimony in contested eloctiuns,
and that there waa no law in Now Jersey at that
lime applicable to this case, the committee deter
mined to postpone the decision of the question of

ploying tho interval in the preparation of Ibeir tes

right to report the beta, with its opintorrv thereon,
