The Constitution of Mississippi, as if designed
to prouct the people against the profligate and
iocenstdecateact f ita represenlatifes, has en-
grafted upon il the following clause i
No law shall ever be pa:d, to raia a loan of

, In 1837 the Union Bank bill passed, and thia
bill. was approved by a subsequent legislature on
the 6tb of Feb., 1838.
This law previded'for a bank with a capital of
fifteen million five hundted-thousand dollars, ths
capital to be raised by meat of a loan " to be
obtained by Ilie directore of the institution." Tbe
hares were one hundred dollars each, and books

In order to facilitate the Union Bank in pro
curing a loan ol pntxw and a half, it wa
proTided in tmt tci inai im !aiinoi me ow
and interest, and that State bond ahould be issued,
and signed by Ihe Guverooi to the order of th
bank. It also provided that the capital and loter
' est of tbe State bonds should be paid by the bank
a they 41 duo, and to occurs ut payment r sub

The bonds and mortgages for fifteen millions, sub

manner nefore provided, and a president elected,
notice waa to be served Inn Ihe Governor, ' who
will thereupon execute to the bank from time to
lime, bonds io amount proportioned I the soma
subscribed and aecured lo the satisfaction of the
directore, as required by the charter." The pro
fits were to remain in bank, until tbe first bonds
became due ia iwel years. ; . .
The foregoing ia a enmmary of Ihe leading
provisions of the bank mil passed in 1837, and
approved by a subsequent legislature oa Ihe 6th of
February, 183. . . .
Ten days aftdr this approval, being oo tbe If ih
of Feb-, 1838, the legislature passed aa act sup
plementary io ths Union Bank act, the first seen si
of which waa ia ihe following word. . '
That ae eooo aa the books .of subscription for
stock, io the said Misaissippi Union Bank, are
opened, the Governor te hereby authorized and
required to subscribe, in behalf ot the State, fifty
thousand share ol the stock of the original capital
of lb eaid bank, aa already provided for in the
aid charter, and that Ihe dividends and profits
which may accrue and be declared by the Bank,
on the said slock subscribed for in behalf of the
Slat, shall be held ly eaid banks, subject lo the
control of the State Legislature, fur Ihe purpose
of Internal Improvement, and tbe promotion of
education.
Thia act consists of seventeen sections. It re
peale such part of the original charter as gave Ibe
Stat one tenth of tbe profit of th bank and a
credit of r-200,000. And it also provided
Thai the President aod Directors of tbeM
aiesippi Union Bank, or Ih managers thereof,
shall have ample power to appoint three eammt
ionere to negotiate and sell the State bonds, pro
vided for in th fifth section of the act incorporating
the subscribers lo Ih Mississippi Union Bank, io
any market within tbe United States, or in any
foreign market, under such rule and regnlaiionf
a may be adopted by aaid President aod Directors
or managers not inconsistent with the previsions
of th charter of said bank, provided, said bonds
hall not b sold under their par value.
This eupplemeotary net, which place lb Slat
as principal for five million, instead of standing as
security, waa never submitted to the people as re
quired try the Constitution. And this act not only
