Hon. Walter Clark In the Green Kg,
In the beginning it was contem
plated by our constitution makers
that while the successful candidate
should be President, hU chief rival
should be the Vice-President.- Ac
cordingly, when John Adams be
came President. Thomas Jeftersen
was chosen Vice-President. At the
next election, when Thomas Jeffer
son was chosen, Aaron Burr, who
was not in contemplation at the polls
for the chief place, jeopardized the
choice of Jefferson, and a danger

the c mntry, it will be necessary
that he, a's well as the President,
shonld reside at the Capitol, and
he should te furnished with a pub
lic residence and his sal art aug
mented out of a portion of the sums
which can be curtailed from tbe an
neal appropriations voted for the
attendance upon tbe President.
By a measure of this kind the
Vice-President can be made really
useful rnd an integral part of the
government, second only to the
President in importance, and it
would justify an appropriate salary.
This will always secure the nomina

here was no evidence of corruption
n the part of the defendant. Upon
most careful consideration of the
hole evidence, we are of the opin-
tthatthe defendant ILsrownj was
'titled to the instruction, and that
i Honor Judge Mclver should
ve given it. Eight -witnesses,
three for the State and five for the
defendant, were examined. The
testimony of two of the State's wit
nesses and that of all the defend
ants, (witnesses) is without the least
trace of inculpating matter, either
taken singly or in connection with
all the evidence in the case. In fact
upon the whole evidence, with the
exception of that of the witness for
the State (Miss Branson) there was
not one particle, either direct or cir
cumstantial, going to show that the
defendant ever had any knowledge
or information of any kind concern
ing the existence of the bill until
long after the legislature adjjurned.
Leaving out her testimcny there is
not a scintilla of proof that the de
fendant ever saw tbe bill, either in
the original or in the enrolled copy
until it was found in the old library
among tabled bills by the witness
Ellington who was the State Libra
rian, after the legislature had ad
journed. Whatever testimony there
was unfavorable to the defendant is
embraced in that of Miss Branson.
She testified that she got the bill, to
l make a copy of it, from the defend
' ant or one of the clerks on the last
lay of the session; that she kept it
1st that pnrpose for two or three
hours and then returned it to the de
fendant and read it over to him, sev

sole duty, that of presiding over a
Senate in which he has no voice, and,
sa ve in case of a tie, no vote, can be,
and often for a long period is, dis
charged by some Senator who is
elected as President pro tem. The
Vice-President is, not vested with the
power of appointing the committees,
since, unlike the Speaker of the
House of Representatives, he is not
chosen by the body over which he
presides, and not inf rt quently is of
a diffrent political party from the
ma jority of the Senate.
Thus being without power and
practically without duties, the Vice
Presidency offers few inducements
to an able, auibitious man, and the
nomination has often been refused.
Thi has in very many instances,
though not always, thrown the nom
ination as a compliment to some
man who would not by tbe sominat
irg convention ba considered for a
moment for the Pret-idency. Yet
the Vice-President has th terrible
potentially of succeeding to the
Presidency in the event of a vacan
cy. This condition has brought
about some most inconvenient re
sults. In 1810 John Tyler was nomi

the Whig party w'io differed widely

the rule has been otherwise. As

the ratio of succession f oi the Vice
Presidency has been more than one
