i on?i ler to bj ti-e true definition of a pub
lii- iifliri-r in its niiiMnal broad sens?. The
csMriice of it is, the duty of performing an .
agency, thnt is, of eloiug some iCt or acts

Puhl'c officers are' usu-iily rt quired' to
tike an oi'.h and usually a salary or fees i
nr- annexe! to tue omcc, in which rase n
is an office coupled with an interest-.'
Hut the oath and the salary or fees, are
mere incidents, and constitute no paitrTT
the office:. Where no salary or fees are
annexed to the office, it is a naked office
honorary, and is supposed to be accepted,
merely lor the public good. This definition
also excludes the idea, thit a pnb'ij office
must nave cooimuar.ee. if can nuive uo ,
difference, whether there be but out act I
r a scries of acts to be done -whether j
the office cxpiris as soon as the one act is j
" done, or is to be held for jcars or .during I
rood behavior. This incident, however, j
ntvtf not be considered for he -e there iscon
linucnce: the duty is imposed upon the
President of the Senate, and the Speaker
of the House of Representatives, for all
time to Mine. !

This is the case under constderstion.
True, It is on a larjzcr scale and covers
more ground ; but although differing in
degree it is the same in principle. A new
office is cre-ated, it is not so.iu name, but
is ia effect the office t "appointors for
officers in all corporations in which ti.e
State is a stockholder," -and in order to
create the office a duty or 'function of !m

If it be Kaid, there is this dis'inrtion :
The ""appointors general in the s-upposid

1871, docs not purport to create au office

is the legal effect of the act. When ana
lyzed, it will be found to contain two pio
visions: there shall b an agency for the
Stattflo make the appointment of all State
proxies .ami State diiQctors in corpora
tions. This creates a public office aud it
can make no diffi rence that it is culled the
office of appointors of State officers for
corporations, or has uo name given to it;
in the second place, the officers w ho are to
discharge this dutyt app anted fiy the
Grtiernl As-i4y. V.-. . V 1 ,
1 We declare our opinion to be, tiiat the
"statute is unconstitutional, and that the re
lators are not entitled to the offices claim
ed ,We put our opinion upon familiar
principles aud plain analogies W the law;,
which are intelligible to every one,-.. The.
many cases cited on the learned nigumeut
with" -Ahich we were favored, are not re-f.-tn,l
trk loriii-i 11 full tliscu-sion of them

cidate the subject.
j We will only refer to Hoke jrs Render ,
son, 4 Deveretix. p.13; tliat mine from w hicli
so much lich ore has been dug. In the able
hmI elaborate opinion of ChieT Justice Ruf-"
ffn, wc find an instance ofa publicoflicer
clearly in point, which fully confirms our
conclusion. It sustains the distinction be
tween a nuked honorary office, like theone
which we have been discussing and an of
fice coupled with an interest. It sustains
our conclusion, that the duty of appointing
t nn ojiice, constitutes of itself, a public,
officer, ami there is the further coincidence
of indefinite continuance by conferring
the new office upon the incumbents
of offices already established. On
p.:ge21 he says: The distinction
in principle between agencies of the
two kinds is obvious, the other one is for
the public use exclusively, often neither
lucrative nor, honorary, but onerous.
The other is lor the public servie'e conjoint
ly with a bencSt to the officers. The dis
tinction which I am endeavoring to ex
piess, may b.; fully exemplified by the dif
ff ience between the public agency in np
pointing, and that exercised in dischaiging
the du ic3 of a -Clerk. IJy.lhe law the
Judges of the Superior Courts, and the
Jualiccs ol the County Courts, wese au
thorizi I to appoint the Clerks of their,,
respective v ouits; that power is an ojfice
in the extended sense of that word, whIi
originally signifies duty generally-, t ut it is
not a lucrative or valuable office, it was a
duty to be p-rlormed exclusively for the
public convenience, and wtth reference to it .
alftrje, without any benefit immediate or
remote the Jadea or. Justices a-j :cji . ,
viduals.'The Courts in this respect ate not
exercising a Judicial Junction, not sci v n
for emoluments, but w ere mere minis'eis
of the law, aud naked agents of the lody
politic, to effect an end purely "pTiblic.'
Hut "when the Country has t h tough t ho;
agents atiDointed a Clerk, though fie i
also a servant of the' public, yetlv is.
stMiiething more than a naked,. ynintercsttd
politic d agent." . -j
2. Another ground was taken for the
defendants: It is the one oa which his
Honor in the Court below put Ids opinnui.
By the net ol 24th March, UT0, the Gov
ernor is authorized to appoint proxies and
directors for the State in corporations in
whicli the State was a stockholder, prior
to tlit adoption of the present Constitu
tion;' This act was assented to, ns
an amendment of the charter by the
corporators of the Atlantic & N. C.
Railroad Company, at ,u general meet-
in" in June 1870; "and it is iusisted that
the act of April 1871, which authorizes
the President of the Senate and the
Speaker ol the House of Representative?,
to appoint proxiei and directors for ti.e
State, in all corporations in which the
Si te is a -teckhoMer and repeals all laws
ia conflict therewith and I ubids the Gov
nor t' make such appointments, is uncon.
sriLJtional in this: It 5i!ate the charter
ot tlie company and varies the contract
without the. assent of the' corporator".
Heplv : It may be the c mpaiiy has a light
to complain ot this change in the charter, '
but it is an act of the Slate, and as both
the 'defendants and the plaintiff profess to
be actin" under the authority of the State,
neither can bj heard to make, the oujecj
ti,.n Rejoinder: The .lefendants title ii
n t involved; the title of the relators n
alone in quet-tion ; and they cannot make
a fooiT title under 'an act which involv-s
the charter or the company. Surrejoinder :
By Article VIIT, section 1 of the Constitu
tion : "corpor.-.tionvmiy be Jormvil under
general laws," &C ; "all general laws and
special acts passed pursuantto this section
may be ltercef;from "time to tim or reT
pealed;" truiV this does notupplj to con
poratfons chartered before the adoption of
the Constitution, but the Atlantic and N; .
C. Railroad Company by accepting the
amendment of thtir charter by act ol
5Lrch, 1870, placed itself, in that rcspectl
upon the footing of a corporation charter
eil alter the adoption of the Constitution;
ami the power ot the General Assembly to
alter the charter from time to time, or i
repeal the amendments, atlaches to t.ii
corporation. ' . ' . 1
