' Important Law C?ac.?The UAce and Du ties of tUe Clerk of tile City and Comity of New-York. The Court of Errors has been for two or three days past occupied with a case of the highest importance to the people of this city and county ; involving, as it does, some of the most valuable rights secured to them by successive Charters and confirmed by the Constitution of the State in 1821. This case is the one recently decided (in favor of the people) by the Supreme Court of the State, and involves the office, rights and duties of the Clerk of 1 the City and County of New-York ; an officer who? by the terms of the Constitution, is elected by the people every three years, and the right*,duties, privi- : leges, emoluments, A:c. of whose office consequently are the property of the people undut their sole dispo sal. The clerk of the city and county of New-York, is an officer coeval with the earliest form of our City Government, under the Colonial jurisdiction of Great Britain. By the charter of Gov. l)oiis{an of l(?S6, a Court of Common Pleas was established in this city, to be held before the Mayor, Recorder, and Aldermen ; and the town clerk, clerk of the Mayor's Court, or cleik of the city and county (all being I vested in one und the same person) was made the. clerk of this Court of Common Pleas: and from that time to April, 1443, he has exercised all the dn ties thereof. Formerly,and at the time of the adop tion of the Constitution in 1421, this County Clerk or Common Pleas Clerk was appointed by the Gov ernor und Council; but by the 4th section of the 4th irticle of the Constitution, the appointment of this 'lighly important office (as well as Sh'yiff's and our County Register) was claimed by and"Ve?ted in the !>eople ; and it was declared that the County Clerks should for ever after be chosen by the electors of the respective counties once in every three years. With this arrangement the wuole community re- j mained perfectly satisfied; it worked remarkably well, and no one ever dreamed that it would be af- ! tered, until in the session of the Legislature of 1843. i During that session, some curious movements were j set on foot, (whether or not very extraordinary \ means were used, we say not at present,) and an act j was pushed through the Legislature, called simply "An ;ict rel itingto the Court of Common Pleas for i the City und County* of New York." This was passed April 10th, 1443, and from the vagueness of us title, the community was completely deceived, and no one but those in the secret had any idea that this act proposed to strip the people of this city of | some of their most valuable chartered and consti tu tional rights. But, on inspection, it was found that this act pro posed to take away all the powers, duties, emolu ments, Sec , of the clerkship of the Court of Com mon Pleas fr?m the people's officer,she CountyClerk, (which powers, duties, Ace., the people had esi>e cially reserved to themselves under the constitution ef 1421,) and to give them all to a new officer of their own creation, a social clerk of the common pleas, and that lie was to be appointed by the First Judge of tliut court and his two associates, without consult ing the Mayor, Recorder, or Aldermen, who, by the charter of the City, and constitution of the State, are ulso Judges of the Court of Common Pleas This glaringly unconstitutional act of the Legislature of course created creat excitement in the minds of | ourcitizens, as well as deep indignation. Three of the Judges of the Common Pleas at that time, Messrs Ulehoett'er, Ingraham and.lnglis,* however, took the responsibility of appointing under that act Mr. An drew Warner as Clerk of the Court of Common Pleas, thereby giving to him all the most important duties, rights, emoluments, See., belonging to the people's own officer, the County Clerk, leaving to the latter office the mere shadow of power, stripping it of all that rendered it valuable ana important, grossly insulting the people of the city and ceunty, and endeavoring by this unjust usurpation to snatch from them their chartered rights and constitutional privileges, and conferring them all on a creature of their own creation, who thus realizes from $5000 to $10,000 a year, ana over whom the people have no control whatever. As a matter of course, proceed ings were instituted against Warner as an intruder on the |>eople's rights, and the case came up in the Supreme Court. After very able and very full argu ments on both sides, the Court deliberately decided that the actfof 1443 was unconstitutional, when Chief ] Justice Bronson delivered the following opinion:? The Peojile, ex. rtl. Conner vs. .Indrew JVarner.? Opinion of the Court.?Bkonsom J.?It will not be neces sary to recite any portion of tlio Charter or early laws relating to tho City of New York ; for it is not, and can not be denied that at the time the constitution was fram ed and adopted, there was a Court of Common Pleas for the City and County of New York, and a clerk of the City and County, who waa the clerk of that court. The clerkship of the court was not a mere incident to the office of Clerk of the County, but was a part (a) of the offico. Then came tho constitution of 182I, which pro vides, that "Sheriffs and clerks of counties, including the Register and Clerk of the City and County of New York, shall be choson by the electors of the respective counties.". (Art. IV. i) 8.) Under this provision the Clerk of the City and County of New York has been chosen tiy the electors ever sinco the constitution was. ?dopted, and has been clerk of the Court of Common Pleas down to tho time when (the defendant was appoint ed under the act of 184.1) (Stat. 1843, p. 63.) The first section of that act provided, that the clerk of the Court of Common Pleas, for the City and County of New York shall be appointed by the Court; and this new oflicer shall bo and act as the clork of the County Court. The quostion is whether the legislature hail the constitution al power to pass such a law. 1 think it had not. In el fect this statute divides the office of the Clerk of tho Cit) und County of New York into two parts ; and as to the largest share, in point of duty and emolument, takes the choice of the officer from the electors of the county, and gives the appointment to the court. If this can be right lully done, 1 do not fee any security for the residue oi the office. The Legislature may lake that also, and give the appointment of the oflicer to some court, or to the Governor and .Senate ; and thus the constitutional provi sion lor a ciioice by the electors would be completcl} nullified. 1 do not doubt that the Legislature can regu late the duties, and reduce or take away the fees of the officer, and it may perhaps abolish the office. But so long as the aiuties and emoluments of the office remain, the choice of the officer belongs to the electors of the coun ty. They cannot be deprived ot their right by changing the name of the officer, nor by dividtug it into parts, am translerring the selection of one of the officers to another body. If the office may be divided, and the duties be as signed to two officers, both must be chosen by the elec tors of the county. No other rule will give full effect to the constitution. Judgment for the people. From this decision Mr. Warner appealed,"and carried the case up to the Court of Errors ; where it was ar gued on Friday and Saturday last, which argument will bo concluded to-iiay, by Mr. Wood. Mr. James T. Bra dy and Mr. George Wood are counsel for Mr. Warner ; and John Van liuien, Esq.. Attorney General, and Mr. F. U. Cutting, are counsel for the people. The case was opened by Mr. Bkady on Friday last ; but whether it was that he was conscious he had a von oad caso to sustain, or not, he certainly made but a ver> indifferent argument ; and much infenorto the able ones ; he usually does deliver before this court of last resort, j Mr. Bk*i>t contended that the Legislature had a right ; to pass this Act violating the charter and the constitution 1 without a two-third vole 'I hat the Legislature had the power to regulate the oitlce'of County Clerk ; and that il | if they could regulate it tliev could take away any of its : lees, or duties, or do any thing that they pleased with it | That the Court of Ei ror? could nut sit in judgment on the discretion ofthe Legislature That the Legislature can if ! they please make the office of County Clerk a salaried of- \ Ken. Tliattliey can coustrutionally pass a law depriving , the Chancellor ol many ol his duties, privileges and emo luments, although he is named in the constitution That > tney can reduce ilie emolument to a year, if they please. 1 hat the Clerk of the City and Count) of [Mew York must he put under the control ofthe Legislature, or else he i

stands in his integrity, t'n tact, and immaculate. That W arner was Clci k of the Common Pica* at the time the ; Act of 1843 passed. '1 hat if the Legislature could order a County Clerk to keep a deputy, tiicy could take away his emoluments and give them to an oltlcer of their own creation, to be ap|>ointed in any manner tliey pleased. That the city charter recognized but one Court of Kccerd, (the Mayor'* Court,) which monopolized all judicial busi ness. That tlio establishment of the Superior Court took away much of the County Clerk's emoluments, and yet waa perfectly constitutional, and that there was no practical difference between that act, and the Act of 1843, now cemplnined of. That the case ofthe I'eople vs. the Mayor of New York, 36 Wendell, 680, disposes of this whole Question. That the Act of 1831, making the Court of (.ommon Pleas, and allowing this offlcor, (War ner,) to act iu the name of the County Clerk, renders the whole matter subject to Legislative control That in regard to whether the Act of 1819 was passed by a two-third vote or not, the relator (Connor) plead that the law of 1843 " wat paiirH aild thia meant virtually that j it was legally passed ; and he thatavera to the contrary, j must do ao by a distinct idea. That you cannot on j a demurrer show that a law was not passed by a two-third vote. That there was nothing on the re- | cord to show that this Act of 1843 belonged to that class of legislation which required a two-third vote That this act create* a new office, and give* power* to an officer of its own creation, and takos away no power from the Board of Aldermen; that the Aldermen never possessed the power to elect thia officer, but the Legisla ture, in creating this new office, gave the power to choofe him to tome ofthe Judges, (three only ;) and then comas up other of the Judge* ofthe same court, and aay " this is unconstitutional, because you are taking away our char tered rights." That in the Purdy case. 4 llill, StM, the matter whs different ; because there the Aldermen had always had the right to sit as Judge* ofthe Court of 'Judge Inglii, however, has always contended that the law was unconstitutional. ?

Here then is a re cognition, full and clear, of thi. clerk and of hi. da tie.; recognising the clerk oi the count) as clork of the Com mon Plea.. Till. wa. in February, 1821 ; ju.t before the a< option ol the Con.titution. On this, with tho full knowledge of all the.e laet., the convention met, and ac.ed ?ery fully, deliberately, and clearly, upon the office and duties of thi. deik; and at that time, S'ov 10, J? ,i0 fWtk of the city and conntv of New York wa? clearly aud legally the clerk of the t ouit oi I Common Pleas ot the city and county of New York, by cotemporaneous exposition, and by the gei - ral understanding and action of all parties, and down to 1813, ho did so act as clerk of the Common Plea", without interruption. All that was done up to lo.fi ! was known to the Convention, and the mode ol this clerk's election thereafter was long discussed ; and as a highly importmit office it was given to the lieople. It w as argued most elaborately, and his duties distinctly 1 defined, by the ablest talent of the < on vent ion. And oil tho 11th of Oct. 1831, a report was made by the Secreta ry of State of all the officer* in tho city and county ol N Y in obedience to a call ol the Convention ; (See I Carter and Stone's Debates, p 387, Oct. 9, ifl,.Nov ! l ?> and 7.)1 Aud when the Convention fixedthe modc ot his election, they did so with a ful Wnow^dgeofall the functions and offices appertaining to htm.it the time the Constitution was adopted, (See 35 Wendell p. M. It was not a building up of an entire n,0^i^*'u" ' in)cxis. Thus, then, tho Convention found this officer i i tence ; they found him in the lull J?!"*Vand^molE j exercise of certain duties, rights. privileg ! mentl ; they found that one of these duties was tno clerkship of the Common pleas ; they mad'? his duties ; but, moreover, they sav, that this then was, should thereaiter be elocted by the Pjopto . that they would not lop off any part ofl?U o t>ut bring him in and adopt him as he was with all the e?en tial powers then belonging to him. And ta'k,"k **e" extrinsic facts,they involve not a particle of doubt They then take this officer who had pwviously been elected by the Governor and Council; and by the Hth section o, the Constitution ol 1821, savs that hi with all clerks o counties, and sheriffs shall be chosen bv the people_ Did they mean an officer who was then clerVofthe I Pleas ! Most certainly ; or olso. speaking of^a known ' officer charged with those, bis main duties, the) *oul.'J | have made that exception. In tho 9th section when it ! says, that those clerk, of courts, except those j provided for in tho preceding section, sml 1 e npi.ointed ! by tho courts, fcc., it can only mean and n ust meani e cept those clerks of counties, including the clerk or the city and county of New York, who is clerk of thei Com ! m0n Pleas for eo nomine there are no clerks of courts namod in the 8th section. Mark of Mr. Woon here said that he adrnittedthat th* clerk o the city and county of New York was then clerk of the Common Pleas, and that such was the meaning of the 8th SCMr? Ci TTi^c.-Then there's an end of the argument ; for that admission is utter death to the tiUe> of his ch<bt Human reasoning and human langu ige^must utterly jail if there can be a doubt after tins. B"t Jl' . , ? learned friond means to grapple with this difficulty ) saying, that under this 8th section this clerk n , be el ec.ted tiy the people, and that he may also he elected b> one or more of the judges of the courtifthcegisla.ro *o order it For no other man can make so much out o nothing. But U it competent for tho legislature, after en grafting this on the fundamental law ol the land, to> a> that the clerks of other counties, after all, sbnll be ap pointed in some other way than by tho poople And f not so with regard to them, why can it be so ? ith :regard to the clerk of the city and county of Now V oik J lJoes not the mantle el'the constitution protect h m u ally as it does other county clerks ? I)\ the lUh hTO.ion of tho 4th article of the constitution.it iB ^ ?? the clerks of courts, except those whose appoii t.nent is provided for in the preceding section, ?t>all be I by tho courts of which they respectively are ?lerk,? Now, no clerks or courts are provided fof bjrJthetniwne in the preceding (8th) section. But the well .^clerksof torical fact that clerks of counties were then c erk. o certain courts, makes the exception m 'ecnon at sensible and pertinent: and its necessary eflect is to keep Countv Clerks from the purview of this section In oth er words, and to apply the provision to tho case before us, the clerkship ot the Court of C ommon t leas o! the City and County of New York was excepted from the 9th section, article 4. Constitution, because the Clerk of the City and County of New York, whose appointment was provided for in the preceding 8th section, was then Clerk of such Court of Common Pleas. This is support ed by tho contemporaneous construction put upon the 8th section of the ith article, which shows tho sum mJ meaning universally attributed to it. And I in regard to the effect of contempoianeous exposition, see 1 Coke id Instit. pages 11. 136, 131. (a well known maxim of the Law.) 1 Story's Com. on Const. 383. Now we reach this point; the 8th section clearl) em brace? this case, or it does Aot; if not, it comes within the 9th section ; and then he is to be appointed y I CW of which'he is to be Clerk. And wha was the I composition of the Couitof Common 'oas _of the UU and County of New York at the adoption of the < onsti stitution ? Why, it consisted ol the Mayor, Recorder Aldermen and Kirst Judge; and it has so continued (with the addition of two Associate Judges.) dow n to 1. 43. when this act that we complain of was passed. And this act therefore deprives the Court ofthe P?**r "^.^"'wo insr anv Clerk, and gives it to the t irst Judge and his two associates ; cutting off the chartered and constitutional riehts in tiiie particular, of the Mayor, Recorder, and i \ldermen. This alono conflicts fatally witht!>c9thsec> tion of the Constitution, if there was no other objection Those three Judges are not the Court; uev,'r^a". Court v nor does it help the matter for the act ol the Le gislatnre to sav that these three men shall, for a certain at I., tof"J ted at the proper point to say, that the act pM?e<lI in 1826 fully recognized the right ol the r?"n,y er st as the Clerk of tho Court of Common rlcas. (see Storj on the Constitution, and Coke's Institutes.) Mr. C. continued?When, then, the 1c?nR'i','ti?" that certain Clerks should be appointed by the Courts. did they mean " by the Courts as then organized or, did they mean iy Michael Ulshoeffer, K.q.,or one of the Judges, or two, or three of ^CT". or bv the Court as a perfect Court !

Why, it would be an infamous evasion I of the letter and spiiit of the Constitution. Besides, a I liberal construction is always to be made in favor o the people in all these matters ; and it is not compatible 1 with the duties of the court, alter a new principle has I been engrafted on the law and the Constitution, to give it a narrow construction, aud to make it a mean, lean spectre?a miserable phantom ol power-a gross de e, pM(] Sca fruits that tempt the eye, But turn to ashes on the lip." ... *nd Justice Bronson was right in the decision he ed. Yon can't lop off it. vitality. II you can chauge it at all you must give both branches of the office to the people and" ? to tL court. But this law doe.inoteven five it to the court.

Th<- reverend gentleman commenced his labors by saying: ,I.Jfe^ol,iductrine touchiug the supremacy of rtiePoue, can be expressed thus : Christ a..Sed church on earth unri.-r him 'V - ' ? 18 tnin8rnitted to Peter's successors, " ! 13 or^"Hry successors are the Bishops of limine and in order to Show that I Mat.- ,his doctrine laiHy* and to demolish thepredjudice th itc .lls it a novelty' and in usurpation, 1 wilf quote lor yon the words ?'f ? ami Augustine, "lam held,"sayshe, "in the ciiurch by the sumou ?1 Bishops turn bless,-d Pe er ,o whom, the Lord entrusted the government oM tlock. I will now draw niv lirst argument in favor of Peter's primacy from the words of Chr st and by poking to the 16th chapter of the Gospelaccord wSi h u,'d 18th verse, these words will be found : "J s;ty to thee that thou ait Peter and r? ,'9.J Wli bui'd my church" Now if Christ, the principal rock or foundation, be the head Peter -m |U| i' bplcalls1f "'e church is built upon him, 'k ? . u a'so,',e the head of the chuich under Christ, because the church i* fmm/ia/i u .

I pto this, the words of Christ to Peter we-e merelv promissory. "Thou art a rock, and on this rock ."" '.build my church-to thee will I give the key. of w6 ofIlHeaTen" Let us now soe if this promise was lulfllled. It was. For Christ, some days alter hia resurrection, said to Peter, "feed my lambs-feed my p1*?.!1; . *h? '?eil> be re means to govern, anil C hrist in the 10th chapter of Saint John, called hia church a sheeplold.

But to assert that he gave no power to Saint Peter on this occasion, would be against the words of Christ?"leed my lamba and feed m> sheep ?words which were addressed to Peter ex clusively, and not to the other Apostles. I must now al lude to the manner In which the name of Peter is intro duced bv tho tvangelisti?"Simon and the rest. " He sai.l to I eter and to those who were with him, "tell it to the discipjes anrf to Peter." Xhe cntical reader will say, from this way of mentioning Peter's name, that he had authority over the other Apostles. The word Michael and ins angels, in the Uth chapter of llevela nous, will not give us an idea that Michael i* an arch angel, if the words just alluded to do not justify us in snyingthat Peter was placed over the other Apostle*. The learned gentleman here again read from the 10th chapter of Matthew, a catalogue of the Apostles?the first I eter, lie. lie. This, said ne, made so powerful an impression on the mind of Beza, as to make him say that th's wordJirti, was introduced into the text by some stickler for the primacy of the Pope. I will now allude to some of the actions of St. Peter, which are recorded in the Acts of the Apostles, which evidently bespeak hi* primacy. He proclaimed the deposition of one Bishop and the election of another. He convened a council ot tfce Apostles at Jerusalem, and the Saint James was the Bishop of Jerusalem. Saint Peter opened the proceed ings of the Council. r Alter displaying a vast deal of biblical and acute criti , cism, in answering the leading objections against the pri j macy of Saint Peter, Dr. Power passed on to what he called the other branch of the subject, and said : That aa | the authority conferred on Saint Peter was purely minis , terial, and given for the benefit of the Church, it was al ways to last in Peter's successors. The ordinarv suc cessors of St. Pater are the Bishops of Home. And to Quote the words of the Bishop of Mllevi, a see in Nniae dia, who said, against a Donatist, in the fourth conturv that Linus succeeded to Peter, that Clemens succeeded Liiuis. and ko forth. St. Augustine tf.ive tho sumo rata iogue of the succession of St Peter Philip the Presbyter, in the Council of K.phesu*, said that he was sent to that i ouncil by Celettinc. tho ordinary successor of St t'eter.

The Uenural Council admitted it -ecclesi.istiral . historj attests it?every light that le.i's to Chrht.anity I throws a flood of evidence on the subject And in cori I elusion, I assert and affirm that, if we ;e>ect the Pope's ; supremacy, we may fling the New Testrment to the \ winds, and herd with the infidels.
