A PROCLAMATION.

Whereas, the General Assembly of the State of Connecticut, at its recent session, passed "An Act in relation to an Act therein named," approved, December 24th, 1862, directing the Governor to request the Judges of the Supreme Court of Errors to meet on the last Monday of December, and to lay before them for their advice an Act, approved, December 24th, 1862, entitled "An Act in addition to an Act entitled an Act relating to Electors and Elections," and request their opinion in writing upon the constitutionality thereof; and if said Judges shall be of opinion that said act is unconstitutional and shall so advise the Governor, in writing, on or before the first day of January, the Governor shall make proclamation of such fact, and thereupon all persons upon whom any duties are imposed by said act shall be released from all obligations to perform the same, and absolved from all liability or penalty for the non-performance thereof:

And whereas, in accordance with the provisions of said act, the Governor requested the Judges of the Supreme Court of Errors to meet on the last Monday in December, and solicited their opinion respecting the constitutionality of the act to which reference has been made; and the aforesaid Judges having advised the Governor in writing, that in conformity with his request, "and in pursuance of the statute law of this State on the subject, passed at the extra session of the Legislature of 1862, they have fully examined 'An Act in addition to an Act relating to Electors and Elections,' and are of the opinion that the provisions of the same relating to the election of State Officers, Senators and Representatives in the General Assembly, are unconstitutional":

Therefore, I, William A. Buckingham, Governor of the State of Connecticut, do hereby issue this my proclamation, and declare that all persons upon whom any duties are imposed by said act are hereby released from all obligation to perform the same, and absolved from all liability or penalty for the non-performance thereof.
